Tell me...who wouldn't want Daniel Oppong to sing them to sleep? I love his voice more every time I hear it!

I hear you on smashing Billy's cell phone (just insert Randy's name instead of Billy for me.) That is unless I'm calling him to talk about nothing. Then he needs to answer right away.

Most surprised about the mail comment.

Please elaborate about AirOne. Besides the fact that they only play 12 songs what else do you not like about them? I'm personally trying to put my finger on what I don't like about that station.

I'm looking forward to seeing your book on the shelves! Some day someone will say, "I met Francesca Hafner. I walked away and she forgot me immediatley."

I've never burned bread. I knew I wasn't a real chef anyway.

Your maternal great-grandfather lived to be 102 1/2. You can expect to reach that 100 mark easily.

Talk to Pam 7 or 8 times a day? I don't think I have talked to pam 7 or 8 times since I have known her. :) come to think of it I don't talk to anyone 7 or 8 times during one day. That's remarkable Fran.
