1. What color do you completely dislike? I have to agree with Cat on that ucky color between green and yellow, whatever that is. However, I'm not too big on pink.

2. What is your birthstone? Emerald and I love them.

3. What is your favorite restaurant? Don't really have one. Guess it would have to be "home."

4. What was your very first car? A disgusting 1965 Rambler American. Hated that car. My favorite car was a 1967 gun metal grey, Oldsmobile Toronado.

5. What was your favorite subject in high school/college? Math.

6. Who is/was a person who inspired you to cook? Never really had/needed inspiration. I've been cooking, out of necessity, since I was 8. In my later years, Julia Child topped my list of inspirations and still does.

7. What type of stove do you have? Gas
8. What is your favorite season? Spring or fall. I come alive when the weather is mild and there is color all around me.

9. What is your favorite piece of furniture in your home? A beautiful, and quite old, bentwood rocker. It has many precious memories of the times I nursed and rocked my children there.

10. Who is your favorite pet? Both cats, Sally and Bella, and our silly dog, Harley. I've had so many animals in my life, it would be hard to choose only one.

I think that was Barbara or Alix. I was left in a wheelbarrow as a baby (and have the picture to prove it )
