It's always a plesure when people take the time to deliver and suggest fun activites throughout their community. I know I always try my best to give pointers and send people in the right direction. Keep up the good work.

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

Best regards.

I love this type of post, Leesa.  Awfully difficult to do when you cover a large swath of L.A.  Very nicely laid out.

Tom - It really never stops!  I can't think of one "down" time in Wake Forest!

Michael - thanks - your comment is greatly appreciated!

Jane - I can certainly understand how difficult that would be.  While I service all of Wake, Johnston, Franklin, Granville and Orange County I focus on Wake Forest for my localism posts.
