"The Sedgefield" has a nice ring, doncha think?

I learned today that there was some vote to determine the new 7 wonders of the world. I was not asked to participate, but only like a 100 million other peeps did. How did this slip past my radar? Democracy ruled that the following are the top 7 wonders to behold:

Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer

Peru's Machu Picchu

Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid

the Great Wall of China

Jordan's Petra

the Colosseum in Rome

India's Taj Mahal

I would like to amend this list and add, my house!

Okay, so Rhett and I have had a running joke since the KY Derby. It kinda ties into the whole wonders of the world / notable landmarks so I'll explain. This year a horse named Sedgefield ran in the Derby. We got to talking about how Sedgefield sounded like the name of an English estate in the Moors. Then a synapsis fired into an idea that we should name our house a really pretentious sounding name. With no one in the car to edit that idea, it then evolved into a plan to bum rush the P-town 'chamber of recognizing places of importances.' Not sure who in fact is responsible for that task, further research will need to be conducted, but I digress. We would lobby to have our newly named house, complete with an appropriate plaque of brass with aged patina, as a P-town landmark. Groundless and unjustified of course, we just think that by naming our house, it would lend an air of authenticity and validity to our requet to make it a P-town landmark. People who come into town can be given directions like: you turn left one house past the Sedgefield." It would be funny.

We're taking suggestions for names.
