Photo: Old Glendale Mill

Near my house is what they use to call the Glendale Mill, mainly because it's not really there anymore. The mill was built from early planning in 1830 to finally shutting it's doors in the cotton industry in 1961. In 2004 even though it had been vacant, it caught fire and now it's in ruins. This tower and few other things is really the only things still standing for the mill. 

Question: Is Julia Roberts The World's Most Beautiful Woman?

I have to admit, I don't have anything against Julia Roberts, but People magazine recently dubbed her (for a fifth time but not in-a-row) the most beautiful woman in the world. Beauty can mean different things, but I could name quite a few other women off the top of my head with ease. I think Kate Beckinsale, Charlize Theron, and Scarlett Johansson easily outrank her there. 

What do you think? 

Fact of the Day: President Driving

One of the things that modern presidents cannot do once taking office is drive themselves on public roads. However Presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush did drive on their own private property as they both had ranches.

Photos: Old Glendale Bridge

 I live very close to the Glendale Shoals Reserve in Spartanburg, SC. It's bascially an old bridge, mill, waterfall, and other things that have been "preserved" as a "park" which is located on the Pacolet River. I like going down here as the tiny waterfall is beautiful.
