Countess Stilly River Sage the Clement of Porton Down

wishes to call your attention to a whimsical little site called

The woman who hosts this little bit of whimsy does some nice graphic work.
Her web site is here.

An acquaintance on another list got the name

The Welsh conglomeration of letters was impressive! I hope someone here manages to hit something similar. My first entry used my Mudcat moniker. Using my first name, it's

Her Exalted Highness Duchess Margaret the Loquacious of Porton Down

It seems to detect a pattern, and certainly the demeanor. ;-D
Or does it? My nickname comes up

Lady Maggie the Portable of Frogging over Womble

Hmmm. I have moved a lot over the years. . .
