Where I've Lived
Hi. My name is Pat. Just posting some personal stuff about myself. I was born in New Jersey in the USA in 1947(yes, same year Elton John was born) but moved to Florida in 1956. My parents and I first lived in Orlando then moved to the east coast. I graduated from high school in Melbourne. Then we moved back to Orlando for a few months and finally settled in Pinellas County where I've lived ever since. Florida is a nice state to live in, even though much of the area where I now live has really grown a lot in the past 30+ years. There used to be farms around the north county area(in the mid 1960's) but now they are all gone. It's business and homes now just about everywhere in our county. I would love to live out in the country again some day.
Here is some information about the city I was born in - Rahway, New Jersey.
