Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!

Here are more from Thought Provoking Questions..

1. If you had to teach something, what would you teach?
I'd go with history and teach the history of The Lamplighters Music Theater.

2. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?
Well, I regret giving up college, but at 76, it's not as important to me any longer.  I have no desire to go back.

3. Are you holding onto something that you need to let go of?
Have you looked at the photos of our living room that I have posted recently???

4. When you are 80-years-old, what will matter to you the most?
That's only 4 years from now.  What will matter is how my mother is (if she's still living at 103), and what my mental status is, since I see hints of dementia in myself.

5. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards and just do what you know is right?
It should have been what we've been doing long before now!

6. How old would you be if you didnít know how old you are?
35.  It's amazing how many people are mentally in their mid-30s.

7. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
It depends on how serious the law break is.  Jaywalking, sure.  Murder, probably not.  Everything else in between.

8. What makes you smile?
Oh I'm a sucker for all those puppy, kitten, baby and misc. animal videos on Facebook.

9. When itís all said and done, will you have said more than youíve done?
I'm fairly quiet, so I guess done more.

10. If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
Wake up, people...Climate change is real!!! and "remember all those kidnapped kids in jail on our border...they are still there!!!"

11. If you could instill one piece of advice in a newborn babyís mind, what advice would you give?
When you are old enough and get teeth, remember to floss

12. What do we all have in common besides our genes that makes us human?
Love of chocolate?

13. If you could choose one book as a mandatory read for all high school students, which book would you choose?
"Grapes of Wrath" or "East of Eden."  For a good story, for excellent writing, and for a look at the history of the country during that period.

14. Would you rather have less work or more work you actually enjoy doing?
Hard to answer this when you are retired.

15. What is important enough to go to war over?
Inhumanity to innocent people...but only if the war is not going to make conditions worse for them.

16. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
never trying

17. When was the last time you listened to the sound of your own breathing?
Just now, when I read this question.

18. Whatís something you know you do differently than most people?
Sleep.  (Half the night on the couch, half the night in the recliner with the TV on)

19. What does ĎThe American Dreamí mean to you?"
A place to live, enough to eat, people who care about you, enough money to cover the essentials.  Everything else is gravy.

20. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
Oh definitely a joyful simpleton.
