This afternoon I went to the Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll located in Huntsville, AL. This was very interesting and I learned alot more about Huntsville, AL. There was characters there portraying the personality of different prominent people that are buried there.
Here’s some of the ones that stood out to me: Madam Mollie Teal popular “Madam” who donated her establishment ot be uses as a hospital by the City of Huntsville. Samuel B. Moore a socially prominent bachelor and plantation owner who honored his prize cow, Lily Flagg, with a party in 1892. LeRoy Pope “Father of Huntsville” lawyer, planter and influential pioneer settler of Huntsville, AL. Mr. Pope built most of the businesses downtown Huntsville.
Dr. William H. Burritt Huntsville physician who bequeathed his home atop Monte Sano, the “Burritt Museum,” to Huntsville if they would put his ashes in a urn atop the musuem but they never did. His ashes ara located in the muslim at Maple Hill today. He was a very prominent man in his time.
This is held every year so next year make sure you go and learn more about the history of Huntsville, AL.
Here’s some pictures of the 2008 Maple Hill Cemetery stroll.

Today I took a drive out to Butler’s Mill in Jackson County, AL which is located about 6 miles from downtown Woodville, AL. At one time it served as a processing plant for grinding corn and wheat into meal and flour. The process was powered by a water wheel type turbine that came from the Paint Rock River.
I stopped at the store and had me a good ole’ bologna sandwich. They make the best bologna and cheese sandwiches and the price was not to high. I purchased 3 sandwiches, 3 bags of chips, and 3 drinks and it was $7.55. Wow! What a deal!

The decorations and food was provided by “Talk of the Town”. The colors were hot pink, silver and black. The theme was “Take My Breathe Away”.There were 22 seniors, 36 juniors, 19 dates and 10 faculty members present, and a Scottsboro policewoman was on duty.
For the very first time, parents were invited to attend the prom. They were asked to stay in the roped off area and watched until the lead out was over. Also they had sophomore prom assistants in which they wore black pants and white shirts, and ties.

Today turned out to be a pretty day. Maybe Spring has finally sprung! I hope we don’t get another hard freeze like we got last April 15. I am scared to plant flowers right now because usually we will have one more freeze before it starts getting nice out.

On March 15, 2008 we got some high winds, rain and hail. It lasted about 2 minutes or so, and then it moved out. There was some parts all around in the different surrounding counties that got damage from the hail. Everyone should check their roofs, gutters, HVAC unit to make sure there is not any damage, and if you think so call your insurance company and get a adjuster to come out and check for any damages. Here is some pictures of the hail.

How many people have served on Jury Duty? I think everyone should have to serve at least once in their lifetime. It is a great learning experience and you learn alot about your county, and meet alot of different people.
I realized that my life was not so bad after all compared to some. It really was a eye opening experience for me. The pay was only $10 a day, and nickel a mile. Of course though if you work for employer they reimburse you back your normal pay for that day. Unfortunately I don’t have a employer because I am self-employed.

It is almost time for Spring Break in Jackson County, AL. Spring Break will start March 17-21 2008. At least the weather man is giving nice weather for the kids. This year we are not planning on going on vacation for Spring Break. With the gas prices, and the economy not the greatest we decided to save our money and spend it wisely in the next several months.
I am sure people are still planning on traveling and taking their vacations despite the gas prices. Most people don’t think about saving until it is to late.

On February 23,2008 I volunteered for a Chili Challenge in Scottsboro, AL. The proceeds went to a good cause-Habitat for Humanity. This was my second year to volunteer to help with this, and I really enjoy it and I have a good time. I took some pictures of some of the volunteers that took time out of their day to help with this event. UNCLAIMED BAGGAGE CENTER
