Today's Question(s):
Where is your favorite seat in the house?

In my jacuzzi tub, with candles lit, jazz playing on the i-pod, and Pierce (of course) feeding me chocolates.


What is your favorite sandwich?

Hmmm... if only Pierce had a twin. Put me in the middle and that would be the best sandwich of all time!


Who is your favorite well-known person?


If I don't say Pierce, he'll get mad....


What is your favorite thing to do when you've got a couple of hours of free time?

Well... since I've got Pierce on the brain this morning.... maybe I should just let you guess....

What is your favorite "old saying?" I guess the oldest saying of all time would have to be "Fleas: Adam Had 'em."

Good afternoon everybody from a cloudy England. Still, it's not raining for a change!

Now then. My favourite seat in the house is the right seat on the couch. My fav sandwich is cheese and strong onion. Fav well known person would be Bette Midler. I met her after a show at the London Palladium in the late 70s, nice woman. A free couple of hours would be spent on C-D. The cheapest I can remember postage stamps was 3 pence. This is the days of 240 pennies to the pound.

I have never wore an outfit with sequins.... Have a nice day all.

Egg, sharp yellow American cheese with sauteed portabella mushrooms, onion, and garlic. My own creation and idea.

For lunch it would be garlic hummus, spinach, and tomato.

Good bread or a bagle is a must.

Bill Maher. He's funny and we share many of the same views. I've seen him perform stand-up 8 times.

Today's Question(s):
Where is your favorite seat in the house? I’m sitting in it right now—the super comfortable couch!

What is your favorite sandwich? I don’t eat sandwiches.

Who is your favorite well-known person? Alive or dead? I really can’t narrow it down to one…
Anna Maria Jopek (her music
works magic on me)
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (self-explanatory)
Barack Obama (I don’t think he’s perfect as a president but I do think his heart is in the right place and he cares more about the people than a lot of other presidents)
Stevie Wonder (his music works
magic on me too)
Helen Keller (more for her groundbreaking social views than her work with blind people)


What is your favorite thing to do when you've got a couple of hours of free time? Go for a walk and get a drink at a cafe!

What is your favorite "old saying?" One that only came to mind yesterday but that I realized is a great saying is: “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

What does your favorite outfit look like? Black pants with a polo shirt or collared shirt.

Just for Fun:
Have you ever worn anything with sequins? I don’t even know what those are, so I’m guessing no.

Bonus Question:
What is the lowest price you can remember for a postage stamp? I think something like 32 cents? I can’t even remember the last time I sent snail mail that wasn’t a package.
