1. Who was your favorite teacher in school, and why?

2. If money were no object and you had a year to do anything at all you wanted, what would you do?

3. How do you want to be remembered when you are gone?

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

I like too many books to have a favourite; same goes for authors. It might be a bunch of Terry Pratchtett's Disk World books. Or it might be Isaac Asimov or Robert Schekley. Why, because they write entertaining books that make me think.

2. On Mars or Pluto.

3. Favourite: Solstice supper Last year it was a pork roulade with dried apricots and prunes, Danish red cabbage, garlic butter vegis, mashed potatoes, salad, brown rice, and trifle for dessert.

Least favourite: "leverpostej", a Danish liver pate. It's really messy grinding all that liver and onion and it smells unpleasant until it's baked, but it tastes wonderful.

My father was a half Saami Swede, with a little bit of Norwegian thrown in for good luck. My mother was Danish. I was born in Los Angeles, but spent half a year in Denmark three times before I moved to Denmark for five years.

1. Eight and ninth grade science teacher. I can't remember his name. He always made us think. He really loved teaching and encouraged those of us who showed an interest in learning. I loved his enthusiasm.

2. I would research my family tree and travel to do it. I would also start a non-profit or charity that did research on how to help people start small "green" companies and ways to have profitable, sustainable, local organic agriculture.

3. Fondly

4. Teaching by doing and participation.

I actually worked as a temp for a few months at the Danish company that makes cellular concrete.
