    I was born in Oakland, California and raised for the most part in Berkeley, with a year in Lexington, Massachusetts, and a year in Oxford, England.  I lived in Arizona briefly as a teen, and more recently in the Dallas area of Texas.  Now I'm back in the Bay Area, and don't plan on leaving.  We're spoiled out here!!!

    The international members (and some from the Deep South, which apparently counts as a foreign place!) have just posted their locations in the "Where in the world ..." thread, so they are unlikely to pop up again on this one. You might like to go look them up over there.

    I'm pretty much a lifelong Washington state resident, mostly near Seattle. I also spent a little over a year in Wisconsin, but I was an infant at the time. And, no, it doesn't rain up here as much as most people think. It's just gray a lot, especially this time of year.

    I don't know how in the world to answer this question, really. Do you mean this year, last year, or tomorrow? And yet, I still couldn't give a good answer. BUT I did grow up in Ohio and all of my family roots go WAY back in Kentucky. So I guess that's how I 'll answer.

        You DID get out of Michigan just in time. The job market there is absolutely dreadful. And I'm looking forward to going to Texas, but I will miss my little town in Georgia. We lived in Texas for almost a year in Dallas, and I loved it. The whole Texas pride thing is great.

          I went back to Michigan last year, it is sooo depressing, it was like a ghost town with everything closing down... soooo sad!
