Goodbye Uga VI

He was a DGD.

ATHENS, Ga. -- Uga VI, the beloved University of Georgia mascot, has died from congestive heart failure at his home in Savannah.

Uga will be buried in a vault in the Southwest corner of Sanford Stadium with his predecessors. Private ceremonies are expected early next week.

Uga VI became UGA's mascot in 1999. He was the son of Uga V, the only college mascot to land on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

University of Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans called it "a sad day for the entire Bulldog nation."


I've wanted to change my blog name for a LONG time now. I don't like it being named after our name. No offense if your blog is named after you, it just doesn't work for me. I've been trying to think of a new name for over a year now and I think I've finally nailed it. The current header is most likely temporary but the name is set. It's "helix." I have a few ideas for headers and perhaps I'll post them here and ask for votes.

The name comes from my favorite shop in Athens, GA. They always had the coolest gadgets, purses, dishes, computer accessories, kitchen accessories, toys, kids clothes, decor. . . I could go on and on. So, today it hit me. I was thinking about new names for the blog and looking through some old photos and SHAZAM!

half off

This week on SYTYCD I was totally disgusted with the dresses that only covered half of the girls' bodies. From one angle they were fully clothed, but from another there was nothing but a strap. Bleh! I thought it was indecent and totally distracting. I am rarely vocal about this kind of thing but I thought it was inappropriate for national television.

That said, here is a video from last year. Sabra was my fav and this is one of my fav dances.

Dorothy was right.

There's no place like home. I poached this pic from Lola's blog. If you didn't know, it's a pic of Salem, my hometown! Isn't it lovely? It's so nice to be home.
What I missed about Utah: the mountains, the snow (not really), my family (especially the kiddies).
What I miss about Georgia: the humidity (keeps my skin nice), the green-ness, the food, the "ya'lls" and "fixin's", our friends!
