Names and proper pronunciation fascinate me to no end. For instance there is the Willamette River, my Mom was certain that I was not saying it right, but a disinterested third party confirmed that I was was right, it's Will Lamb It - Damn It! <VBG>
My sincere apologies to anyone offended.
People likewise are in a state of disbelief when I tell them I've been from Boring, Oregon to Remote, Oregon via Drain and Zigzag. (actually I haven't been to Zigzag just yet), but I've been on either side of it.
