Since I came to MS in May I have had a few questions relating to the fact that on my profile I say I live in Germany. Some people whom I have gotten to know really well here have taken that to mean that I am German myself, and they have wondered at my command of English.
To be honest I didn't think of this when I registered. At first I didn't really know what I would find on the site, and I absolutely never dreamed that I would be able to post as much as I have.
I do live in Germany! But in origin I am German-American: one part of my family were Protestants who left Bavaria in 1848 and came to the States, and the other part is native American - the Cree of northern New York state. Now I am back in Germany, so in a way I guess it's full circle.
Hope that clarifies things for anyone who was wondering.
