I miss the 3-5 business days standard for mail. Now I usually have to wait at least twice as long for stuff to come in the mail.

BWAhahaha! Everybody likes something different.

I like visiting the city, (live near Chicago) but could not imagine being there full time. All the museums and theaters are fantastic for those who love them, but for some of us civilized people it's just as satisfying to sit around a fire and contemplate life.

We're moving south in the near future, so I'll have a new perspective on it soon enough.

In this day and age I'm really wondering why you can't have both.

Good examples of pure Southern food are...

Grits, fried catfish, mullet, flounder, fried gator tail, fried shrimp, bbq pork, pork chops, collards, speckled butter beans, crowder peas, black eye peas w/ bacon or ham, mac & cheese (baked), cornbread (baked or fried), hominy, fried squash, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, skillet dent corn (not sweet), sweet potato casserole, sweet potato pie, pecan pie, homemade banana pudding, coconut cake, red velvet cake, peach cobbler, etc.... And of course, sweet tea.

Southern food started from Scots-Irish, English, and French settlers with heavy influence from African slaves and Native Americans. Obviously people in the coastal South eat more seafood compared to people in the upper South.
