  2. 1. Live - A bit north of Seattle
    2. Most Memorable Place Visited - Washington, D.C.; specifically the Press Briefing Room at the White House
    3. Favorite Food - hmmm…. Macaroni and Cheese (Kraft version) is always welcome
    4. Favorite Season - I like spring and autumn. Both are nice and cool, sometimes a little warm, rainy or misty … basically, I don’t like superheat, and I love the rain. So, for the most part, the Seattle area is perfect for me!

    8. First thing I’d do with the money if I won the lottery - Honestly, I’d give most of it to charity.
    9. Dream Career - Still trying to figure that one out. Although, if we’re talking about a magical fairy giving me the talent to immediately be good and successful at what I want to do, I’d maybe either be a dancer or a writer.
    10. Olympic Sport - Hmmm…. I’d do the ribbon portion of rhythmic gymnastics. I’m not coordinated enough to do any of the other aspects of rhythmic gymnastics, but I might be able to figure out how to twirl the ribbon. :)

  5. 1. Scotts Valley, CA 2. I’ve lived all over the country and visited a few other countries and love the differences in language, culture, traditions - all of it. It’s always a surprise and not the way we’ve been told about it. 3. Superb Sushi 4. Summer - i love the heat 5. Sadly none and I’m terribly dog hungry, but not in a position to be a pet owner. 6. My mom’s lemon merangue pie, my mom’s cheese cake and chocolate cake with chocolate frosting from The Buttery in Santa Cruz. 7. Reading/listening to books on tape and knitting and ironing. 8. Pay off my debt and get a new Prius. 9. A Naturopathic Pediatrician. 10. I wouldn’t go to the Olympics, but i would be a cheerleader for the Detroit Lions Football Team.

  6. Great idea!
    1. I live in Fremont, CA (formerly from MI, like you!)
    2. My most memorable vacation spot was Spain, but it was mainly the things that transpired on the trip there (like getting proposed to atop the Eiffel Tower by a man I met about 6 hrs prior)
    3. I love vinegar! It’s the only thing that makes my mouth water when I think of it.
    4. Autumn is my favorite! I will miss a MI autumn out here in CA. Nothing better than taking a walk on a cool autumn day, wearing jeans and a sweatshirt…
    5. No pets
    6. Cheesecake is my fav! No toppings. Just plain.
    7. My hobby before my move was going out on patrol as a Reserve Deputy with our local Sheriff’s Department. No hobbies here yet, but I’m scoping out some - like paddleboarding and surfing!
    8. If I won the lottery I would pay off what little debt I have left! Then…I have no idea what I would do. I would probably hold onto it for awhile. Keep it tightly locked away to make sure it was real!
    9. I would definitely continue writing, especially if I was successful…which I will be someday. I’m on my way… :)
    10. In the Olympics, I would be a gymnast. I love their grace and poise and creativity. All of which, I do not have!
