I should try this one again (when I'm not sitting here yawning).

Can't remember what is said before. I've lived so many places it could say anything.

(wow, Granny IS tired!)

I was surprised at MY results... but really, to the questions I expected a "British" or "English" response to, there is no category for, so I expect it gets filed under "General"?

Hi Ann,

You poor thing! Get some rest okay?

Hi Jeanette, Turtle guy, and little Jen,

I guess they didn't have Aussie in mind for this test, just us yanks. Interesting results you three had though.

I wasn't too surprised with my results because my dad was born in the south, and I was raised here in the California so you can see all that influenced my laugage skills, or lack there of.

And I guess there is a little Dixie in all of us.

I was sorry I started it.. Take care, my

Hi Merle,

I'm glad you did well, and is it a dizzy husband or a dizzy joke? It made me dizzy.

Hi Gazza,

That is interesting, and you maybe right 5% most be Aussie.

Yes, I do, and I really should post some pictures of it sometime. I actually only rent the house, but the house in in the middle of 80 acers of a baby almond orchard. ;)
