I'm assuming it is for similar reasons!

Well I don't really remember where it started but it seemed to stick as a NickName since the last name was St. John. The 23 was added just for an old email address. Wow that was an exciting tale.

You run a Italian Restaurant called "Georgio's", you are the owner and friends with Tony Sapranno?

I am now in management in our Wisconsin operations and still cross paths with many old friends from my traveling days....and am still refferred to quite often as JohnnyB
