    The same thing happens in Illinois: Marseilles (mar-SALES), Joliet (JO-lee-ette), Des Plaines (Dess Planes), San Jose (Sann Joe's) are just a few examples.

    Go north to Wisconsin... well, there's a whole web site with audio clips, devoted to pronouncing Wisconsin place names. You, too, can learn to pronounce Oconomowoc, Weyauwega, and Mequon.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Heck of a nice guy he is too!

    I was not overly impressed when I first tasted Bulleit, but on my trip to Kentucky I drank a lot of it and found it very good, a bargain I would say. It is, after all, Four Roses distilled bourbon and the similarities are very apparent.
