We're just up the road a piece from Manteca (lard) which is not too far this side of Salida (exit). Hmmmmm.

Back in my home state of Pennsylvania there's a town named Aquashicola. It's pronounced "Aqua Shikla."

My Dad used to drive people nuts (on purpose) by pronouncing it "A Quash A Cola."

The town of Jim Thorpe used to be called Mauch Chunk pronounced "Mock Chunk."

Been there, Connie. I used to be the editor of the little county newspaper thereabouts - county seat was Havana, IL. Next door were Bath and Snicarte (sny-cart-ee).

(also not too far from Ver-sales, Katie)

Jim Thorpe used to live in the town of Yale, OK, about 45 minutes west of where I live. The house he lived in is now a museum dedicated to him.
