Re: Anyone here from Columbus, Ohio...or there abouts??

@loveschocolate, yes, you responded when I called Ohio State fans trashy. It’s actually one the more polite things I say about them. I’m not changing my mind. I have degrees from Penn State and the University of Alabama. Of course I’m fans of those schools.

Did you also dig up the post about how my 12 year old was assaulted at Ohio Stadium last year? His shoulder was separated.

Nonetheless, I have a pretty good career going with this company so I’ll bids my time in a city I hate until I make my next move. Hopefully to Ann Arbor or Knoxville or Baton Rouge or any place with a less obnoxious fan base.

@RollTide2008, I have no problem with Penn State or Alabama fans. I can get along with all of them.

Re: Anyone here from Columbus, Ohio...or there abouts??

I am in columbus this very minute.  We spent the day at the Ohio museum of art.  It was wonderful!  What a beautiful building, and the art museum collection is stellar. What a day, I love it.  We have eaten twice at a place called Tiger +Lily.  We had a authentic ramen bowl. We have also been to Pat & Gracie's for some good  comfort food.  It is a treat for me because we always eat organic and healthy, with low carbs.  So we got a dose of the good stuff this weekend.  Lol. Best food I had was at the museum cafe. We tried a fried green tomato sandwich and a crab patty sandwich, with the best kale salad I ever had. Tomorrow we are headed for Short North, the art district and will visit galleries, shops and graze our way down the block.  I heard the food is so good.

 

i have two observations .  From the plane we went over Dallas, into DFW airport.  It was raining, but it was so green with trees from the plane.  I always thought Texas as drier land.  This was beautiful.  And Ohio, oh my.  They have more water here than God !!!  So green from the plane, and the area around columbus beautiful.  I love California, as I am in a long line of born and bred Californians,but we are a new state compared to Ohio.  The old buildings here are brick!!  So striking, and well preserved!  Downtown Columbus is so historical and artsy.  You can tell they are proud of their city, and it is so clean.  

 

It turned cold here as we arrived, for which I was grateful. So my sweaters and jacket will work out well. There was a a street faire tonight and groups singing in the street.  Nice.  

 

We had a long trip yesterday, and there was a slight delay leaving DFW airport, we were so tired last night and in California time zone.  We had got up at 3:30am PST.  So we traveled for a long time, arrived and ate and visited granddaughter.  She was so happy to see us. She arrived with backpack and toothbrush is staying with us until tomorrow as she is excited to sleep on a real bed and without 3 room mates.  Most of all she was excited to eat food besides cafeteria food.  Lol. And lounge around with us. We were woke up at 5 am with a fire alarm and i had to go downstairs in my peace sign pajamas.  One person joked,  you must be from California!  I am still laughing.  But i was mad about getting up!  Someone set the alarm off with popcorn in the microwave.   Grrrrr

 

Report back Tuesday, afteri we return home.

@shoekitty  Did you mean the Columbus Museum of Art?   If you think that museum was really good, you should some day visit the world-famous Cleveland Museum of Art!  Oh wowza - you'd be in for a real treat.  They have a world-famous impressionist art collection, including humongous Monet waterlillies paintings that are so famous they go out on loan to other museums.  And the symphone orchestra is also world class.  University Circle in Cleveland, where these two places are, also has a great botanical garden and a science museum.   I have been to both cities before and hands-down, the true cultural attractions are in Cleveland (not to mention the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, right on the shore of Lake Erie).

 

I took a tour once of the State Capitol building in Columbus, and it was quite interesting.  The building was restored to look like its original interior.  The most interesting point the tour guide made was pointing out all the wooden doors in the building.  They couldn't find the actual wood used in the original building, so they used other wood, had it stained the same light color, and they had the grain patterns of the wood painted on to be exactly the same of the originals.  I couldn't tell it was painted on wood grain rather than actual grain.   The tour guide said they were hoping the doors never got scratched, because of the difficulty in finding the artists who could paint on the pattern of the original wood grains.  Fascinating!   Also interested is the interior color (paint) of the walls in the state capital, a peach color!   It was very odd, but that was the same color as the original when the capitol was built.  The tour was so interesting!

Re: Anyone here from Columbus, Ohio...or there abouts??

I am home,   Nice trip, most awful travel experience ever.  I will never go through Dallas/fort worth airport again.  It was 2 miles from ohio to dallas flight to catch connection to san jose.  Only time I was grateful  to be disabled a bit, and I got a wheel chair and a ride on a car to gate.  But they switched gates twice, as flights were cancelled.  We boarded plane late, and then spent another hour in fplane  at gate while they inspected a scrat ch on plane..  It was a 14 hour trip from ohio to san jose. Inclusing waiting for planes.

 

but time in Columbus was wonderful, and look forward to going there again.  So much we didnt see.  It really is a city of the arts, and building preservation!!  But when I go, I think I will fly into LAX and then fly non stop to ohio!!!  I dont care if I have to pay more.

 

i got an epidural weds before we left.  I think I over did it, and got the most horrible spasm in back while we were waiting at gate.  Seats were locked into upright position.  Then when flight began found out I could not lower seat because it was in seat front of exit door.  I wanted to die.  But made it home.  We got home and hugged my cat at 12am
