Hello to all

I just joined - now 15 minutes ago and I am pleased with all the activity. I hope to get to know many here and share ideas. I noticed I am the ony one that entered my full name and now feel very exposed . I wanted to go back and change it but don't seem to have that ability - does anyone know how I can do that. Thanks to all.

I use my full name, Scott. I don't post too often but when I do I use the name I was born with with with pride. It is an old Irish family name that was first used by my ancestor here in America in the year 1699 when Caron Brannon came here as an indentured servant at the age of
12.

I would not change it Scott. I use my real name, not my full name, but I sure don't hide my identity. Anyone can click on my website in my signature and find out way more about me than they most likely care to. Welcome by the way.

Thank you all for the welcome. I am convinced to leave my full name.

Jack I am the proud Scottish man - with a little Irish.

Daren - do you still have leads for yo-yo's and things?

My site by the way is:

Hey Scott. Kevin Jaynes here. A Scot Irish Texan, who's forefathers in between paused in North Carolina for a couple hundred years. Still have some in the Morganton area and all along what is now known as the Blue Ridge Parkway.

No don't feel exposed or wierd. You're among friends and maybe even family if we went digging.

Hey TexasTimbers

Thanks for the reply. Nice Country there in Morganton. If you ever visit those NC relatives let me know. How did you get involved with the Kehoe dovetail jig?

leejb - Thanks for the welcome and kind comments about my site. I really enjoyed your articles on your site. What a wonderful idea for using strips, cut from an inner tube, for clamping. Thanks again

Scott

Long story but in a nutshell I got to know the inventor and his wife in the early 90s. He had a stroke in 2002, and had to quit all his activities. Beth (Mrs. Kehoe) continued the business somewhat until he passed last year. Unknown to me I had been pre-selected as the one to revive the company. I cheerfully accepted.
