I got confused a bit for awhile in several months back. I was looking at a Washington Map and noticed Raymond by South Bend in the Pacific County area a lot when Pacific County and Grays Harbor County was being at a great deal of my focus to where I like to live. Then on a Job Bank Internet Site I saw the word for a location of this Job ... Redmond. So I looked at the Map and saw Raymond and then ... Wait! So where is Redmond? This isn't Redmond, but Raymond. It took me awhile to find it's a bit East of Seattle. In Kings County with Believue South of it.

So then when I saw another description, for which was on another day, showing me Raymond, I looked for the Redmond area and noticed this wasn't Raymond, so where was Raymond? I had forgotten where Raymond was. So that took me awhile to find Raymond again.

So now I like to be aware of the resembulance of these two City's very carefully and hope that I am more aware of the two City's being R'mond in Washington. Raymond from Redmond. Has gotten me confused until I get myself learning to aware of this. And I might like to consider Raymond for a place to live if things look good for me there also.

That's the first I've ever heard of anybody confusing Redmond with Raymond to tell you the truth.

Redmond, of course, is well known because it's where the corporate headquarters of Microsoft is located. Consequently, it is know worldwide.

Raymond on the other hand, is a rather depressed little town in Pacific County with a population of barely 3,000.


Thanks.

Well? I guess there is a First Time for something. I never knew Microsoft Headquarter's was in Redmond. That's the first I ever head that before.

In Redmond you will find Microsoft Corporation.
In Raymond you will be lucky to find a computer.

Another Confusion I have had with is ... Vancouver. Since there is two Vancouver (s). Washington and Canada. Of course it takes mentioning Washington and Canada to know which Vancouver is really being refered to.

It is a bit of the same kind of Confusion. And how the both reside in the South West of Washington and Canada as well. It's like there is a bit of trying to cause some confusion. It seems to me. Trying to see if we can be alert enough?
