1. My family means more to me than the air I breath.

2. I'm extremely selective in who I allow into my life. I have 4 very dear girlfriends that I trust with all my heart. We'd go to the end of the earth for each other. However, I have many acquaintances and people that I associate with.

3.. When we go for a country drive we look for horse poop along the road to determine if the Amish are out and about and then track them down.......

4. I was the Queen of my Hometown in 1980 or was that 1981.....

5. I've have a fear of flying. I can't even go watch the planes land or take off . Found this out when I volunteered to take one of my dear friends to pick up her brother . Thankfully, not the airport no longer lets you go up to the area where you can see them come in and land.

1. I am a huge water sports fan (sailing canoing, kayaking, swimming, water-skiing, etc.) and used to run a white water canoe trip in upstate Maine for 11-14 year old boys from my camp.

2. I live for music. My wife asked me the other day which I love more, music or food. I was unable to answer.

3. I once participated in the worlds largest (at the time) nude photo. I thought it would be awkward, but it wasn't. What was awkward was that HBO happened to be filming a special on the photographer (we did not know this) and many months later people at the office were coming up to me telling me they saw me (all of me) on HBO. For some reason, of all the people there (over 1,000) the camera zoomed in on my about 5 times. Thankfully the only time the camera lingered on me only acceptable parts were showing

4. I someday want to learn how to play the guitar even if I am 100 years old.

5. I love the tropics and that is where I would be if money were no object.

1. After 25 years of marriage, I'm still madly in love with my husband.
2. I've always had a dog in my life.
3. I was born, raised, live and will die in Hawaii.
4. Like goodgiver, first comes God, Family, Koapaka (my dog) and friends.
5. If someone or something gave me a good laugh, it's a good day.

  1. I'm semi-retired/unemployed and that's OK
  2. I had a heart attack and died in May of 2003. I was fortunate to have a paramedic and defibrilator handy at the time.
  3. I used to be a LOT more anal retentive than I am now. I've come to accept that others can succesfully load the dishwasher.
  4. I love my two daughters dearly but suffer silently over their complete lack of interest in cooking.
  5. I don't bake much at all. My S. O., Suzanne is generally in charge of that and me.
