Lessons from the critters

A pretty funny thing happened just the other day. I won't say where, because that doesn't really matter, but the upshot of it was that my Beloved encountered a snake. Apparently, she turned a corner and there it was.

McRae’s Superfine Flour

Camden has long been known for its wheat flour production during the pre-Revolutionary period and for several decades after the war. "Fine Carolina flour" was produced by Joseph Kershaw's mills on Pine Tree Creek according to the "South Carolina Gazette" and Kirkland and Kennedy in Volume 2 of "Historic Camden." Kershaw had three mill locations on Big and Little Pine Tree creeks. Perhaps the earliest were the grist and saw mills on Factory Pond, which we now know as Kendall Lake. On a plat for a deed from Samuel Wyly to Joseph Kershaw in 1762, the mill pond was ...

Disasters and such

As Irma bore down on the U.S. mainland, the hysteria got more and more pronounced. It's only Friday as I write this -- she's not supposed to even be anywhere near South Carolina until today -- and everyone was quickly losing their minds.

The real America

I believe it to be a reasonable assumption that lately in our country there has been a state of division, if you will. What we have seen many would describe as not a minor division, but rather a gross separation of our citizens. It would be nearly impossible to walk by a working television or computer screen without seeing groups from the left and the right fighting in the streets and flashing signs promoting hate and violence. If we only follow the sensationalism on social media or in the news, we will begin to buy into the concept America is ...
