My username is the same on 99% of forums and is my real life nic-name and was first used by one of my early aquaculture mentors. We were collecting brood stock for his fish farm and were targeting some rare perch, grunters and fresh water sawfish in the Northern Territory. For every target fish collected, I managed to collect a Jardini Saratoga. My friend shouted out Togajoe and the nic has stuck for 30 years.

Well when I started beekeeping over 10 years ago people were amazed that I kept bees. It reminded me of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes when Ruth stated calling Idgie a bee charmer. That and the number 13 represents coming full circle, like a wedding band :)

Charis is from North Carolina and graduated from UNC. Ben is from West Virginia and is a proud hillbilly. She's just country enough to have agreed for the name of our apiary.

Sounds like a good combination there Tarheelbilly.

Now how about the real mystery?  What pray tell is a "Tarheel" in the first place!

My username is tried and true, "Just" because my second son was going to be named Justin and "5398" because that was my due date.  Neither of which stuck!  lol He was named Colin and he was born 3 weeks early.

When I was a child, my parents gave me a Snoopy stuffed animal. I immediately named it "Snoopy Daisy", although I don't remember why.  After that my parents started calling me Tina Daisy as a term of endearment.  It always makes me smile when I think of that.

Dixie Books was the name of my bookstore in Alabama. Soon after going into the book business I got on the internet and dixiebooks was the natural name to use for email and my URL (www.dixiebooks.com, which no longer exists).

I really do need to change it.
