Once a very very long time ago Christine and i were in one of the early coffee stores in Raleigh, a place where you could buy flavored coffee. One was labeled as flavored with the exotic Southern Pecan.

Pecans are native plants to the south east -- perhaps more the Mississippi valley than the Atlantic coast, but they are far less exotic than say, English walnut. We giggle about that to this day.

Recently we were looking at houses in region around our families in North Carolina. "A rare brick ranch" began one description. We looked at each other and completed the sentence: "With an exotic Souther Pecan." I swear, there is nothing rare about brick ranches in the area. Many date back to the 50s through 70s, as this one did. Rare! Pfft!

Apparently, i'm not going to be able to look at a listing for a brick ranch without rolling my eyes thinking about that listing, for a while. (Can't find it any more - must have been fixed.)

My 7 am meeting was cancelled, and i found out before dashing around to make it. Yay!

Posting a full work day after writing. Oops!

I have had lower than average "moodscope" results Oct 28 through Friday. Not dramatically different from the usual, but it documents how i was "down." And this weekend, i'm back up. Not feeling healthy was a comment on several of the records, particularly on the 28th which was very low. I still think i have a sinus issue.

So, i can feel the change in emotional state, some threshold crossed. The correlation with feeling a cold coming on, particularly at the start, does make me suspect that i have been fighting off some low grade infection and that just having that much energy unavailable for my conscious life creates an emotional depression. If so, this sinus issue should be on its way to clear up.

I like the folks who move to the south and build with stucco or adobe.

As opposed to all the adobe/stucco in the Southwest?

I'm guessing you're looking in the Piedmont then because most of the houses on the Coastal Plain are clapboard.

Speaking of exotic coffee... there was a store at the mall in G'ville that had marshmallow flavored. That was an unfortunate experience.

My dad's farm in Bertie Co, had a stand of pecan. The thin smooth single color skinned ones. And a black walnut which we were repeatedly warned not to touch because we'd never get our hands clean.
