This weekend is the Asheville Herb Festival at the WNC Farmers Market, and I stopped in to see what was going on. I had a lot of fun looking at all of the plants and herbs and it was a beautiful day for it. The Herb Festival is being held April 30 through May 2, and you'll want to wear good walki...
  For anyone wanting to learn more about gardening in a region they have just moved to I ran across a wonderful website. Mother Earth News has a site that allows you to pick the region, and then get a month by month list of what to plant when. It even breaks it down to when to plant an item in s...
I previewed a fairly new listing in Essex subdivision the other day and wanted to share it. The address is 3002 Essex. This is a great community. There are just a few homes in it and the homes are all very well built. They all have beautiful, mature landscaping. This home is a very well maintaine...

I am not big on fast foods or burgers when eating out, but a good burger is hard to find and this is the...

Buying a home is huge and making the right decision is imperative. You definitely have to start with a budget. Getting a pre-approval from a bank is absolutel...
Today is Earth Day, a day when planting trees has been part of the ritual since it was established in the 1970's. But where did all of this tree planting begin? As far back as the 1840's people were planting trees en mass. It was more like Arbor Day when I think about it. But when the first settl...
The Epic Theater in Hendersonville is really Epic!  With Stadium seating everyone gets to see the large screen, no exceptions. The seats are comfy and the sound state of the art. I love the look of it too. It is a beautiful building. See the schedule for the Epic Theater. You can find the Epic T...
Are you done with Tax Time? I buried my head in the sand for another year and waited way too long to go in. I had all my paperwork completed at least a month ago, and was ready, but just couldn't do it. So Friday I finally got it together and made the call, fearing I would have to get an extensio...
