    My name is David. Born in Olongopo Bay, Zambales, on the Island of Luzon, in the Philippines.

    We moved nine times before I turned four, then landed in Maryland. Between Annapolis and Baltimore, on the Severn River.

    In 1989, at age 19, I left home for college, in Idaho. Moscow looked like the biggest golf course you have ever seen. I saw a deer, in town, my first day there. The first day I was a resident I had a close call with an escaped bull, from a rodeo. Whee! Unlike Maryland...

    Graduated from UI in 1993.

    Got married to my college sweetheart, in 1993 who broke my heart 7 years later.

    I've worked at the same place for 12 years [yawn].

    Bought a house in 2003, a new Mustang GT, in 2006 and started my backyard chicken "ranch" (9 birds) in 2008.

    Hi David! We just moved to the country and second night here a coyote ran across the yard near us...I just about had a heart attack! We hear them howl, a big difference from hearing police and ambulance sirens.

    I just wanted to say hello, I am new here too and love this website.

    Quote:Yeah, we lose a lot of people to "the big city". [​IMG] My Mom's old college roommate lives in Iowa. Visited there once, as a kid. People are not kidding when they say it's flat. Flat places look all lumpy and mountainous, compared to Iowa, as I recall! [​IMG] We were warned not to walk into the corn (popcorn). You get turned around and as a kid, you can't see over it. Then you've got a lot of walking ahead of you, to find the next road. It was my first interaction with chickens. [​IMG]
