1. Daughter #2 born on the second.

2. I'd recycle my research paper in college, "Aquatic Therapy/Gait Cycle/Post-stroke" in a nut-shell. I know, I fell asleep as I typed it. But seriously, I would pick something that I am interested in like baseball.

3. My dad was busy developing his business when I was the same age my oldest daughter is now. I vowed to spend more time with her than my dad did with me, take her places on my own, without my wife. Took her to 2 Cavs game this year, just her and I, she watched the entire game. It was fun. However, I must say my parents were good parents.

4. Mexico, if I could live right on the beach.
Ireland, have been there, it was very cool. Could learn to drive on the left and English is th primary language.
For some odd reason, I've always wanted to live in Sweden too.

5. Italy junoir year of high school

1. 2 more checkups at the baby doctor with the wife. Both were clear of any problems/issues, which is always very positive.

2. Plastic production and the various fruit/produce shaped options for molding.

3. Can't lie, my parents were pretty spot on with the whole child raising experience.

4. Mexico. They're all coming up here anyway, just as soon fill in the gaps.

5. Potato chip factory. It was a game-changer for me.

1) my dad got out of the hospital today after 5 weeks.
2) the lack of business ethics which led to the financial meltdown in a post enron/sarbanes oxley world.
3)no kids but i am happy with how my parents raised me
4)USA, preferaby in the south east which may happen...
5)Field trip? No field trips for Hebner.

Off topic, that you tube link that JB posted upthread is dubious. Cuyahoga county has been run by dems for decades and is the laughing stock/arm pit of Ohio only tied by Y-town. The dude is funny but his premise is questionable at best. in my anonymous internet opinion

I got attached.

2. If you had to write a 20-page paper on the topic of your choice, what would you write about?

The 1980 NFL Season.

3. If you plan on having kids of your own (or already have), what is (was) the one thing you vow(ed) to do better than your parents/guardians did?

Hopefully I'd be a little more demanding. Then again they had four kids and enough work getting us through childhood intact. So I am not judging.

United States. Manhattan or the Loop.

5. What was your favorite field trip in school?

AP History, Junior Year (1991-92) train trip to Chicago. We had to get our names drawn out of a hat to go, and mine got drawn. :cheers:

1. Now that April's ending, what's the best thing that happened to you this past month?
-The weather was warm enough for me to relax outside.

2. If you had to write a 20-page paper on the topic of your choice, what would you write about?
-Any military leader with preference to pre-Korea military. Wrote a 25 page paper on James Doolittle in college and it was an excellent learning experience.

3. If you plan on having kids of your own (or already have), what is (was) the one thing you vow(ed) to do better than your parents/guardians did?
-My parents were great parents but I would try to instill more emphasis on planning, especially in high school. I am not saying to have your life/career planned by age 12 but just keep an eye on the road ahead cause you are on it 10 times quicker than you expect to be.

4. If you could live in any country in the world, what would it be and why?
-USA, Savannah, Georgia. Prettiest place I have been, close to the beach, and I would own a nice home in the historic district which is in walking distance to all I need.

5. What was your favorite field trip in school?
