    I love good wine. But my favorites come from Spain. So therefore,
    91 - the best year for a Spanish wine from the region of Rioja.
    Rioja - the winemaking region in Spain.


    Does that explain it?

    Model railroading is my cold winter night hobby. In the summer I spent all my spare time sailing on my sailboat. Zig Zag 1 is the name of my boat :)

    My best friends dad and some others call me red because of my hair,although it's more of a brownish red and not a orange red.The C is my first initial,I put it in front because every forum I've joined the handle red has been taken so I don't even try anymore.

    TrainNut- I was on Maui over New Years and dived the Molokini Crater, saw a lot of turtles there. Did some surfing and whale watching. Maui is a cool island.
  9. Smoke

    Smoke SOU is for you!!

    My username came about by the account that I like NASCAR and my favorite driver is Tony Stewart. For those of you who don't follow NASCAR Tony Stewart's nickname is Smoke.

    My signature also holds the secret.

    Since the beginning of time... OK, internet time:) I've used this name. Starting back with the BBSes in the 80's. I went to a catholic high school and was always tired of people pushing their religion on me. I'm not a big religious person, I'm not atheist, I'm not really anything but me... so I'm MyOwnGod (MOG). I've never come across a forum or internet service where some else had the name, except eBay. The reason for eBay was that I signed up for eBay in the beginning and forgot my password. I couldn't use it again and I changed it to MyOwnGod2.

    So that's me
