Not far from beautiful downtown Orillia, a smallish city of about 30,000 people, in central Ontario, Canada, and the Tim Horton's donut shop capital of the world!

Oh, and it's also the birthplace of Gordon Lightfoot.

It is positioned between 2 lakes, therefore blessed with two waterfronts. Definitely a very nice place, but it's rather hard to find jobs here unless you like flipping burgers or working at Wal-Mart.

Not far from town are the palatial residence buildings and sprawling campus of the WSSBA. In the main rotunda is a gigantic statue of Him, standing beside a 300 foot long Tribble. You have to see it to believe it.

Seattle, Washington. If the map of the United States were an envelope, I'm up where you'd put the return address.

I live in an older apartment building (historical landmark status) on a tree-lined street on Capitol Hill, which is a very nice older residential district not far from downtown. There is a neighborhood business district (grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, pubs, bookstores, etc.) a few blocks to the west and another a few blocks to the east. Volunteer Park and the Asian Art Museum is a couple of blocks to the north.

Pleasant surroundings. You know;   Camelot West. . . .

Albuquerque, New Mexico - which is part of the US, not Mexico. West of Texas, east of Arizona, north of Texas and Chihuahua (which is part of Mexico), south of Colorado. The city was founded in 1706 and named after the Duke of Alburquerque (Spain), I think because the original Spanish colonists wanted him to give them money, but they spelled it wrong and got nada.

Hi Desdemona, neighbor, we haven't yet crossed paths, I think lously memory) but hopefully one day. You gotta be close by, I'd guess around Clinton, Bolton area or just to the south somewhere. Do you go to any of the Boston area sessions. My wife & I missed meeting you at the Waterson/Carthy concert. Another time perhaps?

And now for something completely different - I'm one of the Oz 'catters. I live in Sydney Australia - major city and capital of NSW. We are on the east coast with a beautiful harbour and lovely beaches. We have the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and NO kangaroos hopping down the street. There are a few of us in Sydney, but I'll let them post.

I'm actually in Earlwood, which is one of the south west 'burbs of Sydney - close enough in to make it easy to get into town but far enough out to have freestanding houses, wide streets, big blocks of land with lawns and gardens, and trees and birds. Best of both worlds, really!

Like JennyO I live in the suburbs of Sydney, in the wild western suburbs. Sefton is about 40 minutes south-westish of the centre of the city (far too close in my opinion - at least 3 hours away would be better). It's very ordinary although we are well served by parks and there is a golf course just around the corner, so plenty of trees and birds.

Sefton rarely makes the news except for something like a murder in the local pub carpark.

But my heart is in the country and I can't wait to get out of the city, I used to like it here but have grown to dislike it intensely. Only 2 more years to go.........

"We have the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and NO kangaroos hopping down the street." JennyO

It never occurred to me to suspect kangaroos or the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House of hopping down the street. Why do you mention it?

:)

By the way, you Sydneyites, I always think of you when I see the beautiful sweeping sails of that waterfront building of yours. Not many things more immediately recognizable.

KAKSOD Ebbie! You're bad! Now you've got me imagining the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge hopping down the street.

Believe it or not, there are still a few ignorant souls around who think we have roos in the city running wild, or as pets. Not in this elite company of course ;-) What was I thinking?

Actually, John (Warner) and I went to a concert in the Opera House earlier this month - it was called "Enchanted", and was a rather amazing combination of classical and folk, with Danny Spooner performing with the Sydney Chamber Orchestra. We had free tickets because one of the songs he did was a song John wrote, Newell Highway. Very special!

We have a lot of great places in and near the city - The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Luna Park to name a few. At Darling Harbour near the Maritime Museum there is moored the James Craig, a fully restored and operational 1874 sailing barque - a beautiful sight. It goes out on trips regularly and there are shanty singing sessions on it sometimes. Pity the parking there is such a !&*@#&* problem!

Kings Cross, the entertainment centre of Sydney, about half a mile up the hill from the CBD, next to Sydney's beautiful Harbour.

It's a mixed area of retail, entertainment (expensive bars/nightclubs, 24 hour liquor licences, strip clubs etc) & the highest density residential area in Sydney. Old & new apartment blocks, old terrace housing, lots of rich folks, still some poor folks, street people & drug addicts, lots of backpackers, zillions of tourists & visiting Sydneysiders out for a "good time"

The Cross was part of the first British settlement of Sydney in the years following their arrival in 1788. It's part of the suburb Potts Point which includes Wooloomooloo (public & private housing), Elizabeth Bay (where zillionaires live), East Sydney & Rushcutters Bay. All localities include terrace housing, small old & tall new apartment blocks, rich & poor. And tourists.

Smallish town of 7500 or so souls, located on Lake Huron, called Goderich. Ontario is full of such towns and they all claim to be unique in some way or another, and I suppose they are, except to be full of generally good people. We have a pleasant little 1880s brick house with tangled gardens, two dogs, two kids (well, one's still at home), and well...I think there's a toaster in there somewhere too.

Alternately I spend time at the family place on Georgian Bay, where, like my parents before me, I hope to retire when the time comes.

Truly if it wasn't for my good wife, I'd probably be living under a bridge in my very own cardboard box.

Peace, Mooh.

I live in a hamlet of 8 houses and 2 farms, only one of which is less than 200 years old, on the south eastern slopes of Bodmin Moor, on the upper edge of the Lynher valley, in Cornwall, UK. I love it to bits and the only way you are going to get me out of here is in a box!

of which is where George Washington crossed over that famous
Christmas Eve to 'put brise up yon Hessians an toin da tide

very nice restaurants, pubs, and shops, all within walking distance

On the other hand, drive 4 miles the other way and I'm on my

They don't want to just rebuild the road as it was because it's been wiped out several times before and the consensus is that doing so would be throwing good money after bad. Only pedestrians and boats can get out there right now.

Yes, BWL, we were there last July and it's just not the same place since Ivan. We made the trek out to Ft. Pickens on foot and nearly perished from the heat but I had to get a look at the dear old place.

Trust me Megan, it's warm enough. The record low temperature was around 71 degrees F. The standard weather forecast here consists of variations on the theme that includes; "partly cloudy", "chance of rain", and "temperatures in the 80s (F)". The sea is blue with shades of green and sometimes gray. The water is clear as crystal and the fish and corals come in every shade you can imagine including the neon colors. Coldest water temperature I've seen here was also in the 70s F.

I'm going kayaking on Sunday. Anyone interested?

By the way, average airplane ticket cost from the east coast of the USA is around $2,000.

On ~150 acres of bush that's never been cleared, nor even grazed since 1980. There's a bit of creek (usually flowing at 3 teaspoons/month), a bit of tall Eucalypt forest (E. macrorrhyncha, E. melliodora, Angophora and a few others), a bit of tea tree (Leptospermum lanigerum) scrub, a bit of relict native pasture, a bit of rock (the contact zone between the granite batholith and the overlying metamorphosed sedimentary stuff), a bit of flat and a bit of steep. The top is at 1000m ASL and there's no part you can stand on and see all of it. Quite a few gliders and native birds (no currawongs, thankfully) and a resident mob of macropods (a couple of Swamp wallabies, a couple of of wallaroos and a variable number of the inevitable Eastern Greys) that clutter up the half kilometre of driveway before I hit the road to town (usually Armidale) about half an hour's drive away. Armidale is where the more famous (and original) UNE is located, has 25,000 people, a good Art Museum, and more decent entertainments than most Oz country towns twice its size.

Cheers, Rowan

Maggie and I live at Whitmore's Landing on Arrowsic Island in Maine. The Town of Arrowsic is the first and only Maine town so far to vote to end Bush's oil war of choice. Some of us are going down to Kennebunkport on Sunday for the Peoples Summit to Impeach. We will march to the checkpoint on the road to Walker's Point to show Bush and Putin our outrage.

Guildford, Surrey, UK.

I live in the middle of the town, within 5 minutes walk of bus and railway stations, the town centre and High Street with it's setts (often wrongly referred to as cobblestones) and Guildhall and clock, two theatres and all the necessary amenities - with Surrey countryside all within easy reach, and London 40 minutes train ride away. For the last ten years, the Electric Voices organisation (run by Lawrence Heath) has been providing high quality folk entertainment for the town and its area, and has now branched out to Cranleigh and Farnham as well as Godalming where the borough hall barn dances have been going on for over 30 years. We now also have our own club in the centre of the town. I was born here xxx years ago, and with the exception of a couple of moves to Farnham and Dorking following my Dad's work in the Fire Brigade around when I was in my teens, and three years at University in Aberystwyth, have lived here all of my life.

Curmudgeon and I live in an owner-built post and beam house on 33 acres of trees and rock (south slope) in Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA. We're 40 minutes to Portsmouth and our home pub, The Press Room, about the same commute time to the Atlantic Ocean anywhere on New Hampshire's short 16 mile coastline. We're midway (uphill) between the Seacoast and the state capitol, Concord; about 90 miles from Boston, Massachusetts; and 75 miles from South Portland, Maine. (Hmm...about 35 miles from Barry Finn, 4 miles from Jeri.) I've only been here since 1981 -- Tom built the house in '76. He's the true Yankee; I'm a displaced Milwaukean.

Nottingham has a population of about 4400 and the chief business in "downtown" Nottingham is a convenience store/gas station/pizza place called Liar's Paradise (from the optimistic fishermen who used to hang out on the benches out front). It also used to house the post office, but that spun off about 20 years ago into its own establishment which finally offered home delivery. Nottingham is also the home of Cedar Waters nudist camp. Cool Cravings, the local ice cream place on Rte. 4 (bumper sticker: "Pray for me, I drive Rte. 4"), sports a sign that says:
            Ice Cream
Lobster Rolls    Hot Dogs
    Loam & Gravel

In 1722 the town was granted to 101 petitioners from Seacoast towns between Boston and Portsmouth who wanted to settle a tract of land north of Exeter. The petitioners asked that the town be named New Boston, but Governor Shute gave it the name Nottingham, in honor of Daniel Finch, second Earl of Nottingham. The Earl was a close friend of Colonial Governors Shute and Dudley of Massachusetts when New Hampshire was under that province's jurisdiction. The original grant was considerably larger than now, but Deerfield separated from Nottingham in 1766, and Northwood separated in 1773.

If you check out Nottingham on satellite photos, almost all you see are trees -- and Pawtuckaway Lake.

I live in Montpelier Vermont, New England, US, about 2 hours from Montreal CA (If the border isn't difficult)

Montpelier is a great little town. It's two main distinctions are that it's the smallest US State capital (8,000 souls)) and it's the only state capital without a MacDonalds. Great food, great books, great movies, nice entertainment, and I can walk to all of it. there is white stuff, but tha's part of the charm, although April snow is a bit much.

Mudcatters welcome on the futon, as long as you aren't allergic to cats.

Well, what do you know -- I live about ten miles away from where Greg B. lives!

However, I feel I must clarify some of Greg's description: Doylestown is only 26 miles north of center-city Philadelphia "as the crow flies" (but 40 or so miles as MapQuest's circuitous route makes the crow drive). Also, Bucks County does indeed border on the Delaware River, but Doylestown itself is not on the riverside.

More importantly for historical accuracy's sake, I must point out that George Washington did not cross the Delaware River at its "southern terminus" (nor even at the southern terminus of Bucks County); he crossed 15 or so miles due east of Doylestown, at a location now known on both sides of the river (PA and NJ) as Washington Crossing, upstream from the Hessians in Trenton by about 10 miles (and over 100 miles upstream from where the river ends at Delaware Bay!); I have driven over the bridge at Washington Crossing many times so I know the place! Moreover, Washington did not make the crossing on "that famous Christmas Eve"; the crossing began during the late hours of Christmas Day, 1776, and was not completed until about 3:00 a.m. on December 26th, whereupon Washington and his troops marched downriver to fight and win the Battle of Trenton (which only took about an hour -- they were re-crossing the Delaware back into Pennsylvania by noon!).

Greg is quite correct, though, in describing the area as very scenic with many a horse farm, and in describing Doylestown's revival. They've preserved many of its older buildings and created a nice night-life of activity there. Hey, Greg, have we seen each other at the open mike at Puck's?

Pontyclun, south Wales (pronounced Pont-a-clean).

We've got quite a cluster of Catters here. I live 150yds from JudeL and Soup Dragon, within a stone's throw of Scooby Doo (hers is the house with all the broken windows), within cwtching distance of Dame Pattie Smith EPNS, and within shanty shouting distance of Dr Price.

Oh, and good choice, Trubrit, I was born and raised in Dorking.

Now, who remembers Dorking Folk Club in The Wheatsheaf, or even before that in the Surrey Yeoman?
