Q: What are your plans for this weekend?
Wilson: Taking advantage of the long weekend to spend time with my family.
Q: What are you really looking forward to? Anything special planned?

Q: What do you like to watch and read on the weekend?
Wilson: Either reading to my kids or reading whatever non-fiction book of the moment. Right now I’m reading “Hero” about Lawrence of Arabia. Talk about an impressive guy. Also very illuminating about the Middle East.
Q: What workout routines or activities do you like to do on the weekend?

Wilson: My wife is from Perth, Australia, and many a Sunday morning is spent Skyping friends and family across the Pacific.
