    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?

    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.

        The Hindenburg did crash in the US. "Manchester, NJ, USA," he said.

        There is a Manchester in England as well.

    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 lol

        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 lol

          Wow! That's a real honour.
          Yes, I haven't been there since I was a child either, which is why I couldn't remember exactly where it is. But had the Duke of Norfolk shown me around, I probably wouldn't have forgotten a single detail.

    One of the places I'm from is the beautiful Bend Oregon, here's some info about it.

    County Deschutes
    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)
    Population (2009)
    - City 82,280 (est)
    - Density 1,624.8/sq mi (627.4/km2) 
    Website www.ci.bend.or.us
    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.
