3,500 miles South-SouthEast from London; Thessaloniki, or Salonika, is the "second city" of Greece, the capital of Greek Macedonia and a major port in the Med.

SO - a Greek Macedonian. Except for 1/32nd Roma, from the Vlach tribe (I think they were the sheppards).

Born in St. Louis but grew up in West Africa, which I still think of as "home" in the sense of where am I from. However, I have now lived in central VA since 1985, and consider it "home" in the sense of where do I live - and plan to live. My genes are 75% Eastern Europe, and 25% "American" via (by name) Hughenot France way back in 174x, and (in the interim) a Cherokee woman 6 generations back. I'm also half Jewish and half Quaker: Mom grew up an ethnically Hungarian Serb in Yugoslavia, and was liberated from Auschwitz the day before turning 16. Dad grew up a Philly-area Quaker with a Russian mother, conscientiously objected to WWII, then went to France to write about Existentialism. They met in Paris, soon after the war.

Lots of talent, good musicians and singers, and a great theater group. Very peaceful and quiet.(especially now that the tourists have gone away!) Worst thing about living here is relying on the BC Ferries for transport. I have spent "many years" waiting for ferries. Check out www.mayneisland.com (our community) for a better idea.

Parson....Welcome to the Mudcat!!! Are you gettin' rich or has all the gold panned itself out. (Been through there a time or two)

Yeah, I'll hit it again........I live in Bremen, Ohio, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus in the center of the state. I was born in Tuscarawas County over in the hills of eastern Ohio and moved to the 'burbs of Columbus at age 12. Went to Berea College in Kentucky and came back to the Columbus area. At age 30, I went to work for a company that moved me a lot and if I wasn't moving, I was flying around the country somewhere. In the process I lived in Somerset,KY--Chattanooga,TN--Cincinnati,OH--Charlotte,NC--Chicago,IL--Nashville,TN--Atlanta,GA....where I married Karen, quit, and came back to Ohio........How I wound up in Bremen is beyond me, but its a nice little town with lots of trees, brick streets, 12 streets altogether, no traffic lights, and a village oddball...which turned out to be me.
