Questions Presented and Responses

1. Favourite place to visit?  Thailand

2. Describe life in three words.  Precious and fleeting.

3. Describe love in three words.  A big deal.

4. Choose one, loyalty, sympathy, superiority or equality, and why?  Equality because that is the natural order of things.

5. If someone is showing ego then what will you do?  Probably nothing as long as it isn’t super obnoxious.  We all have egos from time to time.

10. What is your favourite colour, tell about it.  Green.  I don’t know why it is my favorite – maybe because it is the color of money (US), ha ha.

My Nominees

I have taken part in a couple of blog awards.  Of all the blogs I’ve nominated less than 10% respond.  Maybe it was something I said, 😒 or people just have other things to do.  In any event, other than the blogs that are nominated repeatedly, it is hard to know which of the great blogs I follow might be tickled at a nomination.  Therefore, anyone who reads this post is hereby nominated and invited to participate.  Have fun!
