I've been popping vitamins and talking about natuarl remedies for 20 plus years to my friends. One day a guy I work with said... ask "the Chemist" and it stuck , then the internet email became a need.... Born in 61. Thought it sounded better than boyblunder.

So if brokenknee had no insurance would he be brokenwallet or just Broke for short? Nice zipper man

ok...James Calvin is my first and middle name. When I started up my business, I needed a name. I wanted something a little different than the average for around here like "Joe's Framing" or "Fred's Painting". I asked everyone for some help to come up with it and waited for as long as I could before out of frustration I gave up and called it what my dad nicknamed me, JCalvin.

Now, the reason for the post was because I couldn't remember what my screen name was, so I posted and read it.

Nick name given to me from the team coach of my junior high school basketball team back in 1968. And has stayed with me ever since. Except for the speed . I,m working on gaining it back when I retire with the first tricked out MR MOBILTY complete with WHEELIE BARS.

When I speak, other than my mouth I don't move any facial muscles. Most likely anyone under the age of 40 never heard of Clutch Cargo.
Actually, my father gave me the nickname based on the cartoon in the '60s when I was four.

I wishSpeedy Petey could explain his user name.

All I can come up with is that he wires fast and his name is Pete.

Micromind.....Smallest brain on the planet!

Seriously though, I've spent a pretty fair amount of time around motors, generators, and controls. Some of this stuff gets a bit complex, and the drawings I usually get are, well, lets just say....a bit lacking in clarity and accuracy. I spend a considerable amount of time correcting mistakes, re-designing, and sometimes I just put the drawings aside, hook the thing up, then draw what I've done.

Every once in a while though, I'll make the dumbest mistake on the simplest thing, sometimes I amaze even myself!

I guess occasionally that I need proof that I'm still human.

Hello Everyone,

I call myself "Junkcollector" because it pretty much sums up what I am. I like stuff (Other people call it crap) And I can't get enough of it.

If you've ever seen the show "Sanford and Son" from the 70s, and the Canadian Comedy,"The red Green Show," I'm sort of a combination of the two. (Not necessarily a good thing...)
