ADOPT A PET: Meet Jesse

ADOPT A PET: Meet Jesse

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a companion for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

According to the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia, Jesse is an Austrailian Cattle Dog mix puppy. She has a happy sweet temperament. Still being a young dog, she is active and loves to play. Donna isn’t housetrained or declawed. But she’s eager to be trained and have a loving family of her own.

Coca-Cola Freestyle coming to Five Guys

Coca-Cola Freestyle coming to Five Guys

ATLANTA -- Five Guys has become the largest restaurant chain to sign up for the Coca-Cola Freestyle dispenser system.

The burger chain will begin installing two Coca-Cola Freestyle fountains in all company-owned restaurant locations across the country next month.

Five Guys has about 875 restaurants across the United States and Canada. It began testing Coke's Freestyle system in the Atlanta market, home to 24 of its restaurant locations, in 2010.

The touch screen-operated Freestyle lets consumers create their own personal and customized drinks, dispensing more than 100 sparkling and still beverage brands from one machine.

Firehouse Subs also recently adopted the Freestyle for its restaurants.

Alpaca Yarns USA: Open House Event

Alpaca Yarns USA:  Open House Event

Alpaca Yarn USA first opened its Forsyth County doors in June of 2011.   Their shop is filled with all things Spinning, Weaving, Knitting & Felting related!

It is the perfect stop for the experienced.  If you’ve been spinning long you’ll most definitely appreciate that Alpaca Yarn USA is the largest seller of Spinning Wheels in the area (possibly even the state of Georgia).  They carry seven different models in stock and offer a very popular “try before you buy” option – uncommon when other stores need to special order the equipment.  You’ll also notice their beautiful selection of looms – carried in stock as well.
