    In college I played free safety on a conference championship football team in 1977, I also graduated with honors. Used my degree for 4 years then went into the oil and gas industry.

    I learned to drive stick in a '67 Beetle with a rebuilt engine.
    It could put down six feet of rubber with both tires and topped out at 97mph.
    I once passed a '70ish 440 Challenger in it at around that speed.

    Shoulda seen the look on the drivers face!

    Just sold a built up 454, should seen the look on my face as it rolled away from my house!

    In a couple weeks, I’ll be getting married for the first time in my life.

    At 40 years old with kids and previous good and bad relationships, I feel like I am finely in a position to know that this is a good thing for me. I hope I am right.

    One of my uncles was, until his passing several years ago, the oldest living Eagle Scout.

    The local County Courthouse has the oldest surviving set of land deeds in the US, with rooms stacked with big hand written leather bound books recording every parcel's ownership dating back to the early 1600s.

    I've pawed through some of the books to check land ownership history of parcels near my house.
    Included is payment records in the early history which was sometimes stuff like traded two mules and a store bought shovel for a ten acre parcel.

    The reason I looked into the stuff was related to the local beach, which the State sold to developers without informing the Town, then the Town got upset and managed to buy the beach back before it was developed into house lots. That was in the 1800s.
    The next town beach is all house lots right on the ocean.
    It was a pretty unusual event for a town made up mostly of family fishing businesses and a few farmers.
    Speaks to the old adage that you can't fight city hall!

    I pulled a guy out of a flaming car wreck on the way home from a gig a couple of years ago. I was wearing a suit.

    I went to the George Harrison concert in 1974 at the forum in Inglewood, California. Thanks to my Cuban friend who loved the Beatles and I’m sure organized this.

    I remember him singing Dark Horse which is sort of tough to play.

    I used to build hermetically sealed relays that mounted under the pilot seat of an F16 and armed the wing ordinance.

    Jason Schayot, a Texan, holds the world record for spitting a watermelon seed.

    He set the record of 75 ft., 2 inches (22.911 meters) on August 12, 1995 at the De Leon Peach and Melon Festival.

    I think that is impressive, because I’m thinking I could hit 20 feet if I tried really hard.

    There is an island of plastic waste the size of Texas floating in the Pacific. It is so big scientists tracking it discovered dogs living on it.
