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!!

Hi

I live just outside of London, England.

Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.  Have travelled around the World, spent lots of time in US and Australia, but I am always happy to come home.

Love Lizzie

Hi!

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).

Cheers,

I'm originally from Gloucestershire, for anyone who likes Royalty near Price Charles and for those who like true crime, my boyfriend lived round the corner from Fred West (mass Murderer).

I now live in Cardiff, the welsh capital!.

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.

Seems like there's a lot of Michigan folks!  Is there something in the water up there that causes knee problems?  ;)
