    Cool. I was born in Mobile and spent the first seven years of my life there before moving further up the state. It's a beautiful city, rich in history. Everyone associates Mardi Gras with New Orleans, Louisiana but it started first in Mobile and is still celebrated there. Sorry, that was a tangent.
