In reference to the TV guide you publish. This new edition, to be honest, sucks. You leave out the History Channel, HBO, the Mexican stations. You don’t even publish what goes on after midnight. It ain’t working.
Buddy Carter just lost my vote forever, thinking of a food tax. I’d drive to South Carolina before I’d pay a tax on food. We have so many in Georgia on food stamps and don’t even have to pay taxes on food.
I pay every month for weekly garbage pickup. So I do not know why I’m being charged once a year for solid waste. I do not use that facility so I should not be charged for it. Not only that, they raised it $50 this year.
Hey, folks, I went to the new Ludowici Alltel store with cash to pay my bill. They informed me that there was a $3 charge for paying in cash. Where’s the value of our dollar gone? Shame on you, Alltel.
The new year is off to a good start. I went to work because I felt like it, when I felt like it, to do something I enjoy doing and got paid for it. I was working for the nicest people in the world. And it was 75 degrees out there.
Families come in all different shapes and sizes. Some have lots of children, some have lots of puppies, some are just husband and wife. You can go through life without children and be just as happy as a husband and wife with a houseful of kids.
