I think this has been done before, but I want to know where people are that frequent the board. It gives people a sense of connection, and helps the rest of us learn about areas we aren't familiar with, so state your location!

I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah

I live in Stafford, VA, 8 miles from Fredericksburg. Born and raised in WV down next to KY State line. I came out of the Hatfield/McCoy part of WV.
They only teach the "3 R's" in school down there. Reading, Righten and Route 81 north, so you can get out of there as soon as possible.

Currently in Menifee, California. Wishing we were in NW Washington, Grays Harbor County. We have about 10 acres up there that will be paid for by the end of the month (YIPPEE!!!!) Now, if we can just find jobs up there, we'd be on our way...

New Albany, MS. A few years ago(late 60's) a feller from our hometown named "Steamboat" Fulton appeared on the Johnny Carson show. Johnny asked him where New Albany was? Steamboat, witty as usual, said about 2 miles south of Punkin Center and 17 miles northeast of Dumas, Ms(small communities around home-not on map). Any way were 21miles west of Tupelo, MS and 92miles SoEast of Memphis, TN. By the way, Steamboat was on Johnny's show to play the whiskey bottles. He filled the bottles with colored water with varying amounts to produce different sounds. Made good music sounding like a xylaphone. Steamboat built this musical instrument-He died in the 80's. Don't know what became of his creation.

Hello Taylor! From 82 to 86 I went to NEMCC. There were several guys from up around your neck of the woods in Machine Shop and Tool&Die Tech with me. Also I worked at Parker-Hannifin with some Iuka folks-left there in 89 for a T&D job in NA.

Taylor Lambert    Posted 05-22-2003 at 00:13:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
I took Machine shop there. I rebuilt the ole CLearfield Jig borer in the back of setction of the shop. THey removed the big lathe at the back before i atteneded saw it one time on a feild trip there. I bet you were in the same Class as Stevie Lovelace and Patrick Bobo. Stevie teaches machine shop now and Mike snowden got moved to the tool and die side. I think Stevie and patrick both worked at Parker.

BadMoon    Posted 05-23-2003 at 01:40:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep, Stevie was after me, I had classes with his older brother David. I remember Bobo's name, but I can't put a face to him. Mr J T Cartright(you buncha Rooks-what he called us students) was T&D instructor. Mr James Glasgow, from Paden, had me 2 yrs in machine shop. Are u still in the Trade?

Taylor Lambert    Posted 05-23-2003 at 16:22:17       [Reply]  [No Email]

I was the one from Orlando...have moved to Chuckey, Tn. and am renting a nice little place. I got my baby chicks last week, 5 hens and a rooster. The wild ducks come now when I call them to get their bread. My "neighbors" in back of me are all steers and a mixed herd out front. Now if I can just get someone to till a garden, I already have the seeds. I LOVE THIS! :-)

We live in a glorified 100-yr-old log cabin on a peninsula between a river and lake (Shell River & Lower Twin lake) in central Minnesota about midway between Fargo & Duluth. In the picture you can see the lake dock across from the river dock. That squarish spot in the middle is the cabin. We get maybe 4 cars a day (one neighbor works) and hear mostly birds. Had a motel in town but got the heck back here :)

Hello Scott Hansen and everyone:

I live in Puerto Rico; the official name is
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

Population: 3,858,806 (2002 estimate)

Size: Approximately 100 by 35 miles (160 by 56 kilometers)

Right now I'm 'living' nowhere, so to speak. We own a house in Juncos, S/PR, and have been adding some new rooms but the project is stoped for now. I don't know for how long we'll be living in this rented house in Las Piedras, S/PR also; will have to move soon to San Juan, in the north.

So you see, we are sort of in a limbo.

I'm starting to feel a bit restless..

Take Care

Central PA, still wearing out the same old fields that we have worn out for the last 200+ years.

Tom A    Posted 05-19-2003 at 10:28:36       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Live on the last 20 acres of an old farm in Middletown, sort of west-central Maryland. I got the hilly stuff they couldn't build houses on! But the 100+ year old bank barn and the house are great.

We own a 45 acre horse farm in Monticello, Florida, which is about 20 minutes south of Thomasville Georgia. It's a great place to live, as it feels like you've gone back 40 or 50 years in time--very quiet and peaceful. We've been raising registered American Miniature Horses for about 18 years, and have a herd of 54 at present. For those who are interested, Miniature horses are are 34", and under. Although they can't carry too much weight, they are quite able to pull a cart carrying two adults with no trouble! We sell them to buyers from all over the United States, and even Puerto Rico! They are wonderful little guys, and make great little pets,as well as show horses, and driving horses!

Hello Judy

I'm not sure where Monticello is, but I'll check.

My son lives in Fernandina Beach and works in Amelia Island Plantation.

Do you ever come to Puerto Rico?

Alberta, Canada. The land of standard axle tractors.

HEY DAN! QUESTION FOR YOU!    Posted 05-19-2003 at 10:43:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
Sorry for yellin. Why do them folks up there only use them standard tractors? Southern Dummie

Dan    Posted 05-19-2003 at 19:30:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
You know, I'm not really sure, I think mainly the farming in western Canada is grain, cereal and feed crops. So the standard axle is better suited for the fields. Few if any commercial garden crops or crops with rows that require adjustable axles are around here. To tell you the truth, a tricycle or row crop is quite collectable here and are appreciated at the tractor shows.I hope some of this makes sense.

Hey Wapial! I am between Silverton and about 5 minutes from Scotts Mills. That makes us neighbors! Do tell more about the goings on in Brooks. I may have to get the nephew and stop by and see it all!
