Oh I've definitely eaten there before (I was in A2 for 6 years), but I didn't frequent it by any stretch of the imagination. I actually preferred this other shop in town, Maize N Blue Deli. Mmmmmmm. 8)

Zingerman's is probably a roadfood hall-of-fame type of place. It's very well known among people for whom roadfood is a hobby.
I was in Ann Arbor when I was 12, but I hadn't developed a strong food sense yet. :wink: I'll keep the other place you mentioned in mind if I ever get back there.

Interesting question.

Home to me has always been Sydney, Australia.

I referred to Sydney as home even when I lived in London for 2 years
and in Philadelphia for 10 years. I guess, home was also Piestany
in Czechoslovakia but that was before I came to Sydney.
So, yes, I would say Sydney is my MUCH LOVED HOME.

I have been a resident of Sainte-Anne-de-Sorel for some twenty years, of Edmonton, Alberta, for three years, of Greenfield Park, south shore of Montreal, for twelve years, and of Old Town, Maine, for close to 25 years. That's four for me.

Jacques,

I knew that you are from Canada too but Greenfield Park south shore of Montreal. Cool!!!! That is were I was born (sure you could tell which hospital). Nice to read about this town on CMG. I lived in Saint-Hubert south shore of Montreal for 22 yrs. Ottawa for 7 years and now Gatineau since 2 years (some would argue that it is the same as Ottawa). My fiancee and I should move back to Ottawa sometimes in the next fall.

I have always been a huge fan of Maine. It is simply beautiful up there. One day, I would like to hear what made you moved to Maine.

My wife and I will be vacationing there in May-June. I love it too, although I've only been to the southern portion of the state (and that's where we'll be this year too). I plan to eat my weight in lobster that week!

I'll arbitrarily pick one year as the minimum time for a city to be "home" for me.

Detroit, MI and suburbs (Mt. Clemens, MI and Grosse Pointe Woods, MI)--17 yrs
Kalamazoo, MI--4 yrs
Charlottesville, VA--3 yrs
Washington DC and environs (various DC, VA, MD addresses)--27 yrs
The Hague, Netherlands--1 1/2 years
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia--3 years

Hopital Charles-Lemoyne. I actually worked there as a graduate student, during my days at McGill. Did just about everything except obstetrics and pediatrics. No chance of having been there when you were born.:lol:

What made me move to Maine was a good job. But it was not as easy as it sounds. Being a Canadian citizen, my Maine employer had to submit a formal affidavit to the effect that it could not find, in all of the USA, a person with my expertise. And, btw, I wonder what Adam Smith would have said about that too!!!

Home is wherever I have hung my hat for more than 12 weeks in perm housing and my family has come to visit or stay:

Uniondale, NY
West Islip, NY
Plattsburgh, NY
Sayville, NY
Bayshore, NY
Washington, DC
Matinsburg, W.V.
Fesno, CA
Austin, TX
Andover, MA
Memphis, TN
Philadelphia, PA
Kansas City, MI
Ogden, UT
Cincinnati, OH
Sloatsburg, NY
Boxborough, MA
Scarsdale, NY
Hartsdale, NY

For a long time I maintained two homes at once and commuted between them.
Anyone recognize who I worked for several years?

Cities? Most places I lived were Air Force bases outside cities - not really the bush, but hardly Downtown as sung by Petula Clark.

Our house in the Blue Mountains (Mont Riverview was not urban in those days) had a marvellous view over all of Sydney - on a clear day one could just make out the Harbour Bridge. The lights at night were as beguiling as the stars sometimes.

Even when posted to London, after a stay in Bayswater we relocated to East Molsey (Hampton Court to those who don't live there) where the Thames was literally across the street. From Hapmton Court Palace, one could one could walk on grass through Bushy Park, Wimbledon Common and most of the way into the city amongst the trees. Go the other way, or down the river, and it was pure Surrey. Wonderful, and London was also an easy train ride - if it was too cold or wet - for someone used to going into Sydney from way out in the Blue Mountains, but not living in a city.

Canberra, although it has a few hundred thousand souls, is such a bush-land sprawl (I'm a few hundred metres from a working farm, and the other side of that are the National Botanic Gardens at Black Mountain) is also hardly city living.

Lived all around the world, and perhaps the only place that qualifies is San Antonio - and I barely remember it. Certainly not as an urban jungle - although the kids in the neighbour hood didn't have guns, dogs and hawks like we did in Alabama.

So - 0. Never have.

21+, including towns too small to be cities, places in the country near towns, and Air Force bases. I settled down ten years ago and have no intention of moving again (at least not as long as we're able to stave off incorporation of the farm land to the south of us!).

Only 2, or, possibly 3.

I was born in Chicago. When I was 4, we moved to a western suburb called Elmhurst, IL. If you want to call Elmhurst a city, that would be one, too. I lived there until I graduated from college. Then moved into Chicago when I was on my own, and lived there all my working life. Now, I live in Albuquerque, NM. I went to college in Maryville, MO, but I never considered that home.

1 Chicago 1942-1946.
2 Elmhurst 1946-1967.
3 Chicago 1967-2002.
4 Albuquerque 2002-present.

My sister had a different story. She went to college at the Univ of New Mexico. She married an architecture student the year they both graduated. Then he got a job working for an architectural firm in Philadelphia, and for a number of years, they lived in Elkins Park, PA, a burbie of Philly, where my nephew was born. Then, they spent a number of years in Salina, Kansas, when he got a job as an architect in a firm there. My niece, Jessica, was born there. After that, they moved back to Albuquerque, where he started his own firm with another architect he had known while a student at UNM. They were married for 18 years, then divorced. He eventually moved to San Diego where he now works as an architect and lives with his girlfriend on a houseboat. My sister stayed in Albuquerque forevermore, where she is a facility manager for the Amtech Div of Transcore Corp. Although they grew up mostly in Albuquerque, my nephew and niece now both live in cold climes--he is a first officer for Northwest Airlines and lives in Eagan, MN, and she is the senior curator at the Amherst Museum in Amherst, NY, right next to Buffalo. He was in the Navy and then in Daytona Beach, FL before Minnesota; she went to college in Tacoma, WA and grad school at SUNY-Cooperstown. I hear they have some kind of museum there where incipient curators can practice. :wink:

If you consider suburban Maryland between Baltimore and Washington to be a city, that's one. The town where I grew up, Cornwall, NY is another, and where I currently live, Stony Creek, NY is the third. I don't count the migratory rest stops my military family pinged around to for the first eight years of my life, and the three other places I have lived--Princeton, NJ; New Haven, CT; and Bamberg, Germany--were decidedly not, as the military says, my "permanent home address."

Lancaster, PA where I was born and grew up. Not my own choice, of course, it's where my father taught. Finally he moved on to Brown U., too late to do me any good. :(

New York City, immediately after college when I was finally free to choose where to live. This is my real hometown, and I've never had a second thought about it.

I'm at three:

1. Ottawa, Ontario
2. Halifax, Nova Scotia
3. Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen

The odds of me staying here in Düsseldorf at least for the beginning of my doctoral work (as opposed to moving to the city where my supervising faculty is--either Berlin, Weimar, Dortmund, or Aachen) are pretty good, so I don't expect to be adding a new name to this list at any time in the near future.

^ Yes, und auf Deutsch, natürlich.

According to the TestDaF Institute all the time(/money) I invested in German intensive courses have paid off and I'm able to carry out academic work. Whether or not I'm able to carry out idiomatic everyday conversations with lots of charismatic figures of speech is another question, but I'm working on it... ;)

Well, I wasn't really a conscious human being at 6-9 yrs of age, but I still got a lot out of it. We were there 1952-1955. My dad was Army. In those days the brass tried to assign Catholics to Italy when they could, and it was known that my mom was Catholic (that's a whole nother story). Those were the days too before flying became the norm, so they paid for us to sail over. It took two weeks to arrive at Trieste because we stopped at Gibraltar, Cairo, Istanbul, Greece, and finally Trieste. It was great. We were in Trieste for 1 year, were chased out by Tito threatening to invade and reclaim Trieste, and were evacuated to Livorno for 2 years to finish out the tour. In Livorno we lived right across the street from the sea. I loved being there, had Italian pals I hung with, was taught Italian in the DoDDSS system for 3 years. I want to go back some time to see how it's all changed. There's still an installation in Livorno, Camp Darby, named for the Darby of Darby's Rangers.
