Bovina or Boniva

For the first time that I can ever recall, Bovina got confused with the well know osteoporosis drug hawked by Sally Field - Boniva. I was at a conference today wearing my Bovina Town Historian hat, along with an id badge for the conference with my name and affiliation. I didn't notice anything at first, but a colleague pointed out that something looked odd and sure enough, I was listed as the town historian for the Town of Boniva! Bovina gets mispronounced frequently (see my blog entry for April 24, 2009) but rarely misspelled. But given these two words have all the same letters, it was only a matter of time.

Ok, just something silly for the day. And here's the town emblem showing the right way to spell Bovina!
