The Cornhusker State




So - as most of you know - just after getting married, James and I are moving to Lincoln, Nebraska. Change-overload!! It will be an adjustment but i think a really good move. For those who have never been to Lincoln, now you have a reason to go. James keeps saying - " I want us to have a really cool apt/house where people want to come visit/stay with us." So you are always welcome! Lincoln really is a great town - not too big, not too small. Lots of pride - but in a good way. They are all about Husker Sports. The downtown is so fun. And there are bike trails everywhere all over the city. And a few other interesting facts about Nebraska....



Nebraska has more miles of river than any other state.


The 911 system of emergency communications, now used nationwide, was developed and first used in Lincoln, Nebraska.


The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been to a record 27 consecutive bowl games and 27 consecutive winning seasons (James' dad was on the team for at least 2 of those winning seasons!)


In Blue Hill, Nebraska, no female wearing a 'hat that would scare a timid person' can be seen eating onions in public.


The largest porch swing in the world is located in Hebron, Nebraska and it can sit 25 adults.


In 1950, Omaha became the home of the College World Series.


So there you have it....come visit for the College world series, or to bike along the many river trails, or sit with 24 other adults on the largest porch swing! Whats not to love!?
