Beatles Weekly

Beatles-Birthday Song by Beatles Weekly

10 Things You Didn't Know About Mike Buthe!!!

Every issue, Us Weekly runs a feature called "25 Things You Don't Know About Me," in which a celebrity writes up 25 interesting facts about themselves to share with readers (Laura's guilty pleasure). This year at Forest Trail, our celebrities share some wonderful tidbits about themselves. Be thinking what you would include!!! You never know when you may be asked.

Heeeeeere's Mike!

10. I took 10 years of piano lessons from 7 years old till 17.

9. I can speak enough Spanish to get by and some French.

8. In 1998, I traveled to Europe on my own for 3 weeks, visiting Italy, Switzerland, Paris, and London.

7. I used to run the cameras for a morning news broadcast in Illinois and had to get up around 3:30 a.m. each time I worked that shift. I also was the director for a small movie review segment on a local station.

6. In middle school, I had the chicken pox and stayed home for over a week, watching “Star Wars” each day.

5. One of my favorite TV shows is “The Amazing Race” and I applied twice to compete on it.

4. I really enjoy reading the novel series “Forgotten Realms”, similar to Dungeons and Dragons.

3. One year for Christmas, I wrote on my list that I wanted a book with every law in it so I could learn to be a lawyer. I also asked for a book with every disease in it so I could become a doctor.

2. Although I really enjoy the standard comic book heroes, I also enjoy a lot of the “independent” lines that do not have any superheroes.

1. I competed in a Rubik’s Cube competition as a kid. I got past the first round, but not the second. They gave me a t-shirt.
