I was born in Rochdale in Lancashire, which is now part of Greater Manchester, and still live in the area, though I spent over a quarter of a century living and working in London.

I was born in Deland Florida, its next to DeLeon Springs which was named after Juan Ponce De Leon. Cassadaga is also around the corner, a place I think Twizty would really enjoy.

It's a spooky little town that had urban legends attached to it while growing up. A place only the brave would visit the cemetery on all hallows eve.

I found this video on it. I recall hearing it was referred to as the Devils Throne and you were supposed to visit it at 3:00 at night on all hallows eve.

That looks like an interesting place traven, looks like it's steeped in history. I like that building with the little tower I guess you would call it? The closest thing we have here that you might find in Europe would be the St. Augustine fort.

I grew up in Las Vegas Nevada. I'm sure most everyone has heard of Vegas and knows about it.

I live in the largest town in the UK and Henry I is buried here, though his body has never actually been located. Oscar Wilde also stayed in our prison and wrote a poem about it.

Some interesting towns here. 8)

Since I come from a town with a big rose garden, I could be like one of the Tyrells from Highgarden from Game of Thrones. :lol: :king:

A little hick town in Michigan of about 7000 mostly racist and sexist people who still believe that 1950s TV shows like Ozzie & Harriet, Leave It to Beaver, and The Andy Griffith Show all represent "real" America.

:roll: Of course I'm exaggerating, but only a little.
