Hmm, I googled Pallet town. I found this:
Pallet Town (Japanese: マサラタウン Masara Town) is located in western Kanto and serves as the hometown of Red, the protagonist of the Generation I games, as well as several other notable Pokémon Trainers who begin their Pokémon journeys in Kanto. Professor Oak's Laboratory is in Pallet Town that is used to research Pokémon.
It all makes sense now, it's a pokemon thing. My kids drove me nuts with those cards!
I guessed one could figured the approximate location of a member by looking at the time of his/her posts in comparison with other members' post. e.g., The fiddlerman is in eastern time zone so is oliver, anathama, kakashi540 is in pacific time zone and so am I, Pikachu is in eastern area as well as confirmed by the fiddlerman. Daniel's in the Philipines for sure. I guessed pikachu like to play games with us. BTW, I didn't mean to leave my location out, I didn't find a spot where I could list it.
Fiddlerman, are you half Swedish?
Italian, Polish and Russian = Pierre? Now I am confused. My Dad's parents were Scottish and German, my Mom's parents were English. I too am a mutt! With my middle name, David Cameron, I am the British Prime Minister!
Still working on The Star Spangled Banner. I was confused and kept trying to play the beginning part at the repeat. The second time around. I did not notice the bracket above stating 1 and 2. It just was not making any sense...lol. I guess I should pull my head out of my butt and take a look around once in a while!
After years of blogging I've come to the conclusion that unless you're giving out your entire name (and are listed in local phone directories, etc.) and/or your personal numbers, people won't be able to arrive on your doorstep unannounced, nor will they be able to steal your identity. It's much more Urban Legend than Actual Fact. You should be more worried about what your financial institution does with their paperwork or a disgruntled employee at your workplace - those are more likely to cause you identity troubles.
Besides, it's pretty cool to be at a boat show in another state and have someone walk up and say, "You're Doryman, aren't you? And this must be Mrs. Doryman. We read your blogs!" OH is a builder/restorer of wooden boats, and a bit of a Luddite in some respects - he likes to know that the people he corresponds with online are actual people, and not "characters".
Do you have any idea how many people ask me, "Are you fiddlerman?"
OK, maybe it's because it says FiddlerMan.com on my cap.
LOL! I guess it's pretty obvious If you aren't Fiddlerman, you would have to be a big fan!
Actually, it's super easy to find people online. A few google searches and some educated guesses can turn up a lot of information. http://lifehacker.com/329033/h.....one-online
Only if your listings are current Only one entry for me, and it's old. It is disturbing to see my former phone number listed when I paid good money to keep it unlisted.
