I'm Mark Levin and have lived all my life "in the country" except for four years during college and the next eight years afterwards.
The rest of my time has been spent in and around very small towns.
You'd think I would have learned a lot about country living during all those years, but to be truthful...I can't grow a thing. I tried once to grow cucumbers. I did get one worthy of a salad and I'm thinking it cost me 30 bucks. That experience gave me a whole new respect for farmers.
But now that I'm "mostly" retired...I'm ready to learn new things and I plan to share my increasing knowledge with you. In a fun way, or at least I'm hoping it's fun.
I live on ten acres outside of Columbus, NC where I've been with my wife, Bobbie, for well over 30 years. I'm mostly retired now. When I was working it was mostly in education as a teacher or in communications. Currently I do write and photograph for a local magazine (Life in Our Foothills).
I also have a podcast with an old camp friend of mine, Gary Eblen. We're "The Gary and Mark Show" and you can find us at: www.garyandmark.com.
I also have a local blog about people and places in the Carolina Foothills called, Foothills Faces. Check it out at: www.foothillsfaces.com.
