Hmmm.  We seemed to bounce between a few different places, mostly.
Berkeley, California;
New Guinea (6 months, but I was only 1 1/2 so doesn't really count);
back to Berzerkley until aged about 6 or 7;
then 6 months trundling between England, Israel and Victoria, Australia;
Auckland, New Zealand (12 months);
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (12 months);
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (5 years);
Berkeley, California (6 months);
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (6 months);
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia (8 years);
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (more than 8 years).

Whether that makes me a Melbournite, a Brisbanite or a Californian, I'm
not sure.  I can't really be a Melbournite, I won't barrack for any
footie team.

          Don't move. It must have been a dud. Sorry about that.
