Yeah me too, notice the sunshine state is apparently anything but. That's okay, I'd a lot rather have the water than not.

If that huricane swirls in from Yucatan you may get plenty of water.

I haven't...I have a very small vocabulary...

My father and one of his brothers have though...They told me it is possible and only a few problems with dialect...

You have to remember that there are French Canadians and then there are French Canadians...

When the Acadians were pushed out they came down through Vermont and way northern New Hampshire...Most continued on to Louisianna, but some set up shop up here...There are true Cajuns in the Kingdom...In Louisianna there are French and French too...The Cajuns and The Creoles do not mix much or get along well I have been told, and they sound amazingly different...

In 1986, I went to New Foundland (pronounced 'newfun-lAnd' by the way)...The woman that went with me was lost...I had to interpret almost every word for her...And that was English lol...Sounded pretty close to the people that I knew from the Kingdom...

PS...The Northeast Kingdom is the part of Vermont that is not in the Green Mountain Range, but is actually the piedmont of the White Mountains of New Hampshire...Tis a different world from the rest of the state, and a place I hope to live someday...

I spent a lot of time in Louisuana,Never learned much of their talk.Most mix English and French like a garden salad.You are right about the diffrent groups of them.Some are sort of Spanish looking. I still have friends and kin there but I decided I like here better.The people in Lafayette and around there are nice country folks and I have had some good times with those folks.Baton Rouge has very friendly down home folks for a big city but New Orleans,,Just look and leave as quick as you can or you will find all you pockets are empty.
