|This is the jail, ahem excuse me, building Michael will be working at in South Shore, KY (about a 30 mile drive from Ashland)|
Population of about 288,000 gangstas ....AKA people
You may have heard of Ashland Oil --> it came from here
AK Steel is also located here, my brother had a job interview there for a co-op
Michael informs me that one of it's public libraries just recently opened up in their mall, which is apparently larger than the Fayette Mall, but has a lot of empty stores.
The Judds are from Ashland -- as in -- Wynonna and Naomi (they have won 5 grammy awards)
Michael tells me the city is actually quite quaint and cute :) -- including the Central Park in the middle of downtown Ashland
So there you go, that's what I (meaning me and Wikipedia) know about Ashland. Hopefully I'll be making a trip down there to explore the city!
Also, today I got to Skype for the very first time. Michael was at the library (his gma's house does not have Wifi, surprise surprise, or a tv) and it was hilarious, I'm sure he looked like a Mr. Silly Pants talkin to himself on the computer, it's a great way to make friends. It was also great cause Michael could say hi to the dogs and they couldn't seem to figure out where he was...awesome!!
Since I was on Skype, I also got to have a little face-time with Mr. JBoh, I love him so and miss him dearly. He says he is going to see me soon, so I hope so!!
