99 Words on "What's in a Name?"

“What’s in a name?” Plenty.  Take “The Worshipful Company of Gardeners”.

Chartered in 1605 to practice the “crafte or misterie of gardening, planting, grafting, setting, sowing, cutting, arboring, rocking, mounting, covering, fencing and removing of plants, herbes, seedes, fruites, [and] trees" for British Royalty – nowadays they hang out with Princess Kate and strew her with flowers.

Meanwhile TheMen’s Garden Club of Wethersfield performs the same gardening “misteries”, but has no monarchical cred.

But we could get that with the right label!

Think of the prestige!  Think of the public relations! Think of Pippa Middleton on our next calendar
