    In my experience, Southerners are more concerned about being Southern than Northerners are with being Northern. I don't mean that in a pejorative way, it's just an observation.

    I certainly meant Southern as opposed to southern; sorry for my error.

    If that makes sense.
    Similarly, when speaking of "The South" in cultural terms as opposed to geography, only some parts of Florida count.

    1. If you and your spouse had a son, would you name him Sherman?

    Carpet-bagging Yankee transplants like me wouldn't have a problem with it.

    Southerners would.

    2. If there is a 10% chance of snow flurries 3 days from now, what do you do?

    Carpet-bagging Yankees don't even notice.

    Southerners start getting as excited as 4 year olds on Christmas morning.

    3. The word "barbecue".

    Yankees think it is a verb meaning "to grill".

    Southerners know it is the art (and I do mean art) of smoking a pig to make the tastiest pork on the planet.

    4. You want a carbonated soft drink.

    Yankees ask for a "pop" or "soda".

    Southerners ask for a Coke. Or sweet tea.

    5. It is New Year's Day. For good luck...

    Yankees eat pork & saurkraut.

    Southerners eat black eyed peas & greens.

    Virginia is probably a complex state these days. I've had friends who lived in Northern VA and, with all the influx of people from all over the country to work in the DC metro area, it doesn't have a Southern feel to it. Yet a friend of mine from Richmond was very much a "Southern Belle" type. And then there are my wife's cousins who live in the Blue Ridge Mountain area who are very much proud "Hillbillies."

    Cincinnati and Hamilton County are very much Midwestern in my mind. With its strong immigrant identity, (so strong in fact that many Cincinnatians differentiate between German Catholics and German Protestants), it has much more in common with cities like Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Chicago than it does with the South, where cities tend to identify as "Southern." However, in some of the rural areas around the city, you get some Southern wannabes who paint Confederate flags on their barns. Of course, you get people like that in Northeast Ohio as well.

    Southern Florida is not part of "the South", as far as I'm concerned.

    Not only that. Heck, Cincinnati differentiates between German Catholics and Irish Catholics. You wouldn't believe the argument that ensued when our good friend, the Kelly family son came home to announce he was going to marry a good Catholic girl and thought his parents would be proud of him. Upon learning that she was a German Catholic they were totally disgusted that he didn't know the difference...true story

    Ever heard of White Irish Pudding?

    This stuff bears a striking resemblance to goetta. My wife has a theory- German women married Irish men and cooked them the best approximation of this dish they could muster and called it Götte, or Platdeutsch for "grains and meat". Our own family recipe comes from the German wife of an Irish immigrant, both of whom were Catholic. I've always wondered how that went over at old St. Mary's.

    I married an orange wearing, Irish....East Sider. To say there were looks askance would be correct, but since we served loads of beer at our wedding, all was forgiven.

    That's some unattractive food.

    You also meant, what is one's "connotation" of the word. Nobody can have an opinion on the "dictionary" definition.
