Interviews With Bloggers I Read- Dave’s Corner of the Universe

This is the interview questions I sent out to all the bloggers I read, the first is Dave of Dave’s Corner of the Universe.  So I hope you all like the questions, I went by the Even/Odd Methodology, one serious one not so much.  I will use Dave’s Icon to denote his answers and the other Icon to denote my questions.  I hope you can figure out who is who.

I love Dave’s stuff particularly his interviews with fictional characters like Elllen Ripley (from the Alien’s series), Nick Fury from Marvel Comics,  and Velma Dinkley from the Scooby-Doo Gang.    I also contributed slightly to his Dream Team series with this little nugget The Underwater Lab Heist.

Better-Off-Dead-Sorry folks going to suspend the travel articles for a bit, but in order to continue with some original content on Saturdays I will be interviewing the writers of other blogs I read.  Next week Dave of Dave’s Corner of the Universe.

These fine writers can be found at the far right of my blog with their icons/avatars/pictures showing who or what or how they portray themselves to the reading public.
