I am an American married and living in Donegal, Ireland. Was working as a town planner in Connecticut, but my career was sidetracked by love, four children, and 600 sheep!

Now attending distance learing MA through University of West of England, Bristol to re-qualify. None of my qualifications, and very little of my experience are recognised here.

Working in private practice, chartered town planning and architectural firm in Derry, Northern Ireland. www.canavanassociates.com

Love my job and the hours are great! I am home in time for the children and do a lot at home.

Want to combine my skills/knowledge in town planning and ICT for my thesis, e-planning, e-government. Can anyone give me some leads?

Welcome to Cyburbia Samnteddy!

Things are a bit quiet around here right now - some of the more vocal folks are out at the APA conference in Denver right now. I'm sure someone out there has some answers to your questions.

Welcome aboard.

What kind of sheep do you have? The ones in my pictures are Jacobs, used to have suffolks also. Hope lambing went well for you.

On your planning related topics, I can't be of much help.

Welcome to Cyburbia! Dan is probably the guy to ask about e-planning (a true master of e-technology). Most of the rest of us are just Photoshop hacks.

Pardon the US east coasters. They are vile even by American standards (sorry east coasters).

Funny how we have managed to teach the UK everything they know for the past 50 years, and now they won't recognise our educational standards. JUST KIDDING!

Welcome to Cyburbia.
