I love fast cars. Between my father, my brother, and me, we own five V-8 Mustangs ranging from the years 1966-2011. My childhood memories consist of Sundays full of the background noise of televised car races that usually drove my mother out of the house for peace from the sounds of hours of monotonous revving engines.

I love wiener dogs, especially the longhaired variety. As a kid, I’d always wanted a Doberman, but that all changed when my mum brought home a longhaired Dachshund puppy when I was 12 years old. Over the last 30 years, there’s only been one kind of dog in my life. I suppose I put my love of these little dogs down to their personalities. They’re tough, funny, conniving and far too clever for their own good.
