Actually, you crazy brits got it wrong again. Only americans from the Northeast are referred to as "yankees". During the American Civil War there was the Union (aka: yanks) and the Confederacy (aka: rebs). Yankees, Johhny Reb, and all. Call a southerner a yankee and they'll take much offense (especially in Alabama. Those people don't realize the Civil War ended...)
Cream, than you Bob. i will try to correct my fellow brits in future!
