    I'm curious what some of the other nicknames for particular areas are called. Where I'm at, it's referred to as WNY, or Western New York.

    My house is in the Coastal Plains of North Carolina, about 40 miles east of the farthest-eastern edge of the Piedmont Crescent. People who have lived in North Carolina all their lives sometimes refer to is as "North Cackalacky" for reasons I do not know.

    I live and work in the Detroit Metro area, also known as SE Michigan, and since I am on the southern side of the Mackinac Bridge, the yoopers refer to use as 'trolls' (because we live 'under the bridge').

    My son in law spent six months working there in a racing yard, he and my daughter are looking at going back to work though they can only go for six months. Their current trainer will arange it for them. Some of their racehorses have been bought by Kentucky owners and trainers.
