I live in Columbia, Missouri. Home of the Mizzou chant, and the Missouri T I G E R S Football!! Lets Go T I G E R S!!!!!!! My College was founded in 1839, and is one of the oldest colleges in America. Thomas Jefferson's tomb stone in located on our school's campus, and we were the first school to start the "Homecoming" tradition. I was born in Rota, Spain. Seeing how I was a Marine brat, I was raised in both North and South Carolina, in Butte, Montana and in Tipton, Missouri.
How about you?
My Uncle's a retired prof at the University there. Political Science.
I'm living in Bishop, Ca.
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia. Currently living in Chilliwack, British Columbia - fondly referred to as "the Wack" by locals.
San Francisco, CA! There's too much to write about it, so I ended up writing hubs based on this beautiful city
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada east coast
Live in Toronto [yuk] Ontario Canada
Born in Sheffield, England, lived near Cardiff Wales for thirty years - moved to Manchester, NJ, USA and lived here for the last 13 years.
Manchester's only clame to fame (apart from having a couple of Olympic Gold Medalists) is that it is close to Lakehurst Naval Base where the Hindenberg sadly crashed.
Hey, thats interesting. I didn't know it was there. I'm shocked. Being an arrogant American, I thought it surely had to of happened here in the USA. Wow, well to me that is great information to share.
You also have Manchester United don't you?
The Hindenburg did crash in the US. "Manchester, NJ, USA," he said.
There is a Manchester in England as well.
Southeast Michigan, born and raised. Roots in Iowa, where we visited every summer, and in Germany, where were visited about three times ever. I hope to visit again soon.
I regard my too-brief time living in Ireland as some of the happiest of my life before meeting my wife.
I grew up in Twickenham, Middlesex, and have lived in Bayswater, London for the past 11 years with my husband and two young children.
Born in texas; raised in Missouri and Arkansas.Worked in Michigan for about 6 years. Got back to Houston Tx as fast as I could. Been here ever sence. living out in the suburbs.
Born in Tulsa, but my parents moved to Florida before I was old enough to walk.. I lived in Naples, then moved to St. Petersburg to go to college. After that, I did some traveling, ended up in Chicago for a couple years, then finally came back to Oklahoma. Good times.
Arthur do you say "Fall Rivah"? lol
Massachusetts. Also lived in Rhode Island and upstate New York.
From Garden City, Michigan. Home of the very first Little Caesars Pizza, and K-Mart Store.
Born in Birmingham (Birmingham, England not Birmingham, Alabama) to an English father and German mother. Have lived in the South East of England for most of my life though, apart from about seven years in London.
Hi everyone im from Carlisle in England,
My mother is Scottish and my father was Dutch I lived in Arnheim in the Netherlands until I was 4
Carlisle is at the top of the lake district its the most beautiful part of britain
I think but then again I could just be biased lol
The Lake District is very beautiful -- I've had a few holidays there, and would go back any time.
I agree camlo, its the best part of britain.
I love fell walking, up into the mountains and seeing the valleys which are unspoiled and cant be built on thanks to beatrix potter for stopping the developers from buying the land lol
It never fails to impress me lol
Beatrix Potter is from there? I learn something new every day on HubPages
Well originally london but she made her home in the lake district and its where she wrote all the story books in the lakes.
Her house is a museum in keswick I think and there is a beatrix potter shop in every town in the lake district and statue to her too I forget where now but yeah she is an icon of the lake district lol
I've been to Keswick, so I ought to know. Hmmm ... And I thought I had a good memory.
mine is no better, but i can remember where i live so thats not too bad lol
I was born in Alabama and live in Johnson City, Tennessee. Claims to fame in this area are Bristol Motor speedway for those who like Nascar and The National Storytelling Festival for those who like hearing tales.
Sadly, I've never left my hometown of Madison WI, but that's okay. I like it here.
A little known fact about Madison: Otis Redding died when his plane crashed in Lake Monona in Madison WI.
I live near Portsmouth in Hampshire - The UK one, not the US 'copy'. Portsmouth has a rich naval history. Nelson set sail from here in his ship the Victory before the battle of Trafalgar.
The Mary Rose sank here too and it's remains and the Victory are still located in Portsmouth We also have a football team who are in the FA Cup Final but are in receivership (financially challenged!)
Southern Illinois is where I call home. Really interested in moving overseas for a while though.
Boston(area), Massachusetts. "Where it all began" as far as the nation's history goes, home of the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtics (not that I'm a big sports fan). The history part is pretty much, I think, Boston's main "claim to fame". (God knows it isn't the politics, the weather, the skiing, or the surfing.)
Born in Belfast
Grew up in- Belfast N. Ireland, Plymouth, Singapore, Chatham, Bath, Gibraltar, went to Uni in Leicester and been here ever since- my kids have lived in the same house since they were born
Born and raised in a small town in Indiana. Now living in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Suffolk, Virginia here.
Born and raised on Long Island NY.
Born in Wichita, Kansas. Went back last year, and wouls like to go back one more time to see it burn.
Frying my brains in Phoenix, Arizona is better. Go figure.
Devon, UK. Not far from hound tor, which was the inspiration for hounds of the baskeville!
I grew up in and about London.
23 years ago I moved to Cologne in Germany just for fun, and I'm still here ... actually, I'm stuck here
Born in Bexhill-on-sea, East Sussex, England - a town known as 'God's Waiting Room'...
My parents moved along the coast to Eastbourne when I was a baby.
(I suppose Eastbourne is well known for nearby 'Beachy Head' - one of the most notorious suicide spots in the world!)
In 1993 I moved to France to a little village in the Charente-Maritime, where I lived for 7 years.
I moved back to England in 2000 and now live in Pevensey Bay where William the Conqueror landed in 1066!
My partner walks our dog around Pevensey castle most days - and being a water-loving-dog she always launches herself into the moat! This is Maisie pulling a small tree out of the moat just a few days ago
I know your area well. There are some beautiful spots there. I especially like The New Forest, and I've often been to Beachy Head. Isn't Arundel Castle also somewhere near there?
My parents are from West Sussex.
Hi Camlo - Arundel Castle is probably about an hours drive away. I went there when I was a child - in about 1965 my Dad was a policeman and was presented with a medal for bravery by the old Duke of Norfolk, who then took us for a tour around the castle. He told me and my little brother how he ued to rollerskate around the banqueting hall as a child and got told off a lot
One of the places I'm from is the beautiful Bend Oregon, here's some info about it.
Incorporated January 4, 1905
- Mayor Kathie Eckman
- City 32.2 sq mi (83.5 km2)
- Land 32.0 sq mi (82.9 km2)
- Water 0.2 sq mi (0.6 km2)
Elevation 3,623 ft (1,104.3 m)
- City 82,280 (est)
- Density 1,624.8/sq mi (627.4/km2)
Bend is the county seat of Deschutes County, Oregon, United States, and the principal city of the Bend, Oregon Metropolitan Statistical Area. Bend is Central Oregon's largest city, and, despite its modest size, is the de facto metropolis of the region, owing to the low population density of that area. With a population of 52,029 at the time of the 2000 census, Bend's estimated population was 82,280 in city, 170,705 urban, and 197,890 in metro as of July 1, 2009.
Bend is located on the eastern edge of the Cascade Range along the Deschutes River. Here the Ponderosa Pine forest transitions into the Great Basin high desert plateau, characterized by arid land, junipers, sagebrush, and bitter-brush. Originally a crossing point on the river, settlement began in the early 1900s. Bend was incorporated as a city in 1905. Economically, it started as a logging town, but is now identified as a gateway for many outdoor sports, including mountain biking, fishing, hiking, camping, rock climbing, white-water rafting, skiing, and golf.
Downtown circa 1920The name Bend was derived from "Farewell Bend," the designation used by early pioneers to refer to the location along the Deschutes River where the town eventually was platted, one of the few fordable points along the river.
For at least 12,000 years, until the winter of 1824, the Bend area was known only to Native Americans who hunted and fished there. That year, members of a fur trapping party led by Peter Skene Ogden visited the area. John C. Frémont, John Strong Newberry, and other Army survey parties came next. Then pioneers heading farther west passed through the area and forded the Deschutes River at Farewell Bend.
European American settlement did not occur until the early 1900s with the founding of the Pilot Butte Development Company by Alexander M. Drake. A small community developed around the area within the bend in the river, and in 1904, a city was incorporated by a general vote of the community's 300 residents. On January 4, 1905, the city held its first official meeting as an incorporated municipality, appointing A. H. Goodwillie as the first mayor. The settlement was originally called "Farewell Bend", which was later shortened to "Bend" by the U.S. Postal Service. Twelve years later, Deschutes County, Oregon was formed from the western half of Crook County and Bend was designated as the county seat. In 1929, Bend amended the charter and adopted the council-manager form of government.

Does anyone think Manchester city will become the new Chelsea and start dominating the Prem League?I'm not sure they will, they might break into the top 4, replacing Liverpool but the top teams already have solid foundations with Chelsea and Manchester United having an almost inpenetrable fixed...
