Did you have to help out with chores when you were growing up?  If so, what were you assigned to do?

As we were growing up, we did not have chore lists. We were expected to keep our rooms in some semblance of order, and do our homework. We often took turns setting the table and helping in the kitchen. I got to mow the lawn, but I did not realize that mowing was a chore until I was about 30-years-old?

If I was going to have a friend over for the weekend, it became my turn to assist in cleaning all the front rooms. My room was to be a tad bit cleaner than usual as well.

Have you ever researched your family tree?   What do you know about your family’s roots?

I have never researcher my family tree. I have a relative who was completed this task and written a books about two of four family lines.

I think it would be exciting to do the ancestry.com stuff, but I just haven’t done it.

What’s your cure for hiccups?

When someone has the hiccups, the best cure is to sneak up behind them and yell at the top of your lungs to scare the bejesus out of them.

I truly don’t know who effective it is…. But I do love to do it!

What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?  Either figuratively or literally?

At every political speech, I have to be careful not to allow my eyes to rotate all the way back into my skull. Especially when one says, “And if I am elected, I promise to….”

What’s the biggest screw up in the kitchen that you were responsible for?

Wow! There are FAR, FAR too many to mention…

What, in your opinion, makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

The need to explain the unexplained… Plus, now ALL THINGS in science and politics seem extremely politically driven. I suspect there are more conspiracy theorists now than ever before!

In 40 years what will people be nostalgic for?

  • CD music (almost true now.)
  • Monitors (of any type, flat-screen televisions included)
  • Fit-bits
  • I-phones
  • Stoves/ ranges in the kitchen
  • Bathtubs
  • Paperback books
  • Newsprint newspapers

Is a hot dog a sandwich? 

Yes… It has meat, bread, condiments… All the things necessary for a sandwich.

  • Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?  
  • What’s something on your personal bucket list?

  • Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?


Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?  

For me, a telephone is only supposed to answer calls… and a computer is a computer, as long as it has enough memory and speed to please me.

What’s something on your personal bucket list?

What would you name your boat if you had one?   The Unsinkable 3? The Please Don’t Sink? Your choice! Also, what would it look like? Do you want a motor yacht, a sailboat, or perhaps a dinghy?

Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?

  • What’s your go-to for unwinding after a stressful event or day?   Can be someone or something – music, pets, family or whatever you choose.
  • The plane you’re flying in is going to crash, no survivors.  If you had one song you could listen to before it happens, what would it be?  Please share the link to the song if you can.
  • What is one thing you’re really, really good at and not ashamed to admit it?  I worded that deliberately because aren’t we taught to be humble and not pushy about our achievements?  Celebrate your ability!
  • Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?


What’s your go-to for unwinding after a stressful event or day?   Can be someone or something – music, pets, family or whatever you choose.

I would begin the evening with classical music and a comfort food supper… steak and fries or spaghetti and garlic bread (of course, with my now neglected Mountain Dew).

The evening would end with reading a great novel to my pup as I fall asleep.

The plane you’re flying in is going to crash, no survivors.  If you had one song you could listen to before it happens, what would it be?  Please share the link to the song if you can.

I would race to the bathroom and once there I would press the button on my MP3 and the Superman Theme would begin. As I spun through the side of the plane, after all of the passengers were safely buckled in, I would lover the plane gently to the ground.

Then I would fly home, planning to have the comfort-food supper mentioned above.

What is one thing you’re really, really good at and not ashamed to admit it?  I worded that deliberately because aren’t we taught to be humble and not pushy about our achievements?  Celebrate your ability!

I am very humble. It would embarrass me to no end to share the twenty-seven things at which I am superb. (Being Superman is one my many hidden talents taht I choose NOT to share. So, don’t tell!) 

Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?

OK… You got me. I am greedy? I would rather lose the pictures.

  • Last week I asked a question about favorite beverages and the overwhelming favorite was coffee.   If you drink coffee, how do you like it best?  Hot, cold, iced, with cream, with sugar or black as black?
  • If you don’t drink coffee, how has that beverage impacted YOUR world?
  • In your opinion, what’s the greatest invention of our age?    
  • Global warming?  Reality or myth?
  • Are you an explorer or more a home body?


Last week I asked a question about favorite beverages and the overwhelming favorite was coffee.   If you drink coffee, how do you like it best?  Hot, cold, iced, with cream, with sugar or black as black?

I do drink coffee on occasion. I like mine with two creamers and two sugars.

If you don’t drink coffee, how has that beverage impacted YOUR world?

I don’t think that the fact that I drink coffee (on occasion), or that my friends probably drink coffee every meal out, has any impact on my life whatsoever.

In your opinion, what’s the greatest invention of our age?

I could not imagine a life without running water, a flushing toilet, and hot water for a shower. Yes, I could imagine it… I have camped out for two weeks at a time without either, but now…. No thanks!

Global warming?  Reality or myth?

Just heard on the radio this morning of a learned science/ engineering professor in Minnesota has decided that voting Republican causes more hurricanes to hit the Southern states. With such masters-of-logic in our teaching institutions, why on Earth would I doubt science?

Are you an explorer or more a home body?

Yes! When I am at home, I definitely enjoy being a homebody. Slippers and pastries and the paper each morning. However on a trip, the unexplored places at very appealing!

  • What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (For those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).
  • What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are There Ramifications To Breaking It?
  • Sunrise Person Or Sunset Person?   
  • Do People In Modern Society Anthropomorphize Animals Too Much?


What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (For those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).

Mountain Dew… Getting that barefoot feeling- if you remember the old commercial. In college, it was my go-to drink every meal. Now, I might only have it once every two weeks.

What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are There Ramifications To Breaking It?

Be kind…. That doesn’t mean that you agree with the person or that you are even going to obey/follow their rule or suggestion.

I don’t think there are ever negative ramifications to being kind.

Sunrise Person Or Sunset Person?  

Yes!! I love sunrises and sunsets. With my present schedule, I get to enjoy more sunsets than sunrises.

Do People In Modern Society Anthropomorphize Animals Too Much?

I definitely talk to my pet as if he were human. I do believe that there are people that equate a human life as equal to that of a baby owl or a baby orca. I do think we should be kind and care for owls and orcas, but their lives are not equal in importance. That being said, I suspect that there was a time I might have been tempted to trade my little sister for a puppy? She (my little sister) still might trade me for a pet?
