Greetings from the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Kittyhawk to be more precise.  Home of the first powered flight by Wilber & Orville Wright.  I can see the monument and the Atlantic Ocean from my room!

"I was a lifelong Democrat only because the choices were limited. The Democrats are the party of slavery and were the party that started every war in the 20th century, except the other Bush debacle. The Federal Reserve, permanent federal income taxes, not one but two World Wars, Japanese concentration camps, and not one but two atom bombs dropped on the innocent citizens of Japan---all brought to us via the Democrats." ---Cindy Sheehan, nailing her cohorts

Some driving tips you should know ..................
 
Turn signals...purely optional.

The actual speed limit is 20mph faster than the posted limit.

Parking lots; Nature's perfect shortcut.

At STOP signs, you must slow down to 20mph and be prepared to stop if you see a police car.

People crossing the street are assumed to be walking fast enough to be out of your lane by the time you get there.

If you are waiting at a red light, and there is nobody there to see you go through it, did you break the law?

Well, that's about it from my perspective, be it Kill Devil Hill or Absurdistan (Where 3-6% of the students actually graduate from their dumbed down high school)
