Re Hotel made out of a silo --- There is! Quaker Square Inn http://www.quakersquareakron.com/
is there, or used to be. I have never stayed there but been to the Quaker Square Mall.
I am originally from a little suburb southeast of Akron. I worked for the City of Canton as an Admin Sec'y for almost 10 years, then moved to Indiana with my then fiance when he graduated from University of Akron with an Electrical Engineering degree for his job. Been here in southern Indiana, for 18 years now. I worked full time at Indiana University in the Registrar's office for 11 years, then took some time off to take care of my ill mother in OH. I returned back to working only part time, but I could work 39.99 hours a week if I wanted that many hours.
I am an avid Nascar fan, but love NHRA, USAC -- about anything with wheels and an engine! My hobbies used to be making my own cards, rubber stamping, even some crocheting, reading and I used to love to cook when I had more time pre building our house!
No children, no pets any longer in the house. We used to have a Bichon for 13 years but we had her put to sleep when she got really really ill. We have a black/white cat that adopted us - he's an outside cat cause of the shedding and hubby's allergies.
As most of you all know, my hubby was diagnosed with ALS, initiallly in March and final diagnosis in June. We are just taking one day at a time and living life and being thankful for each day that we have together since we don't know how long that may be.
What a great thread this is! It has been so much fun "getting to know" everyone. What a great opportunity for all of those folks who just drop by to read this board to join up and post their introduction here!!!! (Hint, hint)
