    I hope you are recovered. LitNet has not.

    In honor of Lake Superior State University, I nominate "Lake Superior". Having grown up near the shores of Lake Michigan, I'd like to point out that Michigan-Huron is now considered the largest fresh water lake in the world. The notion that it is two separate lakes is belied by the fact that the Michigan and Huron are separated by a narrow strait -- not a river. They are the same lake.

    I suggest that from now on the Northwesternmost of the Great Lakes be called "Lake Inferior".

    Nice to "see" you well, Auntie and thanks for the list! As a foreigner I canīt comment much on it, but number 3 and 4 and variants are classics in Portuguese too!
