What are at least 3 activities that you like doing on the weekends when you're not doing insurance?
I go line dancing about 3-4 nights a week (my version of going to the gym). In the fall there is a religious celebration called Garba. Which I go out of town on the weekends to celebrate. It is similar to line dancing, but Indian people dancing. I love hanging out with friends and family. Just enjoying life and trying new spontaneous things.

I love country music and love my 4WD pickup truck.
What was the last book you read? What did you enjoy about it?
A Land Remembered by Patrick D. The author paints a story with his words that captures the true life of 3 generations of a pioneer family in the wilds of Florida in the mid-eighteen hundreds through the next 100 years. I loved reading about how the family progressed and got through trials and tribulations
