Matt here checking in from western MD about an hour and a half from the factory. Lived here all my life but living in Texas doesn't sound all that bad either but then I would have to find a balance between my guitar love and love for guns.:eek:
I live in the state "the stars fell on", Alabama...
We have beautiful white sand beaches down at the Gulf of Mexico...
Hyundai's are made here...
Some of the things that go on down here are just out of this world...
The dude playing guitar was kind of a big deal...
And this was a fairly significant day in our history...
So, as you can see, it's kind of a mixed bag here...
I grew up somewhere else but where I live now...
...is where the guy on the left is from
...this is a very popular sport here
...here is their best-known product built from wood
...and this is the local religion
...this is the alcoholic beverage of choice
Here's the town where I grew up.
A famous offshore landmark there (although it's technically in the next town over)
Known for these boats
Which head out in search of these
Home for the last 22 years...
We have this:
Some of this:
Homes of all sizes...
I have a lot of friends spending a lot of time in Potomac, Jamie - the US Postal Inspection Service has their academy there.
Linving in Nafplio Greece, which was the first capital of modern Greece from the revolution of 1821 until about 1834.
Beautiful city 140km south of Athens. Very nice both in the summer with lots of nice beaches but also in the winter, as it is very beautiful and relaxing biking around the city, eating out in a lot of nice places etc...
The city has a couple of old castles, one of which is in the center of the port.
The following photos were taken by me from a boat in the port.
In this photo you can see the castle in the middle of the port called Burtzi (from the arabic word Burj which means castle) and the old city on your left.
In the following picture, having Burtzi on my back, you can see the old city and the first castle on top, Acronafplia, which is now a hotel and restaurant.
Leaving the port of Nafplio you can see (on the small hill) the side of Acronafplia and on the bigger hill behind the Cruise ship the biggest castle which is called Palamidi.
Not that these are the best photos, but here is another nice one found on the web.
View from Palamidi Castle:

springfield,mass...Basketball was invented here at Spfld.college...The first horseless carriage was built here...We are the home of Smith&Wesson firearms...The M1 carbine and rifle were designed and manufactured here..Indian motor cycles were designed and manufactured here..Dr seuze lived here as a child on Mullberry st. I'm not sure if he wrote some of his stories here...This short accounting of the history of springfield,mass. is the reason why we are known as the CITY OF FIRSTS. We are also known as the CITY OF HOMES,as there are many pre world war one victorian homes,wich you can tour around the x-mass holidays. the owners open them to the public for a time,during the holidays!!! The city was incorperated in 1636,so that accounts for the rich history it has amassed!!!!!!!
I'm from a town in the UK, the centre of England to be precise, known as the Midlands. It's the town where both Robert Plant and Phil Lynott where born, our town has a long history going back so far it is in the Domesday book, it was then called simply Bromwic! My home town is West Bromwich. If you listen to Led Zep (the sessions at the BBC) you'll here Planty say "I've got the West Bromwich blues" when he's ad-libbing at the end of Whole Lotta Love. I'll try to add a couple of pics of my local area when it's light.
A lot of great entries here gang, keep 'em coming!
I live in North Carolina...
