Vikki,

I may go back to an anonymous avatar after a short trial -- I agree with Greg that it feels strange looking at my own face on the monitor surrounded by cute mice and mysterious planets. It is nice to see who we're talking to, but the other avatars show some of our interests -- like Greg's fascination with astronomy. Maybe I will create a file with my face hiding behind one of my interests -- like Sam and her camera.

My friend down the street moved here from the Detroit area, and LOVES to call her daughter who still lives there when we're having sunny 70's or 80's days and Detroit is having snow (like this week).

I think there are fewer calls when the summer monsoon hits, but then she says that it's more comfortable here at 112 degrees and 35% humidity than in Michigan with 90 degrees and 90% humidity.

Well, seeing as I passed 30 posts, I decided to add an avatar as well. Pic was run thru the smudge stick filter to make it more indistinct .

As for the name, big does not refer to stature, but rather to the hair. A name that has followed me from varsity days. As you may be able to see, even though the beard is white, the hair is still big

CJ - Although I like seeing the faces, I believe one should do whatever makes them feel comfortable here. One of the things I like about using my picture, is that I can easily find a post I wrote, in case I need to refer back - it sort of sticks out from the crowd.
Also true here about the negative weather - I don't hear too much about that.

C. Couch - I can't help it, I just like your picture better!

BigAl - Hi, I like your avatar, makes me think of a sticker. Great story on your nickname too!

My little initaials look lost on this page.

Greg, nice to see your smiling face again. I must admit, I missed it when you changed avatars.

BigAl, looks like you're no longer a fledgling. There's definately no mistaking what the Big stands for with all that hair. I'm green with envy.

CJ I applaud your bravery and say it's a nice picture. Nice to see you too. Maybe I may get brave sometime and post something older than my school photo.
DJ

BigAl says "Hey Sharon, nice new avatar!"

I'll second that. If I remember correctly -- you've suddenly grown up!
