    You'Re Wrong.

    I've grown up here, and it sucks. As a teenager, the kids are pathetically sheltered. They think the world revolves around them, because most of them have never seen anything but the Midwest. Life is bubble-wrapped, and pop culture gets here eight months late. I guess people are...

    Iowa City

    So I lived there for a short time, I worked at a Major Telecommunications company when they had their call center there.  I have to say I kinda liked it.  I miss going to Perkins with friends after work and to some of the bars around.  And I liked the people a lot...

    Fields Of Dreams ...

    I was truly shocked when I saw this group.  People who appreciate Iowa!  Amazing! As a life long resident, I have to admit, I often haven't appreciated it enough.  The people are kind, always ready and willing to lend a hand.  I've had several...

    Iowa

    Since I joined this group, I've changed my mind. Iowa is boring, and so is the Midwest. I'm planning on moving out west to Oregon in a couple of years.

    A Woman On The Porch, Just Rocking

    For as long as I can remember I have wanted to visit Iowa. I have no idea why but I have always had this fantasy that I am driving down a two lane road, I look to the right, and there is a woman sitting on her porch rocking. She lives on a corn farm. She is a picture of serenity...

    I Really Can't Say Anything Bad About Iowa.

    It's quiet here. I live in a small town near Sioux City. Sometimes it can be a little bit hard to get to places you desire to go to. Walmart, a shopping mall.. just about anyplace to go out for an even dinner or movie. That is okay though. I can deal with driving a short way. I...
