    Good evening. What part of God's Country do you hail from? Hill Country? SoTex? Big D? Regardless, you've got a great group of people to learn from here (both Texan *and* Other).

    Belated greetings from just down I-35 (a few states south). My mother taught at Iowa State in the mid-90s, so I spent a good deal of time in Ames a few decades back. Welcome aboard!
