    We really do. That show is making fun of Portland, Oregon, but there are other places like that. One near me is Asheville, NC

    Is Asheville in western NC, near the mountains?
    I think that's the nearest decent-sized town to where my brother lives...haven't been there since '06

    I've told her mom about the prank, and she thinks it's hilarious, but she put her foot down when I offered to include baby pictures :gig

    It is, and I love visiting there. That town goes against everything I was raised to believe in. It's awesome :thumbsup

    Don't know squat about Asheville proper, or how you were raised, but the surrounding area is like no place I've ever been. The good 'ol boy network is definitely alive & well.

    That's what's so cool about Asheville. 20 minutes from downtown is the buckle of the Bible belt, but downtown is like entering a different world. There are drum circles on Friday nights, a nun with a beard on an 8ft tall bicycle, and one of the best selections of craft beers in the country

    Sounds interesting.
    You familiar with Taylorsville? That's where my brother got his mail b4 his wife got smart & left his sorry butt. Our family owns 4-5 acres there that Dad bought for my brother, who then proceeded to trash it. Just heard an hour ago that it's about to be sold for back taxes, which dear brother was supposed to be paying, but hasn't in two years.

    And you think YOUR family is screwed up?!
