    Default "Roll Call" - Introduce yourself

    Please take a moment and introduce yourself.

    I'll start.

    My name is Patrick. I'm a medical student here in OKC. Have lived here all of my life. Am currently taking a break from school but plan to return in July 2005. I'm engaged and plan on getting married in May of 2005. I'm a graduate from the OKC Public school system and am currently 24 years of age. Bricktown definitely interests me, as does commuter rail, tourism, and basically any city issue.

    Talking Joe the Schmoe

    I was the Webmaster for the City for I think about 8 years. Worked there for 12. I'm pretty apolitical, but I'm also a provocature. One of my favorite accomplishments at the City was the TalkBack forum.

    It was a lively, generaly uncensored soapbox for the Citizens of OKC. Needless to say, the Council had mixed feelings about it. While it ran for over six years, I think it lasted about a week after I left. But I feel stongly that the average citizen deserves a place at the table of opinions that influence City government.

    In the 80s I ran the Classen Art Center & the Max Herschfeld Galleries. Now I paint, teach Design & Videography at City Arts, freelance design work, & repair Macintosh computers through the Computer Nerds. I have a short attention span, so this type of variety works very well for me.

    I will be an enthusiastic supporter of this new forum venue.

    Hey everyone! My name is Brent. I'm an architecture student at the University of Oklahoma. I'm originally from Tulsa.

    I've grown to know OKC a lot better since I moved to Norman. I'm always interested in what is going on and I follow the development of Bricktown very closely. I'll try to keep all of you posted on the happenings in and around Norman.

  5. Cool Re: Roll Call- Introduce yourself

    Hi, I am a recent transplant to Oklahoma from the San Francisco Bay Area/ Silicon Valley.

    We have been here about one and a half years. I am still trying to adjust to the different weather and sometimes different ways of thinking but overall I really love it here.

    I was sitting last night in the backyard watching the fireflies, listening to the crickets(?) or cicadas watching the stars and it was just so peaceful! I appreciate that so much coming from a big city.

    There are so many great things about Oklahoma, I guess my hope would be to try to positively influence some of the attitudes regarding Oklahoma. I really want people to recognize the wonderful things here and not focus on some of the outdated perceptions.

    I was in the mortgage / real estate industry in California and am amazed at the home you can get here compared to there!

    I have two boys age 6 & 11, (love the schools here!) and have been married 16 years (yikes!!) it goes fast.. we have a Black Lab named Kodi and a Black cat named Zoe. My mom has moved here and various relatives have followed us out here. It's a booming place!

    I hope to make some new friends here in Oklahoma and learn more about downtown and the state in general.

    Look forward to chatting with you all - Karrie

    Hi, my name is Eva. I'm an Okie now for almost 6 years. I came down here from Buffalo, NY (Go Bills!) after my husband took a job with Hertz. I really like it. Love your winters! Not really crazy about seeking shelter in my guest bathtub during tornato season, but when in Rome...you know. The people here are great. I found a pretty okay job but my co-workers are super! There's a real team feel to it. They seem to be very accepting of me but then I think they do say, "Well, she is from New York." (Which is equivant to "her mother did drop her on her head when she was a baby"..lol) I have been "mamed" by men older than me which made me feel old and my heart has been blessed repeatedly. (Sneaky how it follows an insult like when a co-worker came into my unorganized office and said, "my my Eva, you're not a very good housekeeper...bless your little heart.)

    I have this thing against Dallas. Sorry, I have two Super Balls losses that started it. Then a couple years ago that darn skate was in the goal crease and there went the Stanley Cup. I can't help but call that city "Dall-ass."

    Lately I have decided to finish my degree in Journalism/Advertising. After a 20+ year rest from college I started up at UCO last fall. I don't have too much to go. I'm only going part time though. I really am determined to finish.

    I have done some freelance writing for Oklahoma Woman (www.okwomanmag.com) and hope to do more. I live in Edmond with my husband and dog Scruffy Girl and I am lactose intolerant.

    Hey Eva, welcome to the site, and I'm glad you like our city. I hear that from so many people from out of town!! I guess it's mostly the locals that tend not to like it, but that's probably the case a lot of places you go!

    Hey, thanks for your participation and welcome to the site! I see you've been a member for awhile, so I guess instead of welcoming you as a new member, I should say "Welcome Back!!!"

    Hey, feel free to jump in anywhere you'd like. I'm sure any thread you start will generate discussion, as we love to talk about anything and everything. Even though it may seem that we talk about Oklahoma City and Bricktown a lot, this forum is about way more than just that. Whatever interests you, feel free to bite!

    Thanks for your participation!

    Default "Roll Call"

    I think it is time for a new roll call, especially since we have had so many new members join this forum. Tell us a little about yourself, plus what city you live in. It can be one sentence or a paragraph.

    ......My name is Keith and I live in SW OKC. I have lived in south OKC for 24 years, and have seen many changes take place over the years. I have worked for the City of Okla. City for almost 14 years, and currently work for the water department as a dispatcher in emergency services. I am a very young 43 years old, and my dog thinks I am the best thing....next to doggy biscuits.

    I have been married for 23 years and I have an 11 year old daughter , an almost 17 year old son who is very opinionated, a one year old dog named Scout, and a hamster.

    I enjoy yard work, bicycling, racquetball, surfing the internet, listening to my police scanner, and spending time with my family.

    I am very active in my church, where I serve as a youth leader, head sound technician, and I am also chairman of our building and grounds committee. I have been serving at this church for 24 years and I love every minute of it.

    I have been on several forums in the past years, and that is where I have met some of the posters on this forum. I met Patrick, one of the moderators of this forum, many years ago and we have become very good friends. Many of us on this forum have met face to face, and even a group of us have met for lunch in Bricktown. Patrick and I still get together occasionally and have lunch at Bricktown, and stay in contact continuously by phone and e-mail.

    Anyway, enough about me. Let's hear from the rest of you.

  12. Default Re: "roll Call"

    I am Mr. Anderson.

    Ponca City, Oklahoma was honored with my birth 49 years ago. I moved to Oklahoma City at the age of five, and except for eight lousy years in Dallas and six months in Eureka, California, I have lived in the area all my life so far. (I have not done anything "all my life" because I am not dead yet)

    My dad was prominant stock broker and politician having been chairman of select governor appointed committees through the years. The most notable was the committee that formed the Oklahoma State Securities and Exchange Commision in 1965. That commision is now known as the department of securities.

    I was educated totally in south Oklahoma City except for kindergrten which was in north Oklahoma City. I graduated from US Grant and later from Oklahoma City Community College. In fact, I now live in the same home in which I was raised in far southwest Oklahoma City.

    For enjoyment I like bowling, traveling (having been world wide), these forums, the internet in general, politics (as many here obviously know), and television.

    For work I am in retailing. Also trying to find a better job hopefully in a bit of a different field. My degree is in broadcast communications.

    In 2003, I formally announced plans to unset Jerry Foshee, however, changed my mind after the council started discussions on the MAPS III proposition. I want about one billion dollars in funds for a REAL commercial airport to support a hub, a domed football stadium, light rail, and to hire the best outside sales force to do nothing but travel around the country at city expense to give sales presentations to corporations trying to lure them to Oklahoma City either as headquarter relocations or expantions, plus the major leagues to enfranchise teams here.

    Sports. I like baseball, hockey and basketball. HATE football, but support the NFL and the major AFL in possible teams here.

    And comedy. Plus, as my signature says...

    Today is that reeeally rainy Sunday in October, as I'm sure it will come to be known, so I actually have time to hang out on the computer (coffee & cigarettes, YUM!). My name is Charles Henry. I'm an artist, entrepreneur and long time Southside advocate. I'm currently staying busy doing creative construction related work, since all the boarded up houses in SE OKC are renovated. You may recall that I will throw a fit over demolition. Anyway... Here I am, nice to see things moving along so nicely and now for the self-serving part of my message. Visit my site, its rough as a cob but my webmaster ran to FL for a few weeks before getting it right. So visit, then check back and then tell allll your friends that for Specialty construction you have to call Charles Henry Studios.

    Hey all! I'm MissSaraMarie... Originally from Orange County, NY I've lived in Oklahoma for 9 years now... I love watching the changes that are coming up everyday here. This is a great place and I'm glad to see it is finally starting to deliver some of that potential it has.

    Hi,
    My name is Mike and I'm a lifelong resident of NW OKC for 53 years. I went to John Marshall and work in management for the USPS. I have spent my entire life watching OKC change and miss some of the old stuff but am excited about the new as well. It's a great place to live and work, just found this forum today and look forward to hearing from all of you.

    Hi all,
    My name is Mike. I was born in OKC nearly 66 years ago, and have lived in the area most of my life.

    My mother liked to move around a lot, so I have spent some time in California, Texas, and Arkansas. Probably about 6 years in total. The rest has been here in the OKC area.

    I graduated from Midwest City High School, but have also attended, US Grant, Capitol Hill High School, and a variety of others. Oh, and did I mention my mother really moved around a lot? hahaha.

    Just found this forum yesterday, and I think I'll hang out here a while.
