Tee Time with Tony and the Master’s 2018

Returning to Augusta National to play in his First Major in three Years is Tiger Woods. I am very intrigued by the return of Tiger Woods. He is going for his fifth green jacket after missing 12 of the most recent major championships because of his injury. Can he still win? Does he still have it? At 42 years of age, will his body hold up? Is he mentally healed from all the personal issues? The definitive answers are days away.

There’s this place. A wonderful place. Some call it a gathering place where stories live and adventure thrives. A little place here in a small city named Conyers where lives are shared through stories; such wonderful stories. I found out about this place just like anyone else would, by word from a friend.

Irish Bred Pub, Covington, GA by Jason Fuchs (The Fooding Fuchs)

Irish Bred Pub is a franchise based out of the West side of Georgia and two cities in Alabama.  Owners Jack and Lisa Phillips remodeled the former Church Street Antiquities building in 2016. You’ll find them on the Square next door to The Cork.

The ART of Tattooing by Fred Besaw (Frogman)

Throughout history, humans of all cultures have been distinguishing their bodies with art. From paying tribute to their religions, marking social hierarchy, or simple body beautification, this form of art has been documented as far back as 3250 BC.
