Jim Carrey was right in Yes Man.  Every pretty girl DOES deserve to go to a ball.  In fact, everybody does.  So, do it right this year and go to the Honky Tonk Ball at Smith's Olde Bar.  The Western Sizzlers are playing.  Describe as "Lynyrd Skynyrd, Status Quo, Blackberry Smoke, Waylon Jennings and The Georgia Satellites all together,"  It's gonna be a big time.  If you've ever been to Smith's on Halloween, you know the costumes will be out and freaky.   Early show starts at 7.  Tickets are $10 at the door.  Through together a costume and have a ball...

Today's full day plan can take up to about 8 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 8 miles  equates to about 6 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 1 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

8 miles of driving
pounds of carbon dioxide
1 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.

Wonder why a gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) generates 20 pounds of green house gas?  Check out this article at Slate.com.
