1. What was the first live concert you ever attended?
I was just a kid, when Youth for Christ visited our town, and George Beverly Shea gave a wonderful concert. Since that time I have attended many Christian music concerts and several Country/Western ones.
2. What colors look best on you?
Years ago, I worked for a high end cosmetic company and part of our training was to learn color analysis for our clients. Using their guidelines, I am a spring.
The Light Spring
My Best Colors: Peach, Peachy Pink, Aqua, Periwinkle, Warm Turquoise, Teal Blue, Warm Gray, Navy, Ivory. And personally I look best in periwinkle or turquoise.
3. What is one thing about you that most people wouldn't know?
I was married in France to a US Air Force Senior Airman. In order for the marriage to be legal we had to be married by a French judge in a civil ceremony in Evereux and then the base chaplain in a military ceremony at the base chapel. Both ceremonies were legal.
4. Who would you call to be bailed out of jail?
Who you gonna call?
They would have to do, cause I ain't got no money! ( And neither do any of my kin)
5. What do you think is the greatest invention of your lifetime and why?
I have seen a lot of inventions in my lifetime--
The Z3 computer is developed, the first machine to be controlled by software
Silly Putty and the Slinky
First vaccine for influenza
Edwin Land invents instant photography
George de Mestral invents Velcro
Color television pictures are first transmitted
1952 First vaccine for polio discovered by Salk
1953 Microwave ovens first produced by the Raytheon Corporation
1954 First non-stick pans developed, using Teflon
1959 The Du Pont company develops Lycra
1962 First computer game devised; Spacewar
Acrylic paint developed
1967 First vaccine for mumps -1970 First vaccine for rubella -1974 First vaccine for chicken pox
1972 First email message sent
1977 The Apple II personal computer is launched
1983 Internet was formed
2008 Camera Pill
2009 microelectronic retinal implant
New inventions of 2011 include the light field camera, the world's smallest printer, fabric made from milk, and an electronic blood hound.
Now some of them I certainly could live without--say polyester suit--but where would we be without silly putty, Tupperware and the microwave oven.
I am amazed at the progress medicine has made in my lifetime. When I was born there were no vaccines. That is the most important invention for me, followed by the technology of communications.
