saturday 9


1) This song is about a girl who is eager and anxious for her new lover to call. Do you owe anyone a call? An email? A text? I think I'm all caught up

2) The lyrics are peppered with the informal English exclamation, "cheerio!" What pops into your head when you close your eyes and think of England? a pint of lager

3) This week's artist, Karmin, is a husband/wife duo who met at college, and that meeting changed the course of their lives and careers. Think of someone who has had a huge impact on your life. Did you know, as soon as you met, that this was going to be a life-changing relationship? when I was interviewing for my current teaching job, I instantly clicked with both department chairs that interviewed me--one went on to become my work husband and our friendship means a lot to both of us

4) Though she sings about consuming tequila, the female side of Karmin, Amy, is a big proponent of healthy eating. She recommends organic foods that are free of pesticides, hormones, food coloring and added sugar. Think about your most recent meal. Was it a good example of "healthy eating?" I just ate three Reeses' miniatures--so... no

5) Husband Nick has his own Twitter account (@NickKarmin), but he doesn't use it often. His last tweet was back in August. What's the last thing you posted to social media? (No, your blog doesn't count.)
I sent a video to my sister via Snapchat this morning

6) Karmin performed "Brokenhearted" live on Dancing with the Stars. DWTS is very big business for ABC-TV. So many people vote for their favorite couples each week that their phone and text systems often overload. Have you ever voted for a contestant on American Idol, DWTS, The Voice, etc.? oh--absolutely! I was a huge fan of American Idol for many years and voted regularly. I voted for Kelly Clarkson!

7) In 2012, the year"Brokenhearted" was popular, the average cost for a gallon of gas was $3.91. In 2016, it had dropped to $2.40. When it's time to fill up your tank, do you shop around for the lowest price/gal.? Are you brand loyal and always return to the same station, regardless of price? Or do you just buy gas from the nearest station when you're running low? I am pretty brand loyal and return to the same gas station because they pump the gas and wash the windshield, check oil and tire pressure--full service!

8) In 2012, the Space Shuttle Endeavor was retired and placed on permanent display at the California Science Center, a Los Angeles museum dedicated to encouraging excitement and enthusiasm about air and space travel. Let's say you had a long weekend to spend in Los Angeles. Would you go out of your way to see The Endeavor? What else would you like to do during your time in the City of Angels? I think a studio tour would be fun--it would be so much fun to see the Endeavor, too

9) While we're thinking about aviation ... Statistics show that it's still a predominantly male field, and less than 10% of commercial pilots are women. Would you be nervous flying with a woman pilot? I have flown with a woman pilot and it didn't phase me in the least

A full-service gas station! That sounds so cool. (So Gomer and Goober and Wally's Filling Station.)

I thought all those kinds of stations were in NJ now! :-)

I'm glad I'm not the only one eating not-so-great today.

I am Harriet said...

My daughter keeps trying to get me to snapchat. I got an account but, I hardly ever go on there. I like Periscope when I remember to get on there.

Getty Museum is just above L.A. and is also worthy of a visit. Universal Studios is around there, too.
And a full service gas station is a keeper!
The last visit, the twins sent a video of driving through a snowstorm on the Grapevine. Videos are fun stuff, eh?
PS. I am starting on the Peace Cowl. Thank you for the suggestion. :-) <3 <3

I was an American Idol fan from the start, too!

I should look into Snap Chat and the like since the kids on my bus keep telling me that only OLD people use Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

I have never tried snapchat may I ask if the video was on the internet that you shared or one that you created?? With grand-babies this may be very useful

Wow! "they pump the gas and wash the windshield, check oil and tire pressure--full service" that is rare these days. Even in New Jersey where they have to pump your gas they don't check the tire pressure or oil.

I can't believe you have a full service gas station! I haven't seen one of those in years and years.
