Where is YT? He can be the eccentric town genius, the mad scientist if you will. He keeps to himself working on experiments and inventing state of the art genius stuff. Although he is quite moody and not very approachable if there is a looming catastrophe he always come thru because deep down he is a softy and loves his little town as much as we do.

Thanks for pointing this out, Bilby. A correction has been made.

I'll run the greenhouse and provide flowers and vegetable plants, if that suits you all.

I'm also a part-time shrink, since people always tend to tell me their problems. I'll sort'em out and send the really messed up ones to you, Alix.

And Red Kitty, you're not the only hippie here. Maybe you can help me out in the greenhouse during the busy season?

Katie, I'd like to apply to be the editor of the food and gardening section of the paper I'm currently working on a certificate in professional writing, to be completed this spring, and am enrolled in Intro to Journalism and News Writing. (Sorry, BT, public speaking is not my strength.)

In my spare time, I'd like to help out with the catering.

P.S. Bilby - taxi and cab are both short for taxicab; I guess it's another regional variation.

\ Looks like our town is lacking a religious organization. So, I'm going to build me a nice building with the sign "coexist" You've seen those bumper stickers, right? Everybody is welcome. Well I might as well do crisis counseling too. On Sundays let’s have a charity cook off, or bake off. Oh, on the back there will be "Soup To Go" place. Open between 12 and 2 PM only on the week days. Every day new soup.

I am a plumber--I can sweat copper and glue PVC with the best of 'em.

And I know how to brew beer and wine.

(As my co-worker Kenny says, "Girl, you would make some old boy a good wife.)

I'd be more than happy to volunteer my services as a weather girl/ sportscaster for your T.V. station buckytom. I'm a 20 something female and I also follow sports with a passion. I'm originally from Ohio though before settling in DC community, so I may have a tendency to focus on the Browns, Cavs, Indians, and Buckeyes. Although as a professional reporter I suppose I could learn to put my bias aside!!!
