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!

I'm a grumpy old bear with a busted knee.  The growling you hear is my tummy rumbling!

I've been to Dandeonong - my Aunt and Uncle used to live there.  Also my Nana and Papa lived in Noble Park and my other Aunt and Uncle lived in Dingley - I think - small world - eh?  ;D

I live in Lafayette, LA, which is about two hours east of New Orleans.  I grew up in Baton Rouge, but now have my own little family here.

I was born in Woolwich, London.

Moved to Oxfordshire at about 8 or 9

Then East Sussex at 10

Stayed there until last Year when I moved to West Yorkshire.

So I've lived in a large city, then a small country village then large coastel town, and now small town in the country.

Would list my knees history, but there just aint enough characters. Lets just say my knees are knackered.

I grew up in Bay Village, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. But for the last 15 years, we have lived in Farmington Hills, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Yes, there are a lot of Michiganders on this board. Weird! At least there is easy access to a lot of good medical care here.

Torn quad tendon repair & VMO advancement 4/99, MUA with LOA 10/99, Patella baja and arthrofibrosis, LR & medial release & LOA 5/01, LOA & chondroplasty 6/03,TKR on 11/06, MUA 12/06. From perfect knees to a TKR in 7 years, all from a fall on a wet floor...and early undiagnosed scar tissue.

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!!

5/4/02 struck by drunk driver. bilateral tibial plateau fractures. 10/02 scope for scar tissue, bad ROM  2/03 repeat procedure. still lousy ROM in right knee.

I live in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada...the litte tiny speck on the very eastern seaboard of North America, but Halifax is a pretty big city. I live in Halifax most of the time with MOm and Dad, as my knees just don't let me do much else for long, I have lived in Milton, Kemptville, Meaford and Algonquin park in Ontario,  Annapolis and Chelsea Nova Scotia, and I now live between Halifax with Mom and dad, and Springhill NS with my boyfriend and my horse. :)
I love Canada, Public health care all the way
