Aloha ahiahi Mark!
You played sousaphone when I played cymbals in...1979 reckon. My sister just broke the news to me about CMS closing, making two schools I have attended that have since closed down. Three if you count when the first grade was bused to Red Rock School. I had some e-mail conversations about that with your mom when I was teaching in Washington, DC.
I notice you haven't been to Hawaii yet. I need a catsitter for about a week and a half at the end of September, beginning of October. What are the chances?
- Wow! Haven't seen you in a while. Cool cats. I loved cats when I was back home. I need to finish reading your journal. I did take a look at your cats. Mom told me you were in Hawaii. I only wish I could come watch the cats. I haven't traveled there yet. I have become addicted to this encylopedia beyond reason trying to get history of home on this thing. It takes a lot of time. Sometimes I just want to go back to my blogs. I'll send you a message on your journal or feel free to e-mail me. I bet you have found one of my e-mails by now. If not, leave a message here and I will get the information to you. Take care!! Mark @ DailyNetworks talk 01:44, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Cherokee/Riverton Rose Trail
Mark - I was intrigued by your pages. I saw where your mother had written about Colbert County/Northwest AL, while I was just doing a little browsing about my grandmother's (what she called) "home place". I'm sure you are way too busy to do any new research, but do you recall anything about the John Hastings family from Cherokee? My grandmother, "Nanny", grew up in Cherokee, where her dad had a good sized farm. I grew up hearing so many of her wonderful stories and because she was such a faithful letter writer, I often heard about various and asundry (sp?) relatives and what they were up to. She died in 1997, at the age of 99. Anyway, back to what I was originally asking about..I am the poster child for the word digression...It seems that after Nanny married my grandfather (from Iuka)in 1920, her pa kept the farm for a number of years. When the TVA came in to create Pickwick, they needed his land and he sold it to them. He and ma were ready to retire anyway and TVA did not take no for an answer. Pa and Ma moved over to Tuscumbia, where they both passed away in the early 194's. None of their kids had wanted to stay on the farm, though my great uncles did stay in the area (Muscle Shoals and Sheffield) - they both worked for Reynolds until they retired. Well, flash up to about 1970, when I was doing a paper in my eighth grade Tennessee History class on TVA. I found that Pa was the first person to sue TVA and win because he was not happy with the $ they gave him. It was just a tidbit that I saw, and when I told Nanny, she was surprised as her pa was not an aggressive kind of guy. Now, somewhere, I have a small pencil drawing of the home place where Nanny was born, I think was at Riverton Rose Trail. My Nanny's cousin and his wife, Malcolm and Ernestine Turberville, owned the home and I remember going there as a small child, over 40 years ago. I have no idea whether or not the home still exists. I have an elderly cousin who at one time was working on a geneology of the Hastings family and Nanny has started working on it with her before her death. However, the cousin is in the early stages of Alzheimer's and it is hard to get any information from her. Sorry..I have rambled on...If you know anything, could you let me know? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am "just down the road apiece" in Memphis. Although I have often wanted to set out on my own search (I do know where Pa and Ma were buried) have never found the time! Thank you, Mark - Ruthie Cassin Ruthiemcafee (talk) 18:53, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
We're going to be having our first Mississippi meetup next month, and I would love it if you'd like to come out! A few of us will be staying overnight, so if you feel up to it, we could have a meet and greet that night and then breakfast the next morning and talk about Wikipedia and everyone's areas of expertise. Let's show 'em how it's done Southern-style! Mike H. Fierce! 22:00, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Muscle Shoals Sound Studios
Muscle Shoals Sound Studios is a Registered Trademark of MSS 3614 Jackson Highway Please Remove the pic of 100 alabama ave. MSS is a National Landmark and the sheffield power plant has nothing to do with our company it is now cypress moon and has nothing to do with MSS www.muscleshoalssound.org —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vox1mss (talk • contribs) 08:11, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your concern but all pictures of the old Muscle Shoals Sound studios were made by me with my personal camera and are accurate in that they once housed the studios. Pictures made of a building are not subject to any registered trademark. I looked at the article and saw a picture about a power plant. If you look closely you will notice I did not post that picture. Mark @ DailyNetworks talk 15:39, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Hey, I've been admiring the job you did on User:Dailynetworks/ubx/lexxdvd and I was wondering if you'd be receptive to replacing the generic "LEXX" text on the left with an image, such as "
Woodlouse curled up into a ball.JPG" or perhaps a cropped variant thereof? The curled shape of the Woodlouse looks exactly like Lexx's logo.

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted in Troy, Alabama
Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you're listed as a Wikipedian in Alabama. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Troy University, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.
Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).
I know Alabama is a big state, but if you happen to live near Troy and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from Troy who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 16:03, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I mistakenly changed one of your user boxes. User:Dailynetworks/ubx/New Mexico . I do not know how to revert the changes I made, I changed the border aroundthe NM flag from blue to yellow. I also don't want to "edit" your user box again for fear of ruining it. I am so very sorry. Platners (talk) 17:26, 10 July 2013 (UTC)platners
