The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

New Kids coming back?

Well there is a rumor floating around that New Kids on the Block are coming back. I know most of you are about the same age as I am and probably loved them as a child. I had the trading cards, beach towel, etc. I have to admit I am a little excited to see if this happens and what they sound like. GO NKOTB!

Here is a story about it....

After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together. The band's Web site,
www.nkotb.com, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks. The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early '90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994. Eighteen years later, they're still "Hangin' Tough." The oldest "Kid," Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band's demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight's brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record.

I had read about that rumor yesterday... My sister was a huge NKOTB fan. I did see them in concert once when they came to Macon. Ahhh... the memories

I remember seeing them with Marie and Mandy in 8th grade. I think it might be a bit weird for them to come back though.

I read about this the other day! While part of me thinks it would be cool, another part of me thinks it would never be as good as it was back in the day. I use to have a video tape of one of their concerts and loved singing and dancing to their songs :)

How great is this! I was going to change my ringtone to "Hangin' Tough", but Charlie thought that it was silly. Now I want to do it more than ever! How Fun.

I used to believe - really belive - that I would meet Joe McIntyre and marry him. I can't believe I just just admitted that. I can't imagine them at this age singing together. Would be very interesting.

I heard about this on the "View" the other day. One of them said they should change their name to NEW MEN ON THE BLOCK! This will be interesting! I have to admit, I was a fan too!
