Lets see if I can be the first to put up this blue clicky: this thread goes around every few months and is probably due for another spin. Last one was six months ago.

Who me? Lanark County Ontario Canada.

Not stupid at all, Lena. If you go to the Quick Links and drop down the menu, then choose Mudcat Resources, you will find a Mudcat Locator which lists countries of those who have chosen to be listed.

In addition there was a really long thread a while back called Mudcat (THE WORLD) let us know where you are.

If I remember right there were a couple more, too, BUT they all got really long, so it is always nice to have a new one come about...makes for easier reading and we get to learn about newbies, too, so thanks for starting this one!

I am in Wyoming.

Kansas City, Missouri. (Yes, there is a Kansas City, Kansas. It's smaller, and usually if you just hear Kansas City, it's understood to mean MO.)

I wouldn't mind seeing Australia, though I might prefer it during the summer.

If you select "Mudcat resources" from that box on top of that thread saying "Quick Links" and then press go and then click on the link "Mudcat Locator" you will find lots of geographical infos on Mudcatters (on your way there you might also note a photo, profile, birthday ... link)

Currently. Southern central Sahara. Good tanning options, no rain. The folk scene is also a little arid.

Usually. Gosport Hampshire, UK. lots of rain, few tanning options but better folk scene.

Am in: Pittsford, Vermont, USA. Near west side of Vermont, about halfway up. When people in this part of the country, but outside the state, ask where it is, I usually just say "near Killington" because that's the only thing near here that they've ever heard of.

Would like to be in: The more mountainous parts of Wyoming/Montana/Idaho/Utah. Usually, but not this month. I understand they're roasting out there.

Would like to see Oz and NZ someday. Would also like to wander around Scotland and Ireland (not the part with all the shooting) on foot. But I won't go without my guitar, and the airlines would lose it or break it, so I don't know if I'll get around to it.

I would like very much to go to Ireland and see my friend Melissa. Plus I would like to visit Scotland, Germany, Holland and Turkey. Failing that, a trip to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia might suffice...

Born and raised in California. My parents were born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and when I was a kid, I picked up on their accent and spoke with a few Brooklynisms. For years, people first meeting me assumed I was from New York city. The accent has faded over the years, though it pops up again when I'm around New Yorkers.

I left Fairbanks, Alaska, and ran out of gas in Tallahassee, Florida, which is located in the northern panhandle of the state. Go figure ... Those from Southern Georgia (USA) refer to Tallahassee as "occupied Georgia." It is hotter than the hinges of hell, here, with temps over 100 degrees and humidity the same (and no rain). But ... we have real good air conditioning.

What a thoroughly enjoyable thread! I'm still on the rainy side of the Big Island of Hawaii, where for the past week we've been reminded that this really is the rainy side. I'm glad I got my downspout fixed so some of it goes into the water tank. Then again, with my generator on the fritz I could use a little sun...such is life in the country, as I'm sure many of you all will relate. Finally finding a few people here to sing and play guitar with, which is wonderful. Anybody coming out this way, give me a shout. Oh, yes, I spent several years in the Northwest, grew up in Philly, wouldn't want to live anywhere but Hawaii, but would love to see Australia/NZ and the Mediterranean, and maybe spend a little more time sailing the San Juans and the BC coast. And let me be the first to remind 'Spaw that in his excitement he forgot to tell us all where he is at. But I agree with him completely.

Like the Mary Black line, Embo, probably 'cos I don't. Heaven, for me, is where I was born and raised, on the wide expanses of the windswept Essex salt marshes. That is where my bones will lay, after I finally make my homecoming.

I thought I would try and write about it, but realised a wordsmith with powers far greater than mine had already done so, over a hundred years ago, in the opening lines of his hymn to the marshes, Mehalah. Apologies for clogging up the thread, but I love these words so much.

Mehalah - Sabine Baring Gould - Chapter One - The Ray

"Between the mouths of the Blackwater and the Colne, on the east coast of Essex, lies an extensive marshy tract veined and freckled in every part with water. At high tide the appearance is that of a vast surface of Sargasso weed floating on the sea, with rents and patches of shining water traversing and dappling it in all directions.

The creeks, some of considerable length and breadth, extend many miles inland, and are arteries whence branches out a fibrous tissue of smaller channels, flushed with water twice in the twenty four hours. At noontide, and especially at the equinoxes, the sea asserts its royalty over this vast region, and overflows the whole, leaving standing out of the flood only the long island of Mersea, and the lesser islet, called the Ray. This latter is a hill of gravel rising from the heart of the marshes, crowned with ancient thorntrees, and possessing, what is denied the mainland, an unfailing spring of purest water. At ebb, the Ray can only be reached from the old Roman causeway, called the Strood, over which runs the road from Colchester to Mersea Isle, connecting formerly the city of the Trinobantes with the station of the count of the Saxon shore. But even at ebb, the Ray is not approachable by land unless the sun or east wind has parched the ooze into brick; and then the way is long, tedious and tortuous, among bitter pools and over shining creeks. It was perhaps because this ridge of high ground was so inaccessible, so well protected by nature, that the ancient inhabitants had erected on it a rath, or fortified camp of wooden logs, which left its name to the place long after the timber defences had rotted away.

A more desolate region can scarce be conceived, and yet it is not without beauty. In summer, the thrift mantles the marshes with shot satin, passing through all gradations of tint from maiden's blush to lily white. Thereafter a purple glow steals over the waste, as the sea lavender bursts into flower, and simultaneously every creek and pool is royally fringed with sea aster. A little later the glass-wort, that shot up green and transparent as emerald glass in the early spring, turns to every tinge of carmine.

When all vegetation ceases to live, and goes to sleep, the marshes are alive and wakeful with countless wild fowl. At all times they are haunted with sea mews and roysten crows. In winter they teem with wild duck and grey geese. The stately heron loves to wade in the pools, occasionally the whooper swan sounds his loud trumpet, and flashes a white reflection in the still blue waters of the fleets. The plaintive pipe of the curlew is familiar to those who frequent these marshes, and the barking of the Brent geese as they return from their northern breeding places is heard in November."

It's a good read, but it'll have you blubbing. It's on the net at http://www.author.co.uk/mehalah.htm

Bigchuck, I too am a native Vermonter (sixth generation) who only recently moved away and will surely be back. My mom grew up in Rutland and my grandparents lived there til they died, so I spent a lot of days down on Seabury Street, though I grew up in & around Northfield and Montpelier. Still have lots of second and third cousins there--Losebys & Davises, mostly. Susan A-R. who hasn't yet responded to this thread is another native Vermonter, who grew up in Randolph and lives in Montpelier now. (But probably you know her? Vermont is such a small place.)

As for where I'd like to be, well, my heart sure pines for the summit of Camel's Hump in the summer, with the red sun going down behind the smoky blue Adirondacks and the granite still warm beneath me . . . or swimming in those cold clear spring-fed waters of Curtis Pond or Number Ten . . .

Of course, Scotland would do nicely too.

Lena,

The dreaded Opera singers may have choked your culture's folk music to unconciousness, but I doubt very much it is dead. It is up to you and your fellow countrymen (and women) to splash some water in it's face and revive it. If there is no song about missing your homeland, then make one up...Hell make up a bunch of them. Write songs about your childhood, songs about life in a new place from your Italian expatriate point of view, songs about leaving your country and what it was like, songs about your history, hell, just write some songs and spread them around. Just because there is no current Italian folk music scene doesn't mean there can't be one. If you and some of your friends start a revival, the results just might surprise you.

You are all making me envious. I've lived all my life right here. I'm in the Blue Mountains in Australia, overlooking the lights of Sydney and the 2000 Olympic rowing and white water venues. We have a creek in the bushland at the back and it is raining, windy and cold! (so much for sunny Sydney)... now, if only I had the courage to get on a plane and see the world beyond this island home!

Hey L R Mole!

When are you coming through town? I'm out of town until the 22nd and then I'm hosting the Mocha Cafe coffeehouse and open mike. there will be a mini gathering of 'catters there. You ought to come a long. PM for details.

And, yes, the ospreys still nest on the bridge onto Arrowsic. There are also breeding pairs on the pole coming in to Bath and a tree where Route 1 crosses the New Meadows River. In the summer the ospreys are as numerous as mosquitoes.

I woke this morning and my sheets were painted orange by the sunrise reflected from the clouds. I rolled over and looked out at the river to see an orange and blue mix of color reflected in the water and tinting the rocks on the other bank. As I watched a squadron of seagulls stroked past on their way down river to examine the fishing boats and fish packing plant.

Why would I want to live anywhere else?

Anyway, I was born (1930) and raised in Milton, Wisconsin and have lived in California (Modesto, Fresno, Gridley, Grass Valley), Oregon (Hood River area), New Mexico (El Rito), British Columbia (White Rock, Kamloops), Utah (Torrey) and since 1989 here in Arizona in Cottonwood - about 100 mi. north of Phoenix and 50 mi. south of Flagstaff. Just about in the center of the state.

I've been a farm and factory worker, social worker, college and university instructor, National and State Park Ranger, and many other jobs, mostly part time. I'm retired now, but am starting up a home based job as an Independent Travel Agent. I like to read travel, camp, do photography, have been a stage actor and director and performed with The Reivers singing Irish and Scottish songs and ballads. I enjoy listening to that kind of music as often as possible, pursue interests in history, geography and geology.

Hey Wusie! We're almost neighbours. I started out in Gosport, Hampshire, England (where Sledge posts from), came to Australia in 1962 and lived in the Yarra Valley in Victoria for forty years, then a couple of years ago I moved to South Australia. I'm currently at work at Christies Beach and shortly go home to a caravan up on the ridge at Yundi where I'm trying to build something to live in. In the meantime, the rest of thye family are house sitting for friends in... yes... Aldinga. I was working in Mt Barker the weekend of the festival so I missed it but I plan to get there sometime soon. I like the Singing Gallery at McLaren Vale as well.

Well I was born and live in Tamworth (former capital of Mercia) currently in Staffordshire(UK), but was in Warwickshire 40 years ago - we must have moved! I live 6 miles from a pub called the '4 counties', because it sat at the corners of Warks, Leics, Derbys and Staffs.

However to thicken the plot, I have a Birmingham post code, we're considered to be in the West Midlands, and I live 12 miles from Meridan (considered to be dead centre of England - well it is by those that live there)

This thread is amazing for it's global appeal, but what happened between Sept 00 and Sept 04 ?????????

Just noticed I've never posted to this thread, hmmm . . .

Sitting surrounded by technology in a decidedly low tech owner-built (and still unfinished, sigh) post-and-beam house (a kit) in the middle of the woods (33 acres) on the side of a hill at the end of a 200 foot driveway which goes uphill to meet the road on the hill, here in southern New Hampshire, USA about equidistant between the seacoast (Portsmouth) and mountains (Concord to the west, Conway to the north).

I came here (meaning coastal New England) about 35 years ago to come to a warm climate -- from Wisconsin's (and Upper Michigan) Lake Michigan shore (and Great Lakes weather).

Where would I like to be? Singing with friends and swigging stout in a pub in England/Wales/Scotland or climbing over ruins on Crete or maybe snorkling in some warm blue-green water.

But, quite honestly, I very happy here at home. (Or in a Portsmouth pub, swigging stout and singing with friends.)

LOL!!! You...came to coastal New England in search of a warm climate, huh? Hmmm... maybe a refresher in Basic Semantics? Or mayhap Physics 101. That's kind of like moving to New York to find clean streets and friendly people, if you don't mind my saying so!! :>D

Even here in San Diego I find myself once a year cursing the cold snap and vowing to move to Southern California.
