A - age? 45
B - born on what day of the week? I have no idea what day...July 26, 1958 if someone wants to figure it out.
c - chore you hate? Dishes, that's why I keep paper plates and plastic utensils in my cabinets...wonderful time saver.
D - dad's name? Delmar
E - essential grooming item? Toothbrush and electric shaver
F - favorite actor? (past)Jimmy Stewart (present) Michael Douglas
G - gold or silver? White gold
H - hobby? Building computers
I - instruments you play? Trumpet
J - job? HVAC aka Heating and air conditioning...I mainly design duct systems and install in residential and commercial applications...very little involvement on the service end
K - kids? 1 daughter, 17 yrs old and about to leave the nest.
L - living arrangements? Own my own home and share it with a cat.
M - mom's name? Wilma
N - number of pets you currently have? 1 four legged poopin' machine...my daughters, or I would have none
O - overnight hospital stays? single overnight?...none...I always manage to find away to have multiple overnights if I am going to go...2 of those instances in my life.
P - phobias? None that I can think of now...I look at them more as aversions... In my job over the years I have overcome being bothered by heights and spiders...it's only a phobia if you can't face it head on.
Q - quote you like best? Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day....teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day..(unknown)
R - recreation you take part in? My area doesn't offer a lot of rec. but I try to find time to hike in the hills of our local park/lake...I relax in my yard by pitching horseshoes.
S - siblings? 2 brothers and one sister, all much older than I...I was one of those things that happened when the moon came out and dad got THAT gleem in his eye.
T - time you rise in the morning? 6:25 on weekdays...on the weekend I have to force myself to sleep to 7:30
U - unique habit? Nothing unique to think of, but I do print instead of using cursive writing...all block lettering, all capital letters...the only time I use cursive is for my signature. I blame it on being left-handed
V - vegetable you refuse to eat? Pickles
W - worst habit? Smoking...nasty, nasty, nasty
x - x-rays you have had? too many to name...mostly lower torso area
Y - yummy food you make? My daugher loves my homemade burritos smothered in green chili gravy....as for myself, I make a mean burger....I don't just throw meat in a pan...onion soup mix with egg,adding mushrooms, bacon and cheese on top with thin sliced onion and sour cream on the side.
Z - zodiac sign? Leo

I cannot participate in these type of threads. I have Webtv...no cutting and pasting or patience to write it all down.

This one is way to personal to put on the web, unless I lied.

Anyone else have issues with these type of questions?

I guess I don't see how it was too personal, myself...other than parents first names, very little was revealed to strangers on the iternet....unless they want to kidnap my cat...(take my cat, PLEASE!!!)

I guess I am too highly sensitive to asking for fathers name, mothers name, siblings, time to rise, because I was once stalked. It could be easy to put together? No?

I understand your apprehenshion,in that manner, Walksalone....I've seen others go thru it and it's a very upsetting situation, for sure..anyone around here that ever has that problem on the internet, feel free to drop me an email, it can be stopped much faster than you think

I experienced it outside of the internet. Yes, It can be stopped, I will leave it there. I just want to be careful of the trail left here.

Another site I visit records the number of responses, and VIEWS. A string will get ten answers but one thousand views.

We feel we are talking only to each other, but NOT!

true, they can get thousands of views, but in a newsgroup situation it's a matter of picking and choosing what you reply to. I've done a name search on google before for tinmantu and most of the stuff that turns up are posts, here on garden web...I feel comfortable knowing that as long as I don't post my credit card number on here, I feel safe.

My apologies to Kay. This thread was hi-jacked by me. Soo sorry. Let's leave it here. Anymore discussion should be a different topic.

I really am enjoying these quotes. I don't know if I have an all time favorite, but the one that most often comes to mind is from the Rubaiyat:
"A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou beside me,
singing in the wilderness. Ah wilderness would be Paradise enough!"

For another angle on this quote, see the link below. It is one of my favorite Web sites.
