I grew up in Idaho. Parents live in SLC. I have lived in Texas since ‘91.
Latin Jazz, thanks for the kind words. PR and Canada are both nice places, yet the beaches in Puerto Rico win easily. It will be relaxing and fun, and I’ll certainly continue rooting for the Jazz (and return to Utah every now and then to catch a game and see friends and family).Wishing you success in your move to Puerto Rico. Sounds like a good plan and a great place to spend your retirement (definitely warmer than Canada)
And, officially, the Turks spell the country name Türkiye. They want to disassociate the name of the country and the bird, with all its associated connotations.Odd question, but in English the name is the same for the country and the bird, is this the same in Turkish or are they different words?
The English language interpretation of the name "Turkey" is, I think, the focus of the country's efforts, but the official spelling of Türkiye applies for all languages that use the Latin alphabet.Is this only an English thing, or is it similar in other languages?
Speaking as a northerner, I don’t know that anyone believes this, especially as you can’t really (easily?) even access Arizona from the area, except Littlefield, and I don’t even think Littlefield can access anywhere else in Arizona without leaving Arizona.
I actually thought about this recently and considered how interesting it is, for instance, that England is smaller than Utah. If I were to hear a national news story coming out of St. George, I’d consider that as kinda like an extension of my home, whereas England is an entire country and I wouldn’t imagine people in different parts of England would have that same feeling. I would imagine a lot of northerners would likely feel the same way I do.
