This is a repeat of an earlier thread, but I couldn't find it before the great crash of '01.
I'm always interested in seeing the locations of the various users. Just a general area such as city and province/state, or even just the region of the country you're from. I think it's great how many countries are represented here, so go to you're profiles and fill in that location! I'm not a stalker, honest, but just interested. By the way there seems to be lots of new people on the forum now. WELCOME ALL!

I work in New Orleans and live in the adjacent suburb of Metairie, or more correctly, unincorporated Jefferson Parish (like everyone else's counties).

Now, in case you should visit, let me try to give you a pronunciation guide.

New Orleans is NOT pronounced N'awlins as is it often depicted to non-residents. It's a little more complicated. The New is pronounced kind of like Noo, but short and does kind of run into the second word. Now the difficult part is trying to describe the pronunciation of the first syllable of Orleans. It is somewhere between a long O and awe, and there is kind of a rising inflection. Interestingly, the same O/awe sound is found in words like John and darling, and John can become a two-syllable word as in:
"Jo-awn, wheah y'at, doawlin'?" To which, of course, the appropriate reply is, in the vernacular of our contemporaries: "Awriiight!"

If you are ever headed this way, by all means give me a call. It is much easier to demonstrate such pronunciations than to try to describe them. Just please, don't say N'awlins. Somebody might knock you right off the neutral ground when you are on your way to make groceries! But vocabulary is a whole other story. :-)

Well, right now I live in Sumter South Carolina, on Shaw AFB. The best part is that there is a great trail only 18 miles away!! But, my dad is in the Air Force, and in the Air Force an officer is moved every 3 yrs. My dad has been on station for 2 years so he'll be getting orders in the Fall/Winter time frame, and off we'll be, to who knows where!!! Maybe, just maybe Utah.

Pete,

I lived in the Atlanta area for four years. In fact, I use to ride at Yellow River all the time. I would head up to Northern Georgia all the time to do some Mt. biking. Bull Mountain, Bear Creek, and Helen were some of my favorites.

I live in Georgetown Kentucky, which is just a few miles north of Lexington. My weekend rides take me through some of the most beautiful horse farms in the world.
