Response to Original message
48. I've shared my life with beagles since I was a kid,
and when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, I could have sworn he said "The Beagle has landed", but maybe that was what Darwin said (though I wasn't there to hear Darwin, of course). Anyhow, when I had to pick a name, I wanted something catchy and amuzing and easy for me to remember, and that where my name came from.
