where is everyone from?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

i ask this because i am still trying to figure the for sale thing out. are there alot of people from over seas? i have a feeling alot more people are going to be from the mid section and west, lets see .

-- renee oneill (oneillsr@home.com), June 30, 2000


Renee, there is an old post listed under uncategorized listed as where are you living. There were alot of responses and supported your theory of most being in the midwest. There's even a listing in one of the posts that tells how many subscribers from each state and how manyforum people from each state. Hope this helps. The trade/barter/sell idea sounds good to me.

Keep in mind a buy/sell/swap forum would cut into the magazine's classified ad revenue. There are something like 300 on-line auctions, with eBay being the largest. I don't know how many wanted sites are out there, but know of several. Granted, this one would be occupation/interest specific, but how could it be done without cutting into Countryside's revenue?

-- Ken Scharabok (scharabo@aol.com), June 30, 2000.

From good ole" VA.! I was thinking Ken about your comment regarding cutting into Countryside's revenue. I noticed in the magazine a lot of the classifieds are mainly breeders or businesses. I think though, this is a question for Steve to answer. Bernice

Ah, Kansas! Flinthills area, to be more exact. Nice south wind out here, and some good range land, but believe it or not, the humidity in Central and SouthEast Kansas can be AWEFUL! Especially if your a sheep or furry rabbit!

I'm a caretaker of a farm from Almighty God in S.E. Illinois. Richland County--about 100 miles east of St. Louis on U.S. 50. Now why did I go and mention St. Louis? Seems a kazillion miles away from my quiet little 24 acre farm, down a dead end road next to the river bottoms. Trees, birds and NO Close nighbors, cept'n one and he waves when he drives by. Pull up a chair-come set a spell whilst we drink some Iced Tea, settin in the shade and listening to the birds sing, watch the rabbits run in my yard and marvel at Almighty God's handi- work!

We're in Maine, ayuh! Watch out for the folks in Saskatchewan (I misspelled that, but the spelling police are at least a couple of hours behind me! - Tracy, on the other hand, is probably going to slap me upside the head!) But I digress! A post to your question suggests you check out a previous question. Do so! Beyond that, I think (as also previously posted) everyone should indicate their locality when referring to raising things, killing things, harvesting things, identifying things, tasting things, imagining things, stepping in things, cuddling things, or being repulsed by things, although the latter category only encompasses Despicable Bill, Algore the Chameleon, or Janet who is packing for her move to Vermont (the Poofter State). Digressed again! Must be the genes! Anyway - GL!

Northern Vermont, by way of Southwest Texas, by way of South Alabama, by way of North Alabama. Hey, I'll try anything once! Would love to hear from folks in this area, as I am new to Yankeeland, and am finding growing anything up here a challange.

-- Julie Kahrs (rjbk@together.net), July 06, 2000.

I wonder if it is appropriate to compliment someone on a question. I think this is one of the best. I even printed it out and stuck it on the wall. It's kind of neat, when I read a post, to look up and see what state it came from. Great post, Renee!!. Eagle, Texas by way of Tennessee. (by the way, where's Renee from?) (Smile)
