    I love the Shaker Village. Good food there, too.

    It's not especially he-man territory, but if you like history and architecture/furniture, it's a great place to explore.

    For many years, I'd ride in the mornings with my dentist. :)

    Shortly after turning 40, I lost my last baby tooth. Because I had no adult tooth to take its place, my dentist put in an implant.
