i needed a name other than my blog name, and one that i could remember.  seemed like this would be a good time to use my real name....and most likely, i'll remember it :-)

i have to admit that using my real name, and seeing it pop up on the computer, is a little unsettling at first!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

when i was little, i couldn't pronounce my name (Matic) so, when i wanted to do something or...well something i was saying like "Mici wants to"...or something, my Brother (Gregor) was Agi :-D. so when it was time to get a nickname on internet/computer i didn't wanna be another "superman" or any other stupid nickname...went for Mici, although Mici is a female name, it's not used around here much but i know it is in austria and poland..it's really become rear around here, but present enough that come TRY (just try, never succed) making fun of my nick

My husband, buzzbee and my son, buzzbeejr were already members so I guess they kind of picked my name

I'm in the boring group of folks. Mom gave me a full name that my friends shortened.

I got my name because it's my real name.  I haven't met anyone else with the first name Sport, but there has to be another one out there.  I always explain how I got the name as "being born in the sixties."

hummingbird is on of many nicknames given to me by family and friends because it describes me.  Petite, nimble (used to be a competitive gymnast), complex and I LOVE sugar!  I'm always buzzing around the house doing a million projects at once, and I eat almost as much as I weight each day! haha.  I spelled it with an "e" because the traditional spelling is usually taken.  Hummingbirds are fascinating creatures, almost as fascinating as bees.

I might change my avatar, but for now I'll keep this one.  It's a mirror image of the face I give my husband when I he has the computer and I want to use it to post on bee forums!

My name is MrILoveTheAnts because that's the name I use almost everywhere. Along with bee keeping I also keep colonies of ants. Sure they don't produce honey but at least they don't sting... mostly.
I'm also on another forum about ants on EzBoard (which might be Yuku now or something since they got bought out).

WE have another member who loves ants, 'nepenthes'.  I don't know if he's posting right now, there was just a fire in his house and I think he lost all of his pets.  :(

I was apprehensive about this name for it could be scrutinized to describe me as a Big, Lazy, Sofa Lounging Redneck from the hills of Tennessee eating nothing but junk food and drinking poisonous beverages.
Only part of that describes me;
  I own two love seats instead of a sofa.
And my drink is either Water,Coffee,Milk or Tea.  ;)
