iTail has tagged me. Normally I would do nothing, but because he is so persistent and is such a good Amigo I will this time – once and once only! And I won’t inflict any of my great group of flickr contacts with invitations to do the same, otherwise I may be alone on Flickr.
Accordingly, I am supposed to list 10 things about myself, which hopefully you will find of interest. Here they are, in no particular order or importance, with an 11th for good measure.
1) I have lived in Montreal Canada, Cornwall-on-Hudson NY, London England and Toronto Canada.
2) Graduated New York Military Academy one year behind Donald Trump. We both marched together in a New York City Columbus Day parade, many years ago. Otherwise I don’t know him from a hole in the ground.
3) Have a Ph.D. degree in microbiology from McGill University. Did a postdoctoral fellowship in England, taught university for 4 years and then spent most of my career in the food and pulp & paper industries in environmental management and wastewater treatment operations. I still work full time and do some wastewater consulting on the side as a troubleshooter.
4) I am married with a lovely wife, 2 daughters, a son-in-law and a one really cool 14 month old grandson. Daughter 2 is getting married in a few weeks.
5) I have enjoyed training my a super smart dog (Border Collie cross). He knows over 100 words, responds to numerous hand signals, is a wiz at agility and Frisbee and is trained for movies.
6) I am a Nikon shooter and I enjoy building fine scale wood models of tall ships. see: home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/34097031XyfDAm
7) Favorite place to visit: Ireland (3 visits in the past 6 years.) Love the scenery, the people, the pubs, the Guinness, the photography and the traditional music.
8) I have visited much of North America and Europe, and have been to Japan, New Zealand and parts of the Caribbean.
9) My first car was a Triumph Spitfire Mark II.
10) I shook George Bush Srs. hand when he was VP running for President
11) and lastly, I won’t be responding to any more requests to be tagged 🙂
