Peace, Jack!     That is so beautiful and would be even more so for me if you told me that those two by the bench are GrandKids, eh?        *smile*

        I'm not sure what my tired old eyes see there, but I enlarged the picture on my screen, and I think I see the pitter-patter of little foot prints on the benches ???

                       Better get back to work and preaching at an Advent Vesper Service this evening!

Australia.  Born, bred and continue to live in Brisbane, the capital of the state of Queensland on the East Coast. 

 

This is shot of inner city Brisbane.

 

 

I live out in the Northern Suburbs of Brisbane, and the following is an arerial shot of my part of Brisbane....

 

 

Brisbane is quite a large area.  The below map gives a rough perspective with the red cross on it roughly marking the region where the above aerial shot, looking out to Bramble Bay would be located.  While earlier photo of the city centre would be roughly where the word Brisbane appears on this map.

Afraid they are not grandchildren, since they are made of concrete Big Smile. We do have 8 grandchildren and 7 great ones, though.

Sorry Lynden ... no angel fins in the NT canon. And since as you've graciously pointed out many times to us violators, discussing why angels have wings and not fins, as an important issue in ancient religions, shall remain undiscussed (except in the Bahamas of course!). I'd of never guessed you'd be in the Bahamas. Lucky!!

I hope you are referring to rank and not value.  Wink  Big Smile  [I'm sure that's the case, but it sounds funny.]

Bruce Dunning:

On another thread the discussion drifted to the fact that not all Logos users are from the USA. Does anyone know the breakdown of Logos users by country?

What country are you from?

I'm from Canada!

Thanks everyone for participating. It really shows how international the Logos community is.

Since everyone is adding more specifics to where they life I should add that I'm not only from Canada but more specifically Haliburton, Ontario.

Peace, Bruce!     *smile*            What a wonderful thread this is - indeed -  eh???

           Please, Bruce!  You must send a picture of the part of God's Country that you live in!

Okay, wanted to jump in on this fun thread!

I'm originally from USA (OH, KY, NM, PA and FL) but have been in gByEkLpAhRvUcS for about 7 years. (If you ignore the small letters, you can read where I am. Have to be a bit careful security-wise.). Basically we are here to help the children as much as we can, particularly through adoption. We live in what is for all practical purposes a dictatorship, so its kind of a challenge at times as we don't have much freedom.

I don't really have any pretty pictures to show...(and I really don't know how, or whether it is secure). But there isn't anything particularly attractive here in my view (although the capital has some nice buildings). Others might see it differently. I try, but life here can be pretty hard for people, and things are really primitive and run-down by Western standards. I can be spoiled sometimes Sad  But I can say that God has really, really blessed us.

In any case, i have the most beautiful wife in the world, so that makes up for it! I still have something beautiful to look at every day... and this beauty comes with true spiritual beauty as well! Plus, this year we were able to adopt a little girl (the first of what we hope will be many)! She makes it all worth the trials and sufferings we've endured in the process.

Logos has been an amazing blessing to me. I lost my very large print library about ten years ago, and built up my Logos library slowly to replace it (still working on that!). But to have access to such a library in my rural, primitive circumstances is just amazing and is an incomparable blessing! Study has always been my easiest path to closeness with God. My spiritual life would suffer greatly without the opportunity to read and study and to have my library with me.

We have recently moved to an old village house in what is for here a really nice village. (if someone can tell me how to post a pic securely, i can try to send that). We have had to remodel it to make it liveable, which has been quite a challenge (especially putting a foundation under the place, as there wasn't any before). Right now, there isn't a roof, but we have a couple of guys working on it. We've had a couple of feet of snow and it was minus 15 C when we got up this a.m... and winter is just starting. But I'm excited that we will (hopefully) have a roof for Christmas!

Now, if we can just get... floors!!

Oh, how happy! I'm glad! I used to want one more kid (though not by adopting) but now it's getting about as impossible as it can get (no I'm not talking about barrenness).

There appear to be lots of us in Canada. I'm originally from the US, but have been living in Vancouver BC since 1996. Came up here to study theology at Regent College and never left. Here's a bit of why I find this place hard to leave:

I would love to visit Canada, and US also especially to catch up with my many Logos friends in both, and of course to take in the breath taking scenery that God created.  Sweden was also be cool to visit Unix, anywhere really there was fellow Logos users.  I have family connections in UK, specifically Scotland where my Dad was born so that's a no brainier on the places to visit.  Ok so I probably won't make all those places so appreciate everyone sharing their pictures of where they call home.
