1. I don't think I could pick just one time or place. Sometime in ancient Egypt would be on the top of my list. 1920's in USA would be on the list too. I might just have to pick the week of 8/15/69 at Max Yasgur's farm.

2. You would think this would be an easy one for me to answer, but I think this is the one question I simply do not have an answer for. I have tasted too many delicious things in my life. There is no way I could even come close to picking.

3. If I know you and love you then I have and do look to you for advice.

Yes Babe I am a reader. I love to read. Ans since I got my Kindle a few years agao I have been reading more than ever. I do not have a favorite author, but I like mostly fiction. This year I would guess I have read 10-15 books. I do not have a lot of time to read, but I will get in a few pages almost every day.

If you could meet anyone (for the first time), living or dead, who would it be and what question(s) would you ask them?

Would you get more satisfaction from preparing a perfect meal for ten people or from teaching those ten people how to prepare that meal?

That one is easy. It would be my grandmother on my fathers side. She passed away before I was born and I have always wanted to know her. She was the only grandparent I did not get to know.

I have heard many stories about her and she sounds like a fascinating and hilarious woman. I will share two of my favorite stories here that show why she is who I would pick.

It was the 1950's and she and my then young Aunt were downstairs in the basement of their NY home ironing. It was summer and very very hot. They did not have A/C so grandma decided to iron naked to try to beat the heat. The doorbell rings and grandma goes to answer to just as she is. My aunt yells "MOM are you going to answer the door just like that???" Oh you are right she says and goes and puts on a pair of boots sitting by the door and then answered it.

Grandma never knew how to swim. Once summer they were at the local public pool and she decided that she wanted to learn. So she climbed to the top of the high dive board, even though there was a low dive there. Her family yelled at her asking what she was doing. She said "There are lifeguards here. If I can't do it then they will save me." She then proceeded to jump off the high dive without hesitation and doggy paddle to the side.

What would I ask her? I would just want her to tell me anything she felt like telling me. Anything that came out of her mouth would be gold to me I am sure.

I would probably get more satisfaction from doing the cooking myself just because I enjoy cooking more than I enjoy teaching. I think it would also depend on who I was teaching though. If I were teaching my kids it might be a different story.

Oh man that is simply impossible to answer. You sure did get me back. I could possibly narrow it down to maybe 100 songs, but 3, not a chance.
