Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Knowledge is power."

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Sourdough bread and butter

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Anyone who has the guts to pursue what they are passionate about.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Oh *&#!" and "Damn it, where is it?!!" and "Get out of there!" (That's to the dog). Also, "Love you," and "Hey sweetie" and "Give it a go, you never know" and "Drive carefully" (see question #5). "You won't believe what happened" is being used a lot lately. So is "Oh, I'm a lucky woman." If the backspace key were a word, that would be in there, too.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Impatience - with the fates, and occasionally with others.
