"Marhopper3 : This might get political on a non political post which isn't my intention, but do you think Kentucky re-elects Gov. Bevin this year? I really can't tell how to read the state. It traditionally would elect Democratic Governors, state cabinets and state representatives, even up until 2015-2016, but then Bevin defeated Conway in 2015, despite Conway being in the perfect mold of a traditional Kentucky Governor: a moderate Democrat. That said, I know the teachers are unhappy with the Govern..."

"I haven't been there in a year either. I want to go soon, they've reopened James E. Pepper, which was a distillery that my grandfather had a hand in starting way back when. True story, he was a church deacon and his church approached him about working for the distillery, how sinful it was, so he left JEP and became the president of Kentucky Utilities. 😂 The new owner has added a restaurant and museum to the place and he'd like to have all the things we have from the original place. I don't mind co..."

"@Marhopper3 : Now you're making me want to take a trip back to Kentucky. I haven't been there in over a year. Suddenly I also don't dislike the idea of living in Lexington at some point in the future. Lexington is low key a very nice city...."

"Marhopper3 : But I've definitely made that dreadfully long drive taking 59 N all the way to Texarkana, 30 to Little Rock, 40 to Nashville, 65 to Elizabethtown and the Gov Martha Layne Collins Bluegrass Parkway into Lexington. (Yes you could just say Bluegrass Parkway but I think Gov Collins was a good Governor in Ky history so I always say the full name). @Boston AC : I actually knew Martha Layne Collins, I did some of her PR photography, she was a tough cookie. I drive that way to..."

"@Marhopper3 : I know where Simpsonville is- even closer to Louisville! Hahahaha. Just kidding. Winchester of course is home to Ale-8, which I think they made Kentucky's official Soft Drink a few years back. Kentucky does have an interesting regional cuisine. The people there are also very proud of Kentucky, and across the state they all cheer for UK. It's something you'd have to be from there to understand! I understand referencing by large cities. I usually tell people I'm from Lexington, because they..."

"Marhopper3 : I always thought of Shelby County as slightly closer to Louisville than Lexington. Hahahaha I've driven through there, but I've never really spent much time there. While about a quarter of my family is from New England, about 62% is Kentuckian. Of the Kentuckian portion of my ancestry, about a quarter is from the Eastern Kentucky mountains and the rest (37%) of my ancestry is from Central Kentucky. @Bos tonAC : Shelby county is closer to Louisville than Lexington but whe..."
