    I've got 3 kids and "you kids better settle down and GoToSleep" is what I have to holler up the stairs at them every night. ;)




    Jwin, I don't know if you're a NASCAR fan but if you was the F-22 flyover at the start of last night's race, that was a few of the guys from my unit (and hence my avatar).

    why are you, who you are, great question Joseph
    Triplemom - you only have yourself to blame for the below.

    lifes experiences shape us into becoming the people we are
    key moments in life have the greatest influence in who we are
    a series of events , create memories, our reactions in relationship to those memories
    govern our future actions , thus we adapt throughout our lives and are thus better equiped to handle repeat episodes of previous experiences

    thus I am, who I am , simply because my life has made me who I am
    the older you get, the more of life experiences, the good and the bad, you accumulate
    and this causes change so who you are now, may in many cases be different to who you where 10 years ago

    my user name is Steve Wright, simply because its the same as my real name
    and I have never felt the need to hide behind an artificial identity
    I am who I am, and would not want to be anyone else

    lol. Well um. Blue Falcon is a military term. Started out in the Navy. To be "True Blue" was a compliment. When the Army took it over Blue Falcon stood for "buddy F***er". In example if your buddies were at the barracks cleaning up, and you got out of having to do any work, they might joke around and call you a blue falcon. Now, in the Marine Corps, it's most commonly used as a friendly joke or nickname. It was my call sign (radio handle) in Iraq. In true bravo foxtrot form. Caw Caw!!!! ;D

    Mine is a combination of my work. I started my own photography business, A New Perspective, thus the anp. And I had a summer job at a place called Goin' Postal, thus the gp.

    Mine came from when I used to work at a vets office as a tech some yrs ago. A client for the longest time thought my name was john...then some how it turned into johnny kat(yes like the litter lol) as a joke but has kinda stuck over the years..and I threw in my hockey number 12...hence the Jkat21....
