Fresh and yummy! I’ve lived in Charlotte since June of 2004. I heard about the Farmer’s Market when I first got here and made myself a promise that ‘one day’ I would go to the market and pick up some things. Well, time has a way of marching on and when I woke up this morning, Saturday, September 24th, I decided that today is the day that I go to the market! I looked outside and it was dreary and…

I was sitting in the Atlanta airport on Thursday morning waiting for my connection to Akron. I was dressed appropriately for Charlotte weather. I had on shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals. It was quite comfortable. When I sat down in the terminal in Atlanta, I noticed that it was very cold in the terminal. So, I sought out a place to get warm.

Barbecue grills get cleaned off at the beginning of the season, and are cleaned and, for the most…

Sometimes you have to stand before the mirror and have a nice long look. I just came back from reading Tom’s blog post entitled: Focus. Tom, like me, does not have a television and he’s found life without it much more enjoyable, as have I. When I started reading his post, he talked about how he removed the Facebook application from his phone. Immediately, I thought of that too … In the days before I had an iPhone, I had…

Farewell, my friend Though a few days behind, I was rather surprised, as I was getting caught up with my fellow bloggers, to find that Cedric, author of Plop, said that he was exiting the blogging game. I’m not really sure when I came upon Cedric’s blog, but I was sure glad that I did. There was something valuable there. Often times, I would read one of his post, attempt to absorb it, fail, have to come back, read again…
