No. Some days, however, I rhyme with "witch".

Actually, I'm more of a "Toto".

OK, I'm sorry (getting the apology out of the way first ) but I think this is what makes all the other incidentals (diction, drivers, etc) rattle my cage. If "we were here first" is what counts the people in the Boston area should talk like Virginians! You see, there is this little thing on my side called "History". The first permanent English colony, which has been continuously occupied since 1607, is Jamestown, VA. Guess we should all sound more like people from the Tidewater region. If you want to go back further, to the first European settlement, you only have to visit the delightful city of St. Augustine, the Plymouth of FL. Granted it was the Spanish that landed there, but they can claim a permanent settlement since 1565. And don't make me go back through the Native Americans. Which Tribal language do you prefer?

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is your history lesson for today. Guess I'm such a CrabbyCook contrarian because I was born and raised in the Connecticut Western Reserve. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some work to do to tuck my tongue back through my cheek...

Seriously, if that were true, we'd all be taking some Asian dialect as the first humans in North America were nomads from Asia who crossed over on the natural land bridge connecting Asia and Alaska.

Probably right Andy, although Himself had suggested Russian.

When it all comes down to it, we'll probably all be speaking ////////////. *

*sorry, the censors got to it.

Desperately trying not to piddle this morning while waiting for my builder to arrive, I am looking for recent youtubes of last weeks Mumford and Sons concert here. And I finally learned how and why we were an unlikely venue for this band. They asked to play here, mainly so they could visit the pueblo and to meet and play with Robert Mirabel, a world renowned flute player. Many poor quality videos have shown up, but here is link to a really decent sound and visual video.

That was a really good video. Thanks for sharing, Beth. My son and his family live in Alamosa, Co, so they drove to Taos on Mother's Day for fun. They really enjoyed it there. Now I know what some of the town looks like.
