Geography Meme

Ok, this seems a bit odd, but I'll play along...
1. A Place where you have been and your favorite thing there:
Not being a great world traveler, I haven't been many places, but my favorite city is San Francisco. I was overwhelmed by the people, the diversity of cultures, languages, customs, it was an amazing place I would be happy to live in, if I could afford it! Any place where you need a jacket in the last week of June is ok with me

2. A Country you would like to visit and why:
Too easy, Ireland. Got to see the ould sod. Not all of my ancestor came from there, but enough that I claim it as mine.

3. A Place from History you would like to visit and why:
Any place in history? A tough choice. How about Jerusalem around the year 30C.E. I can't think of many more exciting places to be.

4. A Place/Subject you know a lot about:
Well now I know more about modern philosophy than I ever wanted to...
but something I do know a little bit about is the history of the Order of Deacons in the Church, its rise, fall, and restoration. Call it occupational narcissism.

5. A Place you would like to learn more about:
I would love to know more about Ireland, especially the history of Ireland. I know a little (too little) but i would love to learn more. A facsinating people and a fascinating place. Maybe in my spare time...

6. A fictional place you would like to visit:
As much as I would like to come up with something erudite and learned, the one fictional place I would really like to see is the bridge of the starship Enterprise, Next Generation version, of course. I'm as disappointed in me as you are. Oh well...

Oh, I took you up on this, by the way.
How are you feeling...I mean the headaches. Still okay? One of the kids that our kids were on retreat with lost his mother...his name is Keith...she was in the possible process of passing while he was there. He seems to be an amazing young man and very sweet. I dont' know if Hannah met him, but perhaps she recalls us speaking about it there. I know you'll keep him in your prayers. Suzanne

I knew you were a trekker.

You can't fool me.

Hey, I'm not disappointed in that last answer--I knew there was a reason I liked you! ;)
