BYH, some see the glass as half empty. I say just get a smaller glass and quit complaining....

Feb. 15 Bless Your Heart

Yesterday — Valentine’s Day —  was the day I have been married 69 years to the most wonderful woman in the world. I never regret ever saying “I do” and she won’t ever let me forget that. Thank you. Love you all.

Bless your heart to the person complaining about people not driving the speed limit and then letting us know he drives 70 in 75 zone. Here's a thought — drive the speed limit!

While I applaud those trying to save the Jones-Lee house, where were they when dozens of other old homes around downtown and the university were torn down in the past? Evans Street was lined with stately homes that were torn down in the name of progress. I don't recall a lot of opposition from the public at that time. Why now?

Bless your heart, City of Greenville about the Jones-Lee house. This is a beautiful Victorian home. Greenville needs to take a lesson from cities like Tarboro and Washington and New Bern about saving history and not tearing it down. Please consider preserving this before you tear down everything historic in Greenville.

BYH I certainly don’t think God put Trump in as a punishment to our country but instead to save it. The hate and confusion came after Americans elected a non-politician and the professional politicians on the losing side went ballistic with hatred for him.

Bless your heart to the people complaining about the county not wanting to be on the public-private economic partnership. Why should the county pay 90 percent of the bills and have everyone else decide what to do with the money? We all know the city loves to waste money.

To the Prius owner who flew past me doing at least 85 mph on my way to Raleigh: Instead of using token gestures to signal other people who have the same view, consider working toward converting all trucks to natural gas as an intermediate step toward hydrogen fuel. That will have an immediate, and large impact on our environment without destroying the middle class with the cost of all wind and solar. Think of it as a two-fer.

Bless your heart, I’d rather live next door to a loving immigrant family, with or without documents, than a white supremacist.

They do not buy Valentine’s Day chocolate along the Brook Valley Shortcut. They make their own! Now if that ain't high class, I don't know what is.

BYH, Negative Nellies. I don’t have anything at stake, but would like to contribute. Take a gander at the Greenville crime map over the last 90 days. There are little or no crimes being committed on our greenways. And I second the commenter who correctly points to increased property values on greenways

BYH, I think it is just wrong that only one company sells the game Monopoly.
