The family lived in Battle Creek but I was too young to remember. I love the name Battle Creek, what a great name for a town. The place smells like cooked cereal most of the time though because of Kellogg's plants!
Michigan as all states have some great sports rivalries, those two troublemakers above, Michigan vs. State is a very intense one, the hate between those two is intense and it is a rivalry that takes a backseat to no other.Isn't that one thing about the U.S. which makes life interesting? Wolverines versus the Spartans, Western Michigan vs. Eastern Michigan, Michigan vs. Ohio State, etc.
I'm very glad that I did not grow up in Michigan, nothing against people from that great state but I can't understand how people can live in a climate that severe! Too cold for me, I'm a tropical person and have the need for lots of sun, hello Hawai'i. My mom says Michiganers are some of the nicest people around and didn't mind if we had continued living there, my dad was very much like me, can't stand the extreme cold and all the snow...thank goodness, praise God!
