    My parents are Egyptian.

    I was born there but I was raised and lived my entire life in NYC. So I consider myself American more than Egyptian. Plus, I've never seen or bothered to see the Pyramids. Just like I've never bothered to see the ball drop in Times Square.

    Greetings from the ghost town - Knockemstiff,

    Ohio! I'm a Florida boy, but moved a lot. I've finally settled in the Buckeye state with my "river rat" Cincy-gal wife, two Maine Coone cats, a long-haired black lab, and 37 acres of wooded privacy and active wildlife. This is my last stop. I never want to live anywhere else.
