Money Mondays


One of the many things I loved about living in Atlanta back in the early 90's was the entrepreneurial spirit of quite a number of the residents. The populous was very progressive and everyone helped to promote the next man as well as themselves. These days we live in the "me" generation, where it's every man for himself. I've never been that way, I'm always down to help someone reach their dreams.

While in Atlanta, I had the opportunity to spend some time with bloggers Tony Oh and Raw Dawg Buffalo. Those are some enterprising brothers.

Tony is amazing with a camera. Some of my best photo's to date were taken by him. He was responsible for all of the beautiful pictures taken at the Bloggers' Delight book signing. If the picture looked average, chances are, I took the picture.

If you are in the Atlanta area, or can afford a plane ticket and a hotel stay, Tony is your man. I'm sure he will give you a great deal. Here is his info.

Here are a couple more pics from my time in the ATL

Me and the Mrs.


Tony Oh!, CAPCity, and me.


I also had the opportunity to visit
Brain Cell - A Store for Dogs
572 Edgewood Ave
Suite 117
Atlanta, GA 30312


The store is owned by the in-house PhD, Torrance Stephens
His store is located at the corner of Edgewood and Randolph. Edgewood runs parallel to Auburn Avenue where you can find The King Center. Brain Cell is around the corner from the King Center. Also around the corner from his store is Thumbs Up Diner, a great place to eat and a winner of many awards in the city. For the ladies, there is a boutique owned by the wife of
Big Boi of OutKast.


From the window, it looked like they had some nice stuff. The store was closed during my visit,and unfortunately I forgot the name of it. Nevertheless, if you have a dog, and want to buy some great product, get in touch with Brain Cell. They will ship the goods to you.
