I rode with my family for a short trip in Oklahoma on a train that was non-commercial, but rather maintained by a club of railroad enthusiasts. My son Tim was perhaps 4 or 5 at the time, and loved trains.

John_Little - 22-4-2009 at 08:22

We could toss for it. But you didn't spoil it. It just happens some times.

We are both slightly too keen. That's the trouble.

Go on, heads or tails?

You could answer my question and I could answer yours and then ask new questions......I will let you go first, "what time will you retire tonight"? you answer that then ask me what I am good at, I will answer that and then I will ask a new question and then we should be back on course.
How does that sound John?
:)


John_Little - 22-4-2009 at 08:36

Damn! I was hoping to avoid that one. Its slightly embarassing.

I have got into the habit of going to bed at 10pm in the week and listening to "The World Tonight" and "Book at Bedtime" on the radio.

So, unless something else happens - 10pm.

What are you good at? Snowy?

Science fiction. I especially like those with continuing characters, like Star Trek and comic book heroes (which, in a way, is a sub-genre of science fiction).

Who has been your favorite teacher? (Include a description, please.):)


Nimuae - 22-4-2009 at 19:04

Miss Rix,(Relative of Sir Brian Rix) English Teacher, last year a primary school. She was tall, plump, and had grey hair pinned into a bun. She always wore long navy skirts, with a selection of stripey blouses and a navy cardigan.

She was strict - but fair. She used to read us stories, such as Ivanhoe or Heidi - and could do a zillion different voices. It is through her that I began to write short stories and developed my skills in poetry.


What is your favourite book and why ?


John_Little - 22-4-2009 at 19:52

Snowy - 23-4-2009 at 08:33

Yes !...my holiday in London. I have been reading about London on the internet, looking for places to visit etc, and I have learnt that there is a lot of crime there, robberies and murders. I am thinking have I made the right choice?


Do you like having a clean house ?
:)


Dreamweaver - 23-4-2009 at 08:58

I love having a clean house, unfortunately with family visiting every few days, things slide. I just get them sorted and someone else arrives for a visit lol. But I gladly swap cleanliness to listen to family banter around the kitchen table at night.

It seems as though Waffler has caused the thread to stand still because he has not asked a question, Should I ask one for him to get it going again?

What is your favourite song of all time ?

Snowy thanks for the question, its a difficult one as My tastes are very varied.

I like powerful songs like Jenifer Rush singing the Power of love or the Shakespere Sister with thier rendition of "Stay"

I think my all time favorite must be The song of the slaves from Nabuco. from the Opera by Verdi. it warm your very bones.

Could you set traps and eat what you catch.

Do you believe that men ever went to the moon ?

Deerhound.

If you got a new dog, what name would you give it??
waveysmiley


the bear - 27-4-2009 at 17:09

Not being evasive but the dog would tell me that, my dog that died some months ago was called Jack. he was a Jack, and soon became my pal Jack.
We have a Yorky called Poppy, her very nature befits her name.
Dogs name are a relationship between man and friend.


What unusual thing could you think of to do to raise money for charity.

A computer programmer . So I can take over the world like bill gates :)
How does GPS work ?


Quaver - 27-4-2009 at 22:17

It sends some signal to some US military satellites orbiting earth, which tells the GPS where they are in relation to the mapconfused2

Do you use a SatNav? If so, which one?

Too far for my little brain to calculate.....

Do you watch reality TV, if so, which ones???


the bear - 28-4-2009 at 00:43

I have never watch reality TV, ( clicked on it in the middle of the night one night only to see a bloke stood by a bed in his undies having a good old scratch) Why would anyone want to watch that.


Would you take part in medical testing of drugs.

Do you do the cheap, newspaper holidays?


Mary2 - 28-4-2009 at 12:19

No as we are no longer a household with young children. We did do Butlin's years ago though.

Are you deliberately watching news updates at the moment or are you pretty laid back?


Badgergirl - 28-4-2009 at 12:50

I don't usually watch the news unless I'm waiting for something else to come on, but I follow stories if they catch my eye.

Do you eat Cadbury's Creme Eggs, if so.."How do you eat yours?"

I dont drink coffee....I always have my tea in my Blue and white Tesco mug £0.39p....Fairly strong with skimmed milk and 3 sugars. I also use Tesco Scottish blend tea bags and if anyone has never tried them I would strongly recommend them.

Do you really like Brussel Sprouts ??
:P


victor - 28-4-2009 at 15:29

I grows them so I eats them. ;):D

Did you enjoy your school years?

Something interesting - a topic starter not a dead end. hth :)



Are you explicit with your partner about what makes you happy or do you just hope they'll know?


John_Little - 28-4-2009 at 16:48

I don't leave it to chance. But I wish that she wouldn't rely on my intuition and just shout out what she wants - specially for birthdays and Christmas.

Are you all geared up for the change to digital TV?


marymary100 - 28-4-2009 at 17:10

We have Sky so yes we seem to be.

Probably both....I dont like to hear about any creature going into extinction. Man is to blame for most of it. I could talk for hours on Wildlife but this is not the thread. I will just say that I heard of yet another Golden Eagle being found dead in Scotland yesterday, its so sad.

Ooops - sorry Snowy - I dived in too soon!

Oceans are full of human rubbish because irresponsible humans dump it there !

Fossil fuels or nuclear energy ?


Daz - 29-4-2009 at 10:04

Hmmm don't know enough about either if I'm honest, but as this Gov't is going down the nuclear route, it must be bad, so I'll go fossil...! ;)

Cheap, discount booze. (Supermarket deals llike, 3 boxes of 24 of cans for £10 etc!). Good, or bad? And why...


the bear - 29-4-2009 at 17:32

I'm not a big drinker, 24 cans would last me a year. I enjoy the odd Newcastle Brown, I do love a good drop of Scotch though.

Discount booze is a two edge sword, its good for people who enjoy a drink at home watching a footie match or a barbie but it also sends out the wrong signals to the younger drinkers who dont have a respect for alcohol.

Do you read autobiography's

These are two examples of memory aids used in schools to teach certain things. What memory aids (mnemomics) do you remember from your school days?


Snowy - 29-4-2009 at 19:11

None at all, I have a terrible memory !:D
I do worry that I have the onset of early dementia, I am really bad at remembering names, so bad that when I meet someone for the first time I have to picturise something to match their name...eg, Rupert, I think of the bear, Harry, I think of the Prince.It is so embarrassing when you know someone quite well but then have to ask them what their name is !

What christian name would you really like to have been named if you had the choice??

What time is it reasonable to expect a 14 year old to be in at night and does it make a difference if its a boy or a girl.

The second question is the main one, the other one was to "set the scene" so to speak.


Quaver - 30-4-2009 at 14:47

Yes, and yes. It's way too expensive for normal person, but if you have the money, it is probably the right price commercially;)

If your cat had cystitis, how would you treat it ?


marymary100 - 30-4-2009 at 15:51

As someone who has never had a cat I'd rely on this information:
* Feed a wet food and encourage water intake
* Reduce stress
* Provide more litter trays in suitable places
* Use veterinary products to help heal the bladder lining
* Use a special diet to try to reduce crystal formation in the urine

Do you prefer hot or cold food?


Snowy - 30-4-2009 at 18:45

I do eat more hot food than cold Mary but when I have salads I still have to have something hot with it.

Other than the Bible, it would be Isaac Asimov. I loved the grand scope of his original Foundation trilogy, the logic of his mysteries and positronic robot series, the clarity of his prose, and the science incorporated into his writings. He continued to be interested in science and mathematics his whole life. Also, he did not get side-tracked into sub-plots about torrid sex, and he generally stayed with the older science-fiction conventions of avoiding foul language by substiting other words. ("Blast it" substitutes for a d-word curse, for example.)

Nimuae - 1-5-2009 at 13:31

Yes - I was one of those terrible children who are always asking "Why, How, and What if...", and the person I targeted most with my questions was my favourite Aunt (who also just happened to be my godmother, and the person who delivered me into this world). I remember asking her about ghosts - if they existed - if she had seen one etc., She said that she had never seen one - but that she would feel very sorry for any ghost that appeared to me, as it would be pinned to a chair and cross examined !

Years later - as people do - she died, aged 92. Three weeks after her death, I was sitting reading and felt a 'presence'. She was sitting in the chair opposite me and had the biggest grin on her face - as I opened my mouth to speak - she vanished. I have never seen her since - but I would like to !



Have you ever been up in a hot air balloon ?

I like Judge John Deed and laterly Kavagh. Some of John Grishams books would make brilliant court dramas.

Not really, I like the outdoor pursuits like Whitewater rafting and rock climbing.


Every body should have a passion in life, whats yours.

I greatly dislike them.

I remember a particularly bad one here on KF. While I was grieving the death of a friend, he said that if I really believed in agreement with my Christian faith, I should be happy he had died.

Karl banned him in a minute!

marymary100 - 4-5-2009 at 11:37

No, and no. Going to the toilet frequently at work would be somewhat problematic.

Worse smell you've ever smelt? (E.G. Mine would be my late Uncle's Pig farm.)


the bear - 5-5-2009 at 02:05

I think the thing to supass that smell is when they clean out the chicken sheds at a farm near where I used to live, the smell used to hang thickly in the air.


Have you ever turned out to support a protest or picket line

No there is no union for house husbands.

To start an argument with a redhead all you need do is say something.
How do you get a redhead to change her mind?

Note: I am married to a redhead and these were given to me by my redhead daughter.


marymary100 - 6-5-2009 at 15:50

My mother was a redhead and I'd say from experience just present the facts and don't bring emotion into the conversation. No-one can out-emote a redhead.

marymary100 - 9-5-2009 at 14:15

Don't usually use spreads. Tomatoes have enough lubrication in them and they are usually included in any sandwich. I do however like crusty bread and olive oil.

My wife arranged a party at a club in manchester that we used to go to. It was for my 50th.
I was led to believe that the place was closed for stock taking that week end. We were going up to help and have a drink with the owners.
I dropped Mrs bear off and then went and parked the car at the hotel we were staying at.

When I got back the place was in darkness, I knocked and the door was opened by Paul who said to step inside as the lights had just fused. I went in, the lights came on and the place was full, There were people there that I hadnt seen in years, we partied till 5 in the morning.
We went back to the hotel and slept for most of the day, on the Sunday before we left the hotel laid on a birthday breakfast.

On the way home Mrs B made some pretext to go via a place in North Wales were I was wisked up and away in a Microlite. (not good for a lingering hang over) ( for microlite read lawnmower engine suspended under a large table cloth.

Are grammer schools a thing of the past, should all children have the same choices.

Are you adventuous with your food, and will try new dishes or is your menu carved in stone. ( I had a friend who ate nothing but Beans on toast and oranges). Whats the most unusual thing you have evereaten.


Regards the Bear


Mary2 - 20-5-2009 at 10:05

I'll try anything - seaweed, squid, testicles were probably the most unusual unless you count sheep's intestines...

Why are people who like Butterflies often terrified of Moths ?


the bear - 20-5-2009 at 19:49

Perhaps its to do with the fact that moths fly at night and make quite a lot of noise when they bat against windows and lampshades


Have you ever thought of growing a giant maffow or pumpkin?


Regards the Bear


victor - 20-5-2009 at 20:25

Never seen a giant maffow only small ones that can only just be seen by the human eye if you're lucky. :D

We do have a biggest marrow contest at our annual village flower and vegetable show and some people grow some whoppers.

I could take a wild guess... :D

Would you buy a child safety seat if you had a visitor with a toddler coming for a few days or take taxis everywhere?

Are you going to tell us ?


the bear - 23-5-2009 at 22:08

Yes, In Shakespearian times mattresses were secured to the bed with a couple of ropes, if you pulled the rope tight the mattress gave more support, hence the saying.

Mrs Ballman I think....?!

If you could choose a talent, any talent, what would it be...?

(BTW - Re the Dads @ birth thing... When Mrs D was having Little D, I was *really* suffering with my back that day, and had even popped out to go and lie on a bench outside for ten minutes whilst she was early into her labour. Mrs D was ok with that, except, everytime the Midwife/nurse came back in to check on Mrs D, she also kept asking about me and my back... After a few hours of labour pain it began to grate on Mrs D that they were showing concern for my back, instead her having the wee fella. (In her eyes anyway, it wasn't really the case, but it felt like it, for her...!) Still rags her up now...! Lol :D)

No--Christmas is December 25 (one of the Church Fathers argues that this is the true date, as celebrated in Rome, which, as capital of the Roman Empire, was in the habit of noting and preserving reliable records). Some parts of Christendom celebrate on January 6.

Cremation or Burial?


Regards the Bear

Burial. For many centuries, Christians had the tradition of entombing their bodies as if they were sleeping, to awaken with their souls restored on the Last Day. Burning a body was horrible thing in the Old Testament Scriptures. The Bishops of Rome have spoken against the cremation practice.

Still, the Scriptures do not require burial, it is only the early and widest custom.

Incidentally, I learned this morning that, because of bad management of the state of Illinois funds for burials for the poor, the state will no longer pay ANYTHING to help. Perhaps I will be put in a bag and covered with dirt. I do have pastor friends who would do the memorial service for free, if necessary.

The short answer is no, it wouldn't bother me.

I live in the path of the local airport but there is no air traffic normally after midnight so it is no problem. Many of my relatives were pilots, air hostesses or worked as air traffic controllers so I grew up around airports.

Do you like aisle or window seats?

Can you drive a truck?


marymary100 - 5-7-2009 at 13:37

No idea. I'd give it a bash, so to speak.

Have you undertaken advanced driving?


Quaver - 5-7-2009 at 14:21

No, but would like to:)

Are you a good driver?

Do you play any online games and if so what ones?

Nope! Too many other things to do.

Do you have very neat handwriting or is yours a scrawl?....Does it lean to the left or the right or just stands straight up....(mine leans to the left which I am told is unusual).
:P:Pwaveysmiley


marymary100 - 8-7-2009 at 09:57

I seldom handwrite as all my paperwork is done on the computer now so my handwriting is a bit of a scrawl by comparison to what it used to be.

(It would be classed as Nelson script which if you're a Scot is probably what you were taught too. My father has wonderful writing and even earned extra money as a sign-writer as he could copy any script, including old English.)

Have you ever been to a safari park or even on a real safari?


John_Little - 8-7-2009 at 10:53

No but my brother-in-law has, quite recently.

I don't know if it was a wind up, but they went out to see some lions. When they got to the area they expected them to be, the guide identified a problem that suggested that it might be safer to leave the area. He gave my brother-in-law one of the rifles and asked him to bring up the rear of the party as they headed back to the truck.

Have you ever killed an animal? (as in pheasant shooting, deer hunting etc)


marymary100 - 8-7-2009 at 11:03

No, I keep ending up places where they pressured you into overtime OR just locked the doors until we were finished clearing up. (Despite the fact our shifts had ended, and we had places to be!)

Have you ever started an accidental fire?

Do you prefer a small dog who can jump into your lap when you wish, or do you want a dog who stays on the floor or in his designated places (in which case you have the option of him being too large for your lap)?


marymary100 - 11-7-2009 at 19:05

I prefer labrador/retriever sized dogs.

Game shows or documentaries?

If you were given one as a gift, would you want an electric car e.g. Volt or Tesla), or would you prefer the old internal combustion engine?

Survivor. It is like the whole world on a small scale and is an interesting study of human nature and how our decisions affect our lives. It shows the advantages of knowledge, friendship, working with others and how to promote yourself without alienating others.waveysmiley

When home what percentage of your waking hours do you spend outside?


marymary100 - 26-7-2009 at 14:29

I have no idea what you mean by this. On working days I'm out of the house for a minimum of 10 hours a day. On non-working day probably about 3-4 hours. If you mean in the garden, only when working in it which would be a couple of hours a month, tops.

Ever seen a film/ play called Equus?


victor - 26-7-2009 at 22:04

marymary100 - 27-7-2009 at 00:24

marymary100 - 27-7-2009 at 00:36

the bear - 28-7-2009 at 05:11

When I was younger I would paint the outside of my house myself, in fact I would take care of the house maintainance myself,
With the exception of electical work.

I still do all the internal decoration myself, it akes me longer now but I quite enjoy it. ( have just finished the main bedroom ). got some small jobs to do then its a full make over for the kitchen before Christmas.

I tend to use electronic communication as it is faster. Although I recently made a greeting card using one of my images on watercolor paper that I sent to an old friend. Due to my injury, I typeset the message inside it, however (with an explaination why).

Right or Left-handed verses left or right EYED? (Example, I am right handed but do everything like shoot a gun, operate a camera, etc. LEFT EYED).


marymary100 - 11-8-2009 at 09:20

Do you store much stuff on your computer, and not back it up? (Stuff you'd be heart broken over if you lost it.)

(BTW MM, PM me re emachine if you like...?)


marymary100 - 13-8-2009 at 10:17

I back most things up and am prepared to lose the stuff I don't bother doing. I may buy an external drive however to make the back-ups all in the one place as it gets tedious trying to remember where everything is.

I have one, that I like to put under me, because it tends to get bunched up if I put one on top, creating a heat concentration. Instead, I put a sleeping bag or a comforter on top. (I think it stopped working. I hope to be able to replace it by winter.)

Do you keep papers and magazines for that certain article that you can never find again?



Regards, the Bear

Dont have a scrap book but save articles in a series of box files.

A lap top or a note book, might have to be a reconditioned / secondhand one ( I have a friend who deals in them).

I want one so that I can still work on my stories when picnicing in the country.

My PC is a Hybrid, A friend built it for me after sorting out what I was going to use it for.

When it boots up it flys an Acer logo, I have an epsom printer hooked up and I have an old CDU screen made by Time.
( Screen donated by a friend when the thin LCD screen gave up the ghost).

I'm currently using 41 Mb of an available 7453Mb of disc space.


Do you own a Lap top and if so whats the most unusual place you have used it.


Regards the Bear

Looks like being Con Dem.

Do you think we should close the frontiers to immigrants

Nimuae - 11-5-2010 at 07:39

'Con' being the operative word where our government is concerned !

Yes - we have reached saturation point.

Which culture's mythology do you find most interesting ?

Do you give blood?


LSemmens - 28-5-2010 at 11:58

I used to, but my BP went up for a while. Is now under control by medication, I have not returned as the nearest collection is 60Km away and only infrequently, so, unless I am in the area on collection day, and know about it, it doesn't happen.

Would you donate your organs when you finally "kick the bucket"?


scholar - 28-5-2010 at 12:02

When schedule permits, I give blood plasma (the liquid part of blood, which can save the life of hemophiliacs and help burn victims and accident victims) twice a week--but I don't give whole blood (including the cells), because that would disqualify me from plasma donation for eight weeks.

No, but they are overdue, so I may break out the shampooing kit.

Do you buy the best you can possibly afford, or the cheapest?


victor - 29-5-2010 at 18:08

Always shop around for the cheapest price on the best.

Yes I do like homemade bread but don't make it often.

When travelling on a ferry ( dover to Calis say) do you stop to read the safety advice.


Regards the Bear


LSemmens - 17-6-2010 at 11:42

Having never travelled the Dover to Calais ferry, the answer would be no! Even on a Ferry across the River Murray, I've still not read the safety instructions.

When flying, do you pay attention to the Host/ess instructions about crashes etc?


Mary2 - 17-6-2010 at 12:07

Well I would.

Who was or is your favorite individual dog? (You need not have owned the dog. If you have not been a dog owner, it may be someone else's, or even a famous dog.)


LSemmens - 2-12-2010 at 14:15

Rusty! Our late Ridgeback cross! He, we suspect, was a camp dog, he wandered into our yard one day, riddled with ticks and rather mal-nourished, we fed and cleaned him, of course he satyed! He must be the only dog in the world that could not wait for the fireworks to be let off. If we tried to lock him away, he'd be most indignant. He'd sit there all aquiver when you light the wick, follow the sparkles and bangs and look most disappointed when the display was over. He'd also line up with the kids for ice-cream, He'd not push in, but wouldn't let anyone else push in to the line either! Then he'd expect you to hold it whilst he licked it. Never "one bight and it's gone" he'd have to savour every last drip! Sorry, waxing lyrical now.....

What projects have you got planned for the near future?

Light or dark chocolate?

Dark chocolate, if it's a pure chocolate bar.

(But light chocolate, if it's part of a candybar with other things mixed in.)

Do you wear a warm cap, even though it messes up your hair, or do you save your hair and let your head get cold?

Do you play chess or not?


waffler - 4-12-2010 at 18:45

Yes very badly

desktop or laptop


scholar - 4-12-2010 at 21:12

I've favored desktop systems. They give a greater value for what you spend, and there is more room inside a good tower for adding hard drives and replaceable media drives.

Do you wear sunglasses during winter?:cool:


Redwolf5150 - 4-12-2010 at 21:40

Have to on sunny days as I am susceptible to snow blindness having been snow blinded once before.

Movies on DVD/video or in the theater?


LSemmens - 5-12-2010 at 12:54

On TV! They're cheaper! Typically, if it's a "must see" then the big screen wins every time!


When is someone going to pay the power bill and turn on summer? It's December the 5th and it's still raining! I left that behind in Darwin!

Hatchback or saloon


LSemmens - 6-12-2010 at 12:06

Saloon, I've had hatches, and they are useful, but not nearly big enough. They don't make luxury wagons in OZ that are affordable, yet.

Are you sure it's nearly Christmas? It's raining again!


waffler - 8-12-2010 at 01:29

No Rain here just cold and a chance of snow

We still have a Yorkshire terrier who's so bright and clever and great fun.

Salt and pepper, or seasoning salt?

Touring or activity most definitely


On Holiday, bare foot, sandles or sandles with socks

Actually, it's walking shoes for me when I'm on holiday, unless the conditions would destroy them, in which case I either prefer crocs (more comfortable than sandals) or hiking boots.

For a small meal-is a large sandwich enough, or must you eat at least one other food (not counting your drink)?


the bear - 11-3-2011 at 02:43

As I do all the food at home I have what I want.


I normally eat things like beetroot, pickles and raddish with meat or cheese sandwiches.


Is a relaxing evening by the fire with a book or the TV.


Regards the Bear


scholar - 13-3-2011 at 03:00

I would prefer to be by the fire with a book, but I have no fireplace (except in the Late Night Club, or when I visit church camp). Most evenings at home, I do watch some TV.

A live Christmas tree, an artifical one, or none at all?

Don't like jogging at all - bad for the knees - but I cannot swim! Wish I could, it always looks like good fun !


Gardening or DIY ?


scholar - 15-3-2011 at 23:50

Do-It-Yourself. My parents gardened, and I know the basic elements (I can spade up the soil, plant seeds, plant plants, and weed), but I do not have the organizational knowledge (which plants and seeds to get, when to plant them, when to water them, etc.). But, DIY projects can sometimes be done in a single week, with instructions from the internet or a book.


Would you pet a tame snake, such as a person's pet?


marymary100 - 16-3-2011 at 00:20

I've worn a snake over both shoulders in the past and had a photo of one being held by my daughter, not sure where it would be now though. It wasn't quite as cold as I imagined it would be.

If you could only save one fiction book from a fahrenheit 451 bonfire, which book would it be?


scholar - 25-3-2011 at 14:32

I hesitated to answer this, because there are so many good books from which to choose.

I think I'll pick Isaac Asimove's Foundation Trilogy (bound in one volume), because I am an Asimov fan and enjoyed it immensely when I was young.

How do you deal with pest insects? Poison them, swat them, leave them alone, or use barriers against them?

"The Gods themselves" comes to mind when I think of Asimov although he did write some very good short stories


Insects ? Swat them if they become a pest otherwise leave them be.

Bus. They go so many places, but passenger trains are limited in the U.S. to relatively few routes.

Have you ever driven a go-kart? [Does the word need explanation?]


Nimuae - 27-3-2011 at 08:06

Original art from lesser known artists or prints of famous ones?


scholar - 28-3-2011 at 14:39

Original is my preference. I am actually more interested in the content of the art--whether it interests me--than anything else. I remember some black light posters that I owned, decades ago, that I miss. One was an elaborate castle, the other was an elaborate tree house. One could gaze at either for a long time, with your eyes going from room to room, from tower to tower.

Laced shoes, or shoes without laces?


Nimuae - 28-3-2011 at 15:00

Laced shoes for hiking/walking. Unlaced court shoes for everyday wear.

Jeans or slacks ?

Would you cut a deal or play all the way to the end?


scholar - 29-3-2011 at 21:49

I would cut a deal. Tens of thousands would improve my life greatly, and I would not want to risk going away empty-handed. I would guess greed for the highest cash prize has led many people to disappointment.

I wear soft continuous-wear contact lenses all the time, but I have strong lower-vision reading glasses that I wear all the time. Back when I was first learning Hebrew, I already used a magnifying glass to easily see the vowel pointing.

Many comprehensive scholarly works, such as certain Bible Dictionaries and encyclopedias, use small print so that their thousands of pages will not require even more pages.

I regularly go for long walks, or hirples.


When was the last time you redecorated?


LSemmens - 1-4-2011 at 11:46

Am working on it now! Painting done, floors sanded and polished, looks like the carpet needs replacing too, so that will be next. We may get back home one day!

What's been happening lately?


scholar - 5-4-2011 at 02:57

Lately--I've been waiting on a blower fan for my car's heater, and I've driven with Ruby to look for a replacement coolant reservoir (since hers developed a leak).

Also, a driver drove her van so as to collide with my car from the rear, and I saw the insurance adjuster today. I hope to get some compensation for the damage soon.


Which do you find more entertaining, rabbits or squirrels?

Just three/four. (Took in a parcel for a neighbour, gave someone a lift and spoke to a couple of friends who were having a problem)

Do you change your inside decorations (e.g. paintings or prints, decorative figures) in a rotation so as to see different ones through the year, or do you display what you like best all the time, even over more than a year?


marymary100 - 9-4-2011 at 12:58

I don't have enough to rotate scholar. The only time things change is at Christmas.

Are you the gardener or the flower in your relationship?

I am the gardener.

Do you prefer glasses (spectacles) or contact lenses? (Or, possibly, eye surgery?)


scholar - 13-4-2011 at 00:44

Since I've gotten no response--and, on reflection, I don't know if many of us have good eyesight and need no correction--I'll switch to a different question.

Would you prefer to participate in a sport if you could, or do you prefer to watch a spectator sport?

Not as many as I would have liked, I was in the habit of reading at least two books a week, but just recently have had other demands on my time. ( I've still been buying books at the same rate so I'll be playing catch up when I do have the time.


Would you want a last day with your pet dog or cat if the vet told you because of old age the animal needed putting down


Regards the Bear


scholar - 16-4-2011 at 03:29

Reading between the lines here--if the vet says my pet must be put down, he must be in pain or some kind of health distress; ohterwise, the doctor would surely say a healthy old pet should live out his natural life.

So, I think I would decline the additional day. (But, I must admit, this is theoretical, since I do not presently have a dog or cat.)

Cut flowers, or a living plant, for indoor decoration?


scholar - 25-4-2011 at 10:40

Since no one has answered, I will switch to another question.

Who among your teachers made the greatest positive impression on you? (You might say something about him, since a name without description would not tell us anything.);)


marymary100 - 25-4-2011 at 12:26

It wasn't a"him". Miss Williamson was a terrific, but eccentric, English teacher I had when I was doing my O-Levels. When we were studying Shakespeare she used to get us to act it out and chose the campest guy we had in class to play Malvolio who wears yellow cross-gartered stockings. I still laugh when I think of it. She used to make people who talked stand in a chalk fairy circle and if they stayed still they got no further punishment. If they fell outside she gave them the tawse. Happy days!

Are you more comfortable in the company of men or women?


scholar - 26-4-2011 at 12:48

It is a near tie. If I must choose one, it would be women.

Do you enjoy riding in a convertible with the top down when the weather is warm enough, or do you prefer a hard top car?:)


LSemmens - 27-4-2011 at 11:52

Rag top, but I don't own one!

If money were no object, would your first purchase be a new home or a better car?


scholar - 27-4-2011 at 12:22

A better car. My present car needs some parts replaced.

What clothes do you feel best in? (Depending on your feelings, your answer may reflect either comfort or appearance.:D)


marymary100 - 27-4-2011 at 16:45

Right now I'm wearing palazzo pants and a long top with a handkerchief edge. It's the sort of outfit that was smart for work and would also do if I went out tonight - which I'm considering atm.

What language do you wish you could speak?


LSemmens - 29-4-2011 at 14:24

Did you watch Willie get hitched?

marymary100 - 25-5-2011 at 22:37

What's warm weather?


Take the lift or the stairs?


scholar - 25-5-2011 at 22:51

How do you like your eggs in the morning?


scholar - 25-5-2011 at 23:07

I most like eggs as omellettes, with blends of mild cheddar cheese and jack or colby, a little spinach, some sausage or ham, some mushrooms, and perhaps some bell pepper or cooked onions. A three-egg omellette is about the right size for me.

Neither. I am challenged to keep my lawn mowed, the leaves raked, etc. I don't think it would be fair to my neighbors if I let appearances go even more because I was spending more time on gardening.

My father grew his plants from seeds.

Should we charge more for alcohol to stop people getting regularly guttered?

Yes, Robbery.

Have you ever been to Prison?


marymary100 - 20-2-2012 at 20:07

Not even as a visitor.

Do you regularly buy any magazines?


Nimuae - 20-2-2012 at 20:34

No - only the occasional craft one.

What are your favourite sweets ?


marymary100 - 20-2-2012 at 20:47

Laptop

Do you read reviews before buying something new?


waffler - 23-2-2012 at 00:10

Useully when I'm buying computer parts off the net
Recently bought a ride on mower and read the reviews .

Coffee or Tea


scholar - 23-2-2012 at 03:06

Tea, and I prefer one of the flavored kinds. Janet used to call it "hippie tea." :D (I miss Janet.)

What do you do when someone you love has gotten angry with you?


marymary100 - 23-2-2012 at 07:16

The people I love don't get angry with me. We're the kind of "talk through our problems" family rather than the "shout it out" kind.



How many e-mail accounts do you have?


Nimuae - 23-2-2012 at 09:14

three. One general, one for friends only, and one for business.

What pets do you have ?


marymary100 - 23-2-2012 at 17:00

None. I will get another dog when I have more time at home.



Do you like peanut butter?


Nimuae - 23-2-2012 at 17:12

Do you prefer theatre or cinema ?

Ooohh, difficult. Theatre probably.


Do you "guild the lily"?


scholar - 27-4-2012 at 03:15

No, I don't.

Was your first car a manual (stick shift) or an automatic?


marymary100 - 27-4-2012 at 06:14

We don't do automatic here. If you pass a test in an automatic you are not allowed to drive a geared car alone.

Are you forgetful?


waffler - 27-4-2012 at 09:54

Oops sorry I forgot what the question was :)


Cut flowers or Pot plants


scholar - 27-4-2012 at 15:15

I hope you are asking about POTTED plants, not POT plants.

In my home, Ruby has a large potted peace lily that was given us by a church--so the answer is potted.

Umbrella, or coat and hat suitable to keep you dry? (If someone from the UK doesn't pick umbrella, it will break a cultural image.):D


marymary100 - 27-4-2012 at 20:46

I like the rain so seldom have a hat or an umbrella.

What is the meaning of life ?


marymary100 - 4-6-2012 at 11:53

Quote:
the question itself is a hodgepodge. It defies a simple answer because it needs to be carefully unpacked and dissected before it even makes sense.

That's why Douglas Adams' gag about the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything being 42 is so insightful. You can't expect to get a sensible answer unless you ask a sensible question. But what the hell is "What's the meaning of life?" or "What's it all about?" supposed to mean? They may be grammatical, but so are "What's the meaning of cheese?" and "What's grass all about?" - and I defy anyone to give a serious answer to either. We think of the quest for life's meaning as like a journey along a yellow brick road which will lead us to an awesome, mysterious source of all the answers. The truth is that, like the Wizard of Oz, the grandeur and remoteness of the meaning of life is all front. Pull back the curtain and the mystery vanishes.

If the meaning of life is not some esoteric piece of wisdom, a hidden key that, once discovered, will unlock the secrets of the universe and end our quest for understanding, then what is it? It might help to start by trying to imagine what the taxi driver really wanted to know. The most natural interpretation is that he was puzzled by why we are all here. But even that is ambiguous. Is that a question about where we came from or where we're going?


is as good an answer as any.

Subtlety is not your strong point, Bear, I asked two questions up there (Hint: look for the question marks)

Guilty Pleasure? I never feel guilty, if I enjoy it.

Now: back to the questions

Do you prefer a raging fire or some other form of home heating?

Would you prefer a museum or an Art gallery? regards the Bear


scholar - 6-6-2012 at 00:21

A museum, because of the greater variety.

Scooter or motercycle?


LSemmens - 6-6-2012 at 00:26

Museum if it is relevant. Though on the last trip to the art Gallery I came across one piece of art that was brilliant. So good, in fact that they let me photograph it! I'll find a piccie and post it.

Both - only if homemade.

Younger, older or the same age for lifes partner?

I don't really care, SWMBO is about 12mths younger, One son has a wife some 14 years older, another son's fiancée is a few years his junior. As long as they are willing to love one another and stick together if the going gets tough.

How many kids do you have / would like?


scholar - 10-6-2012 at 21:03

After birthday 200, you're too old. But some people act too old, before then. (I still run when I could walk, lie down on the grass, etc.)

Ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sherbert?

marymary100 - 23-6-2012 at 22:38

Day



Radio or CDs on long trips?


scholar - 24-6-2012 at 00:18

Radio, because I can get more mental stimulation and information.

Style of bicycle--thin racing tires, or fatter rugged tires?


marymary100 - 24-6-2012 at 08:25

What's a bicycle and why would I need one? I walk if it is close enough and drive if it is not.


Which country has the tastiest cuisine in your opinion?


Nimuae - 24-6-2012 at 08:59

Italy or Greece would be my first choices - but I like Indian and Chinese as well.

Steak

Shop till you drop or online?


LSemmens - 25-6-2012 at 01:49

Shop, till I drop.... I'd never get anything, I get what I need and go home! Online is good for items that I don't need immediately, and the pricing is good.

What sort of car would you purchase if there were no "outside" (money, family, work) considerations?


scholar - 9-5-2013 at 23:33

Do you think that the Queen will abdicate in favour of Charlie?


scholar - 19-5-2013 at 23:56

I left this alone for a long time, thinking a UK person would take it. But, since none have. . .

I think the Queen will hang on, and then the crown will pass to the grandson. Charles is "damaged goods" because of the way he treated Di, including his adultery.

Do you ever still ride a bicycle? (I rode one to work when I had no car at home, some months ago. And, I found the bike needs to have the seat raised for an adult to ride it comfortably.)


marymary100 - 20-5-2013 at 05:57

I do not ride a bicycle, nor do I wish to.

Do you like to watch competitions? If so which kind?


Nimuae - 20-5-2013 at 07:07

When I had a TV I used to watch University Challenge, Only Connect and Mastermind - if that counts.

Do you enjoy cooking ?


LSemmens - 20-5-2013 at 12:33

I do, if I have the time and money, unfortunately time is at a premium now, so I only cook of necessity, i.e. every day.

What new thing have you learnt today?


Nimuae - 20-5-2013 at 13:14

Bread and butter or bread and jam?


scholar - 21-5-2013 at 17:52

Bread and jam. I have become turned off to grape jelly because I have had it too many times, but strawberry jam, cherry jam, raspberry jam, blackberry jam, etc. are all really welcome (exception: gooseberryshocked_yellow which is way too strong-tart-sour).

What was the last recreational vehicle in which you rode? (Cars on the road don't count. Bikes, boats, go-carts, scooters would all qualify.))

Yes, just about everything except food and minor expenses. I'm currently looking for a lens for my new camera.

What sort of car do you drive?


Nimuae - 22-5-2013 at 06:27

I don't - but I learned to drive in an audi if that counts.

Have you ever dieted successfully and on which diet ?


scholar - 23-5-2013 at 03:00

Well, I lost some pounds when I had food poisoning. Can we count that?

Do you fancy the newer three-wheel motorcycles, or does it have to be the older two-wheel style to suit your taste?


marymary100 - 23-5-2013 at 06:04

Neither but I thought Billy Connolly looked uber cool in his trike on his tour of America.

LSemmens - 23-5-2013 at 10:16

Only 'cause it died and I've never bothered to replace it, though could use it on occasion.

Holiday at home or abroad?

Would you work longer hours for less money or accept redundancy?


scholar - 23-5-2013 at 19:50

Longer hours for less money. (I wish I could get more hours, even at the not-to-great rate I'm being paid.)

Have you ever flown in a propeller airplane, or have you only flown in jets?

I have flown in a small propellered aeroplane to the Channel Islands.

What is you favourite fruit ?


LSemmens - 23-5-2013 at 23:48

Rambutan!

Have you ever tried a "Millionaire's Salad"?
(I'll explain that one later :D, if you haven't, you won't know what it is)


Nimuae - 24-5-2013 at 06:41

I don't believe that I have, Leigh. Not by that name anyway.

Have you ever hugged a lion, tiger, or other wild animal ?


LSemmens - 24-5-2013 at 09:29

No!, I've managed to touch a crocodile, through the cage, though.

BTW: "Millionaires salad" is the heart of a coconut, not the fruit, but the tree before it becomes the new leaf shoot. To get to it, you must kill the tree. It's crunchy, not quite as crunchy as a carrot or as soft as a peach. Taste is nothing like the "meat" of a coconut, but has a more nutty taste.

Now, to the question.

What did you have for tea (dinner) tonight?


Nimuae - 24-5-2013 at 09:57

Dinner last night was chicken casserole and rice.

Do you like sci-fi films ?

I like the ones I judge to be be good, e.g Iron Man, the Avengers, most Star Trek, and many that were developed from novels. But, there are many that are poorly written and shallow, too.

Would you rather be inside on a sunny day or outside in the rain?


LSemmens - 25-5-2013 at 11:12

Either, 'cause it means that I'm still breathing!

If you could afford either would you prefer to fly or drive on a holiday at home?

Drive, but train is my UK mode of transport by choice usually.

No - unfortunately - I live in 'smoke free' zone !

Do you ever play or watch golf ?


marymary100 - 26-5-2013 at 09:43

I live near Royal Troon so see golf being played often and my daughter's bf has worked as a catering assistant during the Open in those famous sponsor marquees. It's a nice little earner for the local youths.

Do you have voile/sheer curtains or some other sort of window covering? (I was looking at blinds yesterday which looked very much like rigid sheers)


Nimuae - 26-5-2013 at 11:28

Venetian blinds in the craft room, voile in the bedroom as it is not over looked by anybody, and boring nets and drapes in the sitting room as the front garden is quite small and people could see in otherwise.

I absolutely lost it recently when a co worker told me to 'shush'. I found this to be completely unacceptable and quite literally went nuts. I even punched the wall.... minions beware...

No. I need to tile the kitchen and have been putting it off but that won't take 5 minutes unfortunately. I need to lop trees and paint many walls as well...:(


Do you faithfully tip when out for a meal or only if the service is beyond good?

marymary100 - 27-5-2013 at 19:05

Educational Psychologist but here it is a 2 year full time course of study which now has to be funded directly by the person themselves as they've already had their degree funded so I can't even afford to contemplate it.

Do you think Britain has got talent?

QOR

I would categorize differently. Comics and graphic novels are a mode of presentation for various genres that can also be presented in movies or novels. The science fiction genre can appear in movie form, comic form, or novel form. Science fiction characters with exceptional powers were important in novels before comic books were ever printed (this is the major theme of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which brings together versions of novel characters).

If one wishes to consider a superhero sub-genre in science fiction, it should be defined by content, not by whether the characters appeared in comic books, the same as there are sub-genres in science fiction for time travel movies, robot movies, etc.

I remember comic book series that included Westerns, Romance, cartoon animals, teen-age hijinx, etc.

Do you find recent modern music greatly enjoyable, or do you find yourself judging the music popular in your youth to be the best?


Nimuae - 28-5-2013 at 06:43

Not too keen on modern music - too noisy and some of the lyrics leave a lot to be desired. Prefer classical and C & W. Johnny Cash rules !!

Bus. They are more flexible. And, in the US, they are cheaper (the government wastes huge amounts of money subsidizing routes that cannot sustain themselves economically).

No - but I would like to try. Problem is - I cannot swim !

Have you ever kept chickens ?


marymary100 - 31-5-2013 at 06:13

No but when I lived in Iraq a woman used to come to the garden bearing chickens which she then killed and plucked on the spot. I was a vegetarian when I lived there as butchery was a bit too real.


If you had to kill the animals you wanted to eat yourself, could you?


Nimuae - 31-5-2013 at 08:36

No - I am a hypocritical carnivore. I cannot bear to see bones in things and could never even pluck and draw something that was already dead.

If the alternative was to be in pain and dependent on others for my bodily needs - then Yes, Leigh - I would prefer to go with some vestige of dignity, and have left clear instructions to that effect. We don't think twice about ending a beloved pet's suffering, do we ?


Given a choice which would you prefer - a loft conversion or a conservatory ?

Suggest something for my tea tonight. I don't know what to have.


Nimuae - 3-6-2013 at 17:15

Difficult one - not knowing what is in your store ! As it is such a lovely warm day how about a lovely fresh salad with coleslaw, potato salad and a selection of meats or cheeses, with fruit to follow.


Do you prefer fresh or tinned Tuna and Salmon ?


marymary100 - 3-6-2013 at 17:24

I like fresh. (I live 2 minutes from the store. I can get whatever I want up until 10 at night!)


Do you watch tv every day?


John_Little - 4-6-2013 at 07:36

No. Not when we are at our summer retreat. We do listen to Radio 4 every day.

Have you ever skinny dipped?


Nimuae - 4-6-2013 at 09:00

Yes - off Filey Brigg - when I was about 18. Foolhardy - because I cannot swim, but not totally dangerous as the people I was with were all strong swimmers.

Have you ever ridden side-saddle on either a horse or a motor cycle ?


John_Little - 4-6-2013 at 11:28

No but I've been in the front the back and in the side car on motor cycles - not all at the same time, of course.

What food or drink would you hate to have to give up?


Nimuae - 4-6-2013 at 20:40

Cheese, Italian food and wines. champagne.


If you were being married and money were no object - would you prefer a lavish fairytale day or something simpler and more intimate ?


marymary100 - 4-6-2013 at 21:18

I would go for a mixture of the two. A local castle does receptions for between 36 to 60 guests and that would be more than enough. However I have had enough bites at that cherry.

LSemmens - 5-6-2013 at 01:37

Nimuae - 5-6-2013 at 16:55

Last summer - went Harrogate for the day with some freinds. When we were nearly home I reached into my pocket for the keys - not there. Had locked up very careful - and left the keys dangling in the front door lock!

Which do you prefer to take on weekend break - suitcase, holdall or backpack ?


marymary100 - 5-6-2013 at 17:40

A suitcase on wheels.


Do you push or pull your wheeled suitcase?

marymary100 - 5-6-2013 at 21:09

It depends how long the holiday is for. I can pack light for a weekend.

Do you style your hair or leave it to do what it likes?


Nimuae - 5-6-2013 at 21:50

Around the house it does what it likes, I just make sure it is tidy before I'm seen in public. Going out to dine/theatre/cinema etc., it does what I want it to and is elegantly styled.


Have you ever worn a wig ?


marymary100 - 5-6-2013 at 22:17

No but my grandmother had only one kidney and lost a lot of her hair so wore a wig whenever there were people in her house.

Have you ever had a dream that has come true?

Do you dry your laundry indoors (tumble dryer) or outside ?


Queen of Ra - 7-6-2013 at 12:05

Indoors - I have an open garden (no fences or whatnot) and so don't relish the idea of my knickers being on display for my neighbours to see (on a washing line, not on self)!

What was the scariest rollercoaster you have even been on?


marymary100 - 7-6-2013 at 15:31

If you were allowed only one book - apart from the bible - what would it be ?


marymary100 - 8-6-2013 at 07:28

That's a difficult one because no one book could stand up to constant repetition. A large book of paintings or photographs might however so perhaps Capa or the entire works of Shakespeare?

Is life diminished or enhanced by retirement?


LSemmens - 9-6-2013 at 02:09

Enhanced! I can't work out how I ever found the time to go to work!

What are you plans for retirement (or the next few years if retirement is already upon you).


marymary100 - 9-6-2013 at 08:45

I can't go yet financially - or indeed age-wise - but the way things are going with budgets being slashed all the time I may have no choice in a few years. I would take up writing, painting and swimming on the hobby front and house maintenance on the "have to" side of life. Other than that if finances allowed I'd do some voluntary work and travel - and if they didn't I'd try to find something part time.

If you had a favourite restaurant and they overcharged you would you overlook it or give them another go?

What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done ?


LSemmens - 18-6-2013 at 08:01

Many things others might consider dangerous, but probably the most hazardous, to me, was standing on the top step of a twenty foot ladder reaching up above me to terminate a cable in the middle of a busy shop that was open for business. Other things, riding motor cycles, tree lopping without safety harness, scuba diving (not really dangerous, but some people don't like it) standing on the edge of a precipice looking at the scenery. Climbing around the scaffolding supporting a huge bird cage (40ft high). Nothing much.

What would you consider dangerous that others would say, "Ha!" like, spiders?


Queen of Ra - 18-6-2013 at 12:49

Bunjee jumping - why, why would you do that?

Have you ever been on a plane that had to land 'unexpectedly'?


marymary100 - 18-6-2013 at 16:37

Yes - we had a near miss in America - Boston I think. We also had a layover once at Washington because the replacement part for the plane whose axel fell off en route needed to be flown over by Concorde. shocked_yellow


Do you consider flying safe?


Nimuae - 18-6-2013 at 21:32

I did - until I read your reply to the previous question !

Would you sue your doctor if something went wrong?


Nimuae - 1-7-2013 at 08:40

Hmm - not sure. A lot would depend on serious it was and whether or not I thought it was entirely his fault. A while ago one of my GPs poisoned me - but only because neither of us knew I was allergic to the medication he prescribed. I would not sue for something like that.

Thread drift

My dear wife Ruby, who used to be Baptist, likes crucifixes but does not know the customs about them.

She has found various ones I have had in boxes, on shelves, etc. (purchased, but not on display yet) and has loaded the walls of the living room with them. She put them all up while I was out of the house.

I think it is common to have just one in a room, and certainly not several on the same wall, a few feet apart.

LSemmens - 5-7-2013 at 00:47

I used to be quite good a roller skating. Yes, I have tried a skateboard when my kids had one.

What is your favourite sport?


scholar - 5-7-2013 at 00:52

My favorite sport, in which to participate, is volleyball. I am a pretty reliable server (at the level of skill of the groups in which I participate, it is more common to lose by missing a serve than by other means. I get it in bounds, and count on my team's skill to bring home the point).

What is your favorite kind of cake?


waffler - 5-7-2013 at 14:01

Pound Cake

What do you put on your chips ?


delanti - 8-7-2013 at 20:52

Absolutely not! The only thing I put ketchup on is a Hot Dog and bad meatloaf. I have had a personal ketchup boycott for years because no matter what you put the stuff on, burger or steak it ends up tasting like ketchup.lips_sealed

Now to the question.....

Do you prefer to watch, or participate, in sport?


marymary100 - 9-7-2013 at 00:18

Have you ever lost something irreplaceable?

LSemmens - 19-7-2013 at 08:22

Turn on the air conditioner!

How else?


marymary100 - 19-7-2013 at 08:38

In the absence of a question Leigh, I'll answer Nim's again.


I keep cool by wearing a dishdasha when indoors and drinking lots of liquid.

Nimuae - 25-7-2013 at 09:21

Yes - our immediate area is classed as 'No cold callers' - doesn't keep out the JWs though!


Do you/would you ever invite JWs or Mormons in to discuss their theories ?


marymary100 - 25-7-2013 at 09:31

Good grief no. I find it odd that they travel so far afield to prosletyze. One young girl came to my house and because I teach her I know she lives about 30 miles away from me. Embarrassment all round.


Do you often get a "wrong number" calling your house?


LSemmens - 25-7-2013 at 10:40

Yes! We are number 26 and number 26A is actually three houses and a street away. The reason being that the houses on the corner are actually addressed as being in the cross street!

Have you ever shaved your head?


marymary100 - 25-7-2013 at 23:36

I've considered it but not done it.


If the internet disappeared tomorrow, would you be disappointed?


LSemmens - 26-7-2013 at 09:18

Only 'cause I'd miss my friends, here and it would be a nuisance when I was looking for information on something. Humanity managed to get to this stage without it, so, I suppose we'd survive.

marymary100 - 26-7-2013 at 09:50

Do you add chilies to your food?


LSemmens - 27-7-2013 at 01:06

I've been to a Comic-Con courtesy of my eldest son. It was most enjoyable, and recommended to anyone so inclined. It's not just comics, but also games and TV shows of the Sci-fI genre. I met "Will Riker" (Jonathon Frakes) who is a great bloke. We taught him a little of ANZAC day. Now to the question.

The hotter, the better! I used to love a hamburger sold at the Noonamah servo (petrol station) that was called an "Old Sweetheart". They'd hand it over and snigger! One mouthful was enough to make Coke taste like tap water, gee, it was great!

What do you do with the likes of spiders, if you find one setting up home inside?


Nimuae - 21-8-2013 at 04:17

I am happy to share my home with spiders - I know what they eat - so, generally I leave them alone. I only move them if they are in my way - in the bath, for example, then I just pick them up and put them somewhere safe. Having been bitten by one last year I handle them with care!

marymary100 - 21-8-2013 at 06:04

LSemmens - 21-8-2013 at 09:04

Mostly, no, but once in a while something interesting will get me to open it, such as coupons.

waffler - 22-8-2013 at 00:55

Do you pay for precut firewood delivered, or do you collect and cut your own?


marymary100 - 24-8-2013 at 14:32

Firewood? Gas central heating here but my friend's husband (Tommy Three-Sheds) has a deal with a local landowner that he can cut up any fallen tree as long as he wears safety trousers and hauls the wood off site.


Do you like those masculine things like watching fights, matches etc?


LSemmens - 24-8-2013 at 14:43

I don't particularly like much in the way of sport at all, but I do like blokey things.......

Scotland - Australia is unaffordable atm


Do you visit zoos?


LSemmens - 27-8-2013 at 02:35

Occasionally, they are fun.

Would you rather see wild animals close up in cages, or in the wild?


waffler - 28-8-2013 at 10:55

in the wild

windows or linux


LSemmens - 28-8-2013 at 14:40

Windoze, but only 'cause I've invested too much time into windoze specific apps to run Linux full time. If I could convert thousands of lines of VBA code for Access into something useful in MySQL and similar in Excel and Werd (much easier, but still requires lots of massaging) then I'd be running Linux on most of my boxes.

Can you write code for the likes of Excel or Werd?

Yes, I have, and would again. I used to be a competent skater in my youth.

Nimuae - 10-11-2013 at 07:34

Its a toss up really,
I proposed to Mrs Bear at Manchester Airport as she arrived back from Spain, I had a 6 foot square banner saying Will You Marry Me, then in front of a couple of thousand people I went down on one knee.

On Boxing day 2006 we camped part way up Snowdon then the following morning in a snow storm I cooked her fish fingers over a Primus stove for Breakfast. :)


Do you get a thrill out of being on the hills in wild weather.

Do you allow Spiders to live in your home or is it "Exterminate!"?


marymary100 - 12-11-2013 at 23:29

Well as I don't live in Australia, I catch them in a glass then toss them outside.

Someone I know asked me to look over something she'd written and I said it was fine apart from her use of "i" for "I". She was annoyed that I picked up the error. My question is, do you resent the advice you get when you asked for it in the first place?


the bear - 13-11-2013 at 00:03

No, I need all the help I can get, ( my enlish is atrosush). :(

You are allowed to answer, just cause it's Q&A doesn't necessarily mean that the same person will answer again. As to the question, Dogs, provided they know their place.

Now, what was your question, O'Bear? ;)

Have you ever had a barber shave you?

No.

Lots!

If the world really was flat - would it still have oceans?


scholar - 1-9-2014 at 07:39

Yes. (Unless it were spinning like a spinning plate, which would mean our flat earth would lose its water over the outer edge.)

Bicycle tires--do you prefer the hard, narrow racing style, or the bigger ones that give more cushion to the ride?


marymary100 - 1-9-2014 at 16:23

I never ride a bike. I passed a group of bout 10 cyclists today on my way home and they seemed to have good sturdy tyres and lycra shorts. They were all rally slim as well.:D


Would you class yourself as passive/aggressive/assertive/shy and retiring or something else?


LSemmens - 2-9-2014 at 10:38

Assertive.

As to the question, what makes you think that, if the earth were flat, and it were spinning like a plate that the water would fall off the edge? After all, our world is round and is spinning like a top and nothing falls off it.
