Rustic Recluse has been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger award and has kindly nominated my blog for same. If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Rustic’s blog, I recommend that you check it out:
Dear Rustic Recluse: Congratulations on being nominated for this award and thank you for nominating my blog. I’m humbled and honored at receiving this award. As I have received this award multiple times before, and I mention and list many blogs on an on-going basis including at least 70 at a time on my home page via their avatars, I hereby acknowledge you and your blog for honoring my blog and I will mention 7 things about myself that I hopefully haven’t mentioned earlier. Hopefully that is in keeping with the spirit of the award.
Seven Things You May Not Know About Me:
I’m the oldest of five siblings, all living, two of each of each gender.
I was in the high tech recruiting and recruiting research profession for about 30 years and self-employed for about 25 of them
I recruited 69 Americans to work on 2- to 3-year contracts in the Netherlands.
Two of my relatives have been bitten by rattlesnakes and both survived–one without receiving the anti-venom.
My dad used to ride in rodeos and a niece still does.
Sadly, I look like a sack of potatoes when riding a horse. It is not a pretty sight.
My Beloved and I completely switched careers at the same time–an action I don’t recommend as it was financially jarring–and we are both much happier having done so. (If a couple has an option it would probably be better in most cases for one person at a time to change careers while the other keeps a revenue stream and hopefully their benefits plans until the career-changer gets traction in their new profession.)
