It's pretty simple really......you are what you eat!



Up until September 2007 I lived all around Maryland (at times not far away from Saltydad) and one of my favorite pastimes was attending the great bluegrass festivals held in the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains. Needless to say, one of the activities at your real down home festivals is trying out different types of the local liquors. If possible I would buy up a few quarts and take them home with me, for special occasions. Peach, apple, plum, cherry, and plain old clear were some of the many varieties I collected.

One such special occasion was the Stillwater Family Reunion, held in upstate New York by some good folks in a great band by the name of Railroad Earth. Since it was more intimate (only 150 people) than your average festival and consisting of close friends and families connected with the band, I took along what had become a rather large stash of different types of moonshine.



It was here I met the boys of Greensky Bluegrass, a band for which I still do promotion work on a strictly pro bono basis. I met them on Friday night, told them where my tent was, and said "Help yourself". And they did! We all stayed up until sunrise, with a quite spirited pickin' party around the campfire.

Their set was at 5:00 the next evening, and as they got ready to start playing they apologized for their still quite hungover condition, and then sent a big shout out to "Moonshine Mike, for his most gracious hospitality, and that fine cherry 'shine".

To that point I had made it 49 years without ever getting stuck with a nickname. But after that night I was officially 'Moonshiner'. Kinda like it, too.

Oh, yeah.......

Bananas Brindando Re: Explain your screen name.

I'm a fairly new banana fanatic, hence the abreviated name banfan. I sign off as Sigi, a nicname derived from my last name, that I acquired while in the USN back in the 60's...a name which has stuck ever since.

Well ,ease to explain ..
SoBe that is where I live ..
South Beach is a neighborhood in the city of Miami Beach, Florida, United States. It is the area south of Indian Creek and encompasses roughly the southernmost 23 blocks of the main barrier island that separates the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. This area was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed, starting in the 1910s, thanks to the development efforts of Carl G. Fisher, the Lummus Brothers, John S. Collins, and others. The area has gone through numerous man-made and natural changes over the years, including a booming regional economy, increased tourism, and the 1992 hurricane Andrew, which consequently destroyed much of the area.
note: "An explosion of Bananas grow is well watch and follow by city officials "

Miami Beach ,an incredible city, a city with a life and personality of its own. A city full of bohemian and passionate people ,a perfect place to live free and garden with full of ease..!
[IMG][/IMG]

and MUSA well we all know:
Musa (pronounced /ˈmjuːzə/)[1] is one of three genera in the family Musaceae; it includes bananas and plantains. There are over 50 species of Musa with a broad variety of uses. The word "banana" came via Portuguese or Spanish from a West African language (possibly Wolof) circa 1597 and has since found its way into most Western languages. The scientific name for the genus is similar to and possibly derived from the Arabic, Persian mawz/mauz (موز) or Turkish (muz) names for the fruit.


Though they grow as high as trees, banana and plantain plants are not woody and their apparent "stem" is just the bases of the huge leaf stalks. Thus they are technically gigantic herbs.

Musa species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Giant Leopard Moth and other Hypercompe species including H. albescens (only recorded on Musa), H. eridanus and H. icasia.

My mother was reading a book (I believe by Roger Kipplin?) about a little boy in India named Kim with special abilities when she was pregnant. When I came out, I got the name. Kim means Brave warrior--Mighty leader. Most people believe Kim is a girls name, not in my case.

It's nice they bring back old Threads to see if members respond to them. It's like a piece of nostalgia.

I'm glad you pointed that out Americans love to mess with the sex of names for example all the fallowing are boys names but if you ask the average person they would think you nuts thees are all the boys spellings

Joyce
Julie
Aaron
Cary
Gene
Lee
Leslie
Paddy
Robin
Reese
Tyler
Terry
Tony

thees are mostly girls names but are used as boy names too
Angel
Alexis
Ariel
Armani
Avery
Bailey
Dakota
Emerson
Harley
Jamie
Kennedy
London
Peyton
Shannon
Riley
Skylar
Thees are but a few examples so next time you read a name don't assume you know the sex of the individual that posses it you mite be wrong

Sorry this is a bit of a pet peav for me many people reticule thees individuals its not there fault and almost all of thees names are ancient in origin and what a extraordinary gift to give your child but the rich traditions of naming them with such prestigious and historic name many of which have belonged to some vary famous people
