    All those states polls made me think of this.

    In know that the majority of BB members are in the US, but I wonder how may of us are in a different country.

    Let us know one way or the other. If you live some where else let us know where.

    Like David & Matt I too hail from the UK, presently residing and ministering in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoke-on-Trent, but originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, (ahh, the glorious six counties!), here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belfast

    Incidentally, my parent's home, and my birthplace is at the foot of the Cavehill which is pictured under the "Geography" section of the above article. Can't be more specific than that, can I?

    So, although you yourself are from Pembroke, does the fact that you're 'Welsh Welsh' mean that your family hail from north of the Landsker?

    Hello Matt,
    My mother was a Geordie, Dad was from Neath Glamorganshire, neither spoke Welsh. I learned Welsh in Grammar school, and still use it whenever I have the opportunity, unfortunately not many are Welsh speaking in Pembrokeshire. Lately though, a lot more are becoming learners, and I sometimes get the opportunity to use the beautiful language.
