Thanks to everyone for participating in mine and Fozzie‘s Shopping Around the World. It’s so awesome to see the various prices, recipes and pictures of food from around the world!
Our next scheduled Shopping Around the World is for Wednesday, October 28th.
This month is a free for all. Five items of your choice for any meal or dessert or appetizer – it’s your choice.
Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine. That way we can keep track of all of the different prices. It should be interesting to see the differences between. Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.

There you are in the morning getting ready for work or school. You are running around trying not to forget anything. Was that coffee you put in the refrigerator and milk in the cabinet? You don’t know. You are running late now. You have a piece of toast in your mouth, coffee cup in your hand, your purse on your shoulder and tote bag in one hand. You go out to your car, open the door, get in and crank it. That’s when you feel that you are not alone. You look over in the passenger seat and oh my dear piggy heavens above – you see this! What the oink!? What do you do?

I thought it was time to walk through a cemetery with you once again. Today, I’m going to focus on one close to home – the historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia. Oakland Cemetery was bought in 1850 and was originally named Atlanta Graveyard or City Burial Place. It was renamed to Oakland Cemetery in 1972.
Oakland Cemetery offers twilight tours of the cemetery – how scary huh? And around this time of the year, the cemetery even offers what they call “Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours”. What a way to catch some things that go bump in the night. There are over 70,000 residents in over 40 acres that are just dying to meet you whether you have a guided tour or walk the cemetery by yourself… if you’re brave enough.
A lot of the history of this wonderful cemetery centers around the Civil War. There have been stories in the Confederate portion of the cemetery of hearing names being called as if in a roll call. But to look around, there is no one living there, just the statue of a lion guarding the unknown Confederate dead and he’s not talking.
Often the guides at the cemetery will tell you that people actually die three times. Once on their last breath, once when they are laid to rest and once when they are no longer remembered. Sounds just like a situation for a few people to come out and be remembered, doesn’t it? So the next time you’re in the area, drop by for a visit. I’ve heard they’re always looking for a good soul to fright.
There are lots of famous people buried here in Oakland. Mom took this photograph not too long ago. Do you recognize the name?
