    I grew up in the Canadian Rockies and worked for the National Parks in the summer while I was going to University.

    Re: Where did you get your screenname?

    I got this name from my brothers when we were little kids - they were trying to tease me with it. I grew fond of it over the years and my good friends now call me this as term of endearment! My brothers don't anymore.

    I've spent so much time either in my own garden or working in other people's gardens, inthegarden just seemed like a good screenname.
    And besides FoRT, it is one of my favorite places to be.

    I'll see if I can find the story about mine here somewhere. Too lazy right now to type it out.

    I'm not very big, only 5'2". I used to work as a welder in a factory with almost all men. The guys I worked with started calling me "Lil Bit", and it stuck.

I had the gabriel name also after a good friend but this suits me better. Sorry about the long winded post.
