Being from Louisville means to ME...

Louisville Skyline Viewed from Waterfront Park


Yesterday I posted a list entitled “Being from Louisville means...” Today I am refining that list to the items that I have experienced.

Being from Louisville means to ME:

The in-state sports rivalry is paid more attention to than the national championship.

You live in an area that occasionally gets considerable snowfalls, floods, and tornadoes... but has no capacity to deal with any of the above.

You pronounce the name of your city different than anyone else you've heard.

You think the rest of the people in Kentucky sound like hicks.When you think "Kentucky" you don't automatically think horse racing or fried chicken.

You ask your doctor for an allergy cure and he tells you to "move."

You've shoveled 10+ inches of snow and worn shorts in the same week.

You've lived here for years, yet somehow you get hopelessly lost each time you attempt a shortcut through Cherokee Park.

You hold up traffic to let a motorist you don't know into your lane.

You think all the REAL hicks live in New Albany.

When introduced to another life-long Louisvillian, you spend the first part of the conversation finding out how you are connected. It's never as many as six degrees of separation—usually three will do it.

You think the rest of the world knows what a Hot Brown is.

Much smaller list, ain’t it?

  4. Good day, sun shines!
    There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
    Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
    It gets down to choose a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

    You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
