In the thread "I'm sorry…" I have been talking about my country, and that was desapropriated for that thread. So want to share the characteristics about my beautiful nation and know other places through the feelings of its residents.

Well, Anocas…

I live in Florida in the United States. It's in the far southeast part of the country. It is warm here. It usually doesn't get below 40 degrees Farenheit. During the summer it gets around 90 degrees, max. We have beautiful palm trees everywhere and beautiful beaches. We have sharks, alligators, manatees, and armadillos (sp?)… Hmmm.. I think that about covers it! :)

Hi Anocas,
I am feeling kind of tired now, but will tell you a little for now. It is going on 8:30 in the evening here now. I live in NE Ohio and in this area we have Lake Erie and the beaches, swimming, fishing and boating areas. Several parks where people have picnics, cookouts etc., things for the children to do and walking trails, also nature centers which feature cultural events. Lots of golf courses some with beautiful country clubs where people can eat and also buy golf supplies, clothing and all. We have bird watching clubs where people report different kinds of birds, new and rare species of birds. They have meetings, take trips together etc. We have art galleries and also at the library they have art shows and many different events there. We have a teen-senior center which offers many classes, yoga, tai chi, exercise, computer, different kinds of card games, bridge etc. We have many museums in the area and other cultural places to try to preserve our heritage. Native Americans lived in this area by the lake so they have cultural dances etc. Also, many people of Irish descent live here and we have the Irish clubs with dinners and dances and some Irish pubs. And much more with shopping malls, restaurants, bowling alleys etc. etc. I could go on and on. I have always lived in areas with people predominately descended from Irish and German, English and Scotch which is also my background. However, here we have many many different cultures so it is interesting and sometimes they have cultural days featuring foods from the different countries, music and dance etc. There is so much here to do if one has a car to get around as then your choices are many. I hope this gives you an idea.

Where I live you can't walk down the street without almost running into a kangaroo and at home we have a koala 'bear' that lives in our letter box that hands us the letters when we get home. On weekends we all go into the city wearing our 'stubbie' shorts, singlets and 'thongs' (those that go on your feet, that is) and drink Fosters beer and watch people catch crocodile…

I've always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand… I bet it is beautiful… My favorite animal used to be the Koala until I found out how mean they can be! You'd never know that by just looking at pictures of them… They look so sweet and gentle! :)

Hi Anocas,

I live in North Carolina. We have the outer banks of the Atlantic Ocean here, and we also have the Great Smokey Mountains, where my family is from. There are lots of Cherokee Native Americans in Cherokee County where my family is from and from which we are descended. There are plenty of native american museums in that part of the state and beautiful jewelry and handicrafts which they make. We also have Harrah's Casino on the reserversation. I've only been there once though, as gambling doesn't appeal to me at all. It does bring money to the reservation, however.

We have Duke University in Raleigh, the University of NC at Chapel Hill, both with excellent medical centers. We have Wake Forest University Medical Center which is also one of the best in the country.

The people of North Carolina are generally very good-hearted, friendly people. The weather here varies quite a bit also. In the Cherokee County mountains, we get little snow but further north, in Boone, Banner Elk, etc. (ski resorts), we get lots of snow!!!

Mostly in the middle part of the state, where I live, we get some snow and usually 1-2 or more ice storms in winter. Summers here are HUMID and HOT!!! Walk outside and sweat; never mind actually doing anything to break a sweat. It just comes. Very stifling at times.

In this area, we have a great arts community. Also, Woolworth's is here. The particular Woolworth store I'm speaking of is where the black students sat down at the lunch counter in the 1960's, so we were very much a part of the Civil Rights Movement.

All around,,North Carolina is a beautiful, green state with everything to offer!!!!

Just wanted to mention I've heard N. Carolina is a beautiful state. I know I'd like it if I visited there as I love attending the Native American pow wows and things. All of my grandchildren are partly descended from Cherokee.

Wouldn't you know I forgot the most important thing that Ohio is an agricultural state so lots of farms, greenhouses, markets and Amish areas where they still keep to their old customs and sell delicious foods, cheeses which they are well known for and their creamery butter, apple butter and many other things. It is an interesting trip to visit Amish Country as we call it and see the many crafts they make from metal and many different things quilts, clocks, I can't even name them all.

I live in "The Lone Star State" – Texas, USA.

I live in Northeast Texas, and the land is fertile, lush and green. We have killer heat in the summers though… at least 30 days of heat over 105 degrees. So airconditioning is a must.

The people for the most part here are genial and friendly. We have the largest state fair in the world, and vendors and people from all over the world come here each year to visit it.

Where I live is an interesting mix, as it is urban mixed right in with the rural. If I go three blocks North, I run into cows – if I go two miles South, I'm in a busy section of town, complete with shopping, fast food and the likes.

I have lived here since 1987.

I live in a small town near Oxford, UK. We have the Berkshire downs nearby, and the river Thames, and the Cotswolds within reach. There is a very good community here, with many clubs and organisations for people of all ages.

I live in an old street with many original cottages. Not much room for parking cars, though. We have a town council that is akin to 'Clochemerle' I realise that is a bit obscure but if anyone knows the book (a comedy)you will realise what I mean. Think small town politics. – It's where you can have a heated debate for several days over what to call a street on a new housing estate!

Oxford isnt far away, with its great cultural diversity. Was it Tumbles who talked about being an intellectual? well, hon, if you want intellectuals beat a path to Oxford. It's just stiff with them.

The countryside around here is mainly agricultural, with pretty villages here and there. Lots of walking – along the Ridgeway and along the Thames. Nothing too spectacular, though, not like the Lake District, or the Border Country

Hey, I couldn't keep up with all those intellectuals, I don't think. I guess I only seem like that to some who maybe don't read as much as I do or something, but if it gets too deep, I'd be lost. Ha! Ha!
