I changed my name on here due to the fact that I am no longer new and not as confused. 

Thanks to Ann for helping me with this.

I think it is a great name although I am a bit biased. It also examplifies your strength and stability unlike your previous name.

Welcome into the fold, Sir :D

The new name is much better.
"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful nor conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, adaptation in A Walk To Remember

Hello Pete,


I like your change of name too. Just don't change your name from Pete to something else, or I will be confused ;)  Glad things are going better for you !!

Hi Pete,

You're welcome! I agree, much better name. ;D

And thank you for starting this thread to let folks know. I meant to ask you to do that when we discussed your change, but I think I forgot. ??? I should change my own name to BrainFog. ;)

Hugs,
Ann

We try to not make a habit of changing people's screennames. If everyone was doing it, we'd all end up confused. We mainly agree to change names when they're something like "confused newbie". Raroy, yours isn't one that we'd change.

We do consider each case on its own merits but there needs to be a real reason for the change. You need to contact a moderator to set the wheels in motion.

Definitely like the new one much better!

thanks everyone for supporting my change to my name plus two places I spend the most time.  I live in Hudson County, NJ (about 5 miles outside of New York City - people mostly know Jersey City and Hoboken).  I work in Times Square NYC (ugh).  My office moved from our really shitty offices on 57th street (right near fabu shopping and dinning Russina Tea Room, Burberry, Tiffanys, Dior, Gucci, Prada,Bergdorf Goodman...all of which I can't afford) to a fabulous office in tourist central.

Congratulations on the new name.  Now, time to get on with the rest of your life.

By the way, the last time I was in NYC, Times Square was full of those seedy theatres (don't ask, don't tell).
See, changes everywhere and  things just keep getting better.
