The History of Crab Orchard Stone in Crossville, Tennessee - 01/31/08 07:49 AM
Crab Orchard stone is a rare sandstone quarried from the Crab Orchard Mountain of the Cumberland Plateau. Predominately rose in color, this mottled stone is streaked in irregular patterns by different shades of brown. Its unique and beautiful color was used mostly for chimneys and foundations in the immediate region until the late nineteenth century, when Cumberland County officials built a courthouse with the stone and erected stone curbing and sidewalks in Crossville. In Cumberland County, you can see this stone in use in the hundreds of "Homestead Houses" that were built during the depression as part of the New Deal. (8 comments)

Child - Proofing your New Home - 01/14/08 05:36 PM
Purchasing a new home is exciting. Remembering everything you need and want to do is sometimes challenging. As a Mother I remember the days of having to child proof my home. I remember moving from my old home into my new home and child proofing all over again was stressful. The stress of familiarizing myself with the new home and yet looking for the things that could be potential hazards. When was the last time you crawled around your home on your hands and knees? Probably not since you were a young child. As strange as it sounds, it may (29 comments)
I love Tennessee. Tennessee is a state where it's residents are not afraid to believe in what they believe in and show it. Although, some people still consider us the backwards state, resting high on the mountains in hillbilly country farms I say I am proud to be part of that culture ! The culture where "paddling" your child on the rear end still exist's because they deserved it. Where people still believe a hand-shake is your word. Where crops are formed, grown and many believe in being and growing green ! Although not born and raised here Tennessee was my home away from (10 comments)

Winterizing the outside of your home ! - 01/07/08 09:26 AM
Mother Nature is surely trying to fool us with it's vicious weather pattern. If you remember correctly last week we woke up with days in the single digits and high's in the 20's.
