I just wanted to let everyone know that one of Clyde’s neighbors brought Clyde by and picked up the logs.  I got a great response from my note to the chatlist.  About 10 people offered to help.  Neighbors willing to help neighbors is what will keep a community strong through rough times.

Thanks again, everyone.

Business introduction

My name is Kendrick Harvey. I am a carpenter. I live in Bynum and run a small business. I am not a salesman. I don’t talk people into things they don’t need. In fact I often talk myself out of work because something is unrealistic or too expensive.

Pumpkins Needed for Bynum’s Pedestrian Bridge Halloween Eve

Pumpkins on Bynum’s Pedestrian Bridge Halloween Eve.
Soon it will be time for the pumpkins to be bought so that Jan Berger and crew can do their magic carving and then set the pumpkins on the Bynum bridge for all to come and admire over the waters of the Haw. Jan would like to ask….if anyone knows where pumpkins can be purchased for $3 or less, please call him.  This is a volunteer Chatham community event.  He’s hoping to purchase around 60+ pumpkins for a low low cost.

Would liberals welcome pro-Bush lyrics?

Subject: Entertainment at Bynum

I was very entertained by the responses to the conservative gentleman who felt awkward (and maybe out of place) at hearing anti-Bush/War lyrics at the Bynum Store entertainment.  Seems that everyone responding was very cordial and understanding and welcoming to him and his views.  They welcome everyone and their opinions because, as liberals, they are diverse and inclusive.

If he had heard a group insert a pro-Bush lyric, I feel sure he would have really heard what an understanding group they really are.

Chatham County cool places

Subject: Chatham County cool places

I would like to echo the recent post about PC’s Cool Place. It is a great place for a meal or just ice cream. A good friend took me there recently and we had a great time. My son’s were treated like royalty. Any place that calls me darlin and takes care of my kids is on my list. Next time you are in Siler City, go check out this little gem. It is not that far off the path, just blocks from downtown.  Tell them Darlin’ sent you.

Ahhhhhh, Chatham

Subject: ahhhhhh, Chatham

The banter back and forth regarding Morrie’s comments about Bynum Friday Nights warms my heart.

I lived in Chapel Hill for most of my adult life  and my relatives for generations and generations.  I moved to Pittsboro 2  years ago…and just one of the major benefits was being enveloped by all these “liberal” people.

The whole idea of live and let live is something we all  need to embrace.  In my “Liberal” opinion, conservatism equals closed minds  equals hatred.  War certainly does not equal love.  Long live the  Liberals!

Freedom of speech

August 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Date: Mon, 11 Aug 2008 17:30:45 EDT
From: Ed Williams
Subject: Freedom of speech

In Chatlist 3194, Angel Dennison, talking about a sporting event at Northwood, says “I was witness to the worst racial anti-hispanic rant I have EVER heard”. Angel, you should tell the moms who made that rant to go to an event at the Bynum General store. Morrie said (#3193) she was disturbed by a singer there, who, at the end of the evening, was singing a spitritual and suddenly turned it into a left-wing political chant. But we are told that, at Bynum, all points of view are welcomed.
