    Welcome from Edmonton... but I'm not really from here, I'm a Los Angeles native. I moved here just in time for the prosperity.

    There are several other members here, even some from B.C.

    Welcome from the North shore of the Ohio River at mile marker 792.5.

    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)

    Hello from Irving, TX!
    "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

    Welcome from northwestern Oregon!

    Northboy and abrowne come to mind as fellow B.C. denizens on Cyburbia.

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!

    I'm north of where my car is parked.
    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 a couple clicks southwest of 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!'"

    I'm from Northern COLORADO. Good to have you. I love the Whistler area. I also love the Kootenay Lake/ Nelson area too...

    I think I love BC, because Vancouver was wicked fun.


    While your here, stay away from the Tuna... it went bad looooong ago.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
