For the 2015 forum, could we please add your home base city and state again. Being an old f-rt I like to figure where our posters are in the world. I don't have a lot to do.

Not only is it nice to know where the poster is located so we can enjoy our friends from around the world but if someone is having trouble it good to know you may be able to locate some help close by.

Agree 100% ! I know some people are concerned about privacy ... but really, no one can do much with just city and state.

Go to your user profile, click on "additional personal information" and enter city and state... it's easy and would make us a better community.

Wes - I ask myself that question numerous times each day.

It helped when I added my city and state to my profile.
All I need to do now is remember what part of the country NH is in!

"... but really, no one can do much with just city and state."

Nothing except get your address, phone, spouses name, property tax records, relative's names and addresses, where you work, licenses and legal history including arrests and lawsuits. Perhaps even tell what you had for breakfast if you have a "modern" home. :-)

It is also helpful if you are trying to sell something in the classifieds several times I've been interested and contacted a member only to find they are too far away for me to fetch what I want.

Ken

I can get that information about you without knowing city and state. So can anyone else.

You don't even need to own a computer or be on the net for someone to find out that info.

You can't hide. Welcome to the "information" age. ;o)

"SORRY THE ADDRESS YOU ENTERED COULD NOT BE FOUND"

A lot of computer programs have that trouble with my location. Maybe they can't handle a zip code that includes three towns.

I don't think it works if your address is not in Google Earth. It couldn't find my parent's old condo in suburban St. Louis, either. I suspect in that case, they didn't go into the cul de sac when they were filming streets. Enter the address of someone else to get the effect....

I hope by next winter I'll be finished with exterior reconstruction, the scaffolds will be gone, and I can shoot some Model T pictures with the house.

I agree that it's good to have your location shown with your name.

For those who don't want to show their name, they could put a more generic location, like; SE Wisconsin, which at least puts the location in the ballpark.

While we're at it, a profile picture is nice too.

Some of us don't live in a city. I guess I could put the name of the city that delivers my mail, but then no one would know where that was unless they lived within 40-50 miles. Of course, I could put the name of a nearby larger city, but then no one would know where that was either unless they lived within 100 miles. SE Georgia works pretty well for most intents and purposes.

Carl, it's an old picture I shot on film. No program. It was a time exposure for about five minutes by moonlight. During that time I went around in the house turning on the lights in each room for a few seconds.

Richard, you're right. I've been in here waiting for the outdoors to get above freezing. Now it's up to 37 and I'm going out to get some work done.

Wes, Thanks for posting this again. It should be a requirement to include you town and state with your name before you are allowed to post here.

It's very helpful when giving advice or offering help if you know the posters locale.

I discovered my "next door" neighbor, Ralph Ricks, several years ago because we both lived in the same town. Turned out I could practically look out my window and see his house when sitting at my computer!

Please add your hometown to your name!

Thanks Bud . . I did the 'additional personal information' in my profile. Now lets see if it shows up in this post. Beautiful home Steve but you say you start work when it "warms up" to 37. I quit work and stay by the fireplace when it drops down to 40. . Ha1

We have a member in our club that is worried about privacy. He doesn't want his license plate shown in photos on the web. Trouble is every time he takes his car out, people are going to take photos and can post them anywhere without asking.

2 miles past the pasture clearly marked Timbuckto you'll find my front gate.

Front gate! When you get to a certain age, everything reminds you of something else.

At the state fair Ole met a rancher from Texas. They were discussing farming and ranching, and the Texan told Ole, "I can get in my truck at daybreak and drive all day, and about sundown I'm just getting to the front gate of my ranch." Ole replied, "Ja, I had a truck like that once."

Beautiful Maltby Washington, 1/2 way between nothing and nowhere. Far enough out and close enough in. All the comforts of a big city with the benefits of a small town. Where horses out number cars, and you can't hear your neighbors argue. Just a slice of heaven.

just sayin'

Hal, think you're closer to the likening! I think I was thinking Kincaid, typing the other. Don't know why, but I seem to confuse the two. Art was never one of my better subjects in school!
John, you can have that snow!! Looked like that around here last year!
Oh yeah, where am I? Right in front of my computer! LOL...had to say that! Surprised someone hasn't already come up with that one! :-)
I think my city is in my profile, heck I can't remember! :-(

It's a PITA to have to go to a person's profile to see what part of the country he's in. Too often answers to questions are dependent on climate or topography.

Does everybody get that Surf City is in southern Calif?

Google Earth view of my neighborhood.

I stumbled across this a few years ago while looking at an area.



The Alaska A/L 737-400 was probably at about 1,000 feet altitude on departure from Reno. What's the chance of that?

Given the hundreds of planes in the air every day, I guess it's not surprising that some would show up on satellite view.


A few years ago the Google truck caught my brother standing in his driveway. There was a closer view, but that one has since been updated when he wasn't there. You won't see me in a picture like this. Out here in the sticks we don't have street view.

Steve J, What shocked me was that we looked a while back and discovered that Google did in fact have a street view of our place! (It had been recently added)



Believe it or not. This IS the Google street view, looking at the front of my house.
Told you I was hiding in the forest.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Well, I'm not savvy enough to figure out how to post the Google Earth pics, but my beloved "Pete" the '12 got "caught" out in my driveway sunning himself while I had one of the other cars in the barn up on the lift! Pretty cool! Now my neighbor thinks he's game for mal-contents! Oh well. What is, is.
Ralph, that plane pic is absolutely awesome!!

Yep, no matter how far out in the boonies you are, you're on the satellite view. The street view that goes with it is limited in coverage, but expanding. It takes a lot of driving for those camera trucks to drive down every street or road. I'll be on street view eventually, but so far it covers my road only up to about a quarter mile from here.
