All the cloths ripping and teeth gnashing be damned, the Atlanta Braves and their Colorado based corporate overlords broke ground on the " brand spanking new " state of the art
THIS is a partial view from the TED with the city skyline
Finding that silver lining, or just rising from some new ashes - the city of Atlanta and the area around Turner Field will , in the long run, be much better off IF the fantastic plans of Georgia State come into being.

Fingers crossed that this is no harbinger of things to come, the weather here has been pure Autumn - warmish sunny days and down right chilly nights. So, time to switch from burgers to more fall friendly menus!
braised in red wine and apple cider
( canned )
( they came in late this year, we will eat them as
long as they are here ! )
This was a great way to cook a little pork loin. Sear the fat side for a good 3-4 min flip over in your pan - add some veggies, I had onions, carrots, and garlic - and what ever you want for liquid. We had an open bottle of red wine and some apple cider - boom. Its a fast braise too, with pork which is so lean anyway. You have to have a pan with a lid, I use one of my tagines but any thing will do.
We has a friend over for supper and it was a lovely night.
- Florida State
- TEXAS A&M
- Notre Dame
- OLE MISS
- Michigan State
- SOUTH CAROLINA
- Arizona State
- Kansas State
- Ohio State
- Oklahoma State
There you go - from 6 to 13 ( 14 in the other poll ) and some pure old fashion SEC hate there at the top. I dont know who can beat FSU, they play Clemson this weekend so we can see. If they beat the Tigers the Oct. 18 FSU/ Notre Dame game is huge. It will not be the Gators, they took three overtimes to get past Kentucky this weekend.
It is a bit of a rough road to keep the SEC National Championship record going - everyone above us has to play each other.
38 - 35
Thunderstorms pushed back kick off a long time yesterday - and a drenching rain came back during the game. There was a downpour late in the 4th quarter when the Bulldogs went for a game tie-ing field goal, sailing a tad right in the drenching.
After losing to Texas A&M in their season opener, and not looking as sharp as they should have in a victory against East Carolina, the Gamecocks needed a big win, and they got it. Columbia's THE STATE declaring it " one of the biggest in SC history" Bottom line for UGA is, even in 2014 - we can not overlook or ever take Steve Spurrier lightly. The past isn't past in the SEC - and ghosts of UGA failures in the now distant past are still alive with us.
You think you are going to be National Champs, you are not going to be National Champs.... well, not just yet. If you have to lose, lose early.... giving everyone else time to lose as the lengthy fall goes on.
I had planned on just a little brunchy tailgate for just Neil and I
Little Tomato Sandwiches
We had non football loving pals coming over post game, but the back up made it a game watching party - you can tell how excited they were, They brought over like 4 dozen chicken wings thought -
and in the end, we all had a fine time.

Walked out early this morning and just laughed at just how chilly it was. It may be coming in fast this go round. We had to get some time on the trail, so today, fully covered and sprayed , we went the other way than we normally do - which means all Koda does on not always walked over ground is sniff and pee, so it was really more of that than a walk. Turned into a beautiful afternoon, Im sure I looked odd covered head to toe....
The old rail road bridge is still there going this way
First night of an extra blanket on the bed, and I brought a much loved plant into the house. Way to early for this and when it is like 50 come next April we will all be out in shorts and such, but the very first go round of the year is shocking....
