  1. My given name in Tsalgi ( Cherokee ) Means (Man of the Earth). My Brother in Law hung me with RC in 1970 and it just took. My Mother called me that until the day she passed. Because I cooked so good and all the time, They called me Chef- Boy -RC. I shortened it to Chefrc

  4. chigger

    chigger Newbie

    I'm an Ozark Hillbilly true blood. My families roamed those wonderful hollers and mountains for centuries.  It seemed that when I was real young I had a tendency to stick my nose into situations that it didn't belong in and generally just get under all the grown-ups skin. During one family reunion an uncle got pissed at me bothering him and his kin and yelled at maw, "Come get this youngin, he bugging the daylights outta us, He's worse than a dam chigger". Well you can figure out the rest. I guess you can say I'm still a chigger (PITA) at 54 years of age. Ha!
  5. muck

    muck Newbie

    My name came from when I used to do construction running heavy equiptment. The week my company shirts came in instead of having my name they said, Muck. The same week I burried a bull dozer in a swamp. The name has stuck with me now for about 10 years. All my sports jersey's and license plate say Muck as well.

    That's my story.

  11. I retired from Fish and Wildlife enforcement in 1999 after 30 years of service.  The local Cattlemen's Assoc, County. Commissioners , 4 private timber companies, and Sheriff's Office begged me to do a private law enforcement contract to patrol for them.  I finally told them I would give them until the end of the season, about 5 months, on a trial basis.  They had a range/timber deputy who also begged me to try it.  He was an original member of Seal Team One and could be quite persuasive.  I ended up giving them10 years.  Our accountant told me to buy a computer, then I got e-mail and needed a name and came up with Rangecop, 'cause it seemed to fit.  This is agreat website and someday I'll figure out how to do the Q-view struf.

    Handyman Herb, well let me think, don't give me any hints, I'll get it, it's right on the tip of my tongue.

    Living in Florida made it hard to stay working in one trade, so had to learn them all working different jobs, now I'm a journeyman in most trades except for roofing and A/C.

    I love to get jobs, I can take from dirt to finished project or a complete remodeling job, makes you think a whole lot more.

    In chiropractic, one of our over-arching premises is that the body functions and heals from "Above Down & Inside Out" rather than the way most westerners think of function and healing (from the outside in).  Hence the "ADIO" portion of my screen name.  "CHIRO" is for my profession, and the "3" is because I am the third in my lineage to bear my name.
  14. It's short for "Wonko The Sane". One of the many incredible characters in that most incredible collection of books; " The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy".
