Hawaii Five-O

1) This is the theme from the TV show that originally ran from 1968 to 1980 and is on now again with a new cast. Were you/are you a fan? I was, although I didn't really understand much of what was going on

2) On both shows, Five-O is an elite police task force led by Det. Lt. Steve McGarrett. Who is your favorite TV cop? Detective Ed Green from Law & Order

3) On both shows, the part of Danny "Danno" Williams was played by a second generation performer. (James MacArthur was the son of Broadway legend Helen Hayes; Scott Caan is the son of movie actor James Caan.) If you followed one of your parents into their chosen profession, what would you be doing? I would be a teacher. ;-)

4) Both shows are filmed in Hawaii, the boyhood home of President Obama. Have any of our 44 Presidents hailed from your state? not president but Vice President

5) Kona coffee is made from beans cultivated on the Big Island of Hawaii. Are you a big coffee drinker? I love coffee, especially Dunkin' Donuts iced

6) This week's song was written by the late Morton Stevens. In addition to composing for TV shows, he was the musical director for a group of entertainers known in the 60s as "The Rat Pack." Can you name any "Rat Pack" members? Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, and I can't remember the last name of Joey...

7) This week's featured band, The Ventures, began when Don Wilson purchased a used car from Bob Bogle. During negotiations, they discovered a shared passion for playing guitar. Did you buy your current ride new or used? Did the negotiations go smoothly? I bought it online and it went smoothly

8) The year this song was popular, 1969, is when Donald and Doris Fisher opened a San Francisco clothing store called The Gap. Today there are more than 3,200 Gap locations. Do you shop at The Gap or gap.com? I do not

9) Random question: What's on your Saturday to-do list? I've accomplished everything on my list! Manicure, lunch, shopping...

I am impressed that you bought a vehicle online. I thought buying a freezer online was scary; I couldn't imagine purchasing a car.

Aside from the order, we answered the Rat Pack question EXACTLY the same way....weird. ;-)

My younger sister is an English teacher and swears that teenagers are a lot easier to work with than primary pupils! I still need grammar help from time to time!

I haven't had a manicure in years - my present life style has a lot to do with that, mind you!

Have a pleasant Sunday...♥

My Dad was a teacher! I'm with you on the iced coffee and love manicures!
Hope you'll stop by my blog(s). - Susan

I've had exactly 2 professional manicures in my life. My nails are so flimsy and weak, they're not worth paying for fancy ones! LOL.

I like iced coffee, too!

I hate the new Hawaii Five-O, I think the new show is a bunch of wise guys.
