I am a native of Baltimore, MD. We are often referred to as Baltimorons by people who come to live here from "outside". Though close to DC (40 miles or 2 hours in traffic which is most of the time!) we are very different towns. Most folks have lived here all their lives and for generations. Just a big small town. My favorite acivity is riding my Clydesdale horse. He lives at a farm not far from my house. My daughter and I like to wander around the farm and the state park next door. My family is very important to me. I don't like my daughter living so far away but she loves CA and is not coming back east. I don't blame her! CA is beautiful ! I have looked forward to her special day for a long time. We are also huge Ravens fans!
