Bleckley Man Finds Happiness in Hobbies

Bleckley Man Finds Happiness in Hobbies

John Crowe, 42, stands in his workshop area in his family home in Cochran, and points out different pieces of equipment. “I use that for my wood working.” “That is for the cars.” “That is for the metalwork.” “That is for the photography.”

Crowe, who is the operations manager at Dublin GM/Nissan in Dublin, Georgia, said, “I am one of those types of people who just likes to learn.”

His bookshelves are full of 'how-to' books. “I don't read any book that is not going to teach me something, except the Bible, and well, that teaches us things too.”

Crowe is very easy-going, flexible and relaxed.

What Do Dubliners Say?

What Do Dubliners Say?

DUBLIN, GA. - First it was flash mobs, then it was planking.  Now, "'things' (fill in the blank) say" is the Internet meme of the moment.

Of course, if you browse YouTube, people don't say "things" -- they say another word that's not fit to print here.

Take a look on YouTube and you'll find dozens of videos of funny things people who fit a particular demographic say.  What you won't see: "'Things' Dubliners say."

So we want to know.  What are some things that only Dubliners say?
