What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
My favorite book is A Walk In The Woods Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail. My son walked the entire trail in 2004, and I read the book to learn about some of the things he might encounter. I have been a fan of the author, Bill Bryson, ever since!

It’s a tie between The Blind Side or Miracle On Ice

If you could have dinner with one person from the past or present, who would it be?
My Mother. Although she isn’t famous to the rest of the world, she was a rock star to me. When she lost her battle with cancer at the age of 49, I was lost. We would have the longest dinner in history and maybe a few desserts and drinks because I would never want the evening to end!
