Auburn Hills is a very nice upscale area of suburban Detroit....

I lived in Michigan and although it was hard to adjust to at first coming from CA., Michigan really grew on me, I really liked and enjoyed it. I traveled down to Ohio and Kentucky and both of those states were very nice too.

The little white collar criminals get nailed. The big ones don't, generally. However, I was gratified to see this week that Jeff Skilling of Enron lost his chance to get out of prison. Best, Don Bauder

We lived in Ohio (Cleveland) 7 years. Both our sons were born there. We lived in a beautiful area. I haven't seen it since 1973, but I would like go to back -- for a day or two. Best, Don Bauder
