30 DBC- Day 24

*Where you live*

Not to be too in-depth, I live in a fairly large city in Michigan. I've lived here my entire life, and I love it. There are nothing like Michigan falls and days at Lake Michigan-only a 45 minute drive!

Some fun Michigan facts:

*We have singing sand on one of our local beaches. The sand is so fine, it makes a squeaking noise when you walk on it

*You are never more than six miles from one of Michigan's 11,000 inland lakes or 36,000 miles of streams.

*Kellogg Company was founded in Battle Creek, Mi.

*Madonna, Tim Allen, President Gerald Ford, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Robin Williams, Tom Selleck and Stevie Wonder are all from Michigan.

*The first "soda" pop was created by accident in Detroit-Vernor's Ginger Ale in 1866.

*The bridge spanning five miles between the Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula, The Mackinac Bridge (pronounced "Mack-i-naw") is one of the world's largest suspended bridges.

*The Great Lakes account for one fifth of the World's surface fresh water.

*Michigan touches four of the five great lakes (HOMES-Huron, Ontario, Lake Michigan, Erie and Superior) which are the largest group of fresh water lakes in the world.


Plus, Michigan is the only place you can find this happy face:
