    I would love to meet Sylvia Browne. I used to watch her all the time on the Montel Williams show. I actually watched her solve a "cold case" from my home town. It was amazing!

    Bill Clinton - I would re elect him anytime!!

    Dolly Parton - she seems to be so friendly and down to earth.

    Dolly Parton - I made a quilt depicting her and her accomplishments for a guild challenge "American Women of Distinction" a couple of years ago.

    Robin Williams, Danny Kaye, Jonathan Winters, Carol Burnette or Tim Conway - all of them would be a dream!

    So many...Barbara Streisand, the former Pope John Paul, Michael Douglas, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Dali Lama...all of them are interesting for different reasons...

    John Wayne. I realize that he is deceased but one of my cousins is married to a decendant of his. His mother and my cousins husbands mother were sisters and Fred is the spitting image of John Wayne and I would just have liked to have seen them side by side. I think it would have been cool.

    I've met quite a few. Most were uninteresting.

    I'll settle instead for a conversation with Ray Odierno.

    Can't really think of too many. I would like to shake Charlie Daniels hand,and sit and chat with Willie Nelson.I would like to have met and talked to and perhaps spent an afternoon fishing with Ronnie VanZant .

    I am more admiring of your average blue collar everyday heros........

    I would like to meet and talk with former Predident George W Bush and his wife Laura. I think they are a wonderful couple and did a lot more for America than they receive credit for.

    Same here. I would have to add Colin Firth and Lewis Hamilton to my list, also ;-)

    I do wish I had been able to meet Brian Clough, a big time hero in my home town, before he died.

    I have to agree ...Brian was a "salt of the earth"man. I recently rented from Netflicks a DVD about his life as a manager and there are some classic Brian Clough quotes. Always honest in his words and true to his word.

    Family member did a family tree, and Bill Clinton is a distance cousin even though I've never meet him in person...

    How great to find someone else who knew, and appreciated, Cloughie :-) One of my dogs is named after him. I still need to see the movie, but wish it had dealt more with his time at Forest. What he did with that team was nothing short of a miracle. One German manager even considers that to be the greatest team of all time! Cloughie did so much with so little compared to the big name teams of that era. He deserved a knighthood and the chance to be England's manager.
