The 2016 WAKE UP AND READ book drive for Wake County has started.  The drive however is far short of its goal of collecting 110,000 books that it needs to give to diasadvantage students.  If you want to help there are many ways and you can start by going to this link WAKE UP AND READ The web site for WAKE UP AND READ has the information for donating books as well as how to donate your time which is always in short supply with these type of drives.  Volunters are needed now and through June 9, 2016 to help students select books that are appropriate for them.I know my grandchildren love to check out books from the library but these books are different.  How are they different?  They are different because a child gets to choose a book and take it home with him.  Sometimes this is the first...

Most new homeowners buy with potential re-sale in mind.  In fact, it is crazy not to purchase with at least the thought of resale in mind.  With that said, many new home owners want to know what they can do today, that will make their home more marketable tomorrow (or in 5 years).  So here we will discuss how the small project of changing the look of your entrance will make your home more valuable. Have you noticed the home in your neighborhood that always has a front entrance that pops? This home is typically the one that has a line of buyers waiting for it to open, on the day that it goes on the market.  When you are new in a neighborhood, it is best to start positioning yourself for this on day one.  The longer you are the owner that has "that beautiful house", the better.  Your goal...

When we travel and stay at a hotel or a friend's home, we need to be mindful of the energy that is constantly in flux. This meaning, we are giving energy and receiving it, knowing and unknowingly.This could also be referred to as "predecessor energy," meaning energy left behind from those who previously occupied that space physically and spiritually. When you travel, its suggested to either wear a protective emblem of your choosing and/or bring along a small traveling altar that could be placed inside the room of where you stay. I did this when traveling throughout North Carolina, as I stayed for a week providing Feng Shui workshops. That is a lot of time to absorb various energies. My small traveling altar simply helped to clear the room of it's energy, allowing me to claim short term ...

 Umstead State Park is a great place to bring your family and explore solo. Its constantly bustling with activity and with 5,579 acres of woodlands, various biking and hiking trails and 3 man-made fishing lakes, you'll have plenty to do.  You could even trek into Umstead and camp out.I enjoyed a 5 mile hike along the Company Trail. I really took my time enjoying the sights above, listening to an abundance of singing birds and observing the hints of Spring being just around the corner. Just imagine what this park looks like in full bloom!   Address: 8801 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27617 Phone:(919) 571-4170 Website

 Pullen Park opend on March 22nd, in 1887. Its like the Central Park of New York City, only much smaller in size. This quaint little park is a wonderful place to stop of and explore. Parking is free yet it may be tight finding a spot during the weekend rush. You could rent spaces to cook out and even take a spin the mini train around the park, take a paddle boat out for a ride (when that option is in season) or just troll/jug throughout the park. You will also come across some beautiful sculptures. This is a tribute to the 1960 TV Land characters, Andy Griffith and Opie.  Mini train passing over a bridge. It only cost $1.00 to ride!

Do you travel through downtown Raleigh and wish there was a way to know about parking, street closures, fun things to do? Are planning a trip?  If so there is an app for that called the Downtown Raleigh  app from the Downtown Raleigh Alliance.     The Downtown Raleigh app is meant to help guide visitors around downtown Raleigh.  Pepsi, ABC 11 as well as the city all sponsored the project.  The city in 2014 kicked in $5,000 to get the party started.  The Downtown Raleigh app is constantly updated, a source for all things Downtown Raleigh in which you can view business listings.  But not just any business listings.  The app concentrates on shopping, nightlife, dining and other attractions.  You can get directions from you current location by walking, driving or even the R-LINE (transit). ...
