One Fun Fact

      I don't want your life's story.  Share just one interesting, fun fact about yourself please.  I'll start the ball rolling.  I am a U.S. Army Snow Snake, fully trained and qualified to wage war at the North Pole.

Slinging is usually my fun fact...

I'll go with another one, in about 1 year I will (fingers crossed) be a doctor of robotics.

My first covid patient was around late Oct./ early Nov. 2019. He had come back from a business trip in China and had to leave as people in the city had begun having mysterious respiratory symptoms that were spreading rapidly around the city. He said the doctors over there were calling it an unknown coronavirus. Covid wasnt officially confirmed in America until Jan. 20th, 2020.

I will be applying for Finnish citizenship soon. I have been living here for more than 5 years, have been paying my taxes and have passed the required language test. I'll be a dual UK/ Finnish citizen with two passports meaning I will be free to move around the EU again no problem. Suck it Brexit!

Not about me but about my family: during WWII my great grandparents were hiding a frenchman in our basement who escaped from the local concentration camp from the germans. He actually learned few czech words like chléb/chleba(bread). He became our family friend and came to visit us few times after communist dictatorship here ended though sadly he passed away right after I was born. But my now deceased mother remembered him.

I am wondering how many more interesting stories of my family in this house there are. My family lived in this house from the early 1700's(that is also why I am so hesitant to move somewhere else. I don't want this to end with me)

Rat Man,  If you slip on the ice and hurt yourself, not to worry. I can help as  I was a U.S. army combat medic. Fully trained at Ft. Sam, Texas in 69 Huh

I was taught how to flyfish by the man who designed all the electrics on the Concorde.

That was a pretty good summer holiday, think I was about 11 or 12.

I have a friend who’s great grandpa (who is still alive BTW), worked with Johnny Cash in Germany, while they were in the Air Force, during the Korean War.

Happy Slinging, and God bless my friend.
