Pssst!  And I even know the "secret" beach where they film "Lost" on O'ahu!!  It really isn't that big a secret! 

Dear Janet:

OOPS!, I guess it really was a secret! Looks like someone deleted your photos. I hope it wasn't that character you adapted from the "Seinfeld" series ;)

I'm a native Kansan...........born in Beloit and raised and educated (more or less) in Lawrence.  I've been around, bith in the US and in Europe, but Lawrence is still home and I'm still a Jayhawk at heart.



I'm currently in Bamberg, Germany but scheduled to return later this year.

Even though I'm black, and born in Maywood, IL (just a few miles outside Chicago), I've lived with a white, suburban family of German & Irish ancestry, who eventually adopted me in 1999, when I was 10. I've lived in the same house since I was 7 months old, across the street from the Chicago & Northwestern railroad tracks, in the far-western Chicago suburb of Wheaton, Illinois, known mostly for Wheaton College, a Christian liberal arts school, where my dad taught for almost 20 years & where my mom now works as a nurse in the college clinic. Wheaton is about an hour by car to Chicago, and about 45 minutes by Metra commuter train. I live about a mile and a half east of where this photo is taken. I actually live closer to the neighboring town of Glen Ellyn, and had I lived a couple blocks east, I would have been going to Glenbard West, as opposed to Wheaton North High School.

I am from Illinois. Am of Cherokee-Irish descent if you can imagine that combo.

In the states of Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee that is a rather common mixture, as is Cherokee-Scotch.

Leah,

Your post made me do some research as it conflicted with my memory of English political geography. Devon is a county and the cities of Plymouth and Exeter are within its boundries. Cornwall is a county. Devon and Cornwall share the same constabulary and criminal justice board.

David, you must forgive Leah. Devon and Cornwall are, indeed separate and indeed disparate counties divided by the river Tamar.

I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, otherwise known as Boriken "the land of the good and noble lord", which I love with all of my heart.
