Just a quick hello from Calgary. Wishing you all the best on your journey. Congratulations to you for taking time for yourself and joining and committing to Tools for life, I'm a newby too!!!
MistrTim Southernwood, Family man, father of four girls, husband to Patricia, Internet Marketing Entrepeneur, Business Owner, Blogging enthusiast, and if you can believe it, full time employee at the University of Alberta. (just do a search and you'll see ;-) ) Raising the level of my game to new heights, working on ridding myself of the self defeating limitations that I've placed on myself. Grateful to have found this incredible place. Can't wait to get to know more of you here. Please invite me as your friend.
Tools and Devlyn came to my life at the right time and because I was in the right place. I believe in self improvement, and I was on a call with Devlyn that led me here. I joined because it felt right.
You are offered your dream job. What job is it?:
Tough one. I've been in "jobs" my whole adult life, and I've pretty much run the gamut. My "dream job" is not a job, but Ownership of my own corporate endeavor.
My favorite wild animal is:
Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, and Owls.
Why (describe as much as possible):
They are noble creatures, with keen vision, an upright and proud stance, symbols of strength and power, and they're fast to act on their opportunities.
My favorite domestic animal is (if you choose dog be specific with breed etc):
I love dogs. All dogs. I'm a dog (born in the year of the dog. My favorite breeds are the working dogs, the retrievers, and the herders. They possess keen intelligence and tend to be the best family pets as well.
Barring those breeds, I think I'd go for a Jack Russel.
A more loyal friend you'll never find. The beauty of a dog to me is no matter the size, they are 100 percent dog.
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
His most elaborate specialty dish.
1. The Chef got to be famous for his originality.
2. Variety is the spice of life. If I always choose what I'm familiar with, I'll never experience new and possibly wonderful things.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
King Solomon, Shakespear, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, Oliver Golden Southernwood
Shakespear to entertain us with his famous storytelling, Edison to invent amazing new drinks for us, Winston to never surrender and to drink us all under the table, and Solomon to remind us all of his wisdom and to remind us NOT to drink and drive ;-)
Oliver and I would sit back and watch the three, and discuss our family history, past present and future, Oliver being the grandfather I never knew.
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
My perfect slice of pizza is:
Deep dish pepperoni, mushroom, and green pepper, with extra cheese
You are at a bar. You order this drink:
Tall glass dark run and coke
You are at a coffee shop. What coffee or tea do you order:
Irish Cream Coffee, or Orange Pekoe Tea
If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
Good Health, Happiness, and Understanding
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
James Taylor's Greatest hits, Gordon Lightfoot's Greatest hits, The Beatles Greatest hits
If I could do anything for my neighborhood today, it would be:
Throw a great big block barbeque party with everyone invited, and a full range menu, so that we could all get together and get to know each other better.
A sunset I remember:
How beautiful, amazing, and vast this world is
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
John J. Dunbar, from Dances with wolves.
John left "civilization" and came to the fort, met the natives and learned to see them for what they really were. Honorable, loyal, and good living people, in harmony with their world. He learned the simplicity and the "rightness" of their ways to the extent that he adopted those ways as his own and bridged a barrior in a way that we all should attept. To see others for the good and decent people that they are and learn to understand and accept them and their place in this world.
