I too live close to Washington DC, although I live west, rather than south.

RedKetchup, I am curious - how often do you visit Montreal?  I'd like to think if I lived that close to a great city, I would visit often...but I live about 30 minutes from Washington DC, which is a wonderful city, yet I probably only visit 3 or 4 times per year.

Isn't that the way it is? We do go to Toronto a bit more often than @RedKetchup goes to Montreal, but that's because we have a daughter living there. When we do go I try to take the commuter train. Funny, after spending the first half of my life living in LA I now hate driving on freeways and in cities. I'm starting to get a bit irritated because Kitchener-Waterloo has developed a rush hour. OK, maybe a rush half-hour. It can take all of 20 minutes to get across town!

Wow a lot of North America here.
I am from little old New Zealand, down at the bottom of the world. Live in the capital city of Wellington.

Thanks guys,
Really enjoying the game, and glad to see a nice active community around it as well. Looking forward to posting regularly and building up some interesting villages.

My first major attempt has suffered from occasional "speed bumps" as I raced too quickly to expand pop 140-250 starvation back to 100, got to 300 with no issues, then hit 400 and starvation again, recently made it to 600, but currently back to about 480 and attempting a management plan. probably not helped by a pure lack of planning when laying out the village.

I live in a little village north of London, Ontario named Hensall.  Its claim to fame is that it is the white bean capital of Ontario.  It is rather heavily populated like retirees like myself who have shunned the big city. :)
Go not to the oracle, for it will say both yea and nay.

Seriously, [member]A Nonny Moose[/member]? I live in Waterloo and drive through Hensall occasionally on my way to various engagements. Next time I'll keep my eye out for a wandering moose.

I'm confused (no surprise).  I haven't any trouble recognizing moose before, so does 'nonny' mean something unusual?

Dohh!  :o

The chair of my department at work is Canadian, so when I see something I don't 'get' I assume it might be a national/cultural difference.  Sort of embarrassing to see I just missed a pun.  ;D  Thanks.
