Well, it almost goes without saying, but we all do, Happy 4th July! Another year older and lets hope wiser, but when you look at the world you begin to wonder if the human race will ever learn.
For those that know me, you’ll be aware that I’m originally from England and contrary to a number of friends and acquaintances, no we don’t celebrate this holiday back in England. As I say, ‘we don’t celebrate our loses’, but I do add that I’m glad we did otherwise I won’t be here in the US now.
When I updated this site to it’s new look I wanted to include a regular’ish post to be added and I had every intention to make it every couple of weeks and at least once a month, but things happen as we all know. I don’t know about you, but I have been crazy and this wish went right out the window because I haven’t pasted since March, and that’s not that regular is it!
With this in mind, I’m turning over a new leaf and making the time to post something, fingers crossed, I did it once for years on a weekly basis in the wjhnews so I can do it here.
So, what’s new, well I would like to start, not necessarily with the latest news, more of a combination of old and new. The old is more of a thank you to Wayne Morgan for the use of some of his photography on this site. When I did the new look I wanted to include local images and a few weeks ago I even changed the yourwarelocal.com home page people to locals as well, so thank you to all involved in allowing me to use them on the site.
I don’t know if you were aware, but in the last week, Forbes (who promote themselves as the leading source for reliable business news and financial information) announced the list of richest people in the world. Now if you’ve ever looked into this, you’ll know, or at least have a fair idea of who this is.
So I’ll give you some clues in case you haven’t heard.
1. It’s a guy, sorry ladies, but no surprise there unfortunately.
2. No, he’s what I would call middle aged so no it’s not a football player
3. You’ll more than likely use something he makes, owns, runs, whatever today, may be more
“The world is a better place because Steve was a part of our lives”
“This is so heartbreaking. Steve Bean will be truly missed. He was such a wonderful man”
“What a true and wonderful gentleman, artist and friend”
“Steve was one of the most talented artists I have ever known”
“The world lost a good man today!”
This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in the State of Georgia. As a part of the Severe Weather Awareness Week activities the statewide Tornado Drills will Be held on Wednesday, February 4th. If, for any reason the drill needs to be postponed an updated Public Information Statement will be issued by the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville on Wednesday morning.
As I’m entering this article, the rain is coming down outside like stair rods! Now if you don’t know the expression, I’m not that surprised, it comes from the North of England and basically means ‘Heavy!’
But all that aside, I know currently there’s a heavy storm warning at the moment but did you know it was going to be bad, or would you know if it’s likely to get worse. Well you would if you visited here and followed the link to the site we maintain with the help of the Ware County CERT offices.
Several years ago, when we had the year of the forest fires, Perry Blackburn who works at the Ware County EMS & CERT got together with yourWARELOCAL.com (Derek Harrison & serva.com) to make a website that would have regular alert messages that effected Ware County, from floods, fires, tornados, whatever. So at that time serva.com committed their services to keep this up to date FOC for the Ware County community.
