Generally, I like movies that make me laugh (Something's Gotta
Give; My Big, Fat Greek Wedding; and almost any Tom Hanks movie,
however, I saw The Help and liked it. I like live theater and going
to the symphony. Music tastes vary depending on my mood; safe bets
would be pre 60's. As for food, I like nearly all kinds - as long
as it is shared with good company.
The six things I could never do without

I don't spend a lot of time thinking of any one thing - life has
