I think I might slip in a few cheers from this side of the puddle, Congratulations!


Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

Age is unimportant unless you’re a cheese.

I thought I heard screaming coming from the direction of Oklahoma!  Major congratulations on a well-deserved accomplishment.  You might hear my screaming congratulations from the north east, too!  Great job for you and Phil; nice to hear our government finally doing something right for a change.  Hugs to you both, and celebrate big time tonight!

Congratulations Sally !!!!! YEA!!

MadMom, do you consider yourself to be in the north east? I am always interested in how people from various regions think of different parts of the country.

Actually, I would think of North Carolina (in spite of the name) as being in the South East...it is south of Virginia, after all!

Ok good.  :)  It is squarely in the south in my book, but I've met a few people in ATL who've talked about going to college in the North, at Duke.   LOL!

(post #45521, reply #65 of 77)

Well, I guess that is north of them, LOL!

Yes, but the funny thing was that most of us in the conversation were talking about going to school in the North, ie Boston. Then this girl came over and mentioned Duke. I just about spit out my cocktail. lol.
