Sweet Home Alabama

If Virginia is for Lovers then Alabama is for anglers.  Who knew that there were 47 reservoirs, 23 lakes, and 77,000 miles of rivers and streams?  Some of the 11 million fishermen who fish in the state, that’s who.  And while other areas offer trails that focus on history or wine, the Alabama Bass Trail is oriented towards fishing.   Jacob DeBin with an eight pound largemouth from Lake Autauga.   The warming temperatures are…

Give Me a Break

Beat the Post-Holiday Blues

Every year, the Fall and Winter holidays seem to begin earlier and earlier.  Part of me likes to keep the events separate while another part of me sort of likes the fact that everyone is happy for a long period of time.  One part that I always dread is January 2nd, because on that day the celebrations come to an abrupt end.
