    I'm first up on the NC Songwriters stage this morning--Duke Homestead is having their "Pork, Pickles, and Peanuts" summer festival, and we've been invited to be part of it. Music will be happening all day, and there will be several events including a barbecue cook-off, and a pie contest. I'll pull out my local food-related songs, and we'll have some fun.
