Jeanne ..
too funny about the Town named "Hill" ... I thought NE had some strange names for towns but I think NC has NE beat. We have "Bat Cave", "Mtn Home", "Zirconia", "Saphire", "Travelers Rest, SC" and "Suit" to name a few. Counties, Cities and Towns are organized quite differently here as well.

There's one in Vermont (think it's in Vermont) called 'Hell Hollow' hehehe - talk about strange names. There's another one in New Hampshire - 'Gonic' rhymes with Tonic. All kinds of funny names here. Then there are the ones you can't pronounce - well the non-natives can't pronounce them... Worcestor, Leominster, Gloucestor...

I can pronounce them <G> ....

I am constantly being chided for my Boston accent here in the south but what is funny is when I say something and they completely misunderstand because of the accent. For example: I asked my class participants to press CTRL + END and what they understand me to say is CTRL + N ... of course that does something entirely different. Of course, I don't think I have an accent ... but rather, they do <G> It took me nearly a year to understand (and I sometimes still don't) what they are saying to me.
