1. My great-great-grandmother, Helena Erd Seiter. She was the child of a German immigrant family, who married a free-thinking German immigrant and moved to the frontier with him to help found the town of New Ulm, MN. She had 12+ children, ran the family hotel, and is described in the US Congressional Record as "an intelligent and collected lady" when she drove her children (4 little boys, at that point, and she was pregnant) and a number of other women and children across the prairie at night in a spring wagon to St. Peter to ask the Union Army for assistance because the Dakota were attacking outlying settlements and expected to attack her town. She was 26. She was known in town as a midwife, and always brought soup to households where there was illness. Also, she made a famous German potato salad! Pretty amazing lady.

2. I am typing this before 7 am on a Saturday morning. Definitely early bird.

3. Usually only my wedding ring.

4. Walk, yes. Run, nope, nope, nopey nope! Running hurts my feet and makes me pee a little with every step. (TMI, I know...)

1. Iíve always been interested in Amelia Earhart. Such a rebel! Love her. Also Malcolm X. I read his autobiography in eighth grade and he really opened my eyes to racism in this country.
2. Night owl all the way. Although I do get up by 7 at latest even in retirement. Always busy!!
3. Nope. Same pearl earrings from DH almost every day. I have others but...I do occasionally wear a necklace. Hate bracelets...have a ton too.
4. Oh, we walk every day. Love to get to 12,000 steps a day. Never a runner and now am glad. All my marathon running friends have broken down knees, hips, backs. Ouch!

1. I admire Amelia Earhart for her courage and strength of character. I wish her disappearance mystery could be solved.
2. Iíve always been an early bird. I canít stay awake past 8 pm unless Iím having an insomnia episode. During those times, Iím awake all night.
3. I wear my replacement wedding ring. Itís a replacement because I put my original away for safe keeping after my husband passed away so many years ago.
4. Run? Thatís a funny concept for me. I can barely walk with my cane right now after what I consider a botched knee replacement. If there is an emergency or fire, I will be dead. Iím not going anywhere fast. No one can make me!

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why?
Anyone who stood up for what is right--Abraham Lincoln is a favorite. I also admire those people who survived the concentration camps in WWII. I don't know if I would have the strength to keep on keeping on like those people did.

2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Neither. I'm more of a 10 a.m.-3 p.m. person .

3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
Wedding ring, earrings, sterling silver ring on right hand, sometimes silver bracelet

4. Do you like to walk or run?
Both. I run about three times a week and walk another two days.

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why?
There are a lot of people I admire. People who risk their safety to stand up for others are admirable people. That takes guts.

2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
I am a night owl, but I can function well as an early bird when I have to.

3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
Yes. I always wear earrings, watch, bracelet, wedding ring, a couple of other rings, and a necklace.

4. Do you like to walk or run?
Walk, yes. Run, no.

1. Martin King comes to mind for one.

2. Night owl

3. If I am hanging at home, just my Fitbit Alta. When I go out of the house I usually put in earrings and I love, love bracelets. I generally stack them. My belief is that if two on a wrist look good, then three is even better . I have very nice yellow and white gold bracelets, but also lots of funky, Bohemian type that I really like. I always have a variety of bracelet style bands for my FitBit. Wedding ring on left hand and on my right a ring that I bought on vacation.

4. Walkó I honestly think I would look like Phoebe from Friends if I tried running

I'm a big fan of Eleanor Roosevelt. She did her own thing and didn't give a hoot what people thought of her. She did a lot for human rights and children.

I'm more of a morning person although I'm retired, so most mornings, I pull up the covers and stay in bed til 9 or 10 am just because I can!

I only wear my engagement ring and my wedding ring even though I've been a widow for 28 years! I always joke that it keeps all the men away but the truth of the matter is.....I always liked them and I still love him, so why not?

I love to walk and I gave up running a long time ago.....too hard on these old knees.

1. I admire Cesar Chavez.

2. I am an early bird.

3. I only wear earrings daily now. For dress-up, I add a necklace.

4. I am a walker. Walking helps me stay fit and helps me sleep at night. I am so grateful to be retired and have time for my daily 5+ mile walks in the sunshine.

1) Trailblazing women (Bessie Coleman, Sonia Sotomayor, Lizzie Stanton)

2) I'm a cat: love to stretch out and sleep all day; alert and up all night.

3) Many years ago, my husband sold polished stone and gemstone jewelry, so I used to wear different, multiple pieces every day.
Nowadays, I just wear a moonstone pendant on a silver chain, my Claddagh wedding band, and an inspirational bracelet I bought from the craft store.

4) I like to hike through the Nature Preserve.

1. Of course! But it's Saturday morning. My brain isn't fully functioning.
2. I am definitely a night owl.
3. I wear my wedding rings each day. Then I add a bracelet, necklace, or earrings most days.
4. Walking is great. I hate running. I was a great runner back in school when I tried track. I hated every second of it though.

1. I don't know if this counts but the first thing I thought of was the story of Queen Esther in the Old Testament. I just love that story of her bravery.

2. Well, I don't like getting up at 5:30 AM for work, but I do prefer mornings and I'm more productive then. I can barely make it past 10:30 PM most nights.

3. I wear very little jewelry. Earrings every day, and occasionally a bracelet.

4. I don't do either regularly, but sometimes DH and I will walk a mile or two in the evenings.

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why?
Not anyone specific at the moment, but I do admire all the people who decided to come West at a time when they had little idea what was here.

2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Early bird for sure.

3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
Define ďa lotĒ.... two rings, two sets of earrings, and one, sometimes three bangle bracelets. Necklace if Iím dressing up. A brooch on a blazer sometimes. Coco Channel,said ďlook in the mirror when youíre finished dressing. Then remove one piece of jewelry.Ē Itís often the necklace.

4. Do you like to walk or run?
Walk. I miss my long walks due to foot issues. Going to attempt a shortened version this morning.

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why?
Malala Yousafzai and Ada Lovelace come to mind. They both are/were strong despite challenges and work(ed) to lift others up. Also, we can't argue the legacy Lovelace left-programming computers? Wow! And all the work Malala has done with so much strength and diginity. Both stick to/stuck their ideals and accepted no compromise.

2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Night owl in the summer, but forced into morning mode during the school year.

3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
No- 3 rings and a certain necklace

4. Do you like to walk or run?
Walk. If you ever see me running, it's probably to a donut sale or away from a psycho killer.

Helen Keller is one that I admire. Also, I'm a quilter/seamstress so gotta love Betsy Ross. There are, of course, so many more who deserve admiration.
2. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Used to be a night owl but more of an early bird now.
3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry? No sure if I wear a lot but I do like jewelry. I wear a watch, ring, earrings, and a necklace every day. Sometimes add a bracelet or two as well.
4. Do you like to walk or run?
I like to walk. I have never liked to run.

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why?
There are so many! I've been reading a lot of WW2 historical fiction lately, much of it set in France, and I'm so impressed with the people who were in the Resistance. They showed such strength in a time of uncertainty (to put it mildly)
2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Is there a category of bird that's not early, not late? hmm, time for a little research. 5 minutes later: those of us who are neither are referred to as "intermediates". That's me, an intermediate.
3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry?
It depends on the definition. I wear small gold sleeper hoops and my wedding rings every day. If I go out to work or with friends, I change the earrings to something pretty and add a necklace if the neckline is right. Sometimes I add a bracelet. Is that a lot?
4. Do you like to walk or run?
Walk. Man and I walk between 4 and 12 km every day. I'm not a fan of running

1. Nameless people who fought for civil rights and continue the fight. I admire people who came before me for what they endured to have people of color have the same rights that I have just because of skin tone. Men & women loss their lives for their beliefs.

2. Night owl

3. No

1. I always admired Princess Diana. She didn't let her status prevent her from being a hands-on mom, advocate for those with AIDS, land mines, etc...

2. early bird

3. Not really - 2 rings and earrings daily. Necklace or bracelet occasionally.

4. Walk - love it when it's within a big city.

1. Is there anyone from history that you really admire? Why? Harriet Tubman for her bravery in helping others and risking her own life multiple times. Can't wait to see the movie about her!
[C
2. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Definitely an early bird, although now that I'm retired, I can stay up much later than I did when I was teaching.

3. Do you wear a lot of jewelry? Mostly costume necklaces, Alex and Ani bracelets and earrings.

4. Do you like to walk or run? Yes. I have walk-run intervals including the half marathon distance and am now working towards a 7 mile race next week.

1. There are so many that I admire from history I can't pick one. I do think that the wives of our Founding Fathers were strong, intelligent women who inspired their husbands and helped to form our nation but they never get enough credit. Since I like to consider myself forward thinking, instead of picking someone I admire from the past, I am going to name someone that I think deserves to be admired in the future. Greta Thunberg.
2. Night Owl
3. Very little jewelry since I retired. I used to wear earrings, bracelets and necklaces that complimented my outfits. Now, what compliments jeans, tees and aprons?
4. I used to like to run, then I liked to walk and now my feet are giving me problems so even that has taken a seat. Not as sad about giving up running as I am about giving up wearing heels all the time.

2. I used to think of myself as a night owl, but I think Iím really an early bird.
3. Usually stud earrings, my Fitbit and a simple, small pendant necklace.
4. I love running and I walking. But my bad knees (thanks genetics!) donít like running at all, so my pup and I walk.

I admire everyone who contributed their skills and talents to improve the lives of others, including teachers of the past who taught in very difficult circumstances.

I was a moderate night owl, but less as I age. Now, I'm in bed by ten or eleven, but never before that.

I am a jewelry fan but mostly I only wear a small silver watch and a delicate white gold necklace with a tiny diamond cross.

I love walking my dog every day. It's one of my favorite things to do.

Do you wear a lot of jewelry? Not really
