    Default Anyone got a little claim to fame

    I thought seen as though there are some very talented people here on web-building etc...Has anyone one got any other small claims to fame.

    Have you met a famous person? Won any medals? Won the lottery? Any little claim to fame will do.

    I will start the ball rolling with mine.

    When I was at school I broke the school javelin record and won my school sports day 3 years on the trot. 13 years old..WOW..that takes me back.

    In 1978 my husband and I and 5 children drove a 24 foot motorhome from California to Brazil. We were the first ClassA motorhome to cross from Panama into South America. Also made the front page of the newspaper in Curitiba, Brazil. See http://www.movingon1.com/newspaper.html

    Raced with Lewis Hamilton for quite a few years, the new Formula 1 driver for Malaren racing. This may sound grand, but it was back when I was karting & he was a cadet driver at the time. This is means he was about 12 year old at the time & I was in the older heavy weight division. We called it TOG racing. (The old gits) Had some good times though.
    Take my hat off to his father! Real nice guy & was always there for him. He should give some really interesting races this year if he has the right equipment.

    Talking Re: Anyone got a little claim to fame

    I may be new here but my claim to fame is that I used to be in an Alice Cooper Tribute Band in Phoenix AZ, we once did a benefit concert for Mr Alice Cooper himself. I have met him 2 other times along with Rob Halford from Judas Priest and a few others, other than that I would have to say no.

    err.........I've been on television, in newspapers, I deal with the people who work with the rich and famous. Met Dee Snyder, The Undertaker, JP Bordello, Cathy Jones, a few others. Some of our costumes were worn by famous people, I have those pieces tagged. Alot of our costumes are on tv for various events etc. It's pretty cool.

    Hello. This, my first post to the forum, will 'date' me without question. But being an older lady doesn't take away from the achievements of a life time. I was the first woman teacher to wear a pair of pants to work at our local school -- pants were not part of the dress code until then. I was the first woman to work as a rural letter carrier out of a small post office where I worked in that position until retirement -- the postal patrons didn't know what to call me (my 'title') and there was an older gentleman who just gave up and called me 'Miss Baby'. I loved it. One of the funniest 'firsts', or claims to fame, that maybe should be embarrassing was the note included with my diploma which I received in the mail after choosing to forgo the ceremony of graduation. The note was from the professor who had acted as my advisor. It said, "Congratulations. You have the distinction of haveing received the lowest grades ever to have received this degree." I hope that one was good for a few laughs from you guys. Am looking forward to being a part of this community.

    lol Choco ... I actually had forgotten about this and didn't see your post until a few more posts were made tonite ... lol

    Well as CL touched on with the costume shop, one where I worked and managed for 17 of my years, a family business, which I parted to do my own thing about 5 years ago now, there were several telelvision interviews, radio interviews, newspaper interviews and in fact I would say the costume shop has it's own Claim to Fame as the inventor of the formal MardiGras which happened for about 10 straight years in the downtown area of Halifax. The formal event is obsolete now, however Halloween is big here .. And meeting the Undertaker was at a hotel iin Chicago ... yes quite a nite, eh CL!

    But Choco, the one in which I was referring to was when a Local MLA was involved in a scandal. I'll keep the names out of it. In any event, a local news reporter had decided he would "Dress UP" as a convict, get his own picture taken in this outfit in front of province house in Halifax, and then write up a news story as if it were someone else creating this news. Well of course, police and the politician involved were more than curious to know who this guy was. This guy left me with a phony name, number, etc., and I clued into this as he was doing so. So I quickly made mental notes about him and the vehicle he was driving, and by doing this, this would be "News Maker" was nabbed, and well I did feel kind of bad as he did lose his job.

    Other things in Sports, Three Years Running for Most Home Runs in the Softball League, with teams amount to 10. Chosen to play on Softball Allstar Team.

    Hockey - Initiated and started the first "Girls" high school hockey team within my high school and I got the very first goal of anyone in High School as well.

    Coaching - I've coached little league teams in softball and assisted with hockey coaching.

    Fan - Chosen #1 Fan of the Year during some of the Central Minor Days.

    My Son - My son was held and cared for by a highly recognized Television News Reporter when he was 3 days old.

    And the best!! - I had my son on the 12th of September, after working day and night on the 11th and reported back to work on the 16th of September for good!
    Now that's A "Claim to Fame" lol .... whether anyone thinks so or not ....

    Tidbits about Me!!

    Teri ...

    You will find it quite often as you go through life, someone is always there to take credit for something you have done .... it does bother you, believe you me, I've lived it ... however, you get over it and build your self-esteem from it ... you know what you can do and you don't need any roses to prove it or otherwise ... right!! And your day will come when you might not even recognize it ...

    lol Teri ... exactly ... it's all what "YOU" make it right ...

    It's all the perspective in which you give yourself ... makes things your own joys and success stories ... cause if you don't, guess what, not alot of others will ... you'd be lucky or even the best optimist in the world if you thought you'd get credit for everything you do.

    Paul ... It was showing the support and cheering the team on whether we lost or won, it was doing the little things (mind you, I always did go all out) but doing the things that made those young hockey players feel important, feel like they wanted to win, feel like they had the support.
    I even waved "licorice" from the stands to some of them, because they would score more goals if they new Holly was buying them licorice.
    I would make them painted name tags, I would make painted flags and huge banners to hang behind the bench, and huge banners for in the stands, I would bring wigs for all team parents to wear, I'd have cheerleader meetings, I'd take photos, videos, bring horns, squeekers, megahorns, I'd arrange for them to be on Breakfast Television. I mde them all their own mini hockey sticks out of wood, painted individually with team colors, their names, their numbers added the nob at the top of the stick with black tape, and around the blade, just as a real stick would be. CL helped me with those, all done individually. I made them each, all hand designed, out of wood, 8 x 10" plaques, with vinyl "gold" stick on letters with their names, year, name of team, "claim to fame" and team picture, and their provincial badge, that not many have opportunity to win in their life, but we did, and I'll bet you every single one of those boys have their plaque and their mini stick to this very day. I could go on and on, with what I used to do. And I loved it ...
    But, the best of what I did was that I made them feel like Winners - Win or Lose, and we did alot of "winning" that way ...

    Now that's some fan Holly.

    I am sure they all appreciated it, its great to have a passion about something and yes to make each one feel special.

    I wish I could have hired you last night, we got thrashed at football : (

    I know its not about winning all the time....just once would do.

    Oh actually.. I just had a thought.. I have a myspace account (saddd) That people all over the world can view. That makes me famousss!

    Whats the address Teri? I could post a comment on there, if you would let me.

    Wow Holly! In all the sporting events I've been in my lifetime including when I was younger, when my boys were in sports, and YES( I too played on a womens softball team and a co-ed team), I don't think I have ever seen a fan do what you have described. You can be on my Team any time you want! (So what position did you play in softball?...I played center field and 2nd on the womens team and catcher on the co-ed team. The last time I played was on the co-ed team, just about to put someone out at home plate...here comes the ball from the 1st baseman...yes...I've got it, we're going to get the out.....BAM!! Right on my nose!! My fault...I was about an inch out of balance and my nose caught the ball instead. We ended up having to forfeit, because there was no one to replace me. Yep...broken, crushed, smashed was my nose and so to the hospital, surgery the whole nine yards. Haven't played since) lol

    omg .... you are my twin ... I too had a broken nose from softball, lmao ... in a tournament, in an afternoon game and well the ball came to me and at the last second before I grabbed it it bounced up and broke my nose, I can remember my sister, the udder one, when I asked her, okay, how bad is it, she said, oh not too bad, and when I looked in the mirror, my nose was all across my face, lmao .... I can't believe you girl ... this is too great!! You know what, that was pretty much my last too .... We Nose, we were Shocked Right??? lol ... that's unbelievable ... I did go to the hospital, they had to snap it back in place, no surgery and no problems. Nosey aren't we ... lmao Oh, and a few sprangled ankles to boot!! Stiches to the knee and a broken finger, lol ....

    I played short stop and sometimes third, mainly ss tho. Fastball and softball. Really liked the fastball cause when you got a piece of that sucker it really went ... loved it, loved it, loved it. Had my own bat!!
    Still have it!! Now tell me Cindy, "Scuba Dive"????

    And I too did enjoy my "fan" days, really only gave that up 6 months ago ... it's all over now, well it may start again next year, we will see ... I'll take some shots of some of my stuff I've made, it's pretty good, and it definitely added the spirit!! I loved it .. can't tell you how many times I had laryngitis .. lmao ...

Couple of ankle sprains landing on sprinkler heads in the "outfield" as a child, multiple jammed fingers from chasing grounders playing 2B and SS.. .. occupational hazards..

    I knew we had a lot in common!! Nosey broken noses...lol Like you and Liz, yup I had some sprained ankles to. When I broke my nose, it just bled alot. Never bruised or swelled. About a week after that happened, I was talking to my brother and he HIGHLY suggested I have it checked. He was the Center on his High School football team and so he wrote the book on broken noses. Sure enough...went to the doctor, was sent straight to surgery. I really hadn't noticed that it was broken into a million pieces, deviated septum, etc. It didn't even hurt. I guess I handle pain pretty well.

    Scuba Diving??? Well, I have tried it. (1st husband was a Navy Seal so he had all the gear when we got married) So I of course had to try it. But I have always had MAJOR ear problems, lots and lots of surgeries on my ears, they have been rebuilt, mastoid problems, no middle ear bones, etc. I call myself the bionic woman because I have so much titanium in there. Now if only I could hear like her, I'd be good to go. Soooooo No I don't Scuba Dive anymore, the pressure just won't allow it. How about you? in Canada??

    So how about Sky Diving, Holly..have you ever tried that??

    I remember playing tiddley winks, mankala, pick up stix and jacks when I was a kid!

    These days, we like to go in our Motorhome up in the mountains and go 4 wheeling with our neighbors. I really enjoy getting those things going as fast I can (I think a whole 35 miles and hour) then I like to find the little hills to jump. That's about the extent of my real excitment these days......lmao

    oh wow Cindy, I'll say you "handle pain" I can remember very clearly - didn't hurt when it happened, about 6 hours later it was very very painful ... and you went a week, geesh ... you must have had that gin Liz was talking about ... ooohhh ...

    Just knew you must have tried the scuba diving, I could feel it all the way here, lol ... yes in Nova Scotia, although you may think the scenery underwater here is not as great as say down south with all the pretty coral rocks etc., it is still very interesting, (funny though, some of those large rocks used to frighten me, Iused to think there was a shark behind them, our waters are okay for that though, too cold for any of the biters for the most part anyway) - shipwreck diving, is real cool. Although the best for pleasure diving in that respect are those wrecks that are only at about '50 - '60 feet, not so dark right ... And of course, my favorite depth was below the '33 mark ... no worries and hassels of times and decompression. 45 minutes or so was about the longest I would stay, was plenty time for a couple of divers to bring up 100 lbs of the finest nova scotia scallops ... yes sir. You'll notice I say "was", I don't do it anymore, takes someone in top physical condition, young, etc., and it was always difficult too finding a partner, never dive alone right. I used to belong in the clubs. We used to go every Sunday, treasure hunting, was always alot of fun. And I tell you, I never felt better in my life than I did after a 45 minute dive. Talk about reviving yourself, it was incredible, must have been all that air in the tank, lol .... No problems with my ears or nose, however, had seen many people with their mask full of blood ... Not anymore. One of my worst experiences was when a young boy was a vicitim of a drowning accident and they called a few of us to dive for the body. And yes, Cindy, we found him, resting on the floor of the lake, curled up in a little ball, it was something I will never forget. Awful. That was the one and only time I did that ... never again ..

    Sky Diving, I went once, went with a group of 7 people. Cost was $75.00, I paid my $75.00 sat through the two or three hour course and wouldn't go ... lmao ... I believe that was the day I discovered I had a fear of heights. Yes, I was already excited and everything and I turned CHICKEN!! lmao ... was a while living that down, let me tell you ...

    Hey you two!! I was going to send Holly an email, but I think I'll post the cruise details on the forum. Just trying to find the right place. Maybe under the classified section! What do you think?

    Holly..have you never been on a cruise ship before? If not, they are fun. The cost of the cruise includes all the food on board (with a few exceptions), like an all inclusive vacation! Anyway, I'll post the details somewhere and then if anyone is interested they can email me. But I have a deadline and just a few spots left. I'll try and get that posted yet tonight.

    Yea Liz...I'll put it up tonight... all the details...

    When I was 10 I was a Yo-Yo champion... lots of tricks, two handed and everything, youngest one in state competition (didn't win, though,was really scared and then broke a string and cried...sensitive child, doncha know....ended up 5th, I think..)
    Still can do some tricks, though, oddball talent, yes?

    Wow, no not oddball at all, that's pretty cool being the youngest, I tried the yo-yo, not good at it at all, my brother faired ok, not good enough to be in a contest. 5th? That's an accomplishment. Good stuff Liz!
