Nophest Music Festival - April 20th through 22nd in Atlanta
Topic: Miscellaneous 11:41 am EDT, Apr  6, 2007

The culturally significant day of April 20th (4.20) also happens to be the birthday of Nophi Founder Randy Garcia and 11:11 Teahouse owner Penny Balmes. If that isn't coincidental enough for you, April 19th happens to be Nophi Co-Chair Matt "MauiThrev" Simpson's Birthday. Do you see where this is going? Because you asked for it, because we all love to party, and because now we have a damn good reason to blow it up one more time, We are proud to announce our Spring Party: 420 @ 11:11

11:11 Teahouse:
"There are a variety of places to perch throughout the teahouse. The front deck is a great place to watch the commuters’ journey to and from work, the neighbors walking their pets, and the sun setting over the Atlanta skyline. The interior is spacious and clean, with the most unique window seat in the city. The variety of scents & textures stimulate the senses while you peruse the shelves. Make a point to spend an afternoon in the medicinal herb garden seeing first hand how the nourishing plants look, smell and grow."

Pizza boxes carry wanted posters
Topic: Society 11:08 pm EDT, Mar 26, 2007

Customers at some suburban pizza parlors are getting something extra with their pepperoni and mushrooms — wanted posters for parents accused of failing to pay child support.

The idea came to Cynthia Brown, executive director of the Butler County Child Enforcement Agency, while she was ordering pizza.

"It suddenly dawned on me that most people running from the law don't eat out, they order pizza," said Brown, whose county is north of Cincinnati.

Enforcement agencies across the country use a variety of methods to locate support scofflaws and collect past-due payments. Virginia has issued subpoenas to cellular phone companies seeking addresses and phone numbers. California's Kern County seizes and auctions parents' vehicles, with proceeds going to the children, said Kay Cullen, a spokeswoman for the National Child Support Enforcement Association.

State child support agencies collected more than $23 billion in child support for 17.2 million children in 2005, but the cumulative past-due child support since the agencies were first formed more than 30 years ago is $106 billion, Cullen said.

"While we have made progress, putting the wanted posters on pizza boxes is an example of the innovation and commitment that we need," she said.

WOW......There are so many things to say but let's leave it at that

Topic: Arts 6:46 pm EDT, Mar 25, 2007

n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.

(added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)

You've come to a friendly place, and we welcome you to our book-lovers' community. Our members love books enough to let them go — into the wild — to be found by others. Sharing your used books has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BookCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a library. BookCrossing is a free online book club of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind. Inside, you'll find millions of book reviews and hundreds of thousands of passionate readers just like you.

Let's get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after reading a book that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? gives you a simple way to share books with the world, and follow their paths forever!
The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...

1. Read a good book (you already know how to do that)
2. Register it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book
3. Release it for someone else to read (give it to a friend, leave it on a park bench, donate it to charity, "forget" it in a coffee shop, etc.), and get notified by email each time someone comes here and records a journal entry for that book. And if you make Release Notes on the book, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!

Sounds easy, right? Well it is. It's also a fascinating exercise in fate, karma, or whatever you want to call the chain of events that can occur between two or more lives and one piece of literature. Oh, and we should mention, it's absolutely free and absolutely private, too.

So go grab a book or two from your shelves now (they're not doing anyone any good there, are they?), register them here, jot down our URL and the BCID we'll give you inside the covers, and then give them away or leave them where someone will find them.

This is an interesting concept
