In keeping with the brand new look for the blog, I have a brand new feature column.
In this new column I’m going to do stories about what is local to me. Local may mean right in my neighborhood or it may mean local to my 100 mile radius. It just depends on what I find. But I want to have some focus here on what’s happening and available around me, and thus what will be of particular interest to my local followers.
Today is a trip to Greensboro, N.C. which is an hour’s drive from my house.
I’ve been there several times since moving down here: my wonderfully fun friend, Mary James Lawrence (you can read about her here), lives there; we went to visit and tour the Civil Rights Center and Museum, site of the “Greensboro Four” lunch counter sit-in in 1960; we have had an excellent dinner at Undercurrent Restaurant, and then there is Architectural Salvage. Many cities and towns have such a place but they can be difficult to find and you really have to dig deep. Around here, Architectural Salvage is well known especially for their huge selection of doors and windows.
