BORA TAGGED ME (see, I wrote a title like I promised)

Bora (Coturnix) plays a game on his site ( in which he "tags" some people (?) to fill in a bunch of categories involving personal choices. I'm apparently "it" today, so here goes:

Four jobs I've had in my life- Rod man for a surveyor (you have to dig those damn monument holes), Fuller Brush Man (ring 100 housewives doors a day and you'll learn what "desperate" really means), Polical speech writer( one guy I wrote for ended up face down in SF Bay, it's OK nowadays, though, he was a liberal), Stock broker, from which I need an occasional break, which is why I write)
Four movies I could watch over and over- 1000 Clowns (too bad Robards died), American President (shhh, I'm a liberal), High Fidelity (Cusack's a genius), and of course, Casablanca
Four places I've lived- Carbondale, IL, New Milford, CT, San Francisco, CA (during the flower-child days), Worms, Germany (no, I'm not old enough to know Martin Luther personally, but I could use a good Diet)
Four TV shows I love to watch- Numbers ( to get in touch with my nerd side), Arrested Development (it's the only way to feel good about my upbringing), Lost (because I am, usually), and Grey's Anatomy (the female interns are HOT).
Four places I've been on vacation- Cancun, mexico (where I lost a golf ball in an iguana hole, you get a free lift, if you dare to reach in), Amalfi, Italy (only married a year, then, I played no golf) , Aspen, CO ( I climbed to the upper lake at Maroon Bells- gorgeous), Disney World (took kids, then grandkids), I also went to Mardi Gras, but I can't remember a thing after Pete's)
Four websites I visit daily- I check on my classmates- nileblog.blogspot, thescreaminmemey.blogspot, takethisdotcom.blogspot, and of course, brettevans.blogspot. If you're wondering why I don't just link you to them, my ancient computer doesn't seem to want to let me.
Four of my favorite foods- porcupine meatballs, javanese sate ( I first had it at Trader Vic's, now long gone- if you couldn't score after sharing those humongous tropical drinks you're a eunich), chicken mole, and corned beef hash (for breakfast)- also anything extremely caloric.
Four places I'd rather be- Roaring Fork River Valley (they still have cattle drives down Main Street), Lake Garda, Italy, Studio 54 (in 1977), in Michelle Pfeiffer's bedroom (by personal invitation)
Four albums I can't live without- Tom Lehrer (If you can remember him, you're too damn old), Ella's Greatest HIts, Julie London ( the sexiest voice in recorded history), and , inevitably Patsy Cline

Now that I've proved myself to be a man of impeccable taste, Bora, help me find the memeing of life.

Oops, forgot to "tag" . I tag Brett,

I haven't been tagged in a while. I'll happily do it...but it will probably be later next week. I have a flow on the go. OK?

6 ways to prevent child abduction;
1. Never leave your child alone in a public place, car, or stroller.
2. Point out a safety house or houses in your neighbourhood, where children can go if they are in troble.
3. Check older friends of your child and all potential babysitters.
4. Do not use clothing or toys with your childs name on it. A child will less likely fear someone who knows his/her name.
5. Always accompany your child to a public restroom.
6. Keep an up-to-date color photograph of your child. a child I.D, and medical and dental history, and have your child fingerprinted. Child Abduction is a growing concern and there are simple precautions that you can take to help safeguard your children.

Sad to say I just got back from a bowling tournament and decided to log in and do some websurfing. I love your blog. It had some very good laughs. I am doing a paper on nicklaus golf equipment and have been downloading information for the last hour. I don�t know how I came across your blog but I am glad I did. It has set me back a little because I have spent the last hour reading your archives. If you don�t mind I would like to add you to my favorites so I can back again and read some more. Well I need to get back to nicklaus golf equipment. I am almost finished with it. Great job.

p.s some very good points on your blog
