Awesome, I'll try to make it!!
Yep, Maryland too. South of the Mason Dixon line = southern....but techically MD was a divided state in the Civil War. You should hear how some of the folks here used to badger me (from MD) when I moved to PA.
According to my family tree, my great great great great grandfather and his 3 brothers fought in the civil war. 2 fought for the Union, 2 fought for the Confederacy.
Speaking of the Civil War.....
I spotted a guy wearing a hat today that I'm certain he bought at the Goodwill in town (I saw it there a few days ago).
I went to the library and saw a guy wearing a Civil War style hat (think Confederate Army) sitting down reading a magazine as I walked through.

I like that method....let's see how it plays out....
Maryland: Chicken.....not south.
Pennsylvania: Potato Chips.....definitely not south.
On that note....you know how hard it is to find a decent batch of grits up here?....or any batch of grits for that matter.
