This Side of the
1. What's something you've
recently accomplished solo?
What with self-quarantining, I can't think of anything I've accomplished solo.
My best solo accomplishment was taking over as office manager for a medical
office that was moving to new quarters Nobody knew what we were doing and
someone had to make the decisions.
2. What's one product you use that never ever fails?
Best Foods Mayonnaise!
3. Have you found your place in the world? Where is it?
I am actually comfortable where I am now. It took me 15 years to feel "at
home" in Davis, but this is now my home

The only movie I ever walked out of was Dr. T and the Women. I
worked in ob/gyn too long to enjoy all the problems with that film.

6. What's your favorite Italian
I love veal piccata, but never order (or cook) it because it's killing babies.
7. Have you ever been to France? Any desire to visit there, and if so what
would site or city would you most want to see?
I've been to France twice. I wanted to love Paris, but did not.
However, I loved traveling through the south of France, especially Arles, where
VanGogh did a lot of his most famous paintings.
8. Have you ever been to Disney,
any of the parks at all? Are you a Disney superfan or something less than that?
They're open right now so tell us, would you go if you had the time/money/a free
I first went to Disneyland 3 years after it opened. We then took each of
our kids around the time of their 4th-5th birthday and we have taken most of our
foreign students to Disneyland. I have seen enough of Disneyland. If
I get a free trip somewhere, I'd prefer that it NOT be Disneyland.
9. Your favorite place to go when you want to be quiet as a church mouse?
Would those who know you well describe you as more church mouse or perhaps more
like mighty mouse?
Actually, this house is pretty quiet and if I'm here in my office and don't turn
on the TV it's very quiet. Nobody would ever think of me as mighty mouse.
10. Do you bake your own bread? Last time you had hot out-of-the-oven
homemade bread? What's your favorite kind of bread?
I made all of our bread for many years, when the kids were little. I
prefer plain white bread, but have made lots of different kinds of bread.
If I'm buying it in the store, I buy white bread or raisin bread or
Killer Dave's bread. And of course having grown up in San Francisco, I
love good sourdough bread.
11. What's something you might say is 'the greatest thing since sliced bread'?
What could possibly be greater than sliced bread?

blessings. One catch-they all must start with the letter T.

13. Tell us where you were and something about what life was like when you
were 20- 21.

I never think to use coupons and don't buy all that much so I don't regularly
shop with coupons.
