The name Chattahoochee is thought to come from a Muskogean word meaning “rocks-marked” (or “painted”), fromchato (“rock”) plus huchi (“marked”)

The vicinity of the Chattahoochee River was inhabited in prehistoric times by indigenous peoples since at least 1000 BC.  Among the historical nations, the Chattahoochee served as a dividing line between the Muscogee (Creek) (to the east) and the Cherokee territories (to the west) in the Southeast. The United States accomplished the removal of Native Americans, to extinguish their claims and make way for European-American settlement, through a series of treaties, land lotteries, and forced removals lasting from 1820 through 1832. The Muscogee were first removed from the southeastern side of the river, and then the Cherokee from the northwest.

A deep stretch to the left to get things started while the wild wind blows altering my balance.

Take some time to think of what you have been through and how far you have come to get where you are today! Enjoy the life

Why are we allergic to pollen?

When pollen spores dislodge from the plant and become airborne, they can enter your nose and throat. In people who are allergic, pollen triggers a reaction in specialized cells known as mast cells. A mast cell or mastocyte contains histamine, which is released into the bloodstream during an allergic reaction. This causes many of the symptoms associated with pollen allergies — such as runny eyes and nose, nasal congestion, sinus pressure, and itching and irritation.

Allergies are sensitivities to certain substances—including foods, dust, animal dander and pollen— that people come in contact with nearly every day. In normal people, such contact has no ill effects. The bodies of allergic people, however, are sensitive to these substances

Individuals tend to inherit the tendency to have allergies from one or both parents. Though specific allergies, such as a pollen allergy, cannot be inherited, the likelihood of having the same or similar reaction is increased.

Pregnancy, viral infections and puberty can also increase the probability of developing allergies because the body’s defenses and immune system are weakened at these times.
