O God, more on Buena Vista as [bju:n[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]+vIst[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]]: there is an elderly lady in
Milledgeville who is named this and called this--she is [byun[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]] for short.
In Newtown Square, PA, there used to be a funeral home called Dill Funeral
Home, a reference I hope not to the pickling that occurs there.
Doublets of Doublets: a new restaurant in Milledgeville is calling itself
"Brewers, A Coffee Cafe"--as opposed to something like "Del Taco, A Mexican
Cafe"--where I would never have dared to order a cup of coffee.
