Bob Jovi is not my nickname. I've been called Spanky (in Ithaca NY), Putt (other New York locales), Diesel (in Vermont), Lucky (the Boston area), and Doctor J (my current handle). I've probably forgotten a few.
I adopted Bob Jovi to baffle Animaterra when were were swopping locales a while back. We live in the same town, but I didn't want to tip my hat too soon.
Some people must believe that it is my real name. Alas, neither do I rock, or hail from New jersey.
