Manning BBQ for more than 70 years

Posted on April 23, 2018 1:01 pm by Laura Stone


In 1947, the Denny and the Haley families opened a small barbeque restaurant in Manning, D&H Barbeque. With a need to replace their management in the mid-80s, they offered the position to Henry Brailsford. Henry was already in restaurant work. He had completed Hamburger University and had just become store manager at a McDonald’s in Santee. “At first, I wasn’t interested, but they kept making offers until I couldn’t refuse.” In the late 90s, the owners wished to retire, and they sold Henry the business. Henry is involved in community services and supports Clarendon County where he can. However, a… Read the rest

Routines are important. They help establish a daily pathway that outlines and guides the day sunrise to sunset and almost all points in between. If you have pets, you know they need a daily routine also. For instance, in our house, the morning routine is very important to Livvy and Zeus. Livvy is our rescue cat and Zeus is our rescue dog. Each morning Livvy wakes me up promptly at 5 a.m. by jumping on the bed and then over to my nightstand where she starts knocking stuff off to land on Zeus’s head. He of course gets in trouble… Read the rest

Jimmy Buffett and salvation in the parking lot

I’ve written about Jimmy Buffett before. People love his music because he offers a chance at Salvation. The salvation is a life without work and fun, sand, sun, water and margaritas. At least that is what we think. If you go to one of his concerts, that is what you get. Good music and camaraderie with other like-minded parrots heads is the main serving at a concert. This year I turned the concert experience up a notch. I’m a big Buffett fan. I have been to more than ten concerts. They were all great events with lots of fun for… Read the rest
