Who do you live with: My perfect daughters and sometime TCL models Adelaide and Harper Frattallone.

Where would you like to live: No place more than Minnesota (this was written in the summer time).

Your favorite occupation: Helping our great customers at Frattallone's Ace Hardware.

Person you'd like to meet: Beers with Mike Rowe, golf with Tiger Woods and private time with Megan Fox - not in that exact order.

What do you order in a coffee shop: Nothing - black and strong is the way I like it.

3 TCL regulars who you'd like to have dinner with: Ted Ferrell, Ted's brother and Ted's dad - really any of the Ferrell's. We would drink and eat like kings I bet.

Favorite State Fair food: Corn dogs only. No pronto pup - those things are gross.

Favorite TCL moment: When Elizabeth almost shot John Hanson with a loaded nail gun live on tv. We came very close to making YouTube history.

One thing you can't live without: Reliable transportation. I'm only half kidding.

Dream TCL interview/segment: Emily interviewed Mike Tyson once and I wish I could have been there.

What is your motto? Say it once and you'll hear it, say it 100 times and you'll believe it and say it 1,000 times and you'll become it!
