      Well I honestly had no idea. I really do not keep up much with too much of this kind of thing as I only view any movies or shows on line.

      I think all of them must have been in town a few weeks ago when I went through!!!

      Angels are on the way through headed to North Georgia...can you say "parking lot" on I-75?

      Thanks for keeping me in the know. Angels are headed your way this evening ps
