Here are some fun questions to help us get better acquainted!

1. Where were you born?

2. What is the furthest away from home you have been?

3. What subject did you like best in high school? Least?

4. What is the biggest contribution you could make if you were stranded on a deserted island with a group of people? This doesn't have to be roughin' it skills--think about personality traits, etc.

5. What pet(s) do you have, if any?

1. I was born in the state of Virginia.

2. What is the furthest away from home you have been? I lived in the Manchester, England area for a year and a half doing volunteer church work when I was 21.

3. What subject did you like best in high school? Least? I always liked my music, dance, sewing, etc. classes best--I always had a knack for English but had a hard time staying focused (ADD). I HATED math classes.

4. What is the biggest contribution you could make if you were stranded on a deserted island with a group of people? This doesn't have to be roughin' it skills--think about personality traits, etc. Welllllll. . .once I got done boo-hooing I would be getting to know the other people. I'm a good listener. I'd be willing to pitch in and help with the not-to-icky stuff, but I'm kind of a wimp.

5. What pet(s) do you have, if any? We have two adult cats named Kitty and Angel, and two kittens we rescued from abandonment named Smoky and Sugar. I loooooove white cats.

I was born in virginia.I have lived here my whole life.The furthest away from home I have ever been was I went on a school field trip for French to Montreal & Quebec for one week.

My favorite subjects in school were science & history, the least was math & english Ugh!

Im really not sure what contribution I would make, I think I have funny if not weird sense of humor & Im an outdoors person maybe that would be my contribution. Oh and when ever the feeling strikes, I take charge, unfortunately you cant count on it :/

Hi

OK, here goes...

1. Born in Detroit

2. Lived in Alaska for about six years

3. I don't remember high school but my favorite, I think, would be either math or art...or maybe english. The areas I like least are science and p.e.

4. The biggest contribution I could make? I follow directions well and try to be encouraging, rather than discouraging.

5. I live with Quimby who is part pug part boarder collie. She is a pug with an attitude, who thinks that she really is a great dane.
