No one cares except for the guy from St. Louis.

I always wondered why St. Louis has SUCH a southern accent. Most everyone there talks like they are from Alabama or Mississippi. They love sweet tea and grits and greens. St. Louis is such a great southern city!

The one thing that does make St. Louis exactly like the South is climate. The Summer temperatures there these days are nearly as bad as Memphis!!!

St. Louis reminds me of Memphis of maybe little rock or New Orleans. It's so Crazy but it is nothing like any Midwestern city I have been to!

Imbored reminds me of a guy I once knew. A guy who would desperately say or doing anything he wanted just to get rise out of me. Sadly, eventually he figured out I wasn't buying into it anymore then packed up and left. I suggest that Imbored do the same. I retired with that last post from ElleTea. All I'm interested in doing is keeping the truth on here on what's Southern and what isn't. And I won't have anyone spreading spam about it based strictly on their opinions and nothing else.

Exactly like the South? Boy, all that snow on the ground and cold temperatures sure isn't anything I've ever seen before. FYI, Iowa and Nebraska get pretty damn hot in the summer too, as well as much of Illinois and Indiana. In fact, if you've been paying attention at all, the past few summers as of late have commonly seen temperatures in the mid-90s.

I was referring to much of Illinois and Indiana in the last sentence.

Dport, you knock it off too. If I'm gonna have a stroke over something I'll let you know...I don't need anyone speaking for me. Imbored has been trying to get on my nerves ever since we disagreed over something else. In fact, Imbored led me to this topic to begin with. This is my last post on here. If you all want to believe in the wrong things, it's not my business to show you the light. So long.
