1. The month of July was named for Roman Emperor Julius Caesar. He's quoted as saying, 'Experience is the teacher of all things." So what has experience taught you lately?
I prefer what my husband says: Experience is not the best teacher, example is. Learning by example is usually must less painful than experience.
2. Where did you last 'roam'?
2 weeks ago we drove along the Ohio River from Cincinnati through to Madison, Indiana on Friday and then from Cincinati to Maysville, KY and back. Saw some beautiful and interesting sites along the river. Hoping to go back again soon and see some more.
3. Speaking of 'Rome'...pizza, pasta, gelato...you can only pick one, which would you choose?
Pizza with extra cheese, mushrooms, and tomatoes
4. 'Rome wasn't built in a day', 'All roads lead to Rome', 'When in Rome...' which 'Roman' idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain.
How about "All roads lead to Rome." Because of that weekend of heading both east and west they still all led us back to home in a days time.
5. What's a movie you've seen or a book you've read, that makes you want to book a trip to Italy?
Can't say I really have much of a desire to go to Italy. But actually "Rome Adventure with Troy Donahue and Suzanne Pleshette used to be a favorite movie of mine. I haven't seen it in years though.
6. Walt's original Disneyland opened almost sixty years ago, on July 17, 1955 Have you ever been to the California park? How about any of the other Disney parks around the world? What's your favorite amusement park ride or attraction?
No, I have never been to Disneyland. I have, however, been to Disney World many times. Of course, if you've ever been here before, you probably already know this. My favorite ride or attraction, would be The Haunted Mansion and Space Ship Earth in EPCOT. You know, this is really hard for me to answer because I love so many of them. It would be so much easier to say which one I don't like, because there are very few.
7. It's that time of year...when were you last bitten or stung?
Out in my own yard on one of my fingers by a mosquito.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I finally opened my Etsy Shop. I only have 5 items listed, but at least it's open. If you're interested, it's called "Simple Treasures by Cat", Here's a link.
