I've been tagged - what is this?

Okay Cici and Chelette you got me. I haven't done this before, but I'll give it a try...
"The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer."

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
In summer 1998, I took a 2 and half week long trip to Ireland with my son. I had long wanted to go to the remote sacred site - Skellig Michael - a remote rock with stone beehive huts which served as monks' dwellings a thousand years ago.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
It's 11 pm so I'll write about tommorrow:
Wait for delivery (which may or may not come); have a student coming to do some household repairs, phone conference 10 am-?; clean for visitors coming Sat., run errands...
3) Snacks I enjoy:
those little square wafer cookies they sell in Trader Joes and Whole Food- lemon are my favorite; ice cream, sorbet; carbs...

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy my brother a house; help my son out,but don't give him a lot of money; quit my job and work to improve special education in Latin America and set up a foundation; rather than buy or build a big house - buy a few small houses or apartments in places I'd like to spend time every year (an island in Ireland or Scotland, someplace in Latin America; Boston; the coast of Maine); buy a bookstore in a seaside location...

5) Places I have lived:
Germany, Kentucky, California, Japan, Georgia, Iowa, Connecticut, Boston, Maryland, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Spain.

6) Jobs I have had:
Public school teacher in Boston (17 years) then college professor in DC.

I'm going to tag:
