Hi. I would consider myself a recreational wikipedian. I enjoy perusing articles for bits of interesting information, and am happy to fix typos or organize images along the way. I make all my edits in good faith, and hope that they will add to the collective input to improve whatever I fiddle with. However, if I manage to royally screw something up, please let me know so I can fix it and refrain from repeating the mistake. Also, I'm really rusty on my rules for citations and copyrights, so feel free to point me in the right direction on those too. I hail from Northern California, so I tend to pay special attention to pages related to that topic or region. Other favorites include Metallica, rugby union, guitar and video games, natch.
|Picture of the day|
An 1873 print promoting the Grange, the oldest U.S. agricultural advocacy group with a national scope. In 2005 it had 160,000 members.
The central scene shows a farmer with one foot on his shovel, captioned "I Pay for All". From left to right, the top insets show a farmer's fireside and the Grange in session; the bottom ones show a harvest dance, a broken-down cabin signposted "Ignorance" and "Sloth", and a Biblical scene of the gleaners Ruth and Boaz.
