ABCs of Herb

A lot of the stuff on the “About Me” page is old and/or irrelevant and while digging through the archives I found this. It’s what they used to call a meme and you would get it in your e-mail or read it on someone’s blog and they would tag you. I’m not tagging anybody but in the same breath, if you want to do it and e-mail it to me or if you have a blog and post it, send me a link and I’ll read it. I don’t think I ever posted this on a blog before, but I will leave the original answers and strike-through the ones I change so you can see the difference.

  1. I’ve recently clarified that the proper way to address me is “Mr. Uncle Tony.” It makes sense at work, anyway, but only the person who originated it is actually using it. For shame, people, for shame…
