  1. I never noticed the comments!

    Ok so here are some questions, Joe:
    Do you have a favorite quote? Or saint?
    Are you a morning person or night owl?
    Do you have a favorite food?
    Would you rather watch a movie or read a book?


    1. Favorite saint: Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. Bruno. Forgot to say Fr Al Schwarz!

      Morning person, through years of having to get up early. Or, maybe, an “after coffee person”?

      I’m definitely tempted by gluttony, I love food. But I don’t think I have a “favorite”. I like everything!

      I would rather read a book (Lord of the Rings, anyone?!)


  2. This question is hard (well hard for me). favorite movie. lets do favorite old movie (prior to 1970) and favorite newer movie.


  3. Ok, I’ll play. 🙂

    1. Last song you listened to?
    2. Something people may not know about you?
    3. 3 things you can’t live without?
    4. Best advice someone’s given you?
    5. Favorite place to visit?
    6. 3 Words to describe you?

    1. 1. Rush, “Mission”
      2. I left home to go to boarding school/pre seminary when I was 12 (willingly!!) and was also expelled from said school at 16.
      3. God, Mel, family (love you Mel), or coffee, alcohol, and friends.
      4. More like a scolding. In 2007, I received a man to man talk about my attitude by a man I respect that changed the way I saw myself and I hope changed me for the better…
