Where were you born? Any interesting stories connected with your birth?

I just think it would be fun to hear the answers, particularly given our international community. I was born at Kaiser Hospital, on Sunset Boulevard, in Hollywood, California. A famous street in a famous place. The reason it was Kaiser is that my dad was a Los Angeles schoolteacher, and all the Los Angeles city employees had Kaiser Healthplan medical benefits.

If you like, you can say when you were born, and what things were like back then, although here in the States some think it's rude to ask a woman her age.

    Jun 30 2013: Greg, congratulations for this 'question'. The idea, and, of course, the commenters, have given this section a pause, a nice, fresh and smooth touch of 'team spirit',complicity or something by the way. I don't know if it was your purpose, but it's very pleasant to read this conversations.
