    @Ken Anderson would it be possible to have some sort of map that would show where members live? I mean their general vicinities, not their exact locations. As someone with a stalker, I'm against having exact locations posted anywhere online, but I'd love to be able to look at a map and see little pins and learn who lives there. Names of towns and states don't mean as much to me when I can't picture them in my head.

    I've seen the type of map that shows forum members. It was long ago though.

    You are too slow, I had it for all to see on a pic I took of that cable company tempting deal I got in the mail. Thanks to Joe in a PM telling me my address was on it, I deleted it and put another on.

    You know my address anyway.:) You send me a check every month so I like all your posts. ;)

    image.jpeg Bonnie has already said she lives in Cypess, which is in the NW part of this map. Diane lives closer to Galveston on the coast, in the bottoM right corner. I am close to the blue dot in the upper right corner.

    Here is my neighborhood, not showing my street though. Lots of pools in Fresno tells you how hot it gets. I don't have one though and am glad I don't because of the expense. image.jpg

    This is the kind of map we had a forum I was on many moons ago, though I think our names or avatars were on the location pins

    My neighborhood this week ...Really! .. Houston's yearly Livestock Show & Rodeo is about to begin .... rodeo.jpg

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/trail-riders-mosey-houston-livestock-show-rodeo-37166691
    About 3,000 riders on horseback and in wagons are moseying along Texas roads in celebration of next month's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

    Organizers say the 13 trail rides will converge in Houston on Friday, forming a small city of modern-day settlers at Memorial Park. They'll take part in a parade Saturday leading to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which opens Tuesday and runs through March 20.


    Many roads and highways across Texas follow what were once trails formed by settlers traveling by horse and wagon. Trails were also formed by cattle drives.

    The Sam Houston Trail Riders, formed in 1955, is the second oldest trail ride heading to Houston. They're following the trail Gen. Sam Houston took when he traveled to Houston in the mid-1800s.

    Hmmmm, good question @Holly Saunders , Maybe someone gets paid to do it. I seem to remember that when the circus came to town, you had to get on a list years in advanced to be able to shovel up elephant poo. I'm not sure if they had to pay for it or not. It was supposed to be great fertilizer. Can you imagine the job description.

    The Rodeo is a good excuse to get out the Cowboy hats and boots every year. Huge event.
    Many places, especially western parts of the country have yearly Rodeos - the one here lasts for 3 weeks and big name singers appear for the shows every night. They have a BBQ cook-off for two days prior to the start of the Rodeo.
    and a lot of this ..

    ..... and on the other note of picking up poo ..... the Republicans have a debate in Houston tomorrow night also..:p

    Near by my home is Marukai Wholesale Mart.
    [​IMG] Right at the left of the screen is Kamehameha Hwy. which was Dillingham just a block away we just ahead of this parking lot, right after the little industrial warehouse. Living near Marukai Wholesale Mart makes life very convenient for shopping too.

    @Diane Lane it has been recommended that Members put their location within their signature to help us know where a poster is from.. 001.gif Look at mine and others..

    Yep but a lot of us have signatures disabled..( as I do Ken)...so we still wouldn't see a location there... perhaps under our avatars would be a better place to put it..:)

    @Holly Saunders, why do you have signatures disabled? Is there something I don't know?
