    A new member from Australia

    Hi everyone, I discovered this forum recently and have found it to be very interesting, hence I have now joined . I am an Australian Urban Planner - I finished Uni only months ago in Oct '11, and luckily secured a full time graduate urban planning position almost immediately. I look forward to continue my lurking for a while until I actually know what I am talking about!

    Cheers, JS

    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

    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!'"

    Welcome from the Great State of Ohio! Glad to have you! We welcome anyone from the fair city of Adelaide. If Ben Folds can write a song about you, you are good enough for me.
