Five things

Dan tagged me with the five things blog thing that is going around. So here are 5 things about me that you may not know about me:

  1. My first real job was as a Paper Boy delivering news papers. I did the job for five years every day before school, rain, snow or shine. I'm always inclined to ask people I interview what job they did as a teenager. Newspaper delivery scores highly.

  2. I sang in a Church Choir for 10 years as a child/teenager. This included an annual “Cathedral Course” where we went off to a different Cathedral for a week, well 10 days, 3 days preparing and 6 days singing with one day off, while the real choir was on holiday. I sang at: Lincoln, Norwich, Litchfield, York, St Albans, and Salisbury. Great music, fantastic social life and started me on the road to Atheism.

  3. For my first six years at Sun I did not cycle to work at all. In fact for a large amount of that time I did not cycle at all. The Company car almost got me. I have got better now though.

  4. My first adult bike was a four speed Moulton. (very similar to the Moulton Standard pictured on Wikipedia, it was even blue). It was distinctive, great for use on the Paper round but encouraged me to get more traditional five speed diamond framed “racer”.

  5. I don't really do chain letters which this is just the modern form. So I won't be tagging anyone else.
