What’s in a name?  
 
Why “The Millipede”? When Simon was a youngster he would often find himself on long car journeys with his older brother and their dad. To keep them occupied, they used to play a game called “Legs”.  
 
This involved spotting pubs on your own side of the car and counting the number of legs indicated by the name. So, for instance, “The King’s Arms” would score two, as Kings usually have two legs. “The Coach and Horses” would score ten, assuming two horses and a coachman.
