Seven (7) Things about Myself:
1-    I used to own a computer repair business.
2-      I served a two year mission in Rio De Janiero, Brasil.
3-      I met my wife on a Sunday was engaged two weeks later, married two months after that and pregnant with my first son two months after that. Don’t worry we are happily married almost twelve years later J.
4-      I have four wonderful children.
5-      I wrote my first novel two years ago. Previously I had never thought about writing in fact the only class I have ever come close to failing was English.
6-      I love salt water Aquariums and this year finally got one. It is a 55 gallon tank. I built my own overflow and sump for it. I have a sea cucumber, banded coral shrimp, cleaner shrimp, yellow tang, a nemo fish, several other fish, and a hitchhiker worm thing that my wife can’t stand to look out.
7-      I love the writing community and am amazed at how supportive it is. Of all the professions I know this is by far the most supportive I have belonged to.

Thanks for this award and to all those who support me in various ways. Have a wonderful Thursday and I will be stopping by other blogs later today.

  3. Congrats on the award! Salt water aquariums are so pretty, I love the fish that you can get for them versus fresh water.

  7. Thanks for all the comments it is so wonderful to see all of you and read your kind words.
    I agree MJ they are beautiful although I went to a friends who has a bunch of tanks and he had a really cool fresh water setup.
    Chris - ditto :)
    Lindsay - I would love to go back but it was a little scary at times.

  9. The seven things were fun...that must have been one heck of a first year of marriage/adjustment period. :-)

    Congrats on the award!

  10. Do you have to be careful about mentioning that you had a computer repair business? I reckon it'd be like telling people you're a doctor, they'd suddenly want free advice on their illnesses :)
