Greetings Late-Fall WoodDorking Mavens,
While the majority of you collectively freezeyourassesff, me and my
fellow SoCal (and significant portions of southern Arizona and
portions of Florida, I suppose), wooddorkers are able to enjoy OUTDOOR
woodworking... at night! Bwahahahahahahaha!
You must be one of those Yankee redneck types then. :)
In all seriousness, I've found people in the north in big cities are just
mind bogglingly hateful toward each other all day long. It's real culture
shock for a southern boy, even though nobody I know in the real south would
even consider a Virginian a southern boy.
(We're sort of stuck in the middle. Hillbillies to you Yankees, Yankees to
the people from North Carolina southward. We can't win.)
I've met a few nice people in the more remote parts of Pennsylvania, and
even one really good guy in Quakertown, so no, I don't really think you're
all like that. A lot of you are though. Just a culture thing. I think
the rudeness is a function of population density over time. I think the
South hasn't been urbanized long enough for our city people to get that
nasty, but they're working on it.

I'm sorry but to all of those misguided people the only people who can be
called Yankees are from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut,
Massachussetts, and Rhode Island, those "New yawkas" are just wannabes:-)
A true Yankee who actually lives in the coast redwood forests of California!
Do I detect a little *snobbishness* here? Keep having to remind people that
I live in "New Yawk", but over 400 mi. from the "Rotten Apple"! There's a
LOT more to NY than that collection of a**holes living in that sewer @ the
mouth of the Hudson River.

Sorry guys, but to 95% of the world's population, anyone living
anywhere between the 49th parallel or the Great Lakes and the Rio
Grande is a Yankee. Period. Full stop.
Replace "no" with "yk" for real email address
There's a lot to love about SoCal but it has plenty of short-comings.
Yeah, the weather's hard to beat but perpetually sunny days come at
the expense of hardwood forests, etc. I was just looking at the shop
photos on your website and if your shop has a clear view of that falls
in the photo then I hate you (figuratively speaking, of course).
btw: On the Gulph Mills page you have a local map. Are the places
listed on the map (e.g. wheelwright, blacksmith) being preserved as
historic sites? Pretty cool for you if that's the case.
