I don't know how this thread became reactivated...but I'm love'n it. My name (also my e-name) is a corruption of Mama Tambo from the John Wayne movie "Hatari". Elsa Martinelli played the part of a woman who becomes adoptive mother to two baby elephants...who then follow her EVERYWHERE. The natives named her Elephant Mother/MamaTambo. I haven't adopted any elephants...but that's about the only animal I haven't taken into my home. MamaTamba is a better nickname than "Crazy old animal lady" and it's easier to type.

Dave, I have often wonerded whether this "[Surname] the [Occupation]" is just a South Wales thing. I have lived in part of North Wales for 21 years this time round and have rarely come across it.

There are lots of associations but the usual ones in this area work along the lines of "[Firstname] [Assocaition]". Occupations are used e.g. Dei Plumber, place names e.g. Davey Bangor, House names eg I am still known as Jon Skerryvore, Other things e.g. I am most commonly known as Jon Banjo.... The only person I can thing of with a "the" in it at the moment is Pete the Box - one of the local undertakers.

What's wrong with my name?
Actually, this thread has made me think. You are a good mob
so I'll be honest. I chose a nick because I was not sure
what I might be letting myself in for when I started on the
web, so caution suggested a nickname, which I also use on my
home page. We don't all want to be identified ... and I
didn't mention the Gar ... whoops.
On the other hand, I do not have a problem with attaching my
name to my opinions when appropriate (that is, when it is time
to stand up and be counted. In fact, my name is on an earlier
thread, and also somewhere on the personal profiles (I think
... I've forgotten where to look.
I am a sci-fi fan, and Shimbo Darktree was a god in one of
Roger Zelazny's novels. I have found I am not the only
Shimbo on the net, but there are a hell of a lot more Ian Clarkes.

For many years I was called Syd, my middle name, because when someone on the ship shouted "hey Dave" The Bosun Carpenter, Lamptrimmer, three A/B's, the Second Mate and two Engineers, and me! stopped working and said which Dave? I thought that here we could avoid confusion here if I added a short description of which Dave it was.... Bronwen will back me on this one; try going to Wales and asking to see Dai Jones, Is that Jones the Post, Jones the Reverend, Jones the Taxi, Jones the Police, Jones the Butcher or Jones the Baker? etc. etc. etc. Half the bloody village are known by their trade rather than their name.. (No I am not a Taffy, Bronwen) just over the border in Lancashire born in Gracie Fields hometown. Sailed out of Manchester with many a good Welshman though.

The ddw is my initials and my ID at work (we have to identify our work on every story we write/edit in this business and there was already a dw at the first place I worked), so it's just automatic to type it in.

12 years ago, whilst snowboarding my favorite local backcountry at Mt Cain, Vancouver Island, I heard some local kids call me that. I guess it had something to do with my particular expression of joy upon finding a patch of pow as yet untouched. The young guys were sort of amazed at this much older dude riding stick and I heard one tell another something like "that's that old Cain dog". I kinda liked it and now it's not only on many lists but is also the name of my production company and my solo acoustic bluesman-act alter-ego.

Hmmm, I posted yesterday and it said it went through, etc. but I can't find myself (think I'll ask my boss if I can take time off to find myself -- nah).

Anywho, what I said was I had a summertime nursery colony of little brown bats (that's the variety, and also a description) between the bedroom ceiling and the roof. As a result of annual July (usually) bat adventures, I know a lot about little brown bats and bats in general. Oh, and they like me, so Bat Goddess seemed appropriate.

Last name's too long to type in all the time. I dropped the caps because all too often when I hit the shift key to cap a word, I also get the second letter capitalized as well. It's bad enough in song lyrics but I didn't want that constant reminder of ineptitude. When I sign my name I only use "R" with the last name. Besides all that "rich r" sound better than "poor r"

When feeling rather omnipotent (like a cheesewheel) I address my self as "Mbo" or "Ol' Mbo" (though at 20 years of age, the "Ol'" is pushing it a bit. Maybe when I'm older I'll opt for "Mbo Og."
