1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true where you live?
Yes, it most assuredly does. They are calling for up to 8 inches of snow here today. However, it seems as the day goes on, it is getting less and less. Hopefully, it will miss us completely.
2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most?
Do you mean when I make them or when someone else does. I hate when I read my stuff a day or so later and find mistakes. Others' mistakes don't bother me quite as much.
3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you?
I'd like to think I'm an optimist. You make have to ask my husband what he thinks.
4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month?
The estate sale for my brother's house is this weekend. So that is one thing we are all working on. Another is we are putting my parents on a waiting list for a retirement/nursing care facility. We think they may be moving then sometime yet this month. My younger sister is selling her home and buying a condo this month if all goes as planned too. Lots of changes for my family.
5. An ongoing debate around here...do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording?
I prefer dusting first, then vacuuming. However, we don't vacuum much anymore, because we mostly have wood and/or tile floors. The bedrooms are the only place with carpet and hopefully, that will change this year. I hate dusting, so I'd have to say I dislike vacuuming less. However, that being said, with my lower bulging disk issued, I have problems vacuuming and have to do it in short spurts, or I pay for it later.
6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?
I have photographed Cinderella's Castle many many times (as you probably know if you've been around here very often. lol) I have also photographed the Lincoln Memorial (which by the way was one of my most favorite places I got to visit on my one trip to Washington DC). As to what I'd most like to visit and photograph...probably Niagara Falls. I'd be glad to get an opportunity to visit the Castle and the Lincoln Monument again anytime!!
7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie?
I have seen the film on TV many times. I know own it on DVD, as it was one of the many DVD's my brother had and no one else wanted it. I'd rate it at least an 8 or 9. One of my favorite scenes is the puppet show singing "The Lonely Goatherd" song. I like almost all of the songs, but for some reason I've always really liked this scene.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
We started our Spring Women's Bible Study last night and we are doing "Gideon" by Priscilla Shirer. I do believe it's going to be a really, really good one.
