My old user name @Jimk is no more. I figured a user name which describes my mixing style, would suit me better.
You mix with cedar chips and buffalo dung? LOL sorry, couldn’t resist.
The throat hit is phenomenal!
How about keeping your avatar for a minute so I can wrap my head around your new name LOL thank God I don’t have to pronounce that.
As long as you don’t have a bad stutter, you should be good to go.
I’ve thought about changing mibe also but haven’t quite got the timing rt??? I will eventually… I like it BTW I don’t think of myself as a quitter any longer it’s more like I began or started something rather than quitting something…
Alright Jim, I’m lost. What does that mean?
According to my dictionary:
kinnikinnick |ˌkinikiˈnik| (also kinnikinnic or kinnikinnik)
a smoking mixture used by North American Indians as a substitute for tobacco or for mixing with it, typically consisting of dried sumac leaves and the inner bark of willow or dogwood.
• N. Amer. the bearberry, which was also sometimes used in kinnikinnick.
Yup. It’s a Native American or more specifically, an Algonquin word which roughly means, that which is mixed. That mixture, typically a combination of leaves and tree bark, was smoked during rituals as spiritual medicine. Many kinnikinnick mixtures did, in fact, include some type of tobacco product; scant amounts, as herbs were the primary ingredient.
I think I just acquired one trying to say it
Thanks for the explanation. I remember when herbs were my primary ingredient.
I’m just gonna pretend all those I’s are O’s from here on out.
So, something like @Konnokonnock … Who’s there?
Yup, cause I love your sense of humor!
I seem to have a rather large gap where my memory used to be, I think it is herbs that did it, but maybe something synthetical was in the mix too. I can’t remember
‘Out with the old’
Don’t scare me like that. I thought us old farts were being evicted!
And…I’m pleading the 5th, on the herbs.
That’s next year…
I was looking through some recipes and was like “who the hell is this Kinnikinick fellow?”. I have thought about changing my nick to WickedFog, but I opted against it for the time being.
You should make your user name whatever you want it to be!
A year ago, when I signed up with ELR, I used the first user name that came to mind. Now that I’ve been mixing a while and chilling on ELR, I’ve had a lot of time to think about my user name.
I’ve always had an affinity for the Native American culture and people. They are the folks, after all, that discovered the many wonderful uses for so many natural plants, particularly tobacco. So, the user name @Kinnikinnick is my way of paying homage to the Native American people.
