As some of you have figured out I started out as Seag2425. Seag was the name of one of our cats.  He had sea green eyes so we shorten it to Seag, pronounced Sea then g. But he has passed away and that made me sad. The 2425, well that was an old street address of no importance.

Bees on the other hand make me happy so I needed something better. Then it hit me.

I am from the great state of Georgia and I am male.  :)

So GeorgiaBoy came to mind.

The first for my state and the second on how the bees make me feel young again even though I am now over 50.

Now you know.

I've been using Sweats62 since the lave 90's when I needed a call-sign for an on-line jet fighter simulator game.  I was sitting at the computer and while looking down I noticed I was about to fly a simulated combat mission in sweat pants.  There's the "Sweats" part.  The "62" came in when I tried using the call-sign for some other applications where the moniker "Sweats" had already been used.  I attached my year of birth and there you have it.

Opal is my real name. I was on the forums before but couldn't remember what my user name was so I decided to use my real name. I don't think I'll forget that! ;)

I have a lot of fun with history, military and family.  I belong to a Revolutionary War re enacting group representing the 42nd, the Royal Highland, Regiment of Foote (1776 re-created), I have a great deal of Scottish Highlands heritage (Campbell and MacDonald), and I live in the mountains.  So it is easy to remember.
Cruachan!

I changed an email address that I have had for years to BeeK instead of BK because I thought it was fitting.  I am new to this forum and checking out beekeeping.

Manwithgills was my first dial up internet screen name. It was from my scuba diving days while in the Army. The name has stuck and I use it pretty much for any forum I join.

Gona Kikbuty is another tag I have used for many years. Kind of a twist on a Cheech & Chong characters name.

Many years ago, back when I was accessing the Internet thru a Sega Saturn Netlink, I went by Echo or Echo72. Then I used various forms of my name and birth year (dee72, dee1972, etc). When I started a crafting blog for my knitting, crocheting and spinning I called it Diary of a Mad Crafter. I tried signing up for a knitting site using madcrafter, but it was taken. Since being a mom is something I love and cherish (8 kids), I settled on Madcraftermom and use that most everywhere now. :)

The Alewife was a woman who made beer in medieval time. The Alewyfe is a small fish that lives in Lake Michigan I believe.

I make beer and I consider myself to be a small fish in a big pond....therefore, Alewyfe seemed appropriate. I also liked the "olde englishy" style of the "f" in the spelling.  :)
