I try to keep in my mind the simple question: Am I trying to do good or make myself look good?

Joseph B. Wirthlin

I am into nature and seeing whales. I went whale-watching, and I was really looking forward to that, but when you see it on TV and you see other programs do it, you're seeing close-ups of these massive creatures, and the music that's added gives you a certain feeling.

Bjorn was a different breed, I threw my best material at him, but he would never smile, but that added to the charm when he played me and Mac. We were going nuts and losing our mind and he was sitting back like he was on a Sunday stroll.
To show a child what once delighted you, to find the child's delight added to your own - this is happiness.
