Things to do in Florence, SC

Slowing things down…

September 30, 2013

I never thought I would talk about semi-retirement at the ripe old age of somewhere under 40 and over 30, but I am. On this website at least. My actual job that pays the bills takes up a lot of time. My free time to explore is more limited now than it was in the […]

Long Grain Cafe

September 3, 2013

Have y’all tried Long Grain cafe yet? I have been a few times and really enjoy it. My favorite menu item there (and maybe in all of Florence) is the tomato basil soup. It is delicious and every time I think about it… I want a bowl. Their prices are reasonable. Last time I went, […]

Audition time!  This is a straight play, which means you don’t have to be able to sing!  (This is very helpful for Flossip.) (Look at me with the theatre lingo!)(How many things can I put in parenthesis?)(There are rumors that I may even audition. Unconfirmed, of course.)   Auditions are Wednesday August 21, 2013 at […]
