Only in America......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America....do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Only in America......do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in America......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America......do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well. 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures.'

Only in America......do they have drive-up ATM machines with braille lettering.

God Bless America!

My FIRST priority when looking for a house or condo is the attached garage to PARK IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People will say, "but I have all this stuff", I say, "ya ever heard of this thing called a SHED" :haha: Guess parking inside isn't as important to others as it is to me, lol

Well...I can certainly understand that..but I guess I better watch out for you before you Head Slap me! I bought my house..and at the time both of my vehicles fit in the garage.....

Since we bought the house though, I bought a truck that is too big to fit in the garage! LMAO I guess I should have measured the truck and garage before I bought it. LOL

And the names they give streets. When I moved to Florida my mom said we bought a house on Magnolia Trace. I asked her is that a street, avenue, parkway, road, what the heck is a trace??? In old times a trace was sort of an unpaved wide path you could travel on. This was a nice neighborhood of lower end Fancy homes on two acre lots, with bunches of homeowners regulations. So, why call the nice roads there a "trace". Even today, looking back, I still think the roads were named wierd by calling them Trace.

In my area of Ohio, we have Zanes Trace that is from the late 1700's and this is a little description of it (but it is nothing like the Florida builder's idea of a Trace!

Quote :
Zane and his brothers followed Native American footpaths to cut the first road from the wilderness in the Northwest Territory in the late 1700s. Colonel Zane, who founded Wheeling, West Virginia, and helped to settle Lancaster, Ohio, appealed to Congress for permission to build a road and he received that permission in 1796 after he had already begun the project. Zane requested and received from the American government land grants where the Trace crossed the Muskingum, Hocking and Scioto Rivers to pay for his surveying costs. The government agreed to his request, believing that a major road opened in 1797 would bring more settlers to Ohio and help increase trade.

Zane's Trace, intermingled with what is now the National Road and Route 40, was the shortest distance between Wheeling and Limestown, Kentucky (present-day Maysville) on the Ohio River. In the early stages, Zane's Trace was wide enough for only a horse and rider but not a wagon. Many of the pioneers used the Rivers for transportation, so Zane built ferries at each of the river crossings. After having built a ferry at the mouth of the Licking River, a small town developed, eventually named Zanesville, which is the county seat and largest city in Muskingum County.

My hometown is half right on streets.

I live on Oak street between 8th and 9th street.

Sure, there's oak trees everywhere in my town (it translates to The Way of the Oaks for God's sake) but that doesn't really tell you where Oak St. is.

PostSubject: 6 Truths of Life   Fri Mar 28, 2008 3:23 am

6 Truths of Life

1. You cannot touch all your teeth with your tongue.
2. All idiots, after reading the first truth, will try it.

3. The first truth is a lie.

4. You're smiling now because you're an idiot.

5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.

6. There's still a stupid smile on your face.

Sorry about this I was an idiot too, and needed company.

Well we usally have at least 5 vehicles at my house. My brothers truck, my dad's truck, my mom's jeep, my sister's car, and my sister's boyfriend's car! So they will not all fit in a garage.

So whats in our garage? A motorcycle, a fourwheeler, a bunch of bikes, and a bunch of tools and stuff.

So that vehicle in garage thing doesn't work Big Smile
