Höchstadt is a town in the Erlangen-Höchstadt district, in Bavaria, Germany.

Food

Carp is a very important food, but only in the months with an "r" (September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April). There are various carp dishes: e.g., "blue carp", "baked carp" and "pepper carp". Carp eaten there is termed Aischgründer Karpfen".

Culture

There is an events centre (converted from a former shoe factory) that includes a music school and a library; there is an evening event most days.

Beaverton, Oregon, USA.
Just west of Portland, it's the 6th largest city in the state.  I live just past Hwy 217, about a couple miles from the Portland/Beaverton border.  Fairly big Hispanic population (though not nearly as much as west of me in Hillsboro).  Plenty to do in town (malls, theaters, restaurants of all kinds).  Cops here are a**holes and prowl my street looking for someone to irritate.  Beaverton is probably most famous for its Nike World Headquarters.

Nike HQ:

Cedar Hills Crossing Mall (we still often call it Beaverton Mall):

Beaverton Town Square (tons of restaurants, shops and a giant department store):

Beaverton Transit Center (trains and buses to Portland, Hillsboro, Tigard, Wilsonville, etc.):

And it's also known for various hi-tech technology companies (Linux, Maxim, Tektronix; part of the "Silicon Forest").

I grew up in Paramus, New Jersey -- home of the hair metal band Trixter and lots 'n' lots of shopping malls.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramus

Since 1999 I've lived in West Milford, New Jersey, about 40 minutes north of my former home town. It's right on the border with Upstate New York and is much more rural. Supposedly Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees lived here for a brief period in his youth, and other famous residents include Tom "Dukes of Hazzard" Wopat and Jeremy Glick, who died on United Flight 93 on 9/11.

I grew up and currently live in a remote small fishing village in Northeastern Newfoundland named Herring Neck. I myself made a living in the fishery for the last 12 years but I'm now out of a job and there doesn't seem to be many to be found so I'm likely soon going to have to go back to school and eventually move away. Not many pictures online but I did find these...

Oh there's still a fishing industry but it's not what it used to be. One cannot make as good a living at it nowadays as in the past. When my uncle passed away, I lost my position as a crew member on a fishing vessel and there don't seem to be any others available so I'm looking into returning to school because despite a university degree (granted that was 16 years ago), I cannot even seem to get a job interview in these parts...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
