A Rose By Any Other Name

My relatives send me lots and lots of various stuff in email. Breadline Design totally got my attention today. For some reason this site got me to giggling and only because I think we've all seen it play out in blogger names, domain names, etc. etc.--- mine included.
Who knows I may snag a newer and cooler name from this site.
