Back again with another group of questions for
1. What rule of life should never be broken?
Your word should never be broken. A person's word should be gold.
2. What's your favorite family recipe?
My Grandmother's Applesauce Cake.
Unfortunately it died with her. No one in the family has it or could find it written in her recipes. We have all tried to duplicate it, but it is just not the same.
3. Is the media manipulative?
I would have to say yes. With all the forms of media out there today there is a competition to "break" the story or to report it first. But in doing so the media is more apt to report things before validating and confirming them. Many times it is like a gossip mill. Especially with the cable news channels, they give us basic facts but a large portion of their broadcasts are based on their opinions. (Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Stossell, Maher, Hannity, Stewart just to name a few)
4. Hubs and I saw Skyfall last weekend...are you a fan of the Bond films? If so, who's your favorite Bond?
I am not a big "Bond" fan but have seen most of the older Bond films with Sean Connery and Roger Moore. I have only seen a couple of the others, one with Timothy Dalton and one with Pierce Bronson.
Of these four "Bond" actors I believe I like Roger Moore the most.
5. What is one thing you hope people never say about you?
That I am lazy!
6. What's a nearby tourist attraction you'd like to see, but haven't gotten around to visiting?
This would have to be the Grand Ole Opry. I live only an hour away from Nashville and grew up listening to Country Music. "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool". I have visited Opryland (amusement park operated from 1972 to 1997) many times. In my teen and young adult years we would visit the Opryland Hotel at Christmas time to view all the Christmas decorations. My husband and I have even stayed in the Opryland Hotel, (I won a contest and part of it was an overnight stay in the hotel). I have shopped at the Opry Mills Mall (which is built on the Opryland property and beside the Opryland Hotel and the Opry House). But, have never been to the Opry.
7. Where's your favorite tree?
My favorite tree would have to be the Bradford Pear Tree. They have the most beautiful white blooms in early Spring. They are a fast growing tree and usually hold their shape well.
There is a line of these trees along the roadway near my home. I pass them everyday.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I haven't been online much lately. Much of my time has been spent with my kids over the past few weeks. They came over for dinner one night with their significant others. I do love when they are all here.
My daughter and I have been shopping and spent time cleaning out closets getting rid of clothes, shoes and junk. We took some to the consignment shops and some were donated. My daughter received $70 for things she took to Plato's Closet. Better than just hanging in the closet, even if I most likely paid twice that amount for them.
