Okay. It's a little OT but somebody actually called us SMART!!!

(We don't hear that very often around here!)


***************************************************************

Indiana License Plates: What The Numbers Mean
Written by Lynnette on December 18, 2004 :: Comments


 I think that the people of Indiana are smart people for this reason alone: They don't need to have the county printed on their license plates in order to know exactly where in Indiana a particular driver is from.



Did you know that?

It's a bit of trivia that has always impressed my husband, so I figured it might interest some others too...

 Jim was always fascinated that we could be in Florida, driving past a car with Indiana tags, and yet I could remark with confidence, "Oh, they're from Fort Wayne!" or "They're from Wabash!" just by looking at their license plate.

You see, I used to live in Indiana. I was born in "71", but grew up in "52". I hung with all the military brats who lived on the base in "9". I shopped in "34" (or drove an hour-and-a-half to "2" if I wanted a "real mall"). I went to college in "53".

How Indiana's Numbering System Works
It's based on an alphabetical listing of all 92 counties within the state of Indiana. For example, license plates issued in Miami County start with the prefix "52" because it's the fifty-second county in the alphabetical listing.

If you're wondering which number represents which county, check out this alphabetical list of all 92 Indiana counties. (Click on a county to see which cities are located in that particular county.)

http://www.in.gov/dot/pubs/maps/counties/


If you're wondering where a particular county in Indiana is, check out this state map with all Indiana counties. (Click on a county to view the demographics and key facts about that particular county.)

http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/maps/indiana_map.html

Here are some interesting facts about Indiana license plates and their changes through the years.

http://www.15q.net/in.html

Florida tried to incorporate a similar numbering strategy, but ended up ditching the idea. Here's how Florida used numbers on their license plates to depict different counties from 1938 to 1975.

So there you have it!... A way to impress your friends the next time you pass a car with Indiana tags on it.

How about that?? They think we're smart!!  :D

another tid bit about French Lick Springs....remember Pluto Water?

It was, perhaps, one of the first bottled waters sold in the U.S. and was taken from the springs around french Lick. Peopled LOVED it. Whenever we felt a bit sick, my grandmother would always say, 'give 'em some Pluto water...'

it was taken off the market by the governament because it contained huge amounts of lithium which occurs naturally around french lick. and part of the reason for the name is that the deer in the area were always licking the rocks in the streams....guess why!
