    Things that make you go.......hummm

    So, we've all met disgruntled employees, has anyone ever met a gruntled one??? Greetings and salutations all! I'm new to the Cyburbia site and just thought I'd 'hi'. I'm a planner for a small city in southwestern Washington state who just relocated from the sunshine (hurricane) state to avoid those killer storms and the oppressive heat for more temperate climate. I can't wait to get my 25 posts!!! Chow....

    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.

    Welcome from a former resident of Richland, WA now residing, oh, about 800 miles or so South of there. BTW: you really don't want me to go "hummmmm". I can't carry a tune in a bucket. You would really regret that.



    MZ, gruntled as usual.

    Smart man.... moving to the wilds of the western Washington to avoid becoming gull snacks. Why didn't you decide Kansas?

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

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

    What part of NW Florida, RJ? I went to UWF in P'cola from Clearwater for my undergrad degree and NW Florida holds a special place in my heart. How are you doing in the wake of the storms?

    Welcome from NW Ohio. Moving to Washington state means you will miss all of those mountains, valleys, and cold trout-filled streams of Florida.

    Just remember, NW Ohio's Toledo is bigger than yours.

    But wait a few years, it will even-up.

    Enjoy Cyburbia !!!

    Hello from a Houston evacuee, currently in Richardson, heading back to Houston tomorrow, then moving to Irving 5 days later!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
