Kherson, Khersonska Oblast??????

Kherson, Khersonska Oblast??????

I have a Live Traffic Feed installed on my blog so that I can find out from where visitors to my blog are living. Noticed this morning when I got on my blog that someone from Kherson, Khersonska Oblast spent a lot of time on my blog visiting various postings a short while ago. Well, I immediately remarked to my hubby that I don't have a clue where in the world Kherson, Khersonska Oblast is. (Do you?)
I had to immediately do a google search to learn that Kherson is a southern city in the province of Khersonska Oblast which is a province of the the country of Ukraine which at one time was a part of the old Soviet Union of Russia. I discovered that the people living there are Ukrainians and Russians. Naturally I then wondered to myself if this blog visitor realized that the blogger he was visiting was born in Russia, Ohio which is an incorporated village in the state of Ohio which is a part of the United States. Blogging can be so enlightening!


I wish some of the folks who visit my blog each week would identify themselves by sending me an email: jshipley25@verizon.net For example, who are the people behind these places:

Wooster, Ohio
Warren, Ohio
Marysville, Ohio
St. Henry, Ohio
Minster, Ohio
Fort Loromie, Ohio
Versailles, Ohio
New Benson, North Carolina

I love learning where people are from, and some names like this one I enjoy looking up. Certainly improves my geography. Have a great weekend Joann.
