HAVE YOU EVER WORKED WITH A NOTABLE PERSON OR CELEBRITY? IF SO, WHO? One day a customer I recognized, but couldn't quite figure out who it was, came in. He turned out to be Tom Wilkinson, a character actor who has been in movies such as "The Full Monty" and the "John Adams" miniseries, where he played Benjamin Franklin.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE THINKING ABOUT STARTING A BUSINESS RIGHT NOW? Get a government job. No, I'm only kidding. Well, not really. Really though, be fearless if you are planning to open a business.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO BE DOING WHEN NOT WORKING? I love being outdoors, so anything outdoors.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE FIVE YEARS FROM NOW? On a beach sipping on a piña colada.

WHO WOULD YOU RATHER SPEND TIME WITH, WARREN BUFFETT, DORIS BUFFETT OR JIMMY BUFFETT? See the above answer. That's a good hint, I think.

540/373-4984 or 540/371-7932
