Tom Kelly says:

I grew up in Clarksgreen Pa a suburb of the city of Scranton. If you have ever watched the American version of the TV show “The Office” that’s the place where I grew up. Clarksgreen is very much a quiet Norman Rockwell like place especially growing up in the late 1970’s through the 1990’s.


Clarksgreen is fine place and I enjoyed growing up there. My backyard had a very large section of woods that all my brothers and friends would play in. We would go on adventures for hours, build forts, go sledding in the wintertime, and play all sorts of games. So I had a very adventures childhood.


I’m 41 years old ( so basically I’m one of the last generation of kids who grew up without the internet).

Norah Head Lighthouse – Emily McGuire

On the Central Coast of New South Wales is a town called Norah Head. They have one of the prettiest lighthouses I have seen (I have seen a few in my time too). I went down there one day and took some photos and know I will have to go back and take a picnic next time.
