I start enumerating this afternoon! Please be polite to your census taker. They are not evil and will not ask about your money or guns. The actual questions I will be asking are not intrusive. You can read them at http://2010.census.gov/2010census/text/text-form.php. You can refuse to answer any questions you find objectionable.
Oh, and the IRS was telling the truth. They actually did deposit my refund in my bank this morning.
Hurray for that!
We sent our census forms in as soon as they were delivered, so I'm afraid you won't be asked to come here. Wish you were; it's beautiful right now, but a couple more weeks of dry and it won't be nearly as nice.

Enumerators usually work close to their home. The furthest house in my first set of addresses is within a ten minute walk from where I live.
I wish I could see your land too. Maybe next spring or later this summer. I even like the dry brown of summer. No matter how dead it seems, if you look close there's still cool stuff to see. I actually kind of like that.
When I was a hitchhiker, we got dropped off in Kansas in late fall (maybe October). It was as flat, dry and brown as could be. It seemed like hell to me. But no one would pick us up, so we got stuck there for a few days. After the second day my vision had "improved" and I could see reds and golds and bits of green. The ugly brown had become beautiful to me. I've never looked at a dry, brown field the same since.
The above reply is from me. I'm on my old computer and I didn't notice it had logged me out.
SO cool! I want to hear more.
