The Grohs Fruit And Vegetable Stand

The Grohs Fruit And Vegetable Stand

For all of your fresh fruit and vegetable needs pay a visit to the Grohs vegetable stand, located across the street from Rip-Off-Ricks. You will not be disappointed. You will fall in love with both Mr. and Mrs. Grohs. They are down-to-Earth people who put their customers first. You are their number one priority and it shows. They go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied.

You will find only the freshest fruits and vegetables. I have purchased peaches, tomatoes, squash, watermelon, cantelope, onions and corn on the cob.They have the best peaches I have ever eaten. I was extremely happy with all of my purchases and the best thing was that I could taste each individual taste and you won't find that with store bought. That only comes from Georgia-grown! Don’t forget to check out the quality pictures they sell as well. Be sure sure to tell them the Ward's sent you.

 

Georgia College Campus Offers Sanctuary for Birds

“Our campus is one of the best areas around for birds,” said Dr. Bob Chandler, professor of biological and environmental science. “They are attracted especially to our flowering plants and our really old trees where they can roost and perch.”

The campus is home to at least 15 to 25 bird species.

Students, faculty and staff alike show a great interest in their overhead friends.

Bird feeders erected across campus supplement the bountiful natural food for the feathered flyers.

Decorating On A Dime Part 1

Decorating On A Dime Part 1

In today's economy you may think you cannot afford that decorating project or be able to  remodel a room in your home, but I'm here to tell you, YES YOU CAN! We just rebuilt our kitchen on a dime. Living on a fixed income meant we had to be careful with our already strained budget.

We started by comparing our options. For the walls,floors and the ceiling we went with OSB instead of drywall or paneling. This saved us hundreds of dollars. To prepare the osb we primed it first with Kiltz ( the cheapest at Wal-Mart, any primer will do.) Then chose Color Place (Lemonade slush at Wal-Mart) for the walls, to lighten up our dark small kitchen.
