Really?  I thought it stood for "Finished Room Over Garage."  Guess I've
been looking at homes too much of late.

Re Frank Whigham's query:  I always thought that the folk song
"Froggie's Come a Courtin," which is still pretty much standard in
beginning music courses, dated from the Alencon courtship.

There is web site "All About Frogs" (Really!!) which provides a series
of legends about how the French came to be called frogs.  It includes
the story about Elizabeth, as well as variations of the story I'm
familiar with, that the frog was the symbol of Clovis I and eventually
evolved into the fleur-de-lis.

Frank Whigham asks, "Do we know if the abusive use of the term "frog"
for the French has anything to do with Elizabeth I's nickname for her
French suitor Alen
