Thought I would take the opportunity to let you all know a little bit about the part of the world I live in. I love to travel but I really love North Carolina. It is located along the I95 corridor & is about at the half way point between Florida & Maine giving it a climate that attracts lots of people since our seasons are less extreme than other parts of the country.
Being on the eastern coastline would seem that we are in a hurricane zone but that is not really true. We have had some bad ones like Hazel in 1954 but didn't have another until "40" years later. We have had a few since then but spread out with years when none were recorded.
My state has the distinction of being first in a number of things. Go here to check out a list of notable firsts.
In a previous blog I was mentioning foods that I enjoy. There are a number of famous foods & drinks that originated in North Carolina. Go here to check them out.
There were lots of notable people that came from my state as well. Check out this list of famous people.
As with any state North Carolina has dumb laws that are still on the books and may give you a chuckle. Check these out.
Finally in case you did not know the little town of Halifax where I live had a significant part in our independence. I honestly did not realize this fully until I relocated here from only 40 miles south of here back in 2004. Check this out.
Hope you found this interesting.
