That is quite enough I think but if you want to know my mind, how my mind rolls you have to look no further than the founding father's of America. People like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, my great, great grandfather Israel Putnam - Abraham Lincoln, Billy Graham, Vernon McGee and so many more. By reading their words I know their minds. My father, John, taught me what not to do. But most of all - my mind, my goodness and love of humanity comes from Betty Jean my mother. She taught me that 'actions speak louder than words'. No truer words were ever spoken. 

 I will end my favorite things with my mother's favorite song when I was growing up:

 Que Sera Sera
