Subject: New addition to bbc's Resource Page
From: Banjer
Date: 01 Mar 00 - 09:38 PM

I can be found sitting in our authentic Civil War era camp with my banjo. The picture was taken with an original camera of the period, using glass plates and developed according to processes used during the 19th century. The picture is in a sepia tone as was normal for photgraphs of the period. I am in Union uniform at this particular event. I also wear the grey whenever the need arises. The 'likeness was struck' (period term for picture was taken) at a recent local event. The photographer, when not reenacting, teaches middle school language arts. (English, for us old farts) Thanks are in order for bbc and her son David, for taking the time to give us all the opportunity to see who is part of our community.

Looks great Banjer. I am impressed.
It is nice to see such creativity in the photos.
I think it turned out really well.

Holy Cow, Banjer, ya better watch it, I've heard the newbies/yuppies are buying up old photos to hang on their walls and claim as ancestors...seriously! Rog heard or saw some program on it a while back! With the fine caliber of such you could probably become an instant "way back when" grampa of who knows how many families!**BG**

Really well done and what a nice addition to the photo gallery. Thanks for sending it in and for giving us the background on it.

Under the Mudcat Cafe Letterhead, click "links", then click "bbc's Mudcat Resources" for lots of great pictures, including that of a man who actually blows up possum's asses while impersonating John Denver.

Now I'm gonna go check out General Banj's likeness...

Take a look at Molly Malone's picture, too. More stuff coming. I'm just in a bit of a crunch at work at the moment. Also, new photo on Winters Wages.

Sure, Mollie's a fine looking baby. Nice to have the average (old!!!) age of the 'Cat community brought down a bit.

Fancy Mollie's old mum to bits, though!

You're welcome. You gentlemen & ladies are actually quite an appreciative group. I enjoy keeping the site & get things up as quickly as my "real" life allows. I lag a bit on profiles, since I'm not as comfortable doing them (Sorry, Bob! Soon, I promise!).

Help - I still can't get there; I don't appear to have anything called "quick links" and even with all links searched there's no bbc resource.

there is also an updated mugshot of my self taken aboard my boat. Thanks so much bbc I did not expect you to be so swift making the changes. The other shot was taken at Quinn's many months ago and really shows Jim Nelson our banjo player up front..Im kind of hidden in the back ground Regards Winters Wages

Osmium - at the top of the thread page,just below the mudcat banner acros the top and just above the thread title and list of posters , there should be a box that says quick links in it. click on the down arrow at the right of the box, highlight bbc mudcat resources then click on the go button next to the box.

First, bbc I will check with Duane on that statement about "getting things up quickly."

But we do appreciate your hard work and try to tell you so because it was quite an undertaking and you've done a superb job.

Osmium...Go to the top of the page here and you should see a rectangular box labeled "Quick Links" with a "GO" next to it. Click on the arrow next to the GO and a pull down menu will appear. Highlight "bbc's Mudcat Resources" and click GO.

Hardiman and I are still searching the nether regions of the internet for the right photo of "us" to include. We want to be sure to be up to your standards, and some of your bbc real-folkie impersonations are really excellent. *BG*

I apologize for the delay but Hardiman is really fussy about these things. You know he has an image to maintain. (Me, I woulda just sent the Dolly Parton Autoharp photo by now.)

We're having a lot of fun looking, though.

I guess I should mention here that I have some pics on the site thanks to BBC. They've been up for a spell. The one is at Bent's Fort around 1830 or so. The other is with some friends at Homestead City in 1898. Yeah I'm old but I take care of myself. I'll have to hook up with Banjer sometime when I'm in the 1860's.

But I just wish a few more people would stick up a picture - in disguise even if they want to stay mysterious.

Lone Rangers, Batmen, bandits... Fancy dress. I grew my beard, but you can buy them in shops, or even draw them on in pencil on the photo.

McGrath, don't give people ideas. I have been known to be stuffy & refuse to put up some photos, if they don't meet my site criterion of identifying us to each other. It ought to be a fairly current photo, of reasonable visual quality, & not include a huge proportion of non-Mudcatters. I have even given my opinion, a time or two, that a photo wasn't very flattering & suggested that someone wait until s/he could send a better one. No intent to offend--hope I haven't--just a few silly standards I have (& it is my site). :)

Thank God for bbc, someone here actually pays attention to things making sense!!! *BG*

Confirms my sense that Mudcat is creative chaos rather than thoughtless anarchy.
