        1. What was the last movie you saw? Was it good?

        "Zero Dark Thirty" I do not think I fully understood it. The film is a bit long-winded, and I feel to sleep during part of it.

        2. What was the last thing you bought at the store?
        A Wall-Mart knock brand of Glade air fashioner.

        3. What is your favorite Christmas song?
        Maybe 'Silent Night"

        4. Do you have a holiday family tradition?
        The family gets together every Christmas. We have a big dinner, and attend church. The kids have their toys on Christmas day. I have always tried to make Christmas is holy day, yet my grand-daughter thinks it is a holiday.
        Remember, I once said culture is three generations deep?

        5. What is your favorite vegetable?
        All the green leafy vegetables. As well, the small green peas, and I like Okra, not fried. I love tomatoes too

        6. What was the last sale item you bought?
        The Blu-ray of the movie I saw. There is another, "The Help" and I have to say it really was that way once!

        7. Why did the chicken cross the road? ( "To get to the other side" replies not accepted.)
        I may have been chasing it with a hatchet.

        8. What is your favorite television show of all time?
        Probably a news show. There was a time I liked Steve Allen and Carson. There was a time I liked some of the early sit-cons.

        9. If you could bring any former style back in to fashion, what would it be?
        Oh, well, here goes. I liked the clothes style of the 1950s. Some of the 80s fashions were nice too.

        10. Who is your hero and why? (Somebody besides Jesus.)
        My husband because he impacted my life is a very good way.
        So, what?

        believe it!

          Muk Luks

          7. Why did the chicken cross the road? ( "To get to the other side" replies not accepted.)

          9. If you could bring any former style back in to fashion, what would it be?
          Gouchos

          10. Who is your hero and why? (Somebody besides Jesus.)
          My husband. He gets up for work to support our family five days a week (sometimes six) and never complains about having to do so.
          2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

          Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

            We each bring an inexpensive gift, put them all under tree, and we play a fun game where we draw numbers, and then each pick one from under the tree, open it, and then can keep it, or forcibly trade it for one someone else has already opened. It's a riot, with my family.

            The original "Connections" series back in the early 80s was pretty spectacular.

            I think we should all dress comfortably. Good looking people look good in anything, and the rest of us just are what we are, regardless. So lets stop wasting money chasing fashion.

            Anyone who chooses love and peace over selfishness and vengeance is a hero, to me. I have known quite a few folks in my life that I have seen do this, when it was difficult for them to do. And they are all heroes in my book!

                  1. The Martian- As a mechanical engineer in the aerosapce industry I LOVED the film of course. The engineering in the film was pretty accurate also. Matt Damon did a great job as an astronaut marooned on Mars.





                  2. Last night I bought a slice of cheese pizza and a blackberry Izze drink at a place called Z-Pizza.


                  3. When I think of Christmas I think of this song.

                  .



                  4. We don't really have a Christmas tradtition other than eat lots of food!


                  5. My favorite vegetable is broccoli.

                  .



                  6. I bought a pair of Shimano Mt-540 clippless pedals for $37.99. The regular price at REI was $79.99.




                  7. Being a hardworing conservative, chicken was going to work.


                  8. The original Star Trek is my favorite TV show of all time.




                  9. Hmmm...I like those cool 1940's stylish suits.






                  10. I really don't have a "hero". I don't believe in hero worship. But there are a few historical figures I do admire. Probably the one I admire most is Jackie Robinson. He fought against racial biogtry from all sides, not just white racists. He had a famous public feud with Malcolm X, telling him that his black separatist views were wrong. Everyone knows about Robinson's baseball career but he accomplished quite a bit after he retired from baseball as well. He became a corporate executive, opened a bank in Harlem to give black people fair loans, and he would sent chastizing telegrams and letters to Presidents when Robinson felt they weren't doing enough about the racial problems in America. He certainly wasn't perfect but he had courage and strength which stemmed from his Christian beliefs.

                          9. If you could bring any former style back in to fashion, what would it be?
                          I'm not real big on fashion. I have my own style.
                          10. Who is your hero and why? (Somebody besides Jesus.)
                          My daughter was my hero because she was an example of overcoming many things that challenged her, not giving up, while always thinking of others and wanting to helping them.
                          Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness.
                          I am convinced that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
                          All things work together for good to them that love God.
