Am not trying to be nosey. And of course no one here has to reply to this.  I was just curious is all.  Some of us have posted our location and other of us haven't.  And I was just curious where we all were from.  ANd I'm by no means asking for ya'all address.  Just General area.  LOL.  I'm from NE Ohio, USA.  
I know of at least one other member from my area... and Understand from some of the posts that we have quite a few memebers from UK and canada..    SOrry if this is to forward, am just curious.
