My father’s parents were born in this area in 1902. My parents were born in 1932, and were married in 1952. I always thought that was an interesting play on the number 2. As with most towns in Tennessee in the 1920’s and 1930’s, there wasn’t a lot going on in the way of entertainment. Most of the area inhabitants were farmers who worked long hours to bring in crops and livestock.
I would like to thank Mohamad Al Karbi for the opportunity to participate in his “Around the World” series. I have truly enjoyed reading about different places and cultures all over the globe.
I’d like to share an insider’s view of my city, Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’ve lived close to “The Beach” my entire life. I went to college in this lively city, and now I’m raising my family here.
When you ask a person about the oldest structure in the world, many people would immediately think of the enchanting Taj Mahal. Though there are many recorded structures from earlier than 1653, the Taj Mahal comes to mind quickly due to its enchanting architecture and beauty.
I would like to give a Big Thank You to Mohamad Al Karbi for allowing me the honor of doing a Guest Post on his wonderful blog. While you are here, please be sure to take a moment to look around! There is a wide variety of talent from not only Mohamad, but his guests as well.
I hope you enjoy my piece on Traveling in Oregon.
Exploring the United States is an exciting prospect. But as vast as this country is, it would be a difficult thing to accomplish within reasonable time constraints. There is an alternative.
I found that the state of Oregon is just about as diverse in its beauty as the rest of the country is as a whole.
I would like to give you a personal mini-tour of the state.
Hi, I’m Joanna Lynn. First, I want to thank Mohamad Al Karbi for inviting me to write a guest post for his blog. Mohamad is always so encouraging and interested in what I write. He’s been a great blogging friend. I know part of Mohamad’s blog is about different places in the world and I would love to tell you all about my home city. So, welcome to Indianapolis, Indiana, in the United States.
Tennessee is sort of a funny shaped state. North to South, it is only 116 miles, while East to West it stretches 482 miles. Tennessee has three major cities, Knoxville in the East, Nashville in the Middle, and Memphis in the West. Since a great deal of the traffic through Tennessee is along Interstate 40, these three cities are the hubs for their areas. About 80 miles East of Nashville, and about 100 miles West of Knoxville is my hometown of Cookeville, TN. Being on Interstate 40 helps Cookeville to be the jumping off point for people traveling along the Interstate.
I want to start by sincerely thanking Mohamad for inviting me to be a guest here. I have moved several times over the years yet have traveled very little. I want to share with everyone the story of the local area where I have spend my time the last 12 years, Small Town, USA.
