Elizabeth City 300 Truck and Tractor Pull @ Morgan’s Corner Pulling Park

This Truck and Tractor Pull happened in June 2013, while I still worked at the Elizabeth City Convention & Visitors Bureau, at Morgan’s Corner Pulling Park. Though I have great footage (at least I think so) I didn't note all the names who pulled so that is why they aren't marked on the video. Nevertheless, check out the Closed Captioning to read what I am hearing the announcers say if you think that'll help you understand them better. I hope you'll enjoy!


** All photography and video footage in my video creation above were taken by me! **

Supporting Ron Paul in 2007

Okay .... this is a very old video I created in 2007 when I worked for the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (ECACVB). During that time in the "political climate" Ron Paul had quite the support group ... enough for them to launch a Ron Paul banner on a blimp from TCOM in Elizabeth City, NC. The video is still being aired over one ECAVB's YouTube Acct (Click Here to check it out) when I originally posted it BUT I thought it was time to posted it on my blog. So, here you go...


Ron Paul Blimp Launch - December 14, 2007 from From Me to You ... Videos on Vimeo.

The blimp features a slogan that reads, "Who is Ron Paul?" the 200-foot-long blimp (larger than the famous Goodyear blimp) promotes the Texas congressman's Republican presidential bid. It was launched from the TCOM base in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on December 14, 2007. This video shows the morning Rally, Welcome, and Launching of the Blimp. This photography, video footage and creation was put together by Jessica Faulkingham (owner of From Me to You...) when she worked at Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

I'm getting back into the swing of things...

I'm so happy! My video creation program works on my new laptop! AND .... I have the urge to CREATE again! I'm not sure what I'll make for videos ... I just have hopes that they'll be good. *hahaa*

Anyway ... here's my little teaser that I've been thinking about making since I filmed it at my Mother's house back in August of this year ...

It's A Rundown Life: Elizabeth City, North Carolina

Image of :: I'm not sure how many more years this old barn has left in it but I drive past it almost daily and loved the rundown look of it. So, when I finally found a day where the sun was hitting it just right I needed to take a photo of it.

Date Taken :: February 15th 2012




Location :: Elizabeth City, North Carolina -- about where the map shows --

Books & Animals Just Don't Mix...

Okay, since my husband and I are moving in about 2-3 months so I'm trying to get through my TBR pile that I've had for a while. Therefore, I decided to start reading Jacquelyn Frank's "SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS" last night and this is what I found ....


Now I will admit that I knew that it was bitten before I picked it up, since it was at my local library's seasonal book sale, but I just didn't realize how bad it was until yesterday. Thankfully, the previous owner was nice enough to hang onto the 6 torn up corners that I found stuck in the middle of the novel but I needed to tape up/reenforce a little over 25 other pages too. *shakes head*

I guess the pet found "SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS" mighty tasty! *hehee* Now that it's all put together I hope I'll like it just as much! =0)

*sigh* I'm sorry!!

Hey all .... I love having this blog and I AM NOT GIVING IT UP so please keep following me ... and I STILL plan on having monthly contests ... and reviewing as much as possible. HOWEVER, the reason I have dwindled from posting just about every two days or so to a little longer in-between is because I'M PREGNANT!!! YAY!! My husband and I have been trying for over a year and a half so we're very happy and excited. BUT that also means that I've been dealing with morning sickness for the past 3 weeks and haven't felt motivated (much) to reading as much as I was before. Which really sucks, since even though my hubby might not have liked the amount of time I put into reading books, I did like it. *hehee* =0)

*sigh* Anyway ... I'm trying to stay on track and like I said I still plan on posting as much as I can and keeping up with the monthly contests ... but I just wanted to let you know why I have suddenly slowed down from my posting.

Thanks for your support! ♥

Take care, Jess

Port Discover's Window of Wonder :: Black Swallowtail

Hi all ... since June 2010 I've been working as the Operations Manager at Port Discover in Elizabeth City, NC. Recently my co-worker has started a display in one of our windows, now called the "Window of Wonder", and right now, we have some Black Swallowtail Caterpillars on display. We're hoping to watch their lifecycle so we'll get to see them turn from caterpillars into butterflies!

Here's a picture that I took of one of the caterpillars that's in our display:

Port Discover's What Will You Do, Dr. Goo?

On Friday, July 2, 2010 I filmed Port Discover & Arts of the Albemarle's Center Players' performance called 'What Will You Do, Dr. Goo?'

Performance Description: It's an original play written and directed by Cheryl Blackwelder. About when Dr. Goo is given a secret formula by his arch nemesis, Ms. Evil, the good doctor must use the Scientific Method to save himself before he is turned into...a Flubbity-Wubber! The program was designed especially for elementary-aged scientists and presented by the middle and high school members of the Center Players.

Here are videos (Part 1 & 2) of that performance, which I put together:

MOA's How to be a Pirate!

On May 15, 2010, in conjunction with the North Carolina Potato Festival, the Museum of the Albemarle held a 'Pirate Day' where visitors could meet members of Blackbeard's Crew, a Virginia based historic reenactor group, that invaded Museum of the Albemarle for the public to experience a pirate's way of life through a live encampment and demonstrations. This video is just a bit of some of one of the activities going on that day.

Video Creation Programs Suck Sometimes

Okay ... this is a ranting post since I'm having a hell of a time with what I'm doing so I thought I'd spill. I created a video using my usual software [Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 8.0] and after getting it all set up ... the f***ing program is saying I can't create it. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing is working. GRRRRRRR!!!!!! So, tonight I'll give up for now .. let my computer cool off [since with the thunderstorm it was hot today] .. and HOPE that it'll load/create/save tomorrow. *crossing fingers* Please wish me luck!

Since if not you won't be able to see the 2010 North Carolina Potato Festival's National Potato Peeling Contest Video(s). *sigh* That or I'll have to redo the video from scratch, which I'd rather not do if possible. =0P

Also ... once I'm finished with this one [whether it saves or I give up], I am hoping to create and upload two other Potato Fest videos about the Lucky Duck Derby and MOA's Pirate activity! Therefore ... keep checking this blog or www.YouTube.com/FrommetoyouvideophotoBlogspot to see if they have been uploaded for viewing!
