Question: Red or Green Chile?
Answer: I like green chile most of the time, but red is good every once in a while!

Question: What is one unusual fact about yourself?
Answer: In my past life, I worked as an environmental scientist, happily getting my hands dirty with projects that required the use of natural stream restoration techniques, soil mapping, benthic macro invertebrate (bug) identifications, and wetland delineations. On my first week of work, I rescued a dog from an active surface mine site (many homeless dogs wander the mine lands) who is still with me today. My co-workers never let me live that one down, but it caught on and in the end some of them adopted wonderful dogs as well! I learned a new appreciation of life and nature driving that old jeep through miles highly environmentally-impacted lands that still hold a unique beauty, a beauty that just simply cannot be described.
