More than 300,000 people moved to North Carolina from another state during 2018, new estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau show. While some 200,000 people moved away from North Carolina during the same period.  Many movers didn’t go far: Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia were among the top states of origin and destination during the year.  In 2018, Florida was the single state that saw the most residents moving to North Carolina.  https://www.journalnow.com/news/local/more-called-north-carolina-home-in/article_c74acc60-8920-54c6-a227-2e0d1ec1b209.html

The US Marine Corp turned 244 yesterday (on Sunday)

In a related story:  All Marines now have the right to bear umbrellas, for the first time in their more than 200-year history.

Prior to the recent updates in uniform regulations, women in the Marines were allowed to use umbrellas, but the men were not.  The small umbrellas will have to be all black and carried in their left hand to allow for a proper salute.

The Marines will also now allow women to wear silver stud earrings.
