* There is a charming bucolic town called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunnythorpe Bunnythorpe]] on the North Island of UsefulNotes/NewZealand, about 8 kilometers northwest of Palmerston North (itself about 130 kilometers northeast of Wellington). The town is famous for being the original home of a company that got started as a factory turning milk from local dairies into baby formula (using the ludicrously cute tagline that the formula "builds bonnie babies"). The name of this company, intended to recall the Greek word for milk, was called Glaxo. Yes, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GlaxoSmithKline that]]'' Glaxo.
