Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?
I was a Boy Scout. Always Prepared. At least when it comes to gas in my car’s tank.
Which are better: black or green olives?
I am culinarily inept… I do not know the difference. I know I find them on pizza occasionally. (I hope I have not offended any olive lovers?)
If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?
If I were a billionaire and could spend a month out of each year to explore, I would explore history. My first three cultures to explore would be the Early Egyptians, the Early Mayans, and the Early Romans.
Since I am not a billionaire, I must explore with books. Allow me to quote Thomas Jefferson… “I cannot live without books.”
Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?
I suspect I have a peculiar affliction… I am a quotologist. I love studying men and women I admire and t catch to afflictions of the quotes that they allowed to direct their lives.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
