One of my biggest gripes with our present culture is the thought that blaring music needs to be in ALL public places. Most restaurants are so noisy you have to shout to have a conversation. Grocery stores have rock music going so loud I can't even think about what to buy. There's one exception in our town and that's Bi-Lo. They play music from the 50-60's, and I find myself singing along (much to Darcie's embarrassment). I have even been know to throw in a dance step or two.

A Recent Getaway
Gayle and I recently went to Raleigh where his company was honoring several of their salesmen for selling the most nation wide. He was one of them but would never tell you that! The place where we stayed was called The Umstead. It was very relaxing and oriental. I'm not crazy about oriental gardening or decorating. I do like the big pots in the ground, but that's about it. One thing I did really like was how quiet the place was. Calm music drifted through the restaurants and everywhere else was just really quiet.
