Hello Adam,

Let me rectify that by not similarly ignoring you.

See?

All of three seconds of my time...

Yeah baby!

:-)

Later.

So I have not been ignoring you.

She's fine now, by the way.
Hello Dann,

Good news!

Later.

It is a fake name. My real name is Stuart Adams Hair, Jr. To prevent confusion, my parents did not want call me by some variation of Stuart. And it is weird to call someone Adams. Thus they called me Adam.

By the way, I doubt Roger's real name is Roger, but at least the name Roger can be used on public sites.

My middle son's name is Bronze.
His older brother Ian is about a year older, and he was not very good at saying the word 'Bronze' when Bronze was a baby.
Ian sort of said 'Baaab' when he wanted to talk to Bronze.
So Bronze's nickname is Bob.

You may have noticed that there are 2 of the letter 'N' in my name Dann.
This was due to a mistake.
The doctor asked my mother what my name was to be.
She said:
"D-A-N-N..."
because she was thinking of 'Danny'
but then she remembered she wanted it to be 'Daniel' so she added:
"-I-E-L'
So my legal name has two 'N's in it instead of one.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
