Chili Cook-off at Dill's in Royston

If you missed it then you missed out.  The Chili cook-off at Dill’s in Royston this past Friday, 8 March, was the place to be.  With a $250 cash prize for the best chili!  Chili is amazing in that each recipe can contain basically the same ingredients but come out tasting distinctly different.  Most of us when we hear the word “Chili” we think those little packets they sell on the baking aisle.  Let me assure you that this was not the case with the contestants here.
Contestants were able to bring their slow cookers packed with their best recipe and allow judges and shoppers a sample of each.  I admit I took a few samples!  Contestants als ...

Happy New Year From NEGA Direct

Well, 2012 came and went with barely a whimper.  Seems like everyone was wrapped up in the thought that maybe the Mayan’s were right and the world would just cease to exist.  With all the bad news that came right there at the end it almost seemed possible.  In the end though, time just kept marching on and here we are in 2013! 
I know I, like most of us, have things I want to accomplish this coming year.  2013 is before us with all the opportunities waiting to be discovered.  All we have to do is go and get them!  I love the New Year, that feeling of freshness and the idea that we have a clean plate, the old is gone and the new is here!  It remi ...

A great day for a Parade

This past Saturday Royston residents got treated to an awesome parade.  There were floats and tons of candy for all the kids.  I also experienced one of the loudest fire engines I have ever heard in my life.  We got to Royston right at 430 and found a spot on the street in front of Hall's and had a great view.  A good crowd came out to see the parade but I think the rain in the area may have caused some folks to stay home.
Lots of candy! I really mean that, it was basically raining candy.  Personally we scored about 7 pounds or so of the sugary treats.  Not sure if we can even eat it all but we couldn’t just leave it on the street!  Favorite moment ...

Fall Festival Fun in Royston

We came, we saw, we had cheesesteaks.
This past Saturday, October 13, 2012, my family and I went to Royston’s Fall Festival.  There were a ton of people there so we ended up parking down the street at the Methodist Church where they were having a pumpkin carving demonstration.  We made our way down Bowers Street towards the sound of music and the smells of food.
We walked around and saw all the booths.  There was free cotton candy and my youngest son got a free balloon which made his day and amazingly hasn’t popped yet.  The bounce house set up was amazing except I wasn’t allowed to go in one, something about being too old or too big.
The music was ro ...
