Who is playing on your iPod?I don't own one. Really I don't plan to either.

What book are you currently reading? "Under God" by Toby Mac is on my desk right now.

What is the best getaway location, local or abroad? I really don't have the slightest. Wheeler Angus Farm is my personal favorite and Columbia Missouri to see our grandkids is a great one also.
