Well, It may not be going Viral, but I would like to see the Hits on Youtube…


I know 27 isn’t a huge number of hits in one day for a Youtube video, but I would like the hits to show up on it!    Youtube stats really are a mystery!  I know they verify hits to make sure there are no artificial ones added but I did not add those hits!

Great Class!

We danced some old favorites last night and I especially enjoyed Country Walking!  It has been a long time since we danced that one and it is way up high on my list of favorites! 

Come on out to Memorial Baptist in Pulaski 5:30 Tuesday nights!  You will love it!

Before I married Clyde I didn’t know a cormorant from an osprey!  He has taught me a lot and I am proud of this latest shore painting!

I found another great ghost story on  Local Asheville Ghost Stories website!


Battle Mansion is located near The Grove Park Inn.  Supposedly, it is haunted by a servant girl named Alice.

They say she either fell or was pushed down the stairs.  The mansion is also haunted by the former owner, Samuel Battle.  He has been seen wearing a top hat and formal attire.

When the mansion was the location of 13WLOSTV Alice was often seen by employees.  She wears a long, old fashioned dress.  Sarah Harrison, the writer of this report talked with two employees of Grove Park Inn and one of them swore that some wires hanging from the ceiling were swaying back and forth on their own.   The other worker said he was grabbed when he walked down the stairs. The man that grabbed him fit the description of Samuel Battle.  He was presented a picture of the doctor and is sure of his claim.  SPOOKY!

The mansion was demolished in 2006.

Kessler Ant Diner –  Open 24/7!

Every year when the weather gets warm we have hoard of ants in our kitchen.  We have tried everything to get rid of them without success.  Ant traps don’t work and we have tried a number of safe remedies that work at first and then the ants are back in full force.  One summer talcom powder did the trick for a while and then they were back.

This summer we have a remedy that consists of putting a few drops of a glucose solution with poison on small squares of paper.  The ants eat the solution and take the poison back to the nest.  This one was working great for a while!

Now they are all just sitting in a circle around the drops having a great time!
