I'm sure you're aware that "fractured" Dutch and German have been a
source of humor for Americans for a long time. From childhood I remember:
peepenflapper = chick
quackenflapper = duck
honkenflapper = goose
waggenbarker = friendly dog
bitenbarker = unfriendly dog
loudenboomer = artillery shell
grosseloudenboomer = 500 lb bomb
loudenboomermiteingrosseholengroundundalleskaput = nuke
In Ustin it is 8.25%
My son recently went to San Francisco and reported that those pore soles are
being taxed to death but hey they think they have a safer environment in
the middle of an earth quake zone. LOL. They also have a "Health Sales
Tax" IIRC sales tax there is way way over 10% perhaps in the 12-14% range.
Yes, Jersey has these development zones where to get commerce going they
lowered the tax rate. Who decides on what where, I don't know. I just
take advantage. Usually I like to bike a few hundred yards to Goodman's
Hardware. They have most everything I need that can be had from a
neighborhood hardware store, including shellac. Today I had to go far
afield to cash in my Costco Amex rebate, and decided to go by Lowe's on the
way back. It was hard, but I managed to skip a visit to MicroCenter
computers next to that Lowes ...
That seems almost in the middle of NC, SE of Winston-Salem, so if that is
close to you, High Point State Park is close to me (HPSP is in NJ, very
close to Port Jervis, where NY, NJ & PA meet. Although for "woods" we
mostly go to Harriman/Bear Mountain, the Shawangunks or Catskills.
And I pay Fed, NY & NJ income taxes in addition to the sales tax. And I
am happy to pay them. If I weren't, I wouldn't have income <sheepish
Where in ET? I'm west knox.
Oh, and yeah, our sales tax stinks...... That was the main part of the
reason I was hoping to find some big iron at the woodworking show (just to
bring this back on topic :-))
The Dutch know a thing or two about long words. To wit:
and my favourite:
don't forget floccinocinihilipilification......
