1. Who are the people in your life that bring out the best in you? How do they do it?
Professionally? Give me a daunting task. The more difficult to figure out the better. Unfortunately, bad management prevents that from happening too often lately.

My wife motivates me, brings out the best in men, in the various ways only a spouse can. Really, I shudder to think what my life would be like if she wasn’t with me.

2. What are the major items on your bucket list? What things do you want to accomplish before you die?
I really don’t have anything. Perhaps that’s a bad thing.

3. How are you similar or different from the person you were 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?
Really, there aren’t a ton of similarities. Five years ago I was in a new relationship, my first significant one in several years. I liked it so I put a ring on it.
Ten years ago, I was trying to finish my degree, and working far, far too much at the same time. Still, I think that fall semester my last year was probably my best academically.
Twenty years ago? I was living in Bremerhaven, Germany. Memories are really fading. I think we were just about getting the hints that big changes were coming to American life in Germany. By May, the immediate changes were already happening. My high school had about 600 students when the 91-92 year finished. The next year, there were only about 150 to start the year. When I left in February, it was down to about 80. I had four lockers.

I’ve got a bunch of ,b>faves. I apologize. Up too late last night watching Breesus give repeated doses of Manningface……
