Some of my favorite authors not necessarily in order of precedence:
T.H. White, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ayn Rand, Thoreau, Theroux (Paul), E.F.
Schumacher, Will and Ariel Durant, David Sedaris
, Harper Lee and many
more plus anyone who can write as well, and as clearly, as do the
writers of The Economist.
Really too many books and movies to list..
Movies and shows..I don't have a TV but I do like films and some
shows..BSG, Lost, Firefly, West Wing, The Newsroom. Films..I like
classics, 12 Angry Men, Casablanca, etc. Sci Fi/Fantasy LOTR,
Avatar..like suspense, action..I'll watch most anything other than
horror or dumb comedy..anything with Jim Carey I would hate.
Food - love hot and spicy. I challenge you to eat anything hotter
than I can. I'll try most anything but Thai
, Indian, Mexican and Italian are at
the top of my list. Anything fresh out of the garden is also great,
as is sushi.
