Honesty is a big deal for me. Personal integrity. If you say that you are going to do something, then you should either get it done or let the person know that you are not going to be able to do it. Don't commit, if you can't be committed. (not to be confused with being committed to prison or a mental facility....)
I am a believer in the goodness of others and myself. Maybe I am too much of an optimist and at times, might be know to put too much faith in "If there is a will, then there is a way"
Going to a wrecking yard to pull parts for a project is not a big deal for me....but neither is cleaning up and going to a fundraiser, black tie evening, is also enjoyable. I am comfortable in both social extremes.
