My sincere thanks to Normal Deviations AKA “Dave” for the nomination. It is always a joy to read Dave’s posts in which he shares his unfiltered views on life, love and relationships with unique wit and just the right amount of sauciness and irreverence. His posts are truly refreshing and straight from the heart. They provide a remarkable window into the soul and mind of someone trying to find his way through life, just as we all are. Keep those post coming Dave.
There is such an amazing number of great bloggers that it’s become a full-time job trying to keep up with all of them.

Thanks again Dave for the nomination!
Now, for seven possible unknown things about myself. This is the hard part. As I’m sitting here tying to come up with them, I’m realizing that my life is really not all that interesting or exciting. But I will give it a shot.
- I grew up in Nova Scotia and now live in Los Angeles.
- My mother is the oldest of thirteen children and I have so many cousins that I’ve lost track of most of them.
- My mother and grandmother were pregnant three times at the same time.
- I have an uncle who is two weeks younger than me, an aunt 2 years younger, and another uncle four years younger.
- I personally met the beautiful Elizabeth Taylor who I idolized and, as a child, I wanted her to adopt me – which needless-to-say didn’t sit well with my mother.
- I was diagnosed with stage four prostate cancer nearly five years ago and I’m surviving.
- I came to Los Angeles in 1987, not to be an actor, but to do AIDS/HIV research and conducted some of the first major studies on the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County.
