I think you all know where I live. If not you can Google Sandfire on google earth or look up a map of OZ and look halfway between Port Hedland and Broome. That tiny dot is my village. I'm curious to know where you all live so if it is permissable could you each put your state or town when you post? That is if your fingers aren't too frozen to type!!!:lol2:

Stay safe and enjoy your day. Grace are you OK? Michael:wavey:

Los Angeles, California, USA. It is a big city but we have our own local community. We see our neighbors at church, supermarket and farmrs market, school, and community events. I'm only a little more than 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean. I can walk or ride a bike.

I spent my childhood in wheat farming country just a few miles from an Oklahoma town. It is about a 45 minute drive into town so nowhere near as remote as you are.

I took this picture as I was leaving my aunt's house a couple months ago. It looks as it did when I was a kid running, playing, and imagining.

I used to live where they have tornados and flash floods.

Now I live where we have earthquakes, fires, mud slides, and traffic.

And nice weather.

I've been in St. Petersburg, FL for the last 17.5 years. It's a very nice mid-sided town that is part of the Tampa Bay metro area which is about 2 million people. The county I live in has the most people per sq mile than any county in FL. It's a peninsula with limited space and 900,000 people cramed in.

I'm an Army brat and have lived in Alaska, North Carolina and Bangkok, Thailand. I call North Carolina "home" where I was raised for the most part of my latter childhood.

I live in a town called Methuen ; on the border of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. about 30 minutes from Boston, 40 minutes from the ocean, and 90 minutes from the white mountains. Love that we have all that so close to home. HATE the cold. but, I was born near Syracuse NY so this is a little better!!

Thank you all for replying. Many more I hope:up:

As a history/geography buff, I just love learning about other people and where they live.

I have a pretty good perspective of the US especially the East and West coasts but in the middle is a bit vague for me.:uhoh3:

Tweety, I had it worked out that you were in Florida and Sabby are you in North Carolina? I know where Grace lives and pray she and her family are all safe.:redbeathe

Take care my friends Michael:zzzzz Bedtime

Georgetown, Tx. It is 26 miles north of Austin, the state capitol.

I grew up in a small town called Pflugerville. The road looked a lot like the one that herring showed us.

In the Inland Empire, midway between LA and Palm Springs.

30 min from the mountains, 1 hr from So Cal beaches, 1 hr from the desert (Joshua Tree).

Don't like the 110+ degrees in the summers (smog has been better these past few years, though), but the rest of the seasons (2 weeks of spring and perhaps 3 wk of fall ;) ) are great!

Grew up in SF Bay area (San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto [the poor side ;)]), spent summers in Northern CA (Gridley) with grandparents, aunt/uncle and cousins.

Michael, I live on the western edge of Chicago in Oak Park.Lots of history here, Frank Lloyd Wright had his studio and Ernest Hemingway did his writing here. As close as you can be to the western parts of Chicago and not be in the city itself. But parking is pretty tight and land is pretty expensive.

Oak Park isn't too far from where I grew up in LaGrange Highlands. An unincoporated western suburb of Chicago which was first developed in the 1950's. Not a particularly exciting place but not quite as plain as the newer suburbs. And little crime or trouble parking, and not too far from the city.

When I was in school I lived in Carbondale IL and Greenville NC. I've also lived for a while in Madison, WI

Grace just posted on the morning thread but she didn't say how she was feeling.

I'm in MAINE.

I keep wanting to find some kind of a map so I can map where all my friends live, ie on Facebook. But I haven't found a program I'm happy with. Have you found anything like that?

nice to meet you, I've been here since 03 and have enjoyed reading your posts of late (just kinda came back)

Good morning, all. I downloaded a map of the US on Wolfram Alpha so I can pinpoint you all. Google should be able to do the same. Liddle, you should be able to get a map of Maine the same way.:)

For some reason, I always thought Indiana was way out West. My interest in Indiana is that it is the home og Cummins, the engine builders---legendary engines they are.

Woke up during the night to the sound of beautiful rain. Got one inch which will help my shredded garden regrow.:yeah:

Hooroo al Michael
