    I admit that was a rather dry reply to the question, rojo. But, then, only you, among all forumists here, would know where I was born and raised if I identify the place name. It's Sainte-Anne-de Sorel, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, also known in popular culture as "Le pays du survenant". Roughly 80 km. east of downtown Montreal.

    I'm from Wrocław, South-Western Poland. And other countries? Once I had an opportunity to go to Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia for a tournee with Visegrad Philharmonic Orchestra. That's actually quite nice memory

    Well...I live in Montreal...I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my father was British (from Leeds) my mother from Paris (French).

    I speak 3 languages pretty well: Spanish, English and French. I "try-to-speak" 3 other languages: Portuguese, Italian and Russian. I can read in those 6 languages...sometimes with some difficulties.


    Best wishes for Christmas and Hannuka

    Smile Who is from where?

    I born in Hungary and lived there for 28 years. Next was Austria in a refugee camp 4 months and now Canada. More than 30 years, Calgary, Vancouver Island, and BC. Penticton. I miss the little village or small city pipe organs in Canada. In Hungary all the village churches has pipe organs mostly Rieger organs some Angster (Hungarian) organs. 2 manual around 20 registers, but nice little organs. Here in Canada pipe organs are only in bigger places. Technology is a blessing with jOrgan, Hauptwerk etc. Cheers: Les Poloskey

    I was born in the smallest state in the USA~Rhode Island where I lived for 18 years. Joined the Navy and lived where ever I was told for 3 years returning to RI for 9 years. Then my young family and I moved to Maine where we have lived for the past 24 years.Acadia National Park is like our back yard (well kind of...)Here's a link to some pictures of Acadia~We love it here though we felt right at home in Lincolnshire (East Midlands) and might be easily persuaded to spend some (lengthy) period of time there!!http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...otos&FORM=IGRE
    I wish You Peace
