I easily fall asleep on airplanes; I can sing; My favorite recipe is marble chocolate cheesecake.

What is one thing you’d like to do before you die?  I have to keep travelling!  I’ve walked the Great Wall of China; hiked Machu Picchu; visited the Galapagos; seen a volcano in Hawaii from a helicopter and looked over the top crater of Vesuvius; kissed the Blarney Stone; been at the top of St. Peter’s, St. Paul’s, Giotto’s Campanile, the Eiffel Tower, and the Monastery at Petra; been to the Salt Lake and Vancouver Olympic Games; watched an opera at the Bolshoi; come third in an organ grinding context in the Netherlands; ridden a camel at the pyramids of Giza and an elephant in Singapore; and floated in the Dead Sea….but there is so much more to do!

What is your favourite Movie(s)? Hopscotch

What is your earliest curling memory?
Playing “Points” (aka Hot Shots) in my first month of curling, and winning the Leads/Seconds category to receive a bottle of scotch.
