Zep from The Insect tagged me with the “7 Random Facts About Me”- meme. The rules are simple:
"Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write their own blog post with their 7 things as well as these rules. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. Remember to leave a comment for them letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog."Here are my random facts:
