If I was stranded on an island with no possible escape, there are three things I MUST have:

A series of books, a survival kit and my family.

My Greatest Achievement:

Raising three wonderful children.

Have you travelled much for leisure? If so, where?

Ireland, Europe and historical places throughout the United States.

Other than the present, which historical era would you have liked to live?

I like indoor plumbing so I’d have to say any era that has a bathroom inside the house!

With benefit of hindsight, the advice I’d give my 18-year-old self:

Save more and spend more time with family.

If possible, one super-human power I could possess:

Mind reading.

If money was not a limiting factor, name one thing you would like to do.  

See that all soldiers and veterans get everything they need for a good life.
