Matt Christenson

Matt has written over 60 original songs on his acoustic guitar. 60 songs?!?! Like that’s like, gosh, like, like, um, like…a whole many bunch of songs!!!

Matt didn’t get his first computer until he was in 9th grade. It was the beginning of his love of computers and he eventually became a professional GEEK!

Matt was adopted at birth and has never met his biological parents. I wonder if he looks like them or they look like him?

All of Matt’s front, top teeth are fake.  When Matt was little, he got pushed down during a game and his teeth hit the cement floor. OUCH! Always remember kids: don’t try and eat the floor! It’s disgusting!

Matt and a friend invented a sandwich when he was about 10 years old.  The sandwich was peanut butter, jelly, salami, and cheese.  To this day, he still loves the sandwich…especially a variation of it which is just peanut butter and salami! As Sid the Sloth always says, “Yummo!!!”

Jim Lerberg

Jim just finished his 50th year of playing golf (and he says he’s still not any good.)  Well, I guess it’s never too late to…PRACTICE MORE (or try a new hobby)!! My old swim coach used to say, “Practice doesn’t make perfect. Perfect Practice makes perfect.” Maybe trying some “perfect practice” might help! 🙂

Jim dislikes cooked eggs. However, he loves eggs when they are in cake and cookies! Well, at least he has his priorities straight! I mean…EAT HEALTHY!

Jim is very picky about the freshness of his corn on the cob. He usually goes to a corn field picks the corn right off the stalk and eats it raw! Ok, he doesn’t really do that… But that’s what I call fresh!

Jim grew up with black and white television and an AM radio. My, how times have changed! I wonder what it would be like to live with only black and white television and AM radio…

The first computer Jim saw was as BIG as a house! Ooo, maybe we could live inside a computer instead of a house?!?!? Nah! Did someone just say, “Tron?”
