News form the Redoubt of The East

U.S.’s Oldest Cave and Rock Art Discovered in Tennessee : “At more than 6,000 years old, prehistoric cave and rock art found in what is today Tennessee is easily the oldest discovered yet within the United States.”

America’s Ancient Cave Art : “Deep in the Cumberland Plateau, mysterious drawings, thousands of years old, offer a glimpse of lost Native American cultures and traditions.”

Tennessee agriculture officials on watch for aggressive bees : “The migration of Africanized bees into Tennessee has state agriculture officials and beekeepers on alert.”

Tennessee Department of Agriculture says Farmers Markets Popular Even in Rural Areas : “Tennessee’s farmers markets are popping up everywhere—even in the heart of Tennessee farm lands. You’d think that in areas where many in the community still farm and grow gardens, the farmers market concept wouldn’t get much traction, but in fact, it’s in small towns and rural communities that most new farmers markets are showing up.”

Tennessee ranked fourth most charitable state in the country : “Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina round out the top five, giving between 7.2% and 6.4% of annual income.”

Thinking about relocating, then consider moving to my “neck-of-the-woods”  or as Joel M. Skousen, has dubbed it “The Redoubt of The East” find land here and here. We could be neighbors.

Keep the good news coming. I’m still planing on taking a “vacation” down to TN.

WOW! Looking at those amazing properties. Beautiful.
The prices are incredible! People looking for retreat in that part of the country….Look at these… WOW!
We could sell out place and buy something nice for cash……..

But, I fall over and die in the humidity. When I visit the south I feel like someone threw a steaming hot wet towel over my face and I can’t breathe. My hair turns into a humougous fro and collects critters and sticks and stuff.
I am a mountain girl to the bone. I love my dry air and snow up to my eyeballs. Until it all catches on fire. UG,

Saw an interesting news story recently. Joel Skousen crashed his Glasair kitplane on approach to the airport near his home in Spanish Fork, UTAH. Nothing wrong with living in Utah, have spent many years there. But I would have expected an “expert” who recommends a given area would be living in it.

Ye shall know them by their fruits.

Sorry… I’ll try to tone it back a bit.

So the question begs to be asked, Did hillbillies originate in Kentucky and migrate to TN, where they learned to communicate with means other than grunts and hollers?

I lived in KY for a while. Better you should not ask that question. ;=}
