That's funny - When I was typing the above I was trying to remember who had answered when I asked about pronounciation before and was also thinking it was unfortunate that I'd forgotten again (both who and how to pronounce!) lol

Thanks for your new reply!!

It's only about 5 miles away from here. It's where the National Memorial Arboretum is.
