Hey +Alfred Hamilton I don't and don't really have a lot of metro insight. If I hear of something I'll let you know though!

I've been wanting to do something to promote local business growth, so starting today we've launched two Small Business Saturday initiatives. What do you think?

BRRRR!! It's 23° in Cartersville dropping to 7° tonight! Speaking of freezing temps.. 

DID YOU KNOW? The pressure between the ice & faucet is what causes pipes to burst, not that water has frozen in the pipes. Dripping your faucets helps relieve the pressure. Please remember to take care of pets, plants & drip your faucets!

3 weeks from tomorrow is Veterans Day. Please think about the veterans in your life & give/send them a card, call them up or at least send them a message somehow letting them know you appreciate their service.

I was in the middle of a hectic day when my CHECK ENGINE light came on. I pulled in to my oil change spot where the guys read the code & recommended going to ShiftsGood Transmission. I went straight over there mid-afternoon thinking "this can't be good." I was surprised.. Reese with ShiftsGood diagnosed the issue & while it wasn't "minor" it certainly wasn't major. The quality & speed of service was GREAT.. along with the pricing! ShiftsGood Transmission is THE place to get your transmission cared for by folks who know what they're doing inside & out. Thanks for the great service ShiftsGood!

We absolutely love eating at Swheat Market! Not just my wife & me, but our young daughters. Every single thing we've tried (still working through the menu) has been phenomenal. Fresh, seasoned & healthy - you feel good eating here AND it's a really cool setting. Some of our favorites are the house salad, veggie wrap, black bean burger, chicken fingers & fries (the girls), Cuban (great if you're really hungry) & some of their specials of the day along with their soups. The chef puts a lot of thought into the flavors & uses top-notch FRESH ingredients. Swheat Market is by far our favorite place to eat in Cartersville.

No doubt Coffey BJJ is an AMAZING place for people of all ages, but my review is specifically for kids who want to get into martial arts. Coffey BJJ's kid-jitsu program is structured for children as young as 4-5 with patient, knowledgeable & caring instructors overseeing the kids. Our 3 year old daughter continually talks about taking Jiu-jitsu when she turns 4.. any time she doesn't get to attend & watch her 5 year old sister she's very disappointed. The confidence & discipline learned from BJJ is what first attracted me to it, but seeing my little girl have to defend from being fully mounted in her 2nd class.. that's something that really impacted me. I hope she never has to use this in a bad situation as she gets older, BUT.. if she does.. I'll feel confident knowing that she's prepared & able to handle whatever comes her way. Back to a positive note - I can't express how impressed we are with Coffey BJJ & their instructors. Being a member is truly like being part of a family.

The Bridges Agency has been FANTASTIC to work with both for personal & business insurance. I went into The Bridges Agency in 2011 for a very specific insurance need that was low cost ($100 one time expense).. the service I was given blew me away! Since then, we've become very happy customers thanks to the competitive prices, great service & deep industry knowledge at The Bridges Agency.

Great food. Nice atmosphere although we normally call in and take out. Normally have good specials as well.
