mojo    Posted 09-27-2004 at 05:48:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
I just did a search in ask jeeves what mojo was, I had no idea it had to do with magic and casting spells! I've wondered ever since a post awhile back that said I had my mojo working, and then theres the Austin Powers movie.
I've been mojo since the days of C.B. radios, the handle just came to me without any thought as to it might be a real word. I'm from Missouri (mo) and live near St Jo (jo). My real name, Mike, is REALLY common, there are 3 of us within 30 miles of each other with the same first and last names (thankfully none are bank robbers or anything!), we drive the ASCS office nuts!
How did you folks get your webnames? I guess I'll keep mine cause it's easy to type.

Hal/WA    Posted 09-27-2004 at 21:30:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hal has been my nickname most of my life--lots of people only know me as Hal. I added my state designation because there have been a couple of other Hals that posted in YT and I think it is sometimes useful to give my general location. I live in Eastern Washington, South of Spokane and only a few miles from Idaho.

I also am a little lazy! Hal/WA is about as short and easy a handle as I could come up with.

I got my name from a bunch of N-Tractor guys. They thought I looked like Willie Nelson with my Pony Tail and since I sold so many N-Tractor parts for a while the N was added. Just changed the spelling to Willy-N but allways sign off with my real name. Mark H.

Noah Werka    Posted 09-27-2004 at 16:24:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
My name comes from my grandfather. His name was Noah Werkalotski. When he come over from the old country (Poland), he shortened it to Werka to make it easier to fill out immigration and unemployment forms.

From that day on it was known as "Mighty Mouse"!!

Curiousity is getting me, I'd love to see a picture of ~Lenore and Seahag! But then again, since she's without her lovely and her lucious, and I can picture a seahag, maybe I wouldn't!LOL

Maggie/TX    Posted 09-27-2004 at 09:32:13       [Reply]  [No Email]
My grandmother's name was Maggie and I've always liked it. My real first name is less common and I live in a small town, so I wanted to be a little more incognito.

Peanut    Posted 09-27-2004 at 09:11:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
My nickname comes from an unnatural hankering for boiled peanuts. I just love to eat them. And ... some people think they are kind of nasty so I have a lot of fun asking why they don't like a peanut that tastes like someone sucked all the salt off the shell and put the peanut back in the bag. Oh well - that means more peanuts for me.

sdg    Posted 09-27-2004 at 08:48:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Mine is real boring, My intials. My first name is NOT common at all in fact I've only heard it before when some one is calling me. With that being said, if I ever got in trouble growing up I couldn't say "it was the the other so and so".'s just easier going by my intails and staying out of trouble.

I too am in Missouri but didnt want to use my name I used to use in my chatting days(Birdie) so I just went with my home state and real first name.I am in Columbia

Originally ~Lovely Luscious Lenore when I was a part of a rock & roll radio disk jockey team.
Poppa Bop & Lovely Luscious Lenore coming to you with your favorite music!
It got shortened to ~Lovely Lenore and here I just got lazy and became "just plain ~Lenore" still taking requests for your favorite songs when I can!

Alias    Posted 09-27-2004 at 06:45:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
When I first checked out this site I noticed that save for a few, everyone was using an alias. So, I decided that I would take the name Alias in order that everyone would know it is bogus.

Of course, I always sign off with my initials which are gfp. Which stands for
George Farrell Putnam

New-Gen    Posted 09-27-2004 at 06:08:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
On August 30, 1960 John Deere unveiled what they called the "New Generation of Power' at an event known as Deere Day in Dallas. Somewhere around that date I started first grade, and not too long after that one of those new tractors showed up at out farm, so I grew up with them,spending a good part of my life driving, hauling, amd working on those old workhorses.
When I got first into the internet thing it was on tractor sites, and by then the term had been abreviated to New-Gen..
And my response to your question reveals another of my traits--the ability to answer a simple question with a longwinded sometimes irrelevant tale!

deadcarp    Posted 09-27-2004 at 05:59:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
well mine started from my grandkids but i'm growing into it. heh heh. well then a couple years ago "blue eyes from hawaii" asked what animal we resemble and i said a dead carp floating on a stagnant pond with 1 eye defiantly open. that image fits when i'm stiff in the morning.

btw, we had a place on olive st in st joe til we recently sold it. i remember you guys had like 10-ft tall corn there. and some kinda crop that they tied the heads together like a growing bundle of short corn. ?:)

mojo    Posted 09-27-2004 at 06:03:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've really always wondered where DeadCarp came from! What a picture! You used to be Old Warrior didn't you?

It might be sorghum that you remember, but that's just a guess.

deadcarp    Posted 09-27-2004 at 06:10:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
yeah, i sorta got ousted as old warrior a couple places (i know people who died for things like free speech - so not too patient with 11th commandments) but this is a less military title. :)

Nothing special here!

Chad K, formerly known as Joe Dirt

mojo    Posted 09-27-2004 at 05:59:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
I liked the name Joe Dirt, but I pictured David Spade every time you posted!LOL Why did you change?

Chad K    Posted 09-27-2004 at 11:30:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
No particular reason really. I just decided to go by my real name. Boring, I know, but what the heck. If the shoe fits....

Donna from Mo    Posted 09-27-2004 at 06:54:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I don't think an explanation is necessary for me. The first time or two I posted here, I just used "Donna". Then someone suggested I add something to it, since there were other Donnas posting and lurking. Being the sort to listen to sound advice, I then added "from Mo".

Doc    Posted 09-27-2004 at 07:08:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
Doc is a nickname I got when I had a digital photo repair business going for a while as a hobby. "Photo Doc"

Well as a kid I grew up by Lake Erie and was always in the water or on a boat, I live on a private lake and I guess the same goes for here.A water baby....sail boats...also the old man always called me the Old Hag

Grove r    Posted 09-27-2004 at 17:11:07       [Reply]  [No Email]
Have stated this several times before when this issue came up, but, here it is again; "Grove" is the english translation of my last name from Norwiegien..the small "r" can be taken two ways, the norse pronunciation with a very slight "r" sound at the end, or you can say it is the first letter of my first name...or...just say Grover, and be done with it!!!!! have a gooder, R.E.L. [just my initials]......P.S. would realy like to know what the "S" stands for, sdg....
