2. How do you like your steak? Grilled medium rare! Sometimes in a nice homemade teriyaki marinade!

When I get to retirement, I'd like to road-trip it all over the US with our travel trailer. I haven't been to very many states, but we LOVE camping! I was stationed in Germany when I was in the Army, and visited 7 countries and skiied many of the Alps! I'd go back in a heartbeat!

14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? Full. I am generally very happy with life.

    OH THAT is JUST GREAT, Dennis! Thank-you-very-much for getting that song stuck in my head! It is NOT the right tune for the HAPPY DANCE going on in my head for reaching my first 5% goal!

    Gotta turn on some tunes to drown that other dorky one out!
