It seems like there is a lot of noise in the world today. We are in the beginning of a new decade. We have never had a 2020 before. It has a nice ring to it; maybe that’s because Barbara Walters burned it into the minds of millions of Americans, including myself, on the ABC News Magazine sho…

A Christmas tree atop an automobile stimulates thoughts of happiness. I imagine these trees in their new homes bringing the Christmas season to life with their fresh cut smell. And then it’s time for everyone to come together to decorate. Everyone has their style.

We have been busy elves working on our new Christmas Special. The 2019 theme is A Carolinas Heritage Christmas. We have been filming on location in historic Gold Hill, North Carolina.

I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but time sure seems to speed up as the years pass. It may be like one of those double-blind drug research programs where one group is given the real drug and another group is given a placebo pill that looks the same as the real thing. Neither the test…

Summertime busy is a different kind of busy. We are often rushing off to somewhere to relax. Maybe a trip to the beach to enjoy the surf and sun or a high-country visit with cooler days.

West Jefferson, North Carolina, is situated for a lot of enjoyment. It’s a nice drive up the mountain and it’s cooler than the lower elevations. The people are friendly and if you enjoy quaint walkable sidewalks with a good amount of public art, you are likely to enjoy your visit.

It was a perfect time to visit the mountains. It always seems to be 10-15 degrees cooler than the foothills and even more so compared to the Sandhills and Lowcountry. Clear skies with a few clouds for a bit of contrast were above, and a winding county road was my path up the mountain to visi…
