    Well I'll be danged. Michigan made the list! We're #7. Nice! :) Helps off-set we're like one of the very top 3 for highest insurance rip off rates. =/ No kidding. There was a poll on that sometime last year. California's rates are even cheaper than ours. Go figure.

    From the early 1900's to around 1940, my area of the US was the number one egg producing region. Small farmers got together in co-ops, invented large scale egg washers, and organized shipping. If you want a real insight to the era and a good laugh, read "The Egg and I" or rent it as a movie.
