All I Ever Need Is You

1) The lyrics tell us that some men search for silver, some for gold. Are you wearing either silver or gold right now? I am not, I forgot to put on a necklace which would be silver

2) This song was a top 20 hit in the United States but sold much better in Canada. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of our neighbor to the North? family--since I live about fifteen minutes away from the border, I have family and friends "on the other side"

3) It's performed by one of pop's most successful duos, Sonny and Cher. Can you name another duo that made hit records? Hall & Oates, Carpenters, Captain & Tennille

4) In addition to their recording career, Sonny and Cher were TV stars. In a recurring sketch on their variety show, Cher played a "v-a-m-p: VAMP!" These characters were always sexy and seductive. Do you consider yourself a good flirt? I consider myself awkward at best

5) Sonny dropped out of high school in Inglewood, CA. Cher dropped out of high school in Fresno. What's the last year of education you completed? I have some post-Bachelor's credit but not enough for a degree

6) Sonny first became Mayor of Palm Springs, and then represented the district in Congress. The city erected a statue in Sonny's memory. Tell us about a statue or monument in your town.  "Peace Park" was established to honor veterans
 
7) Cher is often described as outspoken. Ask her for her opinion on anything from politics to plastic surgery, and you will get a frank answer. Does "outspoken"  apply to you, as well? I don't know if I'm outspoken as much as I am frank or blunt

8) In 1971, when this song was popular, Sears sold a portable manual typewriter. Described at the time as, "lightweight for travelers," it weighed 10 lbs. Today the average laptop weighs half that. Do you own a typewriter? no, but I have fond memories of cranking out papers
 
9) Random question -- Which has gotten you out of more scrapes: your smarts, or your charm? my charm

  1. I hated my typewriter!
    I used to get so many "sp" using typewriter, autocorrect is my friend. Word processing was one of the greatest inventions ever! Cut & paste is a close second.

  2. I didn't realize you had family north of the border.

    And until this moment, I wondered how a person who drives as much as you do managed to elude traffic tickets.

  3. I always wondered if you had family on the other side of the border....

  4. I remember paying someone to type my papers when I was in school, I was a very poor typist, word processing made my life so much easier.

  6. My sons were angry with me for insisting they take typing in high school, but as aduls, they were all thankful that they knew how to type!

  7. I would love living close to the border and be able to go back and forth. Very nice.
    I have 9 hours of master's courses, but not a degree. Maybe someday. Loved your answers. Have a nice weekend.

  8. Because of being involved with soccer people so long, I found out that a lot of them were actually Canadian but had lived here for years and years. It had worked both ways actually. 9-11 changed that ease. Everyone had to declare.
    By the way, I'd bet that you are so close to a Masters that you could have it very quickly. Best Wishes, and come on down. We will de-tangle some yarn nests together. ;o)
