hi jim and a big welcome from the tarheel state!!!!(north carolina) it's called the tarheel state because during the civil war,north carolina was a big producer of tar and turpentine....and,it seems a bunch of northern soldiers were chasing some rebel soldiers from the north carolina regiment and the rebels were making a good pace ahead of the union guys...the union soldiers yelled out to "put some tar on their heels,to slow them down!"...and of course when general lee heard about this story,he commented,"god bless them tarheels!"...and now you know the rrest of the story!!!Welcome Aboard!!!
