Welcome to the home of The Bird of Prey. I'll be as brief as possible in explaining the purpose of this thread and it's name. Purpose - To provide a place for me and you to exchange ideas on just about everything, stock related especially, but open to what ever is on our mind at the time. The Name... Aviary - a home for winged creatures. Able to rise above the fray and view the situation from a different perspective, the inhabitants of this Aviary will need to be a breed apart. The Bird of Prey - My alias/handle/moniker for over twenty years now. Originally it was my love of the real birds of prey (eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, etc.) that caused me to choose this handle, but after a short time during the early days of chatrooms and BBS's it took on a different meaning. Though I dislike them immensely, I will not back down in a flame war. In a very short time during those early days I earned a bit of a reputation as having a bit of a flamethrower. After one particularly nasty exchange an observer commented that my opponent should quit while he still could. The exact comment was "That's no ordinary Bird of Prey...That's a Dragon...flamethrower built in and never needs refueling!" Since at the time I also had a serious interest in fantasy and myth (still do) I considered the comment a great compliment. It didn't hurt that a few years later Star Trek (Sci-fi is another of my interests) named a Klingon vessel class "Bird of Prey". So my handle reflects several sides of my personal interests at the same it should be. The Ticker... WEYR - From Ann McCaffrey's Pern series - the name given to the place that was home to Dragons. It is perfectly acceptable to call me by the shorthand BOP. Even the old BBS Lingo site says so. What does it all mean? Never anger a dragon, for thou art crunchy...and go well with Brie!
