I learned to speak a bit like your DH.

One key to the British accent is, if at all possible, you nevah evah move yoah uppah lip. Yes?

Must be rowdy good fun.

The upper lip moves to make an "R" sound. So, example, fivah or fiver.

I find accents to be charming and very interesting. I have lived and worked in enough places and with enough people of varied heritage that I have assimilated many accents. If I call my buddies in MN or GA, I "have" that accent again by the second minute.

This is in no way related to camping, RVs, or mutating. In fact, it involves that dreaded four letter word that starts with W, but I'm doing a happy dance and thought I'd share it with my mutant family.

I am the center manager for a large, multi-agency one-stop workforce center. In September, we went through our first certification process. If you've ever been involved in CARF or JCAHO, you have a understanding of what that might entail. We received word today that we achieved certification, one of only two centers so certified in our state.

YAY!

Many folks in Texas seem to believe that speaking English with a Spanish accent is the the same as speaking Spanish. It is pretty embarrassing - especially if you catch yourself joining them.

Woohoo ! ! We leave in the morning and heading for Florida for 2 months.

A bit of concern when we asked the motor home to start (wind chills to -20 last night). Start, die, start, die, max speed 10 mph, die I had to add some Howe's anti-gel and that helped a lot.

Coach running flawlessly now but the genny wants to keep dying. I think it might be a partially clogged fuel filter (due to the gelling) on the genny if there is such a thing.

Takes a motor home for ever to recover from below zero temps. The interior warmed sufficiently by the time we got the rig home from the campground.

Great news, Steve! Pics or it never happened. ;-)

I do NOT want to imagine starting my rig at that temp! Glad you are heading south, pardner. Have a great time.

^^^ Whoohoo is right! Have a great time! Pictures or it didn't happen.

Btw - do you fish. Been wondering about splitting a guide with someone at the GC @ CL - but don't know if the lake is a good fishing lake or not etc.
