apparently hanging out with Uncle Bob has had a strong influence on most of us.
Sure has. I'm 80% Dixie.

well, I`m not sure how (or indeed IF) the test works, but I always liked Dukes of Hazard as a kid, maybe that`s why?

I really don't know who created the test, but it's pretty funny that being a "dixie" seems to be pretty common, even for us northerners....

I've heard of leaving my heart in dixie, and dixieland of course, but no, no movie I ever saw, book I ever read or person I ever talked to referred to a southerner as "a dixie". That's a new one on me.
Actually, you said "And where did this term "dixie" come from? First time I ever heard it." I took that to mean you had never heard the term "dixie" before at all, not just referring to a person.

My result was 50%, which is about right, I guess - I was born in VA, raised primarily in MI, and have lived the last 25 years in VA.

I am 61% Dixie. I find the test flawed also. Several of the answers I gave were different areas including the South. I've lived in Florida within 35 miles of where I was born most of my life.

I agree the test is flawed. I scored a 61% as well. I was born in a Naval hospital in VA, we moved around a lot, even overseas for a few years. Most of my life I've lived in OK. I did live in MI for 4 1/2 years. They know about "Devil's Night" up there. I was aware of the term, but down here in OK, we don't call it anything.

Ahhh, yeah, I meant the term referring to a person as a dixie
Of course I've heard the term, dixie. Wasn't that one of the Golden Girls?

I could be wrong but I think the term Dixie refers to south of the Mason-Dixon line.

There is hope for you....Maybe if you order some Steens Pure Cane Syrup it will edge you ever closer to the goal....
