Shots of the Lowcountry: Drayton Hall Plantation
I was just exploring through my albums in iPhoto, and I happened to come across an older album of my pictures of one of America’s most beautiful homes: the manor at Drayton Hall Plantation. Built between 1738 and 1742, Drayton Hall is North America’s best example of Palladian architecture. Even in a city as old as Charleston, Drayton Hall is unique in the fact that it is not restored,...

Politics Have Limits, But Are Not Limited
Yours Truly has a little rant that I’m sure you’ll find to be annoying as well: I hate bantering conversations. Nothing grates my nerves like hearing people shout at each other and use degradation to convey a point. Take the media for example: It all starts out as a normal conversation. One person has the floor and then the other person has the floor, a “you say something then I...

Shots of the Lowcountry: Paradise Island
I decided to spend yesterday afternoon going up into the “rural” part of Mt. Pleasant/Awendaw to take some pictures of the beautiful marshlands in the upper Wando River. I decided to share a few with y’all. I have no words to describe the feeling I get every time I go out to the marsh. It’s an overwhelming feeling of awe, gratefulness, and, most importantly,...

Fashion Spotlight: The Value of Thrift
Just in case you have not figured it out, Yours Truly is a big fan of clothing; I love clothes in almost (stress almost) an unhealthy way, and not just any clothes: nice clothes. If the clothing line has an animal as a logo, I will most likely be a fan. The Golden Fleece, Pony, Alligator, Whale, Black Lab-I think you see what I mean. I am a self-admitted clothes horse, and I am proud of it! I find...

Vote for Charleston in "The South's Tastiest Town"
I usually plan to use this page strictly for the manual, but I came across something that is shocking and must be shared. In a poll hosted by Southern Living for “The South’s Tastiest Town,” Charleston is ranked fourth. Fourth?! Something is wrong with this. Please, please, please be sure to vote for Charleston in this poll. With what is going on in our culinary scene, we should...
