    Welcome aboard, Jim! You do realize that you are the sole blog representative residing in the state of Utah?

    Nate-Arkansas (recently Massachusetts)
    Matt-Maryland
    Adam-Indiana
    Kaimi-New York
    Greg-California (recently New York)
    Gordon-Wisconsin
    Russell-Arkansas

    and finally a Utahn! I guess it was inevitable :).

    Arkansas looks overrepresented.

    Dang! I guess that means we can’t invite Bill Clinton on as a guest blogger.

    Then New York would be overrepresented.

    On other hand, I’m curious as to how many of us grew up in the Idaho-Utah-Arizona corridor. I know Nate, Kaimi and I did. What about the others? Is there a Mormon diaspora going on?

    I grew up in Nova Scotia. Way back east. (Further east than New York!) Now I live in Utah. So I guess you all left to balance my arrival! ;-)

    I’m from Washington State (Spokane, specifically). Melissa was born in California, then raised (mostly) in Michigan. Our children are Southerners.

    Born in Missouri, I grew up in Germany, Japan, Arkansas, Texas, and Korea. I arrived in Utah for the first time (except for an earlier two-day stay as a tourist) in 1965 when I came to BYU for my first year. Arriving from Korea, where I had known only a few other LDS my age, I was knocked down by a wave of culture shock. I’m not sure that I’m over it yet.

    By the way, my neighbors would die of laughter if they heard someone say that I have a real job. Come to think of it, so would my wife and my children. My grandchildren wouldn’t because they don’t know or care what job I have.
