Moving on over

I've combined my blogs, just look at the last post, over at Alchemy of Clay. Trying to have a life outside blogland. Not sure it's going to work....

Original Center of Town

Have you ever seen a "center point" of a town?  The red sign on the lip of this monument says it's not an ashtray.  Notice how some friendly visitors have decided to use the rocks to chip away the monument.

Black Mountain, NC became incorporated in 1893, with one mile in all directions.

The way I learned math, if you go one mile out in all directions, that makes a circle two miles in diameter.  I wonder if that's true.  Somehow I think the "men" who did this survey made a square instead.  I've always been a trouble maker.
