Sounds great Scott,
I always enjoy talking with NG collectors & hearing about their experiences. I'm retired and available to chat quite often. I've been a NG member & collector since 1978. Hope to chat soon.
I actually just discovered this website a few weeks ago. It's very cool - I don't really have any particular interests in NG. I've been a fan my whole life, my Dad has an extensive collection and now I'm working on mine.
I haven't been on the site for a few weeks, went to the Custer WI Renewable Energy Fair on Friday. Many plans will be in the following months & years and will try to make an imact with alternatives. For Geographics, it will take a while to sort everything out and start with major projects.
i was browsing through the forums and saw that you are in just about every one! ha, well i was wondering if you would like to expant your collection. i recently have come accross at least a 1000 N.G. and i have gone through 3 box's and already have 300+. so anyways, i was wondering if you would like to have a look at my list, when it is completed in a few days, and see if you would like any. anyways, email me if you want to talk about it. email@example.com
I notice that you live in Michigan. Awesome! I live in Allen Park. You seem like you know a lot about collecting. I'm selling a bunch of NGs and I was wondering if you'd like to come by and look at my collection and/or give me some more info. I will cover your gas. Thanks!
About the NGS March--as far as I know we do not have a digital version available, but I'm running your question by someone else. We do have an old audiocassette that I may see if we can make available. I'll get back to you on that, as well whatever I find out about a better version of the Bernstein theme.
Sure looks different then the last time I was on here. It was just a bulletin board in the late 90s. I haven't been actively collecting for almost 10 years but my wife and I bought a house, so I am going to start again. It's good to see the community has grown.
Thank you for sharing the Dogs & Titanics post. It's a great story. I'm in the Knowledge Management area of my professional association and love the ideas of stories. I don't have great ones like this, tough. I've bookmarked it on my Del.icio.us account as well. It also great to hear from you and see your activity on Collectors Corner. I also love to see the interest groups form around particular topics. I was talking to Cathy last weekend and sounds like she has a lot of great ideas for sharing historical perspectives from the archives.
