    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    That van location has to be higher. I mean, you had waterfront property.

    2. Ames, IA
    3. Tyler, TX

    New Orleans gets to rank in there somewhere as that's where I'm moving to in July so we'll see how it goes. Do not think I'm going to like the weather at all.

    Re: Rank the Places You've Lived

    1) Ames, IA (liked it enough to stay after my 7 years of undergrad studies )
    2) Crystal Lake, IL (actually a smaller town north of Chicago...lived there for 2 years of HS and it was pretty sweet as a basketball player to have the town watertower be a basketball)
    3) Mediapolis, IA (small town life with larger town (Burlington) nearby...although the smell from Columbus Jct. made it tough to stomach...kidding cyismydog )
    4) Boone, IA (although as a little league aged kid it was kind of cool to live in a little league-crazed town like Boone)
