1. When did you last feel down and out?

Hearing that RBG had died and only two hours later that #45 would be announcing his nomination for justice.  It makes me feel that unless we vote him out, her death marks the death of democracy in this country.

2. What do you do to feel sexy?

Watch Outlander.

3. If you could be somewhere else, where would you be and why?

I have been to 24 countries and about 40 states and I am actually happy right where I am.  I'm too old to settle somewhere else, even if #45 is reelected.

4. What have you always wanted to do?

I am very fortunate that I have probably done almost everything on my bucket list.  I will never get to Africa and probably never cruise up the inland passage to Alaska, but I'm OK with that now.

5. What do you appreciate the most about your life at this time?

I am enjoying having Ned and Marta living here and appreciate all the help they give.

6. If you could be someone else, who would you be and why?

Someone who can go to sleep and sleep through the night.

7. Have you ever made a fool of yourself? If yes, spill.

I think I told this story in Saturday 9 a few weeks ago, but it was going to a fancy party, dressed in gold lam� culottes that were just slightly too long for me.  Had too much champagne and coming home we got out of the car.  Our very prim and proper British gentleman co-op babysitter was standing on the stairs waiting for us.  I stepped on the culottes, fell up the stairs and peed all over myself.  Probably one of my most embarrassing moments.

8. What have you always wanted to do but haven't?

Go on a photo safari to Africa.  Taken a cruise up the inland passage to Alaska. 

9. What do you think about the talk about traveling to Mars?

It won't happen in my lifetime so I don't think about it.  Though if we could colonize Mars, it would be somewhere to go to get away from the Trump empire.  But I saw The Martian and don't think I'd be interested!

10. If you could bring back someone who has passed, who would it be?

My two kids.

If you are a fan of the Great British Bake Off and enjoy Paul Hollywood...and if you love San Francisco as much as I do (or are curious about it), I highly recommend watching this one-hour video where Paul tours all of San Francisco, but especially bakeries.  It's one of the most fun travelogues I have seen in a very long time, though he makes two mistakes.  First, he says the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake, but forgets that it was the fire that resulted from the earthquake that actually did most of the damage.  He also goes to Fisherman's wharf and has clam chowder...I don't remember ever seeing clam chowder at Fisherman's wharf...he doesn't even mention crab.

But otherwise it's a great show and if you have insomnia, a good thing to take up the time rather than lying awake wondering why you can't sleep.
