kygman, I am over here in Murray and I always forget about the Ham Festival. What are all the activities besides the gigantic biscuit, which has now made me hungry? Is it really family oriented or filled with a bunch of trouble makers like some of the other local festivals that will remain nameless.

All I have ever seen was family oriented. main Street is closed from the traffic light by the park all the way up to the other side of the Bank of Cadiz. We heard one lady joke about having to push a stroller through all the crowd. Said next time she's strapping a cattle prod on the front to clear a path! lol Seriously though, we haven't ever come up on Friday or Saturday nights to hear the bands. Don't know how it is then but haven't heard anything bad before. With the construction of the new (but not needed) courthouse they don't have those 2 side streets to put booths on.
Come on over! Your snack on the big biscuit is free!

Lexington. An hour south of Cincinnati. An hour west of Louisville. Very centrally located. Big enough but not too big! Weather is OK, not great! Sort of a mix between a humid continental/humid subtropical climate; but coming from the north, I'm sure you won't mind. Beautiful scenery. Pretty decent culture. North side of town seems to be the worst as far as crime.

I lived in a small town in TN and found they were still fighting the Civil War there. If your great granddaddy didn't fight for the right side in the recent unpleasantries you were a yankee.

My children who were born in TN were called yankees--in Nashville! where practically no one who's there now was actually born there.

Frankly, I'm not too fond of the south, though it's got more on the ball than the north at this point.

I find KY to my liking because it's got the best of the south and the north--a slower pace and extreme friendliness with a "whatever" attitude that doesn't condemn anyone for being who they are.

I'm in Louisville with all the amenities of a bigger northern city with the feel of a small town. I love it here.
