    Yes, plain “bubbler” means water fountain, at least in New England, but if you google “garden hose bubbler”, you get dozens of low-flow sprinklers—and exactly one water fountain that attaches to a garden hose, and which is labeled “vintage”.

    “Dune” was originally published in “Analog” as two serials, “Dune World” in three parts (the usual number at that time) and, a few months later, “Prophet of Dune” in five parts. The division was where, after the assassination, Paul and Jessica find themselves alone in the desert.

    And the plan now is to have “Dune, part 3” covering the novel “Dune Messiah”. There are more novels, but they take place a generation or more later, so this should be the end of this set of movies.

    There was a degree of hyperlocal dialect at Medomak Camp for Boys in Washington, ME, (still in business, but “Medomak Family Camp” today) when I went there 1957–1963, with words I never heard elsewhere even though I lived only about 30 miles away at the time.

    GUNTY: Baggage, impedimenta, “stuff”.WAYSIDE: Latrine.

    Yeah, I’ve got Troy and Brooklyn, NY, Chicago, Germany, Maine (but not the coastal “Bert and I” accent), Oxbridge, Morris County, NJ, and years of experience in Opera and Renaissance faires pushing and tugging on my personal flavor of English.

    We had a bubbler that interposed between the outdoor tap and the garden hose in 1950s Maine. But the word seems to have changed meaning to a sort of low-flow sprinkler head for gardens.

    Milkshake, Shake, Frappe, Cabinet. (“Cabinet” is in Rhode Island.)

    Or, in a tiny number of towns in New Jersey, “Sloppy Joe”, in spite of “Sloppy Joe” meaning something completely different everywhere else in the US.

    Well, that one has been going on since the Middle Ages, and in both directions. A venomous snake used to be “a nadder”.

    Actually, Rome allowed several different sorts of marriage. One of them was indissoluble,
