    Simply my initials. No middle name, so I won't go down in history as a president or mass-murderer.

    I just find it cute. Well for some reasons, it randomly came out in my mind and I thought it's good so that's it.

    most of the stuff around me is either broken or requires constant tightening bolts.

    "The Warlord of The Weejuns" was the title of liner notes for a Miles Davis album written by Esquire fashion writer George Frazier. I liked the title and the essay. I like weejuns also and just the thought of those shoes in the context of a warlord was just too much. Try to visualize that as a fashion image! And last, but not least I am a huge Miles Davis fan.

    I am a firearms collector and shooter and I've always been fascinated with the mechanical workings and beauty of a vintage revolver.

    During a long summer break while I was in college (a very long time ago now), I got a job tending bar in a pub in London. One of the regulars asked where I was from. I told him and he promptly christened me "The Reno Kid." It caught on and stuck for the remainder of my tenure behind the bar.

    Yes Violets and Violas are pretty flowers as well as nice names, my mother is a Violet, pansies can be stunning too and such large flowers, but what is a Johnny-Jump-up?

    My username came from a geocaching forum and has remained with me through all others in which I've participated. At the time I created it, a big focus on the forum was to log as many caches as possible. As a newbie, my numbers were well below most other members. The pun was too much to resist, so Strapped-4-Cache was created.

    We have 3 Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dogs - Catahoulas for short - and an honorary Catahoula (his Momma was an honorable Nanny Dog from Hurricane Katrina, his Daddy is unknown - since he came from Louisiana, he's a Catahoula at heart). People always respond "Cata whata?" So oldest son started calling them Catawhatas and it stuck.
