I think it would be interesting to know which country everyone is from. I'd say the majority are from the US and UK, but I've seen some in Mexico and other countries, and I want to see just how wide the demographic is on this site.

I'm from Australia. Where are YOU from? a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

I grew up in Bath, England, but I've lived in Cardiff, Wales for pretty much all my adult life. It wasn't part of the plan.

Bath is known for Georgian architecture and Roman baths. Cardiff is famous for Doctor Who being made here. What's interesting or notable about your hometowns?

Topsham, Maine, USA, North America, Western Hemisphere, Earth

Joe asked for interesting facts about where we live. 

Topsham was named (as a lot of New England towns are) after a city (Town?) in England.

As a matter of fact Joe, the city next to mine is also called Bath. It is known as the "City of Ships". Bath Iron Works builds and repairs US Naval warships.

I'm from Monroe, Michigan, USA – which is about 30 mins south of Detroit. 

What's significant about Monroe? General Custer called Monroe his home, and his house (which is still standing) is right down the road from mine.

I come to you from good ol' Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. Notable for not being as cool as Denver.a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

All kidding aside though, we do have an Olympic training facility here. And very clean water! Plus we're over a mile above sea level.

From Asheville North Carolina USA. Currently living in northeastern Tennessee. I love it here in the Appalachian Mountains. Snowy winters and nice and warm in the summer, but not too hot and not full of mosquitos like lots of the deeper south. I still work in western North Carolina and commute 60 or so miles one way about 2-3 times a week. a-hard-days-night-john-7

I'm from Waterdown, Ontario, Canada. (Are there anymore Canadians? There used to be…) 

I live right in the heart of suburbia, and it's heaven.

I'm from the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina. We have Tango, mate, football (soccer), some of the best rock bands in spanish languaje, lots of beatles-homage-bands and the greatest concentration of assholes in the Western Hemisphere.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

You know, that's one of the things I don't like about Australia. Most people prefer AFL to the real football (and claim that they had the name football first). There are still quite a few football fans, but nowhere near as many as in South American and European countries.

I went to a Socceroos (nickname for the national team; I suppose Footballroos doesn't have the same ring to it) match last night, the farewell game before the World Cup, and no-one I knew went to the game.

Also, on an unrelated note, there are some new emoticons!

Having grown up in Carondelet, Mo, we were taught that the first kindergarten was there.  The middle school I went to was named after the woman that started the kindergarten.  I was fixing to call you on it, but after some research, you are correct.  The first kindergarten in the USA was in Watertown, WI.  The first "publically financed" kindergarten was in Carondolet, MO.  (learn something new everyday)

Isn't it a great film? I might do in my Summer vacations a little story about Sierra Madre locations and how they look today. Some of them are gone, but some of them look almost the same.

I'm from a small town called Yreka, CA and we don't really own up to anything! Our town is really small seeing as it's less than 10 square miles! And Yreka has been on the Top 100 Small Communities in th US since 1990! I can't wait to get out of here! I hope to move to Weed for community college  (cool fact is it's name) and then to Ashland, OR to further my education. Ashland is home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
