Good thread, Linda. I live in Madras, Oregon...accent on 1st syllable &of course, there is the bit more famous, Madras, now Chennia, India. Seems like I remember we were named for the plaid cloth that a local merchant sold rather than for the city in India. We're a pretty rural city with, at the time of the naming, not very sophisticated, people. 8-)

Keep it going.
