Not now, But for 5 years I worked at Norad in Colorado Springs. No pictures, of course, as they don't allow cameras inside the mountain. I get a thrill whenever I am watching Stargate and they show the tunnel I use to travel through to work every day. The inside did not look a whole lot like the show though.

Now I'm at Holloman AFB in New Mexico where I get to see the F-117 Stealth jets every day (no pictures of them either).

I gotta find a famous place to work where cameras are allowed.

I live in Vancouver, BC, CDN, which is more infamous than famous for its liberal views, availability of pot, drugs, micro breweries and the sheer amount of glass built into its downtown architecture, in an earthquake-prone region.

When you step away from it all and block out everything man-made with your thumb or index finger (!), it looks like paradise.


I live right down the way in Bellingham Washington. We are in the NW corner of the state. We've recently been named in a number of Top 10 cities but I'm hoping nobody noticed. I don't want Bellingham to get any bigger. Our claim to fame is that we are within two hours of Seattle, Vancouver, Mt Baker and the San Juan Islands. And we are one of the cities with the cleanest and most healthy air. We have parks and trails all over the city and are known for the Ski to Sea race that happens each spring. But shhh, don't tell anybody. ;) Ann

I used to live next door to the guy who knew the lady who cleaned for the man who was the uncle of the elder Johnson who had worked on the car of the guy who’s wife was once married to the guy who’s great grandfather was related to an old Indian scout who once rode with Custer, I think.

I live near the site of the former Marineland park and the Ocean Trails golf course which Donald Trump now owns. You may have heard that Trump offered the winner of his tv show a management position at his hotel or the golf course or something like that. Hmm, nothing else special about the area such as Los Angeles or Hollywood, etc. :)

Oh yeah, I work in Vernon, CA and our building is very old (circa 1930s) and was supposedly built by the Bohemian Beer Company although a brief Google search resulted in no useful information. Our building was then purchased by Fluor Corporation (or something like that) and was a US Military contractor that built missles or some stuff. Now we own the building and we manufacture disposable plastic labware such as test tubes. Boring, I know. :)

Theres to many to name from SC or even just the area that I have lived in.
Some of our friends hang out with Edwin Mccain, we were supposed to go to his house and get some chain link fence that he was giving away. He had told a friend of mine about giving away to anyone that wanted it and that friend told us.. we never made the arrangements to go get it.
