    How did you come up with you username here on Hearth.com forums?

    I'll go first. It is a bit obvious...
    I am a Firefighter/Paramedic and love cycling. That is bicycling.

    Cool. A saw older than Old Yaller. A 1991 Poulan Pro 405+. I was eyeballing new Husky saws at Tractor Supply today. Until I realized the only things that were attracting me were that they are lighter and have a new sharp chain.

    And maybe that Spike would show me how to put a turbo on one.

    Cool! I have an old HomeLite 330. Good ol' saw. I think it is from the late 80's. I also have an old HomeLite Super XL. Not sure of its age. One of my favorites is the saw I replaced last year with a new Husky, It replaced the Jonsered I used for years. It was a hand-me-down from my father. Great saw. Best I have ever owned! Talk about high compression! whew!

    Yeah. Good thing that Old Yaller has a compression release on it or I would need a kick starter.

    Lowe's still carrys them. Probably something to do with Husky being spun off and returning to a stand alone corporation instead of being part of Electrolux. Since Electrolux owns Poulan there is no telling what kind of corporate mud wrestling is going on.

    The big money is in the lawn mowers and garden tractors and Husky tractors are made by American Yard Products just like Sears' and Poulan's so who knows?

    Eatenbylimestone. I have actually seen that happen to a guy. He fell into a lime pit at a ready-mix concrete plant. Was there for about an hour. Massive burns! I hope that didn't happen to you!

    Just about when the internet started I was also realizing that I could do a better job of managing my energy footprint. Begreen became sort of a personal mantra and my moniker for the past decade.

    PutnamJct is short for Putnam Junction, a defunct railroad interchange not too far from me. Don't know why I started using it (on this board and others) but have been using it for a while now

    The computer guy is our office is always coming in at the beginning day saying "Dudes. Let's burn one!" The older people in the office thought he wanted to start a fire. I didn't have the heart to tell them otherwise. When joining the forum it was the first thing to jump in my head.
