It's very hard when you are only typing things and can't hear a tone of voice or see facial expressions. I think this thread wasn't a bad idea. And just like CLutch said, if you don't want to tell, then don't post! Nobody knows your full name and it's your option to tells us where you live. Goboenomo set up a thread where people could post pictures of themselves rather than people having to look through the whole Members Photos part of the site. It's just people trying to get to know one another. If you feel uncomfortable posting this information, then don't. For those who do, great. We get to know them a little bit better.

As for me, I am a teller co-ordinator for a bank down here in Virginia. Before this, I worked for a small community bank, I've worked as a head teacher in a daycare center, the YMCA, K-Mart and Bess Eaton Donut Shoppe. I plan on staying in banking though you never can tell what will happen...I am only almost 23 years old and things could change!!!

Another of my passions I would want to pursue. Massage is such a loving and intimate exchange of energy. I would have a really hard time with the types of clientele I would prefer. I guess I see it on a more "universal, spiritual" level... and some have different perspectives. Blessings to you!

Guess I oughta jump into the fray.
Got bitten by the photography bug early in life. Did the school photography club/high school photographer thing.

Graduated RIT with BS in Professional Photography.
Spent 30 years working for a US Navy Research Laboratory in all kinds of photo stuff including scientific and high speed motion picture work in wind tunnels and ballistics ranges, tracking camera operation on test ranges. Worked on ships, aircraft, submarines etc. Writer/director of technical videos, video editor, presentations producer, raconteur and all-around good guy.

Currently Katie E and I run the Evergreen shop where she does interior design work and I restore antiques and build custom furniture.

We both write syndicated columns for weekly newspapers. Mine is called "Guy Stuff by Buck" which is a mixture of outrageousness, fantasy, fun and silliness aimed at lightening up your day. (PM me if you want a sample or two).

Funny how the journey of life takes so many twists and turns!

Worst thing I ever did: mow the lawn in tennis shoes.
Best thing I ever did: marry Katie.
