Joel Evans ~ Quaker, Mayor of Waynesville, County Surveyor and Carpenter and Builder


January 23, 1816 ~ September 17, 1907

Joel Evans had a good reputation for being a very intelligent man. Daniel R. Anderson tells the following story about Joel Evans and some of his friends in Waynesville:

"A coterie of wits, E. Baily, Arnold Boone, Neddy Lynch, Sam Rogers, Sr., David Evans, Sr., Joel Evans, Geo. W. Brown, Elton Dudley, ~~ that lot; and another regular was my father, Dr. Wm. H. Anderson, were member of a club that made a rookery of the store house of Hadden & McClelland, and the way they did "rook", oh, my! An open debate on any live subject, interspersed with well-told stories, filled out the long evenings till closing time.

I was always interested in that "gang" because it was as good as a moving picture show is to me now. My father had a sense of the eternal fitness of things ~ and boys were not eligible ~ so when I wasn't busy playing "Welly," with the other "kids" of the town, I would sneak into the store, and slip behind a large table that was piled high with goods and "stop, look and listen!" They were always great on conundrums, only one of which will I record.

Geo. Brown was late, and some one had propounded to those present, "what is the worst kind of 'bat' that flies after night?" Joel Evans answered, "A brick bat." About that time Geo. Brown drifted in and immediately Joel put the new one on him in this wise, "George, what is the worst kind of 'brick bats,' that fly after night?" George was silent for only a little while, and with a funny little grin said, "I don't know unless it is hard ones," and the laugh was on Joel.

Joel Evans was a man of superior intelligence, and vast information on most any subject, and I have put a question to him, and he would look at me and pass on and never open his head. Perhaps I would meet him again in a week or so, and without any preliminary he would answer that question as though he was just asked about it. That was his way! If he didn't know, he would find out; being sure that you wanted the information, or would not have asked him.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Dancer, soldier, personal trainer or Italian plumber, you just never know what you could become once you enter the realm of video games. You could find yourself flying a plane or jet skiing clear blue oceans, but you should have some tricks in your arsenal, and the following article will offer those.

Think about letting your kids computer game on consoles instead of on computers. A computer is usually connected to the Internet, which can put your children at risk for having problems with others online and viewing materials that they are not ready for. A games system offers a more protected environment for their computer game experience.

If you want to sell your games on the Internet, you have to describe them in as much detail as possible. This description should include what type of condition the game is in and how it plays. Anyone who purchases this from you would like to be aware of these important details. By making your description as detailed as possible, you are increasing the odds that you'll sell your game.

Limit cheat codes for games requiring skill to play. This is something that you will want to avoid, as it defeats the purpose of the game itself. Some cheats can ruin your whole game but sports related codes are the exception - they enhance the experience.

It is important to take breaks and avoid excessive computer game playing. It's fairly easy to get addicted to a particular game, and this isn't healthy so you must get away from it every once in a while. Gaming is meant to be an enjoyable experience. Should you feel that addiction is an issue, speak to a medical professional about help.

Before allowing your child to use a gaming console online, be sure that you have set it to "family friendly" options. This will filter out inappropriate content so your child will not be exposed to it. You can also determine how much they can chat with others while online.

Never clean your system, no matter the age, with strong cleaners. Lightly blowing can help to remove dust, and this is often all it takes to get things up and running. You can destroy your console if you use harsh chemicals on it.

If you are buying a new gaming system, make sure that everything works after you purchase it. Even if you're not going to use every accessory for it, check the various ports to see if they're in working condition. If you discover a problem months after your purchase, such as a broken headphone jack, you won't be able to exchange the xbox for a new one.

The cost of a game is an important part of your purchase decision. Just because a game is expensive, doesn't necessarily mean it's the best one for you. Read game descriptions carefully to help you make a solid game buying decision. In addition, you should check out online reviews. Avoid buying something when you have doubts or not completely sure about it.

It can be tempting to go all out buying expansion packs, add-ons and upgrades for your new game. This can get very pricey! Instead, be disciplined with your spending. Check out what you've got in the game you bought and only add on what you can afford.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Enjoy your gaming more after having read this article. Online Games help us escape our boring everyday lives, which we all need from time to time. Game on!

Gaming has truly become a hobby for anyone with interests that run the full gamut. Video Games are a great way to just have some fun and relax once in awhile. The following paragraphs have some really good ideas regarding video games, so pay attention!

Turn off chatting capabilities on games for kids that are young. You should not expose your young kids to these types of communications. If the game won't let you disable chat, don't buy it. If you can't figure it out, search online for more information or talk to the people in the store.

Are your kids' games age appropriate? This means you're going to need to look at the warnings on the backs of the games to figure out if they're a good fit for your kids. There are many games that actually promote violence; these you may need to steer clear of.

You are able to get your rest when you die! If you have used this statement before to justify your game playing, you are not alone as many believe it to be true. However, this is false! Make sure you get a good eight hours snooze time in each night, to be ready and able to strategize yourself to the next level!

When you save your game, do more than just saving it on the same slot. Every now and then, save it in another one. You may find in the future that you would like to resume your game from a different point. However, you will be unable to do so if your games have all been saved in a single place.

It can be helpful to play a trial version of a game you are unsure about purchasing. These online game trials are extremely helpful in helping you determine if you want to spend your hard earned cash on a game. If you the trial of a certain game, try buying the full version.

Keep your children safe in terms of online gaming. Pay attention to the people they play with. Some people use online gaming in order to manipulate young children. It is important to protect kids when they are gaming online by being aware of whom they are playing with.

If you're looking at purchasing a new video game, you can reserve it before it actually comes out. It is often the case that an extra feature or bonus is given to those who get in early on reserving a copy. These bonuses can give you an edge in the game, cool outfits, and unique features that are only available when purchased before release.

Make use of subtitles. Looking for a way to hear the dialogue much better due to the overwhelming noise of those loud games? Subtitles fix that problem. Look for audio settings in the options menu. If you look carefully through the menu, you should be able to locate the subtitles feature.

It can be tempting to go all out buying expansion packs, add-ons and upgrades for your new game. This can get very pricey! Instead, be disciplined with your spending. Check out what you've got in the game you bought and only add on what you can afford.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Video games are definitely here to stay. It's a great hobby and can keep your family and you entertained. If gaming sounds like something fun and interesting to you, then heed the advice you learned here, and use it whenever you take up this hobby.
