    "Throgs Neck" I thought us Brits had cornered the market on weird and unusual place names. Obviously not--is it a corruption of Frogs Neck?

    At least it is short-have a butchers at where I am living. "Wh"is pronounced as "Ph" in Phone

    Ok, gang, more stuff for the Buffs . Two of the companies at the Triangle Shirtwaist fire had motorized apparatus rather than horse drawn rigs.

    What companies were they?
