10 years ago I was:
40 pounds heavier and living on a farm in Oregon and working in the newsroom for a newspaper, raising five children, eight horses, a dozen or so chickens and turkeys, a few calves, 500 tomato plants, a dozen cats, four dogs, and way too many snakes (I hate snakes, eek!).
5 years ago I was:
Living in the desert in Silver Springs Nevada (the BEST place I have ever lived. The blue sky, sunshine, sand storms, history, wild horses, coyotes, cats, and rattle snakes), working in the newsroom at the Carson City Newspaper (the BEST job I have ever had), raising four children (one had moved out & was still living in Oregon). We also had five horses, four or five cats (before the coyotes got 'em all), three dogs and way too many snakes, except this time they were rattlers. Oh, and scorpions, too.
1 year ago:
I was 30 pounds heavier than I am now and I started biking again.

If I were a billionaire I would:
have $1,000,000,000 and wouldn't want to play "Who wants to be a (puny) millionaire?"
6 People I want to have lunch with tomorrow:
Willy Shakespeare (to ask him if he really wrote all those plays he's credited for writing and maybe find out once and for all which it is; to be or not to be?)
Vincent van Gogh (to ask him what he was thinking when he cut off his own ear. Stay away from lead paint, dude.)
All my favorite bloggers (if you're reading this then you are one of them)
Karen and all of our kids
Adam and Eve
Charles Darwin (To find out how that whole theory of evolution thingy is working out)
OK. that's six groups of people pretty much.
