Subject: Ace Hardware in Siler City

    I don't usually complain about a local business, but I had a really disturbing experience at Ace Hardware in Siler City last Friday.
    I went into the store looking for paint buckets.  The clerk was very busy talking to someone there, and every few words were curse words.
    Now, I've used bad words before, but a business should demand better from the people that work there.  For all I know, he was the owner.
     I got my buckets and was getting ready to pay for them, when such a rash of cuss words came out of his mouth, that I just left them there and walked out.
     Has anyone else had a similar experience?  This was not a young person, but a man probably at least 65 years old.  If he was the owner, I'd like to know how many customers have been run off by his offensive language.
     Thanks for the venting time,

Subject: Positive Thinking & Meditation

Greetings everyone! <BR><BR>I have finally set the date for Meditation 1 Course here at Pittsboro <BR>School of Yoga. <BR>The course dates and times are as follows: Monday April 30 at <BR>6.15pm-7.30pm. The class will meet for 4 consecutive weeks at the same <BR>time each week. <BR><BR>Each week we will talk about topics such as Positive Thinking as an <BR>aid for meditation, mechanics of the mind, obstacles to meditation, <BR>nature of thought, how to develop a daily practise and why, benefits <BR>of meditation, meditation and the subconscious mind, concentration <BR>practices, 8 limbs of ashtanga yoga, keeping a spiritual diary and <BR>more. <BR><BR>Each class will consist of 45 minutes theory and discussion followed <BR>by 30 minute silent seated meditation. Please bring your own cushion. <BR>I am extremely enthused and excited to beging this course and look <BR>foward to seeing many of you here! <BR>Pre-registration is required, tuition is $60 and can be mailed or <BR>dropped off in person. <BR><BR>Meditation (Dhyana) <BR><BR><BR><BR>Positive Thinking & Meditation constitute one of the 5 fundamental <BR>points of Yoga as taught by Swami Vishnu-devananda founder/Sivananda <BR>Yoga Vedanta Centers. <BR>When the surface of a lake is still, one can see to the bottom very <BR>clearly. This is impossible when the surface is agitated by waves. In <BR>the same way, when the mind is still, with no thoughts or desires, you <BR>can see the "Self" this is called "Yoga". <BR><BR>We can control the mental agitation by two means: by concentrating the <BR>mind either externally or internally. Internally, we focus on the <BR>"Self" or the consciousness of "I am". Externally, we focus on <BR>anything other than the "Self" or "I am". <BR><BR>When we take up some recreation on putting the ball into the hole <BR>(golf), the other thoughts are slowed down or stilled. We feel we have <BR>played a good game when we have achieved perfect concentration. The <BR>happiness we experience comes, not because the ball being put in the <BR>hole eighteen times, but because we have achieved perfect <BR>concentration eighteen times. At that time, all the worries and <BR>problems of the world disappeared. <BR><BR>The mental ability to concentrate is inherent to all; it is not <BR>extraordinary or mysterious. Meditation is not something that a Yogi <BR>has to teach you; you already have the ability to shut out thoughts. <BR><BR>The only difference between this and meditation (the positive way), is <BR>that generally we have learned to focus the mind externally on <BR>objects. When the mind is fully concentrated, time passes unnoticed, <BR>as if it did not exist.
When the mind is focused, there is no time! <BR>Time is nothing but a modification of the mind. Time, Space, and <BR>causation and all external experiences are mental creation. <BR><BR>All happiness achieved through the mind is temporary and fleeting; it <BR>is limited by nature. To achieve that state of lasting happiness and <BR>absolute peace, we must first know how to calm the mind, to <BR>concentrate and go beyond the mind. By turning the mind's <BR>concentration inward, upon the self, we can deepen that experience of <BR>perfect concentration. This is the state of Meditation". </TT></P> <P><TT><A xhref=""><

The trail head for The Tobacco Trail in Chatham is just off of 751 about a mile south of 64.  It is on the east side of the road and is very well marked.  The gate and bathrooms open at 8:00am, but there is parking for about 10 cars outside the gate if you are an early riser.

Subject: Framing things

I would have used a better subject line, but it's the best I can think of at the moment...

Could one or more of you gracious artistic types that reside in our fair county help me find a good framer?  I have a high school diploma and a school newspaper that is circa 1930.  They are my Grandmother's diploma and her school newspaper, both from a school that no longer exists.  I want to find someone who is phenomenal at framing things like this in a way that looks attractive, but most importantly will preserve them.  
Obviously I have reservations about taking it to Michaels or somewhere like that.

So, with that thought in mind, I thought I would turn to the myriad painters and photographers and other artists in the area in hopes that you could provide leads to reputable framers who could create a shadowbox or other such display for these things that will protect them as best as can be done (without building somehing akin to what the U. S.
Constitution is framed in) and then hung on my wall next to some other things I have from that bygone era and my family's farm.
