I don't know if "Funcie" is supposed to mean funny or fun. I take it to mean fun. That is why I have a reminder on my car that makes me grateful to live in a fun place.

"What's there to do in Muncie, Indiana?" I have heard that too many times. My mind buzzes with all the things there are to do here.

My question is "What is it that you want to do that is not here?"

Muncie has had its share of hard times, but that is what has brought about a forward thrust to have community events, and beautiful places to walk, the arts, the river, the music, and speakers who speak to the questions within.

OK, so this blog is a list:

Libraries - something going on all the time, lots of computers and books.

Parks - nice ones and closeby a state park - Mounds
