  1. I’m curious about people from Illinois being called Egyptians. I’ve lived there for more than 50 years and have never heard that. There is a town in southern Illinois called Cairo but it is not pronounced like the city in Egypt. It’s pronounced Cay’-row.

    • Well, I’m relying entirely on Wikipedia here, as you can imagine! I just took another look, and it refers to http://www.netstate.com/states/intro/id_intro.htm where I read, “In the days of the gold rush, Idahoans were sometimes referred to as “Fortune Seekers” because of the number of people who went to Idaho to find wealth in gold and silver mining.” So I guess this one is historical. If I’d known that I wouldn’t have included it, or I’d have said something about using historical terms in the intro. I’ll be more careful next time ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You did really well then, Carol! And it seems ‘Fortune seeker’ for an Idahoan is historical – see Courtney’s comment and my reply above. Thanks for playing ๐Ÿ™‚
