I'm from ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry.... hehe. I love it here.

I was born here!! I'm one of the few Atlantans that lives here that was actually born here.

Just about everyone in the world knows my city. The Home of Coca-Cola and Home Depot, and the place of the infamous 1996 Olympics.

The only Olympic event I saw in person was the womens Marathon.... It was free, of course... But it was cool to watch!

Ummm........ I could go on and on all day about da ATL, but honestly I'm tired right now.......lol

I live in Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain.
Wolverton is an old town that is home to a now greatly reduced railway works that used to service the Royal Train.

We are on the edge of the new city of Milton Keynes (the fastest growing city/town in Europe), and not far from the border with Northamptonshire.

We are about 50 miles from the centre of London, as the crow flies.

The town sprung up around the Railway Works in the Victorian period and grew during the Edwardian period.
The vast majority of houses are well over 100 years old, mainly in long terraces set out in a grid formation close to the Works.

Our one (ex) resident of fame was Albert French.
Albert joined the Army at the age of 16 to fight in the Great War. He was killed in action on the 15 June 1916, a week short of his 17th birthday.
Albert has been the subject of a number of TV and radio documentries over the years.
He is buried in Belgium, and I have been to his grave.

I've only lived here for just over a year, before that I spent about 8 years living in Milton Keynes. Before that I lived in Cople, a little village in Bedfordshire, before that in North London and I was born in Wallingford in the Royal County of Berkshire.

My hometown in Buckhorn New Mexico. It is 35 miles east of Silver City, NM. It is a very small town, in my senior class there were 35 kids and in my whole school K-12 there were around 350 kids. There is quite a bit of farming and ranching. We have one gas station and two convience stores, so if someone needs something major they have to go to SIlver City to get it.

Wellll... my hometown is the beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. I absolutely love it here. I've moved away twice (once to Hawaii and the other was for college) but I came back both times. Charleston is wonderful... great night life.. plantations... decent beaches (crappy waves though). Downtown is beautiful. The historic multi-million dollar houses are located there. My morning run is a ten minute drive from my house. Its a 3 mile run along what we Charlestonians like to call the battery. Its along the waterfront with the water and the sunrise on one side and historic beautiful houses on the other side. Wow, I feel like a travel agent or something..

My hometown is Langley, B.C., Canada. Not a whole lot to tell about it, except that it's a suburb of Vancouver. It's your typical suburban municipality. I like it. I live in a sub-devision called walnut grove. It was actually vote second-best place to live in Canada. It's great. I like it. Everyone knows everyone.

Im from Avilla, Arkansas. Some maps have us on em and some dont lol. Its the kind of place that we have a Benton phone number, Alexander address, Bryant school district, soon to get Salem water, yet we are Avilla

Its nice and quiet here and the nearest neighbor is a bunch of tree's. Some mornings we can kill deer in our front yard, but its nice to see them all the time. Squirrels and rabbits tease the hunting dogs and the horses always have nice green grass.

P.S. Wooo Pig Sooie!
