We're house hunting in Athens, Georgia this week (which birthed REM, the B52s and Widespread Panic). Here's a photo of my DH during a warm weather visit.

Asylum Street Spankers

Here's the band we went to see this past weekend for our anniversary. This song criticizes noisy leafblowing neighbors that disturb the sleep of the nocturnes.

The woman is playing a saw with a violin bow. It's the ghostlike sound that you hear.

Athens Dog Chillaxin'

Saw this dog in the window while driving around Athens, GA this past weekend and had to snap a photo. He's chillaxin' --- chillin' and relaxin' at the same time! With a view of the world.

Jimmy Buffett | Bama Breeze

From Jimmy Buffett's latest album, "Take the Weather With You". This video (one of my favorite songs on the album) was shot in the blown out hull of the Firedog Saloon in Bay St. Louis, AL. I had been to the Firedog, before the whole neighborhood was swept away by Katrina. A family friend had a guest house within walking distance; the entire street of homes was simply swept away.

A fantastic song that pulls at the heart strings.
