    I think all may be true for my sister, who uses "dontcha know" in most every sentence. She has GB stickers and such for her motorcycle and snowmobile.

    Well, I guess I'm from close to Wisconsin, 'cause I got most of them. I'm even married to someone who had to milk cows in the morning before school. Lots of dairy farming in Cookie's family. Of course, the part about the cold, definitely doesn't apply around here. Temp hits 55 and I think I'm freezing to death.

    The Texas meme was ho-hum, but the Austin one was fabulous and right on. Take a look at it. It's not without reason that the town's motto is "Keep Austin weird."
