 Your 11 Questions Answered 
  1. What is your favourite food? My favourite food is down the street at a little cafĂ© with white tablecloths, candles, experienced wait staff...oh...and a skilled vegetarian chef. (Wake me up for the next question as I see I am totally dreaming because there's no such spot in Black Currant Bay.)
  2. From where did the idea of blogging come? I write a column called How to Spot an Aspiring Vegetarian for The Black Currant Bay Beacon Star. Can you imagine that the population of this very small northern Ontario town is not as anxious to embrace vegetarianism as I'd hoped? I decided to expand my readership by blogging on the Internet.
  3. Are you cat or dog? Oh, cat! No offense to dog lovers. I don't dislike dogs, but cats are my fave! Even when I look at one of the big cats my heart says, "Cute kitty!" Good thing my brain says otherwise. 
  4. Who's your favourite author? Right now, it's Lee Child because of a recommendation by a blogger you'll soon meet. Thanks to her I'm practically addicted.
  5. What's your dream car? Do you see me (swooning) reflected in the fender of the vintage car in the photo above? 
  6. Do you think you will still be blogging in 10 year's time? Yes, I think so. I like blogging. Do you?
  7. What do your friends think about your blog? France and Kathleen give it an enthusiastic seven thumbs up.
  8. If you won the lotto, what would you do with the money? Authentic restoration of beautiful old buildings. You probably think I'm nuts already anyway so what do I have to lose? 
  9. What do you usually do in your free time? What free time? Does anyone have free time these days?
  10. What is your favourite cuisine? Italian. Carbs, here I come! Umm...feel like joining me for a walk after supper? We'll just have to make time!
  11. Which country would you like to visit next? Italy. Brochures are out on the coffee table.
