Pictured above is one of our favorite places to stop at the Famer's Market held in Poplar Grove each Wednesday. Mary Wootten (the owner and chief cake designer) has one of the most original ideas, combining popcorn, peanuts and chocolate candies to make delicious "cakes". Also in the market are pickles, vegetables, plants, peanuts, grapes, orchids, wines, candles, handcrafted jewelry, breads and cookies and the most fabulous fresh cut flowers. Visit Mary's new website at www.poppincakes.com and tell 'em we sent you! If you would like to know about some of the other events being held in our area over the next month, take a look at our newsletter, "Living on Topsail Time."

Every Wednesday, starting in the Spring and continuing through December, Poplar Grove Plantation is the site of the Farmer's Market. One of the vendors is Colleen Bannerman representing Bannerman Vineyard, the only vineyard located in Pender County. Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of speaking with Colleen AND buying some of her vineyard's muscadine grapes. Awesome! Bannerman Vineyard supplied the grapes used to make many of the Duplin County wines for years and now she and Scot make a number of muscadine based wines. We spoke with our team members when we returned to the office and all have agreed that making a trip to Bannerman Vineyard would be a great way to spend the afternoon. On September 27, the North Carolina Muscadine Festival will be held in the Duplin County Events Center ...

If you live in Hampstead NC you probably work in Wilmington; at 8am on weekdays you are met with an exodus of vehicles headed South on 17 towards Wilmington and back again at the end of the day. As Hampstead NC continues to grow more businesses are willing to establish a foot-hold recognizing that the established work force will help them grow their business; The article below in the Star-News on "Atlantic Barn & Timber" is such an example - the next 10 years will bring a renewed focus on business opportunities and jobs to the area near the "The Holly Shelter Swamp."

The new Topsail High School is scheduled to be complete in December 2008.  This massive facility is within walking distance of the current Topsail High and Middle school.  From my understanding, the current High school will become the new middle school ( after some much needed repairs and renovations are made). The current middle school will become a new elementary school.  The new 224,727 square ft. school will be two stories, have two gymnasiums, a seperate building for shop classes and an entire wing for theatre and auditorium use.  All these changes will be great for the students, hopefully we can get the kids at North and South Topsail elementary schools out of bungalo's and into real classrooms.  Most likely we will still have to deal with the overcrowding through the entire 2008/...

I guess this link is cool especially when you are bored: Click here to create your own painting.

 Sometimes you read an article that just resonates with you.  I was cruising Active Rain and found an article that really pushed my buttons.  It was a wonderful surprise to see that it was contributed by a fellow who is new to Active Rain.  In his article STOP THE HOME TAX, Bill Guy has clearly communicated the need to unite against this absurd transfer tax.  He's also given lots of links to county websites that will educate voters about the perils of this transfer tax.  It was not only a well-written article, it's was Bill's first blog! Please stop by for a read and especially to welcome and encourage this great new member to Active Rain.   Please join me in welcoming a great guy...Bill Guy of Hampstead, North Carolina ...to Active Rain! ________________________________________________...
