Arty, that girl lives in your neck of the woods these days! I think she's about to get engaged to a pretty swell guy or I'd give you her number (assuming you're single that is).




Back on topic, I used to go to the NE state fair as a kid, but I haven't gone in years. The fair here is all about agriculture. That's swell since geographically most of the state is devoted to Ag stuff, but demographically, most of the state has nothing to do with farming whatsoever. Omaha is "the communications hub of America," and at one time had more millionaires per capita than any city in the country. It's a growing, technology-driven town, but you don't see that reflected at the Fair. Lincoln is, of course, full of middle-class urban families whose daily lives have nothing to do with farming, either. So that's half the state's population within 50 miles of the fair, but none of us go because we don't do 4-H or Ag or any of that stuff. It's too bad.

Last I heard, California is a pretty big state. Be more specific on where. :-b

For the record, yes, I'm single.

That reminds me, for some reason or other, I haven't heard of a California State Fair like in the same vein as a say a Texas or Nebraska State Fair. All I've heard and/or been to are the county fairs (L.A., Pomona, Orange County).

She lives in Santa Monica, about four blocks off the beach.

Ah, nearer than I thought. I actually live about 10-12 miles south and I'm also close to the beach. :-b

I'm back...a few brain cells short but I'm back. This was my 13th year and was by far the best one yet. We had some new camp mates that were awesome and rather than spend the evenings roaming around the fair aimlessly like in years past we spent most of the time at camp playing music, talking, laughing, catching up, and getting to know each other. It was hard leaving Eugene....man I miss that place bad, we drove by the old house and I almost cried. We also went by Hayward Field where the Olympic time trials were last week(or whenever it was)and wow they really hooked the field up. Got to eat at a few of my favorite places before we left town and grabbed a few brews from my favorite watering hole. I hadn't been back to Eugene since before Christmas and now the fire to return has been lit....hopefully soon. ;-D

Good to have you back, Met!

Thanks man, good to be back! ;-D

I really wasnt to move back to Eugene. There or Portland are at the top of the list....really thats all we really have on the list at this point. We've talked about a few other places...Boise, Reno, the Seattle area, or maybe somewhere in Arizona among others but we really want to go back to Oregon. Where and when we move all hinges on Shannon finding a job, I'm going to be heading back to school so I can do that anywhere. Shannon's just about finished with her website and online resume, so the job hunt should be on soon.
