  And as far as I recall, there's enough written in the column below to suffice in the who-we-all are stakes. There's a topic a way down...I forget its name, but if I remember, it fits the bill.

  I'm up late tonight and here I am contributing relatively nothing to potatoe. I would however like to know more about the personas regularly submitting. I have lapsed contributing input for some time& it seems appropriate to seek some biographical info from those regualrly visiting. I would simply like to know more about everyone. I'm inquisitive by nature and in constant need of stimulating material to keep me ahhhh.....motivated?? Well anyway life for me in Austin right now is less than inspiring and yet I have had more work served to me than should be legally allowed. I'm solving problems for people whom I don't respect or admire yet have enormous amounts of the earth's scarce resources locked up in trusts, bank accounts, stocks,annuities and other secure monetary vehicles. I get a piece of the action thrown to me in tiny scraps but these people don't have to work for it. They play golf on a daily basis, belong to exclusive clubs, drive a different BMW, Jaguar or Mercedes weekly and relax without a care on the weekends at their hill country haciendas. My question now becomes should I take a moral dive in the shit and become more like them or runaway to God knows where and resolve to believe that the material world is not as important as......well.....What????? I would like to add that my ideal is to be somewhere I can read good fiction without interuption for a very long and undisturbed time. Of course with some pleasurable requisites during intermission which I will leave to your imagination.

  ... it seems like you already dove in, my friend! So, the question is: How long will you remain there? and, how far will you go? You seem to have a good sense of the moral imperatives involved -- so you're ahead of the game I think. If you start feeling like a slut on ANY level, then, you're selling out... Desires and cravings never go away -- and, as I just wrote a friend: if you cross one 'want' off your list, TEN MORE will pop up in their stead! It's endless... for me, tiresome and laughable. Anyway, it sounds to me like you just want a vacation. 'Kid' has many good things to say about the UK -- go to the English countryside and read your ass off! Bon Voyage!

  I have my hand out for what is due my performance. Today I have chosen not to do anything so I will have twice as much on my plate Saturday-->I'm nursing a hangover today. (Alcohol seems to punish me unfairly) I will remain in this position until I can fully develop my other options (1>more year). My long term goal is crazy but I like to dream. Found a school for K-12 with high standards, small classes and hire truly motivated & inspired teachers. Concentrate on Art/Science and receive magnet school status to subsidize tuition with property tax funds. I can't figure out if I want to be principal or just hire out and be a regent type figure. In my travels to Europe/England, I now have an open invitation to stay in a beautiful cottage house outside Twyford (W of London on a rail to Reading--->quick commute to the city) with a good friend and his family. I also have an invitation to visit Oakland with travel to Muir woods for a camping trip in April.Friends to visit in Dallas, San Antonio and Dripping Springs TX.......and no plans or time to do anything yet. The English countryside is very beautiful and I'd love to be there now, just need unlimited resources and someone to do my work for me.

  I am older than Tater but younger than God. I live in the southernmost part of Alabama, love my woman and my Harley, am gainfully employed and have never (yet) been to prison.

  Say, you wouldn't happen to know the owner of the Florabama club in Gulf Shores would ya? I'd like to get an insiders discount for ordering some of them fancy t-shirts they be selling these days. I'd also like to find out the dates of the bloody mary slam and fish toss contests this summer.

  I live about 25 miles from Gulf Shores. I do not personally know the owner, but I am planning on riding there tomorrow for a charity benefit. (I will not go if it storms, but the outlook is good at this time.) I'll let you know by Monday. How did you know about the Florabama?

  I travel pretty extensively and have done so for the past 8 years out of college. Traveling I-10 from California to Florida during one 6 week sojourn my friends and I detoured from Mobile down to Gulf Shores. It was late August or early Sept and very few touristas in this beach community, we enjoyed great weather and awesome seafood. The Florabama was a local beach bums recommendation. We partied there 2 consecutive nights. Loose redneck women (redneck=term of endearment) and free-flowing drinks reasonably priced. At the Florabama we bought t-shirts that only a proud redneck would wear. It seems like we met someone claiming to be the owner of this undomesticated southern restaurant/club but some people after a few drinks will tell you they slept in the Lincoln bedroom with the president's wife. Anyhow, I simply got to thinking about the Florabama/Pensacola/Gulf Shores since I remember having a damn fine time in the southernmost parts of Alabama. Let me know of some fancy t-shirts you may have noticed and if you do meet the owner(s) does he have a ZZ top beard, bald with long hair growing fom the sides of his scalp (brownish/grey) appearing to be mid-50's and with an inclination to pinch the behind of bikini clad women.

  Well, yes. The first of those two. I wish I were from somewhere else. Guinea maybe? Or Mali? But not an adult. Maybe by right in England I am, but at 20 now, I'm still a youth many places. I feel old though.

  'Fraid not, I'm from the less irritating and more straight-talking North of England. Bromley did crop up in a conversation of mine the other, and I thought it something of an oddity. (If that helps you for a frequency I think about the suburb).

  I'm the same age as Tater, in fact we went to high school together in California in the 1970s. Now I live in New York City where I am a professional geek wrangler at a big publishing company. I spend way too much time on the Internet, but it has been very, very good to me.

  A cohort of mine worked for Ziff-Davis. I think he was delivered a big nugget of cash in a buyout not long ago and now he pays for dinner, not lunch mind you, for the crew no questions asked. I never hear anything negative said about him now.
