Instead of a biographical paragraph or two, I thought I'd borrow the questions that James Lipton from "Inside the Actors' Studio" poses at the end of each interview. They're a fun way to share a little bit about myself so here goes:

1. What is your favorite word?

Beauty. And I mean the kind of beauty that comes from inside and from God.

2. What is your least favorite word?

Any derogatory racial slurs.

3. What turns you on?

Great sense of humor.

4. What turns you off?
Ungraciousness, plain meanness.

5. What sound or noise do you love?

Sound - The Beatles. Birds chirping. Noise - children playing.

6. What sound or noise do you hate?

An animal in distress. People talking over one another.

7. What is your favorite curse word?

Ass Cannon

8. What
