Welcome
from the north shore of the Ohio River, east of the Wabash River in the Central Time Zone.

Started out in Landscape Architecture then switched to Geography.

:-\ Watch out I suspect
that there might be some who would say that they have some scotch in their blood ;-)

Welcome :)

P.S. Things may be a bit slow around here this week as quite a few people are at the national APA conference in D.C.

Greetings from south central Indiana, along the north shore of the Ohio River, where unlike JNA we illegally practice Eastern Daylight Saving Time. Right now we are about 128 hours from "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports".

So, tell us little more about yourself. Are you a practicing planner?

If it's not Scottish, it's CRAP!

Seriously welcome from sunny central Texas! I'm proud to say that I can trace my roots back to Clan Buchanan.

Welcome, from a really "dilluted" member of whatever clan Thompson is part of (in central New York State, USA)!

Welcome to the Throbbing Brain. For the sake of updating the Cyburbia Map, where does the dot go?

Welcome Wee Jimmy ( or is it Wee Jock) from a descendant of a failed Scotsman who was sent to Australia as punishment and is longing to hear another accent to overwhelm these nefarious, upstart yanks who pervade this yet to be dominion of Australia. :-D

Well, not sure I qualify - a) I'm not a practicing planner and b) I really don't have a clue to which sporting event your talking about - tiddleywinks?

I am infact a chartered Landscape Architect who's worked for a year in Philadelphia which was great (bit hot for a Scot though!) and since then in Belfast, Northern Ireland mostly on city centre and inner city regeneration projects. As you're from Indiana I should divulge to you that I spent a semester at Purdue in 1997 and know all about midwestern hospitality (+ car orientated design - "where's the sidewalk?")

I'm now doing a years masters in Urban Design and am about to dip my toes into the job market once again (this side of the pond - incase there are any employers out there!) So I suppose the pin on the map goes on Oxford, but don't push it in too far in because it'll be coming out again in September!

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

Well, that would be the 130th consecutive running of the Kentucky Derby -- the Sport of Kings. We take a two-minute horse race and turn it into a two-week long festival.

Glad to see you had the good sense to get away from Purdue as quickly as you did. I earned my masters degree from Ball State in '89.
