a little about philly

I thought some information on Philadelphia might help you get a better picture of where we'll be.

Philly is best known for things like the Liberty Bell and cheesesteaks but there are lot of other things you probably didn't know about the 5th largest city in the US.

Did you know that the first secure website purchase was made from Philadelphia? He bought a CD.

The first piano built in America?...yup, Philadelphia.

Apparantly the idea of hanging out in a bar and discussing weighty matters was common in Philly, with the likes of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin spending time at the City Tavern.

And, the picture below will remind you that the movie Rocky (shot in 28 days) was filmed in the "city of brotherly love."
