    The not-so-exciting story of how a Scottish village called Dull
    became twinned with a U.S. town called Boring
    (Daily Mail)
    more, including how the whole idea came about in the first place,
    at DM link above (along with Dull Facts and Boring Facts sidebars)

    Me too. Nice little town, at least from the highway point of view.

    I've also been through Mexico, Missouri. No passport required.

    Why can't we have awesome usual names like.....Coolpeople City, Don'tmesswithus Village or Greatplacetolive Town?

    Once again, wfgodot, your headline trumps that of the "professionals." You have a gift, you know. :takeabow:

    Thanks! I struggled with this one and still am not quite satisfied with the outcome.
