    as they say; there's no place like home!!

    on the other hand, having a bunch of college (or grads) don't always equate to actually presenting as "educated" ... bunch of speed freaks around here; whether it's meth, ice or caffiene!!

    totally strange to see your hometown listed as number one! weird.
