I was born in Beth Israel Hospital Newark, New Jersey
Marinette General Hospital in Marinette, Wisconsin.
Turner Memorial Hospital
I am certain that this thread wasn’t intended for this purpose, and I didn’t even consider it when I first came across it, but you might want to be careful about giving out this kind of information because this is the sort of thing that can be used for identity theft. They'd need more than that, of course. For myself, I am not concerned because if anyone stole my identity, they’d be begging me to take it back, but you might want to consider this. If you think of it, questions like your place of birth, your first pet, your favorite teacher, and so on, are questions that are often used to confirm your identity online.
@Ken Anderson , that's exactly what I was thinking. That's pretty much all they would need to know to cause havoc with your identity.
It saddens me to think about the hospital I was born in because it has been demolished. The only thing standing is the four level parking garage.
Boston City Hospital
I totally 100% agree with you, Ken. Apparently he doesn't realize, and other don't as well, that giving out certain info online can become trouble for them. It's like getting an e-mail that is asking a person to log into one of their credit card account for some reason. The e-mail looks legit, but definitely may not be. I always delete and never do it!
Anyway, because of Lon's living situation, he's seems to be pretty bored.
I can't remember. I was tied up. But the location was definitely more decent than the birth of my elder brother who was born in a dusty bunker during an air raid. I remember, though, that I had to give way to my twin brother. That's what bugged my even then.
