Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue May 22, 2012, 01:15 PM

Howdy - NRaleighLiberal here.....

AKA Craig! Yes, I live in North Raleigh, NC - a blue dot in a very red neighborhood (surrounded by all Faux, all the time!)

Found DU as a haven of sanity in 2004, moderated for a long spell toward the end of DU2....and really like the upgrades/changes that make DU3.

Very left wing/liberal - strong Pres. Obama supporter (though he is not nearly as liberal/left as I would like)....will likely work for his re-election.

I haven't been around much (gardening season has me really busy - you can find me most there or in Cooking - doing more reading than posting these days).

See me for your gardening info needs - esp. heirloom tomatoes!


By the way, I've met (a few in person) some of the absolutely smartest, sharpest, nicest people here on DU.

Welcome!

1. Hi Craig.

Good to see another former DU2 mod here in the Welcome forum. Kinda reminds me of the Welcome threads in the mod forum.

6. The garden is coming along.

We occasionally get to eat some chard, and some lettuce. Still waiting on everything else though. I should post more pics.

3. Hey Craig...



Did I ever tell you that NC is one of my all-time favourite places to visit. We've vacationed in Oak Island a few times, and I love driving through the state. Love the people. Love the BBQ

Still on my to-do list is to schedule some minor-league ball games next time we're down that way.

Sid

8. Outer Banks is a great place to visit -

and I loved taking the ferry to Ocracoke. I guess it was about 10 years ago that we were there. I remember seeing wild horses as well, but don't recall which particular island they were on. Anyway, nice working with you on MIRT.
