Favorite Music: 60’s pop music and classic sounding country, but my very favorite is any style Christian with the exception of rap; which in my opinion is not music at all. I also love Christmas music all year long.

Hobbies: My hobby is spending as much time with people as I can.  I love hanging out with people no matter what we are doing.  Well, I will add as long as I am not cold or wet.

Favorite Restaurant: Bravo, Biaggi’s, Famous Dave’s, but my very favorite is Texas Roadhouse.

Favorite Sports Teams: I cheer for Baylor University in all college sports and I follow the Yankees, Lakers, and Packers.

Dream Vacation: My dream vacation is to travel from city to city to watch professional baseball visiting every Major League’s home stadium.  Eating hotdogs and drinking Coca-cola with peanuts.
