Saturday Night at Seaver's Place

Well it is Saturday night and you know what that means . . . .I finally find myself ready, willing and able to play along with the fun and games over at Genea-Musings. It's Saturday Night Fun over at Randy Seaver's place.

Here is the game o'the week -

Over on Facebook, some people have been posting their "3s of Me" with information about themselves providing three responses in different categories like "Three names I go by," "Three jobs I've had," "Three favorite drinks," etc. You get the idea. So here is your assignment, if you decide to accept it (this is not Mission Impossible, of course):

Tell us your three responses to the questions:
