Q&A with Mark:

What’s a hidden talent that you have?
My son and I like to fly kites whenever we get the chance.  It’s not a cute as it sounds – he’s 26. I also bake a really great carrot cake.

 What’s your favorite TV show and why?
I really like David Suchet in Agatha Christie’s Poirot.  I think I like it because the character is insightful and organized and fastidious – the exact opposite of me.  Though, I must admit it often puts me to sleep.  Maybe that’s why I like it.

If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why?
I would be a monkey.  Who doesn’t like a monkey? Thanks for asking – I think….
