    I am presently living in Lincoln In the UK... but wasn't born here. Lincoln has a Cathedral and near the Cathedral every year at Christmas they hold a world famous olde worlde market. The castle is famous for housing the famous Magna Carta. Our Crown court is actually in the castle grounds and many many years ago people were hanged from the castle, you can go and see it and see the trap door. Tom Hanks filmed The Da Vinci Code here in Lincoln. There's probably more but as I'm not from here I don't know it.

    I was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. Famous for being totally slammed by Steve Martin. I guess he hated the place... It was also where Buffy and Jody were from in the TV show "Family Affair". They totally mispronounced the name. They pronounced it "Terra Hut". The "Haute" part is pronounced just like if you were discussing "haute cuisine".

    I grew up in Kokomo, Indiana. What is it famous for besides me??? Well, in Highland Park, the largest city park in Kokomo, there is this really big steer named Old Ben. He was born in the early 1900's and is acclaimed to be the biggest steer in the world. His preserved body is kept in a climate controlled building in the park. There is also a covered bridge in the park - the Vermont Covered Bridge. There is also a HUGE hollow sycamore tree stump. Way back when I was in the Girl Scouts, the local paper took a picture of my troop in one of those "how many Girl Scouts can you stuff into the tree stump" articles!

    Kokomo is known as the "City of Firsts". Here are a few of those "firsts":
