Hi Gregory. I just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoy reading your blog. You mention the town of Salem, NC. I think the next time I head south, I'll have to stop there. We have a Salem in New Jersey, it too is rich in history.

Hi Carole. thank you so much for the kind comment. I'm sorry it's taken me forever to respond, but I just noticed that I had "unmoderated" comments pending for this blog.

Thanks again,

~Greg
