boynton is a very rare female name.
Very few females in the US are named boynton.
Be proud of your unique name!

...and I imagine there are even fewer females named boynton in Australia...

(as for my real names, first and last, I would have to be proud of my uniqueness in the US apparently. But my middle name sits at #86)

Comments: names

Sorry - a friend has alerted me to the fact that I tell a lie.
My first name IS a unique name for Males in the US.
But not so unique for us females apparently - and sits at #37 - even more common than my middle name.
Who knew?...
I was distracted.

I spy with my little limpid pool peeper, a name listed at Number 11.


Female hoop atop.

What could it all mean?

As ein Stein once cryptically said: "An omen, is an omen is a no man is an island except after 'c' which has 28 days except in the leap year of the dog that got the cream that lived in the house that Jack built."

Simple '99', when you look at it that way.

A sovereign and a half each way if you don't mind, my good turf accountant.

Just been informed by the better 3/4s that we shall be gracing MVRC tomorrow on account her deciding to use a dining package freebie she obtained by being part of a MVRC survey. (Errrr, you need a survey to find out if hiking the price of Cox Plate entry to $50 had anything to do with the smallest crowd for a decade?!)

Anyhow, we shall cast critical eyes over the aforementioned No. 11. (a) Before the race to see whether an investment of Kerry Packer proportions would be justified. (b) After the race (if said investment comes unstuck) with an eye to broadening Doug's dietary intake.

OMG - 'What a thrill!!!'

What could it all mean? A wager on myself?

She rarely has a tip y'know.

This is getting sillier! (And all true.) She has been informed this evening that she was the winning contestant in the competition to suggest a new name for the MVRC members' news magazine.

Thus, on Cox Plate day 2004 the Vice Regal couple will be looking down on the hoi polloi in between knocking back plate after plate of complimentary truffle-larded lobster humidor nestled on a bed of taylor made honey-glazed broad beans and glass upon glass free Moet et Morwell from a complimentary dining box overlooking the finishing post. How to invest the $10,000 complimentary betting money? (Sorry, that was the mandatory untrue bit.)

(However, being Fawlty MVRC Towers, we could end up with now't more than powdered egg over our faces and a cold cup of Uncle Tone's herbal tea spilled on our laps by Narelle Smiggins the work experience table-top dancer.)

Many large parcels of bit-sized nourishment headed in Doug's direction on the morrow.

The horse-racing patois is I believe, "ran an inglorious last".

I was too busy too get to the TAB. Luckily.

But I did tune in time to to hear the words:

"...And last of all was Boynton"

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast

Where have all the donkeys gone?
(Gawn to douglas every one...)

But in the spirit of Seabiscuit I hope Dylan is indeed prophetic, and I shall be keeping an eye on the form of Boynton.

(btw - congrats to Mrs. S for the win and may the Cox Plate deliver the Moet to the Vice Regals.)
