I was born in Tokyo, moved to MA when I was 7, moved around a bit within the state and a brief stint in New Hampshire, was overseas for a year, and now live in Oakland. I would love to live in Melbourne, Australia at some point in my life.
I'm in the US now, but was born in Tokyo if that countsIt definitely counts, 3.0...who would I have to argue with? ----------------------------------------I'm from Auburn, Maine transplanted to Iowa for 30+ years.
I live in Bermuda now,I have one question after having been there twice. How, pride, do you Bermudans not kill 3/4s of us Americans who rent mopeds there and make left and right turns directly into traffic because we can't get used to driving in the left lane?

This is a wonderful thread. As Jeff indicated, we regularly receive visitors from over 100 countries around this old world. I would expand a bit on that. The numbers Jeff provided reflect a very short range sample. I would add that internet visitation numbers are notoriously skewed also and the issue becomes greater the further away from the U.S. the statistics are gathered.For an example, we know we have some "unique visits" and "unique visitors" that may in fact represent dozens if not hundreds of individuals connecting to CB on multiple occasions. So for instance, when we see visitors from Yemen, we don't know if we are seeing one American abroad just checking in, or a large number of local persons as well who love basketball and are hooking up with us on a regular basis.Here's another interesting tidbit. Any sampling of CelticsBlog visitation will produce a list of at least fifty language variations. Yep, that's not a typo folks. The top ten include two forms of English, two forms of Spanish, French, Italian, German, Chinese, Portuguese and a large number of computers that are configured to handle many languages. After those ten, the list becomes truly fascinating.There's an interesting offshoot from this as well. You wouldn't believe how much our auto-translation service is used. Thanks to Google providing developers like myself with access to their technology, we currently offer automatic translation of around 99% of everything in this website into nine different languages.It is not a perfect system. The translations are not always the best and are for the most part "read only". Still, they have expanded the usability of CelticsBlog in a major way and many people put them to good use. When Google finishes the testing of their new Arabic translation system, I look forward to adding it to our website.In my years, I've done some touring of the Earth. I won't recount those excursions here other than to say they occupy nearly all of the top rankings of profound experiences I've been granted in this life. Thus when I come to CelticsBlog, there is nothing more special to me than seeing the constituency of this assemblage. Yo Denmark, Yo Yemen, Yo Puerto Rico. Thank you all for the blessing of your presence in this place.BTW, I'm originally from Kentucky, USA. Naturally, that explains my obsession with basketball.
