FutureStarrToto georgy porgy
Toto always sings "georgy" and "porgy" at the same time, but most people don't get it. In the song, you can hear the difference between the two. It can be very confusing! So how did Toto know it was two words?
The diverse landscapes of Georgia result from geological and climatic forces working throughout time, with some recent direct influence from human activities. Georgia encompasses parts of five distinct physiographic provinces: the Appalachian Plateau, the Valley and Ridge, the Blue Ridge, the Piedmont, and the Coastal Plain. The form of the landscape and the climate of the area influenced the development of vegetation and animal life in each of these provinces. Although Georgia is the largest U.S. state east of the Mississippi River, it covers only about 300 miles from north to south, providing a small range in which biological diversity may occur. With elevations ranging from sea level to more than 4,700 feet and a diverse geological base with many different soil types, however, the ecology of Georgia is widely varied.
Part of the Appalachian Plateau, including Lookout Mountain, is located in the extreme northwestern corner of Georgia. The Ridge and Valley extends northeast to southwest through the state, connecting portions of Georgia and Tennessee with eastern Alabama. This province consists of numerous northeast-to-southwest-trending ridges with associated valleys. It has historically been the source of mining activity with some farming in the valley floors. The Blue Ridge is the southern extent of the major mountain range of the Appalachians that extends into Georgia. The highest points in the state, including Brasstown Bald (4,784 feet above sea level), are in the Blue Ridge. This area traditionally has been an area of mining—the first gold rush in the United States took place at Dahlonega in 1828—but today the Blue Ridge, with its mountain streams and cool summer breezes, serves primarily as a source of recreation. The Piedmont is home to most of Georgia’s population. This area of mountain foothills once served as the primary area for growing cotton. Most of Georgia’s cities are in the Piedmont, and the area is highly industrialized, with industries as diverse as carpet milling, aircraft and automobile manufacturing, and poultry processing. Agriculture is still a significant economic activity, but animal products such as poultry, eggs, and beef are dominant. (Source: www.georgiaencyclopedia.org)
