TLTURBO - mine is pretty simple. TL are my initials and I have owned, played with or raced hot cars and boats since I was a teen ager back in the muscle car era. Owned way too many corvettes and back about 1990 I had a young boy and the vette wasn't big enough so I bought a 1987 TURBO Buick Grand National. I soon discovered that with a few mods, there wasn't much on the street that could keep up with it and this was my screen name on the Turbo Buick boards so I use it other places. Also, avitar is a representation of the car. I'm on my 2nd GN and love them. They are a turbocharged 6 cylinder an will tear up a new vette, viper, cobra, etc.

HENCE my license plate.

Not to hijack, but Jacksonville? Scuba? Surely we've met....

I'm going to be organizing a trip to New Smyrna to dive the Mindanao in August. PM me if you're interested.

We couldn't buy her but the farmer sold us a heifer from her that had the same markings. After aquiring some purebreds we were hooked. We now have several registered "Belted Galloways" but that first cow that isn't even purebred will live out her life here with us.

I think it's pretty cool that Bananas.org had the dancing banana on the COW smilie available!

No problem. If you want some fun, google your name and see how many pages it takes to get your personal info.

Mine used to be 3 pages in, but now it's buried a bit deeper.

Sorry to get topic off on cars. HA HA

Vette was too small for 2 adults and a kid so traded it on a van and I got the GN as consolation for giving up the vette.

6 cyl, 231 cubes, 412 hp and 548 ftlb at 19 lbs boost and 93 octane. Over 500 hp on C-16 and 25 lbs boost. 10.80's at 126.

Hiya Re: Explain your screen name.

Hi Everybody!
When I was 6 or 7yrs old, My teacher gave me a packet of snapdragon seeds to plant. I planted them in front of our apartment bldg in the worst looking soil you can imagine! I remember the women around there snickering and saying they'll never grow there. Being a child I beleived they would grow! I watered them faithfully, and protected them like a sentry!
Even had little sticks and rocks around them like a fortress! Guess what?
They grew very beautifully! Neighbors said "Girl you have magic green fingers!"
That was the start of gardening! And I never stopped!!
Don't know why I didnt go to school for horticulture!
Been seriously thinking about it here lately!!

sandy0225 is pretty easily explained, my sister told me when the internet was new to us that everyone just used their first name and first four numbers of their birthdate for a username on everything.
Northern Tropics-the name of my business-is also pretty easy. But the cool part is that it came to me in a dream. Everyone thinks it's a tanning salon at the bank though!
