IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN VERY LONG AGO AS YOU ARE VERY YOUNG YET, AS IS THE USA AT AROUND 230 YEARS OLD

AGEING IS INTERESTING AS IN MANY WAYS YOUR BRAIN STILL THINKS YOU ARE YOUNG NO MATTER HOW OLD YOU GET, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL BUT THEN I HAVE ONLY BEEN AROUND 59 YEARS 11 MONTHS. A YOUNG CUTE HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE GIRL STILL LOOKS GOOD TO ME BUT ALL I DO NOW IS LOOK. I STILL LIKE TO DO THE THINGS I ALWAYS LIKED AND STILL DO THEM BUT SLOWER AND FOR SHORTER PERIODS OF TIME
ITS AMAZEING HOW MUCH THINGS CHANGE IN A LIFETIME MY GRANDPARTENTS WHO I KNEW LIVED UNTIL I WAS 17 AND THEY CAME DOWN TO OKALHOMA IN A HORSE DRAWN WAGON FOR THE LAND RUSH. WHEN I WAS BORN JET AIRCRAFT WERE EXPERIMENTAL AND RARE MILITARY ONLY LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE FLYING AROUND NOW, EVEN INTO SPACE. YOU YOUNGER ONES HAVE A LOT OF CHANGE TO LOOK FORWARD TO, MAY THEY ALL BE FOR THE BETTER.

BACK TO TOPIC (AGE DOES SEEM TO MAKE YOUR MIND WANDER ) THIS HAS TURNED OUT TO BE A INTERESTING POST AND GIVES A IDEA OF THE WIDE RANGE OF COUNTRYS AND INFORMATION WE HAVE TO DRAW ON AND THE OTHER AGE POST SHOWS THE RANGE OF AGES. IT IS ENCOURAGING TO SEE THAT THERE ARE YOUNG PEOPLE INTERESTED IN COLLECTING AND LEARNING AS WE ALL DID.

Absolutely, someone recently sent a note on "turning the clock back 100 years - to USA 1906, and it's amazing to be reminded of phenomenal changes in just 100 years which I've already lived 49 years plus.

From the times of my greatgrandparents/grandparents (immigrants from Tianjin and CangZhou, China) until now much cultural changes have taken place, and I could only be reminded in nostalgia of some of the discontinued things by the CCTV programmes...even the food taste/smell different, a different world indeed.

I've started collecting some ethnographic stuffs beginning in 2000, so I guess age is not a factor, just the madness...

And Barry, a cute young lass looks good to me too...

A native born Oregonian who will retire in two to five years in Montana, since Oregon is now the northern most county in California.

A dedicated Martini rifle collector with no interest in edged weapons at all. Working a special assignment for a couple of years in South Africa before retiring. Simply meeting friends requests for "Zulu Spears". Found a Zulu hunting spear, East African small game spear and Zande Spear. All of which are far to good for my friends and I will keep for myself. I will go to the Curio shop and get spears for my friends.

Just located two Maasi Spears. I should get them...

Did I mention I have no interest in edged weapons...

Yeap, you are wright. Most of the people in the forums think the same for me.
I just happen to be a Greek who loves the Chinese and Indonesian Archipelago's culture and tradition

Take care

Born and raised in the South Island of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Grandparents hailed from the Scottish Borders, so I guess one could label me a tight fisted Kiwi.

Hi From the Emerald Isle (Ireland)
I do not know if there are any others here from Ireland
I would think there has to be as I have been bid against at auctions so there are some other ethnic weapon collectors around.
Regards to the rest of the world

First time I see this thread. Nice.
I am an atheist from the holy city of Jerusalem (or Al Quds, if you prefer).
My family came from Hungary and I am married to a Dutch woman. I lived in the Netherlands for many years and speak the language, so I consider it my second home.

Filipino living in Manila, Philippines, 33.
Engaged in studying my country's traditional blades for academic and martial purposes.
It's ironic that most of my country's most prized and well-preserved traditional blades are in foreign shores. I hope that changes someday.

I am from the capital of Russia, Moscow.
The area of my hobbies is the arms of China and Vietnam. I also became interested in subjects from mainland Southeast Asia.
Sometimes I drink vodka and I have a "ushanka" hat (but made in Finland ).

Hi,
Caledonia born and bred although Ulster Irish (County Antrim) on my mothers side and Norwegian on my fathers side. It's refreshingly heartening to see so many from divergent backgrounds get on together in relative harmony
My Regards,
Norman.
