I'm interested in your answers. Give as many details as you want to.

Which celebrity would you be sad to learn of their death? Tina Turner - I just love her spirit, songs, moves, etc. I wasn't as open to her in the early 80's but that has changed. I think she's fascinating!

Which unsolved crime would be your priority to solve? The murder of JonBenet Ramsey


Of the three presidential candidates, what nice thing can you say about one of the ones you're NOT voting for? His children seem to have avoided substance abuse problems and have a good work ethic. This is an accomplishment when access to money is not a problem.


Would you be scared if you won a large lottery? I would be very concerned for my family as my state requires winners' names to be reported. I'd also get tired of the constant requests for money. I'll share a lot of it, but I already have ideas of the charities, family, friends, and strangers I'd give some money.


Do you watch a lot of the feel good videos? Yes, I do even though they make me cry. The last one was a dog reunited with his owner after two years. It's awesome.

In a way, yes. I'd not want to become lazy or reckless.

I forgot about Ellen and Oprah, but I'm currently focused on Tina so she was my only thought. I'd be sad about many, but really sad about Tina. I was sad about Whitney, but not so much David Bowie.

Lol, at your glowing recommendation of Trump's suits.

I forgot to answer these last two questions.

Would you be scared if you won a large lottery?

No. I would request anonymity about winning.


Do you watch a lot of the feel good videos?

No

Which celebrity would you be sad to learn of their death? Jennifer Lawrence - I lived in Louisville for almost 10 years so I like to think we'd have been friends. Haha!

Which unsolved crime would be your priority to solve? My husband's aunt was murdered many decades ago, found along the side of the road in rural WV. I never met her, but I'd like to be solved to bring some peace to her immediate family.

Of the three presidential candidates, what nice thing can you say about one of the ones you're NOT voting for? Hillary dresses much better now than she did in the days of her husband's campaign. Bernie seems like he'd be a nice guy to just be around. Trump is very self confident. I guess I just gave away that I'm voting third party/libertarian this year.

Would you be scared if you won a large lottery? DH is a pastor so I'm sure if won the lottery he'd lose his job, as gambling is definitely discouraged.

Do you watch a lot of the feel good videos? Yes and no - I'll not watch anything forever, then binge and watch a ton in a setting.

Sorry about your husband's aunt. Murder in the family is very difficult. (There is a murder in my family also, but it was solved.) Are there any good clues in the aunt's murder?

What denomination, if you don't mind answering, is your husband?

1)paul mccartney

2) I'm really not sure which mystery I'd want solved. There are so many!

3) Hillary's confidence is admirable...I wish I was so self assured. Bernie seems like he'd be interesting to talk to. Trump has a very go get it/ ambitious personality. Another trait I wish I had. I guess it hours with the confidence factor. As you can see, I don't see myself voting for any of the choices currently available.

4) I wouldn't be scared to win a large lottery but I might consider asking for anonymity and hiring some security

5) I like to watch them sometimes but I have to be in the mood.

1. Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford. Tom Hanks just seems like a really great guy. Harrison Ford, well he's Harrison Ford.

2. I'm not sure which murder mystery. I haven't really thought about it.

3. Yikes. I am always interested in what Donald Trump's hair might do on any given day.

4. Not scared really. I would love the opportunity to do some good. Anonymity would be a good thing.

5. Not often.

Which celebrity would you be sad to learn of their death?
Though I am not a celebrity hound, I would probably feel sad for quite a few of them. To pick one, I would have to say Robert Redford, who is an all-time hottie. I also like that he started an independent film fest, and his activism in conservation/the environment. Also, did I mention he was hot?


Which unsolved crime would be your priority to solve? I do read a lot about true crime, and there are many unsolved cases that would have my attention. One from NJ is the Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone disappearance. Also, the Jon Benet Ramsey murder.


Of the three presidential candidates, what nice thing can you say about one of the ones you're NOT voting for?I can literally think of not one nice thing to say about Donald Trump, and I guess I am voting for HRC though I am not thrilled with any of the candidates. Bernie...is mobilizing a lot of the young people, which is always good, and I like some of his ideas, though I don't necessarily consider them do-able. Glad he is tackling the cost of college, which is completely out of hand in this country.


Would you be scared if you won a large lottery? Probably. There are lots of crazy people out there, and I have a large family and know the news of any winnings would not stay quiet. I would worry about someone in the family becoming a target.


Do you watch a lot of the feel good videos? Sometimes. My favorite is Christian the Lion. I sometimes watch the O Captain, My Captain scene from Dead Poets' and the cheesily-romantic ending to An Officer and a Gentleman.
