1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

....you didn't seem to think so when you responded, no one forced you to respond, no one forced you to further the discussion by making up comments that weren't made within the thread and yet, you had to post again for some reason.  If you don't want to respond, then don't...it's really that simple.

Growing up I had a friend a few streets over where her front yard was in one town and her backyard was in another!  There are also towns here where some kids go to one school district and others go to another school district because of our the boundaries/town lines are drawn. I drive less than 10 miles to work and I think I pass through over 5 towns on my route.  Really kinda interesting imo.

The kids in my neighborhood that officially lived in Chesapeake went to VB schools - Chesapeake schools had some sort of contract with VB and exchanged tax dollars so that there weren't two sets of busses, etc going into our relatively small neighborhood.  Same thing with trash services, etc.   But the street signs changed color in the middle of the neighborhood. And we all had the same zip code.

My town and the next one share the same zipcode, which is kind of annoying becausemy house is legally within the one town, but when using GPS or a post office search engine my address comes up officially as the other town.  Since that town is incorporated with its own police force and town hall, they get all glory, even though their population is under 4,000 and we're all big and mighty and full of ourselves at 23K  ;)

But it's all good; we don't pay the city taxes :D

My MIL's property is in two states. It's pretty cool to be able to stand in two states at the same time.
