Hey!  Just used my name. I tend to not get so confused this way!

well, we had a tent rental company for 20 years -A Shaded Affair-weddings, festivals, special events.
(man did we ever get odd calls once in a while though....lamp shades, window blinds and ahem  :cheesy: escort services!)  but it was a neat name we didn't want to lose, nor our website.

So when we had to close up shop and focused more on the farm (when not at regular day job now) changed a few letters for our lumber, maple syrup, honey, produce and poultry breeding to become A Shaded Acre.

In marketing, starting company names with numbers or "A" puts you at the front in advertising alpha lists.

sooo, not terribly inventive from forum standpoint, but it works.

I like the story of Jabez in the bible who was not born into the best of situation but prayed to be kept from evil and to be blessed by God. Icannot think of a better way to live!

G'day all,

  I am from Darwin Australia & am so looking forward to using this Forum. I am a relatively new beekeeper & still have lots to learn.

I use the Name "FishermanAllen"as I am a fishing fanatic & always have been. In fact people have called me FishermanAllen for years as I am also a part time Fishing guide for tourists in the Top End of Australia. :wink:

Mother Nature and I are the best of friends I hang out with her almost every day......."Life Is Good"

I joined the internet community about a year before AOL got started.  At that time, it asked for your name, I could not put a space so I entered MarkCase.  When AOL started, I had the same issue so I used MarkCase.  Now, I use MarkCase for any online identity.  Yea, not real original, but it shows how long I've been using the internet!

A long time ago, when I was a MUCH younger man in the military, I had a hard time recognizing danger. (some said I had a death wish) A young officer told me that if I didn't learn a little fear I would "find God the hard way".  "Godfinder stuck and became my radio call sign for a few years.
"Never confuse 'Nice' and 'kind';

There are many kind men in the world, but there is no such thing as a 'Nice Guy'.

This.... takes effort!"    The Godfinder

My member name is just my blog name. Hubs and I moved from a fast paced coastal city to the slow paced country life. It's not mediocre, it's lovely, but we like to joke about the differences.  :cheesy:

After I found the site, and decided to join I just made a name correlating to the location of my farm in Tennessee.  If you ever have the opportunity to visit Hickory Valley (Sparta) TN, you will find a piece of heaven on earth.  :happy:
