    Hello, my name is Hal, and for those with a grasp of mathematics, my age is 3 to the 4th power.

    I live in Southern California's high Mojave Desert, at an elevation of 3000 ft.

    I have some unusual off-the-wall hobbies and interests, which few others have indulged in and know very little about.

    I'm into Classical, Jazz, Folk, and the only Rock I like are early Beach Boys.

    That's all for now.

    Welcome to the forum from Fresno, CA.

    I think I know you from SF. :)

    High Desert and Hal were my clues. :)

    HOORAY HAL......... YOU MADE IT ! ! !

    It was not all me, @Ken Anderson helped a whole lot, too.
    Everyone helps each other here, but Ken is the go-to person when you have forum issues.

    Well, hello Hal! I knew you from SF too. Didn't understood why you left, but you'll be happy here.

    @Hal Pollner
    Hey, welcome! Your exponential expression indicates an age older than my own, the 2nd. one now that I know of!

    Our location is at 550 ft., along the Colorado River, near Bullhead City, AZ. Kingman, 30+ miles eastward at 3100 ft. is always 10 degrees lower night and day than our area, likely similar to your climate?

    No one can possibly have more unusual or further off-the-wall interests than, I! Ask anyone here! C'mon, tell us about some of the legal things, won't you? Compare to shooting lathe-turned, beer-can sized wooden "slugs" out of a Civil War Cannon.........for example.

    My wife especially likes early Beach Boys, too! Glad you are here! Enjoy. Frank

    EDIT: My edit proves my lack of tact and finesse! Should have read all posts before quoting you! I, too, am from SF, but have been away a looong time........since I was kicked out, actually! Been so long, "High Desert" combined with my lagging memory yields no clue.......

    Hi Hal welcome. I use to live up there near pyramid lake off the I-5. Loved the desert but Calif and their ever invading regulations drove me out. I think you'll like it on this forum every one is so friendly.

    HAL!! Good old Hal. Man it's been such a long time since I last seen ya! Where was it now, don't help me, I'll remember. Uh, was it.....no, couldn't be back in aught 8. hummmm...........nope can't remember. SF? Oh yeah, San Francisco! That's it! Now I remember!

    Actually we have never met or at least I do not think so but everyone else around here has including my wife so I just tried to fit in.
    At any rate, a most hearty welcome to you sir and may we actually get to know one another.
    Can't blame you for leaving San Francisco or even the other SF. Welcome to this side of the street Hal...........Enjoy yourself and have some fun!

    Hi hideserthal, C'mon in and have a cup of coffee. I left SF a long time ago but went back recently to see if it was any better. It is somewhat better but not as good as this one.
