Miss Nancy Minds Their Manners

You all may remember that I wrote a post in May 2009 about the most fabulous Manners Camp in Hertford, North Carolina. Real life Nancy Rascoe is ever a Southern Bell. At 74 years old, she taught our triplets about manners, life, and fun in the rivah (river). They learned how to set and clear the table for dinnah (dinner), how to shake someone's hand and make introductions, and how to answer the telephone. Miss Nancy and her staff of Mr. Peter, Miss Blue, and Miss Anna were there to charm, love, and teach our precious little dahlins. At the end of the week, parents answered a handwritten invitation for tea by returning at noon on a Friday for tea and a presentation. Let me just tell you, seeing your child at Manners Camp simply melts your heart.
My heart was not the only one that melted. The fabulous duo of Martha Daniels and Caroline Paxton managed to make a documentary film about Miss Nancy and her Manners Camp houseparties. It is a modern day look at the South. Miss Nancy runs her camps in the summer, but her real work happens as a volunteer at the local elementary school during the school year. She is a true Southern lady, and I am privileged to know her. The talented Martha Daniels and Caroline Paxton have done an AMAZING job of capturing Miss Nancy and the precious children that have entered her life. You will love this movie!
Our son loved Miss Nancy and her camp so much that he requested to attend it TWICE. He did! In fact, at age 9 1/2, he said he would LOVE to go back! We recently watched the documentary on DVD Our family laughed and cried! We had a room full of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and baby cousins who watched this captivating film. If you love the South, are a fan of manners, or appreciate a true work of art documentary, then you need to order a DVD TODAY!
As always, the Southern Documentary Fund is a great place to donate to keep our southern culture alive! If you would like to order a DVD for your own enjoyment, Martha Daniel has offered a great deal for TODAY ONLY. The DVDS are usually $25 each.

I LOVE this! I wish we had a such a camp close to us. Is she in North Carolina? Perhaps we could tie in a camp stay for our kids during one of our beach or mountain vacations!

When applied in cool, wet weather, it can cause
burning of the leaves and the russeting of fruit. In addition, fertilizer restores to the soil nutrients that
are absorbed by years of growing the same vegetable plants in the
same location. Subtle gardening themes act upon the subconscious, and merely give the observer a pleasant feeling.

Or, when we speak of American capitalism, do we mean jobs
for our people, medical care for all of us, decent wages and decent retirements.

Several news reports, writers, and analysts play a crucial role in the development of global news undoubtedly.
The growth in the circulation of newspapers
in the country results in the overall economic prosperity of the country, inspiring it to higher
levels. I want them to be thrilled by the idea that each of us is capable of
running into high adventure on every street corner and in every friendship.

Eva Mentis seemed like someone who had gone though what I was going through so I ordered the product

I could feel a difference. It can also be left in the hair as
a conditioner but it may be hard to explain the tomatoes.

Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking a few minutes and
actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole
lot and don't manage to get anything done.
