    As you may have guessed its because I'm Swedish. Grew up in the UK and Swede was my nickname at school. Guess it kinda stuck - left school 10 years ago and friends still call me Swede.

    Ok, so maybe I lack imagination, but mine was actually the Captcha code I had to type to register!

    I run a personal finance blog called Gather Little by Little, GLBL for short. My pen name over there is glblguy, so I just started using it to be consistent :)

    Ok, my username is quite easy to decipher...I picked this name for two reasons!
    The first being that I love Jimmy Buffett(if you haven't guessed by now)-well the name of his band is the Coral reefer Band!
    secondly, is the fact that I love Coral reefs, and nope don't like "reefer" hahaha-LMAO did it twice and never did anything for me back in high school!
    So, I now save my brain cells to help others here on 3reef!!!!

    No guys its more like "pull you pants up cause it's getting pretty deep in here" LOL



    I always like to tell this story, I have had my screen name since the first time I logged into AOL back in 94.

    I had a dog, my favorite, who liked to run through the fields of tall grass. Only thing was he didn't run in the usual way. He would spring up in the air and cover about 8 or 10 feet with every spring, just like a Gazelle does when its running. It was the funniest thing you have ever seen. So Gazog comes form Gazelle-Gaz and Dog-og.

    Unfortunately we had to Finlay put him down last February, but that old mutt lived for 2 weeks shy or 16 years!

    I picked up my name on Americas Army just like you missionsix66. The 007 came into play after kicking your butt some many times (lol kinda a s-agent).

    ok, so i fudged a little bit. learning and memory retention happens better when someone researches and learns on their own, but a little boost everynow and then helps. hopefully with my years of experience everyone on here will prosper.
