Random Questions…1-4

I ran across these questions from a leadership blog and thought I would give them a go.

#1 What is your favorite restaurant?

Local = probably Texas Road House for the atmosphere….but not for the price
Out of Town = Chick-Fil-A….yea, really.  I have tons of memories from Houston and Amarillo there.

#2 – What are your top 5 favorite movies?

Tough one…I’m pretty Old School when it comes to movies so I’ll have to give you a list…

  • Field of Dreams (Best Ever…even with Kevin Costner)
  • Star Wars IV (the First One)
  • Road to Rio (Anything with Bob Hope is good)
  • White Christmas (Bing, Danny, Rosemary etc. Fantastic!)
  • The Life of Reilly (Danny Kaye)
  • Sahara (New One)
  • The Patriot (should be required in schools)
  • It’s a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra nailed it!)
  • The Christmas Story
  • All of the Vacation Movies (TV Version)

#3 – Paper or plastic?

Save a tree or feed a landfill? Actually it’s all about trying to make as few trips as possible. Both?
