Great things to come out of Ohio

For years, my sister has had a 'great things from Ohio' list.  We have added to it over the years, and to my knowledge, it's never been written down.  In honor of our trip to the Buckeye state on Wednesday, and our impending reunion with one of the funniest people in the world (my sister, again!) here is the list.  I'm sure it's incomplete, but it's a start.

  • Smuckers
  • My sister Alison
  • Buckeyes: trees, nuts, candy
  • The Wright Brothers
  • Thomas Edison
  • Bob Evans
  • Wendy's
  • Stouffer's frozen foods
  • American Greetings 
  • Longaberger Baskets
  • Drug Mart
  • Nickles bread and Donut Fair™products
  • Great Lakes beer
  • The hot dog 
  • Cedar Point
  • Malley's Chocolates
  • Neil Armstrong  
  • SEVEN U.S. Presidents!  Can you name them?  I can because I looked them up:  Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William H. Taft, and Warren G. Harding
  • Ermal Fraze, who invented the pop-top can in Kettering, Ohio
