    Having traveled here and there and everywhere my entire life I can't really say where I might be "from" :wink: but I did some how manage to settle here in the beautiful backwoods of Maine.

    i live in Lawrence, KS at the moment. i guess i could say i am "from" here as i have lived here longer than i have anywhere else; before that i have lived in quite a few states as well as Korea and Germany, that was a big plus of being the son of a career military man.:smile:

    I am "from" Puerto Rico, but I live in White Cloud, MI (I guess I might just as well say "middle of nowhere", as no one is likely to know where "White Cloud" is).

    Yes, I'd point out though that I'm not originally from Salt Lake City, I was born in California. So even though I think you asked that becuase I'm from SLC, I haven't always been here, in fact I haven't even lived here for a year.

    My family is Mormon and I have experienced both California Mormon's and Utah Mormons - let state that the difference is great...

    I'm in Kansas City, KS, now, but I'm planning on going back to California as soon as I can. :) Also I lived in Tehran, Iran for a couple years when I was a kid.

    oh ya i caught that, i was just guessing because i know that a lot of people of that faith go to school in SLC; i was just there last october to watch my cousin get married actually. the reason i asked was because i wanted to point out the similarily between LDS and Freemasonry/Rosicrucianism, a lot of people are unaware of such things and i think it is something that people should know, espesialy if they practice such beleifs.

    I am in transit back and forth between North and South America. I have no definite nationality (despite what a passport might say) due to the confused geography of my birthplace. What I might claim and what might actually be could be two different things. Being born 'on the fence' I take what is convenient at a given time.

    I'm sorry I guess I don't know what you're referring to.
