I was born in Louisiana, and mostly raised there as well, living for the past year and a half just outside of Vienna, Austria. I'm in a very old house in a tiny little village in the wine region. It is very different from the warm, humid, sticky weather I've been used to, but it is so beautiful. Fields of sunflowers and hills of grape plants. And frost and snow in the winter. It's lovely.

This was an interesting thread. So many places I've never been. Some I have.

I'm from a small community on the ocean in Nova Scotia Canada. The second smallest province of ten.

You know you can't eat as long as you're typing, I think just spending hours on the computer makes you lose weight. FYI

Happy New Year everyone,

Karen
