    Where are you from?


    Yup, I'm starting this again. There are a lot of new posters here and I love knowing more about you. Where are you from and are you male or female? Do you have a family you'd like to let us know about? What kind of a job do you have or are you a student? You can click on my name for my bio.

    And last but not least, welcome to the forum. So glad you're here. At least until you disagree with me. :rollin: And please spell definitely correctly. :lol:

    I'm Lanie, and am from Southern California. I'm a student (junior in high school) and I skate. That's all that's worth telling.

    I'm Sheree and I live in Missouri. I'm a homemaker. I like to sew, read and watch figure skating. I've always been an excellent speller, Granny, except for the word "receive" or is it "recieve". I never get that one right!

    Re: Where are you from?


    I'm Sally from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Ive posted, on and off, at GS for the better part of a year but really don't know much about any of you. So, thanks for starting this thread.

    I'm married with two sons. My husband is a financial planner and I'm a licensed mutual fund sales representative. Has anyone noticed what "<strong><em>the markets</em></strong>" have been doing for the past couple of years? <strong>Yikes</strong> ... <strong>NOT</strong> an easy business to be in right now.

    I'm one of those rare people who loves both figure skating and hockey. My favorite skater at the moment is Evgeni Plushenko, but I'm a big fan of lots of others as well. (Favorite hockey team - Colorado Avalanche - thought I'd put that in since the playoffs ARE coming up soon).

    I love to exercise (lots of different kinds) and have a real soft spot for animals (have two adorable kitties).

    Well, there - that's probably MORE than you ever wanted to know about me!!

    Next ........

    Hi, all. I am a mathematics professor in Detroit. Married, one son, one grandson about to celebrate his first birthday. I'm 58, so for two more years I can still say that I am "middle aged." I have been posting on Golden Skate for about a year and a half, during which time the main thing that I have learned is that there are other skaters in the world besides my sweetheart MK :lol:

    Favorite Hockey Team -- the defending Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings!!!

    <span style="color:green;font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:small;">Hi all newcomers! I live in San Diego, married, one little girl. I used to be a music teacher but now I sell real estate and really love it (even through all the stress and frustrations). As for my first name, well, I have the same name as one person on this thread! :rollin:

    I promised my daughter we'd go ice skating AND rollerblading this week, as she is on school break. </span>

    Hi


    Hi all! I'm from Detroit, just like Mathman. I'm a competitive adult figure skater, and my day job is in local government. I have a husband, a great hockey playing kid, and lots of pets. Since my son started playing hockey, I've become a fan of the professional side of the sport - GO WINGS!!!

    I don't mind if you misspell "definately" - my pet peeve is using "I could care less" - that means that you do care :D .

    Mathman - are you coming to watch any of Adult Nationals in Ann Arbor? Saturday the 12th has the highest level events. The first triple landed at AN by an adult was done at the championship masters mens event last year, and he's competing again this year. Should be a good day of skating. Also, they have an exhibition scheduled for Friday night that includes adults and some of the local elite kids. To get a schedule, go to USFSA.org, Programs, Adults and there's a link to Ann Arbor's website there. I'm skating on the 12th in Gold Ladies II - no triples, though. Due to injury, no doubles either :( . But at least I'll be there!
