Roll Call! Where's everyone from!?! Just a little fun! 🌏

Hi! One of these days my mission is to create a sort of interactive map, that if people wanted to join in on, could show what kind of diabetes events and friends might exist right in our own area! For now… Just a little fun… Where’s Everyone from? :earth_americas:

I was born in the Best City in the Universe, San Francisco. To quote Herb Caen, “When the city is all covered with fog, it’s like living inside a great gray pearl.” I now reside in the damp, green, and beautiful state of Oregon. I wish the entirety of San Francisco could be transplanted to Oregon.

I live about 25 miles east of Cleveland Ohio, in Painesville. I grew up in southern Ashtabula County, OH, in a small town most haven’t heard of (1 stoplight, just a post office and a feed mill).

I was born in the Royal Women’s Hospital in Perth, Western Australia. Grew up for the first 10 years of my life in a little town called Katanning in rural Western Australia, before my family drove to Ayr in Queensland where I spent the next 7 or so years of my life. Then Brisbane for University, followed by 10 months in Wuhan, China where I studied Mandarin just because I wanted to. This was followed by Hong Kong where I worked for about 18 months (including during the handover to China in 1997), and then to Manila, Philippines where I will shortly be celebrating my 20th year anniversary…

Born in a tiny obscure village named Los Angeles and presently live in Dallas, a small rural town in the middle of Oregon’s incredibly fertile Willamette Valley. Heaven on earth as far as I’m concerned. :sunglasses:

I’ve even been to Murfreesboro. Well, actually, I’ve driven through it . . . :wink:

P.S. Gary didn’t mention it, but Murfressboro is next door to the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the civil war. (Stones River, New Year’s Eve 1862, 25,000 killed or wounded; 6th costliest battle of the entire war.)
