Rich Hill, Missouri

There's probably some law against driving and digital cameraing, right? I think that the real authors around here have a bunch of good things in the pipeline. Until then, here's a new thread.

Can everyone see that photo in full, when they click on the thumbnail?

worked for me, on the other hand, the caching thing has infected the posts once again. I had to try 3 browsers to read this.

It works fine on IE. The site, though, didn't show up for me from 4.20 to 5.30pm CT.

"Rich Hill, Missouri
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For the Chicago Cubs pitcher, see Rich Hill (baseball player).

Rich Hill is a city in Bates County, Missouri, United States. The population was 1,461 at the 2000 census."

the thumbnail is also stretched out in Safari...

Doesn't work on Firefox.

the link to the larger image was working on my browsers but not anymore...

apparently they're moving to a dedicated server as we speak (I guess it was spread out), we'll see if that helps.

My sister actually lived in that town in the 70's or 80's, no shit. She has lived all over Missouri and Kansas, I lose track of the towns, but that might even be the little podunk town we visited her in once in '79. I remember being a bored kid with absolutely nothing to do. My sister and her husband bought a house with a large amount of property and one cow that the seller pushed on them. I remember sitting in the house, baking in the summer heat and waiting for the cow to come back over the hill. That and competing with my brother to kill the most fly's. God that was an awful vacation.

I'm using Firefox and was able to click on this photo when it was first posted. Now I am unable to, not sure why.

I believe there's a sign that actually says Climax 1 mile which is even better

It looks like they've decide to show up and make it a game.

I don't have a photograph of it - well, wait I think I do, but couldn't find it - but there's a roadsign I passed in Iowa when I'd do the Omaha to Madison trip, for the town of "What Cheer"

Actually, I know I have a picture of the What Cheer road sign, I actually pulled over to take a picture.....

I spoke too soon.

SEC...SEC...SEC

Let's see.... What Cheer...

Population, 678

Median resident age, 43.4

Median house value, 23,900 (!?!?!?!?!)

Races in What Cheer:
White Non-Hispanic 98.1%
American Indian 1.2%
"Two or more races" 1.2%

Lanbd area 1.2 square miles (!?!?!?!?!?!?!)

and from wiki....

What Cheer is named for a Native American greeting used in modern Rhode Island in the 1600s. In 1636 Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island who left Salem, Massachusetts to seek religious independence, landed at modern-day Providence in 1636 and was greeted by Narragansett Native Americans with "What Cheer, Netop". Netop was the Narragansett word for friend, and What Cheer was an old English greeting brought to New England by English settlers. Over time, the story of Williams' welcome was absorbed into the legend of Providence.

When the future What Cheer was founded, it was named Petersburg for Peter Britton, the settlement's founder. The What Cheer story and name was brought to Iowa by Joseph Andrews, a major and veteran of the American Civil War in 1864. Andrews was a native of Providence and offered the name of What Cheer for a post office in the town in 1866. Petersburg was officially renamed What Cheer on December 1, 1879.

Go What Cheer, it was the nearest gas station from my parents home. I was told growing up that What Cheer was an old Welch expression similar to "what's up." What Cheer also has is known for its figure 8 racing track. Let your imagination work that one out.

Another Cub name: On my BlackBerry, when I click on the scroll wheel on a date, it gives me the option of clicking on "Mark Prior Open," as in prior messages.

So, every time I look at my BlackBerry, basically, I'm reminded that Mark Prior is hurt.

I'm dealing with it.

TRANSMISSION -

Post it as a horizontal picture, it should view better.

We spend alot of time traveling from Mauston,WI to Skokie,IL Every time we pass this sign my teenage boys start laughing. I have seen hundreds of people taking there picture in front of this sign.

This place is actually a decent fishing spot here in northern KY...

this caching thing with the comments is really annoying. any news on when it'll be fixed?

The most startling thing about What Cheer is that they're attempting to give 110%, or at least 100.5% when it comes to their population breakdown.

How is this for a 100% true Rich Hill, Missouri story:

I had my first experience driving through Rich Hill, Missouri 2 summers ago. I was on my way to Des Moines, where that very night I saw Rich Hill pitch for the Iowa Cubs!

I've also camped at Big Bone Lick state park while on a roadtrip to watch the Cubs play in Cincy.

But it gets better: To get to Big Bone Lick, you have to drive through the small town of Beaverlick, KY.

That just can't be a coincidence.

sorry about that 10man, I put a note in the comments in the above thread about the situation.

  • Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.
