Tag - you're it!

The blogger at Shoebox Genealogy has been Tagged, and didn't tag anybody else, so I consider myself tagged and we'll get this meme rolling through the Genea-blogger community. And maybe learn a few things about each other.

** 10 years ago I:

1. was working at Rohr Inc. in Chula Vista, an aircraft manufacturing company, as a Senior Staff Engineer.
2. was a father with one happily married daughter and one wild and exuberant daughter.
3. was enjoying the San Diego Padres last World Series appearance - getting there was a lot of fun, but the Series was a bust.
4. had been doing genealogy research for ten years and thought that I was finished - ha!
5. had recently returned from two trips to Derby in England to support thrust reverser performance tests - and had a great time in Nottingham and surroundings.

** 5 things on today's "to-do" list:

1. Blog a little bit (did it).
2. Go get a haircut (didn't do it).
3. Work on my 8 November presentation and syllabus (did it, almost done!).
4. Read my NGSQ article for my Transitional Genealogist Study Group chat on Thursday night (did it.)
5. Move stuff out of a bedroom closet so my contractor can finish the room (did it).

** 5 snacks I enjoy:

1. Ice cream - chocolate chip, Rocky Road, Dove bars, vanilla frosties, Cold Stone or Marble Slab.
2. Chocolate chip cookies
3. M&Ms
4. Chocolate pudding
5. Grapes, apples and tomatoes.
