    if your state was part of the war of northern aggression, you're a yankee (yes that includes CA & UT). ;)
    if you're from west of minnesota you're a westerner (except for CA & UT).

    I think he adds a pinch of garlic too. It's frickin awesome and every time I eat there that's my side order. He also makes this amazing shepherd's pie with shredded barbecue beef stuffings, garlic mashed potatos on top, and then drowns everything with a thick layer of cheddar cheese that's always the perfect crispiness.

    Then there's the crayfish remoulade served on fried green tomatoes. mmmmmmm

    that's because of the midwesterners not wanting to be associated w/ urban craziness of NYC, Boston, etc. but for anyone from the south all states participating on the yankee side during the war of northern aggression IS a yankee state.
    if you want to be truly technically correct, ONLY people from new england (CT, RI, MA, VT, NH & ME) are yankees.

    We call them grits (well I call them gross but DH likes them). I don't consider myself a Yankee, but a Midwesterner. Not that I would be bothered to be a Yankee, but I associate that designation more with the northeast. Lol, I have heard Indiana referred to as the "northern most southern state" often though.

    I LOVE grits. In fact, I've got coffee percolating and grits cooking. I'm just doing a bit of spray butter (darn this diet junk), but cheese grits and grits with lots of butter are just plain deliciousness.

    About the only thing I've noticed about people from further south are the accents. I worked at a grocery store years ago. During the tourist season, a lady came in with a very thick accent and constantly talking about Jesus. She got odd looks from many of the customers.

    If someone with a southern accent says to you, "bless your heart," it's not a compliment ;)

    Kind of like if you're in the south and someone from the south says, "you're not from around here, are you," you might want to consider leaving the immediate vicinity. That's not a compliment or benign curiosity about your lineage.

    However, if you're in the south and someone who isn't from here asks, "you're not from around here, are you," it likely IS a compliment, or at least an invitation for conversation.

    Bwahaha. I've witnessed conversations similar.

    "You're not from around here, are you?"

    "Um, no"

    "Bless your heart."



    I laugh. A lot. Bless your heart isn't always an insult, just like it's not always a... whatever you'd call it. Sometimes if someone has had something terrible happen "bless your heart" is a sincerely meant, um, expression of, like, well wishes, or something.

    I fail at explaining things. But yeah. It's not always bad.

    "you're not from around here, are you" usually is. Depends on the tone taken, what's happening, what the person who's not from around here is doing, ect.

    Oh, and if someone prefaces a remark about another person with "bless her/his heart . . ." they aren't getting ready to say something nice about the person, lol.

    Sums up my entire 10 years in the Memphis area.

    ETA: "Are you related to so-so?" Is often a trick question.

    What they really mean to say is, "You're not from around here, are you?"

    They just don't want to appear assuming.
