1. Where do you get your news these days? online

2. Do you like crab meat? What makes you crabby? Yes, I like crab meat.  Being ill makes me crabby.

3. Does freedom mean more choices? Have you ever felt there were too many choices? Elaborate. Freedom means more choices, yes.  And there are too many choices for simple things--like which flavor of ice cream to get...

4. Barbara Millicent Roberts was introduced to the world on March 9, 1959...that's Barbie to most of us. Did you have Barbies as a kid, or did you let your own children play with Barbies? What well known Barbara (living or not) would you most like to meet? I had Barbies, yes; I would like to meet up with a high school friend of mine--we reconnected but lost the connection and I would like to cultivate that friendship again

5. What are three things you value most in another person? integrity, being able to laugh, and having things in common

6. How would you define “old.”  At what age is a person old? I think 75+ is old

7. A place you’ve been that’s “old.”  Tell us something about your visit there. I walked down a thousand-year-old street in Dublin, Ireland, and I felt like I was home

8. Something you miss about the “good old days.”  When were they? there are times I wish I could redo some of my college years to get more out of them--I would pay more attention in my classes and relish being a student

9. In what way are you a 'chip off the old block'? Or if you'd rather, in what way is your child a 'chip off the old block'? my parents are educators and I am an educator

10. Old fashioned, Old Testament, old timer, same old same old, old glory, good old boy, old wives tale...choose an 'old' phrase that relates to something in your life or the wider world currently and explain. I am old fashioned in my thinking about using marijuana--it makes me feel old that it is so casually used now

11. July 5th is National Hawaii Day...have you ever been to Hawaii? Any desire to visit or make a return trip? Pineapple, mango, or guava...what's your pleasure? I would go to Hawaii, it would be so different than Maine!  And pineapple is my favorite fruit (along with pomegranate, but that's not an option)

12. Last time you were 'thrown in at the deep end'? Explain. last week and I would rather not explain

13. Sun, sea, sand, salt...your favorite when it comes to summer? I like warm sunny days that offer lots of comfy shade to sit in

14. Bury your head in the sand, the sands of time, draw a line in the sand, pound sand, shifting sands...pick one and tell us how the phrase currently relates to your life in some way. the sands of time--because I'm awaiting a business trip and it feels like it's never going to get here but that it's coming all too soon

15. On a scale of 1-10 (1 = make your own rules and 10=like a warden), how strict were your parents? If you're a parent where on the scale do you land?  I grew up with a 2 and if I was a parent I would be about an 8

I'm visiting from Sunday Stealing and as always, enjoyed reading your answers. It is always nice to "get to know" other bloggers!

#7. I've probably been down that street. Go to York and Chester - some are even older. And London too.
