Guess my user name could conjure up someone always in a rush who whizzes along getting everything done at break neck speed, sorry to disappoint, I'm more laid back and reclining than the name suggests.
To cut to the chase, one evening whilst reminiscing with family, saying how grand life had turned out, we got to talking about what we were like as children. I'm the youngest of five and apparently when learning to talk couldn't pronounce my name, so would announce to everyone, much to their amusment, I was called Loomer. At about the same time as this family gathering, people were just starting to e-mail but not always using their real name, the internet, me thinks hadn't been invented then, we had a very amusing evening saying what each other should call themselves on e-mail.
When I first signed up on a garden forum, didn't know much about gardening and Loomer was not a name I was about to sign up asso thought of something which rhymed, Bloomer wasn't even in the stakes, so it was Zoomer.
