Well for the non-afrikaans people here. Net - Just and Ek - me. And that is who and what I am just me. Like it don't like it that's what you get .
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.

And I never knew this hey.

I wrote a story about a chap called Xavier Moobox. I see people dont use their own names on forums. I dont really know why but thought it's the way it's meant to be so I asked and Xavier reckoned it would be OK for me to be Moobox.

You're serious? With the surreptitious wit that you often display, I'm quite taken aback at your simplistic alias, SJ. (Then again, I should talk. :roll: :wink: ) I always thought you rhymed with Stump-a-Barney. :lol: You get a big, gold stamp of an award for that alias, SJ. :clap: :clap:

You had to ask your fictional character for permission? :shock: I get it - you're a humble groan-box, I suppose? :lol: Love the name, and now that I know its origins, will never forget the link. :clap: :clap:

I love squirrels :)
I also use the alias "squirrel"on other sites, but when I signed up here it was taken, so I added the "asc" - abbreviation for our website - AmberSkyCreations.

Nice one, PK. :clap: :clap: However, we haven't seen your sly side (yet), I believe. :wink:

Squirrel_asc, I love squirrels too; the cutest rodents. :dance: We rescued a baby one at Shingwedzi once and I'll never forget how magical it was to hold the little dear in the palm of my hands.

Mine is really quite simple. My parents (both botanists) named me Melissa after the genus Melissa and Lemon balm is the common name of Melissa officinalis - the most widely known species in the genus.
