    I know this is a world-wide site with most members in the UK, but how many of you MAPers live in the midwest of the USA? Illinois to Colorado, North Dakota to Kansas?

    I was sitting in a seafood shop the other day and on the wall was a huge map of the Pacific. As my boss droned on and on about something that was probably important, my eye wandered over the map. That's when I spotted the little island of Kwajelein!

    now THATS a long commute!

    Illinois here.

    Did you know that Chicago was originally supposed to be part of Wisconsin, but got switched at the last minute for reasons I cannot remember? Look it up, it's true :)

    That it is. We do some work for NASA and the DOE also does some research with the old nuclear testing problems that are still going on out there.

    I don't want to break the advertising rules, but you are all invited to the seminar we are hosting in Omaha in October. PM me for details. Thanks.

    I live in Kentucky - which a lot of people also consider the "midwest".

    That works for me, although I thought it was part of "The South".

    LOL. I think it's all somewhat relative to who you ask.

    I think a lot of Kentuckians consider themselves "southerners" but people in Georgia and Texas don't really think of Kentucky as being in the "south." I grew up in Indiana and Ohio and Indiana definitely consider themselves to be midwest. Since I'm only about 10 minutes from the Indiana border, I still consider where I live to be midwest. But I don't know. I don't think there are any "official" guidelines.

    I think Missouri is in the same boat - consider themselves southerners, but the "real" south does not.

    but anyway,
