Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

I got it from my parents. In Italian, "Fiore" means flower. "Jim" is short for "James" which is a variant of "Jacob" which means "the supplanter". So, I guess that means that I'm the guy who supplants flowers. Or maybe I'm a flower that supplants other flowers. Or maybe my parents just thought it sounded better than "Zeke Fiore". I dunno. I've been using it for almost 50 years. Works well enough.
