Obviously I have nothing better to do at the moment. I checked google maps. There seems to be a view of what could pass as wooded bluffs from one of the bridges (where the interstate goes over the Mississippi north of the cities).

There also seem to be some rolling terrain in parts of Moline when I checked google earth. I found them by looking for roads that weren't straight.

I mention this because this old friend (no idea where she is now) was quite offended when I suggested the idea that the Quad Cities was so flat during during a conversation we had so many years ago.

Yeah. I'll have to check out the Quad Cities. I know it's not on top of most people's list for places to visit. But that gal was so passionate about the area. You'd think it was one of most popular places to visit in the world like visiting Tuscany or the English Countryside.

It would be nice to visit a city that isn't so often mentioned in the travel magazines.
There is nothing special about the English countryside. But then again I live in it. But perhaps it would be fair to say one persons special place is anothers person boring place. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say becuase you live there and it's on your doorstep so to speak you see it everyday so it's normality for you.

Re: Missed it by *that* much.

I had a similar thing happen to me once. A woman parked her little truck out front, and it began rolling down the slope in the parking lot. I thought it was going to roll into my land yacht Dodge Royal Monaco (this I had before a Fairmont).

I chased it down the slope, opened the door and pushed the brake pedal with my hand. It slowed and the open door caught me by surprise. I steadied myself and pushed again and got it to stop. It went past my car almost to the street below.

Did I mention how God really hates me?
