    Ive heard the term "Mole Men" used by Syracuse residents to describe the NY Snow birds who come out of the Florida AP, continually blinking after being blinded by their 1st appearance of the sun...... Having spent much time in Upstate NY, particularly Syracuse .... I can well understand that analogy.

    the ole man used to say Chim-a-knee. God love them though, they were victims of regional areas struggling with the proper pronunciations of the English Language.

    However fear not..... they have classes for those who's wants ta move dare..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sMI2jb16eo
