Let's get to know one another. 

See that quiz over on my side bar?  ---------------------------------------------------------------->

Have some fun and see what your answers tell about you!  

I was surprised to find that although I try not to sound like the movie "Fargo"--even an online quiz knows I am from Inland Northwest!  How can that be?  Like an online quiz is a scientific study--yeah--sure--ya' betcha! 

I'm homegrown Minnes0000000tan and can't escape it!  

I'm a mom to three children, Katie (27), Curt (25) and Sam (16).  Over the years, our family has hosted 21 foster children...never at the same time, of course!  We are the proud foster-grandparents to three beautiful granddaughters, Kasandra, Briana, and little Hailey-bug!  

I began blogging a two years ago and this is the 2nd Ultimate Blog Party I have participated in. 
The purpose of my blog is to connect with, encourage, support and pray for other families who struggle with an adult child who is wandering--a Prodigal.  Who could have imagined the God would use the internet to bring His purpose to our lives.  

I'm so glad that you stopped by--please stay for awhile, watch a little movie, play a little Tetris, and of course, take a little quiz!  Let me know if it was right about your accent!!!!!  Can't wait to hear how Yellow Mama scores!  Or Diane!  Or Angry Buttons!  And then there's Groovy Old Lady!

I did the quiz, said I have a midland accent, and I'm from Calif. How about that!

Fun quiz! I scored *midland*. Even though I'm a Southerner, I did spend 8 years growing up in southern Ohio. I guess it shows--I still call soft drinks *pop*.

Thanks for stopping by for the party! I enjoyed my visit here.

I'm a little surprised by my results:

Your Result: The Midland


"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The South was very close, but The Midlands won out.

Obviously they've never heard me talk or they'd know that I'm about as Southern as it gets. ;o)

Have a great new week, Diane!

Love and hugs,

Diane J.

Hey...it says I'm a midlander too-- And I'm from the wild west!

Fun quiz, it said I was from Philly - that can't be right because I definitely speak like a North easterner, like NY.

It said Inland North with South and MidWest having equal ratings at the top. Although many of the words did not sound like either of the words presented LOL. I had to pick the closest one. Great quiz!

Can't wait to do the quiz - I have been told it's hard to tell where I'm from - no wonder. Is it Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, or Colorado??
I can always tell a Minnesooootan on the phone!

I would absolutely die if I had to bare my cupboards to the world!
