Not disclosing any info if you don't want but after some time posting on here just wondered how we all chose our forum names? I work in a film studio quite a bit so that where mine came from. But what about 50p, Hedgehog ... etc!

Mine is an easy one.  After years of car-ownership (25 to be precise!) I finally saw the light and got a van.  I'll never go back!

I chose Mr Hedgehog as my garden seems to be blighted with Hedgehogs ever since I found one “hoagie Carmichael” run over in the road with broken legs and brought him home got the Wilts wildlife trust to repair him and he has never left

And ever since then people have been dropping off injured Hedgehogs Mrs HH loves the little fellas and made me make the garden Hedgehog friendly

But I have lost count of the number of times I have fallen over one while walking up the garden path, its like tripping over a brick when they have been fatten up for release

 

Here is one of the little guys tonight having his dinner they use the cat flap

Was it you on the advert dropping the feather behind the pub window with a helicopter outside. Quote “you only fit double glazing once so fit the best - fit Everest”

I can never understand why I can remember crap like that but after a night down the pub I can’t remember the way homeEmbarrassed

My first name is Greg, I live in Australia (oze) and I have a Doberman (dobe) - the first Web forum I joined was for dog agility enthusiasts.

I couldn't be bothered making up a new Id for any subsequent forums, so I stuck with the first one (I can remember it most of the time).

Cant remember exactly what i was thinking when i typed in my user name. ( pretty sure its because of the " gansta rappa " Fifty Cent )

Obviously if i was in a European country i could have kept the name the same, but being in the UK it had to be Fifty Pence !!.

You can really shorten it down though. ( 50 )( isn't that right HH !! )

Mine is even more boring Kombi (And I was born in 57 too!)

While we are a bit off topic here, how about us all adding where we live (and what we think of it) as part of our sig?
