    I can't think of foods I hated as a kid and now love.
    Always loved liver. Other than beans and beets, there aren't too many foods that I don't like.
    I enjoyed my parents music. They didn't play much, but mostly it was Paul Robeson who I still think was great.
    My musical education was mostly formed by my older brother. He introduced me to Elton John, The Band, Procol Harum, among others.
    I have a fond memory of the era of the death songs; "Our Last Kiss", "Tell Laura I Love Her", "Teen Angel".
    That was the music on the radio that I grew up with.
    I used to say that "I liked all music as long as it was done well, and opera can't be done well".
    I've since discovered I was wrong. I love opera live. That's my wife's fault.
    The thermostat is at 68, in the winter, 72 in the summer.
    No toys left, and nothing really special springs to mind. I grew up in a neighbourhood with tons of kids around. We spent our time outside playing tag, hide & Seek, baseball, basketball, etc. Toys weren't a big part of my life, unless you consider the Scrabble board a toy.
