I have noticed that we seem to have many visitors from many countries. We are pleased to be able to provide a format that makes possible such global communication. Now I'm curious as to just how many and where we are all from?

I come from an itty-bitty-teeny-weeny city called Kuala Lumpur in West Malaysia which is far-far away, made famous by Formula One car races, tallest twin towers in the world, most happening food and people in the region of Southeast Asia... <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> Plenty of Keris, parang and goloks too!!! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

I'm from Kortrijk, a small town in Belgium with a long history (in Roman times it was called Cortoriacum), which is about a 90 km (55 mi) from Brussels (our capital) where I work.

From the land of the meat pie, Fosters and rubber thongs (the sort you wear on your feet <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>). What a rich cultural heritage <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>. That's Sydney, Australia.

Don't worry that the world might end tomorrow, in Australia it's tomorrow already.

While I have lived in Bala Cynwyd, PA for many years, I've also done some traveling.

I've grew up in Brooklyn, NY and lived in Boston, MA; Washington DC; Montreal Canada; Boulder, CO; Wichita Falls, TX; Great Falls, MT and Tokyo, Japan. I've also traveled extensivly in Southern Califoria; Paris, France; and the West Country and London in England.

I was well treated in my foreign travels, but I have to say "America! What a Country!"

One way or the other, you pay for your tools!
