So ... what'dya think?
We were limited to one choice for our interests here, so I chose photography. But like you, I have lots of interests ... when you're an Alaskan it comes with the territory. Mostly I'll post photos here and we'll see where it goes from there.

I'm married, with mostly grown children, and have lived in Alaska all my life. Most of my friends, not all, are Alaskans. I was introduced to this site by Ava Eads, whom I've known all my life. I grew up on the Kenai Peninsula, my wife was born and raised in interior Alaska, and our children were born here. Having said that, we have travelled a fair amount around N. America and internationally. Just because we're from this wonderful place, we're pretty well plugged in with issues and events elsewhere. We are not "head in the sand" people ... most Alaskans aren't. Don't assume that all Alaskans are like, or agree with, those you might hear about in the national media.

I'm happy to hear from people and usually answer if someone sends me a note. But, no trolls, please. I'm not interested in solicitations for pharmaceuticals, finding romance, getting money out of Nigeria, or other scams. Willing to talk about almost anything Alaskan.

Onward and upward,

Magpie

Ahhhhhh, that's what was wrong with the memory. I remembered you as Chris, and now see 'Jon'. I thought I had lost my mind for just a minute.

I am excited that you'll be sharing pictures.

You know where Alaska is, and the techtonic plates aren't moving fast enough that you couldn't catch up anytime you want ...
Likely, summer would be best ...

Hello Folks,

I posted some images here: U.S. Alaska - The Last Frontier forum: Eagle River, Alaska - The secret Valley between Anchorage and Palmer - I think it's on the Carpe Diem Cubit. Stop in and take a look ... I took the most recent pictures today ... Here's one for you as an appetizer ...

I will, Weeds ... thanks for the thoughts.
It seems that most people are looking only at the Photography Plus string ... there are more photos on the "Alaska Photography and Commentary" string, too. It's a forum through the "Magpie" cubit.

We need a link to the Alaska Photos string, Chris....
Can't find it on the Magpie Cubit for some reason.

So ... what'dya think?
Keeping in mind I am still learning how this site works ... I post on other sites and this one is a bit different.
I believe the "Magpie" cubit is here: http://cubits.org/Magpie/thread/view/42616/
When I go to that link (which I got from the URL field above the page) it takes me to the Magpie cubit which has listed "forums" and "recent threads" ... "Alaska Photos and Commentary" is one of the forums and (at least right now) it is also one of the recent threads.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to offer any advise you think I need to help me understand this site better.

Also, thanks for your comments on my art work. Detail in charcoal is not difficult if one takes time ... uses a few careful techniques thin sticks of charcoal with "stumps."

I'll post some wood sculpture at some point.

Alaska Photos.... is not showing up in your forums on the Magpie cubit.

Have you posted to it?
Have you opened it up to cubit members, visitors?

If you want, you can add me to your admin list for just a minute and I can take a look at your control panel to see why it isn't public, because I do think that's the problem. Has anyone posted to it at all, besides you, I mean?

Yes, I know about charcoal, thin sticks and stumps, but goodness, it is very difficult to do. That's why you are amazing. I call 'em like I see 'em.

So ... what'dya think?
When I go to the main Cubits page and type in "Magpie" in the search field ... the cubit shows up.
It and Photography Plus are both in the main forum
When I type in the upper left field "Cubits.org" ... it shows that I watch four cubits: Magpie, Carpe diem, Blue Gardens and Art and Artists
There are "Binoculars" in each of them under "Joined Cubits" that means all of them are supposed to show up in my Cubits.org homepage.
In Preferences, I have indicated "Allow everyone to see"

In the "Magpie cubit" ... there are two forums: Alaska Photos and commentary and Main
There are two recent threads: Photography Plus (this is a forum in Carpe Diem, I think) and Alaska Photos and Commentary.
