Preferred Name: Jari (pronounced Jerry)

Date of Joining Staff: 5/4/2012

Staff Roles: Mod

Background to Username: My first name is Jari and Kira was my calico cat at the time. Just added them together and that's also why my old avatar was Purrl.

Background to Avatar: My cat Miller lays right next to me on the arm of my chair whenever I'm on the computer so I thought he should be next to me in my avatar.

Favorite AC Game: I would have to say WW because I can play in my recliner while watching TV - does it get any better than that?

Favorite Color: Blue

Hobbies: Quilting, crossstitch, reading, video games, ACC.

A Little Bit About Me: I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA and have lived in that general area most of my life. I worked for 34 years in a Hospital until I retired. I'm very close to my family and pretty involved in my church. When I think of all I have seen in 60 years of life I'm amazed - color TV, space travel, jets, computers, portable phones, video games, the list goes on and on. I have one grandson, Meicol who is my video game buddy.

An Update!

Background to Avatar: My cat Miller lays right next to me on the arm of my chair whenever I'm on the computer so I thought he should be next to me in my avatar.

   Update: Miller is still my sweety, getting a little older and slower but still comes running when he hears the keys to my computer!

Favorite AC Game: I would have to say WW because I can play in my recliner while watching TV - does it get any better than that?

   Update: Now my favorite AC game would definitely be NL. I run  three towns even now. I visit 2 of them everyday, so I can keep all my favorite villagers! It was just so hard getting my favs, I just can't let them go.

Favorite Color: Blue

Hobbies: Quilting, crossstitch, reading, video games, ACC.

   Update: I now have three grandsons. The 11 year old Meicol, who is still my video game buddy! A 2 year old named Naun and six month old named Bradley. They are the light of my life.

Member pedro_collins asked:

Have you learnt anything about yourself from being a Moderator on the Site?

Yes, I feel like I have learned a lot of patience. I used to always be a go, go, go  person both in my actions and my reactions. I made snap judgments and tended to just see things in the immediate future.
Being a Mod has made me slow down in my thinking and see what my actions now could do to events in the future.

As a Mod we have to think if we change this rule, then this will happen, then that will happen and even this could possibly happen!

It also has taught me to depend on my fellow Mods for their viewpoints. In the job I had for so many years in a hospital I had to be depend on myself and be rather autonomous.

Member GavinGoneGlobal asked:

What is the reasoning behind the names you've picked for your various pets throughout the years?

I have had a series of calico cats that all went by the name of Kira. My daughter picked out the name Kira and I'm not sure why to be honest. But it was just easier to keep naming them Kira as they all went to that catnip garden in the beyond. The fourth and final Kira is the one I had when I joined ACC - so I added her to my username.

At that time I also had a very furry white cat with a bright orange tail which I named Flame because when he was running, he looked like his tail was on fire!

Now my only furry baby is Miller which I got as a rescue and as he was an adult and very used to his name, I kept it. After hearing about the place they had taken him from, I'm pretty sure he was named after the Beer!

Edit 1/25/16: Well, my furry baby Miller crossed the Rainbow bridge and it broke my heart. But I have a new little guy named Link - doubt if I have to explain the reason for that one!
