  • Do you think there is such a thing as a ‘gendered’ brain? 
  • What is the silliest fear you have?
  • Out of your family members, who are you closest to?
  • What is something you’ll NEVER do again?


Do you think there is such a thing as a ‘gendered’ brain? 

Simon Baron-Cohen, and a reputable team of researchers conducted a substantive study of infant brains undertaken at Cambridge in 2001 which suggests that newborn girls respond, on average, more positively to faces and baby boys to objects — and you can see where that takes us. At birth you haven’t been conditioned by society yet.

What is the silliest fear you have?

Spiders nesting in gloves and shoes

Out of your family members, who are you closest to?

The one I’m with?

What is something you’ll NEVER do again?

  • Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist? 
  • Can War ever be just? 
  • Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?
  • Are you health conscious?


Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?

Just some thoughts …

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” – Oscar Wilde

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses.” – Alphonse Karr

“You’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down” – Charlie Chaplin

Can War ever be just?

Just some thoughts … from almost 100 years ago

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” – Douglas MacArthur

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”  – Douglas MacArthur

“The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It’s the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other.” – Douglas MacArthur

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”  – Douglas MacArthur

Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?

Just some thoughts …

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a constant attitude.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”  – Martin Luther King Jr.

Are you health conscious?

Just some thoughts …

“It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not.” – Carl Sandburg

“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.”  – Mark Twain

“You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

“If you can’t fly, the run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?
  • What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?
  • Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?
  • Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?


Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?

Is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

I’ll tell you the worst! Answering questions with questions.

What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?

Unexpectedness!

When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?

One would have to have a ‘big belly’ for a big belly laugh. I deny such things exist!!!

Alvin Alexander

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?

I always wondered about the dinosaurs?

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?

James (5 letters) … Jimmy (5 letters)

It’s just a crazy, crazy world!

And for your enjoyment…

The lyrics are here.

  • What social stigma does society need to get over already?
  • What was the last photo you took?
  • When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?
  • What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?


What social stigma does society need to get over already?

I wish that political parties would chose to listen to each other instead of seeing opponents as evil and need to be ostracized from society.

I know that many of the worst are supposedly on the fringes of the parties, but if the center of the party does not take a stand against stupidity… the end may not be pretty.

What was the last photo you took?

I took some great pictures of the local arboretum.

When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?

Nope … I don’t snoop.

Nope … Not going there.

You pick the answer you like.

What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?

I am like the old-fashioned doll that closes its eyes as soon as its head is tilted back. Sleep is wonderful.

  • Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world?  (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove)
  • Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction?
  • What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement?
  • What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?


Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world?  (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove)

Nope…

Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction?

Raspberry, blackberry, peach, strawberry, or banana on a waffle cone or in a milk shake.

Freshly scooped butter pecan, chocolate chip, moose tracks, or rocky road in a bowl.

A banana split made with French vanilla ice cream with pineapple, strawberries, chocolate syrup, and butterscotch syrup, sprinkled with shredded coconut.

What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement?

A family in Cat-in-the-hat hats walking down the boulevard.

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?

AK-47s

  • If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?
  • As a child, did you have a nickname?  Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?
  • Give us three words that describe you:
  • Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)?  Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?
  • If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?  Why?


If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?

If I could interview someone (not a celebrity) from my lifetime… it would be the Chief Usher of the White House, Gary J. Walters. He would have been the Chief Usher for President Reagan, President George H. W. Bush. President Bill Clinton, and President George W. Bush.

“The Chief Usher oversees the First Family’s private as well as public life, meeting the private needs of the family and working to ensure that public and private events do not conflict. Generally, the Chief Usher hosts a meeting with all White House offices early on every Monday morning to review the week’s events and ensure that there are no problems.” Wikipedia

I bet there would be stories to tell.

(Yes, I know it might have been more interesting to do the Chief Usher for President Obama or President Trump… but they each have their own. I wanted more juicy tidbits than just from one president.)

As a child, did you have a nickname?  Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?

Give us three words that describe you: At the present time… Hopefully creative, incessantly hungry, and eternally optimistic. (Yes, I know that is more than three.)

Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)?  Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?

I have to work hard at not going to sleep watching just one movie… why would I want to sleep through two?

If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?  Why?

There are many questions which I would love to have answered about the past… but according to science fiction authorities there could be a problem with talking to yourself and causing some kind of cataclysmic event from bringing about change.

I suspect, that if it true about cataclysmic changes from talking to yourself in the past, it is probably true about talking to yourself in the future?

I guess I will be have to be happy with my, often stimulating… always intriguing, discussions that I have with myself in the present.

  • Was the last thing you read digital or print?
  • Are you more an extrovert or introvert?
  • How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?
  • Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not?


Was the last thing you read digital or print?

  • THE CHEF by James Patterson with Max DiLallo
  • CELTIC EMPIRE by Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler
  • RUN AWAY by Harlan Coben
  • THE SILENT PATIENT by Alex Michaelides
  • WOLF PACK by C.J. Box
  • WILD CARD by Stuart Woods

Are you more an extrovert or introvert?

  • Am I with other people?

How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?

Man, where do I start…

  • Sometimes houses are red… Red is not just for barns.
  • When people get divorced, one of them does not HAVE TO LEAVE the country.
  • Some bulls don’t have horns.
  • Not all dogs are friendly.
  • Corn in the garden (when they first emerge) look an awful lot like weeds.
  • I was right about one thing… Dogs have a great life!

Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not?

  • It’s part of The Circle of Life… Live each day as if it’s your last.
