Nominated, shocked and excited!

I was nominated for the Creative Blogger Award by fellow friends and bloggers, Eldaeriel and Xannziee which is a great surprise (shock 🙂 ) as I’m very new to getting back into blogging since my first attempt back in the early 2000s.

A very special thank you for the complete shock nominations Eldaeriel and Xannziee.  Very much appreciated although I am a mere baby in the blogging world.

5 Nonsense Facts 

#1 Few years ago I got fed up with eating manufactured bread and remembered my dad always use to make his own and I loved the smell of fresh bread on a Sunday.  I decided to follow his footsteps but go old style by trying to make Artisan bread and grow my own leaven (yeast).  Took  me 3-7 mth to learn and succeed to point happy with the outcome, favorite was Walnut & Cranberry Sourdough.

#2 Dont like ants much, get everywhere, swarm around from nothing.

#3 Massive sci-fi (space) fan, Babylon 5 for its depth and intertwining story through the series.  I still re-watch all series and see, hear conversations in early episodes reflecting later series story lines and lore which it then later delivers on.  Stargate being another great story telling space sci-fi soap, along with other greats such as Firefly (bring it back please) and Farscape.

#4 I am a passionate “do it right”, config management and automation freak.  Its not just my job but also my core in everything I do.  If something is worth doing well, do it right 🙂

#5 Wife challenged me to ride a horse because I kept saying how easy it was when watching her and my daughter.  Ok its not easy!  First a little trotting, bounce as the horse trots they say… bump.. bump.. my ass hurting. Now a little canter… whats that.. oh… more bumping up n down and not in sync with the horse.. and faster.. bump..bump..bump..  I learnt a lot that day and in particular how much I like horses now too 🙂
