I've never heard that. Who calls you that?


Goolge School House Rocks and Melting Pot or look on Youtube for the video! Great one that!

Also a good cheese maker is Cabot in Vermont which has won best Chedder at the World Championship of Cheese or something like that!

Cheddar isn't an American cheese - lots of countries can make it of course, but the actual cheese originated in the vicinity of Cheddar Gorge in Somerset England in early medieval times.

The housemate swears the best Cheddar he's ever tasted was made in Zimbabwe near Bulawayo in the v. early 1990's (before their glorious leader decided they didn't need European farmers). :)

wikipedia.org wrote:The melting pot is an analogy for the way in which heterogeneous societies become more homogeneous, in which the ingredients in the pot (people of different cultures and religions) are combined so as to develop a multi-ethnic society. The term, which originates from the United States, is often used to describe societies experiencing large scale immigration from many different countries.
