The wonderful (ahem) Atlanta Blogger group is thinking about hosting a mini Blog Fest of our friends and fellow bloggers next summer. The summer of 2011. We are taking a poll and asking if anyone would be interested in coming. You have a whole year to plan... What do you think? And no you do not have to live here in Atlanta - we want you to come meet us and let us meet you!

Show and Tail Tuesday - it was indeed a luna moth. Get this - they live only 8 days, they never eat, and their purpose is to reproduce. They are rare and in some areas they are an endangered insect.

Some Movie trivia:

1. Who directed the original Rear Window, remade in the 90s with Christopher Reeve?

2. Which blonde actress made her debut as a producer in Private Benjamin?

3. Which woman starred in and directed The Prince of Tides?

4. Which “man with no name” directed The Bridges of Madison County?

5. Who directed the first three Godfather films?

Answers tomorrow.

Too far for me to travel, but it does indeed sound like fun!

I know all the answers to the movie trivia except for The Godfather movies. Hmmmm, I'll have to look that answer up now that you've piqued my interest!!!

I'm sure this is just for Georgian Bloggers, right?

I would love to come, but wouldn't promise I'll make it, will just say we'll see.
As for the movie trivia, sorry I didn't realize how few movies I actually guess they just aren't my thing.

Together We Save said...

Sounds fun... I would love to meet fellow bloggers. So hopeful my schedule would allow for a quick trip!

That corgi :) said...

okay, I hate to be "dumb" but would it be held in Atlanta?? I think it would be fun but right now I can't see us going unless we won a lottery or somthing, LOL. but you never know!

interesting facts about the luna moth, wow only 8 days! and they are sooooo pretty.

looking forward to the answers tomorrow on the movie trivia,I think I got at least 3 right :)

Hi Sandie...I'm so glad I was not born a luna only 8 days? Dreadful. Live just to reproduce? Double dreadful. But never eat? Oh, perish the thought. Cute post. Susan

Debbie said...

I'm so daft that I don't know a single trivia answer. I have a few hunches, but I none for sure.

And Atlanta? Hmm.... I might consider it. Can I wear a bag over my head and come as the Unknown Blogger? Hmmm?

A Hopeful Heart said...

WEll, you know we are hoping to move back to the South, anywhere from Montgomery, Alabama down to Florida...which means, a trip to Atlanta would be doable for me...but if I'm a Florida blogger or an Alabama blogger would you still let me join in the fun?

And the only one of the trivia questions I know is #1...that would be Alfred Hitchcock. And incidentally, I am probably the only person in America that doesn't like Rear Window (and you know how much I LOVE the old movies). I love Grace Kelly's dresses and Thelma Ritter's wit, but I hate the idea of a Peeping Tom being a hero.

Anyhow, hope you are having a fabulous day.

What a great idea...I want to go to Atlanta next Summer - by then I'll have a car and maybe I can go to that big Aquarium...I've never been in Atlanta!

That Luna moth is magnificent! It has a face :-) I love the fern-like antennae!

So sad those beautiful cratures only get to live 8 days - I want to see one in person. I never have seen one except on pictures. Did that You Tube video have no sound? I coldn't get any sound.

Well, got to get busy -we have an apartment inspection tomorrow ...Talk with you later, Sandie :-)

Good to be a Queen said...

Count me in Sandie!!!!
