Abraham Lincoln, so I could try to learn and understand selfless love of my country and fellow man.

We have enjoyed so many awesome family visits to Steamboat Lake. One evening there was an amazing and scary thunderstorm – the sky was red.  The memory always reminds me of John Denver’s Rocky Mountain High lyric– “I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky”.

Fleetwood Mac – their music is timeless and their passion to perform at age 70+ is inspirational.

If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be?

As painful as it might be, I would like to live in Atlas Shrugged as Hank Rearden.
