Yes, I started THINKING about it on my last trip to Maine, last week.

Yes, in the past it had briefly crossed my mind & I think I kind of assumed that it had to do with ‘MAIN’ — in some form.

As you can see from the image above that there are NOW 3 theories. I, however, favor #2 — the French connection.

What do YOU think?

I am GLAD I found the Wikipedia entry. Otherwise I would have wasted my time putting that list together — when I do have other things to do.
