Default Spinoff: What country are you from?

Where were you raised (mostly)?

You can also share where you were born and/or where you live now.

I was born and raised in the U.S., where I still live.

This came from Piglet's "Holiday in the USA" thread, in which she said, "I know there are one or two Americans on here...[nc.com]." I giggled at first because I assumed she was joking, but maybe she wasn't. I also assumed the majority of boardies here are Americans, but maybe that's not true either.

I was born in the Dominican Republic and have lived in New York (Astoria) since I was eight. It tends to shock people when I mention that I'm not a US citizen. If I can get things in order, I will be soon.

Born, raised, and live in the USA.

But I lived in Germany for many years while stationed there, it's like a second home to me.

I'm a Brit. Born here, raised here, still here.

(I was joking about the one or two Americans thing. It's my British sense of humour.)
