Random Friday Ramblings

Getting a house ready to sell is still a pain.


With all due respect to the Ramblin’ Wreck over at Georgia Tech, the biggest game of the year for Georgia Bulldogs fans is the annual tilt with the Florida Gators down in Jacksonville. It may not be hyperbole to say that tomorrow’s contest is the most important one in the history of the storied series. Georgia is #6 in the BCS poll while Florida is #8. The winner of this game will have first place in the SEC East all to itself and will probably play Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and will thus have at least an outside chance at playing in the BCS Championship Game. In my preseason predictions I said that UGA would win 35-14. I still think that the Dawgs will win but that the score will be more like 45-38 because the offenses of both teams have been playing great while the defenses have been less than stellar. It should be a great game.


The good news: the 2008 Presidential Election takes place on Tuesday.

The bad news: the 2012 race for the White House begins on Wednesday.


I’m disappointed that no candidate has yet said what he or she was going to do for “Mike the Preacher.”


This is the first presidential election in which both of our children were eligible to vote. I am pleased to report that all four members of our family have already exercised that most important American privilege. Our waits in line ranged from 30 to 90 minutes. It was time well spent.


Andruw Jones was quoted this week as saying that he would like to end his career with the Atlanta Braves. A message for Braves’ General Manager Frank Wren: Please, no.


Sunday’s coming. We will celebrate once again the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s the best news of all.
