That's my fault. The town I grew up in IS where I'm from, and where I still 
am. I tend to forget that some people actually (shudder) move. I live a few 
hundred metres from  the house where my great great grandfather lived... My 
great grandfather lived there. My grandmother lived there until 1963, my 
parents and sister until 1956... I was born the year after they moved 100 
metres to a new house. I lived there until I was 16, then moved 30 m to 
another house, and then, five years later, a further fifty or so to my 
present one, where I have been for nearly 30 years.
