Here are this week's Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations:
@wkfd - WKFD is the Twitter account for the Kung Fu Drafter blog. They are drafters and geeks trying to share information with people with similar interests. I highly recommend visiting The Kung Fu Drafter blog, as it is a fun site and full of information too! If you get a chance read the CAD: Leap Over the Bar of System Requirements ... blog post.
@iPinda - Edward's Twitter bio says "CAD specialist, AutoCAD trainer and Civil 3D addict" and if you visit his Civil 3D Peanuts blog, you'll discover that he's also a part-time freelance AutoCAD trainer and full time CAD application administrator for an international AEC company. If you get a chance, read his Bentley’s SELECTseries 1 reading Civil 3D DWG blog post.
@CADRelations - CAD Relations website is an "Engineers Online Portal" for CAD, Engineering, Architecture, Community, Motorsports and Design, including Autodesk and Bentley software, which they proudly shout from the rafters "that is what we love and live for!!" I love the passion that they bring to the industry. Check out their Applications for Autodesk solutions post.
@JohnEvansDesign - John's Twitter bio says "Autodesk Inventor and Civil 3D professional dedicated to new and cutting edge uses for the Autodesk Design platforms". This week I enjoyed his post, Civil 3D – Default Site makes for bad habits, and I think you will too. Please read his post and take care in how you use AutoCAD Civil 3D Sites - Interaction is good when you want it to happen.
@ryanpconnolly - Ryan, according to his Twitter bio is Junior Estimator for George Stone & Sons Ltd. And a Civil Engineering student. Although I think today is his last day there, where I know he became a master and guru of concrete calculations and use of the all powerful spreadsheet! I wonder, will the spreadsheet become the slide rule of tomorrow?
@Indydrafter - Bryan is a knowledgeable resource for CAD tips, tricks, jobs, news, and is "The Indypendent Autodesk Resource!" If you get a chance visit his website and blog, Indydrafter.com, which is chock-full-of Autodesk information. Do check out Bryan's The Indydrafter Guide to Civil 3D Workstations post. There's lots of great information there if you're in the market for a new workstation.

@envisioncad - The Envision Group has the great tag line of "SEE The CAD Possibilities"; I love that. They are all about "Empowering you with the ability to improve your efficiency and maximize your investment in CAD technology. MicroStation training, AutoCAD Civil 3D customization, InRoads training, and more!" Love that, too!
@ReedConstrData - Reed Construction Data provides national, regional and local construction industry project, cost, product & economic information and services. Do visit their fantastic website Reed Construction Data where you can learn more about them, what they do, and do, also, visit their resources pages, too.
@C3DReminders - Christopher's Twitter bio says "Civil 3D Blogger, Civil Engineer" -right to the point, I like that. If you get a chance, read is his post, One Vertical Curve for Sag and Crest. This is an older post, but a good one, and it will give you a brush-up on how "To have one style for sag and crest vertical curves with and without high and low points. So you can just have on main label style for sag and crests".
@LivingRheum - I've saved the best for last, again, - My wife Jo-Ann. For 10 years she has been struggling with what was diagnosed as Rheumatoid Arthritis. After reassessing her condition, care, and treatment, she took the bold step of questioning her supposed "health care" and sought alternate (but logical) explanations for what was happening to her. Long story short, Jo-Ann has recently been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, rather than Rheumatoid Arthritis. To see her strength, day in and day out, and will to get healthy is amazing. She writes a wonderful blog called LivingRheum, which you should visit and read her Misdiagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): My Lyme Disease Story post.
That's a wrap!
