First up: Branon and Katy Mack. Branon’s a hoss for building a 2-car garage next to his house. In case that wasn’t enough, he had the forethought to put a Man Room above it. Rumor has it that there will be a pool table and some beverages from locales such as Lynchburg. I haven’t helped yet, but I keep promising Branon that I will. Then I’ll be able to justify hanging out over there when it’s all done. And Katy is quite the wine connoisseur; she and Steph share tips and reviews. Katy also is quite knowledgeable about the area, and has given us plenty of tips for food and nightlife.

Random Fact #1 from Adam: Massachusetts is the leading state in cranberry production, followed by Wisconsin, New Jersey, Washington, and Oregon.
Random Fact #2 from Adam: The official vegetable of North Carolina is the sweet potato. NC produces 40% of the nation’s crop.
Steph's comment to Random Fact #2: Do you know how many sweet potatoes we bought the last trip we made to the Farmer's Market. Not 2 lbs., not 5 lbs, but a grand total of 25 lbs. of this vegetable of NC. Umm yeah...we had a hard time passing up a large box of sweet potatoes for $8. Adam is convinced that it was closer to 30 lbs. since the box was overflowing. Let's just say, I'm finding all kinds of great ways to put them taters to use!
