    jist my opinion!

    i feel that it would be nice if the forum could at least have the state from which the members are from in the profile, its part of the family thought process in my neck of the woods to know who and where we are from. its not like we are biddin against each other in auction we are tying to get the family atmosphere going here so lets see if we cant at least have the state in your profile i promise i wont send any bad press your way

    Your right Larry it would be nice to have some idea as to where someone is from. If a person asks a finishing question it makes a big difference as to weather they're from the frozen tundra or the desert southwest. If someone is worried about wood movement it makes a difference whether they live in a humid area or a dry area. Also if someone is looking for mentoring then it would be nice to be able to offer some help if you live in the area. etc etc. plus it's kinda nice to know which parts of the family are neighbors, it always nice to set up a get together. Even if it only for a cuppa Joe and to tell some lies.

    Larry -

    I'll give you my RR# and street number if you wanna send me some of those walnut trees that grow like weeds where you are.

    I could probably manage a few lobsters in return, some nice pickled herring and some good Moosehead beer. All in the family, ya know
    All the best,

    I'll wholeheartedly agree with that Larry, it makes a difference like Don said about what you are talking about or asking for advice.

    sometimes you see people asking about a law question or building code question..it would be nice to know where they are from to give an intelligent answer..not that I have ever given one...

    I'm a cab'nit maker. I got no use for twisty old mesquite stumps I got one of those wood spinning things, but my most of my output is "decorative firewood". And mulch.

    Besides, I'd have to ship one heck of a load of lobsters your way just to pay for the freight on wood. Not that I would mind, really - with the prices we pay for hardwood imported hardwood here.

    I love Nova Scotia, but most of the trees that grow here are good for 2 things only - pulp and firewood
    All the best,

    I agree Larry, but will generalize your suggestion to change 'state' to 'country and region'.
    Cheers, Frank

    I really don't think I can get any more specific about my location without telling you what room my computer is in.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    Well you all know where I am, the Dungeon

    Good idea, but it is a voluntary thing.

    Cheers!
