Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. I am a creative, complete and connected man.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. It's a simple theological one. Religious people read on, non-religious people skip this.  Scripture quotes Jesus as saying that "where ever two or more are gathered, there am I". He was clearly talking about establishing truth as the Old Testament directed the Jews to do (hence the two or more witnesses). He IS Truth. Therefore he is there with them, establishing himself. BUT Christians often say, "Hey we have two or more among us, Jesus is here." Hmm. So when i was alone and prayed to him too enter my life, I should have had one or two more people with me? Hmm. It's a wee bit ill-thought-out, I'd say.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd like to meet Mark Twain. I'd ask him why he REALLY waited for a century to have his Autobiography published - with all his straight forwardness during his lifetime, why did he fail in his courage to tell people what he really thought of them and their lives when he was alive? May we all have "short accounts" with people today, during our lifetimes.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Vito Corleone from The Godfather.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Beautiful Boy by John Lennon, Immigrant's Song by Led Zeppelin, Asleep in the Light by Keith Green, What a Wonderful World by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole, The Alamo Theme - the Green Leaves of Summer by Dimitri Tiomkin & Paul Francis
