Old Salem and War of 1812

OK, the Old Salem event for the War of 1812 wasn't to commemorate the Brits burning the White House.  It was to honor the writing of the Star Spangled Banner.

The baker (and his wife) gave their friendly presentations, but we were pretty tired and hot by the time we visited the bakery.  When we looked at the prices of the Moravian cookies (which are delicious, but weren't offered as samples) we had to pass.

This house wasn't open as a display when we visited Old Salem on Aug. 23, 2014.  But the sign clearly shows "pants made here."  I would imagine that a tailor worked here.

Quote for today:

Human beings are very much like drops of water in an endless ocean. Our worth comes from our role as distinct individuals as well as our role as an integral part of something larger than ourselves. Simply awakening to this concept can help you rediscover the copious and awe-inspiring worth within each and every one of us.


  1. I have enjoyed the Old Salem posts. And I really love today's quote.

    1. Thanks, now I need to visit Brevard again! Hope Lucy is doing better.

  2. That is a great quote and I enjoyed another wonderful post B. Thank you :)

  3. Thanks Denise...if you like some of the quotes that don't have a name, they are probably from Daily Om DOT com. I like the ideas they offer...and send them along.
