Well this entry is a special one as I have a business man who is affiliated with Maidstone United F.C! Come on you Stones!!!
His name, Terry Casey, 61 years of age from Maidstone.
Terry is currently a company director but most of his time is consumed with his extensive work for a charity he operates in Ethiopia. So good to hear of a Kent resident giving something good to the world. When not involved in his charity work, Terry is heavily involved in with the current construction of the new Maidstone United stadium in Maidstone. Finally the Stones' are coming home and their is a lot of buzz from the people of Kent to see their local team return where they belong after spells in Ashford and Sittingbourne.
Terry does not have much spare time aside from that so understandably he could not comment further on my 'what do you do in your spare time' question.
An interesting fact that I have found out about Kent is that Leeds Castle is sometimes referred to as Ladies’ Castle. The reason being because many Queens of England have lived there Eleanor of Castile Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife and even his daughter Elizabeth all have lived in the castle. Did you know that? Well you do now!
Terry does not eat out in Kent very much but instead prefers to eat out in London. If you want a good place to eat in the capital, I personally recommend you try the Texas Embassy Cantina near Trafalgar Square. This place does awesome Mexican food and superb strawberry margaritas.
When asked to supply me with a story that summed him up, Terry responded "My character should be summed up by others, not by me." This is one of the most intriguing answers I have ever received and Terry is right. Others should decide on our characters, it is not for us to decide what we think we are.
Terry is closely associated with his Irish roots as opposed to his Kentish background and I respect that he could be honest and say that to me. It all to easy for people to just make up a sentence for me to publish about Kent but if they are truly more associated with other places than its better to be honest about it.
And now for my random question, If you could take on the life of any person, past or present, who would it be and why? Terry again gave me another interesting answer.
"I am very happy with myself"
A very good answer, if you are not happy with yourself than you wouldn't be happy being anyone else.
A big thank you to Terry and my very best luck to him and the Maidstone United team for the final stages of the stadium development. I can't wait to see them in action at home!
Keeps those eyes peeled for more interviews, you never know it could be you next!
If you live in Kent, let's talk!
If you would like to appear on my blog, all I ask is that you live in Kent and that you are willing to talk to me for 10 - 15 minutes about yourself.
