50 Things About Me

So Lady Hardcore (http://lady-hardcore.blogspot.com/2011/03/everything-you-ever-wanted-or-dont-care.html), a virtual friend from Edmonchuck, has motivated me to compile a list of 50 facts about myself.  Now I know that I could never come to quality list that she put together, and that is obvious since I am only doing 50 to her 100, but it’s an excercise that should prove interesting, well to me anyways!
