Quote from: foots on October 14, 2009, 03:58:27 AM Contraste, I was thinking the same thing about England. I've noticed from watching TV and from a few people I've met that the accent changes in different areas of the country. I once met 2 nice older fellows here that were on vacation or holiday as y'all folks call it. One guy was from Birmingham (England, not Alabama) and I could hardly understand him and his friend had more of an Irish sounding accent, though I'm not sure where in England he was from. D/P is correct. I love to travel to other parts of the country when the opportunity presents itself. I enjoy meeting people. When I lived in Houston some time back, I met people from Haiti, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Laos, Ecuador, Thailand, Vietnam, Nigeria, Michigan, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Oklahoma ect... and made friends with most of them. McHeath, I could be down to my last dime, but I'd cut back on eating before I'd even think of turning off my AC in the summer.

Quote from: NorthernMan on August 16, 2011, 03:15:03 PMWell i was finally succesful in getting the arrestor. I am ashamed to say i changed a few items in my Ebay account to make it appear i am an American so that i could bid. The price of the item was relisted lower and so got an even better deal. The sellers were extremely cooperative and sent this GIFT to me.Thanks to everyone .... this forum is the best on the WWW.
