Question Of The Day


Okay, this is actually questions of the day...

So, the most amazing man in the world and I live in Kingston, Ontario. We've been here for the past 7 years. The city has about 123,000 people residing in it. Up until our move here, we lived in Montreal, Quebec, one of the biggest cities in Canada with a population of about 1.6 million.

How about you?

  1. Ok, you're making me do some research here. I live in NJ, which is the most densely populated state in the US. Yay. Our small state has (as of 2014) 8.938 million people. In contrast, the little town in which I live has (as of 2013) 7,767 people. I used to live in NYC, which is pretty crowded since it has almost as many people as the state of NJ but is only 13 1/2 miles long and 2 miles wide. Tight squeeze. btw, I love Montreal. We go there every August when my significant other has to put in his 2 weeks at the home office.

    1. You've lived in some very heavily populated areas! I haven't spent time in NJ but I have visited New York. Very dense!

  2. I live in Olathe, KS which has a population of around 133,000 but is the fastest growing city in Kansas. Olathe sits in the metro area of Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas as the city is bisected by the state line. The metro has 2.3 million people. We have lived here 10 years.

    1. Thanks for sharing your info, Cheryl! You live in a small city like we do. But it sounds like it will grow much faster than where we are!

  3. I live north of Seattle in Everett, WA where the population is around 105,000. It feels like the big city to me but we are only a short drive away from the mountains or the Puget Sound and we really appreciate having Nature and all the modern conveniences all easily accessible :o) The hubs and I each grew up in smaller towns (pop. 3,000-7,000) around different areas of Washington but we've lived here over 5 years now I think.

    1. You are right near the water! I love it. I checked some images of your area and it looks so nice. I'd love exploring it, I'm sure!

  5. We live in Glendale SC which really is barely a town. It has no mayor or town government. Our address even says Spartanburg, which is the county/city but we don't live in the city limits of Spartanburg anymore.


    Glendale has about 300-350 people

    Spartanburg county is estimated at 290,000

    1. A small place, indeed, but quite close to a larger one from my understanding.

    2. pretty much, it's easy to get to most places in spartanburg

    3. Then you get to enjoy the quiet life of a smaller while easily having access to a larger place. That is an ideal location if you ask me!

  6. I live in Woodstock, GA. The population was 23,896 at the 2010 census, but it has grown tremendously in the six years since. Also there is probably double that in the surrounding neighborhoods. Still, compared to Atlanta, it still has a small town feel about it.

    1. We have some neighbouring areas that are about that size. They have everything you need, so living in a big city is not necessary!

  7. I have lived in Edmonton, Alberta for the past 18 years. Our population (including bedroom communities) is about 1 million. Before that, I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba for 22 years where the population is about half a million. And before that, I lived in a one-horse prairie town in Manitoba, population 1700.

  11. I have lived in Jacksonville, Florida, for almost six years. The population is one million, more or less. It's a highly transient city, and also the largest city (geographically) in the forty-eight contiguous states. Take a wrong turn, and you might be in Jacksonville forever. Before I came here, I lived in Cantrall, Illinois, or at least I had a Cantrall mailing address. I actually lived in the country in the middle of a peach orchard. Cantrall is a tiny town very close to Springfield, which is the capital of Illinois. Before that I lived in a few places in Maryland. Before that I lived in Washington state. Before that I lived in Indiana, with a summer in New York state thrown in the middle. I grew up in Kansas. When people ask where I'm from, I say, I don't know.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. You have lived in so many places, so I can certainly understand your answer when people ask you where you're from!

  12. I'm quite close to you .... Hastings, Ontario. Population 1,000.
    Except in the summer when all the cottagers and tourists show up. Then it's about 3,000.

    1. Yes, you are very close to me! A day trip. I don't think we've been to your area yet, despite having done so many road trips. Now I'm curious...

    1. You're so lucky! At the very least, I would love to see the Pacific Ocean one day. I'd never take that for granted either!

  14. I live in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona (113º yesterday which is common for us in summer it seems). Phoenix is the 6th largest city in the U.S. with a population of over 1,500,000. There are a bunch of very warm people here right now! We go to the movies often also.

  15. Just found this great true quote about our Sonoran Desert here in Phoenix: "The water that came last winter is long gone. "Female rain," it's called in Navajo: the gentle, furtive rains that fall from overcast skies between November and March.... What we're waiting for now is male rain. Big, booming, wait-till-your-father-gets-home cloudbursts that bully up from Mexico and threaten to rip the sky." ~Barbara Kingsolver

  16. I live in a medium sized town but I never knew the exact population. The whole of the country has about 38 million people.
    Tokyo, the capital of Japan has the same number of population...

    1. Tokyo is packed! I can only imagine how busy it is there.

  17. The closest town to us, Hanover, has a pop. of 7,490. Our little village is so small I couldn't even find a population listed anywhere. We are in what has been described as south-central Ontario. We used to have a gas station, but it has closed. We used to have a corner store, but it too has closed. We have a mechanics, plumbing/ heating place, a small restaurant, tiny bank, and a post office. Ta-da!!! -Jenn
