I started the Coach4aday blog in 2014 and have done daily posts on one topic for each year. In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and in 2017 it was “Colleges and Universities”.
The one consistent piece of feedback I have received with this blog is the 2015 series on “A Friend of a Friend”. Readers and blog followers said please bring it back. The stats also back that up with the number of views each of those posts received.
So in 2018 two things will happen with the Coach4aday blog; One I plan to collaborate with a friend named John Rancke and revisit some of those 2015 “A Friend of a Friend” posts and do some new ones with a slightly different twist. I write the posts on odd-numbered days each month and John handles the even-numbered days.
In addition John and I will write about things we both are interested which will include basketball, food, people, music, our granddaughters, and great stories.

North Carolina License Plates
Last night I attended a function on the campus of UNC Pembroke in the Jones Center and the parking lot in front of the building was full. A lot of the cars parked in the lot had vanity license plates.
In North Carolina it is possible to get a special or vanity license plate. There are a lot of cars in North Carolina with these customized plates. In North Carolina a car only has a plate on the rear of the vehicle. Our standard private vehicle license plate in North Carolina looks like the one you see below:
The North Carolina annual plate fee is $36.00 but for an additional $30.00 a year you can personalize you plate. Lot’s of great examples.
In addition to vanity plates you might be surprised to know that North Carolina let’s you select from 188 special license plates. Included in that list is one for UNC Pembroke featuring their unique Braves Logo.
If you want to look at the entire selection of special plates available check out the link below.
If you take time to look at all the plates you will find 38 colleges including a number of out of state universities. Much to the dismay of some of my friends who are staunch Ohio State fans there plate is not available for Buckeye fans but there is for Michigan.
There are 43 special plate offerings related to the military. Even NASCAR has 22 choices. If you have a special interest for a special license plate you have 73 choices ranging from Alpha Kappa Alpha to Watermelon. There is even a plate for Piedmont Airlines.
At one time Piedmont had a prominent role in North Carolina but today there corporate headquarters is located in Salisbury, MD.
If you are driving in North Carolina pay attention to all the different plates you will probably see. If you see a unique or funny vanity plate leave us a picture or description.
