Subject: I just love North Carolina  (Pittsboro)

I have been here almost 5 years and from the moment we arrived I  could not
get over the friendliness of the people here...and the beautiful trees  and
the wonderful weather...yes, there is humidity a couple months out of the  
year...and I love that too...I think I am part lizard...(smile)...I came
from  Monterey Ca. and have not missed anything about the state or the
town...the  traffic in that state ..OH MY Goodness!!!...and everyone in a hurry ...
and so  unfriendly and unkind...lived all over Ca for 30years... I have not
found ONE  thing I do not love about this state...(well maybe the ticks)
hahahahaha...the  triangle area is so progressive ....even little Pittsboro
with all the history  and co-op and Angelinas Kitchen and the cute little down
town shopping ...the  circle in the middle of town...I love that I can walk
for miles all over town  with my two little dogs at 5 in the morning with no
fear.. and to have fresh air  to breath and the most beautiful cool
mornings no matter how warm it gets...and  most of all I am so glad we have such a
wonderful tool like this chatlist to  help one another to find our lost
animals and to give each other a helping hand  in finding different services
available...I hope I never get so comfortable that  I forget how very blessed I
am to be in this Southern Part of  Heaven...(smile)..that's what I think
Pittsboro is... I just had to take a  moment to brag...(smile)
Linda in Chatham Forest...Thanks Gene for all your hard work

Subject: Pittsboro's Community House

Last week at the Wake-Up Wednesday community breakfast, I saw for the
first time the beautiful upgrades that have occurred thus far at
Pittsboro's Community House. It's looking terrific! The wider exterior
stairs are much more inviting and the sensitivity that's been shown in
the selection of the lighting and fan fixtures both outside and in is
perfect. What a great jump start for this local architectural gem!
When times are as tough as they are now, it is particularly uplifting
to see care being shown to our town's historic structures --especially
when it's done through grant funds, as this was. Thanks to all the
town staff, citizen volunteers and local artisans who had a hand in
bringing these improvements to reality.
For those who don't know about the Community House, it is a historic
stone structure at 65 Thompson Street a couple of doors east of
Elizabeth's Pizza built in the 1930s. It is managed by the Town of
Pittsboro @ 919-542-4621 and is available to rent for meetings,
receptions, parties, classes, and workshops.

Subject: Get Your Tickets Now for Mike Wiley's Performance of Blood Done Sign My Name

Get your tickets now for a night/afternoon of compelling,
thought-provoking, educational theater!  Mike Wiley's performance of
Blood Done Sign My Name is coming to the Fearrington Barn in only a few
short weeks and this is one show not to be missed.  Mr., Wiley is an
amazing storyteller. Tell your friends!  Bring your (13 years or older)

Fearrington is pleased to present Mike Wiley's performance of Blood Done
Sign My Name, the acclaimed memoir by Tim Tyson,  in The Fearrington
Barn on Saturday and Sunday, July 11th and 12th, 2009.  A gifted
playwright and actor, Wiley expands cultural awareness for audiences of
all ages through his dynamic portrayals based on pivotal moments in
African-American history. Blood Done Sign My Name tells the story of the
violent reprisals following the acquittal of three men for the murder of
Henry "Dickie" Marrow in Oxford, North Carolina. This compelling
production acknowledges America's painful racial history, "that our
freedom and dignity, if we still have any, has been paid for in blood,
that we have a contract with our ancestors not to let their sacrifices
be in vain."  

The production is offered as part of Chatham County's Community Read
program, featuring Tyson's Blood Done Sign My Name as one of the 2009
selections.  For information about the Community Read program, visit:      

July 11th, 7pm, $12 with a post-performance reception and question &
answer session with Mike Wiley

July 12th, 2pm $12 adults/$6 students with valid student ID, Includes a
post-performance question and answer session with Mike Wiley.

Tickets available for in-person sale at McIntyre's Books in Fearrington
Village, or online at

On July 11th,  come to a special pre-show dinner at the Old Granary
Restaurant.  With seating available beginning at 5pm, you'll have plenty
of time to enjoy the casual a la carte menu before heading over to the
Barn for the main event! Call (919) 542-2121 for reservations.

Subject: Fw: A Bright Future

I've tried to keep myself from joining the Chatlist discussion about the driving habits of our learned citizens,  but can no longer do so.

I had a very successful turn signal repair business "up north" and then decided to move my business to North Carolina.  This was definitely a mistake.  For some reason, turn signals never seem to need repairing in this state.  I can't understand why.

Not willing to give up, I think I'm onto something that will provide me a decent living: a contract to repaint the solid yellow center line in the curves on every road in the state.  For some reason the paint seems to get a lot of wear especially where the road curves to the left.

I am also submitting a proposal to the NCDOT to replace the yellow lenses on all traffic signal lights with a green lens to better reflect the customary purpose of that light.  At the same time I'm seeking a contract to add the word "SUGGESTED" to each speed limit sign.

In these troubled times I see a bright financial future for my family.
