      Hmmmmm, just a big black rectangle?

      Here is a trivia question on the geography of the USA.

      Pelee Island in Lake Erie is the southernmost point of Canada. Two questions:

      1. How many American states lie entirely further north than Pelee Island?

      2. How many American states lie in part further north than Pelee Island?

      What about the long held idea of splitting Northern Virginia from the rest of the Commonwealth? https://www.washingtonian.com/2008/1...he-51st-state/

      You like to laugh at him?

      We've had worst presidents who have put this country into such debt and high unemployment levels that I don't regard Trump as being in that category. CNN reports only the bad news about him as well as bad opinions but there are so many news releases not being shown on some news media concerning the good things he's done for the country.

      This thread isn't about Trump.....

      While I did not vote for him, IMO he has not proven to be what I feared. I REALLY like his court appointments (perhaps the single most important thing US presidents do) and elsewhere he has done okay. I'm still uncomfortable with his business "how to make a deal" approach to things (lots of hyperbole, lots of overreaching with the hope of a "deal" somewhere between, etc.) and all his noise.... but in terms of what he's actually done, he's not been so bad. I WISH he would have deleted and replaced Obamacare, I WISH the tax thing had been much cleaner, but all in all..... The two supreme court appointments alone make me happy that Hilary didn't win.


      Back to the topic....

      Fun fact about Texas, Texas comes from the word "tejas" meaning "friend" in spanish. Tejano music is basically Texano.
      Music in spanish is Musikas which is the same in Czech, Czechs/Bohemians were settled along the Colorado river in south Texas in Spanish camps, Tejano music originated from Polka (Germanic/Czech/Bohemian) which is why the "friends" have such a similar sound
