1) This 1980 video depicts Olivia Newton-John as a performer in small club. For the past few years, she's been performing regularly at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. Have you ever been to Las Vegas? I have not been and I'm not sure if it's on my bucket list or not

2) Many tourists who want to get away from the glitz of Vegas travel less than 20 miles to visit Red Rock Canyon. This national park is known for its hiking trails, which provide a view of the desert flora and red rock peaks. Tell us about a time you were impressed by natural beauty. the sky was blue and the sun was shining and it felt like winter turned a corner--but then the temperatures plunged again

3) One of the best-reviewed restaurants in Las Vegas is Andiamo Italian Steak House. When you order a steak, how do you request it be cooked: rare, medium rare, medium, medium well or well done? rare or medium rare

4) Olivia Newton-John's father was an officer in MI5, the UK's secret service. Sam's most recent encounter with the law didn't have much drama or intrigue: she asked a cop for directions to the highway. Tell us about the last time you spoke to an officer of the law. I Facebook messaged the Bangor Maine Police Department because they have one of the funniest Facebook presences out there

5) ONJ was awarded the OBE -- Order of the British Empire -- by Queen Elizabeth in honor of her contributions to the arts. Here's your opportunity to boast. What is something you've done lately that you received praise for? my manicurist praised my willingness to try funky designs

6) A breast cancer survivor, Olivia helped found a cancer center in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. When you think of Australia, what comes to mind? Men At Work's Land Down Under

7) "Magic" was one of the top-selling records of 1980. Also that year, Post-It notes debuted. Do you enjoy shopping for office supplies, or do you consider it a chore? office supplies are my favorite shopping experience!

8) In 1980, the NASA space probe returned the first photos of Saturn back to earth. Do you believe intelligent life forms from other planets are trying to learn more about us? meh

9) Random question: Are you more confident in your looks or your intelligence? uhm that's an interesting question and today I'll go with looks because I'm coming home from the laundromat and I overheard a tween asking her mom, "why is that lady dressed up to do laundry?" (for the record, I'm wearing a fleece turtleneck and jeans)

I love it that we all seem to love office supply stores.

I also like shopping in office supply stores. It's like a toy store! So many pens and oodles of paper. So exciting.
A quilter friend lives in Bangor. She was saying that it was 55 degrees but I'll bet it's back to winter again.
Happy weekend, A.

Give me an office supply store any day. We had nice warm temps and then they plummeted but are supposed to warm back up. I am hoping the fruit trees aren't damaged.

I normally don't get ear worms, but you've succeeded where others have failed. I've been singing it since I read your answer.

Now I want a vegamite sandwich, and I don't even know what it is!

Every now and then I'll hear Men at Work on the radio.
That is a good fb page to follow :)
