Sure you can pick political, musical, dramatic, a writer, a scientist, a cook. a celebrity...anyone who is ALIVE still that you admire or really like (I say this as never say never)...
Let me put it this way - you have a chance to send a special personal invite to this person to stay with you, who would it be?

Ms. Catlady, totally off-topic here but I was reading your profile and I need to ask someone who will know...why is it THE Ohio State University? I always hear grads refer to it this way, and didn't know why! Can you help?

We had the whole cast of "In Plain Sight" film here one day in Feb. The star, Mary McCormack, is a Jersey girl just like me! We did just what any former Jersey Girls do, famous or not. We talked about NJ.
But really, these famous people are just people. So I don't care which one it is.

Because we are the BEST! :)
Actually there is also an Ohio University and I think many years ago there was a rivalry there and people were confusing the two of them.
From the day a student sets foot on campus they are indoctrinated about always saying THE Ohio State University.
However I note that on our web site it is just referred to as Ohio State most of the time. The THE is used in the logo and in any publicity etc in regards to the University.
That's all I was ever told.

I love that show and that actress, plus the actor who plays Marshall.
I would love to host a Jersey boy - Bruce Springsteen. And Nancy Reagan used to come to our town for lunch, so I think Michelle could make a shopping excursion here now.

Sure you do! You must have a heart throb like Sam Elliot (with moustache) or writer you enjoy like John Grisham? Someone who you would find very interesting to have on your list. What about a comedian like Steve Martin? Falling down your entry stairs?

Nice! Thanks for explaining. I visited OSU campus once for a conference and the people in Columbus were about the friendliest I've met anywhere. Ate at the Columbus Fish Market for dinner...can STILL taste the garlic mashed potatoes!
Man, can you tell it's getting close to dinner time???

Please tell me you mean the actor that plays Marshall is, not Bruce. I will be destroyed if it is the latter...

We actually have some playwrights staying with us now who are well-known in the theater world. All three of them have plays running in our theater festival in July.
Victor Lodato - here for 9 nights, perhaps our longest stay (all at one time). Nice guy and seems to be settling into the B&B lifestyle - he's chatting up all our guests.
Beau Willimon - very young guy, his play Farragut North is getting a lot of buzz off-Broadway and has been optioned for a film by George Clooney. His bio says he's from Missouri but he sounds Aussie to me. He just checked in today so I haven't got to grill him yet. He already made fun of how many pillows are on the bed.
Michael Weller - he is arriving very late tonight (and I won't be waiting up - he's being brought here by one of the production guys who knows his way around) so I haven't met him yet. There is the least amount of info about him on the web.

I don't really know. I guess if i didn't have to deal with the publicity and all of the who ha involved I'd opt for the Dalai Lama and the Obamas. But really? I like the regular people who have done interesting things with their lives.
