What to Plant in New Bern NC Now

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Get ready to plant today. Here is what you can do now to ensure a great garden later. The calendar says to start cabbage indoors, plant onion and peas seeds this week, and gives you instructions on how to do so. This is such a great site because every week it tells you what to plant and how to do it.

As an added bonus, here is a great idea from on what you can do with your unused shoe holders.

Golds Gym in New Bern Nc

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Shake off those negative vibes, turn off that terrible news station and head off to New Bern’s only Gold’s Gym. Located at 3340 Martin Luther King Blvd between Target and the Twin Rivers Mall, Gold’s is easy to access.  

I started going to the gym before there ever was a gym there. Before they constructed Gold’s Gym, the company had a trailer set outside of it so that they could start to sell memberships. All these years later, their membership is growing strong.  

Here is a link to the class schedule
