    Howdy neighbors! I live in Monroe which is south of downriver (there is a whole county below Wayne County!) I think the whole state of Michigan should apply for bankrupty and have the federal government bail it out.
    Maybe we should have a dismeet?

    I'm all for a DIS meet. MY aunt, who is also a DISer, and I tried to plan a DIS meet last year and no one showed up. :mad: Lot's of people SAID they would be there but they weren't.:sad2:

    I'm all up for trying it again though. Maybe that first meet was just a fluke thing. :confused3

    I grew up in Redford too:)



    I've planned a few Michigan DIS meets in the past (haven't had one in a few years) that had pretty good turn outs.....we've met at 12 Oaks Mall in Novi & at Meridian Mall in East Lansing.


    & Feiger running for mayor would be a disaster!:sad2:

    Hey there Lars!!! Those DISmeets at 12 Oaks were a lot of fun! I say we start thinking about doing another one in November. It seems the food court at 12 Oaks seems to be centrally located and they were well attended!

    Bad Bad move on her part :confused: . She is toast! She should've taken the plea deal. KK already admitted they lied on the stand. I think she is making it worse on herself. I bet she is trying to get the sympathy votes.

    sad that he ended up as he did....the youth of detroit could use a role model....

    ahhh...traverse city.....beautiful place!!!!

    I don't know anything about ken Cockrel - you can read about him in wikipedia...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Cockrel,_Jr.
    his father (a very famous lawyer when i was young and a member of the detroit city council) was one of the most amazing speakers i've ever heard....ever ever......incredible verbal skills...


    i went off to university in 1973.....came back to live in detroit from 1985 to 90....haven't lived there since, but i visit at least once a year for a few weeks, sometimes more (helping out my mom and sister during their cancer treatments)...

    oh - a pyramid scheme....those always seem really shifty to me...



    sure i remember Lou Gordon...
    i was born in 1955 and lived in the area until 73 (when i went off to university)...so i remember lou gordon, soupy sales, captain what's his name....what was his name????
    poop deck paul, twin pines dairy, the JL hudson building downtown (now THAT was a real store), himelhochs, jacobsens, food fair,
    what was the name of that old guy on tv who showed movies.........bill kennedy?
    i could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...

    as for sports teams....go pistons.....if i'm in detroit when there's a game at the palace, i'm THERE.....

    two brilliant ideas....government bailout of michigan....and a dismeet..

    if you have a dismeet when i'm visiting my family, you can most definitely count me in!!!!

    Does anyone know when that is?

    Count me in (for the Dis meet - not the game!). :rotfl2:

    Great thread WardFamily1. :goodvibes

    Dh and I both grew up in Detroit. He was an east sider and I lived in Southwest Detroit (I could see the Ambassador Bridge from my upstairs bedroom window). We met at Wayne State. :love:

    My family moved to Canton when I was 16 (it was all dirt roads and cornfields back then!). Still a Canton girl and probably always will be unless I can convince the powers that be at Disney to let me move in to the Magic Kingdom. :banana:

    Dh is a Ford man! He loved that company so much. I always said he would work there for nothing if we could afford it. Now he's retired and we're worried about their future (and ours!). If our government can bale out Wall Street they sure as heck need to help our automotive industry.

    It's a beautiful day today. We're heading over to the Big Bear Lodge in Brownstown to celebrate our bf's 35th wedding anniversary. :hug:

    U of M plays MSU on Octber 25th. I have son who is a freshman at U of M, so you know which team we'll be rooting for this year!

    I have lived in the Detroit suburbs all my life. My step-dad is a retired GM employee, my dad works for a smaller company that deals primarily with GM, and DH is a project manager in company that does business with the automotive industry. We obviously hope that the auto industry can get through this!

    Hey Ricky's Girl, :wave2: I'm glad you found the thread! ;)



    Just an FYI to whomever is going to plan the DIS meet, 12 Oaks no longer has a Disney Store. :guilty: The only stores I know of are at Great Lakes Crossing and Lakeside Mall.

    I'm pretty sure that Somerset North does too, unless that has recently changed.
