Discovering Brunswick Plantation

Lou and Mark lived in Chicago and were ready to get out of the snow! idealfindanexpo1-300x118They went to Chicago Live South Shows…Now known as Ideal Living Shows. They checked out many other areas and states…Georgia and Tennessee, as well as places in North and South Carolina.

Brunswick Plantation framed entranceThey said they felt no  pressure and were impressed with what they saw, especially the entrance and beautiful drive the elegant, southern style Plantation House! They said they rang a doorbell to ask a couple living here how they like it, and the couple invited them in to chat. They visited with couple and shared a glass of wine. True Southern Hospitality sold them on living in this beautiful, friendly community!

Brunswick Activites Views Collage2Lou and Mark say that you buy a Lifestyle! They loved the Southern Architecture and Lifestyle design of Brunswick Plantation! Home prices were low, as well as the taxes! They bought a lot and worked with Todd Helf to design the home where they still live. They felt Todd was easy to work with, and they liked the fact that there are many models and all of the houses don’t look alike. Everything is different…A real southern community! Carolina Room20150224_195615They were able to have the inside design that they wanted with the Carolina room on the other side of the house than the models. It suited them there better and looks bright and cozy! They were also very happy with their construction, even though they were not here all of the time it was being built. They could really trust the builder! Mark and Lou say that they are so Happy living at Brunswick Plantation that “They just pinch themselves” that they should be so Fortunate!

Polo Match…Goal!

As good luck would have it, another high school friend of Mark’s went to the match and invited Lou, her boss, to go to the match with her. That is how Mark and Lou met for the first time…At their very first Polo match! Seems like they made a Goal Score together that changed their life that day! They have only been to one other polo match years later, but the marriage has lasted much longer. They will celebrate their 42nd Wedding Anniversary on April 14, 2015! “Happy Anniversary” to our Favorite Brunswick Polo Pair!

Folks at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® are fortunate to have “A Two State Solution” to Fun Ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in North and South Carolina!

The “Heart” of It All!

valentines-day-candy-hearts-1We see the symbol of the Heart that we all know for Valentine’s Day.  It is in cards, candy, and many other Valentine treats! The Valentine’s Day Conversation Candy Hearts began to be around the time of the Civil War. The original candy hearts were called “cockles” and were made from sugar and flour.  Mottoes or sayings were printed on paper and rolled inside the folded, shell shaped candy. Later, in the 1860’s, the NECCO company began printing sayings on their candy.  The candy became popular at weddings with sayings such as “Married in white, you have chosen right” and foretold humorous prophesies of the new marriage!

The conversation candy hearts that we are familiar with today, date back to 1902. The company printed sayings on candy shapes..The sweetest of all being  on Marriage Proposals! Talk about Making Your Heart Sing!

cadbury-chocolate-chocolate-valentine-hearts-gift-setNow there are millions of  Heart shaped boxes of chocolates sold each year. The first box of chocolates made for Valentine’s Day was made by Richard Cadbury in the 1800’s.Valentineairplanevalentineblank There are Hearts on Valentines…For all Ages! Children love to exchange Valentine cards with each other. Valentie4b282af71c420471612e25a681625b1d_question_quizThe oldest know Valentine’s Day card is on display at the British Museum in London.  It dates back to the 1400’s! There are now over 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards sent worldwide every year. King Henry VII of England declared St. Valentine’s Day a holiday in 1537! Valentine’s Day is celebrated in America, Italy, United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, France, Australia, and Denmark! Love Makes the World Go Round!

 Lithuanian Roots

Babs grew up in a Lithuanian community in PA.  Though people did not live in just one part of town, they did attend the church of  their heritage. Babs family attended the Lithuanian Catholic Church.  Others in town attended Polish Catholic, Slovak Catholic, or German Catholic…where service could be held in the language of their heritage. Babs’ family are believed to have come from Lithuania in the late 1800’s.  Babs and her son, Mike, did a family pilgrimage trip to Lithuania together a few years ago.  Babs wrote a three part series, with pictures, about their trip in the 2005 editions of Myrtle Beach Alternatives.

Babs and Mike learned a lot about their family heritage on their trip to Lithuania. Lithuania is at the geographic center of Europe…On the shores of the Baltic Sea. lithuanian_flag_JAN11The flag of Lithuania is Gold, Green, and Red signifying the sun, forests, and blood shed by the people in defense of their Homeland. Though Lithuania suffered under the occupation of Germany and Russia, Babs did not hear any bitterness toward the Germans or Soviets. It was more like these are the facts – This Happened- Now let us Create History rather than repeat it! Russia was in Lithuania until 1991. Lithuania was the first Soviet Republic to declare Independence. President Ford said: “We recognize Lithuania as a separate country!”

Trakai Castle LithuaniaBabs and Mike visited Trakai Castle, completed in 1400, and rebuilt in 1955 after being destroyed after war with the Russians. The castle is built on an island off of Lake of Galve.  Trakai is a treasure,as is the beautiful country of Lithuania. Babs says Lithuania is a Tourist’s Dream. She notes that the country Has it All…Beautiful cities, cobblestone streets, gorgeous landscapes, and more! Babs would go back in a Heartbeat!

Folks at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® are so Happy to have Babs and Flash in our community! They really exemplify the words of Henry David Thoreau: “This world is but a canvas to our imagination!” Dancing through life to the tune of Beach Music would seem to create a life described by Deepak Chopra when he stated: “The healthiest response to life is Joy”! Babs and Flash certainly know how to spread the Joy…Lucky for Us!

Babs says the scientists she worked with were the such dedicated civil servants! They absolutely loved their work!

Babs quit after her 50th birthday, as Flash had retired and they wanted to make their home in the South.

Flash…Marines to DC

Flash was originally also from PA., but his family had moved around quite a bit. Most were towns in Pennsylvania, but he and his Mom had also lived with his uncle’s family Arizona and Nevada.

Iwo Jima CollageFlash later had the honor of serving 2 years in the Drill Corps in D.C. and participated in the Iwo Jima Memorial Day Ceremonies and the Sunset Parade on Fridays in the summer. He notes that the Sunset Parade is still something worthwhile to see on Fridays when you are in DC .

Flash had just completed 4 years in the Marine Corps. when he came to DC for employment. One of his jobs while in the Marine Corps, Flash had been a clerk in the Marine Corps office.  When he arrived to take a test for a position in the government, he was told that the test for the position was closed. He turned to walk away but was called back when they found he was a veteran and had Veterans Preference which allowed him to take the test. He was hired and later went to a community college which put him on the cutting edge of computers in programs systems analysis. gov. Boyerspict1967_corbis_fpf_pubAt the time all information was on cards, and records were stored in a cave  mine in Boyers, PA. The computer he worked first used was in the basement of the government building and took up the whole room! I’d say…We’ve come a  Long Way, Baby!  system_analyst,S-R-345771-1Flash worked at that job for 30 years. His 4 years Marine Corps time counted for retirement. So, he retired with 34 1/2 years of service at the age of 52.

Babs & Flash…Choosing Brunswick Plantation as Home

Babs and Flash came to the Carolinas when their daughter, Pam, played softball in a tournament sat UNCW in Wilmington. They passed Brunswick Plantation and decided to check it out along with other places in the area. There were only two trailers here at the time. BP old median20001The Brunswick House and Plantation House were not yet built. They first talked with, Hank, the agent here at the time, on a Thursday and then called around to learn more about Brunswick. They called the Better Business Bureau and were told the developers were Local Boys who could be trusted. Everyone in the area knew Mason and vouched for him.  The lot they were looking at had fallen through, and it was On Sale for 10% Down at the price of $2,800. They thought this was affordable for their budget.  Some golf communities they had looked at were more expensive. So, they returned on Saturday, talked to Hank , and signed the business papers…The year was 1992. They left feeling that they did a really good thing!

Babs and Flash came to Brunswick Plantation a  couple of times a year after buying their property in 1992.BP Tent Dinner0003 They enjoyed the owner’s party and how friendly everyone was at these Get-Togethers! They also trusted Mason and found him to be a good steward and Faithful person. They loved the beach and golf…This was a perfect place for them! They also enjoyed dancing and would soon really love to do the Shag…And their Beach Names! SS-ParadeIn fact, for years they led the parade & banner at the SOS (Society of Stranders) Shag parade!There will be more about the Shag experiences in next week’s blog!  They said they came here to…Actually Live Here to try new foods, meet new friends, and learn new things!

They were advised by Bonnie Black, another realtor…Build for yourself!  You deserve it! They thought the prices at Brunswick Plantation were good and affordable for them and worked with Todd on a floor plan. They also liked the idea that they could help design the inside of the house they planned to build.  The inside was your choice! They chose 1/2 of one house blueprint and 1/2 of another. They chose the very high vaulted ceilings. They were actually the 17th family to build at Brunswick Plantation. Babs and Flash are well known by many in the Plantation for their greeting to new owners with a loaf of Babs’ delicious home-made bread! For many years, they greeted new owners with that fresh loaf of bread …Welcome to the Neighborhood!

The Art of it All!

Music is the Rhythm, Art is the Passion…Life is the Subject!

Babs found Artist Within Her when she moved to Brunswick…20 years ago! She says that ” After years of nurturing and caring for others, she found she had the Freedom to do “What makes her heart beat”…Painting makes her Heart Beat!  This Freedom heightened her awareness of the creative process. She says that the creative process is as mysterious as the unfolding of life, the revealing of an emotion, passion, or a surprise.

When she first started to paint, she said she pretended she was five years old. They love to draw and color.  They don’t know what they can’t do.  Playing is what they do! She notes that in the book the Tao of Watercolor, Jeanne Carbonetti says, “Playfulness is the ability to respond with the newness of a child’s wonder and the skill of a practiced adult.” Babs is experimenting , exercising discipline in setting aside time for learning new skills, getting In Touch with that Inner Child, exploring color – not knowing what is going to happen – allowing space and time for the creative process, and respecting the creative process!

Famous quotes on Art and Creativity include:

  • Pablo Picasso: Every child is an artist! Everything you can imagine is real!
  • Albert Einstein: Creativity is Intelligence having Fun!  Every artist was first an amatuer! Creativity is contagious, Pass it on!
  • Maya Angelou: You can’t use up creativity.  The more you use it, the more you have!

Babs said she used to work at her volunteer as a Mom at her children’s schools, she found herself designated as the Art Aide. That included making patterns for turkeys and pumpkins, illustrating the alphabet to teaching art, working with clay, and developing seasonal projects.  She never thought of herself as an artist until she and Flash moved from Northern Virginia to Calabash.

Babs started painting in 2000. Nancy Murray, at the Parson’s Table, started a quilting group which she joined. Shirley Shackett was an artist who first encouraged Babs. She joined the Waterway Art Association which then met at the Calabash Fire Hall.  It now meets at the new Senior Center in Shallotte…Wednesdays @ 9:30 – 12:30. Shirley said she had a teacher who thought would be good for Babs. Mary Griffith was that teacher. Mary had started painting in the 60’s.  Babs had done no painting yet, so Mary told her to do drawings and bring them to her so she could see if there was something there. When Babs brought the drawings, Mary said, “Good, let’s see if you can paint!” She told her to always save the first thing you  do and frame it. Babs has that first painting and has been painting ever since!

20150127_133908She took a class in Greensboro, NC for 1 and 1/2 years with Chuck Mclachlin, staying with friends on those days. Babs was to paint a watercolor of a barn from a photos and she painted a picture of the Gande Canal in Venice from a photo she had. His advice to her was: “Don’t ever let anyone change your style!” Babs said, ” A whole New World Opened Up!”

20150127_135717Babs later worked with Abracts Artist, Gerald Brommer.  He told her that he never met anyone like her in all of his workshops. She did her own thing…Had her own style! He encouraged Babs to do the many abstracts and collages she is doing today! She has done workshops on doing collage.

 Beach Music by Calabash Flash…Bluesman Flash

calabashflash5Speaking of making your Heart Beat and Creativity, Flash has become a popular songwriter, as well as a musician and singer!

Even when he was known as Patrick Ludwick, Flash enjoyed music. When he was still in high school he had a 7 – 9 “Music of the Day”…”Pat’s Platter Party” on the radio at KOFA in Yuma, Arizona.  It was arranged by his Uncle Guido, a radio announcer, with whom he and his Mom were living at the time. Flash went to the post office where he got a stack of 45’s from Record Companies…Promos for the radio station! He went through them to play and people called in for requests. That was the summer through November of 1958!

For their first Christmas of marriage, Babs got a sewing machine and gave Flash a guitar. He learned to play chords…C, A Minor, F, and G7. He played by ear and loved R&R songs. Moving to the Carolinas opened a World of Music for him.  He has been singing and writing his own songs with much success. Flash collageHe has written songs and made CD’s that are loved by many…Sometimes topping  the music charts!! He has even been nominated for songwriter awards:

  • 2008, “Flash Flood” CD received a nomination for the CBMA Solo Album of the Year. He felt honored that these nominations are submitted by industry people.

Though they are polar opposites in style, they are …Both Proven Winners! Both are considered “Elite” Quarterbacks with the ability to Lead and sometimes even “Will” his team to victory!

Tom Brady

tom-brady-240x320Tom Brady, at the age of 37, has been around longer and is a back to back Super Bowl Champion. His experience and ability to stay calm are considered to be some of his strengths. He is also a good decision maker which leads to easy, accurate throws. Brady is the first quarterback to start six title games…Winning three Super Bowl Championships. He is hoping to join his Football Idol, Joe Montana, with four Super Bowl Rings.

Tom was the youngest child and only son of Tom Brady, Sr. and Galynn Brady. There were already three lovely daughters born before Tom. Father and son were inseparable and Tom Sr. had his son playing golf at age 3.  Tom had developed a competitive spirit and distaste for losing by the age of 8 when making bets with his dad.

Tom Brady collageTom is very passionate about the game of football.His teammate, Connolly, says that it is always about “doing what’s best for the team”!  Friends say that though he lives and breathes the sport, he really is a homebody.  He loves to spend time with is lovely wife, Brazilian supermodel, Gisele, and his children.

Height are considered some of his strengths, as he can be extremely fast! They say he is …As dangerous with his feet as with his arm! Coaches and teammates say they are in awe of his composure mental skills. Richard Sherman notes that, “Russ does all kinds of stuff you never think of…It just works!”

Russel is the son of Harrison (Harry)  and Tammy Wilson. He has an older brother, Harrison IV. Russell’s sister, Anna, is also an accomplished athlete and leads her AAU basketball team at a private school in Virginia. Russell says Anna is the best athlete in their family.

RussellHarry-wilsonRussell Wilson was very influenced by his father, Harrison Wilson III, an  quarterback at Dartmouth…For three State Title Winners. Harrison Wilson also became a well-respected lawyer and member of his community. He told his son to “Always have a great purpose in life.” Harrison and his son discussed often the value of academics, the role of athletics, and the need to  maximize your skills in both. Sadly, Harrison Wilson, debilitated by diabetes & a stroke, passed away in June of 2010…the day after his son was drafted by the Colorado Rockies.

Wilson Kasey-and-RussellRussell’s Mother, Tammy, a legal nurse consultant, raised her son in Faith and good works. Russell became a Christian at age 14 when he says he saw Jesus in a dream. Russell is an active volunteer in the Seattle Community and is a national ambassador for the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association.

Coaches for 2015 Super Bowl Teams

Bill Belichick…New England Patriots

New England Patriots at Washington Redskins 08/28/09The Patriots coach, Bill Belichick, has been head coach with the New England Team since the year 2000.  Owner, Robert Kraft, gave  him near-complete control over the team’s football operations.  This made him effectively the team’s general manager. February 1st, 2015 will be Patriots with Coach Belichick sixth trip to the Super Bowl! A 4th Super Bowl win would break the tie with Coaches Joe Gibbs & Bill Walsh and tie Belinchick for the lead with Coach Chuck Noll.

Coaching continuously various roles in the NFL, he earned his first head-coaching job with the Cleveland Browns in 1991.  This makes Belichick the NFL’s longest-tenured active head coach! Bill seems born into a football family, as Bill’s father, Steve Belichick,  was an assistant football coach at the United States Naval Academy.

USP NFL: MIAMI DOLPHINS AT NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS S FBN USA MABill Belichick’s coaching style is characterized by players as:

  • Strict and ordered. 
  • They credit his emphasis on knowledge, focus, plain hard work!
  • Belichick is to have told them, “The only way to get better in football is to wear pads and actually play football!”
  • They say he does laugh and is even very funny!
  • However, he believes the following…”Playing well is playing well! It’s doing your job!” 
  • “If you want to be better, be better!”

Pete Carroll…Seattle Seahawks

petenfl_u_pete-carroll2_mb_600x400The Seahawks coach, Pete Carroll, took over the Seattle team in 2010. They had their 2014 Super Bowl win under his leadership. Carroll was the head coach for the Patriots for three years…1997 until he was fired in 1999, after a winning season. So, Carroll says about facing the Patriots with the Seahawks in this 2015 Super Bowl: “It’s a little bit personal.”  He then left the NFL and went to coach at the University of Southern California  where he built a powerhouse team with three of his stars winning Heisman Trophies. Carroll is  known as a “New Age” type of coach.

russell wilson & coachCarroll’s coaching style:

  • Great Effort, Great Enthusiasm, Great toughness…Play Smart!
  • Philosophy: Do things better than they have ever been done before.
  • Players say: He is relentlessly positive with constant energy and a cheerful, enthusiastic, encouraging style.
  • He rarely yells and tells players to meditate and get some sleep.
  • He has the team imagine themselves in the big moment and see themselves making the “Big Play”!
  • Carroll’s book “Win Forever” expresses how his early coaching challenges brought forth these truths.
