I recently found myself doing what any self-respecting parent would do: watching a “Care Bears” cartoon with my three kids. At the end of the cartoon, my oldest (who is 7) asked what the icons on the

Raleigh has a lot going for it -- no one can dispute that. But a quick Google search reveals that it could stand to raise its rock music cache game. 
If cities were up for yearbook-like superlatives, Raleigh would probably get saddled with not only “Most Likely To Succeed,” but “Friendliest” and maybe even “Best Smile.” Heck, it could probably even take home an honor specifically for Raleigh: “Most Superlatives.” It’s almost getting embarrassing. Anyone who knows me and has read any of my ramblings…

Serious question for non-Southerners who live in Raleigh (or anywhere in the South, for that matter): Do you worry that your kids will develop a Southern accent?

"I think if you mention the term 'State Fan' to folks locally they'll picture a raving lunatic that's constantly whining about referees and is digging up more dirt on UNC to share on message boards. I hope I don't represent that guy, because I don't think the large majority of State fans act that way. The nuts are the most visible ones because they're just crazy enough or pissed off enough to share their rage in a public venue.

A good friend asked me the other day for my recommendations for brunch places in Raleigh. (Hi, Brenda!) I didn't offer much. It has been seven years since we first asked "where is the best place in Raleigh to get your brunch ...

 For the past 20 years or so, I have lived in a place (Raleigh, pop. 423,000) not historically known for its walkability ("Sprawleigh") yet thriving with walkability momentum. The ability to meander by foot to restaurants, shops and sights is vital to my quality of life.
As a kid, I didn't have too much concern for what was within walking distance of my home. I grew up in a smaller city (Dunn, N.C., pop. 10,000), built out from a central business district framed by older neighborhoods. We liv...

We can't say enough good things about how much our dogs love Cindy, Taylor and everyone else at Raleigh Pet Sitters. They are always on time to come take our dogs out and play with them, and the detailed information we get when we return is helpful and informative. We would recommend them to everyone!
