    Do you have any interesting facts about you, your family, etc?

    I saw this question asked on another forum, and some of the responses were interesting.

    For example;

    My Great Uncle is John Sutter, of CA gold rush fame.:s0105:

    I've been interviewed on a national talk radio show and NW Cable News in Seattle.:s0005:

    Articles written by me have been published in Architectural Digest magazine.:s0108:

    Growing up, my parents would not let me even own a BB gun.:s0010:

    Nothing to brag about here, just an average American. I did stay in a Best Western once though.:D

    I once ran for president, but told no one.

    On a more serious note, I do have a membership in the Mayflower Society. We managed to trace one of our family lines to one of the families that came over on the maiden voyage. Thankfully at least one of the family members survived that first winter so I could be here to entertain you today.

    I also got my pilot's license while a senior in high school. But cost and health issues got me out of flying 25 years ago. I do miss it.

    Growing up, I owned a .22 before I ever was allowed (by my mother) to have a BB gun. The .22 was locked, of course, but I had to wait until I was 16 and bought my own BB gun :p My mother wasn't pleased.

    I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. Stay thirsty my friends. :s0059:

    Had to reflect on the question a bit then decided you can tell just as much about a person by the time they were born as you can the place. Those times are gone even though the places remain.o_O

    I've stayed at Holiday Inn Express's before, but it didn't help me.:(

    Maybe I'll try BW..

    This shouldn't be interpreted as a "Bragging" thread.:)

    "Are you a GOOD person" is really the only question everyone should ask themselves......the rest is just a crap shoot..............:D

    But some of that "crap" can be interesting:cool:;):D

    I was born and raised in Canada...but always felt I was an American.
    My wife and I didn't want to immigrate illegally, but then back in 1988 there was to be an NP5 lottery. We sent in 300 entries.
    We won a spot.
    After 5 years we were sworn in as citizens.
    8 days later... my daughter was born.
    Then,
    18 years later we had to immigrate again ...Back to America (Idaho) from California;)

    WOW!
    Welcome again to the USA!

    I'm glad you escaped Canada.

    With the snow 24/7/365, Justin Bieber, Jim Carey, and Celine Dion, you made a excellent choice to "escape"....:confused::D:)

    I can now add (1) item and that being I've been to your fort in Sacramento many times and I was born in your memorial hospital. :D

    Other than that, my only other claim is having Andy Granatelli, his wife Dolly and one of their drivers named Art Pollard spend time at my house when I was a kid. :cool:

    Almost forgot...my Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills. :)

    I once was a drug dealer (meth, pot, crank)... I never got caught.

    Now I deal Bibles and love seeing other people's lives changed for the better.

    I too have a father who has cattle on a thousand hills. Ps50:10
