    What does your screen name mean-
    Smooth Blue Citrus -- Blue is my favorite color and I'm honestly very rarely without some sort of citrus (grapefruit and limes are my two favorites). I've used the screen name for everything I've done sine the late 90s ... lol! I'm a creature of habit.

    Anything else you care to share-
    I'm originally from Santa Cruz CA but I moved to Iowa in 2002 (it's a really long story). I really love Iowa; it's really a great place. I've moved around a bit since I got here -- lived in Eastern Iowa, moved to Chicago, then moved to the Des Moines metro (central Iowa). I think we'll be here for quite awhile.

    I'm a girl! For those of you that didn't know.

    I'm the forum TM, so if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to send me a private message.

    Never read Bryson. There are a couple that I've been advised to pick up (A Walk in the Wood ... I don't recall the other one), but I've just never gotten around to it. I'm a big reader, too, but lately I've become RSS addicted.

    Bryson is the man. A walk in the Woods is great. You might like The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid since its sort of based upon Des Moines (in the 1950's). He's a great writer though. Highly recommended.
