Pretty much what I figured. I was raised on the west coast, and have spent many summers and holidays with realitives in Philly/Jerz for the better part of 3 decades.

And yeah, Ill take you up on that offer to help me snowshovel when I move to Philly in Fall of '08. Im gonna hold you to that sucka!!

Texas here! (obvious from the screen name! LOL). 100% Dixie. It may be my advanced age, because I said I called the thing one pushes around the grocery store a "buggy." That is what I grew up calling it, but I notice that younger people in Texas don't use that term so commonly anymore. Just like many say "submarine sandwich" rather than calling them "po' boys" like used to be common down here.

LOL OR, even worse, a "grinder." I just HAVE to share a bit of a funny story about that; which illustrates cultural differences very well.

Some years ago, I went on a "blind date" with a girl from Massachusetts (she had kinfolk down here with whom I was aquainted with, they "set me up" with her). Anyway, we hit it off pretty well (in fact, we are still friends and keep in touch a bit) and while driving around (I was showing her parts of East Texas) she suddenly turned to me and said: "You know what I would really like? To have a good grinder!"

Oh man, I thought, I have heard about the frank way northern girls come right out and say what is on their mind, and have I ever hit the jackpot...WooooHoooo..

Hey, how the hell was I to know she was referring to a "submarine sandwich"????

____

But what the heck is up with "milkshake" being a southern thing? Isn't that an everywhere thing? They claim people in the north call it a "malted" what the heck is that? I have heard of a malt, but no one uses that word anymore, it's old fashion.
