I am referring to some members of my extended family. Otherwise, I agree.

I find both the Northeast and the Southeast to be far more interesting naturally than the majority of the midwest. So I guess they both share natural beauty, which I find lacking in most of the Midwest (portions of Michigan and Wisconsin look nice though).

The midwest has the type of beauty you have to go looking for. Actually, Minnesota is a lot like WI and very pretty. Hilly, wooded in the southern part of the state, lots of lakes, good boating. Awful winter climate unless you are a polar bear. But take Illinois (please, JK)! I lived there for seven yrs. Central Ill. is kinda neat with the waving corn in the summer. It's cool to see the horizon. I have driven across Nebraska dozens of times (DH is from there). It's neat to see the farms and baby animals. The migrating cranes in the springtime are a sight to behold!

Since when has the Northeast had so many Waffle Houses in it? As far as I know , they do not exist north of Pennsylvania and I'd be shocked if Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware sported Waffle Houses in the same numbers as the South.

Someone posted a map of Waffle House locations. I think it's on the Waffle House thread. As I said, I saw one in Colorado Springs the other day. I don't remember if there are any in Ill., Ind., Iowa, etc, the states of the midwest. Certainly not in large numbers in the midwestern states I have spent a lot of time in, which are the above plus Minnesota and Wisconsin.

For some reason, I can't get the picture to copy. Anyway, there are NO waffle houses in the midwestern states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North/South Dakota or Nebraska.
