Voting Registration for Blossom the Pig

Written by Lillian Tram on November 9th, 2011

 

Today at the voting polls, Georgians are voting on Sunday alcohol sales and sales tax.  I was reminded of an article I came across about a pig receiving an invitation to register to vote.  I thought it would be a fun story to post.

 

Pigs are clever animals but are they clever enough to vote?  Apparently, at least one council thinks a pig named Blossom can, and given our current economic woes, we could use all the help we can get.

The Muppets Invade WWE on Halloween

Written by Lillian Tram on October 31st, 2011

 
I’ve watched a few wrestling matches but it’s never really sparked my attention until now. The Muppets are coming to Atlanta to put on an epic show. It’ll be a great way to celebrate Halloween. Check out the event at Phillips Arena or watch it on USA Network at 9pm eastern. I will be cheering on Ms. Piggy and if the video below is any indicator, she might have a few moves of her own for the arena.

Priscilla Pink Pig Ride @ Macy’s

Every year since 2003, the Macy’s at Lenox Mall in Atlanta, GA has hosted the Priscilla pink pig train ride. This train ride tradition has been around for over 50 years in Atlanta, with most of the proceeds going to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This ride runs for a little over two months during winter. The line for the pink pig train ride is more popular than the line for Santa Claus during Christmas time. I went last year to Macy’s to check out what all the hype was about and to donate to a good cause. Every single time I tried to get on the ride, the line was ridiculously long so I’d wait a while and came back but the line never died down. It was getting close to Christmas time and I wanted to go before the ride closed up until next year. Tickets were only $3 which was super reasonably priced.  No wonder the ride beats out Santa Claus every year. Taking photos with Santa does not come cheap. The pink pig ride was enjoyable because it took you through a life-size story book. I also took photos with Priscilla the Pig who was more than willing to ham it up for the camera. All in all, I had a good time and will go again this year even though I was the only one over 12 years old that didn’t have a child riding this train. Visit the photo gallery for more pictures of this event.

Monkey Riding a Pig

Written by Lillian Tram on October 26th, 2011

 

This picture and video made me smile and I wanted to share them with you.  The baby monkey and pig are so adorable!  Hopefully the video makes you smile too.  Careful though, if you watch the video too many times the lyrics will get stuck in your head…

 

Here’s a youtube clip of baby monkey riding on a pig song.
