    About 350, and only 150 from where I grew up.  It used to be 2500, but I came home a few years ago.

    About 10 but I only moved back a few years ago. I've lived all over the world and now I'm back right near where I was born.

    I live in the same county in which I was born but in a town about 20 miles away from my birthplace. I left home around 15-16 years of age and have traveled and lived in many places/states/towns -- and always seemed to eventually wind up right back in my home county -- so finally just gave up and retired here. The old saying is wrong -- one CAN "go back home!"
