Yate's Mill Pond

This is Yates Mill Pond in Raleigh, NC. It has been restored to working condition and there is a nice little park area, complete with nature trails and a museum with artifacts and history of the Mill and the people who were caretakers in the late 18 and early 1900's. My friend, Becky and I went with our kids, a few Saturday's ago, to visit and hang out with the girls. I like this picture.

This is a millstone, used to grind corn into flour. I think that farmers brought wheat and barley here to be ground, as well. It's amazing the number of phrases, regularly used in the English language, that have their origin in Milling and Millstones. 'Fair to midlin,' refers to the grind of the corn, 'run of the mill,' and 'keep your nose to the grindstone,' are just a few of many more. If you know more, post them here!
