Some of you have written me on my email account and asked about B'Elana Torres Merryweather Tapal's name...well it is from the Star Trek Voyager series....the character is B'Elana Torres and she is a tough-as-nails half-Klingon half-Human character. The name "Merryweather" comes from one of my favorite books "Gone With The Wind"...and the name Tapal also comes from Star Trek Voyager -- it is Tuvok's (a Vulcan) wife's name.
So....that's it! Thanks for your comments...oh, wow! TWO posts in one day! That's a record for me!
