    Hello. Long time voyeur... 1st time joiner

    Bertrand here. I've visited Cyburbia off and on for several years and have finally taken the plunge to join. I reside in the Midwest, but long for the coast.

    Welcome to Cyburbia, Bertrand! Glad you decided to join us! May you have fun here and stick around; although your introduction thread hasn't picked up much traffic yet, but due to the late night hours, it's quite evident.

    Welcome from the Midwest -- Wisconsin. Just waiting for the snow to fly. God I love winter.

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!

    We've got coastline.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Welcome from the Hill Country of Texas!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Welcome from west of Gedunker, still in the Hoosier State and along the Ohio River.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Perhaps you mean lurker instead of voyeur.

    Actually I do mean voyeur. French, from Old French, one who lies in wait, from voir, to see.
    It's not so much the coasts (I'm a land lover) it's the Blue States I long for. They tend to be on the coasts.

    Welcome from sorta near the coast (Solano County, California). I'm an ex-Midwesterner myself (Fort Wayne, Indiana). We'd be happy to have you once you've won the lottery prize needed to buy that un-updated $400,000 1972 ranch house.

    Welcome from the land of hot air and fake smiles-Washington DC.
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    A belated welcome from the upper Hudson River valley of New York state.
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.
