Greetings from 40 N and 77.07.30 W!

Allow me to introduce myself...


Uncle Sam is the name. And I want you to comment on my page and leave me a message.

Yes, I am an American, living in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Carlisle was named for a town in England that was founded by Romans. It's interesting to me that an American town can be named after a walled city from the heyday of the Roman Empire. When you think about it, nationalism can be very silly.

I have been called a Yank, a damn Yank and a stoopid American here on h2g2. But I'm partial to that fine Cockney Rhyming Slang term Septic Tank1.

I find nationalism extremely ironic!

Consider this page. See what I mean?

Uncle Sam came to h2g2 on Sept. 27, 1999. It was a Monday and it was raining. Since then this many stopped by...

I've been gone for months, but now I'm back and ready to contribute to the Guide again.

The editors have accepted my entry on Uncle Sam! You can see read the original entry or check out my piece on Uncle Sam and the Grateful Dead.

I've also just submitted an entry to the Peer Review on The Star-Spangled Banner. Why not go and check it out?

Places to go, people to meet!

The Fun Run is over, but the idea was so brilliant that we're doing a Peer Review thing now in an 'official' capacity.

Irving Washington and Jimi X were the first two Researchers to visit my page! That was back in the days before there were Aces.

1I love whole concept behind septic tanks. The idea that putting your waste into the ground untreated and sinking a well for drinking water on another part of the same property is something that is a 'Good Thing' makes me want to giggle.
