Have you visited the beach at the Bertie County’s Tall Glass of Water Project?  It started gaining steam back in 2019.  I’ve linked to the Bertie County page above.  It tells all about the project and I encourage you to go and read about it for yourself.  I got so interested in it, I took a quick trip out to take a look for myself. In my opinion, it looks like it could be a great start to a good thing.

However, I must mention a few things that you might need to be aware of.

Things that made me go…Hmmm

  1. The GPS is slightly off if you are using it to travel to the location.  And signage could be better.  I drove smooth past the entrance when I saw a little graveled road and the GPS said I had farther to go to get there. 
  2. The gravel road.  Big rocks. One and a quarter lane.  Which means you have to share the road going in and coming out. It wasn’t a difficult maneuver, but was still a little awkward.
  3. Parking.  There is a big grassy field where you park… much like some makeshift concert secondary parking; but it was doable. 
  4. The actual beach fronts.  Country is what country does. 😎  This actually reminded me more of a cove situation. In some places you had more space to put beach chairs and what not, but in all situations, the shore was narrow.  There were rusted engine blocks and tires—which made for good exploration and adventure, but Nags Head twin… it was not. 🙂☺

But, I can say that there were a good number of people out there having a great time, and more were coming in as I was leaving.  I think this will be a well-used beach/water access.  Congratulations to the project planners!  And I look forward to many more great things.  I took pictures!

The 2022 Official Primary Election Results – Bertie

Are you interested in learning about results for your primary local elections? You can see the results for your area by conducting a similar search as I did for Bertie County. There is a great deal of information available! And, don’t forget… Vote in the general election in November!!!

Remember, voting for those who are supportive of your concerns will help get resources, funding and assistance to you and your community. For too long, crooked politicians who are in the pockets of big business (in my opinion REPUBLICANS …and yes some Democrats), have been working against you and your interests. You want better roads and infrastructure? You have to vote for those who will work for you and not work against you in the service of corporations and other entities that are quick to say “government is bad“, but are the first in line to receive government contracts and other benefits. It’s time for a change. And you can influence those changes with your vote! I recommend voting for #Progressives in November 2022!

Why Can’t We Be Non-Affiliate? Why Do We Even Need Parties?

Comments are closed.

I’m in my mid fifties.  I’ve tried both, Republican and Democrat parties and found them both useless for my intentions and purposes.  I love the Progressive movement and find the Green party to be very similar in mission, but, I’m not too sure I want to join a party.  I’m just not a big fan.

Why can’t we just agree on issues and support candidates who represent our goals and viewpoints? And, when election day comes, that person is the one we ride with.  That would so be the envy of the system!  It would be plain, simple and straight to the point.

I know… I know… Yes. It would be hard to organize without a formal organization being formed; but, on the flip side, let the candidate be the organizer of his campaign and Read More

There are more than just Republicans and Democrats in America

On the real, I’m tired of hearing and watching shows that refer to “Americans” as either being Republican or Democrat.   Update your lexicon.  Stop being lazy and add a few more parties to your political list.  Splurge a little in your reporting and include others.  I don’t care how you do it–be creative.  Just make sure it gets done. Personally, I consider myself as a progressive Independent.  I have opinions on certain issues that don’t fit either party, but I vote for representatives who listen and are sensitive to my issues.  And frankly, there are a lot of folks in office right now, that I’m looking to vote out and see gone.  There are others like me.

There are many Americans who don’t identify with either the Republican or Democratic party and should be included in political conversation.  You might not recognize and identify them now, but you know they are there.  They are the ones that keep effing up your polls and leaving you in disbelief and wonderment.  They are the ones who are calling up legislators and showing up at rallies ‘unexpectedly’.  They really don’t care about platforms or donors, but they do care about how they are treated, and what politicians are doing to serve themselves instead of the people.

They come in all colors and genders and becoming more and more willing to express themselves.  So my word to reporters and commentators is that if you want your voice to remain relevant and your credibility to stay intact, then tell the whole story and not just the one you wish were true.  The people will be heard.  (I feel much better now.)
