I work out of state a lot. It's the first question usually asked when people find out where I'm from. They never ask if I'm a polygamist though The Avatar is one of my favorite bands and has nothing to do with my screen name.

If it helps, my first thought was "Ogden, wonder if they work for that IRS service center where the 941 forms go?".

What's your story
My avatar is from the 12th century Lewis Chessmen found on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland in 1831. They are carved from walrus ivory. Mine is the rook, although most modern chess sets have the rook designed as a castle.

My ID is the Persian spelling of rook and was also the name of part of the Persian army in ancient times. The rukh was the small platform atop an elephant used by archers and is also the spelling of the gigantic bird of legend, the roc. In chess literature, the rook was know as the "old warrior," who, sensing an impending battle, would prepare to fight the good fight!

Mine are pretty much self explanatory to my way of frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor.
