    AUA1989; Aruba airport code, year of first visit.

    When the kids were growing and first getting onto the the internet I remember when there was such a push to not put personal information out there. I was always preaching to my kids, no name, no address, no phone, no school, no hobby, no personal descriptions, no vacation info, no pics with identifying info. Anyone remember those days? So, I got into that habit as well, and on most sites I don't use my name.

    However, that seems so old fashioned now. Everywhere we look, FB, instagram, email has personal data. And, if we don't publish it ourselves, someone else will.

    Signed, Stacy

    ''CRIMMS" nickname from high school. I was able to get it as my sign in name when MSN started, so I have kept it all these years. Nice to not have a number after your name. We really enjoy this forum and have met some of you crazy people when in Aruba. It is so funny to bump into someone on the island and find out they are a member on this board.

    This one is easy, and shows a huge lack of imagination. First name, last name.

    All the best from Brazil

    i met a acquaitance of yours yesterday here at the Renaissance
    they checked out this morning.

    his last name "font....or something sounding like "font"
    born in argentia,raised in brazil, has met you and your bride a number of times at journalism events/trips.
    he told me who he works for and his accent was too hard for me to understand and i asked him 3+ to repeat himself but it got embarrassing for me.

    anyway, he is married, and his 2 children girls are aged 3 and 5.
    they live in sao paolo

    'sorry i went off topic

    Good ole Va Beach, that was our first week long vacation as a couple, and many weekend trips. We love Catch 31. Sorry i know I am way off topic. Now we found Aruba and the boardwalk just doesnt have the same appeal anymore.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Gramdee here. I'm Grammy to 12 and my precious autistic grandson always calls me Dee. The others copied him and I became GramDee. It's too cute to not use.

    Pretty simple. As I think I have made pretty obvious over the years, I collect casino chips. I especially love the chips from Aruba. Since I joined this forum, I branched out into a number of other casino collectibles areas for Aruba, but chips are still my first and main love.

    How did you pick your Aruba.com name??-arusino.jpg
    Chip Collector means casino chip collector. Simple, right?
