Sweden

 Re:

I found a nice map too, if some of you don't know where Sweden is. (I guess you don't, huh?) Well, Sweden is not Switzerland, anyway... ;-) I've heard that that is a common misunderstanding in the USA... :-D

Anyway, the flag shows where Gothenburg is. [img align=left]http://www.goteborg.com/upload/bilder/265x265_ny/gbgguide/gbggui.jpg[/img]Sweden is a very streched out country and therefore the wheather differs a lot between the north and the south. At the moment it is early spring in the far north and late spring/early summer down here.

 Re: Where do you live?

That's a picture of the Pacific Coast Highway, in Southern California. If I remember correctly, it runs down along the whole coast of California, I think even starting in the northern neighboring state of Oregon. The view is very pretty along there, which this picture I found on the Internet doesn't really show. But hey, it's a picture!

I don't have a picture of the exact community I live in, but it's called Escondido. Everything around here has a Mexican name. I wonder why??? (FYI, that was sarcastic).

Don't know how many people live here, but there's a lot! I love California! We have everything here! I live in a valley, but 20 minutes to the west are lots of lovely beaches, maybe an hour or so to the east is the desert, a couple hours to the north are beautiful tree covered mountains, and to the south are our lovely Mexican neighbors.

Yes Hollywood is here. No, I haven't seen any actors. And we have lots of amusement parks like the first, original Disneyland and Six Flags, Magic Mountain.

Okay, as you can tell, I'm proud of where I live. But I think it would be cool to meet every single person in the whole entire world. I love people and cultures!

Phoenix, Arizona USA

 Re: Where do you live?

I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona. Located in the Sonoran Desert, the metropolitan area is known as "the valley of the sun" with an average of over 300 sunny days a year. Phoenix is now the 6th largest city in the USA with a population of over 1.4 million. It is growing very fast, too fast for my liking. It is very hot and dry here in the summer, very mild winters make it worthwhile though.

The first picture below is a nearby manmade lake and second is where we spend most of our summer.

 Re: Pheonix, Arizona

Pheonix, Arizona - I've been there! My jr. high youth pastor used to live out there. We spent a few Thanksgivings with him and his family. Now they live all the way over in Tennessee!

Oh, and Greg, where you live in Toronto, Canada looks beautiful! The picture of your city reminds me of Seattle, Washington, where I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow!!!!! I love that city! They remind me of each other because of that needle thing you guys have. [laughs] In Seattle it's the Space Needle. I don't know what yours is called.

Those of you who live in the south (in the United States of America, for those of you from out of country), it looks beautiful there too! I hope to see the south sometime. [laughs] I kind of am when I go to the Ukraine in June. I'll only be in the Atlanta, Georgia airport, but hey, that counts, right?! Yeah, not really.

 Re:

I live in the great state of California!

With the Pacific Ocean, deserts, mountains, endless activities, amusement parks, and ... traffic jams!

Ok, Ok! I guess I shouldn't complain. The good does out weight the bad. See...

 Re: Where do you live?

This is great everyone! Really love seeing the places we all live in. Some beautiful areas.

To clarify a bit, I currently live in Santa Clara, California but was raised in San Jose, Ca and so consider myself a native of San Jose and usually will refer to that as it is more distinct. I am about 10-15 minutes from "The Shark Tank" where my beloved Sharks play (That's a NHL hockey team for some of our other brethren, and yes we just got bounced out of the playoff's by some [i]Canadian[/i] team ) :cry:

The "Tank" (HP Pavalion)

[img]http://www.sermonindex.net/images/mike01.jpg[/img]

San Jose is a major California city and the county seat of Santa Clara County. It is located at the south side of the San Francisco Bay, within the informal boundaries of Silicon Valley. As of 2003, the city reported an estimated population of 925,000, the most populous city in Northern California, and third in the state after Los Angeles and San Diego.

This is closer to 'home' where I grew up.

In all we are within an hour of San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Gilroy (The garlic capital of the world, sometimes in the summer you can smell it) but for all that I really long to get up into the mountains where it's quiet and a whole lot [i]cheaper[/i] to live.

But then you did, and I still don't know how to do it?

 Re: How To Post A Picture

Okay, you got the photo you want to post. You right click on it, and select "Properties" from the menu. You then highlight the "Address (URL)" that'll look something like this,

http://us.a1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/a/ya/yahoo_photos/pic_l_5.jpg

and you copy it. You come back here to your post, paste the address and put it inbetween these thingys,

... arg, I can't type it, it won't let me! Ummm... hmmm... let me try to outsmart the computer. You have to put the address inbetween these: img (goes before address) /img (goes after address). And put the "img" things in these [ ] like this [img]. Okay, maybe that'll work. Sorry to have to make it complicated.

And if it's done right, you'll get something like this,
