Ok, I'll bite.... My 'screen' name is one that I use on most forums and email services, I live in the town of FAIRport (in upstate NY) (FYI, there's a CSX main line going right through the center of my town and has LOTS of train traffic including AMTRAK) and the digits 28 are both the DAY of my birthday AND my house number.  Something I started using some years ago on forums and email services and it's stuck.  FYI, my avatar (the blue service star) is for my son who is in the USAF and currently deployed 'overseas'.  For his safety I'm not going to say where or for how long.

Maybe it's an alias, and your name is really George J or George M! :ph34r:

Hello. My forum name NYP2NFL01 represents the first time I traveled from New York Penn Station to Niagara Falls, NY in 2001. I really love this forum. I didn't know it existed until just a month ago.

Peter - my first name
K - my last initial
SFO - the airport code for San Francisco - where i used to live and worked (at the airport) and still feels like home

Or you could just say it's your first name and airport code, since KSFO is the San Fran ICAO designator.

The airport I used to work at is in my username also. HRT then, now ORD.

I rescue dogs. While I'm not as active as I used to be, I still have three living with me and another 15 I pay to be boarded.

Two of my babies have passed away in the past two months.

When my former wife and I lived in the Texas Hill Country, we rescued everything the local Humane Society sent our way: dogs, cats, goats, horses, cows, mini horses, etc.

Those of us that make there career in theater have long known that the world is held together with Gaff tape ( A Higher quality Duck tape). Now in this group all we are concerned with is all the foaming we do is getting on the train window blurring our views.

Gaff tape is the best!! I've only worked theatre in high school and community theatre in college and had forgotten about the wonders of Gaff tape. Bravo for the reminder. Now if it would come in pink, that would be perfection! Ha.


Pink, No Problem, I seem to remember there are 48 different colors. Went and got a link to a Pro source. http://www.protapes....ms/ProGaff.aspx Did  not count but the stock less than 48, but they do include FL Pink. among their choices.
