Yes.If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be, what would you serve and what would you talk about? Princess Diana, Mother Theresa and Meryl Streep. I’d serve some fabulous Italian meal cooked by ANYONE ELSE but me, and we would talk about anything that comes to mind – life, faith, love. What’s the greatest invention of all time? The wheel … fire … no … the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup!
