Already Gone

1) Eagles lead singer Glenn Frey proclaims that he's "feeling strong." How would you describe yourself this fine Saturday? Most excellent!

2) The song begins with a rumor: "I heard some people talking just the other other day ..." Have you heard anything juicy/interesting lately? Please share! a recently divorced friend is dating, that's the hot gossip from here!

3) When "Already Gone" was popular, the news was dominated by Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal. What do you consider today's top news story? It saddens me that people value a zygote more than a child--the treatment of these immigrant children is shameful. It must have been so frightening for those poor children to have mobs of people screaming at their busses. If you're all about protecting life, then protect those children.

4) In the 1970s, Eagles Glenn Frey and Don Henley were at the center of a social circle of very creative people, including singer Linda Ronstadt, singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and actor-comedian Steve Martin. How do you express your creativity? I think teaching is a creative profession. But writing and knitting are two creative outlets in my personal life.

5) Even though they broke up in 1980, the Eagles are currently on a reunion tour, and after knowing each other more than 40 years, Frey and Henley still consider each other friends. What quality to do you value most in a friendship? Being present.

6) Are there any mirrors in the room you're in right now? no

7) What's the last beverage you drank with ice? I am drinking a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee right now!

8) Whole, skim, 2%, half-and-half, almond or soy ... what kind of milk is in your refrigerator right now? none, I don't like milk...

9) Sam likes to mix sliced almonds into her salad. What do you think makes a good salad? I would add sliced almonds to my strawberry spinach salad!

Your answer to #3 is perfect. Just perfect. If only it didn't need to be said.

I know what you mean about those kids. It was an amazing journey in itself.

It certainly should be all about the children. What a world we live in!
