  • Cromwell radio Group

    This is a group of radio stations which operates in KY. I was very excited to visit and see what goes on behind the scenes at a radio station. I met some very interesting people, including one who is a soap box racing champion. It was enlightening to see how segments are taped, and hear Rhonda’s taped segment of weather. I was disappointed by the...

    The owner Phoebe caused a controversy of sorts when she painted the house pink. The color grows on you after awhile, and it kind of resembles a doll house my sister had that I broke.

    This place has been here since 1954. There is no where to sit inside, but there are picnic tables placed outside. I currently live in England and constantly crave a Big Dipper Burger.

  • Southern Barbecue at it's best!

    Although the place itself is quite ordinary, none of the southern barbecue it serves could be called that.
