I've Been Tagged

For those who have many swimsuits and other triathlon equipment that constantly needs washing and drying, it is best to have a nice big lanai on the top (5th) floor of the house. Here there is a good breeze plus running water and a washing machine and everything can be attached to hangers and hoisted up so that they are well out of everyone's way. Shoes can be left here to dry (if wet), otherwise the garage downstairs will do.

OK, since several people have tagged me today, here it is. If you read this, you may want to do one yourself.

10 years ago
I worked in Taipei and occasionally made trips to Palau, Guam and Saipan.
5 years ago
I was enjoying Peaman and Mango biathlons and triathlons in Hawai'i, but still only had a junk bike.
1 year ago
We left Hawaii and returned to live in Taipei

5 things to do today
Prepare more food for today's feeding
Continue to sort things and tidy my office
Finish at least one job I am working on today
Write my real blog report for the day
Go to bed early so I can swim well tomorrow

5 snacks I enjoy
Granola and milk
Bananas, pineapples, dragon fruit or mango
A piece of Toblerone chocolate
Potatoes
Home made soya bean milk

If I were a billionaire, I would:
Invest in a guest house in Hanalei Bay, Kauai so weary triathletes could rest there.
Donate some money to medical research.
Become a venture capitalist to help Bree achieve billionaire celebrity status (and resolve her running shoes by the front door problem).
Entrust most of it to Bill and Melinda and let them decide what to do with it.
Continue to live in my current house, eat potatoes, do my usual work and swim every morning (the race is only 12 months away now).

6 people I want to have lunch with tomorrow:
My wife and two sons (as long as I can eat my potatoes), Harry (in Kona), Brown Bear, and the Dolphin Boy.

5 places I have lived (all a long time):
Surrey, England
Norwich, England
Taipei, Taiwan
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Kaohsiung, Taiwan

5 jobs I have had:
Golf caddie
Accountant
Chamber of Commerce Executive Manager
Economics editor and translator/interpreter (Chinese)
Bible school teaching staff

There is no time like the present!
