Interesting.... which state would you think Dixie State University would be in? Alabama? Georgia? Texas? Louisiana? Florida?
Dixie is a nickname for the Southern United States, especially those states that composed the Confederate States of America. The term originally referred simply to the states south of the Mason-Dixon Line, but now is more of a cultural reference, referring to parts of the United States that "feel" southern.

Later it was chair, wine, and TV. I watched the series finale of NCIS with Abby leaving the show. ☹ Also, thought it funny that all three of the winners for Miss America came from states starting with "N".... Miss Nebraska won, 1st runner up was Miss North Carolina, and 3rd runner up was Miss Nevada!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
