Boeta at Our Rumbling Ocean has revealed seven facts about himself and his family and linked to 15 blogs we might like. The idea is that each link-owner should do the same.
I won’t give you 15 links but I will update my blogroll so you can choose. It has not been refreshed for a while and I need to add some of my newer followings, including of course Our Rumbling Ocean.
I can probably do 7 facts. Here goes:
I can’t draw or paint to save my life. I struggle to draw a straight line with a ruler. So I write and photograph as my creative outlets. I have huge admiration for those who are artistic.
I can’t play a musical instrument. My father was a good pianist and my brother could play and was a choral scholar at an English cathedral. Where did the musical gene go?
I am a much better teacher than I am doer. Does as I say not as I do.
I have spent most of my life since 1997 in Hong Kong but I don’t like Chinese food much. I tolerate it at best.
My ideal day is spent travelling with a camera in my hand and my wife by my side. I have visited all 7 continents and if there were an 8th I would want to go there.
I am arguably the world’s most intolerant driver. I, of course, am perfect and everybody else is a menace to safety on the road. The older I get the stronger my conviction becomes.
I am totally unable to understand modern technology. It intimidates me. Unless I can plug and play I hate it. I spent 2 hours last night trying to get a wifi router extender to work. Failed. I want to go back to the 1960s.
So there we are. 7 facts about the real me. But are they true?
