    When registering I tried several, but they were already taken. Finally I looked over at my spinach smoothie and decided that I'd go by the name of "Spinach". I did it more as a joke to see if it was taken. When it wasn't, I went with it.

    I also have watched a lot of Popeye in my lifetime. Spinach is special. LOL!

    it's my real name, but I originally registered as katie which is one of my emails, we used to be able to change our public name and webmaster stopped that long ago, I guess we changed too much and people didn't know who we were. So now who you register as is your permanent id.

    I was playing around with a very powerful neodymium magnet while I was registering.

    I am a Southern Baptist Preacher, although I wish I would have taken SBCPastor. Well, too late for that.

    Well,
    At the risk of wearing out the subject, (which isn't my intention) Long before either of us knew of this board and still today I've always considered myself to be a luckyman to have been married to Gayla. :love2:

    Mine is my nickname from my high school football team. Everyone was a "dog", the "web" is part of my last name. There was T Dog, K Dog, Snot Dog, etc...

    Mine is the name of the most beautiful city on the St John's River and seat of Putnam County in which I live, in the Great State of Florida, with the age that I was when I joined BB the second time. I did join many years back with another ID (my real whole name).

    Jacksonville can't hold a candle to Palatka. :tongue3: :tongue3: [​IMG]Ouch!!! Those people up there are just plain mean. :laugh:

    One of my hobbies is astronomy, (not astrology) and the name Saturn came to mind. It had been taken, so I just added a planet. I do not know how many messages and posts I have gotten wanting to know if I practiced astrology or worshiped the planets.
