If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Wednesday Hodgepodge



Click the button to play along.

1. The Summer Olympics begin next week and London is playing host. If you had the chance to go in person which (non-Olympic) London site would you most like to visit?
I really don't know much about London, but I'd like to see Big Ben.

2. What is something in your life right now that feels like an Olympic event?
Trying to make myself get in and stay in the routine of walking.

3. What's your favorite supper to prepare and serve when it's too hot to cook?
Hamburgers or hotdogs on the grill with some chips.  You didn't say it had to be healthy right? lol

4. July 18th is National Get Out of the Doghouse Day...when was the last time you were 'in the doghouse'?
Hubby never makes me feel like I'm in the doghouse...I have a tendency to do that to myself.  I really can't remember the last time.

5. What television advertisement do you find particularly irritating or inappropriate? You may not answer with 'all of them'. I know some of you were thinking about it.
Any and all pharmaceutical advertisements.  I believe our Doctors are the ones who should recommend what we need, not the TV.  I really don't wish to name a particular product, however, I bet we all know the ones I'm talking about.

6. Share one piece of interesting news from the year you were born.
Elvis Presley received his draft notice for the United States Army.

7. What's the best part of your average day?
Coming home from work and being able to spend the evening at home.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Here are some prices from the year I was born.

New House Average Price $12,220

Wages Average $4.550

Gallon of Gas 24 Cents

Chrome Dinette Set 7 piece $99.50

Mechanical Adding Machine $3.98

Paperback Book 25 cents

Food
Dozen Eggs 28 Cents

Bananas 14 cents Lb

Campbells Tomato Soup 10 cents

Hamburger Meat 30 Cents Lb

Sirloin Steak 59 Cents Lb

Oh and if you're just dying to know the year, so you can figure out just how old I am, it's 1957.   I'm really not ashamed of my age.  I'm just thankful for each day that I wake up on this side of the dirt.  :)

Have a great day everyone!

  1. I'm with you on the drug ads. We don't make those decisions and the ads are really bad to boot!

  3. Oh, to have those prices again! But, we probably wouldn't make the wages we make, either!

  4. Pharmacuetical commercials definitely rank up there with some of the most annoying ones. Some of them really crack me up, though.

  5. Do those drug companies really expect us to go to our doctors and ask them to prescribe that medicine???

    It's been too hot here to ask DH to go out and grill outside. Plus there's a ban on outdoor burning right now ... with everything so dry due to the drought, there's a real risk of fires getting out of control. Otherwise, grilling outdoors would definitely by my first choice for cooking method in the summer.

  7. I love old stastics like that... My hunt for a car? WAY higher then the price of a house - how sad is that?!?!?!

  8. Yes the drug ads drive me crazy too. Houses were $9,000 when I was born. It's crazy! We can't change our age so we need to embrace it.

  9. Love hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. I had the same answer about commercials. Really, it is ridiculous!

  10. Yes hamburgers and hot dogs count as food for the summer! Especially if you are not cooking! Love the prices back then. Love coming home after work and just being home! Great Answers.
