A little note about pronunciation...
A few questions this week re how I pronounce my name. The official version is "duCHENNE". But until about 7 years ago it was always DOOchen. Then my brother married an Italian girl and their first son has an Italian name, which sounds a bit funny beside DOOchen but, with duCHENNE, could well suggest a healthy future as a celebrity chef, cellist or conductor. So now you know.
