"She was right, more or less, about the pronunciation of Boadicea; it's
just that Boadicea's name was really Boudicca.
If I remember correctly."
A propos of nothing much, just seizing a floating thought - did anyone else
have that coloring book of famous women? It was so awe inspiring that I was
afraid to color in it. My favorites were Boudicca and Lady Murasaki. Poor
Florence Nightingale and Golda Meir were less exciting from the coloring
perspective: it didn't seem right to do them up in fuschia and turquoise.
I like didjeridoo and boomerang a lot - Wagga Wagga is just *great!*
Here's some for your enunciation pleasure from where I grew up: Monongahela,
Allegheny, Punxatawney, Youghiogheny, Ligonier, Lackawanna, Susquehanna,
Cuyahoga. Iroquois is a favorite of mine as well.
