You have to know the difference in the glow.
I was told that frogs glow red and look like headlights.
Snakes glow gold but since they are offst look different than frogs or gators.
Gators eyes glow gold and look like half marbles.

What I meant by swamp all around is that you kind of feel like you're going to sink into the turf. Nothing like a good, solid, bed-rock feel (like in the piedmonts)under your feet here. The only other drawback is that the jungle will take over if given the chance and it doesn't take too much time to do it.

BTW For a fun summer read pick up a used copy of Thomas Pynchon's Mason & Dixon (even CherryCoke shows up in this one again.)

The book is full of songs, i.e.

Well Sailor ahoy,
Put down that Harpoon,
You're a fortunate Boy,
For ye've beach'd on The Moon,
ASnd we Moon Maidens hope,
We shall know ye quite soon,
'Tis the end of our Rope,
We need Men, in The Moon.
[refrain]
Ah, Men in the Moon,
A miraculous Boon,
Midnight and Noon, we need
Men in The Moon

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

As a way back when coin and currency dealer [not any more, but it paid for my first year of college] the "Dix note" long preceded the song. I believe it actually had the word "Dix" under a large Roman numeral "X." The story I heard was that Dixie was anywhere the notes circulated. These notes were from the era of local and private banks and, from my recall, were exceptional in that they were generally honored and not defaulted. The circulation of these fly by night banks led to the establishment of a national currency and to Jackson's effort to create a cenrtalized federal banking system.

Warning: Thread drift. When the transit of Venus was coming up, there was mention that Mason and Dixon were on their way to observe it one in their era when their ship was captured by a French man of war.

The "Dix" note was circulated in Louisiana by Citizens Bank and Trust Co., and was valid there for several years. Can't remember the exact dates. The note never was in general circulation in the South, and the derivation of "Dixie's Land" from the currency is not generally accepted.
