    What's the background to your forum signature?

    What does it mean?

    Where did it come from?

    Why did you choose it?

    Mine is a dedication that Harvey Grant wrote in his book, "Vehicle Extrication" I love it- it sums everything about rescue and firefighting in general.

    Everything we do is monumental,and it begins with training...

    We shouldn't dwell on the past and those we could not save- learn from it and use that knowledge for future scenes we face....

    Mine declares my affiliation and awareness that I'm a pain in the ***.

        Mostly mine is of a philosophical nature, with a splash of sarcam or humour, just for fun. A lot of time what is in my signature is a reflection of my inner attitude towards the world at large. Once in a while though, what it reads has no bearing on anything I am thinking or feeling, other than it just "felt good" at the time.

          simply ........ Cuz I can hehehe ..... that's generally my excuse when asked why I've done something or am doing something. Most times anything in my signature is of a sarcastic nature, MUCH like myself

            Mine is a mantra most applicable in this type of forum.

            With all the pointless arguing that goes on around these places, if I do decide to pick a bone with someone, I hope they know it is a compliment.

                Hmmm. First line refers to the females on the department that think I'm nutty. Actually, it could refer to all the damn kids under 25, but the line is from a Steely Dan tune, and I'll not adjust it just to suit my needs. I'll show them.

                Second line is a great crusty line I once heard from an instructor in one of my first live fire trainings. I nearly fell over.

                Third one is a line I threw at one of our new guys when I was explaining our grass rig, and what to do if the water supply was interrupted. We both busted up, so I decided it's a motto to live by.

                Last one describes an affiliation I am immensly proud to be included in....

                Now, where was I......?

                  The first line is my rank, as if it wasnt obvious by my forum name.

                  And, the second is an association I am affiliated with, and proud of it.

                  I guess I am not nearly as creative with words as those before me.

                    Mine is an example of a typical morning at the firehouse kitchen table, the motto of the FOOLS and my affiliation in the IACOJ.

                    It has been edited from time to time, the new one reflects my present thoughts and status.

                          Mine is because someone has to cook for all of the Crusties and I am proud to be accepted in such a fine organization. I figure if I cook for you I can get you to behave some of the time anyway. That and cooking is my first passion, love and talent in life.
