After lurking for a short time I thought I'd jump in. Good to be here!

I have to put my mittens back on now, so I'll be tongue-tied for a while!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! For anyone not aware of the Yooper/Troll significance, some Yoopers refer to fellow Michiganders who live "below the (Mackinac) bridge" as "Trolls". The terms "Fudgie" and "Flatlander" also refer to those living in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. The term "Hillbilly" derogatorily refers to people living generally in sections of the Appalachian mountains and parts of Northern Michigan according to the dictionary, so a "Troll" might correctly describe a "Yooper" as a "Hillbilly".
