(The subject came up here:
http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/t9397-my-results#90326

I don't know if there is a "common" way to remember but I thought about it and came up with this: From a grammar class I recall that a, e, i, o, are common vowels that come after four of the "M" states. As in MA, ME, etc. Then you are left with the other four states that end in s,t,d, and n. Those letters make me think of a simple sentence, "STD-No!"
So here are your 8 "M" states-
MA, ME, MI, MO, MS, MT, MD, MN
I swear I just made this up. Razz

SEDATION

MS
ME
MD
MA
MT
MI
MO
MN

Llama Momma, you are obviously a youngster. When I was in grade school, state abbreviations were things like Mass. Conn. Wash. Calif. Wis. etc. etc. etc.





I am soooo old.....

Very funny Martha, did you notice we're the same age? But I do remember when they were abbreviated like that too.

I know there is an on-line Scrabble game, although I don't know how it is played.

I remember in public school in the 50s one of my teachers whaked knuckles with a ruler. Not me of course. I was a good kid Laughing

Hey Boffer, why is you signature showing today as a box with a red x in it?

dunno, I'm using the weather thing that looks like yours; for some reason it didn't load.

Boys still got swats when I was in school. What hurt the most though, was that the wood shop teacher would make us make our own paddle for him to use on us. He had quite a wall full of paddles.

Wow! That's not nice!

When I was in school, my class was the first one to have the girls take shop and the boys take Home-Ec for a quarter. I'm surprised the HE teacher survived - although there was only one incident of one of the boys smashing on egg on his friend's head!

On the other hand, the shop teacher (whose name - no kidding -was Mr. Carpenter) said he never had it so easy as with us perfect girls! (NR - did you get us the shiny halo emoticon yet? Twisted Evil )
