The Times of Your Life

1) This song is all about memories. How far back can you remember? What's your earliest memory? I can remember singing with my sisters as a toddler--we sang Christmas songs

2) The first line is "Good morning, yesterday." What do you remember about yesterday morning? I drove past one of the worst car accidents I have ever seen--there were panels of the vehicle lying in the road.

3) This song was originally a 60-second jingle, featured in a commercial for Kodak film. Do you ever use film? Or are all your pictures digital? digital

4) Who took the most recent photo of you? I took a selfie

5) This week's featured artist, Paul Anka, was born in Canada and enjoyed appearing in a made-for-TV Perry Mason movie with fellow Canadian, Raymond Burr. Do you enjoy courtroom dramas? yes, I do enjoy them

6) At 15, Anka won a supermarket contest by collecting the most Campbell soup can wrappers. The prize was a trip to New York. Do you enter contests and sweepstakes? Play the lottery? the only contests or sweepstakes I enter are school-related and I don't often play the lottery

7) This year Paul Anka performed throughout Florida (Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Clearwater and Fort Myers). The Sunshine State is a popular vacation destination. Do you have a favorite spot in Florida? I've never been to Florida

8) In 1976, the year this song was on the charts, an earthquake hit China. Have you ever experienced an earthquake? yes, we've had some in Northern Maine

9) Random question: Do you know CPR? I'm not trained

I had no idea that there were earthquakes in Maine! I guess they really are a risk to us all.

That does sound like a chilling accident. Glad to hear you were not part of it

I hate those kinds of accidents; they stay in the back of my mind for awhile.

Sounds like a bad accident. My husband (a firefighter) never talks about those.

Maine is one big scrape of terminal romaine, and full of fault lines. It's Sort of fun I'd think, since they aren't like sitting on a powder keg, like California. I liked that one person said it sounded like a freight train coming through the house, because that's exactly how it sounds sometimes.
