Who is the easiest person for you to talk to?

Myself. I answer, too.


If you could live in any ancient city during the height of the quality of its society and culture, which one would you choose?

I don’t think it qualifies as “ancient,” but I would love to have worked in Hollywood in the 1930’s to 1950’s — the heyday of the great Hollywood musicals. I can’t imagine how wonderful it must have been to be on the set when Fred Astaire, Gene Kelley, Howard Keel, et. al. were filming.


What is the most exciting event youโ€™ve ever witnessed?

I can’t think of anything . . . I’ve had some pretty exciting experiences over the years, but as far as being a “witness” to something? I’m drawing a blank.

Main Course

If you were a celebrity, what would you do for a publicity stunt?

Sadly, it is no longer enough for the masses to just practice your craft the best way that you can . . . everyone wants instant gratification and is obsessed with celebrity. Real art is being lost in the process. I would follow the example of great musicians like Sir James Galway who simply comes out on stage, gives his best performance every time, practices for hours every day to maintain his skills, and mesmerizes audiences every time he plays.


What do you consider the ideal age to have a first child?

I don’t believe there is a particular chronological age because everyone is different. Even when you think you were totally grown-up and ready when you had children, there are still moments when you look at your kid, shake your head and say to yourself, “And childbirth seemed like such a good idea at the time.”

When someone is able to provide for the child, mature enough to shoulder the responsibility of raising another human being and willing to accept that they have signed on for a job that will not end until their own life does (because you never stop being a parent, even after your kids are grown and leading their own lives) . . . that’s when they should consider becoming a parent. Not before.

“Friday’s Feast”


  1. Love your appetizer..I talk, and answer, myself quite often, too. Please keep it our little secret, though, okay? LOL! Great feast!

  2. well thought out dessert, well done. I loved you appetizer and would love to witness a converation. Also I love the time period you chose–that would have been awesome to witness. Great feast this week!

  3. I love your appetizer! Happy Friday! Come join my very 1st feast ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. That was a very thoughtful dessert and I have to agree. So many become parents for the wrong reasons- and even now I look at my son and think- my goodness- I’m a mummy! Happy Friday

  5. oopppsss… I was a bad dawg. My big paw hit the button wrong and made two comments when I only wanted to make one. Please furgive me.

  6. What a great answer to the soup question. I adore musicals of the golden era of Hollywood. It would have been so much fun to witness many of those amazing dance scenes first hand. I just watched An American in Paris and I thought that during the dance scene with Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron.

  7. I totally agree with your dessert. I didn’t have my first child until my late 30s. Any earlier and I wouldn’t have been ready.

  8. I talk to myself, too. They say you only have to worry if you start losing arguments. ๐Ÿ˜†

  9. I loved your dessert. I was cracking up. It is so full of truth. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great feast. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing.
