    Unless otherwise noted, these are all in the grand and glorious state of Michigan. (Much as I like that phrase, we might not get to use it at the Dem convention this year due to the primary spitball fight.)

    Royal Oak (Beaumont Hospital)
    Farmington Hills
    Beverly Hills (yes we haz one too!)
    Ann Arbor
    East Lansing
    Haslett
    Rock Island, IL
    Lansing
    Missoula, MT
    Baltimore MD
    Ypsilanti
    Farmington
    Dearborn
    Westland
    Grand Rapids

    There's "Detroit" meaning the metro area, and "Detroit" meaning the city. While I've worked for the latter, I never lived there.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Hmm. I need to make this list longer. Once you've broken free of the shackles of your home state, moving becomes a lot easier. I wish I had done it earlier in life.

    Yes.

    8 of the places that I mentioned are places that I moved (Frontenac County....to Toronto, ON). I didn't include all the times that I've moved within the county.
