Stephen Chapman

The second incarnation of my blog

My name is Stephen Chapman

From a Facebook group I started years ago, I know a few Stephen Chapman’s around the world (some better than others).  As a bit of random fun, here are some responses to the same list of questions from a few of the Stephens. All we have in common is our name…

Notes:  You will see that the other Stephen Chapman’s are younger and better looking than me, but we’re a varied bunch it seems. It’s interesting to see that we are all pretty positive and have some dreams to fulfill.

* I wonder how far down you have to travel from Australia to see the Southern Lights?
** Sounds like a brilliant trip – wonder what the route and timescale was? Thank heavens for low fuel costs in the USA!
*** Intriguing eh?!
**** Not sure where these places are!

    That was a really nice post. Unfortunately my name is ridiculously uncommon. I don’t think there is anyone else sharing it… I really love the idea though
