For each letter of the alphabet, we had to name something from the state of pennsylvania. It can be ANYTHING from the state of pennsylvania, however creative you want. For example, under "M", we have "motto" and then Pennsylvania's motto. But, the title has to be an alliterative description for each letter. For example, "Meaningful Motto".

Now, I am stuck on the alliterations for the letters, and I might possibly put a post up later on asking for help, but that's not what I am asking now.

I don't have anything for "V", "Y" and "X". I am stuck on then. And I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA!! Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi, Seashelly. SHoo fly pie is a "Pennsylvania Dutch" recipe that is very, very sweet, and you have to "shoo" the flies away from it. I believe its main ingredient is sugar. Correct me if I'm wrong, folks.
