If we were all coming to your house for dinner, what would you cook for us?

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?

Pick an era in the 19th or 20th centuries to go back in time to for a month. When did you pick and why?

1. Secretary/Bookkeeper, Production Planner, Accounting Manager. Also took 6 years off to commercial fish!

2. I was born in Washington D.C., but we didn't live there. We moved around a lot, Arizona, South Carolina, Alabama, then Florida. After I married we lived in Hawaii, Connecticut, Florida, back to Connecticut, back to Florida, and now Louisiana. Also lived for short periods in many other places. Sorry you asked now? I could go on.

3. My hero is my Mom. I lost her 11 years ago, and I really miss her.

1. Miss Williams in 4th grade. It was one of those years where you have one teacher for the whole year. She really cared about us all. There was also my first Algebra teacher in high school. I don't remember her name, but she made Algebra easy, and she gave us time to complete our assignments in class and was there to help us if needed. I gained knowledge that has served me well even today.

2. I'd travel to see the Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns, and Yellowstone park. I'd take the train and see all that I could see in a year.

3. Like Andy said, with a smile.

4. I'd love to teach 10 people to make a meal.

GB, I'm going to have to think on that one awhile. I'll get back to you when I come up with a definite answer.

OK while you think about this one here is another. You have lived in a lot of different places. Which was your favorite and which was your least favorite?

Hawaii was probably my favorite. What a beautiful place. The Pali, the Navy Dolphin Training place, lava blowholes. Every month or so my new husband (in the Navy) would drive around the island of Oahu. I spent my 21st birthday at Pearl City Tavern having pizza and beer.

My least favorite place was Florida. I lived in Florida probably the most, but in several time periods. My Mom was from Maine, and we moved to Florida when I was 12. Mom loved Florida and never left except for vacations, so I was always returning to Mom.

I never liked Florida. Too commercialized. Mom's place was on one of the barrier islands of St. Petersburg. It had been a lovely two lane highway island with white sandy beaches and bungalows. Now you can barely glimpse the beach and the Gulf from the 4 lane highway with all the condos crammed on top of each other. Very ugly.

What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
("danger" is subject to your take on the word)

What's the meaning of your screen name?

Do you think that you are generally an optimist or a pessimist?

Do you have siblings, and/or children?
