    Greetings from the frigid Northeast

    I'm Josh. I graduate in May from SUNY College @ Buffalo (Buff State) with a BS in Urban and Regional Planning and minor in American History. I'm moving to Charlotte, NC in May, so if you know of someone who is hiring...

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!

    Dan will certainly be interested that you are from Buffalo and moving to Charlotte. His theories will continue to be supported.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    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)

    Aren't there about 15 different threads discussing the fact that everyone in Buffalo under the age of 35 is in the process of moving to Charlotte?
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    I know a planner who actually moved from Virginia to Buffalo... very much against the grain.

    Welcome from central FL!

    Hey, the mention of Buffalo reminds me of Rumpy who moved back to Buffalo from the FL panhandle. Anybody heard from him lately? (Maybe he's just too busy standing on a corner counting cars to sign on and post.... )

    Welcome ! You are in the new and exciting club of ex-Buffalo natives. I know about 5 people that moved down here (SUNY grads) to Georgia. You will enjoy the southeast. It is a great part of the country. I am a native New Englander myself. Now, I am just a carpet bagger.

    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
