As a newlywed in 2006, the Motley Fool's website convinced me I was capable of investing in the stock market. Now, not only do I manage my own portfolio, I'm able to share what I've learned as a contributor with the Fool. To keep track of my articles, follow me on Twitter

An Interview with thequast

Last updated: 7/18/2014
The Fool:
What's the best restaurant you've ever been to? (Include name, location, and average bill for two.)
El Ranchito, Jackson MI, under $20. Authentic homecooked Guatemalan food. Sadly I hear it's closed down now.
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
Sawyer has a water filter that filters down to the .02 micron...about 10 times more effective than most water filters out there. It's lightweight, and has a lifetime guarantee. Whether camping or travelling overseas it's great.
The Fool:
In what way would society be different if bears had become the dominant sentient species?
There would be way less forest fires. Picnic baskets would be currency.
