Same here we live 30 minutes from Indiana and not much farther to Kentucky in a small town in Richland County called Olney. Yet everyone assumes when they hear Illinois we live in or by Chicago but we are down at the other end of the state almost Southeast Illinois. LOL

Olney Is a small town known for it's White Squirrels.

Reading through this thread, it's funny how many people have the same experience - that is, Illinois = Chicago! My husband and I laugh about that, because we're 10 minutes from Indiana, an hour from Kentucky, and about 6 hours from Chicago! Glad to see there's so many other "southerners" here! emoticon

I am currently living in Murphysboro. Close to Carbondale. I grew up in Xenia which is close to Flora. I have lived in Flora, Shawneetown, Elkville, Zeigler, and Christopher. My parents have lived in a few different area too - Ramsey, Geff, and Donovan. I have a sister who used to live in Dongola and a sister who lives in Collinsville. I also like to travel to Chicago and Fairview Heights and St. Louis quite often. SO I am pretty familiar with all the towns listed here. HI everyone!!

CJTAYLOR - I got so tired of people asking what part of Chicago I am from. SO I now respond that I am from a far south suburb - 6 hours away from downtown called Murphysboro. Most people just give me weird looks and move on. Some people really have to think about it!!

Hi Lindal,
You can succeed!!! Junk foods and sweets are my downfall but for the past 2 weeks I have been totally "junk free". I have only lost 4 1/2 pounds, but I didn't gain! I'm happy with a loss of 2 pounds per week. That's my goal and I have a long way to go. Wishing you the best.
