Share Your World 2014: Week 49

Whoot Whoot –  What da ya know…  I’m actually doing two in a row on this Share Your World Thing (A record for me lately, LOL).  So here we are at Week 49…  So let’s see what Cee has in store for us….

What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, or other?

What was your favorite toy as a child  . . .  and now?

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

Would you want $100,000 right now or $120,000 in a year (tax Free)?

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?



Ok so what are my answers…..

What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, or other?

In the morning I like my 2 cups of coffee and in the evening I go for about the same with hot tea.  I do, occasionally, enjoy a hot chocolate or (even better) a hot apple cider.    I haven’t had the opportunity to have them very often (and none at all in several years) but hot toddy is also quite good.
What was your favorite toy as a child  . . .  and now?
Favorite toy as a child????  Heck, I don’t even remember what toys I played with.  I mean remember some of the toys that existed back then but really couldn’t say which ones were my favorite.  One that readily comes to mind is the old lincoln logs.  As a child  (and to this day, as time  allows) I really liked to read.  I think that was one of my favorite past times.  Another favorite past time of mine was playing with cards (solitaire).  Also, another toy I remember spending hours with was a “Spinning Wheel” toy:
Looked about like that too (there still around today, but with more bells & whistles & color).  There’s another toy that had strings that you pulled apart and then slackened, back & forth to make the strings intertwine and untwine which in turn made the wheel like object in center spin – I forget what that toy was called but it was another favorite of mine as I recall.  Now a days  I spend most of my time (to be honest) either on my computer or on my phone or reading.

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

This is a toughy….  There are so many different candy’s that I like.  One that I really like is Liberty Orchards Fruit Delights.  Big Hunk is another choice as well as “Hot Tamales” by Mike and Ike.

Would you want $100,000 right now or $120,000 in a year (tax Free)?

I think I could probably wait the one year for the tax free $120 Grand.  After all, we’ve gone this long on a fixed/tight budget  what’s another year (and besides it’s all hypothetical anyway).

And for the last (bonus) question – What are we grateful for from the past week and what are we looking forward to in the next week:

To be honest nothing comes to mind.  I know that probably makes me sound ungrateful but there really hasn’t been anything this past week that is really worth mentioning and I can’t think of anything earth-shattering (or even un-earth-shatterring) coming up this next week.

Cosmic Musicology – Just a Little Fun

Joining in Cosmic Musicology for a little music fun

The rules of this game?

(1) Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle
(2) Say the questions aloud and press play
(3) Use the song title as your answers


Here is the questions posed for this week:

What would you do if you won the lottery?

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

Are you reliable?

Here is my (musical) response to each:

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Proud Mary:  “Rolling, Rolling on the River….  Proud Mary Keep on burning, Big wheel keep on turning….”    I would have to say that winning the lottery wouldn’t change that much for me really.    I think we would probably take care of outstanding bills & debts first and then put the rest into some sort of savings account or (maybe) stocks leaving the principal alone and using the interest as income.  I don’t think that it would really change how we live or the kind of people we are.

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

Country Girl Shake it for me:  I know this doesn’t really match with the song that well, but if I could change  one thing  I think it would have to be (warning this may be a bit TMI for some) not being so large chest/breast(ed).  I think a better way to put would be to a bit more “firm” instead of so loose and flabby.  Nothing like things bouncing around when running.

Are you reliable?

You Should be Dancing:  – Never fails that I get at least one song in these music challenges that makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever and leaves me with  a “Huhhh?” expression on my face.  For this round, that seems to apply to this question”  No Idea how in the world this song would relate to this question.  Only thing that comes to mind is to say that I am a one man woman (am I saying that right?).  While I may have male friends  I am in no way interested in an affair or romantic encounter.  There is only one bed I wish to warm.



Anti-Bucket List #DailyPrompt)

Today’s Daily Prompt is an Anti-Bucket List

What are the top items on your anti-bucket list — those things you never, ever want to do, places you never want to visit, books you never want to read, etc.?

Heck  I don’t even have a bucket list much less an “anti-bucket” list.  I’m not really a big fan of books on history (though I do enjoy reading about how people use to live).  Books on politics are pretty high up on my list and books on technology would probably be up there on the list of “non-interest”.

Can’t really think of too many places that I absolutely wouldn’t want to visit, though I think war laden places would be out.  Can’t think of anything that I’d put on a “bucket list” (if I had one) either.  Since travel for us is pretty much out, I’ve never really thought about places I’d want to go or not go.

As far as things I’d never want to do….  Well bungee jumping pretty well tops that list — Uhh Uh – NO Way – Forget about it.  I don’t necessarily have a fear of heights (that I know of), but those “rides” that take you way way above the landscape below on some sort of bicycle wheel type thing is another one that I would NOT want to do.  Not so sure I’d want to try hand-gliding either.  I’m sure there is more I could think of but just not right now.

So there you have my “anti-bucket” list enjoy and join in the fun with your own list.

Share Your World 2014: Week 48

Cee has another “Share Your World” (Week 48) for us. Below are the questions along with my answers:

What is your favorite toppings on pizza?

I would have to say pineapple. If I could choose more I’d add mushrooms, but not necessarily together with pineapple. Whenever we get pizza in our house (which isn’t often & usually store bought) we tend to go with cheese & maybe add some veges for me and hubby.

I want to learn more about …

Well the obvious answer would be to learn more about the Fire Service and Emergency Services.  Either that or to learn more about how people use to live in say late 1800s and into the early 1900s.   Learning about the history of Fire and Emergency Services would also be interesting.

What are three places you’ve enjoyed visiting?

I haven’t done a lot of travel in my life. Victoria gardens was quite beautiful I recall. Another the whole family enjoys is Sacramento (the California State Railroad Museum & The Historical area right nearby). Now I just need a third place, which isn’t coming to me…. OK, thought of a couple places, but can’t decide between Oregon Trail Interpretive Center (Baker City, OR) or Durango RR Museum (Durango, CO)

Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first?

Don’t have a strong preference on this anymore. Use to be that I’d eat the frosting first, but anymore I switch it up; Sometimes I’ll eat frosting first, sometimes cake, sometimes both together.
