    Conceived In England Born In Los Angeles

    That's my father.  His parents were scheduled to sail on the Titanic but got bumped to the Adriatic (lucky for me?).  They arrived April 27, 1912 and had a cylinder grinding shop in Los Angeles.  My Dad said he was the fastest newspaper boy in LA - he used roller...

    I miss it. Some days more

    than others. The mountains. The palm trees. The people. My home. And what hurts the most is that if I ever go back, it will all be different. It changed. Moved on without me. So I guess all I have left of home are the memories. But even if my home is no longer how it was, in...

    Lancaster.

    I am from the one and only Lancaster. Crazy Hot. My grandfather works for Boeing and he's a retired Air Force mechanic, so I spent most of my days on Edwards Air Force Base. I went to Nancy Cory Elementary and then moved to Atlanta when I was 9.

    I was born in California, but moved to Oregon when I was still a baby, but I used to go visit family down there every few years.  I loved it there and would love to take a trip to Cali again sometime.

    I was born in south orange county. I've also lived in Sacramento, Oceanside, and for a few unfortunate years in the I.E. So glad that's over. I have visited almost every city in California, and I have to say I'd rather live anywhere along the Cali coastline than any other place...

    I grew up in Redwood City,

    about 30 minutes north of San Jose. I moved to Irvine (Orange County) for college and have since liked only one thing about SoCal over NorCal: the abundance of sunny days! Cali, though, is the best state in the United States.
