Mississippi Gulf Coast. I was born here but have lived in Orlando, Boston, Memphis, LA, Kansas and Canada. Returned home to care for my dad after he was put on hospice, two weeks before Katrina destroyed the area. Now, even though both parents are gone this is home and I'm staying.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT WE ARE FROM EVERYWHERE YET UNITED BY OUR GOALS AND FRIENDSHIP!
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma....but born & raised in Fresno, California. I have lived in many places, but the most memorable was Germany. My husband was a soldier in the US Army and we were stationed there for 2 years.
MERRY & BLESSED CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

Hi there! I am from Ft lauderdale, Florida, born and raised. I have been gone from sparks for a long time and really trying to get healthy again....so I am back. I was diagnosed with Lupus six months ago and am finally feeling well enough to "think" about excersising. I was a very active fat girl. lol I was at the beach every weekend, dogpark walking, at the ymca four times a week for water aerobics and bellydancing. I decided today I am going back to all those things, just modified. Al the northerners can be jealous of our winters, but now we are heading into hurricane season, so we will be jealous of you.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

I'm Kathy and I live in West Tennessee near Memphis. It's a big city with lots to do, depending on what it is you like. The winters are usually mild, but the summers are hot! I enjoy flower gardening and watching my little backyard birds. I have a daughter and a precious little 19 month old grandson and I love spending time with them. I also love spending time with old friends.

Hi all. I'm from Odessa, Texas...a town of 100,000 with a sister city (Midland) with another 100,000. It's in the middle of nowhere and I really dislike it. We are moving to Nashville, TN in the summer of 2011, a time that can't come soon enough. My brother and sister-in-law are there with their kids. I can't wait to get there where I can go hiking and biking and enjoy outdoors activities.

I was born in Springfield,Ohio and my family moved down here in 1973 when I was almost 6 yrs old because my dad couldn't find work in OH.
I grew up outside of Cincinnati, Ohio near Kings Island. I have resided in Knoxville, Tennessee for 15 years. I am amazed at the population growth in the suburbs of Cincinnati. It is unreal.
I love the mountains here. I hope to make more use of them as I lose weight. On my refrigerator my goal of 199 lbs by 07/10 is posted with a large picture of the Vortex at Kings Island. Next summer my boys will be 15 and 11, the perfect age for a family trip with lots of coaster fun.
Every week or two my 10 y.o. asks me "are you sure we are going to Kings Island next year?" It is a great motivator. Also a realistic timeline. As long as I keep this current effort up!

We promised the kids a trip to Cedar Point this summer. My youngest who is the daredevil, is finally tall enough to ride most of the rides.
We take the kids to all of the museums as much as possible during the winter. During the summer it is camping, camping, and more camping....lol..

When my youngest son, Erich, was finally tall enough to ALL the roller coasters in the amusement park, my boys and I took a roadtrip to Cedar Point to celebrate...we then came into Cleveland to go to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame...Cleveland is a great place!
I live in Brunswick Oh which is a suburb of Cleveland. I am approximately 40 miles south of cleve. We have roughly 35000 people in our community. My family is very active in Scouting and community involvement.

Tell us a little about where you live...how you like it, how long you've been there...tidbits, trivia...are there places to exercise. good places to eat...?
Here your chance to give a SHOUT-OUT for your hometown! WHO KNOWS...we might find out that some of us live very close to each other!
I live in Rockford, IL...a city of about 150,000 people on the banks of the Rock River in Northwestern Illinois, about 90 miles northwest of Chicago. We have lived here since 1990. One of the neatest things about Rockford is the many bike/walking paths available...I especially love the one closest to my home which winds along the Riverfront!
