Happy Birthday to a fellow Iowan (not an Iowan fellow)...

For those who are geographically challenged, as most of us are at some point, here is some information about this great state that Mary lives in:

Mary lives in Davenport, Iowa. On the map, this is over on the east (right) side of the state. Despite the placement of the "dot," Davenport is located right on the Mighty Mississippi river.

If you head straight west (left - gotta keep it easy for some of you) is a "star" and the state capital of Des Moines (it is NOT pronounced Des Moine-es, but more like this: Da Moine, like Da Bulls and Da Bears). Just to the south of that is where Sir Quack lives. He's pretty cool too "cuz he's gots dem dare Axiom speakers" too. No, that isn't how he speaks, nor is it how anyone speaks who is natively from Iowa.

Now, if you look between Davenport and Des Moines, and head north (heading towards the upper part of the image), you will find Cedar Rapids. That is right next to where I live in Marion.

Here are some fun facts about the state of Iowa...

1. Ripley's Believe It or Not has dubbed Burlington's Snake Alley the most crooked street in the world.
2. Strawberry Point is the home of the world's largest strawberry.

13. At 16 miles, East Okoboji is the longest natural lake in the state.
14. Kalona is the largest Amish community west of the Mississippi River.

18. Iowa's oldest continually running theater is in Story City.
19. The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art houses the largest collection of Grant Wood artwork.
20. Fenlon Place Elevator in Dubuque is the world's steepest and shortest railway.
21. Wright County has the highest percentage of grade-A topsoil in the nation.
22. Quaker Oats, in Cedar Rapids, is the largest cereal company in the world.
23. The Saint Francis Xavier Basilica in Dyersville is the only basilica in the United States situated outside a major metropolitan area.
24. Clarion is the only county seat in the exact center of the county.

26. Cornell College is the only school in the nation to have its entire campus listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
27. The Sergeant Floyd Monument in Sioux City honors the only man to die during the Lewis and Clark expedition.
28. Maynard Reece is the only artist to win the Federal Duck Stamp competition five times.
29. A bronze life-sized sculpture of a Norwegian immigrant family (circa 1860) is located on a six acre restored prairie site located at the east entry to Lake Mills on Highway 105.
30. Iowa's only operating antique carousel is located in the city of Story City.

50. Sheldon High School Summer Theatre, the only high school repertory in Iowa and one of just a few in the nation presents a different play for each week in June and July.

Put at the top of the list, in position '.5' the piece of information that it is Mary's birthday today, and the list just quadruples in awesomeness!

Happy Birthday Mary!
I made you a cake... It isn't the prettiest, but here is a picture...

Happy Birthday Mary!!

And it's always a good idea to get to the cake before the chimp does. So, the moral of the story is--don't get banana flavored cake.

Mary, Happy Birthday!! Although Nick covered THAT in extreme depth as well.

After reading his birthday wish ( a two day event and the reason my BD wishes are late), I concluded a switch to decaf would be helpful for him. It may also be that he just wanted to keep you mesmerized (or asleep) so he had time to show up and get some of that fabulous cake. laugh

In any event, all the best for your special day.

Thank you all SO much for the warm birthday wishes!!! smile Sorry, I didn't get a chance to reply earlier, but I was out of the country on vacation. I just got back Thursday, and since then, I haven't had a full day at home yet. Long story!

Nick, I LOVED your detailed facts about Iowa! I'll be you didn't know I'm originally from Idaho City, Ohio though, did you? Someday, I'd like to move to Winchesterfieldville. wink grin
