What marine life offshore North Carolina can cause histaminic reaction?

My daughter felt something solid while swimming on a North Carolina beach this morning (July 25) and now has a raised welt about 2.5 x 4 cm with a somewhat larger reddish area around it. It is mildly painful. There are no visible foreign bodies, stingers, etc. What could it be? She doesn't seem to be having any severe symptoms that would require an emergency room visit.

Give me my money back

I moved out from a terrible landlord in North Carolina last June, and then because I was living in Chile with a postal strike/mail delays, the security deposit check had hit the 90 day void by the time it got to my bank. Now I'm back in the US and he won't give me my money back. [more inside]

Kid-Friendly Breakfast Spots & Activities in Charlotte, North Carolina

I am meeting up with some friends in Charlotte who have a long layover there Saturday morning. I live just a couple of hours away but have not spent much time there. Can you recommend a good breakfast spot and/or places we could hang out for a few hours that would occupy the kids (ages 7-9) and also give us adults some time to chat?

Help us plan a Southern road trip from Chicago!

We have 7-10 days for a road trip (leaving from Chicago in a couple days) and are thinking of exploring the South by car. Where should we stop, and what should we see? Thoughts we've had include driving towards Florida or Savannah and hitting Cattanooga, Asheville, Bowling Green, and/or Nashville. We will have one dog with us, so bonus points for State Parks or Forests where we can hike with her, but we'd like to see some towns or cities, too. Thank you, hive mind!

How can I let my parents drive/insure a car I own in North Carolina?

I'm trying to figure out a way to have a car that I own insured and driven primarily by my parents. I can't transfer the title, as there's still a lien and I will be making payments. However, my parents need a car urgently, so I need to get them to a good, insured state with a reliable automobile. Does anyone have experience with this?

I need helping identifying the era of this photograph.
