Haven't been in here in a while. Nice to see how everyone got their screen names! :)))

:wow I just found this thread!
The first 2 letters in my name stand for "Piano Man." And no, I am not a man. I am a girl. :grin My real name is Theresa. But I decided on the name "Piano Man" (named after the song by Billy Joel) a few years ago when I registered for YouTube, . It was one of my favorite songs, and still is today. Anyway, eventually I began to be known as "PM," and when I was registering for this site I decided to use it here too. And the rest of my name speaks for itself...PM is a Bonanza lover!

That is interesting. I thought PM were the initials of your first and last name.

I had originally thought of using Ben's Liz as my name, as in his first wife. But life has been a calamity or comedy of late, I'm not sure which....so Calamity Liz just seemed to fit at the time.

I took Monica and attached the first lettor of my last name to it. However, Monica is my middle name. Moira is my first name. But for some reason, everyone calls me Monica. Who am I to argue? I go along with it. Hence MonicaJ.

Eli.P.R. is easy to explain: my name is Elisa (Eli is the abbreviation) and registered on 18 may on the birthday of one of my three favorite actors: Pernell Roberts; the others are Henry Darrow and Peter Breck, but I chose PR because it is the site dedicated to Bonanza.
