Hey Ren is a group administrator Hey Ren says:

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?

Omaha, NW area which is rapidly expanding and seeming less west.

Lived here 98% of my life.

3-What is your dream job?

Hmm, maybe a sociologist.

4-One of your favorite musicians?

Billie Holiday

5-Favorite cereal?

Mawhamba says:

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?

SW Omaha across the street from Sarpy County (in some odd corner where Ralston, La Vista and Omaha make some sick, magical connection).

2-What is your Omaha connection?

It's much like the Chinese Connection but with much less kung fu. I've lived here almost 12% of my life (which isn't saying much, I'm only 26) or 3 years.

3-What is your dream job?

Hoodoo witch doctor.

4-One of your favorite musicians?

Why one? Billie Holiday did rock, no doubt about that, but let's see, I'll be unique and say Norah Jones.

5-Favorite cereal?

I've been on a Total Raisin Bran kick for a while.

Millard

Been here 99.86% of my life and I drive to Omaha (all 2 miles) to do much of my shopping, go to my thankless slave driving job, and to take the kids to school.

That would be no job. If had to file a W2, I would say lottery winner or professional slot player

4-One of your favorite musicians?
Duran Duran dude

5-Favorite cereal?
I don't eat that sugar/carb filled diabetes causing crap (not to mention that I'm lactose intolerant and hate milk)

Dan Wroblewski says:

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?
South O... in one of those old renovated schoolhouses. Very cool...

2-What is your Omaha connection?
Spent most of my childhood in Bellevue... move to Santa Barbara in my early 20's to "find myself", but all I found was that the cost of living is way too high out there. Moved back completely broke (but I wouldn't change the experience for the world!) about 5 years later and been back ever since.

3-What is your dream job?
I have it... I'm a web designer and a teacher. I get to create and teach others to create as well.

4-One of your favorite musicians?
Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Pixies, and some Leonard Cohen every now and then

5-Favorite cereal?
Haven't eaten cereal for a long time, but now that you mention it I have a sudden craving for Crunch Berries!

2-What is your Omaha connection?
Lived here all my life....well almost. I guess when I was a baby we used to live in Ralston of La Vista or something. But I don't recall that so YAY OMAHA.

3-What is your dream job?
I'm looking to be a photojournalist...and if I'm adventurous enough maybe for National Geographic or something crazy like that.

4-One of your favorite musicians?
I'm lokin Blink 182 and any band spurred from that. They rock my socks.

sandi.k.barr says:

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?
Omaha, smack dab in the center of town near 90th and Dodge. If you're passing through the intersection M-F during working hours, I might be peering out on you from my little window on the world.

2-What is your Omaha connection?
I'm a native Nebraskan, lived in Omaha for 10 yrs, came to town to go to CreightonU and still haven't left.

3-What is your dream job?
Do we have to call it a 'job'? There are a lot of things I dream about doing from teaching to creating and everything in between. I love web development, but since I have a day job doing back-end development, don't get to do enough of it. I love mashups, really get my creative juices flowing.

4-One of your favorite musicians?
I've really been liking the new Bob Dylan album these days, but I'm glad you just asked for one because the list of favs goes on and on.

5-Favorite cereal?
CocoWheats, mmmmm....warm and creamy chocolatey goodness

jigarne says:

1. What part of Omaha do I live in?

Not sure where all the borders are in this town (still) I'd say Southeast or Central, but the whole city keeps on shifting around so I'll say around 50th and Grover.

2. What is my Omaha connection?

Moved here to attend UNO for Computer Engineering classes seven years later they spat me out with a B.A. in History and a minor in Math.

3. What is my dream job?

If that were easy to nail down I could maybe get on a track to get it. I'd like to wear a lot of different hats. History professor was the goal for a few years, but that requires a lot more school, being a writer (anywhere from technical to script) would be cool, photographer would be neat as well, professional celebrity with no real talent seems like it could be another neat option (though it would probably get old really quickly).

4. One of my favorite musicians?

Roger Clyne

5. What is my favorite serial (I don't eat breakfast cereal).

Probably Musashi.

From a trip to Seattle, I really like all the colors in the peppers:

Thought I had joined this group already, but I guess not. Most of my pictures on Flickr at the moment are centered around food. I'm a bit obsessed about food as evidenced by my blog and the Foodies of Omaha discussion board.

1. Live around 180th & Q St.

2. Came to Omaha for College, lived here for awhile, moved to San Francisco, then moved back to start a family.

3. My dream job would be to get paid to travel and eat.

4. I really have too many favorite musicians to pick one, but the most albums I have by any one artist would be Prince AKA O(+>

5. I actually like to mix my cereals. If I had to pick only one though, I'd probably choose Cookie Crisp.

The pic rated as most interesting in my stream, and one of my favorites, is this one.

Hi, I am Mary and I live in Bloomington MN now. We spent some time from 1986 to the mid 1990's in Bellevue Ne., My husband was stationed at Offutt AFB. My dream job is to pursue photography and retire with my husband in the next couple of years. My favorite music is 1940's big band style and my favorite cereal is Lucky Charms.

I only have a few photos of when we were in Nebraska, (i was busy raising kids at the time) and hope to make a roadtrip there sometime in the future.

Greetings:

I'm Ken. A native of LaCrosse, WI I moved here back in Oct 1991 from Rochester, MN. That was the year of a big xxs blizzard on halloween, and I thought MN winters were bad. Now that global warming has effectively ended that threat, I've warmed to Omaha. My wife and I have enjoyed the past 15years here.

I have a recurring dream of being Howard Buffett's financial advisor. However, as with most out there in flickr land I would enjoy being a recognized photographer, but I'll keep my day job, thank-you.I enjoy a wide variety of musical genres,including jazz and classical. I frequently listen to my 18 y/o son's Indie music and even went to Oberst's concert at the Holland Center (yeah, trying to relive my youth through my kids). My favorite artist/song is the late Warren Zevon who produced his last album The Wind just weeks before his death from cancer. Give a listen to "Keep me in your heart".

www.amazon.com/Wind-Warren-Zevon/dp/B0000AGWIK/ref=sr_1_7...

Favorite photographers include Henri Cartier-Bresson because he didn't care what people thought, Ansel Adams because of the thought he gave to post-processing, and Jerry Uelsmann because you never quite knew what he thought. Here's a link to see which famous photographer you might have been.

www.youthink.com/quiz.asp?action=take&quiz_id=164

I enjoy a cup of post-select grain cereal with pecans and 1/4 cup of raisons, but indulge in fruit loops every so often (I mentioned I have kids). I look forward to seeing what this Omaha group is about, and certainly have enjoyed the images so far.

Warm Regards, Ken.

1. I live in Midtown Omaha.

2. I've lived here my entire life, barring time spent going to UNL.

3. My job now is pretty rad. I design inflatable mascot costumes during the day, like Lil' Red for the Huskers. I spend my nights sewing monsters. (That's one of the pics of my monsters below.)

4. Musicians....listening to Why? these days, maybe a little Paul Simon, Vampire Weekend, or local stuff like Bear Country, Honeybee, Tilly and the Wall. But....you gotta check out Time Falcon. It's my brother's band. Rad name, no?

5. I don't eat cereal.

I'm Roy. I was brought to Omaha via the Air Force and married a Council Bluffs native. I've been here since 1990. I was born and raised in Burlington, Iowa. I'm a disabled vet so when I feel well I pursue photography. I am an amateur at photography. Recently I was asked for permission to use one of my photo's for an online tourism guide. They had me submit an online form along with the photo if I agreed to let them use it. The photo was taken at the Omaha Botanical Gardens a few years back. I gave permission and the photo is published in an online guide for the local area. The email i got is below with the picture they choose.

i'm very interested in geotagging -- especially shtetls in russia and poland, etc. i think google maps and google earth are amazing and are going to the wave of the future of genealogy.

Creations4Causes says:

Hi, I'm new to this group so I thought I'd jump in! :)

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?

I live in Bellevue, by the beautiful Fontenelle Forest. But I grew up in the Dundee neighborhood of Omaha.

2-What is your Omaha connection?

I was born in IA but raised from age 2 on in Nebraska. My hubs' family retired to Nebraska about 12 years ago, and I met him 10 years ago while we were both involved at the Grande Olde Players Theatre. My husband joined the Army after high school while I went to college, but we got back together halfway through and after I graduated we got married and moved to AZ (where he was stationed). All I can say after living only an hour away from Mexico is that it's great to be back in Nebraska again!

3-What is your dream job?

I'd love to finally finish the book/screenplay that I am writing and have it made into a multi-billion dollar movie! :) Then I could just write whatever and make more items for my Etsy online store:
Creations4Causes.etsy.com

4-One of your favorite musicians?

Hmm... The Eagles? I know that's more than one musician, but I do like them a lot. And Jars of Clay.

5-Favorite cereal?

Not a big cereal fan here, but I suppose I like multigrain Cheerios.

I don't have a whole lot of pictures posted to flickr (don't have a lot of time for that), but I do have pictures of my three cats in my Etsy shop banner, so if you get a chance please stop by and see how cute they are!

-Something Corporate
-All Time Low
-Underoath
-The Starting Line
-Silverstein
-Taking Back Sunday
-Jack's Mannequin
etc


5-Favorite cereal?
I sure do love me some peanut butter crunch!


A little about me...

I'm 22, other hobbies of mine include Guitar and reef aquariums! I love the beach and mountains, but its pretty rare in Nebraska.. bummer. I was born and raised in San Diego, so NE is a completely different lifestyle from what I grew up with. Most of my friends who move out here dont really like it. Me on the other hand, I LOVE IT! I go out to the lake and spend time with my fiancee's family. theyre like a family away from home! its good times out here! I can't see why people complain.

I'm a late-comer to the thread...

1-What city do you live in? If Omaha, what part of town?

Omaha - Benson area

2-What is your Omaha connection?

Moved here when I was a kid, from Memphis, TN origionally

3-What is your dream job?

Photographer for National Geographic :)

4-One of your favorite musicians?

Way too many to list currently. I listen to all kinds of music.

5-Favorite cereal?

Cinnamon Toast Crunch! ^_^

---

Aside from that, I do professional photography part-time and have my own company. I mainly get paid to do weddings, portraits, and events but occasionally get product shots, commercial photography, and custom assignments so I do a little bit of everything. My specialty is nature/outdoors/landscape/architecture photography but it is extremely hard to make money doing that hence the expansion into other areas. Also, I need to get a Flickr pro account and put a lot more stuff up. :)

I have a website tho it is pretty spartan... most of my advertising is word-of-mouth.

Currently live in my house in South O.

2-What is your Omaha connection?
I've grown up all over Omaha. I've lived South, West, Joslyn Castle, North-West... all over.

3-What is your dream job?
To volunteer my time all over. Mentoring at schools, doggy day cares, cleaning & organizing, helping, designing.. learning & teaching. Oh! And travel. If you could work travel in there too it would be perfect.

4-One of your favorite musicians?
That's complicated. I love everything from Ani Difranco to Metallica. I love the sound of a string quartet and I'll bust a move to some hip-hop beats.

5-Favorite cereal?
Oh's. Mad props if you are familiar with the Ambrosia of Cereals.

That's me, I guess. I'm hoping to come on Flickr related activities, especially when they are free! (I work for the school district, free is good.) :P
