    Hagonnag, you must have a Yankee chip on your shoulder. I'M a Yankee, thank you very much, even though my father's family (Cash--yes, I'm related to Johnny) hail from AR, and the original family came over from France to settle in Raleigh, NC in 1685.

    Pledge To The South

    The south is a land that has known
    sorrows; It is a land that has
    broken the ashen crust and
    moistened it with tears; A land
    scarred and riven by the powshare
    of war and billowed with the graves
    of her deat; But a land of legend,
    A land of Song, A Land Of Hallowed
    and heroic memories.
    To that land every drop of my blood,
    ever fibre of my being, every pulsation
    of my heart, is consecrated forever.
    I was born of her womb; I was
    nurtured at her breast; and when
    my last hour shall come, I pray
    God that I may be pillowed upon
    her bosom and rocked to sleep
    with her tender and encircling
    HagonNag and Corporal like this.

    I respect all the beautiful aspects of our country, and having seen much, I do love my Great Lakes Northland.... "By the shores of Gitchee Gumee, by the shining Big-Sea-Water, stood the wigwam of Nokomis, Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis..." (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Song Of Hiawatha.) I also love the tale of "Davy Crockett" - "Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee. Greenest state in The Land Of The Free".... I'm quite sure she'll love the history, beauty, and diversity here :)

    I must correct that - I haven't seen much in comparison to others - drove down from MI to FL, and from MI to MN as a kid. Went to Washington D.C. On a 9th gr. Field trip. Have loved N MI however, my entire life. Enjoy and respect the immense history to be found in our entire country :)
