Mine was totally random.
The word whistle came up on the subtitles and I thought yep that's fine.

    Being an amateur genealogist helped me choose my user name.

    Being a former professional driver was why I picked mine.   Happy days long gone sadly.

    Best wishes.

    s = first initial
    doc = abbreviation/nickname of my surname
    94 = year of birth

    And there we have it!

    Hello every body I am called the Spiceman because of my interest in Herbs and Spices.

    Because I use them for my own well being and health.

    This is a subject I will one day discuss in depth.  Besides if I did I am not sure about how far I can explain their uses.  With out infringing the rules by SCOPE.

     I had this name for a long time.  Used by a lady from Holland and Barrett who coined the name.

    So it stuck.

    Since then use it as I have said for al my recipes see my posts.

    Take care

    Yes if you use DOB in passwords you are right there.

    Ignoring optional extra security measures is another.

    I chose mine because it had a certain ring to it and what it stands for? and is very appropriate meaning for our Government, and I reckon most of you will also agree why I chose it.

    G.A.Joke :D
    ⬇️
    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories. 

    You can see the video here.

    I have to point out in my own defence that my eldest daughter is a linguist. Even at school she passed 7 language GCSE's. Also it was my son and his friends at work who persuaded me to give 'World of Warcraft' a go many years ago. I had to find a name for my character and, being interested at the time in the peninsular wars (Duke of Wellington and all that) I intended to use one of the major battles.
    My daughter suggested Salamka as it was close to Salamanka. She didn't tell me any more than that. It was months later when a Hungarian young lady informed me that in her country a salamka was a small sausage.

    I guess there is always that risk that the dob on show isn't actually the real one. ;-)
