First Hollywood movie filmed on Whitley Estate on October 26, 1911

Of all the products of popular culture, none is more sharply etched in our imagination than the movies. Most Americans instantly recognize images produced by the movies: Harrison Ford, as Indiana Jones, as an adventurous archeologist in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. Sean Connery, the gun-toting James Bond in “Goldfinger”, and Carrie Fisher, the beautiful princess who is fighting the evil emperor in “Star Wars”. Even those who have never seen “ET”, “Casablanca” or “Gone With the Wind” respond instantly to the advertisements, parodies, and TV skits that use these films’ dialogue, images, and characters. So when was the first Hollywood movie filmed?

Goal Setting – Something I learned from HJ Whitley
Posted: Monday, May 10th, 2010 by Gaelyn Whitley Keith
I had always thought of goal setting as a discipline that made you work for what you wanted. Until I attended a business seminar on goal setting a few years ago, I never set goals. It was too much TROUBLE! Besides that, it made me feel guilty and pressured.
