WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE


This is volume 20!

Have you joined in yet?

Click on the button and head over to Joyce's.



I am late in getting this out today. I took a day for myself yesterday. After bowling I headed to one of the Casinos that is out in that direction. I hadn't been there since we moved out to Riverside. I gambled for about 6 hours and only left about $95. there, not bad at all! I also enjoyed a great meal at the buffet. I was gone from 8am to 8:30 pm so I was pretty tired when I got home.


Why am I telling you this? First of all I am way behind in my reading so I won't be over for a few days. Also I feel like today is April Fool's Day!!! I decided to turn on my computer last night to do my hodgepodge. Well the questions were going right over my head and I just couldn't come up with answers. (and google was really slow!) I answered a few and decided to finish up this morning.

So I go on my computer this morning to finish this. Well I usually answer the questions in Html then I will preview how it looks and go back to Html. Every time I did this the questions would be all discombobulated in Html. Each time! So I ended up having to delete and start over. So that's my story and I am sticking to it. Why am I sharing this with you? Because I said so!


Fudge! (one of Joyce's pseudo-swear words from last week) It is still acting up this morning!!! So I am not sure how this is going to turn out when I hit publish.


So here we go:


1. April rolls in at the end of this week and in celebration of that infamous date (April 1st) answer this question-What is something foolish you've done?

I know there are many and certainly one better then the one I will tell you but nothing else is coming to mind right now. I remember years ago going outside to talk to the paper boy about something and when I came inside Mark mentioned to me that I had a green mask on my face! I am sure my face turned red but we will never know since it was green.


2. With April comes Easter and that classic edible treat known as Peeps...so tell me...what's your favorite way to fix/eat chicken? That wasn't what you were expecting, was it? I 'fooled' you. teehee.

Well I like the Salsa Chicken I made last week but I am going to say my favorite is when Mark grills them with some olive oil, salt, pepper and caraway seeds.


3. What's the best museum you've ever visited? Or your favorite? Or the one you'd most like to visit?

The best museum is the Milwaukee Public Museum in Wisconsin. I have been to many museums, we had several in Chicago but I went to this one back in the late 80's and it was awesome. Actually I looked it up last night and it's a world renowned! I would also like to visit one of the Holocaust Museums and the Smithsonian.


4. You know what they say about April showers...what's your preference-a shower or a bath?

Shower! As far as getting up and out I feel cleanest taking one. A bath is great for soaking in but I seldom have the patience for that. I don't know why I can't enjoy them more. Even in our jet tub I am impatient.


5. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder"...fact or fiction? Why?

Is this a trick question, like is there actually a medical answer for this? I know it's a fact for me! My version of the why is actually to long to explain and I've been wordy enough today.


6. What's your favorite product made/grown in your home state/province?

I don't know. I even googled it so my answer is wine!


7. What is going on in the world today that affects you the most?

I have a long list but I am going to say all the devastation that keeps happening, the natural disasters have taken their toll on me. My heart is broken into a million pieces.


8. Insert your own random thought here.

I heard about this in an email and wanted to share it with you. When you have an x-ray taken and they put one of those apron things on you did you know that they have one for your throat but they don't use it. It will protect you from thyroid cancer so ask for it.

Debby...that is the same exact thing that's been happening to me these past several days! I'll write my post and go to preview it and all of my paragraphs don't start and end like I wanted and my signature is all the way over to the far right or in the middle of my text. It's been driving me BONKERS! I thought it might be an issue with Blogger, but I don't know. I can't tell you how many times I've had to write a post, delete it, and start, again. Did you ever get it worked out? If so, what did you do?

EmptyNester said...

I was having some internet issues earlier too. We grow tourists down here in the low-country. LOL

Hilary said...

I am a shower girl, but love a bubble bath on the weekends... It is so relaxing!

Stella said...

Always enjoy the posts that enable to brecome better acquainted with each other. Thanks for dropping by and leaving such an encourging comment. I appreciate your support and concern.

edshunnybunny said...

Good for you for taking a day just for yourself! I did the same thing, and went out of town to visit an old friedn for the day. It felt good to "escape"! LOL

Joyce said...

I haven't had that problem but I have had the problem where I go to leave a comment and get a message saying I need to sign in-I'm already signed in. When I hit the comment button a second time it lets me post. It's annoying!

Your story on #1 is priceless!

Cherie said...

Sometimes you just need to kick the computer and remind it who's boss - Ha ha!

I live in Potato land!!!!

I think all the natural disasters are effecting me. I think about them alot and how they are effecting the entire world - economy, resources, deaths, illness, etc...scary.

blueviolet said...

I agree about the shower. I just want to get in and get out!

LOL to the wine answer!

Tammy Doane said...

Sometimes give the computer a jerk-that helps me. Enjoyed your answers. Natural disasters affect me also.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I love the new look of your blog...so sweet! Sounds like you had a fun day yesterday...Hope you can rest up and get caught up today!

Brandy@YDK said...

i like your wine answer lol.

Lorie@The Midlife Housewife said...

LOL. Love the green mask story1

Glad I'm not the only one with blogger issues. I was starting to worry about a virus. I am officially blaming everything that goes wrong for the rest of the week on blogger. ;)

Caroline said...

I'm a shower person to in and out. Love your new look.

Michelle said...

I sure hope blogger straightens up for you. Your post looks fine tho.

I got an e-mail about the throat guard also. I'm gonna try to remember to ask for it.

I enjoy a hot shower, seems to be so relaxing.

Expats Again said...

Thanks for the heads up about the X-ray. Good answers today!

LynnMarie said...

Sorry you had some computer issues - there are times that we just want to kick it! Well maybe that's just me. Anyhow, I'm glad you got the hodgepodge up and that you had a good day for yourself.

Amy said...

I love my Mom's homemade fried chicken.. With mashes taters.. I love the chocolate covered peeps too bad the baby does not like chocolate and I get sick. Thanks for your random thought. Have a great night..

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Ugh, how aggravating when you are trying to do your blog. I can't stand issues like that. :o)

I'm with you on the shower!

I didn't know that about x-rays. Wonder how many other things we need to know about.

Happy Day!

Nanato4 said...

I, too, prefer showers. When we remodeled the bathroom at our previous house, we put in a jet tub, and I still didn't take many baths ... I'm like you ... just not patient enough to soak in the tub. I want to get in, get clean and get out! ha!

I didn't know about the shield for your throat when getting x-rays. I'll have to ask for that the next time I get an x-ray (probably at the dentist).

And your post looked just fine, as I'm sure you know by now?

Renegades said...

That's good to know about the x-rays.

Just Be Real said...

Glad you took some time off for yourself Debby. Thank you for sharing this post. Blessings.

I actually just read the same email concerning the neck guard. I don't have to worry about it though, since I don't have a thyroid due to thyroid cancer. I do encourage neck checks as often as you do breast checks!

Goose Hill Farm said...

I always like to read your Hodgepodge answers. It's nice learning things about our blogging friends!

Blessings~
