What brought you to Norwich?
The succinct answer is that the Hanover/Norwich area was recommended when we were deciding to move from California back to the northeast.

What’s your favorite hang out in Norwich?
I’m kind of a homebody, so I’d have to say our black armchair where I start each day drinking coffee, reading the Valley News, poring over – and sometimes responding to – the listserv. But, if I’m out and about, the most likely places to find me are Dan & Whit’s, the dump, the library, or the MCS or Huntley playgrounds.

What’s your favorite food on the Thanksgiving table?
This really depends on who made what. My all-time favorite is stuffing with sausage, but some versions are better than others.

Favorite way to spend a snowy day in Norwich?
If it’s a light snow and not too windy or cold, skating on the pond or cross-country skiing will make me very happy. If it’s really snowy, my black armchair also faces our wood stove and that’s a good place to settle in for a good read.

What are you most looking forward to this winter?
Believe it or not, I really enjoy snowblowing the driveway, if it’s not windy or bitterly cold. Which reminds me that I have to make sure it still starts up.

What skill would you like to master?
I kind of like being “capable at some and expert at none” so I’m not sure I want to master any. But I really would like to learn to play the bass guitar. I even bought one over a dozen years ago, but I have never put in the time to learn much of anything.

What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?
I don’t find these weird, but I’ve been told by others that they think they are: peanut butter and banana, and peanut butter and bacon. Don’t think I’ve tried all three together, but Elvis might have.

What was cool when you were younger, but not now?
Not sure I have ever been one to know what is cool, so pretty sure my views on this are somewhat irrelevant.

If you could have dinner with any famous person (alive or dead) who would it be?
The writers of the US Constitution, so I could ask them how they think it should be interpreted today in light of all the societal and technological changes that have occurred since they wrote it. Or for similar reasons, Jesus or Mohammed.
