    They dont even deliver babies at the hospital I was born in , they turned the Baby wing into a drug rehab. lol

    I was born in Independence , little podunk town on the other side of the lake from here. I may have mis voted , i have to map it and see.


    BUT
    Chris oldest 3 kids and Caleb where all born in the same hospital that he was , it is one of the oldest hospitals around in New Orleans. I always think that is cool.

    I basically still live in my hometown. lol. I'm like 10-15 minutes away, it's just labeled another city, but it might as well be the same haha.

    I did move about 45 minutes away while in high school when I lived at my dads place.

    I live like 10 miles from the hospital where I was born, and about 20 miles from the first house I lived in. My parents live about 5 miles from me now.

    I'm going to leave the area after my masters program.

    I was born in Germany, so around 4-5 thousand miles. Never really had a hometown, we always moved to much with the military. We settled down in Iowa around 3 yrs ago, this is the longest we've ever really stayed in one place and thats only because my husband was medically retired 2 yrs ago from the Army. Not sure where we'll move from here yet :)

    Neat! what city were you born in? I was born in Nuremberg, my mom was born and raised in Germany. I don't personally care much for Iowa, just haven't decided where we actually want to settle yet!

    I was born up in northern Indiana. I'm still in Indiana, but now we're more central. LOL But we're actually closer to family now than we were in the town I was born.

    I was born in Speyer which is south of Frankfurt, Ludwigshaven, and Mannheim, right next to the Rhine river.

    Where in IA do you live...there are a couple of chazzers in IA.

    I am in Madison WI now and it is pretty amazing here.
