    Mine has no meaning except I am kind of famous in my small world for my skills with soup making (I grow and cure all my own herbs and seasonings) and the chicki part is kind of obvious :D

    I have had pet rats for a number of years and my first one was named Lula (lularat) She was a very special little lady.

    <---- just as it implies... got into this chicken business late in life... but better to start some time [​IMG] Secondary meaning is that I am definitely NOT a morning person... I need to win the lottery so I can retire again, and so I can start my days around 9-9:30 or so, vice 5am or so.

    Apteryx is the genus name for kiwis, the national bird of New Zealand. People from New Zealand are called kiwis, and I am from New Zealand. I didn't go with kiwi because most people here think that a kiwi is a brown skinned fruit with a green center. We call them kiwifruit or Chinese gooseberries.

    I call them delicious!
    I also adore kiwis! They are so cute!

    Does anyone keep kiwis domestically?

    Really no great story behind my name. I hybridize plants and had one called "Drumstick,"
    The cone made me look younger and thinner, so what the heck I'm a Diva too.

    And some of us had a very busy week-end, just catching up on 2+ days of posts (over 80 some I think)
    Scott is me, Caddy is my very smooth moving Walker cross horse that my DW bought me back in '92 as a yearling, and wild as a march Hare! I can drink a cold one at speed and not spill anything. That mare will do most anything I ask her to, and alot that I didn't want really want/need to do! [​IMG] or[​IMG] while the onlookers are [​IMG], [​IMG] or [​IMG]
