Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

George Masa research blog created

Back in 1999 I began a research and production effort that led to the making of The Mystery of George Masa documentary film. With it's release in 2002 to the PBS system the 86 minute film aired in about 40% of the United States. This year, a one-hour version will be released to the PBS system to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Masa's inclusion in Ken Burns' new film The National Parks: America's Best Idea.

I would like to invite everyone to come check out my Free short story Propositioned. You will love Kristina and Robert's story.



Blurb:

Kristina Ward is looking for a fresh start. She has just gotten out of a relationship with a married man who also had children. She would have never guess a woman as intelligent as her would miss the warning signs of his deception. But she had. There was nothing like a heartbreak to make a woman reevaluate her life. Too bad… Continue

How did we get all this land?

Hi: I'll be at Malaprops Bookstore on Friday May 22 to give a slide show on North Carolina's Hiking Heritage.

How did we get all this recreation land to hike in? Some was sold, some was given away, some was protected....



As I wrote as a comment to the last post, enjoying our parks and forests is one of the cheapest entertainment there is. Why go to an amusement park when the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Pisgah Forests are the…

Economic Downturn Causes A Resurgence In Old Time Ways



Over the past few days the Blind Pig group has been discussing how reusing, repurposing, and recycling can be good for the environment-and good for the pocket book. The downturn in the economy has caused a need for thriftiness in most households-which has resulted in a resurgence of lifestyles that hearken from an earlier time.



The "backyard chicken" phenomenon is on the rise across the… Continue

Blue Ridge Book & Author Show Case in Flat Rock

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this book fest. I was completely surprised that this was their first gathering. Well done!



I only hope I will be a part of it next year, as an author, in some capacity.



Gary Carden is a jewel. Can I now say that I have a big ole crush on Mr. Carden (teehee). He always looks as if he's just about to give you a big old wink, but doesn't - which is why I like that better - the promise of a big old wink without the actual doing of… Continue

Rain Barrels



Over the past few years rain barrels have become popular with both home gardeners and folks who are interested in water conservation. The south-including my area has experienced severe drought over the past few years too.

Too much to do and not enough time to write

I seem to have trouble getting to this site as often as I'd like. I manage along with Kay Byer, the Netwest Writers site and two personal blogs, the latest being The Way I See It,

and I find myself up at three in the AM on the computer.

Blogs can be addictive. I don't just mean the writing but the reading of so many others.

I don't know how people do it all and have any other life.



Now I've tried Facebook, I'm told we need… Continue
