    Explain your username

    Given there seems to be so much interest here on what your username means or why you use it, why not start a place to encapsulate that.

    So to inaugurate the conception.

    vixi means in Latin means I have lived as in my life is over. Chosen because it seems to fit with recently entering retirement.

    I posted in the other thread my inspiration was akin to the the quote from Quintus Horatius Flaccus commonly known as Horace, "We rarely find anyone who can say he has lived a happy life, and who, content with his life, can retire from the world like a satisfied guest."

    So what does you username mean and why did you choose it?

    Quite unimaginatively, mine is due to the love of bacon, and a tribute to a magical animal that can turn vegetables into a tasty treat.

    Medieval beliefs like any other religious crap.

    In the immortal words of Jim Jeffries, " you take beer and bacon away from me and I'll fly a plane into a building!"

    I don't take it literally, more of how society see's retirement.

    Even the word retirement means that in a way.

    Society (not me personally) places a lot of value on how productive something is. So it seemed fitting.

    Are you an older retiree Vixi? A mid seventies retiree like our super fit Ian Forbes.. or are you of a younger generation able to retire early?

    Just like newbies who fall for the "I like pompui" line 555!
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!
