  • What is one invention that you just couldn’t live without?  Hair dryer

 

  • Other than safety and fuel efficiency, what is one aspect that you will not compromise on when searching for a new car?  Manual transmission

 

  • If someone promised you enough money to remodel/redecorate one room of your house, which room would that be?  The kitchen – hopefully that includes a personal chef, as I hate to cook!

 

  • Write out in three steps what your plan of action would be if a mouse just ran by your door. 
  1. Follow the mouse to try to get to it before the cats see it.  Hopefully a box or paper bag is nearby to scoop it up and carry it to safety. 
  2. If I could not catch it initially, I would get a live trap and bait it with apples or cereal (or some other irresistible snack) and hope the little guy finds the food.  Check the trap every day.
  3. Hopefully the mouse has been tempted by the delicious snacks and gets caught in the live trap.  If so, I would then take it to be released.  Preferably in a park or somewhere it could get food but not find its way to another house.
