____Yep, already 2020. What do you think about that?

Happy New Year, roosty???

~ Have you any interest at all in dinosaurs and prehistoric times?

Not that, but I just found my bookmarked link to the history of food, and its soooo interesting!!!
(Food Timeline: food history research service)


~ If you make a wish right now for any electronic gadget you just might get it - magically and free of charge - what will you wish for?

Hmmm... I don't know. I have what I need and if there is something else I could need - I don't know about it...

~ Will you please list a few of your random interests?

Reading, travel, languages, photography, eating ethnic food, and something new ...

~ How many frying pans/skillets do you have? Do tell something about them!

Hmmm. 3 stainless steel with copper bottom, various sizes, and one ceramic coated pan. Probably more scratched pans in the shed...

~ Roasted almonds.

~ Bag of money.

~ Do you talk to animals?

Of course!

~ Would you go to the movie theater if you were invited by a friend?

Sure! Not right now, though...

~ Get 3 things at the concession before the movie begins:

Sorry. I never buy anything there.

~ Does dirt ever get tracked into your house?

Most likely, but I try to eliminate it by changing my shoes and street clothes shortly after I arrive home.

~ Some things that you wish you had never gotten rid of in the past:

When I moved from my homeland to the US, I left many valuable things behind. I wish I had them here.

~ I would like to travel now

Wear a face mask and keep a distance from other people. I think that's all that matters right now.

____Yep, already 2020. What do you think about that?
It's hard to believe sometimes. I remember reading 1984 in high school and thinking that was impossibly far away in the future, and I felt the same when I saw the movie 2001.

~ Have you any interest at all in dinosaurs and prehistoric times?
Not very much.

~ If you make a wish right now for any electronic gadget you just might get it - magically and free of charge - what will you wish for?
A new smart phone. My old iPhone 5s is practically an antique.

~ Will you please list a few of your random interests?
Classic Hollywood - I collect books on the films and the stars of the golden era.
Opera - I enjoy listening to the Metropolitan Opera channel on Sirius XM
Jazz - I was introduced to it as a teenager and still enjoy it, but mostly from the 40s-50s-60s era.
Skiing - I haven't skied for years but would head for the mountains in a hot second if I had someone to ski with.
Reading - we have about 1,500 books in our library. I love to read, especially non-fiction, biography and history.
Baking - I especially enjoy baking cookies.

~ How many frying pans/skillets do you have? Do tell something about them!
I've got a cast iron skillet, a small nonstick skillet and an even smaller stainless steel frying pan. I also have two Calphalon griddles, one flat and one ridged.

~ Roasted Leg of Lamb.
~ Bag of Chips.

~ Do you talk to animals?
Yes, I do. Doesn't everybody?

~ Would you go to the movie theater if you were invited by a friend?
Not right now.

~ Get 3 things at the concession before the movie begins:
Buttered popcorn, Raisinettes, Goobers. (I once knew someone who would mix the Raisinettes and Goobers into the popcorn, but that sounds a bit over the top, not to mention calorific.)

~ Does dirt ever get tracked into your house?
Occasionally, but not very often.

~ Some things that you wish you had never gotten rid of in the past:
A rocking chair that my first husband bought me as a gift. I left it behind because I didn't want any reminders of him, but now I wish I had kept it.

~ I would like to find toilet paper at the grocery store without having to get up at some ungodly hour and stand in line.

~ Please recommend something...anything...to us all:
To prevent garlic breath, eat a sprig or two of parsley. It really works! Also, parsley is nutritious. It is rich in vitamins A, K and C.

~ Foods that you are crazy about!:
Chocolate
Freshly-baked biscuits
Peanut butter
Spaghetti
Macaroni and cheese
Peas
Spinach
Sweet potatoes
Tuna casserole
Chinese chicken salad
Cinnamon toast
Toasted bagels with cream cheese
Grilled cheese sandwiches with cream of tomato soup


*** Stables were the first garages. Please bring them back! ***
Neigh!





Thanks, Roosty!

Yep, already 2020. What do you think about that? - This year has been a disaster.

~ Have you any interest at all in dinosaurs and prehistoric times? - Some.

~ If you make a wish right now for any electronic gadget you just might get it - magically and free of charge - what will you wish for? - I don't need right now...

~ Will you please list a few of your random interests? - Music, walking for exercise, some sports especially horse racing, politics, biographies and other things of interest. I read a lot. Mind candy...

~ How many frying pans/skillets do you have? Do tell something about them! - 3, nothing to tell...

~ Roasted Brussels sprouts

~ Bag of food

~ Do you talk to animals? - No. I'm pet free and don't approach strangers. It's big city here, so....

~ Would you go to the movie theater if you were invited by a friend? - Not right now...
I don't do violence so if that is involved I would pass.

~ Get 3 things at the concession before the movie begins: - Just bottled water. Maybe Raisinets. And if they sell ice cream...

The seldom times I have gone in the past I do not buy anything. Last movie I went out and saw was 5 years ago.

~ Does dirt ever get tracked into your house? - A little can't be helped. I plan on sweeping later today.

~ Some things that you wish you had never gotten rid of in the past: - Maybe some vinyl records but I do not have storage space nor anything to play them on. I used to have a nice collection.

~ I would like to go on a trip somewhere.

~ Please recommend something...anything...to us all: - Going out for exercise. I go out everyday and walk for about an hour. It stuns me living in this big city that I do not see many doing this. It's very safe where I live and these blocks are long. I love looking at the historic buildings. There is also a nice park with a walking trail very close to me. Just getting outside doing these brisk walks is very uplifting and makes me feel better about life, especially now.

~ Foods that you are crazy about!: - The big three - Ice cream, chocolate muffins, and pizza!

But for the most part I do eat very healthy.

Thanks, Roosty!
