Appalachian Trail Memories: Old and New
Many years ago, maybe thirty, I spent several spring breaks hiking on the Appalachian Trail, mostly in Tennessee, but one year, we also hiked the beginning of the trail in Georgia.  I have many wonderful memories of hikes with different friends and meetups ...

Sentinel Mountain Hike

Campground, I checked out the trails leaving from it. After reading the descriptions, Sentinel Mountain Trail seemed to offer the most
vistas, so I started up the half-mile access trail. This led partly

A Visit to Peggy's Cove and Lighthouse, Nova Scotia
For our second full day in Halifax, we wandered the area south of the city.  The girls didn't like to get started early so we got to Peggy's Cove about 10:AM.  We found it almost impossible to find a parking spot and the place covered with tourists. All of ...

Exploring Baxter State Park by Car
I was late getting to Baxter State Park because (fortunately) discovered I'd grabbed up my winter clothes bag instead of my tent bag - they are the same except for color.  So I had to spend most of Sunday driving from Aroostook to Moosehead and then back to...

The Pembroke Farm and Horse Fair
I heard about the little fair at Pembroke, a tiny village, only about a half hour hour away and decided it might be fun to go there. I imagined buildings full of competing vegetables, pies, and crafts,  and other buildings filled with livestock. I found a l...

I get my hair cut by April Holland. I have fine, thin hair that shows every mistake and is about the hardest to make look good. April has both cut it to look good AND to last between cuts. The only other really excellent hair dresser I've found in fifty plus years of searching, has won International Styling Competitions and works in Houston, Texas. I got a reference from a lady I met when I first got to North Carolina who had really beautiful hair in a stunning haircut. April is also very reasonable. So if you want a beautiful cut that lasts and doesn't break the bank, rush to make an appointment.

This is a very down to earth retail fish place with awesome meals. Even if you are gluten free, you can find some really good food. Of course their seafood mostly spent yesterday in the ocean, and their other foods also taste really fresh. The food is prepared with passion. And their prices won't break your bank.

I was amazed at this company's professionalism starting with my first conversation with them on the phone. They gave me a rough estimate before examining my car, which needed its 100,000 mile checkup. Then they called back without me having to check on it with the estimate. The car was finished in a timely fashion, by the time they promised and the bill was LESS than the estimate. It has factory parts and a 12 month warranty. And all the people I talked to there were superfriendly. I believe that this is a place I can continue to go to with confidence of getting only needed repairs at a great price.

These guys showed up fast and use their heads to work through problems getting my door opened. Got me back on the road in no time after I locked my keys in the car.

I went there with a large group of people - who were all ordering separately. We had excellent service, and everyone of the six of us at my table ordered something different. Everyone was highly delighted with their orders which ranged to meatloaf through Cajun food, to OBX seafood. Our service was also excellent and timely, even though there was a large crowd there at the time. I can't wait to go back. Oh yes, the prices were moderate.

I had a flat tire and tore up my tire. The man who helped me change it tightened the lug nuts too tight and striped two of them. Dino Lube sold me a new tire - and NOT at an outrageous price - and ordered in my new lug nuts. They finished the job two hours before they said they would have it done. They seem to both know how to fix vehicles AND have good customer service.

I've used them several times and they are courteous, friendly, and fast. The staff seems knowledgeable. They also have cold water for the customers which I've appreciated.
