I haven't figured out the chat feature yet....No, I'm unemployed in Colorado Springs. I moved here from Tucson to marry my wife :-) I have visited CC, though. Quite impressive.
Are you at CC? I have old connections there too. I love Colorado Springs.
Oh, wow, Ava, how cool! Nice to meet you :-) Nice to meet you anyway, of course, but thank you for sharing that bit of knowledge.
That's the T-B in my name. He was my grandfather.
You're welcome, Ava! Yes, I have a copy of Torre-Bueno. Probably don't use it enough.
Thanks for following me, bugeric24. Since you're a bug guy, do you know the Torre-Bueno Glossery of Entamology?
