All Right

1) This song has an optimistic message about love: "It gets tough sometimes, but you can give it one more try ..." Do you tend to take an optimistic look at life? I do

2) In this song, Christopher Cross sings, "Time and time again I see people so unsure like me ..." Tell us about a recent time when your confidence could have used a boost. I'm worried about reaching my students--distance learning is not the way I make my magic happen

3) The Doobie Bros.' Michael McDonald plays on this record. Do you have a favorite Doobie Bros. song? oh--there are so many I love. Today I'll say "What A Fool Believes"

4) Though no longer making hits, Christopher Cross still has loyal fans who attend his concerts. Time permitting, he spends time after each show signing autographs. Have you ever asked a celebrity for his/her autograph? yes! Stephen King

5) Christopher Cross' dad was an Army doctor stationed at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, DC. With all the museums and monuments, our nation's capital could be a great place for a kid to grow up ... except sometimes we take the advantages of our hometown for granted. Tell us about a nearby museum, park, theater, etc., you'll visit again when this period of crisis is over and it's agreed that it's safe to do so. I hope my favorite restaurant survives the shutdown, I would love to go there as soon as I can!

6) In 1983, when "All Right" was popular, Flashdance was a hit in movie theaters and on the radio. What's the most recent movie you watched? Most recent song you heard on the radio? the most recent movie I watched is To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" is the last song on the radio.

7) Also in 1983, America West Airlines took off, flying between Las Vegas and Phoenix. They went nationwide in 2005 after they merged with US Airways. In 2013, they merged again, this time with American Airlines. Do you collect miles in an airline loyalty program? nope

8) Super Mario Bros. debuted in 1983. Can you name gaming's most famous siblings? Mario and Luigi

9) Random question -- Under hypnosis, you discover you lived three past lives. In the first, you were wealthy beyond your wildest imaginings, thanks to a loveless marriage. In the second, you were a star on the roller derby circuit who had earned the nickname "Smasher." In the third, you were a brilliant mathematician who worked your way through school as an exotic dancer. Which of these would you find most shocking? the third because math is NOT my forte

I imagine distance learning is very hard...especially when the kiddos have so many other things they'd probably rather do.

I totally missed question #8. I bet you are having trouble with distance learning - I suspect a lot of people, teachers, parents and students alike, are. What a strange time we are living in.

I hope your fave restaurant makes it, too. Fingers crossed for all the local businesses that give our towns character.
