Giving away a Foxfire book seems like a great way to start off a brand new year of celebrating Appalachia. During the snowy days of Christmas I cleaned out more than a few book shelves and discovered I had 2 copies of the Foxfire 2 book.

And the winner for December is…Carrie-Blue Ridge Mountain Mamma! Hope you enjoy the book Carrie.

    Tipper–Did you realize you just called all of us nuts (an acorn is a nut)? Guess you are right inasmuch as we are all nuts about Appalachian days and ways.
