    I'm curious as to what state you live in, if you live in the US.

    LOUISIANA STATE SONG

    by former Gov. Jimmy Davis
    (who left a $50,000,000 state surplus when he resigned!)

    "You are my sunshine,
    My only sunshine.
    You make me happy
    when skies are gray.
    You'll never know dear
    how much I love you.
    Please don't take my sunshine away!"

    Peace-

    YSIC
    Scarlett O. - who wishes you could hear her singing to the top of her lungs! ;)

    In 1959, the Ohio legislature adopted the state's motto, "With God all things are possible."

    The atheists are still mad & bitter about it.

    But the state motto remains. [​IMG]

    How about the State of Ambiguety, Or the State of Depression, The State of Hyper-sensitivity, The State of Aggitation, The State of Denial, The State of Lonliness, The State of Forgiveness, The State of Humbleness, and the best one....The State of Grace?

    Hey, we've been cooking eggs on Washington's
    no-longer-green grass lately. Whew! It is so hot
    here that I can't see across the street for the steam
    risin'!

    It is so hot here that you don't have to light the
    coals--just throw the steaks on the grill and let
    them sit there for a few minutes. Gotta watch
    'em, though, or there won't be any rare ones.

    It's so hot here that all the pig farmers just have
    bacon lying all around in their sties.

    It is so hot here that the mosquitoes can't bite--
    they're just lying around fanning themselves.

    Aside from Lyndon Johnson and George Bush Junior and Senior, what presidents came from Texas?

    Virginia has eight:

    Of course, none of these fellows were the president of the Republic of Texas...

    I was just about to post something very similar [​IMG]

    BTW, this would be really interesting if more than 3,000 members voted. Or at least 1,000.

    I would ask every BB member to vote in this poll.

    It would help us better understand where the majority of BB members live.

    So far 51 members voted.

    I live in Canada now, but I was raised in Delaware. Wasn't born there, nope; Mama and Dad lived in Delaware just a few miles from Philly when I was born, but I had to be born in a 'burb of Philly 'cause that's where the doctor was. But, deep down in my heart, I'm a Delawarean. So, do I get to vote? Do I, do I?

    Oh, never mind, I've been up here so long now, no one ever asks me anymore if I'm 'Merkun.

    :confused: I think I'll go have a good cry now.
