P.S. James said to guess what his full name is. (No it doesn't involve Tim! Look to the Bible for his first and middle names. Obviously one of them is James!)
Is his first name 'King'?

Not King, but a good guess! Actually James is his first name. His middle name is a biggie in the Bible.

Even though I was the first Licia in the forum, that isn't my real name. It is a rather mixed up version of my first name, Alice, which I don't use. I was never able to get Alice as my user name so started using Licia and it worked. I even get mail now addressed that way. I must say it is nice to see the actual names of those in the forum.

I think we should be allowed to change our names when we turn 18 when we are our own selves and not what our parents wanted us to be....Just as long as the rule doesn't allow my son and daughter to change theirs I am starting a thread.

I don't need to know Goodweed's name, or Sushi's, or My Leg's Big (I have no idea where that came from either, but don't really care).

I just know the people here, in MHO, are great. And if we hide behind a bit of a facade, well, that is the wonder of the internet.

Again I understand your point, and anyone, I believe, is free to use their real names.

I may seem quixotic to cling to a user name, but I kinda like the anonymity.

Just auntdot's opinion.

Take care.
You've expressed it for me Aunt Dot..I couldn't think of the right words to say pretty much what you've said.

I use my own real name for a simple reason .... I can't remember anything else! I've tried a variety of nomes de cuisine but just can't remember them. Luckily our staff here did consolidate them all. So now I'm just me.
