Where were you born?...and where do you currently reside?

Postby Marcello Cristiano on September 13th, 2010, 10:55 pm

Dear All Bakerites:

I thought I would start this topic just so we can all get to know each other even better. You don't have to participate if you feel this is getting too non-private. THANK YOU, Tracy for the idea! :) Well here goes!...

I was born February the 10th, 1978 in Niagara Falls, Ontario CANADA. I lived there til December 21st, 2001. I then moved to Port Colborne, Ontario the next day and lived there til November 21st, 2002. I then moved to St. Catharines, Ontario where I currently (happily) reside. My parents were both born in Italy so that is why I have an Italian name. I don't have an Italian accent if you're wondering, though some people say I have a Southern accent(U.S.A.) in the way I pronounce certain words, while others say I sound perfectly Canadian to them. I guess it's in the EAR of the beholder.

So feel free to participate if you want. THANK YOU.

Your friend,

Marcello
:)

P.S. A HUGE THANK YOU to TOM for answering all our questions this month. His answer to my question made me extremely happy and just goes to show what a Marvellous man TOM is for taking the time each month out of his busy life to answer all our questions. THANK YOU once again TOM. Love you.

I was an air force brat (RCAF). Born in Montreal, Quebec because that's where my mom's parents were and she went "home" to have me. Then to Belleville, Ontario because my dad was stationed at Trenton Air Force Base nearby.

From Belleville we moved to Germany and were there for 4 years. Great time for us kids because it was in the early 50's and there were still bombed-out buildings and bunkers with big gun shell casings still in them. Italy for a month every summer, Christmas every year in the Austrian alps.

From Germany, we moved to northern Quebec. My family were there for 4 years, I moved to my grandparents in Montreal after 2 years because there weren't any orthodontists in Chicoutimi.

Next posting was Oklahoma City where I went to and finished high school. Back to Canada and Ottawa where my dad retired after one year there. I stayed and they moved to southwestern Quebec. I've been in Ottawa ever since.

I have two brothers who were born in Belleville, one brother born in Germany, and my baby sister was born in Oklahoma.

Except for a brief stint working as a keypunch operator at the Canadian Income Tax department, my entire working life was spent in IT at the Canadian Department of Agriculture. I retired as a computer programmer after 36 years with the Canadian Government.

Born in DC--lived in MD for about half of my life. Taught school (learning disabled children then a middle school English teacher in a Catholic school) for a while there when I graduated from college (which I also attended in MD).

Boy! Does that seem to be in a galaxy far, far away! ;)

Now residing in PA.

Don't know what the future will hold. :)

I keep telling my youngest we need to move to the UK so we can like Dr. Who and not get weird looks from folks who like Star Trek. :lol:

I am an Air Force brat born at Fairchild AFB Washington on August 12th 1957. From there we went to Mississippi, somewhere ? I was 7 months old, where my youngest sister was born. I have two brothers and three sisters! From there we went to Grand Forks AFB North Dakota for a while. Then we moved to Alaska, Fairbanks and Eielson AFB, where I started grade school. 1st through 4th grades there was great as a kid. Then down to Hill AFB Utah for fifth and sixth grades. Then we moved to Travis AFB California where I did 3/4 of 7th grade when my dad retired from the Air force after 25 years. We then moved up to Eureka California where I finished school and enlisted in the Air Force in July 1975. I went through basic training at Lackland AFB in Texas and then spent 5 months At Chanute AFB Illinois in tech school. I was then stationed at Minot AFB North Dakota where I spent three and a bit years handling Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile down stage boosters. I finished my military duty in July 1979 and moved back to Eureka. I started college at College of the Redwoods the first fall semester and married my wonderful wife on December 27th of that year. I finished my Associates degree there and we moved to Phoenix Arizona in the late summer of 1981. I started college again at Arizona State University and graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Industrial Design in 1986. We have lived in the valley of the sun ever since and I have worked at a few companies mostly as a mechanical engineer. We have a son who is 22 years old now and two cats at the moment.

Dear Members of Tom -

Ah gee, as I have to forever remain an unknown, I have nothing I can add here. :( But this morning, at my computer station, in my little cubicle with no door, I had this sudden inspiration. :P Why don't all of you put your heads together and tell me where and when I was born? Am I an only child? Where did I get my education? Was I ever successful in growing a goatee as my smilie here would indicate? In a word, create this authenic seemingly DATA BIO EXTRACT for me. You may PM with specifics or reply right here in this topic. Then after sometime has passed, I'll synthesize everything you have surmised and Post it right here in this Topic.

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:
