I'm so glad to see the location line in our avatars is back. It does help to know where, as in state and/or country, our members live. Some advice works well for some locations but is not possible for others.

Just a word of caution: when answering here, or anywhere on the site, do NOT give your local address or last name. We are OK with "the nearest city is Oshkosh Kalamazoo, OH", but "my town is a tiny one called Wyoming, OH" is a little too close to home. We are an open forum, and we need to protect your identity from those who would find your homes. Have had stalker issues in the past, so don't post a picture showing your house number or mailbox, or a shipping address label, stuff like that. Sorry to sound paranoid, but it's part of our security for you. If you think you are neighbors, use the message center to contact privately. Again, use caution there, too. (But authentic bunny lovers are really nice people, so making bunny buddies is fine.)

Jersey is absolutely right - apology NOT necessary!
I thought it was an opportunity to let the members know our concerns about safety, but I love knowing where people are from. It actually makes it easier to talk about things like where to find good hay, etc. So I apologize to you if I hurt your feelings regarding this post. I really enjoy saying I have friends in Australia, New Zealand, California, Alaska, ...

I am from South Florida for the past decade, but I was born in MA. And everything Hunny said is true. Hunny, you sound quite normal to me. If I hadn't said what I did about not naming places, I could probably guess the wiked boring town. I used to live 45 min. out of Boston, aka, off the Mass Pike or 128. It's all little towns strung togetha. (I miss the Topsfield Faya.)

I'm from Northern California but moved to Florida in the middle of my high school years to take advantage of their college program. (The state will pay for a fraction of your college costs if you keep good grades.) I really don't like Florida and hope to move somewhere up north.

Bumble Fly I work with a guy who is from Mississippi! He has this really strong southern drawl and comes to work telling up about he cooks really Southern. Which is completely fascinating to me because I love food. =]

That's so cool that you're from NZ! I'm part Maori! I've never been but my grandpa has a bunch of times and he's planning on taking me. Beautiful country.

Amy, if you were in disneyland in late August, I probably saw you! lol. I was born in Cali but moved to Tx when I was 2. I went on my first out of state trip when I was 19, went to Arizona for a week with my 2 friends (who are sisters) and they went to see their family. It's dry heat up there but we mostly just kept hopping from one relative's house to another. So I didn't get to sight see a whole lot.

Peppy, the heat in Tx has been killing me! My bf has no AC in his car and it's about a 30 min drive home from work in his car...torture! lol.
It was hot in Cali too when I went, apparently it's the worst they've had all year. I was just glad we weren't sweating

I live in the Hudson Valley region, about 75min north of NYC. I really love it here. I've only lived in my town for a year, but I've been in the general area for 6 years (most in western Connecticut). It's a great combination of rural (we have lots of farms and dairies nearby), suburban, and city (with NYC so close). There are a lot of pretty little towns and wineries too.

I would absolutely love to visit NZ! It looks so beautiful. I'm also very jealous of those from the UK and I've always wanted to live there.

Orlando, Florida! Never been to Disney world, don't really care to go. Universal and sea world are ok in my book!
It rains every day at the same time. You can be standing on one side of the road while it rains across the street. Weather is crazy here. Anything lower than 70* f warrants a heavy sweatshirt.

Zoologist - that weather sounds so funny!

Here in tx, it can be cold one day during winter & then the very next day, it's just as hot as it is in summer. Last year we had...sort of snow. It was very light snow & was freezing outside but the very next morning, it was pretty warm outside & the snow melted really fast. Fun while it lasted

That's a beautiful beach sarahjean!

When I moved to Pittsburgh, PA (USA) a year ago everyone seemed awkwardly nice... and they still do to me. Sometimes I WANT them to be grumpy, just so it feels like home!

Would love to see some scenery pics of where you live!!! Thought I'd share some from where I live. (I didn't take any of these pics)

Make sure any pics are general pics only. No street names, etc.

This is one of our tourist attractions. At low tide, you can walk on the ocean floor. There's lots of whales around this area.

 

My favorite time of year! Our trees will all look like this soon.

 

Snowshoe hare. Love when I get to see these little buggers. 

 

 Moose. One of nature's weird looking animals. This is a park where I go hiking and snowshoeing.
