    Yeah, sorry didn't mean anything by that. I just know that Mississippians often are generalized as being a little too country, redneck, and even at times not as intellegent. Didn't mean to offend anybody with my remark, and I can see how it could be taken the wrong way. On a lighter note, Thanks for all the welcomes. I am enjoying this site so far.

    They are? Never heard that one.
    All the Southern men I've ever met have been polite, respectful, and say "you're welcome" instead of "mmm-hmm" when you thank them.
    Looks like we've run across another one. Welcome to the forum.
