August, for many, marks those last, long days of

summer that may be savored with a trip to the

coast, mountains, somewhere in-between or simply

rocking in the porch swing as the sun begins to set.

This month, we make the quick trip to Wilmington to

set a spell with North Carolina bestselling author Celia

Rivenbark, whose latest book, “You Don’t Sweat Much

for a Fat Girl,” epitomizes Southern humor at its best.

Southerners may be known for their drawl, but

assuredly for their cuisine. The Moore County Chamber

of Commerce sets the table with its annual fund-raiser

in the Culinary Showcase where businesses compete

for top honors. With good food in mind, the Apex Rotary

works with Carrabba’s Italian Grill to add more flavor to

local Meals on Wheels deliveries. And all of this savory

food might leave you thirsty

for some North Carolina wine like the muscadine and

other fruit variety of Adams Vineyards in Willow Spring,

where the family legacy grows deep on this century farm.

With all good things in moderation, stay alert and be

aware of the latest scams to avoid their negative impact

in recognition of National Fraud Awareness.

We also accentuate the positive with the pets in our

lives and the veterinarians like Diane Schaller, DVM,

who find honor in caring for our furry best friends.

Welcoming friends and guests is what three couples

do best at their respective bed and breakfast inns:

Knollwood House, A Bed of Roses and Rosemary

House, all of which could provide a perfect late summer

getaway. Each was kind enough to share a scrumptious

breakfast recipe, too. Until next month...
