I like woodworking and a friend always called me woody. He had a nick name for everyone.
Woody was taken on the first forum I joined so I went with woodey.

well... because i was a Mechanic since I was 14 years old.. started working for a john deere dealership putting bicycles, lawn mowers, and snow mobiles together, and also worked for a gas station repairing tires back in 1978.. so it seemed appropriate.  ;)

My name originated during my senior year of high school.  Trying to figure out a unique email account name that I could easily remember, but one that 's meaning would only be known to myself.  I always get crazy looks when asked for my e-mail address.  Each part has a meaning and at the time, they were some of the most important things to me.  They weren't assembled in order of most important to least, but in an order that could fairly easily flow when spoken.  Here is the break down: ad-kota-ha-jes-ban

ad - stands for adrenalin.  I raced atv's then and couldn't imagine (and still can't) living without that insane rush of adrenalin.
kota - stands for Dakota.  I had a black lab then that was my baby.
ha - stands for Halo.  My girlfriend, which is now my wife, and friends used to spend countless nights and hours playing Halo.  First person shooter for the original x-box.  We truly had an enormous amount of fun and countless memories from those nights/days spent playing.
jess - stands for Jessica.  We started dating my junior, her freshman, year of high school and have been together ever since.  We have been blessed with two boys.  One is almost 7 and our youngest is 3 months old.  Our journey, thus far, in life has been rough at times and smooth as glass other times.  Couldn't imagine being without her.
ban - stands for Banshee.  In 2003, my dream was to own a brand new Yamaha Banshee 350.  I got my first job working at Food Lion and bought my first atv.  Black and red plastic and that baby would absolutely fly. 

It is a peculiar name, but I use it for most online user names and the like.  It is never ever taken.  ;)

Hi! Bobanda is my member name here and on GardenWeb because I grew up having SO many Amanda's in my classes and people always liked to sing that "Manda, Manda, Bobanda, Fe-Fi-Fo-Fanda" song!   :-D

Kalu Yala is the company I work for in Panama Central America and Meg is my nickname. I used Kalu Yala in hopes that once I get my hive(s) started others in the company that get involved will also use the forum to answer questions!

I'm excited to be a new member!

My last name is Williams. When I lived in Mexico, the locals called me Willie as they seemed to have a hard time saying Curtis. They invariably pronounced it 'Coors', like the beer. So here I am, me llamo Willie.

The community we live has a historic farm area named Peckerwood. Ever since I was young the area has been referred to by that name.

Guess I have to make a post within 2 weeks of joining or I'll be tossed out, so here goes;
My username is the same as my email, when trying to think of an email I'd remember, I used the model # of an old Cat I had bought off my uncles. Then I started getting too much spam, so changed the ending 'a' to a 'b' and here I am.

I spent the majority of my adult life as a sapper -- a combat engineer -- in the US Army.

Sapper Steel! was the motto of the last engineer battalion in which I served, the 2nd Engineer Battalion, divisional, mechanized, which used to be the engineer battalion organic to the 2ID (that should give you a hint about how old I am, since divisions no longer have an organic engineer battalion).

Thanks,

Sap

A member of our bee club calls himself Bob the Bee Man.  I settled for the Bee Guy.  I chose BeeGuyDon because while there aren't any others in my club that call themselves the bee guy, I figured in here there might be.  I don't really know enough yet to be "The Bee Guy" but I will someday and I didn't want it to be taken.

The current handle is use is Variable or Var1abl3 if Variable is not available. I started using it when I was learning a bit of php coding. $Variables are used a lot in php with sql for websites and I just thought it would be a good username. Then after I watched Clear and Present Danger with Harrison Ford and heard the guy using the same handle it just kinda stuck....
I guess it could mean just about anything......
I want to beelieve.
