I am curious; does a member's avatar affect your perception of what that person is like?  For instance, do you perceive me to be wooden and cranky?  If I changed my avatar to a picture of Chuck Norris would you think me to be a kick-ass brewer?

"wooden and cranky"?  No, whenever I see your avatar, I just get Brady Bunch flashbacks.

Didn't your mother tell you, "Your face will freeze like that."  I need to do some change up with my 'tar.

I took that picture of some art on the wall at the McMennamins St. Francis Inn in Bend, Oregon.  That was easier than finding a good picture of me.
