    Okay, I'm not from New Hampshire. Heck, I'm not even from America, but I love New Hampshire a lot, and I have spent a lot of time there. I'm very fascinated by your state. It is very beautiful this time of year.

    I was a student at Keene State College.

    So, where are you from?

    I am originally from Texas, born and raised there. Moved to Connecticut with my second husband who was in the Navy in '91. Moved to Virginia in '95, lived there until Nov. '97 when we moved to New Hampshire, were we finally split last year, and I met my current husband and we currently live in Exeter.

    I was born in Massachusetts, and lived in Mansfield (south of Foxboro) for about 10 years before moving to New Hampshire. I now live in Bristol, a small town in the Lakes Region, and home to Newfound Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in North America. :D

    I'm from Goffstown. I've always lived in Goffstown... I hope I don't die in Goffstown..... *remembers quote from ROTJ*

    I was born in Libertyville, IL and raised in Grayslake, IL - about 42 miles north of Chicago and 45 miles south of Milwaukee; then moving to Central Illinois, I lived in Champaign-Urbana, IL while I went to the University of IL and was stationed at Chanute Air Force Base: I was transferred to Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, AZ in 1986 where I flew the F-16 and trained F-16 pilots and I lived in Phoenix until 2002 - with a brief respite of living in the Middle East while fighting in Desert Storm - at which time I moved up here to New Hampshire and married my wife after receiving an Honorable Medical Discharge from the Air Force 31 Oct. 2001 because of repeated injuries and surgeries to my left shoulder.

    I wish this group had formed while I lived back home! I am such a huge Star Wars fan. I lived in Penacook, NC (just north of Concord) for 8 years, and went to MVHS. I also lived in Concord and Bow when I was little.

    I just moved down to Raleigh, NC for college and joined the fanforce as it was forming down here. I go home regularly so maybe I can drop by a meeting sometime! :D I'm glad to see NH getting a group together!

    (HappyNinja I have a couple friends going to Keene State right now, beautiful area up there)

    I am new to the board but have been on this site for the last 2 or so years. It's good to see I am not alone.Any way I am from Concord most of my life. Lived in Boulder, CO for 1/2 a year and now in Dover. I don't really like the Hoth-like winters but it's do-able. So I say howdy to all!

    [color=4682b4]Welcome to the Group, we are always glad of new members. You will have to forgive us for the moment as we have been slow over the last few weeks. I am glad to see you found your way to us, and hope to see you at the next meeting, which I am working on setting up now.

    Glad to have you,

    "i don't live in NH, but i do go there to do most of my shopping."

    Isn't it supposed to be a common thing where people from Mass, and upstate NY go to places like Nashua to go shopping because of the tax-free status, or something?





    (Oh, and Hi to everyone in NH - It's been a while since I posted in here!) :)

    Yep - There is a mall in Nashua right on the state line with Mass and if I remember correctly the entire mall is in NH but part of the southern parking lot is in MA. :D

    We also do not have a state income tax.

    I was born in Dorset England. Then I moved up to Portsmouth in the "original" Hampshire a few years ago. Now I live in Exeter in Devon, England.

    "Yep - There is a mall in Nashua right on the state line with Mass and if I remember correctly the entire mall is in NH but part of the southern parking lot is in MA."

    I've been to that mall, and if memory serves, there is a Best Buy outlet right near it, where I bought my copy of Boogie Nights, and Terminator II: Judgment Day on DVD.

    And, Zethlin, I live in West Bromwich! I love Exeter, so pretty. One of my favourite cities in England.

    It's gone down hill, unfortunately. I've got good views of the Moors from where I live, but I really want to go elswhere, because I can't keep a motorcycle where I'm now living (nowhere to put it). :_|
