    The declining textile industry

    textile mill in Kannapolis, NC

    This should be a general tip, but it's neither a favourite thing nor a fondest memory. For many decades, the Piedmont region of North Carolina had many working textile factories. However, international trade deals (favoured by leaders of both major parties) have sent textile jobs abroad and left people from Southside Virginia through the Carolinas out of work. In 2003, the Pillowtex plant closed and 4400 people lost jobs.

    North Carolina residential architecture

    house in Concord, NC

    For someone who is colour blind, the featured photo would seem like a typical example of North Carolina architecture. The house has a front porch, which is as much a social statement as an architectural feature and high ceilings like so many traditional houses in the South. What made this house irresistable for the snapping was its light purple colour- perfect for Easter time, but rather gaudy at any other point in the year.

    What is there to do on a Saturday night here? Not much, so the local kids go cruising around the mall and around town!!! It's silly, I know, but if you drive around here on the weekend with your windows down at night, expect to see A LOT of other kids doing it, and possibly get some shouts!!! :-)

    Sun Drop

    Sun Drop is a soft drink that tastes a lot like Mello Yellow, but it's much better. Sun Drop is a big deal here.
