Joseph Monninger
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What you lose in the whirlygig, you get back in the ding dong.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. New Hampshire. I love this state.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Marshmallow Fluff.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I could say corny stuff about my wife and son, but I don't think that's what this question is after. I guess I'll say that I've recently been impressed by the young people who are starting up non-profits to help others. That gives me hope..

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I'm not sure about my greatest achievement, but being a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa was probably the "hardest" thing I've ever done...and therefore maybe my biggest achievement.
