I agree! I lived in Texas as a little girl, and I can't believe how much stuff I still remember. Very fun!

As Bob Bullock always said at the end of any speech he ever gave, "God Bless Texas". It is a great place to live (except in the summer). We may be arrogant but there is a reason. Great quiz Lorri!

It's a winner Lorri! Great puzzle. I have loads of family there and have always loved visiting, especially when its 30 degrees here and 85 there.

Find York (the first capital) and go south south west. You can't miss it - it's huge.

York has Peppermint Patties, Texas has Ranch Style Beans and Dr. Pepper and the best barbecue.

Surreyman- follow Jank's advice.

If you come to the USA- stop by York, PA [buy or lease a Harley-Davidson ] before going to Texas.

No need for the jk, Ron. You're exactly right! And we call that scent the smell of $$. That helps us withstand it a bit easier.

Funny, Janice Around here we say the same thing about the smells from the two Pulp Mills, which are scented like really bad human flatulence. The mills are called Harmac & Crofton, & the local joke goes, Is that you Mac or Harmac, do you do that often or is it Crofton? Fortunately, with upgraded environmental controls, we rarely smell them now. A farmer down the road has the honeywagon deliver goods & spread on his corn fields, somewhat potent but that's country living for ya Only lasts a couple of days & is good use of the local dairy farms refuse. Up with recycling

My fave thing about Texas is that it's so big you have so many choices. Mountains, beach, trees, desert, humidity.

I love one of our license tag choices - horses in a field looking up at the space shuttle. We are cutting edge fast paced, we are laid back. We are moon landings and rodeos. We are spurs and Gucci.

Maybe NY is "if I can make it here, I can make it anywhere."

But Texas is "if you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere."
