Currently Belmont, MA - t'other side of the river from Bahstin.
Mind you, grew up in Maine (and a few other places besides).

Area sayings:

"Tha' was a wicked pissah of a Bruins game last night!"

"Yankees S---" (I'll let you fill in the blank)

"Grady Little couldn't find his bullpen with both hands"


From up in Maine, (yay FireStormReel! smile.gif ) You get things like:

"Ayuh, Bah Hahbah is abowt 40 miles up apiece. Buht ye cahn't get theyah from heeah."

Moxie - ugh. That's a drink that rates about 18 cats warm, and 26 cats chilled (ask me about the Cat Rating System sometime. wink.gif ). Should only be taken for medicinal purposes, an' then only if you're going to die anyway. I used to use it to clean engine parts.

Also, Aroostook County is just called "The County" by locals, as if the rest of Maine doesn't exist. I have this theory that folks living up there were planted there by alien spacemen who abducted people from the deep south. After the aliens were finished their experiments, they didn't know what to do with them. So they ended up dropping them off in The County.

I live in the foothills of WV. Some people still are not aware that we become a seperate state from Va. in 1863. Either state has some beautiful mountains and the most spectacular scenery they are. My opinion!!! biggrin.gif

I grew up in a little Virginia town so close to West Virginia that you could spit and have it land accross the line when the wind was right. Now I live on the coact at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. I'd be hard pressed to decide which is more beautiful.

how could I forget? Maine is the only place you can get red hotdogs and Moxie (a type of soda)

Man I had forgotten all about those. Use to live in Bath about 45 minutes up the coast from Portland. Maine's also the only state you can get REAL Lobersters dirt cheap off the boats.

I rememeber once my folks and I were in Boothbay Harbor down on some docks just south of there actually and we bought some lobster right off the boat for like 2 or 3 dollars for good size lobster. Was so fun then cooking then over a campfire back at camp. thumbs_up.gif thumbs_up.gif thumbs_up.gif

I grew up in York County, went to college in The County as well as Portland. Made my home in Brunswick for a while before moving to Beantown for a better tech job. I'd be living in Maine still, if it weren't for two things: 1) the economy up there, which seems to fear high tech in every aspect 2) the tax rates, which have ballooned out of all proportion to income - much higher than MA or NH.

How did you end up in the land of vinegar BBQ? (can you tell I'm hungry?) I have other friends from Maine living in exile "down south", in VA - one's in the Navy, though, so he doesn't really have much choice wink.gif .

FunnY I was living in Bath just up the road. My brother married a gal that went to Brunswick Schools.

And came down here for tenis and stayed. Gave up 4 years in Italy best move I ever did as I have seen a lot more then I probably would have if I went the Italy route. No disrespect towards Italy just saying where I am now in life compared to if I had gone to Italy for 4 years Army.

And don't get me going on taxes. tongue.gif
