Inside sneaky beans

Sneaky beans is located inside an old home so there are lots of different rooms to explore. I liked the red and blue chairs in this one. There's also a TV room in the back with a big sofa and a "work" room with tables and wi-fi for those who need to compute!

Ms Barista

There's a new coffee shop in town - Sneaky Beans! It's right in the heart of Fondren and will probably rival the Cups that is just a few blocks away. This barista kindly agreed to let me take her photo while at work. I'll show you more of Sneaky beans tomorrow.

St. Patty's Day

This is how I celebrated the Irish holiday, with a green-tinted American beer. No cookies for me - nossirree!

Kiss me... I'm not Irish!

Today is my two year anniversary of living in Jackson. My husband and I arrived on St. Patrick's Day in 2007, worn out from a long, labored flight from Germany with an extra-long stop in Charlotte, NC because we missed our connection.

I probably won't be celebrating with cookies tonight, if you know what I mean. But I hear everything at Campbell's Bakery is very good. Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone! Don't drink too much green beer!!

Beloved grandparents

These are the grave markers of my colleague's grandparents. They were not far from the place where his parents were buried as well.

Im back from the cruise, but a little worn out from my vacation and overworked from all the e-mails I have to catch up on! I'll be back to my daily tours soon though.

Whitesand Baptist Church

Whitesand Baptist Church is about an hour south of Jackson in the big town of Prentiss! A colleague of mine buried his father there and I went for the funeral. It was a beautiful day with blue skies and puffy white clouds. Just the kind of day you'd like to have for such a sad occasion.

Whitesand is the only church I've covered so far which does not have a website. I guess they don't need to advertise as much in the country.
