yeah, amarillo is easy. I mean if you can say tortilla or tomatillo you should be able to say amarillo, just kills me.

actually now that we're on this subject (caraway is a long dead horse at this point) - my favorite is people who can't say their own last name right

DuBois  Doo Bose
Mullinieux  Mull uh Nix

makes me want to cry


slight edit

Hebert?   ;)

It 8) WOULD be cool to meet the famous Rabid Dingo Dog in the flesh,
but alas,
I am not going to be near enough Durango town on that date to meet.


However, it should be a great time to visit Durango;
seems that the hordes of Texans and Tourons have begun to dissipate.

Would be cool to have a TR (trip report) of your findings!

Should you ever find the ability to travel north through Silver town (via train to sample Sean's wit)
and then head north over the Red Mountain,
there is the pub/brewery crawl of Ouray (your-RAY for you outa staters)
on to Colorado Boy
then Horsefly
and then up to the Gunny brewery of Gunnison
before heading over the ridge of Monarch to the east slope.

It is all the great state of Colorado.

Cheers.

DuBois, I've only know a few.  They have all pronounced it Doo Bose,  I think there's several variations, but the one that I've heard the most often is Doo Boyz.  As far as origins go, I'd have to guess that you're correct with Dew Bwah. 

Mullinieux, I've only come across one person with this name.  The few times that I've heard the name used it was closer to   Mull uh No.  No guesses otherwise.

as pinnah pointed out Ouray is another good one  (are you sure that's not U-Ray?   :)  of course if you're a local we would call it your-Ray)

When I was younger we used to dive off of the Bahia Honda bridge in the Keys.

Locals call it  Baya (Bae ah) Honda.

I will be in Durango on the 8th.

If you are driving, drop me a line.  Couple pounds of Cascade and CTZ wasting on the bine waiting for you.
I am guessing though, with your connections, you are flying.?

Hey Ruben, I missed this the first time around, but I'll come down and meet up for a beer or two. Shoot me a PM or email when we get closer and we can figure out the specifics.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
