North Carolina People, Places, and Things-January 1


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-January 1
I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.
