Kiss from a Rose

1) This song is from the movie, Batman Forever. The movie Batman v. Superman will be out later this month. In that matchup, who do you support -- The Caped Crusader or The Man of Steel? I am torn, but I think I'll go with the Caped Crusader

2) "Rose" became a popular name in the 19th century, when parents also began naming their daughters "Iris," "Violet," "Daisy" and "Lily." Do you know anyone who has a flower name? no, I can't think of anyone

3) This week's artist, Seal, has something to fall back on. At his parents' insistence, before he pursued music he got an associate degree in architecture from a small college in Westminster. What's the last grade you completed? I have a Bachelor's degree and have done some work above that

4) Seal wrote this song back in the 1980s but didn't really like it very much. His producer discovered it when they were looking for material to complete Seal's second album and the result was several Grammys. Tell us about a time when something turned out better than you thought it would. this morning, I went to an art show opening at the library's art gallery and it wasn't as awkward as I feared it would be

5) Ex-wife Heidi Klum is not the only model in Seal's life. He also dated Tyra Banks. Can you name another famous model? Christie Brinkley

6) Seal is currently involved with yet another model, Australian Erica Packer. Between them they have seven children. How many siblings do you have, and are you the oldest, youngest, or in the middle? I have three older sisters, I am the youngest

7) Seal's birthday was back on February 19. Let's think about your birthday. If you could have any type of cake you wanted, what would you request? chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, please!

8) In 1996, when this song was popular, Lyle and Erik Menendez were found guilty of murdering their parents in a crime and trial that dominated the news in Los Angeles. What are people in your town talking about? the impending, potential storm

9) Random question: There's an old saying, "Like nails on a blackboard." Sam can't recall ever hearing nails on a blackboard, but she knows she hates the sound of a dripping faucet. What sound bothers you the most? there are so many! But worst is the sound of an air horn!

I don't think I've ever had peanut butter frosting. I shall have to seek it out.

I am a youngest child also. I use to hate the sound of an air horn when my kids would do swim competitions. Then one day we went to a competition where they use a gun with blanks- wth? The air horn was not so bad after that gun.

I think we are getting your storm, but for us it is rain/sleet/snow, and hopefully gone by tomorrow afternoon.

Your cake sound like an inverse Reese's Peanut butter cup.
The storm is going to miss us and go out to sea, we are only supposed to get a dusting.
