Why "The Lentil"?

For those of you not familiar with the Hiscocks Family Newsletter (several billion of you I guess), the Family Newsletter started out under a range of alternative names - each issue had a different, witty (well it was supposed to be witty) title. Then, for some now lost reason, it evolved into "The Diddly", and remained so for a couple of years. However, on the birth of my youngest (currently) niece my nephew derived "The Lentil" from her given name, which is Eleanor Tilly. This seemmed rather clever for a (then) 9 year old, and as I was in mid issue production of the latest tome, I used it, and it stuck - so there you have it.
