    Yes. If I remember correctly PDQ-XYZ (another alias 'notaclam') was active on the old site, then when it shut down he started a discussion group on one of the free personal forum sites before abandoning it when this version of Simple Living got up and running. He eventually joined here as XYZ_PDQ, although he never posted, and then disappeared shortly thereafter.

    PDQ was one of the more interesting characters around here. He lived a vagabond life, moving around for day jobs, living in campgrounds, going toward the South in the winter.

    At the end of his time here he ended ip buying real estate to stay put.

    No, I did not mean he sounded like PDQ. I meant it sounded like he was talking about PDX.

    I wondered if that was what you meant, but remembering PDQ Alan's interpretation also made sense. Oh well, I always enjoy reminiscing about long gone members and occasionally wondering where they are and how they're doing. Like Teacher Terry I love this forum and getting to know people through it.

    I like your distinction "new hippies". There is a difference. I notice it since I am that age of being here during the time and now being a semi "old hippie", so new hippie is a good term IMO.
