Community Spotlight - JVH_61

[ Edited ]

Hi guys,

As many of you know, we like to shout about this community and all of you lovely lot who spend lots of time here Smiley Happy

This week is no different and I'm happy to say that its @Anonymous's turn! We asked him some questions in order for everyone to find out a bit more about the man behind the name. So without further ado, enjoy!

 

What's your name and where did you come from?

 I'm John, I was “created” and dragged up in Liverpool. I lived there until Michael Heseltine in the 80’s told me to get on my bike and find work as I became redundant. I lived and worked in Manchester until 2013 when I moved to Rainhill (near Liverpool) as the song goes back to my roots…

 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy up keeping my Koi Pond, great in summer boring in winter… I also enjoy watching (now too old to play) football where my preferred team is Liverpool (not too much fun when living in Manchester)!

 

Why did you join the O2 Community?

When I joined the O2 community I was after help (as most of us do), I found this to be a really good place and I am expanding my knowledge base reading the advice given, hopefully will help people in the long run.

 

What's your favourite thing about it?

The people are great and the advice is really good. Also people who use the community do not give sarcastic answers to silly questions. Everyone is treated with respect.

 

What was your first ever mobile device? 

OMG the Nokia 6110…………………..

 

What is your favourite word?

Need to be polite here J  has to be “HOLIDAY” do love my holidays

 

What sound or noise do you love?

 The KOP singing You’ll Never Walk Alone

 

Which person (living or dead) would you like have a conversation with and why?

 Billy Joel, although I love heavy rock and classical rock. BJ has been an in my music life since 1978(ish) his life has been interesting and varied, his song writing amazing and his attitude to life and love of music second to none. I saw him in concert for the first time this year and he blew me away. LEGEND

 

What is your favourite book?

 I have read all the Discworld books they were all as good as each other Terry Pratchett was another LEGEND

 

What is your favourite sport?

 Football with Cricket as my close second. I was distraught when I stopped playing them both…..

 

Do you have any resolutions for the New Year?

2017 sees me moving to a new job in a new company so my resolution is to succeed at the role and help the company meet their goal of being a World Class Manufacturer

Great spotlight, @Anonymous! I'm interested, what does a Koi pond look like? I'm imagining something like that in my 1st floor flat and it's probably not the same as a normal fish tank...

 

Nokia 6110 brings back memories. I think the 5110 was my first. Smiley Happy

Nice spotlight John, nice to know a little more about you, though I could have done without the Liverpool FC connection.

Strangely enough I spent quite a few years playing cricket round that neck of the woods when I played for Leigh around 25 years ago. Like you my first love is football and whilst I played for the town team, I was much better at cricket, brought up in Radcliffe and played for the juniors where we were coached by none other than Sir Garfield (I'm still dining on the story about when I bowled him out with a peach of a ball that pitched leg and removed the off stump!!)
