My full name is, William Joseph Clemens. As a child I was called "Billy Joe". As I grew, some called me the same, some called me "Bill", some, "Beegh", some "BJ". The most common one used was, "Bill". Once I learned what "Bills" were, I started to develop a dislike for that diminutive. There were also more than 7 in my immediate family whose first names were also, William. I like my middle name best, and began using it more, now the only one who calls me by "Bill", is my former spouse.  :evil:

I have been on the internet since 1998, and except for a couple of very early exceptions, I am dealhound nearly everywhere I frequent.  I chose dealhound for the fairly obvious reason that I love to hunt down a great deal.  The internet is a great tool for that, whether in looking for the deal on the internet, or researching product information.

Well... most of my former clientelle were Hispanic, and I was always respectfully called "Meestar Teem," for "Mister Tim." Wherever I was, it seemed, almost invariably someone would come up to me or point me out as such, and it pretty much made the name stick to one degree or another.

Besides... "Mr. T" was already taken.  :-D

Well, my mom gave me the nickname tigerlily because she likes the flower, and because I'm a tiger on the soccer field and a lily off of it...lol. My parents often remark that I always look like a tiger stalking it's prey when I play...wow, I rhymed!

When I first saw your username, I thought you were a Brit (British)  :)

My pal uses this name to refer to anyone that thinks they are important. I get a kick out of it and have used it in a forum I am a member of. I has been good to me and hopefully the luck will carry over into beekeeping.

About 3 hours from here.  :)

If you're ever in Lincoln or Omaha, I'm a short drive from either.

for several years I worked on certified organic farms, then as a produce manager I tried to support local organic farmers by buying their yummy foodies. Now as a mommy I shop and buy organic when ever I can. Organic is good, I am a girl, and I am 37...soon to be 38. So there you have it. :roll:
