So You Got A Little Snow…

So You Got A Little Snow…

It’s been four or five years since we’ve seen winter precipitation in ENC. I’m sure you took plenty of pictures of your own, so I’ll spare you seeing even more. Instead, I’ll step back in time to a small village (yes, it was so small it was officially considered a village) called Neudorf which is…read more »

Downtown New Bern Artwalk

Downtown New Bern Artwalk

Last Friday evening I spent some time after work at the Downtown New Bern Artwork. The second Friday each month through November has downtown businesses and restaurants staying open for receptions, demonstrations, special events, and more. And, of course, there is the work of plenty from local artists on display and for purchase as well!…read more »

Never Fails

Never Fails

I mentioned once when I was on the air that my headphones were being held together with duct tape. Well, if something I own breaks, I fix it, even if for the time being. Thus, the duct tape. Know what? I haven’t had to re-tape them since, either. If the women don’t find you handsome,…read more »

Unintended Kitchen Mayhem

Unintended Kitchen Mayhem

Last night I used this paper plate to warm up leftovers in the microwave.

If You Drive, Please Read This

It’s fun to drive the neighborhoods to view the outdoor Christmas decorations this time of year, no doubt. Please remember, however, to do so safely. If you’re the one behind the wheel of said vehicle, you are still responsible for where it actually ends up. Keep your eyes on the road and stay between the…read more »

When There’s A Will…

When There’s A Will…

I’m lucky to have one of these in my hand. It’s a Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cake which you always see and enjoy this time of year. Everyone except me, that is. As soon as the box of individual cakes makes its way out of the grocery bag in my kitchen, it’s submerged by two…read more »

Xmas Parades Galore!

Xmas Parades Galore!

Here’s hoping you enjoyed a parade-filled weekend across Eastern North Carolina! The schedule was packed and the weather was perfect for early December! My family enjoyed the annual festivities in Trent Woods and one of my family members participated, as well! The usual fun and frivolity was thoroughly enjoyed! Everything from dancers, bands, and costumed…read more »

GAME ON!

GAME ON!

Well, Santa’s elf on the shelf, Twinkle, has arrived and its first night at our house was an adventurous one, apparently. Seems she helped herself to the kids’ Halloween haul and didn’t hide it, either! Likely not the first not-so-nice act that will be committed before Christmas but we’re watching how the kids react to…read more »
