The Seventh Tar Heel Tavern

Welcome to the Seventh Tar Heel Tavern. We have eight submissions this week for your enjoyment. The participants offer their skills for your reading pleasure. Please let them know what you think of their efforts by leaving your comments for the Tavern itself or for individual participants.

Jennifer, of Inside My Head has written a beautiful, uplifting and truthful look at life in a family prone to alcohol addiction. She reveals that it is possible to break the cycle in "The Circle". She describes her blog as "A collection of thoughts from the inside of this 41 year-old woman's head. According to me, the one who actually lives there." Further, she expresses her appreciation for the opportunity to participate in the Tar Heel Tavern. I think that we, the readers, are the ones who should thank Jennifer.

We have some fantastic photos from the 2005 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, thanks to Scott of Suspended Reality. The first shot shows "Charles Howell Blasting Out of a Sandtrap". The second photo makes it clear why the Southeastern US is the perfect spot for Springtime. Check out the dogwoods under the pines at "Augusta National, April 2005". Scott’s last entry is a photo of "Tiger Woods at the Masters, 2005". Thank you very much, Scott, for sharing your skills as a photographer with us. Scott describes his blogsite as "Eclectic commentary and original photography."

Ogre, of Ogre's Politics and Views, submitted "North Carolina News". In his words, "North Carolina news and views -- some serious discussions of issues that affect people, some satire, and some just complete silliness for everyone." I will remember Ogre's entry next time I am climbing one of those microwave towers that have popped up all over the once beautiful landscapes of North Carolina.

This week, Lenslinger of Viewfinder BLUES sent us "Hurricane Stew--the Video". He says, "As a veteran TV News photographer, I don't have time to think about everything I put ON THE AIR. But some of the flickering images that pass through my lens refuse to fade away, until I wrestle them into words and deposit them here. Beats therapy." This is great video covering Hurricane Gordon on the Outer Banks. Imagine having your embarrassing moments at work captured on camera for posterity! I am glad there weren't cameras when I worked in clinical data management! At least, Lenslinger, you can’t claim to have a boring job, eh?

William Teach of Pirate’s Cove takes us back out to the northern Outer Banks with "Wild Horses of Corolla", a history of the origin of the wild horses along our fragile and hostile shores.

Terri-Lynn of Nearest Distant Shore reacts much in the same way that I do to beautiful spring weather and fundraisers on Public Radio. Her entry is entitled "Spring Fever". Dinner sounds great, Terri-Lynn. What can we bring and when should we plan to arrive?

Bora of Science and Politics posted "Do YOU know a Serial Killer?" this week. He links to a story by Chris Clarke who "knew" a man under an assumed name who had been put to death by the State of Texas. In this post, we are challenged by the question "What does it mean to 'know' a person in the age of the World Wide Web?"

Finally, here at 2sides2ron is a hair-raising true tale called "How My Hair Almost Killed Me". It is hard to imagine a time when the length of one’s hair was viewed as a political threat, but I lived through it. Viet Nam was raging in "conflict", Nixon was President and I found a doctor whose Hippocratic Oath came with conditions. Some of the names have been changed to protect the guilty.

While you are here visiting, have a look around. I have just added a few photos of this beautiful spring for you to see. I hope that you enjoy each moment of your lives. All it takes is noticing the little things when you can.
