Feast One Hundred & Sixty Nine

A Hoagie !


What was your first “real” job?

I worked at a Deli. I made cheesesteaks and hoagie’s at lighting speed.

The cheesesteak is a comfort food for natives of the Philadelphia region. It was invented in the city in 1930 and is considered to be a city icon along with other foods such as Tastykakes, water ice, the Philadelphia soft pretzel, hoagies, and scrapple.


Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?

I would go inside my head or for a walk.
If I had some money I could really be creative.
A girl can dream eh?
I would love to spark my creativity in Ireland or Australia!

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?


Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

I am embarrassed when I do something stupid.
I have noticed that….
The probability of someone watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your action.

I like this quote:

“Perhaps, on the whole, embarrassment and perplexity are a kind of natural accompaniment to life and movement; and it is better to be driven out of your senses with thinking which of two things you ought to do than to do nothing whatever, and be utterly uninteresting to all the world.”
~Margaret Oliphant

Main Course

What values did your parents instill in you?

Love, Faith, Goodness, Compassion, Simplicity- The greatest joy can be found in simple things. The beauty in nature and life is incredible! My Dad took the time to be with me and witness the awe and beauty of the sunrises and sunsets. He held my hand as we walked along the beach listening to the sound of the waves, taking notice of the different tides, watching and listening to the birds, feeling the sand on our feet and the breeze on our faces. We took long drives to witness the beauty of the fall colors. Harmony, Concern for Others, Practicality, Integrity, Honesty, Respect, Interest, Tolerance, Openness, Commitment, Determination, Passion, Drive, Enthusiasm, Self-Reliance, Generosity, Responsibility, Honor, Courage, Empathy, Gratitude, and Continuous Improvement and progress throughout life.

“But some emotions don't make a lot of noise. It's hard to hear pride. Caring is real faint - like a heartbeat. And pure love - why, some days it's so quiet, you don't even know it's there.”


Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

Not every place makes a good cheese steak sandwich. Some even use a packaged mix to dump in the role, throw in the microwave, and serve. Those are the worst.
My first real job full time was in the watch factory.
My first real job part time was detassling seed corn.
