Bjorn is from my wifes families side. Her father is Vagn Predbjorn Jensen, who is a rather distiguished author in Denmark. There is some major debate as to what the "Pred" means, some saying "strong", and a few others that are hard to translate into english. Bjorn is scandinavian for bear. Predbjorn is my wifes middle name, and my daughter. It is also the name given to my bee business, Bjorn Apiaries.
My real name is Mike. And no sense killing that name any more than it already has been. I've also been called "The Frug(cooking skills after the chef, Steve Smith), Doc, the Stork (after my football days), and some other colorfull names not to be mentioned here, but those are people who have never shook my hand or actually have come to know me.
Self explanatory! Real name is Rob Koss. I have a standing offer to buy dinner for any of you should you travel through Mobile, AL (I live there) or New Orleans (I work there).
Just give me a few days notice!

beekeeper28 = bee keeper and my birthday is on the 28th day of the month. When I first joined I was in ahurry and so I just typed in the first thing that came to mind and intended togo back later and update my profile or chaneg my name, but never have.
My birth name is Tomas Lee Neal (no "h" so it has the spanish pronoucation)
my CB handle was bookworm when I was growing and I would ride w/ my trucker Dad (goathead) I was always reading a book as we traveled the roads.
I found that a local supermarket was having a sale on granulated surgar (limit 5). I got caught in the checkout lane with about 20 or 30 bags over the limit. (Always use the checkout lane with the newly-hired cashire).I got this tip from a well known beekeeper in the area that I happened to be mentoring with, so I decided to add the #2 to my user name out of respect. Ever since I've been labled as the notorious "sugar bandit of Madison county". I'm currently seeking counsleing for my little problem.
rarely does anyone ever actually call me Dee (and i'm not sure why) but its a short user name so thats why i went with it
my real name is Deanna Briggs so therefor for all of you who ask -- no i am not Dee Lusby (i do believe she always uses her last name) had i know there was a "Dee" user name here already i probably wouldnt have used it
anyway, have a good one, Dee

It's great knowing who some of you folks really are, especially your gender. I sometimes wonder if I'm responding in a post to a man or a woman and hate to say "she then wrote...." when it is a man and vice versa. Still there are some who haven't said one way or another on the gender issue. Are you unknowns gynandromorphs?
Jeez, haven't been to the Cafe du Monde in about twenty years. I miss going to that part of the world (DH is from that area), but he has no more family connections there, and we haven't been back to visit. Nothing beats a benet on a damp cool N O morning.
Sorry, I guess I am one of the gender andromorphs. Real name Matt McCarrell, real gender Male.
Systems Admin and Chemist. My workplace is exactly like the movie Office Space. I feel like Dilbert a lot and when I chose the handle I use I was still a lab rat. Now I moved up to computer geek, so I think that's good. Hence chemist (proffesion) bert (cartoon reference).
Now you know and like G.I. Joe used to say, knowing is half the battle.
My real name most of you already know is Gary. My daughter is Michelle Kristen I started calling her MIKI and it stuck, then I incorporated it into many passwords (old and unused now). My wife Sylvis is also a member she is TONI our sons name is Antony.
