      They're imaginative with names in that family, aren't they?

        Some names are worth passing down.

          We want to relate to Americana. I went to the Indy 500 and that was Americana. I sat in various turns and I didn’t see any champagne drinkers, but I saw a lot of beer drinkers. We appeal to the wine and cheese crowd, but we also appeal to the masses – the beer drinkers.” Randy Bernard

                I find that very dissrespectful. My Father was a state police officer for 37 years for the state police in Indiana and passed away this past month. Although my middle name is not the same, you can guarentee my son will carry his grandfather's name and I hope his son will too. And you know what, I don't care if they end up as baggers for a grocery store the fact they carry that name means something to me. More then anything I believe ensuring the name continues on is a testament to who it represents for all of time.
                So I was watching this Jay Leno sidewalk interview he does and he asked someone what does the DC in Washington DC stand for.....her response...."Da Capital"....God I love this country!

                          I'd rather make my own name.
