Five 5 Five 5 Five

Kcinnova listed me among the five in the last of the 5 below, so I’m playing Five 5 Five 5 Five, too.

What were you doing 5 years ago?

Five years ago I was the pastor of Christ Church (in Louisville) and attempting to establish a program for homeless women and children.

Five Snacks I enjoy:

1. Pretzels

2. Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

3. Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies

4. Yogurt mixed with peaches

5. Pop corn

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire…

1. Give 99% of the money away

2. Re-purchase my home

3. Travel and more travel all over the world

4. I haven’t the slightest idea

5. Same as above

Five places I have lived:

1. Louisville, Kentucky

2. Lexington, Kentucky

3. Marlow Heights, Maryland

4. Schweinfurt, Germany

5. St. Louis, Missouri

Five jobs I have had:

1. golf course greensman

2. bartender

3. army officer

4. social worker

5. clergyperson

And finally, 5 people I want to know better:






(and everyone else on my blog roll!)

Ya’ll come back tomorrow for:


  1. Very interesting, Rev Saint. I shall certainly return tomorrow.

  2. Dear Nick ~~ Good set of Fives and also the jokes were good on Monday.
    Thanks for sharing them with us.
    I am glad you liked the story of Rose. She was an amazing old lady.
    I hope your week is going well, all OK here. Take care, Regards, Merle.

  3. Thanks for playing, Nick! I smiled when I read you'd been a bartendar.
    Schweinfurt? (said with the 'w' as a 'v') Can I assume this was with the Army?
    And your work with Bridge of Hope sounded like a heart ministry for you.
    I'm glad for the chance to know you beter!

  4. Doing some quick math, giving away 99% of $1B would leave you with $10M. Not too shabby, eh?

    Think of all the cat food and kitty toys THAT could buy?

    The funny part of this post is, I think just from reading your blog for the short while that I have, I already knew most of that about you. Secretive, you are not!

    Have a great day, dear Nick.

  5. yo nicholas, chuffed i'm in your top five! if you lived in england i would invite you round for tea. you could bring alex although he might have a bust-up with wills ... and then there's ronnie, the house bunny ... he chases wills off every time despite being half his size.

  6. This is an interesting one. I am having trouble thinking up 5 different jobs I have had that are not really variations on the same theme.

  7. That's a great list Nick and I love your Peace Globe, mine's all set for tomorrow too.

  8. Nick I like your set of fives.

    I hope that you are haveing a Great Day,that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  9. You have made a very nice set of five fives. I took pleasure in reading them. The song in Your Mind Today is wonderful. It is new to me and I have listened to it twice and plan to download it. Thank you, sir!

  10. Lovely fives! And thanks for the Monday laughs -- I was on holiday yesterday, but now that I'm back at work, I certainly needed them today. :)

  11. I'm tellin ya have probably led THE most interesting life of anyone I know!!

  12. What always shines through no matter what you post about Nick is your giving nature. I've always believed that giving away is better than keeping. In the end, it all seems to come back one way or the other.

  13. I have to second you vote on pop corn and famous amos cookies. Those are great.

  14. Only you would give away that much money!

  15. Trying to catch up with my blog reading and found my name! Thanks Nick!

    I enjoyed reading your answers!

  16. Famous Amos makes the best choc chip cookies.

  17. Now I'm going to need a snack whilst I read the jokes...


  18. I came for the Blogblast for Peace but I now realize that it is not June 4 yet where you are located. I will be back!
