Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

Hello from the mitten state! We've got lakes; five of them and they're all great. Despite our state economy taking a nose-dive in recent years, Michigan still has a lot to offer. There's breathtaking scenery to the north, and some awesome little "big" cities in the south-east. (I'm sure the west side of the state does too, but I don't live there, so I'm biased.)

Our governor is trying to resurrect this fair state by luring in the movie industry...it's kinda cool; DeNiro was filming something around Ypsi in the past couple of months, and Drew Barrymore shot a movie in Saline last year. (maybe the year before that, time has been flying.) 'Tis kinda a big deal for our humble state, hence the shameless name-dropping.

If you ever come to Michigan, you must head to the top of the mitten, go across the bridge, and find the Mystery Spot. It's worth the drive, I promise. (don't be surprised if someone calls you a fudgie while you're up there...it's the northerners' nickname for tourists.)

***I changed the title because I had just heard Michigan being called this the other day...I've lived here for my entire life, how have I not heard it before???

Hoorah for Michigan! This mythical beast also comes from the mitten.

I live in the mitten also. The western part. A movie was filmed in my hometown. It was called Touchback. I can identify almost everything in that movie. If you don't know this already Michigan has the greatest fudge from Mackinaw City especially.
