Our lower penninsula is shaped like a mitten. Our Upper penninsula looks sorta like a rabbit.

21. Specifically, no, but...
...I do know Davison and Schoolcraft. I'm most familiar with deep downtown: Michigan St. and the like.

20. We voted For Gore.
I was in a barbershop today in Midland, Mi. which is a strong rethug area, and right out of the blue this guy started in about hanging some one big over prisoners. Conversation went around the room and no one will be voting for Bush. About 10 people in the room and I only knew one of them. Shocked me almost speachless but not quite. lol I got my licks in. One problem they did not care for Kerry either. However it was a vote against Bush, period. There is hope!

30. Emanuelle Boisvert, Nami Jarvi and the entire Detroit Symphony Orchestra
Add to that the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Scarab Club, the Fox (no, not FAUX) Theater and you've got enough to hold you.

31. The Upper Peninsula is beautiful
and practically deserted. Anyone looking for cheap getaway that isn't crowded should go. I also like camping in the Manistee National Forest.
