Ok, first off I never even read jokes that are forwarded to me and I NEVER forward them onto anyone else. But my wife and I read through these and found virtually everyone of these statements was true, so I had to share ...

So what's Idaho like? We get that question often and here's my response ...
Conservative, religious, hearty and independent, family and relationship centered, but nothing extreme.
In the five years we've lived here I've found people to be friendly outgoing, God-fearing, helpful and empathetic. While we're independent and usually can do it on our own, I've also found the sense of community spirit to be overwhelming. From a benefit two weeks ago where 1,700 people showed up and raised $50,000 for a little boy with cancer, to volunteers fighting house fires or performing search and rescue operations, Idaho is a great place to live, a great place to raise a family and a great place to call home!
