Welcome David and Stephanie!

Well, I live in western Pennsylvania, so we can form a chain of Brokies across our three states.  It's nice to see you both around on the boards!  I've been here since early April... also a refugee from imdb.

Thanks so much David! My dad's side of the family all hail from Indiana- mostly around Terre Haute. I've been to many a family reunion in Indiana  ;)
It's good to meet you and everyone else *tips cowboy hat*  :)

Stephanie -  I am very familiar with Terre Haute. I use to live in Evansville (about 100 miles down U.S. 41 from Terre Haute). Now I am back in Indianapolis.

Atz75 - Thanks for the welcome! We sure could form a chain! Now, if we find someone from Maryland, we will hook up with the Atlantic. Then let's find someone from Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and California, we'll touch the Pacific.

We are off to a good start though! :)

Thanks again for the welcome!

Yes, thank you atz  :)
And I'm all about the chain!
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road- in a world that may say that we're wrong?

Heya again,
Sorry, I forgot to really introduce myself... I'm Amanda.  My folks didn't stop at atz.

Hi again, Stephanie!  :D

I'm not "from" Illinois, but I have lived here since January. And there are several other Brokies here, too! And I happen to know there are Brokies in Colorado and California -- the other states above I'm not sure about.

But now that we're on the subject, I'm curious. Are there any Brokies here from Minnesota? That's where I grew up and have lived (on and off) for most of my life. You'd think it would be a Brokie-friendly state (blue, movie-loving, BBM in wide release), yet I've never seen anyone here who said they were from there.

Katherine-

I was "brave" last night and posted a poll asking people where they were from. So far, only three have answered it... including me. Hopefully more will respond soon, and maybe we can find out who on  Bettermost is from  Minnesota.

By the way, I LOVE that state. I have been camping up there too. It is beautiful... especially up around the Superior National Forest.

Hi Amanda! Please forgive me if I get that wrong once or twice! I am trying... believe me! So many new names!

Actually I think I probably know many of you from IMDb, but the names are different on Bettermost.

I will do my best to remember all the names. :)

Thanks, David! Both for the poll and the compliments of my native state. I have been to Indiana only very briefly, so I can't offer a knowledgable compliment in return. But I will go check out your poll -- good idea, BTW!

Katherine... Thanks for checking it out! By the way, I THINK I saw somebody mention Minnesota on my poll. Sorry, I can't remember the name though. I am still trying to learn them all! I am going to the poll in a few minutes and reread all the replies. It looks like 17 or 18 people voted last night and today! :D

Hi David, I was just there. Didn't see any Minnesotans, but it does look like we Midwesterners are still in the lead (that can't last, though ... can it?).
