LOL - You must be from Illinois! I was born and raised near Alton, Illinois, actually in Wood River.
I married a military officer, so by now I've lived in six states and I haven't been back to Illinois in a long time.

Thanks for the info!
I grew up in Elmhurst but have moved around a fair amount including other states.
I have lived in Frankfort(about 40 miles sw of Chicago) for the last 11 years.

If you don't mind my asking what general area are you in.
Thanks again Niall
