1. What’s one thing that’s still the same about you as when you were young?
I thought about this for a long time. My hair is gray under the color job I get. My eyes have both been operated on. My nose no longer resembles the one I had. Even my appendix scar is ‘larger’ than it was at age 3-3/4. But, I still love The Beatles music! Almost any one of their songs can put a smile on my face!
2. What’s more important-history or science? Why?
Oh tough question. Both are incredibly important. Without History we are doomed to repeat our mistakes. But without Science there will not be cures for illnesses, new drugs to treat medical conditions nor will we have advances in cell phone, TVs, or other products.
So I guess in the end, Science. (Although, as I said BOTH are still important!)
3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?
Purple Beans! Ha! They grow a deep aubergine color in your garden. When you cook them they turn a dark green. Their taste is a lot more nutty than a normal bean. But they are delicious!
Our elderly neighbor came down one day as I was setting out my garden, 5 years ago. He handed me a container of dried bean seeds. He told me to grow them. Well I did, and I have been planting them ever since!
4. What’s something people come to your town to do?
Leaf Peep, Boat, Camp, Dine. Fish. Ice Fish. We have so many thing you can do here, all year long. I think that is what makes it so much fun.
5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less.
6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?
New Years Eve in Sydney Australia. They have one of the best firework shows and the city is simply one big party!
7. What’s one piece of advice you’d give a writer?
Allow your hero or heroine to be human. They will be far more interesting, and people will be able to relate to them.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Well, I am still struggling with this virus. I think last night was the hardest. I coughed and coughed and coughed until I almost couldn’t breath. I hope that last night was the turning point.
