Good morning all! Missed QOTD on Friday due to work issues.


Today's Question(s):

Took a cruise in January. It's about time to book another one. I'm ready!!!

Have you ever left the country ?
Just last month I was in Vancouver & Calgary.

Took our RV to Ohio to visit theme parks (coasters!!!) and the museum at Wright Patterson AFB.

Plane?
Train?
Cruise?
Car?
Motorcycle?
Foot?


Bonus Question:

On an Airplane do you prefer...
Aisle or window seat? I like window seats on the F side. I can fall asleep really easily against that wall. For some reason I can't get comfortable enough in an A side seat.
Front or middle or back of the plane? Doesn't matter.
Do you mind sitting in the emergency exit seat? No problem. That's a premium seat now.

Have you ever been scared or afraid during a flight?
I get a little uncomfortable when we hit turbulence ever since that US Air flight went down near Pittsburgh airport in the early 90's. That wreck bugs me for some reason.

Inquiring Minds Question:

Oh heck yeah!!!

If so what have they done?
Name it...

Today's Question(s):

When was the last time you took a vacation? March 2010.
Have you ever left the country? Yes. I've been to Canada several times, and in March last year went on my first cruise, which took me to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize.

What was your best vacation? It's a tie between the cruise and a trip I took to Washington state i 1993. The biggest thrill of my life on a vacation was when I hiked on Mt. Rainier.

Extra Credit Question:
What is your preferred method of travel?
Plane?
Train?
Cruise?
Car?
Motorcycle?
Foot?
All of the above. It depends entirely on the destination, how much time I have, etc. I've never been on a train ride longer than 1.5 hours, but think I would really enjoy a cross-country train trip. Would like to try that sometime.

Bonus Question:
On an Airplane do you prefer...
Aisle or window seat?
Front or middle or back of the plane? I like sitting over, or near, the wing.
Do you mind sitting in the emergency exit seat? No, I don't mind it.
Have you ever been scared or afraid during a flight? Yes. I'm a little claustrophobic, and if I can't see out the window I feel panicky. I was on a short flight one time in thick fog, and it was a very bumpy ride, too. That was around 1979, and I was really frightened! Not sure whether it would bother me as much now, but I remember being really freaked out by the fact that the windows looked like they were painted grey.

Inquiring Minds Question:
Has anyone in your family ever embarrassed you? Yes.
If so what have they done? My aunt almost always complains about something to the server when we dine out at a restaurant. Embarrasses the heck out of me, because usually her complaints are unfounded.

Just for Fun:
What is a family tradition you値l pass on to your kids? I have no kids.

Some random facts:
Scientists have performed brain surgery on cockroaches.

Every hamster in the U.S. today comes from a single litter captured in Syria in 1930 I've heard this before. Strange little factoid.

The largest known kidney stone weighed three pounds.

Billy goats urinate on their own heads to smell more attractive to females.

Have a great weekend everyone! I'll second that emotion!

Hi there Big Mike, I love when u do the questions- ur timing is excellent especially for insomniacs.

Happy Saturday,

I have not been on vacation since last summer and Mt. Airy NC was my very best in a long time. I love North Carolina I see stars every time I think about Goobers I see stars and fireworks in a good way every time I think of it.

I have been out of the country but it has been a minute.

I prefer a combination of travel plane, car, train...

I don't really have a preference flying beyond first or business class.

I am sure I have been embarrassed by family and I have embarrassed family and that's all I have to say about that.

I don't know about any family traditions per se. When u have boys the traditions are really not that set.

Love and Peace

Today's Question(s):


When was the last time you took a vacation?
It has been probably 15 years since I took a real vacation. That was a 2 week road trip thru Washington and Oregon and the very Northern tip of California.

Have you ever left the country ?
Oh once or twice or so many times I have lost count. However it has always been work related.


What was your best vacation?
When I was 10 and my dad had to go to school in Oklahoma. We took a week getting there, spent 16 weeks there and 2 weeks getting back to Alaska. During that time we went to the Ozark Mountains, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Glacier National Park, the Meteor Crater, the Petrified Forest, the Painted Desert, and drove the Alaskan Highway.

Do you mind sitting in the emergency exit seat?
Use to sit there all the time. Now one has to be a prefered member to have much chance of getting one

Have you ever been scared or afraid during a flight?
Never scared or afraid. I was concerned once going into Detroit. We were on final approach when the pilot went to full power and we started climbing real fast. The next day I saw on the news there had been a near miss at Detroit. One of the flights listed was the one I was on.

Inquiring Minds Question:

I can not ever recall anyone in my family embarrassing me.

If so what have they done?

Today's Question(s):


When was the last time you took a vacation? Last June, and then a week in November


Have you ever left the country
? Yes, many times



What was your best vacation? Too many to list - but the several road trips in the US have all been amazing and train tripping around Europe a couple of times was a lot of fun too.



Extra Credit Question:

What is your preferred method of travel ?
Plane? Unfortunately, to leave Australia, a plane is pretty much mandatory!
Train? Love, love, love long train trips - the best one ever was LA to New Orleans - so much fun, plus we had a cabin so relatively comfortable.
Cruise? These can be good, but I prefer river cruises to ocean cruising
Car? This for road trips
Motorcycle? No thanks!
Foot? No way!


Bonus Question:

On an Airplane do you prefer...
Aisle or window seat? On long flights I find it easier to sleep/doze in the window seat
Front or middle or back of the plane? Ideally close to the front (quicker to disembark) - prefer not to sit over the wing because I like to look out of the window during daylight flights (clouds are just as interesting as views of the land far below)
Do you mind sitting in the emergency exit seat? I would prefer this but these days they are sometimes more expensive

Have you ever been scared or afraid during a flight?
A few times (not so much scared as a little nervous) - major turbulence on many very long flights, and one aborted take off out of Melbourne.


Inquiring Minds Question:

Has anyone in your family ever embarrassed you? My father - constantly.

If so what have they done? Too many things to list - he's awful in restaurants, always bails up the maitre 'd to criticise something and woe betide any wait person who doesn't respond to his arm waving straight away. Plus every time I speak to him he asks me if my best friend is "still gay". One of these days I'm going to ask dad if he's still straight.


Just for Fun:

What is a family tradition you’ll pass on to your kids? None from my own family - but my daughter and I developed our own traditions along the way (including always eating meals at the table, and continuing with Christmas stockings long after the fat guy lost credibility).

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
