    I thought "caulkhead" might have come from "chalk" like those Dover cliffs I have seen pictures of. "Somewhen" I have heard before, and have used occasionally.

    Here in the wilds of my hills, we had to get used to some local terminology as well. A "grinny" is a chipmunk. A "warble" is a kind of wormy larval thing that grows just under the skin of animals and when the boil erupts, leaves an awful large open lesion. All the farmers here know how to heal that thing. Blech! And ground beef is called "hamburg".

    In the US, we often call/refer to each other by the names of our state nicknames. Ohioans are "Buckeyes" because Ohio is the Buckeye State. Hubby is a Hoosier because Indiana (where he mostly grew up) is the Hoosier State. All 50 states have official nicknames. Once I even got yelled at across an entire parking lot here - some guy just yelled out "Hey Garden State!!!" and I responded because I was the only one in the parking lot with New Jersey license plates (happened here in Ohio before we moved from NJ and NJ is the Garden State). Lots of university sports teams call themselves by their state nickname as well. For football, we have the Ohio State Buckeyes, and female athletes are often referred to as "lady Buckeyes".

    Good job with the Coke thing. Right now I am wishing I had never heard of a Whole30. No nuthin' fun to eat.
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

      Sunday Weigh in 151lb. Hurray. My high fat diet is having positive results on the weighing scales front.

      Breakfast – boiled egg ( we were eating out and I didn’t want to go restaurant hungry
      Lunch Mushrooms drizzled in cheese and cream. Antipasti (just the meat) salad. Coffee with cream x 2
      Tea: home made broccoli, leek and stilton soup. Bacon x 2, egg, chicken thigh.

      Exercise – not much -20 minutes Frisbee on the park.
      60 minutes walking around shops while husband and youngest played mini golf. I spent at least 30 minutes looking at flasks to take a hot drink to the football matches. (how sad am I.)

      Never heard of any of your words before Badgergirl and Crabbcakes, not even the caulkhead.
      Didn’t know each state had a nickname. Liverpool folk are called “scousers”
      Good luck with your peanut butter and wine. I adore reeses peanut butter, but they are totally off the menu at the moment as unbelievably I have been eating really well for a week!!!! plus with the bonus of no chemicals from coke zero

      My friend and I are going for a personal shopper experience in a Department store at the beginning of November, where they show you clothes that will suit you. We get to spend 225 each on clothes, get a makeover and a goody bag. It cost 200 (though I have not told my husband - he is on a strict need to know only basis!!! So my aim is to weigh 147lb by then, but I fear it may be wishful thinking.
      Hope Bess is OK havent seen her on the Boards lately

          Monday

          Breakfast – boiled egg ( we were eating out and I didn’t want to go restaurant hungry
          Lunch - tongue, lettuce, olive oil, balsamic vinegar
          Tea: 3 rashers bacon, on buttered cabbage


          Was reading that when you eat high fat you should have salt, so been adding it to my food.
          Feeling food, been waiting to feel rubbish but surprisingly full of energy.

          Exercise – 50 minutes circuit training
          20 minute Walk at lunch time.

            Tuesday got weighed 150 lb(cannot recall when I was last this weight.) the high fat diet up to now is really helping weight loss. I am up to 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carbs today. Feeling really full with all the fat and unusually not tempted to eat chocolate.

            Worked from home today.
            Brunch: bacon slices x 3, egg fried in olive oil
            Snack 50 g macadamia nuts salted.
            Tea - salmon fried in butter and topped with grated cheese
            Coffee with cream

            Going to Zumba for 60 minutes later

              I am a language geek and love the discussion on language here! I am from the American deep South and we have our own share of language. Often southerners from Florida and Georgia are called crackers, possibly from the crack the cowboy's whip makes. We don't say a little of something..it is 'just a tad'. Maybe from tadpoles? In the Keys area of Florida natives are called conchheads from the conch shells. We have breakfast, lunch and supper. It used to be that lunch was the big meal of the day to fuel the day's hard work. Now it is supper. And of course there is the ubiquitous "y'all"...meaning any group more than one As in "y'all come back now, you hear!".

              3 rashers bacon, on buttered cabbage
              I have always wondered how much a rasher is?

                hello fellow cunning linguists!
                I just remembered a little bit of South African terminology. The staple remover (jawed device used to take staples out) is called a 'mother-in-law'.
                I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                  Hi Valmasson01 and Badgergirl,
                  well out of all those terms you said I have only heard of tad and y'all. Think the older generation here, my mum and gran etc when they were alive would say "a tad more" if they were offered more cake.
                  I like the MIL for a stapler.

                  A rasher of bacon is just a thin slice of bacon. Though I know when we in Florida the supermarket didnt seem to have bacon like we did at home.

                    How funny! I have always pictured a rasher of bacon as being a huge amount. What is the difference in the bacon here and in the UK? (I am also a culture and anthropology geek. I love anything about other cultures and how they are the same/different.)

                    Huh??

                        I have only just realised "cunning linguists" is a double entendre. Badgergirl I am shocked and embarrassed that I didn't realise sooner.
                        I always have to have jokes explained.

                        Bacon rashers, not sure what US bacon is like, but here's UK's.

                          I had to come and visit your journal because I'm tackling my coke zero addiction yet again. I'm loving the language conversations, though - in NZ we have lots of similarities with England, but have the influence of US TV programmes, as well as our own ways of doing things. My English friends say that they thought they'd have no trouble when they emigrated, but found out that we have quite a different way of saying some things. One of the things that cracks me up lately is the athletes talking about bonking on their marathons. Hmmmm - even though I know what they're talking about, I still have the mental image of runners or cyclists ripping off their tank tops, grabbing a fellow competitor, and running off to bonk during a race.

                          We usually talk about breakfast, lunch and tea. Supper is the treat right before bed. Sweet as

                            Hi Jac,
                            Can't remember it from James Bond films but just googled it.
                            I've just cold turkey end on the coke zero. Though I have done this before for several weeks and eventually succumbed again. Thi
                            My uncle and his family emigrated to NZ about 10 years ago. I think to Auckland (my geography is rubbish) His kids all love it, however he misses England, though doubt he would ever come back to live.
                            I can remember he moved from a 3 bedroom semi bar a busy road in Liverpool to a detached house with a swimming pool. Fabulous.

                            We use both bomkng to mean both in the UK. It is amazing all the different variations of words between English speaking countries. I shouldn't be surprised as there are loads of regional different meaning for words in the UK.

                                Tight= someone who is mean with money. Except on the Isle, when I was a lassie...
                                Tight=frigid
                                Cue confusion when, as a youngster, I left the Isle for brief jaunts and talked to overners (people who live over the water/on the mainland).
