This week I was busy weeding my peony and lilly garden and was finding a lot of those grubby Grub worms.
I hate to use pesticides for our three dogs play in our back yard all of the time. I also hate to use pesticides for it is harmful to the birds that frequent and enjoy our yard. I visited a gardening center and asked some questions about this grubby Grub worm. First the Grub worm is the larvae of the beetles or what we (16 comments)
Today I met friends at the Metrolina Expo Marketplace in Charlotte, NC for…
The ICA which is the International Collectibles and Antiques Spectacular.
It was a beautiful day and the show seemed to go on and on. There were so many vendors and many were in tents outside and many had rented space in huge warehouses.
We walked and walked and just enjoyed browsing and looking at the many different collectibles. I also enjoyed just watching the people. It was like watching children in a candy store. People (8 comments)
International Collectibles and Antiques Spectacular in Charlotte, NC
Coming this week-end and held at the Metrolina Expo!!
Twice a year this spectacular antique show comes to Charlotte, NC and is held at the Metrolina Expo. It is a 5 day show and many inform me that it takes that many days to go through it for there are many tents and buildings. Each filled to the rim with treasures. There is so much to see and enjoy.
Enjoy a 2 Day St Patrick’s Day Celebration at the Galway Hooker at Lake Norman
This celebration is to be enjoyed on Saturday and Sunday, the 16th and 17th of March 2013.
This event originally started out in a small tent and now they put up 5 massive tents and have over 3000 people come by to enjoy the festivities.
I have wondered many times on how they came up with the name for this restaurant/pub.
“Named for Galway Bay, on the west coast of (14 comments)
localism: Got to The ROOT of the Evil in Charlotte, NC - 03/12/13 04:12 PM
Got to The ROOT of the Evil in Charlotte, NC For the past several weeks I have been suffering with tooth pain around one of my caps. It had gotten worse over the week-end to the point that I looked like a big squirrel with a cheek full of acorns. Not a pretty sight.
I knew it was to the point that I really needed some help.
I contacted Charlotte Endodontics and was seen today by Dr. Evan N. Miller, D.D.S., P.A.
I had an absess and needed a root canal. I was sick when I heard (10 comments)
localism: The Red Slaw of North Carolina!! - 03/05/13 03:34 AM
The Red Slaw of North Carolina!!! I have friends coming to Charlotte, NC this week-end and all they can talk about is barbecue and “RED Slaw.” The decision has been made that we will be eating at Mac’s Speed Shop on South Boulevard, but they do not serve RED Slaw. I did a little research among friends who have lived in NC for years and was told that RED slaw is a vinegar based slaw and great when served as a side or on top of barbecued pork or chicken.

After a very busy morning I had the pleasure and opportunity to enjoy a great lunch with great friends at Bricktops Restaurant at SouthPark in Charlotte, NC. They have a covered and enclosed outside patio and the weather was perfect to enjoy lunch while sitting outside. My friends are also realtors, so we had a great time catching up with each other as well as masterminding over several topics of interest. The lunch menu at Bricktops offers a great selection and I had blackened salmon and the sautéed spinach on the (7 comments)
