  2. Duke just lost for the 1st time in 41 home games... and a second game in a row. Strange happenings in Raleigh, for sure

  8. That's an impressive looking building. Enjoyed your photos, thank you. One of these days I'd love to take a look at Roanoke. Gregg says we went there when we first got married but my memories aren't very clear. We are overdue. We were supposed to have snow here but nothing this morning and none for the rest of the day apparently.

  14. Very impressive, indeed! I'd be curious how much the building weighs. All that stone has to be tremendously heavy.
