If you could meet any person (dead or alive) and just sit and talk with them for an hour, who would it be?

My pick would be da Vinci. His mind has always fascinated me. I would love to hear his viewpoints on any subject.

I would like to find out what a Founding Father thinks of the current state of affairs in the United States. Am not sure which one I would like to hear from though. Benjamin Franklin maybe or Thomas Jefferson.

Barb,

Words cannot express how sorry I am. And yes, so completely understandable. I hope you get that opportunity whether it be in a dream or elsewhere. They are always in our hearts for sure.

I would pick ancestors that imigrated to the U.S. Thought provoking topic. Like our founding fathers, I'm sure they'd have a thing or two to say about today's society. ;D

The lottery balls the day before they are seen in the tray to know which ones they are on a multimillion dollar lottery.

I really want to send some money to charity to avoid some of these taxes that Uncle Sam imposes on us.

Reminds me of a television show of the late 70's, Meeting of the Minds. Steve Allen put it together and was host. He would have 3 or 4 guests each week in a roundtable discussion of all topics imaginable. The catch was that his guests would be historical figures such as Michaelangelo, Ben Franklin, Florence Nightengale, Genghis Khan, Gandhi, and Cromwell. Okay, they would be actors portraying those people, as much in character as possible. And the script tried to quote them as closely as they could. It was a hoot to see Attila the Hun and Emily Dickinson interacting.

I guess one of my choices for a dinner companion would be Steve Allen.

My mother - I have so many questions I should have asked her when she was alive.

Are we limited to one person? Tal, I'd pick Ben Franklin as my first choice also. Thomas Edison would be my second.

Barb, what a lovely thought. I know they are always with us in our heart. You have my deepest sympathy and I'm sure your "Little Angel" is watching over you.
