I want to thank you for making me feel so smart. You have been putting up words that I knew the meaning before I even read any further. Doula I knew instantly. Having lived in Texas, why wouldn't I?

Well, I don't put the words up to make people feel stupid. I put them up to teach, if you already know, sometimes it is a reminder the word is still around. If I ever sound like I am patronizing or making you feel stupid, just tell me. I don't mean to be that way.
