Favorite Books: "The little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery;
"Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien; "Mere
Christianity" by CS Lewis; "Lord of the Flies" by Wm. Golding; "One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey; "The Prophet" by Gibran
Khalil; Five People You Meet In Heaven" by Mitch Albom; This list
is very incomplete. These are just a few books that have had a
special place during my life. Some no more than pleasure, use of
imagination, others profound influence on my thoughts and feeling
of that time period, most were both.
Movies: "Nightmare Before Christmas", "The Rocky Horror Show",
"Arsenic and Old Lace", "North By Northwest", "Saving Private
Ryan", "Dirty Dozen", "Glory", "Stagecoach", "Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid", "Magnificent Seven", "Seven Samurai", "Samurai",
"Schindler's List", and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". One
"Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is the only movie and book that I
equally valued. The movies like the books are never ending.
Music is a later task! There is so much.
Foods, spirits and liquid refreshments: There is no food or drink I
will not try. I believe in curiosity and adventure in almost all
things regarding my life, none more so than food and drink. Fish
and Shellfish prepared in a multitude of ways; Most all veggies,
fruit and nuts prepared or raw; Soft cheeses and butters with an
abundant assortments of breads; Then there is a variety of honeys
and jams; On and on I could go,
need it be said, "I appreciate fine foods".
Drinks and spirits must be for another time.
