    You know a lobster pot is a trap, not a kettle.

    The basement is refered to as "Downcellah."

    You eat supper at night and dinner at noon.

    L.L. Bean's not just a store, it's a way of life.

    "The City" means exclusively Portland.

    It's not a storm - it's a "Nor'eastah".

    You leave your keys in your car and the next morning your car is still there.

    You leave your car running while you run into a store.

    You know what Uncle Henry's is.

    You have been in more than one Polar Bear Swim/Lobster Dip or have witnessed someone doing so.

    You hit either the Fryeburg or Cumberland Fairs about every year.

    You went to "The Prom," and not just when you were in high school.

    All year long you're tracking sand in the house--from the beach in the summer and the roads and sidewalks in the winter.

    You've had arguments over the comparative quality of fried dough.

    You call four inches of snow "a dusting."

    You've hung out at a gravel pit.

    You think a mosquito could be a species of bird.

    You once skipped school and went to Bar Harbor, Old Orchard Beach, or Reid State Park.

    Even your school cafeteria made good chowdah.

    You've gone to a Grange bean supper.

    Levinskies has the best deals on "Sweatahs."

    Bob Marley is a comedian, not a singer.

    Canada is a day trip.

    You know that the accent is really a perverted Boston accent.

    You like seafood (lobster,crab,shrimp etc.)

    You understand the theory behind Dimillo's floating restaurant.

    Your aunt, grandmother, cousins, second cousins, fifth uncle, etc. all live within 10 miles of you.

    You know that the Maine Turnpike is for the tourists; real Mainers take the back roads.

    Another Jersey guy here! Central Jersey, near Washingtons crossing.
    Been here all my life (45 years), and I come from a long line of farmers. I, however have broken tradition mostly to afford to live here. Jersey has its pros and cons, and at times it gets a bad rap. We love it here, but someday we will retire to a slower paced, more reasonable area. Cost of living is way too expensive (taxes, insurance). For what I pay in property tax I could have 4 lakefront homes in VA or NC. Thats why my suburban is a 2000, not a 2008!
