    another midwesterner

    Been following the lively topics on this board for the last couple of months. Enjoying the topics especially those from Denver and about APM.

    Been in purgatory for seven years interning. Learned much about copy machines and GIS. Graduating from Milw this month, and moving to one of those Wisconsin towns. Looking forward to it.

    Anyway hoping to post more in the future. Hi to jtfortin.

    Welcome from a fellow cheesehead. If you interned with jtfortin in New Berlin I can add another Cyburbanite to those I have met!

    Hey, welcome!
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Speak for your self, buddy. I had to quit the upstate chapter conference planning committee because i was having too much in state contact conflicting with the whole sick as a dog pregnant lady schtick I have going on.

    But really, you're right. Where are all the NY planners?

    i didn't know you lurked here too markitect. yes, procrastination the true art of grad school.

    to the prudence post: left nb awhile back, and it felt good to gain new perspective. thanks, but still leaves me curious to know who you are...

    APM, i know APM, and although we didn't always see eye to eye he was a good person once you got past the sometimes crusty exterior.

    Hey GISGal - welcome aboard. Congrats on the new position. Look forward to keeping in touch.
