Fresh Artesian Spring Water in Chatham County, NC

Chatham Chatlist Highlights - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 12:53

Subject: Fresh Artesian Spring Water

Hi, I am Tom Hildebrand. I own a business located in the center of Chatham County, www.happyhillspringwater.com, that delivers fresh natural spring water to its shareholders at different drop off locations in Chatham (Angelinas Kitchen in Pittsboro and Timothy Scheetz,DDS Dental Office in Siler City ) and Orange Counties. It is set up similar to a CSA program(Community Supported Agriculture) where the number of shares that you own determines the amount of water you receive each week. Everyone must own a share in the spring to receive water from it.

The cost of the share is 100% refundable should you leave the area or decide that you no longer wish to drink fresh spring water. After you purchase your share(s), you pay a stewards fee each month to http://www.happyhillspringwater.com/index.html to maintain the spring and deliver the water to the designated drop off location.

For complete details, call 919-742-3379 or go to http://www.happyhillspringwater.com/index.html. There is probably nothing more important for your health than to drink fresh spring water. Thanks for reading and thanks to Gene for the opportunity. tom

It may be cold outside but it will be warm inside!

Don’t miss WRAL-TV’s Amanda Lamb at Chatham Community Library this Wednesday evening, November 19th at 7pm.

Amanda Lamb has been a crime reporter at WRAL-TV since 1994. In her more than twenty years as a professional journalist, Amanda has developed a reputation as the go-to reporter for networks seeking credible feedback and interviews on murder cases garnering national attention in the Southeast. She has penned three books about murder cases she has covered for WRAL, which include “Love Lies” (Nancy Cooper), “Evil Next Door” (Stephanie Bennett), and “Deadly Dose” (Eric Miller). Her books have been the subject of dozens of national crime magazine programs including 48 Hours, Forensic Files and Discovery Investigates.

As a mother of two daughters, Amanda has also written three touching, humorous memoirs about parenting including “I Love You to God and Back,” “Girls Gone Child,” and “Smotherhood.” Her collections of funny, self-deprecating, tender essays take the reader on an insightful journey into the complexities of raising children in the twenty-first century. She also writes a blog about parenting every Monday called “Go Ask Mom” on WRAL.com.

Her newest project is a memoir titled “The Living Room,” which documents the eighty days she spent caring for her mother who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012. The book is a moving, inspirational tribute about the transforming power of caregiving and how we can all learn more about how to live from facing death.

Amanda will talk about her true crime books, being a TV reporter, and answer questions. Books will be available for purchase and signing afterwards. This event is Free and open to the public.

Subject: RE: Gas fireplace help needed

I recommend Birmingham’s Mechanical Service (919) 933-0946 or (919) 606-1184. Two years ago I was having problems with my gas logs and posted a call for help on the Chat List. Birmingham’s answered my call for help. I made an appt. with them, they came out on time, checked out the problem, came up with a solution, completed the work and cleaned up their work area. The charge was very reasonable and I have had no more problems with my gas logs. I would use them again if needed.

hello, I’d like to introduce myself. Greg Jones, carpenter/builder. I’ve been a hickory mountain area chatham resident for about 20 years now. 3 different addresses in that time but the same 2 miles radius. 17 years at this one. Amazing the amount of clutter can be accumulated in that time eh? I do room additions, free standing buildings, renovations and repairs to buildings. I’ve been a professional working carpenter since my 20s. I’m happy to consult, refer and build for my fellow chatham neighbors and friends. Feel free to contact me at 919-448-7237 or via e-mail greg6L@aol.com thanks, have a great day!


Business introduction: Janet Resnik Pottery

Chatham Chatlist Highlights - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 08:51

From: Mike Resnik
Subject: Business introduction: Janet Resnik Pottery

Janet Resnik Pottery
132 Collins Mountain Road (north of Frosty’s)
Chapel Hill, NC 27516

Janet Resnik Pottery produces and sells functional stoneware pottery designed and priced for everyday use. Janet’s work reflects the Chatham County Farm where her combined studio and gallery is located. Surrounded by trees and flowers, donkeys, horses, cats, dogs and guineas, it is no wonder that her plates, mugs, bowls, pitchers and platters feature impressionistic landscape, animal, iris and Christmas designs.

The pottery is either “thrown” on a potter’s wheel or rolled and formed using a slab roller. Janet does all the wheel throwing; her assistants, including husband Mike, use the slab roller. Janet also does all the decorating (glazing).

After the pottery is formed it is allowed to dry before being fired the first time in a low temperature electric kiln. The resulting bisque ware is glazed and then fired a second time to a much higher temperature in order to bond molecularly the glazing material to the clay. Janet does most of the glaze firing in an electric kiln, but uses a gas kiln for certain glazes.

People from all walks of life buy and love Janet’s pottery. And they are grateful for her reasonable prices: a spoon rest cost $5, a dinner plate $24, and a bird bath or large bowl $65. The pottery is lead free, dishwasher safe and can be used for baking if started in a cold oven. You may view the pottery on the Website–www.
janetresnikpottery.com–but you cannot buy it online.

The Pottery is open every Wednesday and Sunday from 3-6 PM year round. During these times (as well as during “kiln openings” and the Chatham County Studio Tour) the marked prices are discounted (20% for cash, 15% for checks). The Pottery does not take debit or credit cards and does not ship orders. You may also purchase by appointment at other times, but only at the full prices.

The Pottery will also be open both weekends of the Chatham County Studio Tour.
