So, I answered a thread by Angelic about music and ended up talking of my heoroines, through my life. I thought it might be fun if we swapped who we adore and maybe further in, who we really dislike and why! I am sure we covered this on the old board and I contributed, but I think that was limited to three people that ya most wanted to be. Here, talk of many as ya like.

Well I already spoke of my heroines, the media based ones anyway, so Mary Tyler Moore, Suzi Q et al. And I mentioned my sporting heroes, that'll be Annika Sörenstam, Rachel Heyhoe-Flint and Alex Blackwell among others.

But heroes? Well, Greg Norman and Fred Couples must figure, I loved those guys. Then there is Rafael Nadal..... yes, then, there is Rafael Nadal.... ladaladadadada….,..... Embarassed sorry, I was simply miles away there.......  Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors. In football, George Best, Willie Morgan and..... nearly feints.... Pat Jennings, who has huge hands!

Other heroes? None in politics, maybe Churchill and F. Roosevelt make the grade for beating the Nazi wankers. I love the royals, Harald, Sonja and Princesses Märtha, Mette-Marit and Prince Haakon and their families. And of course, Elizabeth, Philip, Charles, Andrew, Anne, Edwars and their families. I love Meghan, Kate and the boys!!!! George, Charlotte and Louis too!


So put ya favourites on and share who influences you. Who inspired you? Who are your heroes? Who gives ya the creeps..... oh God, I know who'll come top there! Here's the place to let us know! Celia xx

I'm excluding friends and family as somewhat obvious.

My heroes/heroines would be.

Carl Sagan, as I am more scientist than anything else, specifically cosmologist.
Frank Herbert, creator of the greatest science fiction literature I have ever read.
Tolkien, creator of the greatest epic fantasy I have ever read.
Terry Goodkind, creator of the greatest fantasy villains I have ever experienced.
Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery, Susan Wiggs, and Sherryl Woods whose romance novels have woken in me the woman I wish to be.
Bob Ross, the inspiration for the artist in me.
Kim Petras (more an idol than a heroine to me).
Dr. Pierre Brassard, who rescued me from death (because without GRS I was going to kill myself).

Of all the people who have passed on, I miss Carl Sagan the most.

Hero:
a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
I could list a bunch of people like you have done above, but my hero is a guy named Joe G. You will never have heard of him but he hung with me and supported me when against everything published and what everyone was saying about a very difficult land deal - he believed in my solution and how I proposed to put the deal together.

Over 150 different real estate developers showed up for the property when it was put on the market by the U.S. Army. The Army's terms would not work and because of my vision and Joe's great support, we convinced both our senior management and the Army to look at our proposal and when we presented the proposal it was accepted on the spot.

Together, Joe and I put together the largest Real Property Exchange in the Defense Departments history. The value of the exchange was closed to $100,000,000. It took Joe and I and a couple of other team members 35 months to put the deal together - but WE DID IT!

Joe is one of only two people who know about Miki from my previous business life. I trust him that much. He is my hero.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

Yes! <3

If people want to call me an over-the-top Tolkienista, then so be it. What a Face

"Joe is one of only two people who know about Miki from my previous business life. I trust him that much. He is my hero."

Those are the priceless people in our lives. The ones that love and respect us and prove it through action and not tongue wagging.

You know I don't have any heroes or heroines. They always let you down. I admire certain people. There's a woman, a Ryanair pilot who I admire. Best pilot I ever flew with. I remember the day of her Instrument rating. I flew with her among others to the test. She doubted herself as women do but I put my arm around her and told her she was great. She passed easily. If I was the only one who said that about her then I was simply a friend but many others have said the same, men and women. So I guess she is a hero.


Others I'm not so sure, perhaps working class women generally, those who work their asses off and bring up kids and put up with their useless husband or ex. I've met a few over the years. Perhaps my sisters who to be fair had good husbands but who still controlled the houses when they were away doing their thing. Perhaps my wife's sisters who mostly married beneath themselves to good men, yet men who were simply not even close to them intellectually and professionally. Yes me too. My wife is something special.


So no heroes except everyday heroes. My lovely wife and her family.

Oh Angel!

Well, so much in a short statement! So, it is good that you have pride, to look down at others, it shows you do actually respect lots about yourself and that is good! I like me lots, I know I don't hurt anyone or animals and that's good enough for me!

Everyone lets you down? Give folk a chance!!!!! I am sure there is someone out there for you and if you go into any kinda relationship thinkin' they'll let you down that's going to be a bad start, you really should know there are people out there that won't let you down....

Finally zero heroes? I can't believe that! Surely someone, even fictional, you must think, hey, I'd like to be her! I certainly do sometimesthough as I say I like me and you look down on everyone, so perhaps your hero could be you! Celia xx

Oh Anna!

Great choice, I missed this somehow, sorry hun! She was amazing and stood up against the Nazi wankers as did many of my ancestors, Norwegian and English. I read about her just now, she was truly great...

Well, reason I revisited here was to wish RIP for one of my heroes, a very nice, unassuming man, an English legend. I do know, by word of mouth, Gordon Banks was a true Gentleman and a very nice man. He's career was cut short by an awful car accident where he lost an eye. He died the other day and I have never heard a bad word said, ever, about this wonderful man...
