A. Go to Australia.
B. See Billy Joel in concert.
C. My own wedding.
D. Parasail.
E. Swim with dolphins.

302. Will you try to accomplish any of these things within the next year?
I'm always trying to accomplish these things.

303. What do you feel controlled by?
I'd like to say the Holy Spirit.

304. If Jesus appeared to you and told you that the moon was made of green cheese would you believe him?
Sure would. And then I'd ask him to take me to see it.

305. What is one thing you are sure of?
My faith in Jesus Christ and the fact that I will live with him forever.

306. At what part of the day do you feel the most alert?

Usually the afternoon. Between 11-3.

307. Have you ever played in a band?
Can't say that I have. But Kristin Berry and I had a plan for a band all laid out once upon a time. It just never panned out.

308. Have you ever stared into the ocean thinking 'early creatures crawled outta that'?
Nope. I usualyl stare into the ocean thinking, "God made all of that."

309. If not, what do you think of when you are staring into the ocean?
See 308.

310. Do you like the mental challenge of chess or other games?

A puzzle.

That's tough. On one hand, I think if you are willing to take the life of someone else then you should be willing to lose your life as a consequence to that action. However, on the other hand, it's punishment enough for some to just live with the choice that they have made. Also my God is a God of second chances, and I'm taught to strive to be more like Him. So...

Yep. A couple of times.

343. Have you ever fired a gun?
A pellit gun. And a paint ball gun.

344. Are people becoming more afraid of each other?
