Baby's in Black

1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday, November 25, was "Black Friday," when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains? I did not do any Black Friday shopping, I am saving myself for Small Business Saturday and shopping local

2) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include pigging out or watching a game? not so much to either

3) At Thanksgiving dinners, Crazy Sam's homemade gravy is always a hit. (Probably because she's so generous with the cognac, which gives the gravy a nutty taste.) What was particularly delicious at your Thanksgiving table? I'm going to go with our gravy--we had a particularly well-seasoned bird and the pan drippings made a fantastic gravy

4) Among the biggest the Black Friday advertisers are Target, Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy. If you could have a $100 gift card to any one of those stores, which would you choose? Target! I love going there and rarely come out empty handed

5) This week's song, "Baby's in Black," is about a girl who wears black because she's in mourning. Do you find that the color you're wearing reflects your mood? I don't think so

6) The woman who inspired this song, Astrid Kirchherr, has been friends with Paul McCartney since he and his bandmates (John Lennon, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best) met her in Hamburg back in 1960. Tell us what you believe are the components of a strong, lasting friendship. being present for your friends

7) In the early days of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and John Lennon began writing a play but abandoned it. Do you have a novel, painting, play, song or poem that you're going to finish "someday?"
I do not

8) When he was 16, George Harrison dreamed of moving to Canada, Australia or Malta. In just a few years, he would visit all those places with Beatles and eventually decided there was no place like home and stayed in England. Have you ever thought about moving to another country? If so, where? I would move to Ireland in a heartbeat

9) Random question: Finish this sentence -- If you want me to give you "yes" for an answer, the best time to approach me is _____________________. on a school day, between 7-9 am

I would have loved to hit some of the local places (and the big craft fair in the town I work in) today, but we are heading out soon for a bus trip to WV to see the Christmas lights in Olglebay.

I love gray! My plate swims in it (But I do try to keep it away from the cranberry sauce. Gray and cranberry sauce just don't go together.).

Happy belated Thanksgiving.

For some reason many of our small businesses are doing small business Saturday on December 3. Maybe that is because that is the same day as the local parade, I don't know. I though thought it odd, though.

I think you could write a great series of articles on being a teacher. You've seen a lot and you're a keen observer.

I love Ireland too. I don't know whether i'd prefer to live in someplace like Dubin, or in a little village like Mayo Abby, where we lived for 2 weeks many years ago. The country is so small, distance from the next city is not really an issue.

You've got me thinking. I forgot to try my gravy the other night. At least the pie was good :)

Target is a blessing in disguise. I can always find something there that I need or want, but then again, it costs me. :) A gift card sounds great!
The gravy sounds great! It's the best homemade.
