    Lisa, Katie and I loved it. Like Joy, I noticed your comment “it does get better as you get older” . And since your Irish, I think you’ll like this quote from the Irish Poet, Samuel Beckett. It’s one of my favorites.

    “Perhaps my best years are gone….but, I wouldn’t want them back. Not with the fire in me now.”

    Great interview and I love the quote Uncle Pete
