I love to dive as well!

As people are also explaining their titles and sigs, here goes.

My title, Banana Coloured, should be self-evident. The Lorax itself is yellow, and I myself am green. (pun, pun, bad pun...)

My sig is a quote from Dr. Seuss' Lorax, and also a link to the blog of the same name, which is about the plants and trees of Ecuador.

I tried so many names but they'd been taken so I just reverse my last name and first name but cut it short.

Well, my name is Zac, I live in North Carolina at the moment. I Suppose I could change it to Zac in Texas when I get back out there, but I would lose all of the things with this Screen name, so I won't change it.

Well it's make roughly $30-80 an hour (usually averages around $60) for two weeks straight (generally a bathroom in labor is around $3000-5000) and then not know when your next job is if you don't have anything lined up, or make $40-60 an hour with absolute work no matter where you live and get 1.5-2.5 for holiday and overtime pay. Going into nursing!!!

Man guys, this thread just keeps going. This is the best one I've ever started. Thanx again for all the replies. Come on Chris. I may just have to make up something. Maybe he's lost in his jungle.

Drummer Re: Explain your screen name.

Well here is my screen name that I use here.I was working in the Record Biz in the 80's and, after asking my grandmothers neighbor that I needed a job where he worked.He asked me why I wanted a job there so I told him I loved listening to local rock and roll with the bands that are playing at the local club's out here in Southern California and love the music biz.So that is why I wanted to work there because I could get all the music that bands I listened to.I told him so he hired me.Now his business was from New York and all he could remember my name was to call me SOCALROCKER.So the name stuck with me for many years after that because I am still listening to ROCK N ROLL music.

SOCALROCKER aka Mitch
