      The Exploring Joara Foundation has as its mission  to provide continued support for the archaeological research in the upper Catawba and Yadkin River valleys in North Carolina. This IRS certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization will sponsor public involvement in Foothills archaeology through education programs, archeological surveys, and excavations of Native American and Early European settlements.

I live in western NC just at the foot of mountains like Grandfather and Mt. Mitchell (highest peak east of the Rockies). It's a wonderful place to live, and a place where I can be going along, thinking how very 2011 I am, when I'm yanked back to my roots by something like this. I remember that this was done by many in my childhood in areas that are now home to million dollar properties - with the same gorgeous God-given views they've always had. Take a trip back with me...                                   Years ago a  grandmother gave the new bride the following recipe:              (This is an exact copy as written and found in an old scrapbook - spelling errors and all!) WARSHING CLOTHES RECIPE Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water. Set tubs so smoke wont blow in eyes i...

In the market I serve in western NC, we have had a tough couple of years - high unemployment, low job prospects due to jobs moving overseas (principally in the furniture and textile industries, but in others as well),  a glut of listings on the market - either to move to another market for a job, or because of limited in-migration. Not a pretty picture. Not one to let the market get me down, and feeling the pressure of lots of wonderful listings and not enough wonderful buyers, I looked into the concept of a reverse offer. When sellers had had one or more successful showings of their home without an offer, I asked them how much they wanted the buyer to come back. The answer was almost always, "More than anything!" (If they weren't this enthusiastic, I knew a reverse offer was probably n...
