Hi Emily,

I'm from the North East of England...James Herriot country for anyone who has read the books or watched the TV series!  ;D

Love.......Jo

P.S. Although I'm actually English, most of my Australian friends and family reckon that I have Aussie mentality and should actually have been born down under instead! I guess I'm just a misplaced Australian really!  ;)

Hehe this should be an interesting thread Emily!  Great idea!  Well I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but moved to where I live now, in Cincinnati, Ohio (The most boring city in the world by the way) when I was 8.  Can't wait to hear where everyone else is from!  I don't know the specifics I just generally know what country people are from...should be interesting to get a bit more detail and a better perspective of where they are!!

I live in New York about 1 hour east of New York City out on Long Island. It's definitely interesting to see where everyone is from because like Rachel said, I have a good idea of what country people are from but not the specifics of where.

I grew up in northern lower Michigan (on Higgins Lake, for anyone who knows the area), then moved to Bellefonte, PA, to attend grad school at Penn State and have decided to settle in the area.  For now, I work in metro D.C. (Silver Spring, MD).

I grew up in Brighton, Michigan (45 min outside Detroit), moved to Downingtown, Pennsylvania (outside Philadelphia), went to college at Virginia Tech (outside Roanoke), and then joined the Army for 6 years.   During that period I lived in North Carolina, Texas, Alabama, and spent 4 years in Germany (which I really enjoyed.)    After leaving the military I moved to Utah (My husband and I are obsessed with skiing and figured it would be a good place to live.)

Born in Waynesboro PA, lived most of my life in Pittsburgh, PA. Joined the Army, stayed in for 12 years, living in Georgia, Kamsas, South Carolina, North Carolina and 6 1/2 years in Worms, Germany. The torn PCL ended my military career. I lived in Cincinnati immediatly after my discharge from the Army, then moved to Newark, OH, then to Houston Texas, where I live now.

Sarnia!  I've been there lots!  In high school, we used to have a yearly trip to Stratford and we stayed in Sarnia on the way out.  Then in college, my parents lived in Vermont and I'd pass through there to drive over for a visit.  Neat :).

There does seem to be an unusual number of Michiganders here (and Pennsylvanians, too)... we can't blame walking on uneven ground, since Michigan is pretty flat.  Water?  Too much wading through deep snow drifts?  Large temperature swings aggravating our pain?  Who knows :).  I was also born in the Detroit area (Plymouth, for those who know the area)... Lord knows it could be something funky in the air/water/ground there :).

Cheers,
Barb :)

I live in the southeastern corner of Alabama in Dothan.  I actually live in a great place because I'm 1 1/2 hours from the Gulf of Mexico, 4 from Atlanta, and 7 from Disneyworld!  

I love how we are from different countries as well as states.  For all the European folks.....does the government really pay for healthcare?  If so, what about the expensive meds.  I wish our gov't would do that.  My family is just middle-class.  We have great insurance, but I am about to get married, and the only insurance my work offers is 80% they pay and 20% for me to pay.  20$ of my medicine is more than I make in a month!!  Enbrel by itself is $1200/month, not to mention the other 8 perscriptions I have.

Thank you all for listening!!

Hey Heather M. I noticed that you mentioned living in Laguna Beach, and being a complete motor sport nut I wondered did you ever manage to get to the race track at Laguna Seca? Wow, that is a really cool circuit with the corkscrew turn!!

If you're not a motor sport fan and haven't clue what I'm on about I apologise!! If you are and did, then I'm very jealous!!  ;)

Dcakes - don't give up on your dream of travelling mate. I didn't think I'd be able to continue my travelling after I got sick, but I've actually been to Australia on crutches twice now and plan to go back again very soon hopefully. So keep dreaming anything can happen!!  :)

I'm a resident of Melbourne Australia, fifth generation Anglo-Celtic/Scandinavian.  When I was younger I lived up in the Dandenongs (foothills to the Great Dividing Range) about twenty miles East of the city.  

For the past thirty years we have lived in Hawthorn (an inner suburb) about three miles from the actual centre of Melbourne and about which the entire universe revolves I am sure!  We have every conceivable ammenity, churches, schools, parks, shops and transport all within easy gimping distance.  

Autumn (Fall) in Melbourne is possibly its most beautiful season, the days are mild and the nights cold.  Because of the early settlers' attempts to make Australia a Southern Hemisphere version of England we have many deciduous trees and the reds, golds and greens are at their most vivid.

I just can't understand why anyone would want to live anywhere else!

Hi, all.  Here's another Michigander, but about 470 miles north of Detroit, up here on Lake Superior, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Well, Janet, we do have medical care up here, but not exactly easy access!! :D    

The local population call themselves Yoopers, coming from U.P. (Upper Peninsula).  It's a whole 'nother world, but after 18 years and raising 2 kids here, I love it. (Even though we only just have beginnings of leaves on the trees, no kidding.)

BTW, once Rand McNally Map publishers printed a map of Michigan leaving the UP out, and a few years ago, one of our teachers won Michigan Teacher of the Year Award.  When she went downstate to receive her award, they, too, gave her a placque (sp?) without the Upper Peninsula!!

Hiya

I'm from Galashiels, in the Scottish Borders, which is just under 40 miles south of Edinburgh. It's a medium-sized town with not much going on - the only good thing about it, as they say, is the road leading out of it! The people are unfriendly and you can't get a decent restaurant or clothing store unless you go up to Edinburgh or all the way down to Carlisle. Hence why most of my shopping is done on the Internet! We're so small we only got Broadband this year...and most of the surrounding towns don't even have it yet!

Err...remind me why I still live here?

Hi, everyone  :)

I'm originally from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in NE England; moved to Solihull, near Birmingham, Central England, at 3 and have been here for the past sixteen years.  I'm starting my BA at the University of Cardiff in Wales in September this year.

Re. the Michigan links... I have a few friends at Umich over there and worked there on a theatre project for a couple of weeks when I was 17.  Had the time of my life  :)

I lived in Birmingham UK since I was born in December 1978. Birmingham is the 2nd largest City after London so is fairly large City. I lived in the same Suburb all my life and only moved once to another house in same area.

Its worth a visit if you enjoy shopping as it has the largest shopping Centre/Mall in Europe that was only built last year called the Bullring Shopping Centre. It also has good nightlife with plenty of Bars and Night Clubs, and traditional English Pubs. If you enjoy curries there are plenty of top class Indian Restaurants that Birmigham well known for. So thats just a few things I thought I share with Members about my Home Town, Nick  :){2004}:)

Born and raised in Hampton & Newport News, Virginia and now have been living in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina for about 11 years now.

Kill Devil Hills is right on the ocean and I live about 1.5 miles north of the spot where Orville & Wilbur Wright took their first flight.  Very pretty area, but very crowded with tourists during the summer months.

I came to Europe to play basketball and did so until my knee quit.  Which was when I was 40 so I got some good years in.  I have spent the last 3 and a half years looking for a solution to my knee, and I found it on this board.

Hi everyone.....I just registered yesterday after finding this site last week (I'm in the middle of a bad flare up....no sleep 3 out of 5 nights...rt knee drained rt hip and knee shot up with cortisone and xylocane.)...5 surgeries later including a 5 hr Maquet and I'm still dumb enough to help someone move last Sat.......nobody said ex-ruggers were smart ..... I  feel so much better reading thru some of the posts in here..less alone and able to more easily laugh and get thru the rough spots...you guys rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

I work for a small web co. in NYC... a start up....a lot of sitting at the desk and staring at the PC checking stats, confirming content..etc (of course like most of you I get up and down quite often to stave off stiffness...)

As of today, I'm a member of this illustrious site and this is my very first message!

I live in Dartmouth, Devon, UK.  It's rather damp here - not good for the knees at all.  It's also rather steep which make going down hill difficult, so a bit of a double whammy for knees!!!  

I blame my dad - he was always hauling us up mountains (not climbing, just walking) and even as a youngster, I hated going back down, because my knees hurt.  Also did a lot of free and jazz dance when I was younger with lots of hurling myself to the ground! ::) ::) ::)  So it's hardly surprising I have knee problems.

Steel city. Check your knives and forks. Very likely they could have been made here :P

Most of you have probably heard of or seen the film The Full Monty. Which was also filmed here. Some was filmed outside my school at the time and it took them a few hours to film a short scene because we kept running up and screaming around the cameras and generally being annoying :P

Also had a film called When Saturday Comes filmed here. It is a Football (Soccer) film and I was among the extra's for it :P I'm in the crowd somewhere. Can see me in parts because I was only little and my sister and her bf were holding me up and you can just see me cheering :P

I'm half scottish on my mum's side

Although if you trace my family back im originally Scottish on my dad's side and Irish on my mum's. Genetically im the perfect Alcohol consumer ;)

Not FROM Scotland, but Scottish!!!  Glasgow is one of my fav places on earth...I was really homesick for my family one Christmas when I was living in London.  Went to visit an old bf's fam in Glasgow -- it is so very much like Pittsburgh in layout, size, geography...and the friendliness of the people!  It was just what I needed -- I wasn't nearly as sad not to be with the fam when I was somewhere that reminded me of home!

I'm in the North East of England, not far from Captain Cook's birthplace and Dracula's castle "Whitby"

I don't know if someone responded to a past question about UK healthcare, but,
yes it is free, however this means we might wait for a bit longer than you guys in the states, it's a 3 month wait for my ACL op, but we can opt to pay for a private op, but it was gonna cost me £3000 (@ $5500).

I've been lucky enought to visit 9 US states, it'll be 10 this summer. I worked for Major League Soccer Camps (NASC) during my summers when at University.

I was born and I lived in Brentwood for forty years of my life. That's in Essex which is in the south east of England. Brentwood is a twenty first century ghost town ? Which has so little to show for its self. No wonder it became known as the most boring town in England. Brentwood even had a book about the many ghosts in its town. Where did that book go ? Like the rest, it was flushed down the toilet.

  I would think that living in England on near by would be intresting and intruiging. Lush green country side? Brick buildings and cobblestone roads? No? Yes? In B.C. where I am it is all country full of trees, water and wildlife. If you love the waterfalls, this is the place that is world known. Wells Gray Park. Spahats, Helmcken, and Dawson falls. Lots of hiking, canoeing, and biking. The fishing is awesome! Snowmobiling and skiing in the winter. Ice fishing too so long as you don't mind the cold weather. It can be in the minus at times.

Hope I didn't confuse you too much. ;D

People always make fun of where i'm from, mainly cause of the county name (Fauquier County) and it always smells (lots of farms everywhere, and cows, and horses). there aren't any malls in the county, or any movie theaters so there's not much to do for fun other than get into sports (for me it's marching band) or go watch football games at one of the 2 high schools. The town is small, but i love it. 8)

yea, it does depend on what season for the way it smells. like right now, when i ride the bus home, it smells really really bad but i'm used to it, but it still smells like poo lol.

Hi Debs,

I spend about a year to eighteen months out of two years afloat, most people seem to think sailing is like sitting in the cockpit with a sundowner whereas I know it's doing maintenance in exotic places with no chandlers. I come to the UK on average once a year to get a dose of reality and seeing friends and family.

Hi I also live just outside london, just wondered how you find the healthcare where you are, as basically where I live it sucks!!!!!!!!!! If it was not for my cousin being an orthapedic consultant I would not have got anywhere. I have had my 1st shot of cortisone last saturday and guess what.... very little relief. At the moment I am having more bad days than good and am feeling very down about the whole situation. I suppose i thought arthritis was for the old, not the under 50's......but hey who deals the cards right. :(

Here's a link to my area:

Caroline, I had a look at the Danbury website. It isn't twinned with Stockport in England by any chance, is it? Stockport is just outsided Manchester and was the centre of hat making same as Danbury, and has a hat museum which I have been round.

http://www.hatworks.org.uk/default.asp

Title: Re: Where do you live?
Post by: Caroline109 on April 12, 2008, 10:18:51 PM
Chris, I don't think it is, despite the similar hatting industry histories. I did some research and all I could find was that it has a sister city in Italy! My family only moved to Danbury in the 1980s but Danbury itself has had a long hatting history which is basically dead now. However, hatting still comes into play here. The city's nickname is "the hat city" and the high school athletic teams are the Hatters (2 of my sons were Hatters, on the track team). In addition, the high school's symbol  is the Mad Hatter! There is a museum in town (you might have seen about it on the site) that has a large hatting industry display  I took my sons to when they were kids.

Hi  :)

I live in a small town about 40 minutes drive outside Dublin, Ireland. I am originally from nearly the centre of Dublin so I miss the location especially when I can't get a cheap taxi home after a night out in Dub! boo. ???

I grew up in a few places..moved from Ireland to Urbana-Champagne when I was 5, moved back home a year later, then moved to Wassenaar in Holland when I was 12 for a year, moved back to Ireland and went to school in Dublin, after school my family moved to a small town in Kildare (the county just next door)..it's very pretty especially when it's snowing like it is now! living at home again while I am recouperating and jobless...

Also lived in Vancouver, Canada for a while back in '05.
Was meant to move to Spain for the year as part of my college course back in Nov '08; I was due to fly out the week after my knee dislocated. Timing, huh?
I lost my job in Spain, but now I've made new plans and hope to go to NYC for a few months this Spring/Summer/as soon as my damned knee sorts itself out.  I love travelling so much  :D

Looking at this site makes me realise how rubbish my knowledge of USA geography is! Half the time when people put the abbreviation for their state I can't work out what it stands for! And I never cease to be amazed at how far people in the US are prepared to travel to see a good OS! I've read threads where people are prepared to drive 8 hours to see their chosen OS...in England if we had to drive more than about 45 minutes to get anywhere we'd think twice about it and probably complain! And if we drove for 8 hours we'd fall into the sea!!   ;D

Hi Natalie
I am from Greenock our claim to fame is being the wettest place in Scotland.  feels like it most of the time
I love it here some great walks along the banks of the clyde Just need the knee sorted to make the most of it lol
Take care Tez

Post by: Natalie.D on February 09, 2010, 09:25:57 PM
Hi Tez,

Isn't all of Scotland the wettest place, lol, it certainly seems like it at times.  I've dived the Clyde, some great diving there believe it or not and its not all shopping trolleys as you would imagine, lol.

I know what you mean, we've got some fantastic walks in the Borders and 4 dogs to walk but it can be hard sometimes getting out and about if the knees are playing up more than usual. 

Natalie.  ;D

I'm in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada. Moved here from the UK five years ago and have never regretted it for a second. :) I love Vancouver - it's amazing to be able to live in a big city and yet have the mountains, ocean and forest right there on our doorstep. Got my Canadian citizenship just over a year ago, so I'm definitely here for keeps. :)

Being stuck in bed post-accident and pre-op for a comminuted patella fracture, I have just spent hours reading this thread. Feel I must join in after all that!
I'm originally from Ireland, not far from Dublin, now living in Korea, not far from Seoul! Very interesting to read the intros of knee sufferers from such far flung places! A bizarre forum I never imagined existed, but so comforting at the moment and full of lovely supportive people.

Lived in Toronto, Canada, for 19 years.
Moved to Denver, Colorado, this summer and as luck has it, I'm very close to the famous Steadman Clinic, as 5 months after arriving here, it looks like, out of the blue (not really), I will need some major repairs to my right knee (moderate-sized horizontal tear of the medial meniscus posterior horn, mild medial compartment osteoarthritis, mild patellofemoral osteoarthritis with moderate chondrosis).
