I am surpised what a shock it is to hear everybody in Hastings speaking in a different accent.

PB, I am sure I would find Texas a shock to the system.

But it does seem kind of appealing. I will keep it in mind if I emigrate.

Mae, are southern Germans considered to be quaint rustics in the north?

Colin, I am afraid I much of your blog incomprehensible.

I am glad Ian Paisley does not preach (or at least transcribe his sermons) in that dialect, because I enjoy them a lot.
