The football season is in full swing with the NFL starting this week. Here is my weekly update on all things football in Georgia. Starting with The Falcons.

ATLANTA VS. PHILLY

The NFL season for the Falcons kicked off last night as they faced the Eagles. The Falcons got off to a nice first drive, but were stopped just short of the end zone. The rest of the game was a dog fight. The Atlanta D showed its muscle but could only do so much to help the team. Matt Ryan and the offense struggled, but the one bright spot was Julio Jones who caught 10 passes for 169 yards. Final score ATL 12 PHL 17.

GEORGIA VS. SOUTH CAROLINA

UGA get’s a ranked opponent in South Carolina this week. While the Bulldogs are heavy favorites in this game, it would be unwise to sleep on The Gamecocks as they are an upcoming football program. Kickoff is Saturday at 3:30 PM.

GEORGIA TECH VS. SOUTH FLORIDA

Tech stomped all over Alcorn State last week and this week they get South Florida. South Florida is not a team to overlook as they had an outstanding season last year. Kickoff is Saturday at 12PM.

GEORGIA STATE VS. NC STATE

Georgia State is coming off a close win against Kennesaw State. This week they face the formidable NC State. Georgia State are clear underdogs and it will be interesting how the hold their own. Kickoff is Saturday at 12:30 PM.

It’s that time of year again! Baseball is wrapping up the regular season and College Football is on the horizon this weekend. I’m picking out local teams only and here my list of upcoming games.

Georgia Vs. Austin Peay

This “Practice” game for the Dawgs should be a blowout win as they take on the obviously less talented Governors. It will be interesting to see how Jake Fromm plays without some of the talent lost last year as Nick Chubb and Sonny Michel left for the NFL. Kickoff for this game is Saturday at 3:30 PM.

Georgia Tech Vs. Alcorn State

Paul Johnson’s Yellow Jackets should pull out a win this game. Plus they are at home, and this should be a major advantage. If they can get their offense rolling early it could be over sooner than later. The game Kicks off Saturday at 12:30 PM.

Georgia Southern Vs. South Carolina State

Georgia Southern ended their previous season with a loss to Coastal Carolina. So let’s hope for their sake they can pull out a win versus South Carolina State. The game kicks off on Saturday at 6PM.

Georgia State Vs. Kennesaw State

This game was played yesterday and boy was it a close one. Georgia State scored with 41 seconds left to win the game. Final score of this game was 24-20.

House plants can be difficult to care for. They are also difficult to pack and move. Here is some general advice about moving and packing plants.

Moving to a new state

It should be noted that checking state regulations on plants is a must. Some states have strict regulations on types of plants that can be brought in. Some states will stop moving trucks at the borders to check for plants.

Moving Plants

Most moving companies won’t move house plants, period. Either it is the damage that might happen during packing, loading, or unloading. It is advised that you pack them in your own personal car.

Day of move

Wrap your plants in packing paper or newspaper. For taller plants pack the pot with moss and wrap the pot with wrap. Place smaller plants in a box. Fill space between plants with newspaper or packing paper.  When you arrive at your new home unload your plants first. Give them water and set them in a safe area of the home.
