    Greetings from the San Joaquin Valley of CA

    After a lifelong fascination with the evolution of cities, I finally went back to school and finished those last couple of semesters required for my B.A. in geography (took a some years off to raise my family). Not sure what the future holds for me in this field. Can I get a job? (What do I want to be when I grow up/Iím 48) Should I get a graduate degree? Should I convert my obsession into a working hobby? All questions Iíll answer eventually but in the meantime, I thought I could come here and continue my practical education until I figure out what path to take. Thanks for letting a newbie like me come in and hang out with the big boys and girls!

    Welcome from an old-fart with roots in northern California that transplanted to the Florida panhandle. Anything can happen. Trust me.


    I have a sore toe. The one to the right of my big right toe. I hurts. It's bleeding. Not that you give a damn. Could somebody with a fetish kiss it for me?
    Annoyingly insensitive

    Welcome from another old fart with roots in CA, living in the Hoosier State along the Ohio River.

    Several of us have our undergrad degree in geography.

    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 Dallas, 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

    There can NEVER BE TOO MANY GEOGRAPHERS on this planet in my opinion.....
