I am as skeptical as you are, but I'm here patiently waiting for someone to ask if I have something reusable to sell or if someone needs a helping hand to repair or assemble a new product at their place. I'm a certified auto restorer and know a lot about handyman work. My rates are very reasonable.  S...

NOTICE: Cancellation of right to use my “Egg Puffo” recipe

Chatham Chatlist Highlights - Tue, 10/21/2014 - 07:28

From: “N.A. Booko”
Subject: NOTICE: Cancellation of right to use my “Egg Puffo” recipe

A little over a year ago, I published on the Chatlist, my original recipe for making “Egg Puffo!”- A delightful new way to easily prepare eggs at would give a life to breakfast, brunch, lunch or an evening meal. And it was so simple. So delicious. Several emailed me saying they had tried it and it was sooooo good! I am no longer allowing it to be prepared. Forget you ever enjoyed it.

The sad fact of the matter is- When I released that innovative recipe, I thought it would catapult me into an orbit of some type of fame and maybe a book deal or a regular on air program. I could not have been wronger. Now I find that someone has taken my recipe and simply changed the name to “Egg Puff-a-lo” and gathering all the laurels, the book deals and any other fame and fortune that comes along with it- and to make it worse, they don’t even live in Chatham County-

I guess the laugh and the yoke is on me . . . they can just kiss my grits . . .

Voting – or Not Voting – Has Consequences

*Voting or Not Voting Has Consequences.*

Do you like the “consequences” of our past elections?

Bock, Stewart, and Petty run on a platform of â”Common Sense” government. By that they mean abandonment of the responsibilities of good governance for the community of citizens in Chatham County. To hold to their theoretical beliefs they refused to maintain the normal cycle of property evaluation for taxing purposes. They say that they did not raise taxes – knowing full well that they will be required by law to do it after the election. Taxes provide citizen services. Voting – or Not Voting – Has Consequences.

They talk about the rights of private property. But they do not sort out through good governance which person will have these “rights†within our community of citizens. Thus in one example a “private property rights†person bought land for a gun range and put the “private property rights†of a multitude of his neighbors at risk from all the loud noise. The gun range owner will damage by thousands of dollars the property value of other citizens. Is this “Common Sense†government? You might ask, WHOSE common sense?

Voting – or Not Voting – Has Consequences.

Do your homework. Don’t be tricked by slick misdirection.

Each one of us is personally experiencing multiple consequences.

There are many more examples…

Do you like the consequences of our past elections?

Jim Crawford, Diana Hales, and Karen Howard provide a breath of fresh air!

My son never heard swearing in classrooms until 9th grade

Subject: I’m late to the table on this discussion

I’m sorry I’m late to the table on this discussion. I know it’s about Charter Schools. My children moved here June 2001 I heard the school elementary middle sucked. I applied kids got in ASAP.

THANK GOD. HORTON PITTSBORO ELEMENTARY ARE AWFUL I heard. TEACHERS DON’T TEACH. TOO MANY KIDs. CHAOS.

NORTHWOOD IS GOOD. PERRY HARRISON NORTH CHATHAM ARE GREAT. THEY DESTROYED THOSE.

THE K-8 MODEL IN ONE SCHOOL IS THE CRUX, I FEEL.

EXAMPLE: MY SON NEVER HEARD SWEARING IN CLASSROOMS UNTIL 9TH GRADE. HE COME HOME From Northwood. said: “Mom kids use bad language right in class”. He wasn’t isolated.He played sports.4H. He didn’t go to a school were teachers administrators don’t have High Expectations.

My daughter is in DC. GWU.

All on her own first year of college.

She was Math prepared due to wonderful exceptional teachers who had expectations for their students their work place and students. My daughter returned to her own 8Th grade Math teacher for some HS geometry help.

Praise the Lord for Dale Bunch, Eta Foushee, The Principals and the school.

An old fashioned moral driven educational expectations Family of People who care school.

My experience.
