I grew up on a rough estate so probably, making something of my life and working hard for a good job whilst school friends did nothing and took drugs.

Thinking back , I could have ended up just like them really so i'm quite proud of that. Suppose i have my parents to thank for that also.

It's a difficult question.

Its either my 3rd place in the Potato Race, 1974 Stockton and Thornaby District Cub Scouts Sports Day or my second place in the Wheelbarrow Race the following year.

On the face of it you would go for the second place, but that was a team event. My third place in the potato race was an individual event, so maybe that counts for more.

Its like those relay golds at the Olympics, they are not as good as an individual gold.

Perhaps I'm looking at it wrongly and I should be gloating over the glory of returning home with a certificate in consecutive years. Thats always harder. Fergie regularly says so about defending the Premier League title.

"In what way have you made something of your life, Ponce?"

Well lisbon, some of my friends from school took drugs, left school, are mid-20's and live with parents in dead end jobs or strugglnig from one job to another.

I own my own Car and I have my own place I have a good job with constant progression in both role and renumeration throughout my 10 years of working and I am further away from the aforementioned than could have been imagined during my early teens.

I think that says that I have made something of my life in terms of where I could have ended up had I stayed with the same group.

Piggy Posted on 21/05/2008 10:07
What is Your Greatest Achievement

Very difficult event Zoec, fiendish mixture of strength sapping endurance, quick acceleration and tactical complexities.

It takes place on the 100 metres track, with a bucket placed at the start line and about half a dozen potatoes sited at 5m intervals down the track. Competitors have to run to a potato, pick it up and run back to the bucket and place it inside. They then repeat it until all the potatoes are in the bucket.

To complicate matters, there is no requirement to get the potatoes in any particular order, which gives you the tactical conundrum of whether to go long or short to begin with.

This does however mean that with people on different strategies (a bit like Formula 1, but quieter) you are never really sure who is winning until the end.

I think this is why it has never caught on as a televised event and I've had to live my life out of the spotlight of professional sport.

Perhaps as a potato executive you could have a word with people in the know. I still have my certificate and am available for consultancy positions.

Lisbon - See Ridsdales Posts... Along with Saudi Ian (whom you also made a sarcastic comment too) I think its a real achievement.

It is very easy as a youngster especially to become embroilled in all that is gonig on around you.

You make these comments yet mention "all the babies with sausage rolls all over Thornaby town centre?" Had i not had the relative "success" I have had so far, I could have been pushing one of them babies around. Although it would have been opast newboulds at Whinney Banks shops and not thornaby.

Middlesbrough council estate to decent job, average car is hardly rags to riches.

I do wonder too about men stating that they brought a child into the world. What really happened is that you have a special cuddle with the mother and let her get all fat and uncomfortable over the next 9 months then watch her give birth then hold the said infant afterwards... you really tried hard on that one didnt you!

Now if you were to say you brought this child up to make the most of their life and be content in it then I could agree that is an achievement.

I grew up on a rough council estate and I escaped (just like Escape to New York but on Teesside). I now have earned enough t buy my own household appliances. And I can drive a milk float. I've made it.

I am the only person to escape the gulag they call Hemlington. Ever.

I will let you into a little secret, ladies like "cuddling " too, depending of course on the person she is cuddling that is. The crying does the mums head in as well, it is supposed to, its designed that way so the baby attracts the attention it needs, it has no other way of communicating. If the mums boobs tingle then I guess its feeding time lol

Talking of bad backs, one of my colleagues has just rang to say she can't make a meeting because she's done her back in. Unfortunately, she's lying flat on her back on the concourse at Heathrow airport. Nobody will move her in case they make it worse so she's waiting for the paramedics to arrive. Apparently she's picked up a nice circle of foreign tourists who want to have their picture taken with her.

Oh, I think the outcome would have been vastly different Lisbon. I have a feeling that the wasp would have been able to pick the spider off at will, choosing when to make it's aerial attacks, and therefore easily winning the contest. I fear that my choice of vessel may have hindered the wasp, which disappointed me because I wanted the wasp to win. Ah well, you live and learn.
