Location....

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Location....

I know I've posted here regarding this before.

I sure wish members would update their profile and include a location. I don't mean you have to be too specific. Maybe just a country!

When posts are made regarding MS topics, it would be helpful to members reading the posts since it is not always disclosed as to location. Example, a post made by someone about a promising research occurring "locally" could mean Australia. I live in the US. The chances of me getting involved in that research would be zero.

A location would, if nothing else, just be neat to know where all our members are coming from.

Please consider it?

Hey Treez,

Ha ha!! Thats cute! A sense of humore today. :wink:

BTW: I have always had my local on my profile. NJ I believe, has at times been refered to as the armpit of America!! It didn't stop me from displaying it. And I like it here.

Bottom line. It's a Courtesy. Its just nice to know where the people your talking to are from.

ttyl,
Karen (OneEyeBlind) :wink:

Armpit? NJ is beautiful. I used to live on Staten Island and had lots of friends in NJ. There was a joke about Staten Island that went: NJ and NY had a boat race around Staten Island to see which would get to claim it. NY lost.

As far as location in profiles...is 4 a trend? Plus, it's cool to see how we're all over the place.

I don't have an opinion about NJ, good or bad....never been there!

London !

Postby treez » Fri Apr 01, 2005 4:57 am

LONDON....Huh, that place has a reputation all its own!

Just kidding Sarah, true it does have quite a reputation dating back so many years. Never been there either.

If London and New Jersey were equal distances from my home, I guess I'd choose London to visit first :? .

Sorry Jaycee :oops:

Just kidding all. I was just thinking, this morning, what a diverse group we all are! How this wonderful thing "the Internet" has brought millions of people together that 20 years ago would never have imagined meeting. Whether it be a brief encounter, or people putting their minds together sharing a common thought / interest. Case in point....look at us!

I guess that makes my point about this thread. 20 years ago would ANY of you have imagined how educated we have all become solely because of the WWW?

I personally look at where I'd be without the knowledge I've picked up here.

Don't mean to sound all melodramatic :roll:

I am not saying that NJ is a bad place. Really it's great. I was born and raised here. Its loosing its Garden State status though. They just keep building and developing. It's a shame really. And we have the best of all worlds. Mountains, plains and beaches! Can't beat that.

I would love to go to London. What history! I collect dragons and castles so the first place I would seek out would be some castles!! And Treez, Michigan is very beautiful from what I hear also. And New Mexico! The colors, flavors and textures! What's not to say about California. Some day I hope to see all these places.

See what you started Steve? I am going to be day dreaming about far off places all day. So much for work.

The internet is a great way to make new friends! And generate new and stimulating conversation!

Be well,
Karen (OneEyeBlind) :wink:
