Yes, it's where I'm from.
Iowa~ the land of pig poo and corn fields.
Not to be confused with Idaho (you'd a what? ((That just makes me laugh)), which grows a ton of potatoes.
Some people also confuse Iowa with Ohio.
I do not have a clue why.
Maybe it's the whole, I'm a vowel, they're a vowel.
It's all good.
But, no one seems to get us confused with Indiana or Utah.
I may need to rethink the vowel thing.
My state was one of the first to introduce showing ID and signing in order to buy the good cough syrup.
We also brought you Tom Vilsack- head of the USDA.
We have RAGBAI- Des Moines Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa. If you want to ride 50-100 miles a day over most likely hilly terrain and some easy flat areas, this might be a trip for you. Did I mention it is in July, in the nice humid, sweltering heat that this great state is know for?
We were the 4th state to allow gay marriage. Not voted in, but the supreme court justices said outlawing it was discrimination. Big hoopla at first. Some people thought there would be a major surge of gay people getting married. Now, nobody really cares.
Cannibis oil is legal, but it cannot be manufactured here and you are not allowed to legally bring it from Colorado to Iowa because Nebraska will arrest your sorry ass.
Smoking is not allowing in any public buildings. Except for casinos. Slot machines are not the same rush if you can't smoke.
Iowa has a nice long gardening season, if you are so inclined.
The cost of living isn't too bad. OK, it's not great but more affordable than many other states.
Can't forget first caucus in the nation status.
Politicians care. News stations care.
I don't think anybody else cares.
Except for when it's over all and the ads go away for awhile.
I hope you have enjoyed your little lesson on Iowa.
