>> a while back, ( before it got all quiet on the list ) it was pointed out

>> our mannerism's are not big city mannerism's, our ways of seeing things
>> not big city / corporate , but more small town, church social.

>> silly enough to attack ansteorra !!
>> I believe we also did a regionally sponsored feed this year, as well as

>> others may knock us down , but we are just too darn stubborn to stay
>> others may block our path, but we are just too darn stubborn to quit .

>> and then we'll do it a few more times for good measure : )
>> so what word or words do you believe brings to mind an image of stubborn

>> themselves ? ( both in service and property ) .......
>> for me ( at least right now ; ) , the words I would use to describe the
>> populace of the northern region would be " the honor bound !! "
>> just my opinions, your 2 liter may not be as full ; )
