            hey. I transferred way down south a few times for
            short stints while in school and had a bunch of
            troubles with things that we say all the time and
            don't even realize they are not actual words! It is
            true about the bubbler, no one in the whereabouts of
            Arkansas, Tennessee, or Georgia had a clue what I was
            asking for! You would also be surprised what others
            must think of us here. The questions were amazing! I
            was asked things like if I lived on a farm or in a
            tee-pee (like there are no other options), if we had
            fried chicken here, and numerous others. Now I wasn't
            born in a barn, but for cripes sake almighty anyway.
            Now I hate to be a leaker, but I gots to unthaw a
            couple two three gol durn brats for lupper (one they
            left out meaning a meal combining lunch and supper)
            youse'all (the southern influence in 'all part coming
            thru) have a great day hey.

              How about in the winter you put on the "heater"?
              Or when you want to go left or right in while driving in the car you use
              your "blinker".
              This lady from England asked me what I ment by "Im going by their house
              later". She wondered if I was just driving by the house or if I was going to
              ring the bell? LOL!!

                              To your health!

                              I know what you're wondering: Isn't it time The Morning File had
                              some news from Portugal? It just so happens that the health nuts
                              who run the alcohol industry have something going on over there.
                              Some 20,000 fliers outlining the health benefits of two beers a
                              day were handed out to Portuguese gym-goers over the weekend,
                              according to Agence France Presse. Do these people really need
                              encouragement? Portugal has one of the world's highest rates of
                              alcohol consumption, but it's mostly wine. Ounce for ounce, the
                              flier says, beer has fewer calories than orange juice or milk.
                              "Forget the myth of the 'beer gut' because it is just that: a
                              myth," says the Portuguese Association of Beer Producers. Myth? I
                              detect some jealousy here. The American beer gut is known
                              affectionately as a "Milwaukee tumor." "Lisbon tumor" doesn't
                              carry the same weight.
