You are right, Razar. Elvis was born in Tupelo (which is only 90 miles from Memphis) but moved to Memphis at an early age and called Memphis home. And this is where he was when he became famous.

I went to, He was a real "down to earth" guy! LOL

I worked in the motion picture industry for some time, I've worked with many famous people. I saw Denise Richards almost nude, does that count for anything?

I'll name drop: Keanu Reeves, Reese Witherspoon, Dan Akroyd, Jack Lemmon, Walter Mathau, Sophia Loren, Cameron Diaz, geez, too many. None of them know me or gave me any of their money LOLOLOL

No fair, they should've shared!

John Couger Mellencamp used to live in the same city I lived in. His family owned our skating rink in town where we all hung out. He used to come in all the time. My sister used to skate with him. Plus we used to go listen to him when he was first starting out.

In my hometown, President Warren G Harding was born there, and is buried there. Rod Serling, from the "Twighlight Zone" fame, was from there and TZ actually started out on our local radio station. Toby Harrah, who used to play for the Cleveland Indians, Jim Thorpe (Browns fame) , and Major league baseball umpire Larry Barnett (still out there calling balls and strikes, and is the senior umpire in the AL) are all from there. And I have heard that Huey Lewis lived there until he was around 7 or 8 yrs old, but I can't claim that to be 100% true as I've never found any concrete evidence on it. Oh, and we are also the popcorn capital of the world too. Huge popcorn festival there every year the weekend after Labor Day.

Popcorn capital huh? Kewl!
Fort Payne Alabama is the sock capital! Lot's of interesting facts about many places.

I went to high school with actress, Isabella Hoffman who is/was also married to actor Daniel Baldwin. She has been in many different movies & shows & one you might remember is Homicide which I believe Daniel Baldwin was also in that show. She hasn't made it back to any of our high school class reunions but at our 30th this last July she did send in info about herself so we could put it in our booklet.
