Where is here?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

It is common in the posts on this board to reference "here". Down here, up here, over here. Here must be sorta hilly to account for the up and down. However, I have yet to see anyone say they are from the center of here. If you are from here, I would like to know where it is located.

Well, I'm from the middle of nowhere!!! Saskatchewan, Canada -- and it's been snowing like crazy here!!!

-- Tracy (trimmer@westzone.com), November 06, 2000.


I note you did the same thing. That's why I use Ken S. (how I have signed non-legal things for years) and WC TN for West-central Tennessee). Have noted a couple of others to start to do something similar. I agree, often an answer depends on your location.

-- Ken S. in WC TN (scharabo@aol.com), November 06, 2000.

Is "here" anywhere close to "around here somewhere"? If it is, I need to know so I can notify the Police. They are looking for "the imfamous DUDE".

Everyone who comes into the ER with their face looking like they kissed a chainsaw says, "DUDE hit me"! "Dude, run me off the road"! "I just walked out the door of this bar and this Dude hit me w/ a ball bat"!.

And when the cops ask where "Dude" would be found at, it's ALWAYS..."around here somewhere"

So, do your civic duty and find "Dude" and his hideout, located "around here somewhere."

This has been a public service announcement from us, over here. John

I will agree with the Stalking Bull -- that is why I always specify in my posts about garden matters what zone I live in...or what climate. It makes it easier for people to help out...wish more people would remember that the computer screen, like the tv screen, only works in one direction.

-- Julie Froelich (firefly1@nnex.net), November 06, 2000.

Stick a map on the wall and I'm up here in New Jersey.

-- Dee (gdgtur@goes.com), November 06, 2000.

-- gene ward (gward34847@aol.com), November 06, 2000.

Bugtussle is in Oklahoma?!? I thought it was in Tennessee!

My "here" is south central Wisconsin, zone 4B.

-- Joy Froelich (dragnfly@chorus.net), November 07, 2000.

Where is here? Since I'm not there to answer you, it must actually be "there", not "here."

Notforprint in South Central Kansas

-- Notforprint (Not@thekeyboard.com), November 07, 2000.

If your coming from town, take 21 up Heck's Hill, past the corner that used to be Lower's John Deere place, to Westbrook's Corner, turn north, go to the old Case farm corners, turn right to the next road turn north and we're the first place on the east (the DeGarmo farm). This was the way we used to tell folks how to get to our place. Now few people know the landmarks or which direction is north or east. I think this way of giving directions is another one of those historical things that is going by the wayside. By the way, you start out in central Michigan.

Here's 'bout an hour and a half from Indpls, Louvil and a little less from Cincinnata. {:~)

-- Cindy (atilrthehony_1@yahoo.com), November 07, 2000.

In the middle of north central Ala!@#$%&Bama. I try to always reference the location when neccessary, but may change the signature cookie to reflect it as Ken suggested.

-- Jay Blair (jayblair678@yahoo.com), November 07, 2000.

Oh, we're right next to Rainwater's. Yes, Browning is just the other side of us. The old farmhouse. Yes, Hayes' old place. Oh, really? You used to rent there? This is how every conversation goes when someone asks where we live. Oh, but you all don't know all that. We're right here in north central IL. Zone 4.5. Where it's been rainy and very windy.

-- Jean (schiszik@tbcnet.com), November 07, 2000.

HERE, is Oregon, (OR) southern Oregon, on Coyote Creek.

-- Hendo (OR) (redgate@echoweb.net), November 07, 2000.

Right now my "here" is in central NH, the beautiful -- touristy -- Lakes Region. Where much of the year local residents are outnumbered by tourists and summer residents. Hopefully next year my "here" will change to northern Maine, where there are more potato farmers than tourists (well, maybe!).

-- Kathleen Sanderson in NH (stonycft@worldpath.net), November 07, 2000.

Here is in Southeast Missouri, near the Mississippi River, north of the bootheel, on a high breezy hill,on 27 acres with too many dogs. (Just got another coon hound) Mona Lea

Use to be New Orleans, now it's not in New Orleans anymore, 40 miles away.


-- Judy Murray (jmurray@tulane.edu), November 07, 2000.

Here is 50 miles east of Springfield Mo. I am just aroung the corner and down the road a bit from the cemetary. gail

-- gail missouri ozarks (gef123@hotmail.com), November 07, 2000.

I am WAY OUT HERE clinging to the edge of the continent, squished between extinct volcanos, rain forest and the Pacific Ocean, enjoying the sub-tropical climate of the West edge of Olympic Penninsula of Washington.

We are 70 miles from the nearest WalMart and beyond the range of Beaurocrats who want to be home in time for dinner.

-- Laura (gsend@hotmail.com), November 07, 2000.

Its not the end of the world but I can see it from here.

-- William in WI (thetoebes@webtv.net), November 07, 2000.

Is that better?I tried this on another site and people thought i was a doctor!

-- renee oneill{md.} (oneillsr@home.com), November 07, 2000.

Here, about 50 miles west of Mpls, MN where I think the local telephone company use barb wire fences as the most current and updated telephone lines.

-- Bill (sticky@2sides.tape), November 07, 2000.

We're in south central Indiana, in Brown County. Nearby towns are such busy metropolises as Bean Blossom, Gnaw Bone, and Needmore! Hubby thinks it's gettin' a bit TOO crowded; he wants to go to Alaska; I want to opt for the hills of West Virginia, or maybe the Missouri Ozarks. But I doubt we'll ever move; our parents aren't gettin' any younger, and they live close by.

-- Tracy Jo Neff (tntneff@ifriendly.com), November 07, 2000.

Since no one has asked the ultimate question, "Why are we here?, I will. I think this is because we are still trying to find out where here is (I think thats what we are doing) and defining that would probably be good before we answer why so may the saga continue from the center of there which is here - actually from the end of there or turn right following the t or could it be due east on the map (now I'm very confused about it all). For the record I'm not originally from around here but further west so would that be there? (Don't ya love it when people answer a quest with another?)

-- TLS-C (tacres@yahoo.com), November 07, 2000.

Right now "here" is Binghamton, NY. I recently bought land just outside of Hartville, Missouri. (Gosh, I like the sound of that!) I can't get there soon enough. Then, there will be "here", and if you see gail outside, you'll know you just passed my place!

-- Cathy Horn in NY (hrnofplnty@webtv.net), November 07, 2000.

JLS, you can also check out the uncategorized thread and look for the question "Where are you living?" started by sheepish.

-- Phyllis (almostafarm@yahoo.com), November 07, 2000.

There is no place just like this place any place near this place, so this must be the place. Here for me is a log house in the woods on 40 acres, near US 50, near Olney, IL, approx. 125 mi. east of St. Louis and 30 miles west of Vincennes, IN--also 15 miles or so from little brother hoot.

-- ruth (bobtravous@email.com), November 07, 2000.

Here is close to the base of Mt. Rainier--a stones throw from the Nisqually River, in the most rednecked part of the States capitol-in Washington State!

-- Doreen (animalwaitress@excite.com), November 08, 2000.

Here is south central Kentucky. Good idea about putting the location in the signature.

-- Doug in Kettle, KY (toadshutes@yahoo.com), November 08, 2000.

Lynn I dont know about that, my part of the state has alot of really big, high off the ground, loud, pickup trucks often refered by the owner as my truuck, and the snoose sales are pretty high at the local store. I thought we had a corner on red necks near chehalis. ronda
