First off, if you did not see the debate between Jon Stewart and Bill
O'Reilly, I highly recommend it. No matter what you think about either man, they
obviously like and respect each other and disagree on their view of most things. I
love intellectual debates like this! I actually paid to watch it, but felt I got my
$5 worth, and half of that $5 went to charity, so that was a good thing. But now
it's on YouTube and if you get a chance, it's a
good hour and a half of stuff that made me wish Presidential debates were held like this!
(Of course they obeyed the moderator about as well as Obama and Romney did!)
41. WHAT ARE YOUR NICKNAMES?
Bev, Mom, Grandma and years ago when I was in grammar school, a priest called me

45. LONGEST SHIFT YOU HAVE WORKED AT A JOB? WHAT WAS THE JOB?
I don't think I've ever worked longer than an 8 hour day, though I have worked
overtime (voluntarily) many times.
46. FAVORITE MOVIE?
A Star Is Born, Judy Garland version.
47. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SANG IN PUBLIC? WHAT DID YOU SING?
Oh Lord...probably the National Anthem at a baseball game, but that would have been 2
years ago, at least.

I don't fight.

My keys, cell phone (usually, unless I forget), Kindle, camera, wallet, credit cards

Facebook, I guess.
52. DO YOU SMOKE?
Never have, never will.
53. IN YOUR EXPERIENCE, HAVE LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS WORKED?
Never got the chance to try, but obviously long distance friendships don't
work. I've lost several that way.
54. DO YOU BELIEVE IN ASTROLOGY?
I think it's fun to read, but I don't believe in it.
55. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON WHO CALLED YOU?
Some telemarketer. I yelled at him.
56. WHAT WAS THE LAST TEXT MESSAGE YOU RECEIVED?
It was from Jeri and was a picture of the Ragtime program. She was

57. WHAT ARE YOU WEARING RIGHT NOW?
Sweat pants and an Obama t-shirt from 2008, ready to wear again!
58. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON?
