I am from Boise Idaho, the land of the spuds. I have lived all over in Oregon, California, Nevada, and spent 5 years in Oklahoma ( a tiny place called Longdale). My brother (aka 'bleeding') still lives in Okla. in Norman. I have a really good friend that lives in Issaquah Wash. After living all over the place I finally came back home to Boise and will probably be here for at least the next 15 years. After that, hubby and I want to retire in Seaside or Newport Oregon.

How can you save me?

I'm in a place known to some
As the gateway to places beyond
Surrounded by the glory of moutain
At the shoreline of the deep blue ocean
This is where one can find me...

Arrite this should give it away

Hmmmmmmm WildChild... wonder if I know your brother... it's always weird to find people who live or have lived close to you (or even the same town as you) on here... boggles the mind. heh

From the coldest Nation's Capital in the world, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Home to the Ottawa Senators, Jean Chretien (I'm so very, very sorry), Matthew Perry, Alanis Morrisette and the longest skating rink in the world.
Summers average in the 80's, but can get as high as 100F+.  Winters average around the teens, but get as cold as -40F or colder.

London, Ontario ... surrounded by 3 of the great lakes ( no shortage of beaches )
We seem to get missed by a lot of the winter snow the past few years ( banana belt must have shifted )
but I'm not complaining!

Yeah, California... that's what I said in the first place.   Modesto, Ca to be exact - home of the venerable god of sci-fi: George Lucas. We even have an "American Grafitti" statue dedicated to him at the Five Points corner in the downtown area.

It's been so much fun reading all of your replies and where you all are from. And even learing a little bit about where you live!
Thank you all for responding to this thread.  

Happy Holidays to ALL!

Hi, well I live in Maidstone, which is in the county town of Kent, in England. South east and near the bottom. It used to be known as the Garden of England, now people say right the Channel Tunnel, and Eurostar. Where I live is opposite three orchards, pears and apples, and with the river about 500ft away.
Luckily it's downhill from me so during the floods I was safe. It's not exactly the most spellbinding place in the world, but there you go.
Take care

Take back the hope you gave,- I claim

Hey Dark Angel - I think we Aussies are outnumbered!
I live in a beautiful little town (pop 400) called Kenilworth which is a 40 min drive from Queensland's Sunshine Coast. So I have the best of both worlds. The bush I love and the city lights I need.


I wish you every happiness and pray you'll always have the best of the good things in life. a brand

I live in Valley Forge..about a 20 minute ride from Philadelphia.  There is only one main road that goes out into town, and it takes you through the heart of Valley Forge Park (George Washington used to hang out here in case ya didn't know!).  The drive can be VERY annoying at times b/c of all the tourists driving 10 MPH!!  Argh....  Anyhoo, I suppose I am lucky to have such a beautiful commute to work everyday (it's even more gorgeous when it snows

I currently live in Raleigh NC (hence the first part of my name)
I love this city! Let me put it this way I have lived in 6 states but I always come back here.
Raleigh is a grate city not to big, to small, and its right between the mountains and the beach.
I have lived in IL NH NC CO FL TX. This is my home because I like it here the best.

I am not always lonely even if I am always alone
