Born in Austin, TX. But I have never stopped moving. I've lived in every corner of the USA, spent time in a few other countries/continents.

Right now in the Florida panhandle, but we never stay anywhere more than 2 years.

Seriously considering a semi-permanent move to the Yucatan peninsula area of Mexico, or Panama...possibly Peru or Ecuador.

To be honest, we'd love to be UK citizens, but it's not easy to make that happen.

I split my time between Ames, Iowa and Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Right now we are in San Juan. I'm a farm boy from central Iowa originally.

Born in Superior, Wisconsin.

Raised in the 'burbs of Madison, Wisconsin and in Beirut, Lebanon.

Lived in Green Bay, Wisconsin from '69-'79, still claim it as my home town.

A few years in Rock Island, Illinois.

Lived for 12 years in a blink-and-you-miss-it town south of Moline, Illinois (kinda like the Tractors song sings about)--Alpha, Illinois--for 12 years.

Last ten years in Galesburg, Illinois--"Rail City"--Sa-LUTE!!

Ahoy, good sir! Hope to spend more time in Pensacola. My dad was stationed there back in the 50s. Lots of good music shops I hear.

Puerto Rico is one place I have NOT been, but have always wanted to see.

Preacher, I spent some of my "growin' up" years in Minnesota's Twin Cities. Spent some good times in Wisconsin. Also lived in Chicago a couple years and rambled around Illinois some.

I have no problem with tiny towns. Prefer them in some ways.

But I've come to two decisions about where I live: no harsh, freezing winters, and I'm going to try to never again live more than 20-30 miles from a beach.

My identical twin brother and I were born in Cincinnati, Ohio six weeks after our Holocaust survivor parents came to the US. Within about 16 months we moved to Boyle Heights Los Angeles, then shortly after moved to the West Side. I now live in a family owned apartment building my bother and I had built near the Beverly Center and Cedars Sinai Hospital.

There is nothing I could say that won't sound cliche and anemic, but how amazing. I just cannot imagine. Few humans could. But we must never forget. I'm actually tearing up a bit.

Please do let me know the next time you are accepting residents who can only pay with sincere gratitude.

Gratitude can go a long way, but not quite into a very nice westside apartment by Beverly Hills.

Come to Blues Angel Music at 10:30 any Saturday morning for a ukulele jam, generally between 25 and 40 people there each week. Not taxing music but almost always a good time, then a bunch of us go out somewhere for lunch.

Damm straight - the last time I checked my google analytics dashboard about usage of my ukulele app, it reported that we've had active users in 197 different countries around the world. I'm not sure how many actual countries there are but the map is looking pretty full :)

Oh - and I'm from Stafford, UK if anyone's interested :)

Grew up in Minnesota, moved to Washington about a million years ago. Lived briefly in Mexico and Oregon, back in Walla Walla and here I'll stay, I imagine. But you never know...

My neighbour is called Santa and we live in the Nunavut Territories close to Sam and Dave. We have a wee town called Iqaluit. No one has an outdoor swimming pool around here. The Arctic Ocean is only 13.000 feet deep at the deep end.
