    lol I don't think the peanuts in brittle are bioled. I love me some peanuts, 'cept when they's boiled. That's my Kentucky hillbilly accent, or as my Granpa would say, a Briar's accent. Hillbillies are from West Virgina. I still don't know why he said mountain-folk in Kentucky were called Briars... but I digress.

    I found this on Wikipedia: Briar - Ethnic Slur
    Briar, a term used in the U.S. Midwest, especially Ohio, for Appalachian migrants from Kentucky and West Virginia. These migrants, seeking work in Midwestern industries, were generally considered unwelcome, therefore the analogy to a thorny weed.


    That makes sense then, my Granpa calling himself (and by relation, my family and me ) a Briar. A WWII vet (N. Africa) he (with my Granma and my Dad and uncle) moved from the mountains of Kentucky to the Dayton, Ohio area to get away from the Coal industry and work in a GM plant when my Dad was little. I like the term Briar even more now.
