Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. Are we always responsible for our actions? Are there any exceptions?

Yes, I think so.   I guess if you were being forced to do something at gunpoint there may be exceptions.

2.  Has anyone from your home town become famous?

My actual hometown, not that I know of.  But there are many famous people from Long Island.  Billy Joel and Mariah Carey come to mind.

3. January was National Slow Cooker month. Do you own a slow cooker/crock pot? Did you use it last month? What's a favorite dish you make using a slow cooker or crock pot?

Yes, I own a crock pot and I used it last month to keep chili warm for lunch at church.  My favorite dish has to be pot roast.  I just salt and pepper a roast, place it ontop of sliced onions and add 1/2 cup of water.

4. How do you feel about private companies collecting data about you?

I don't like it, but I think it is increasing.

5. The Games of the 2014 Winter Olympics kick off with their opening ceremony this coming Friday....will you be watching? Which Winter Olympic event would you most like to see in person? Have you ever been to Russia? Any desire to go, Olympics or otherwise?

I'll try to watch.  I would love to see figure skating in person since that is my favorite winter sport to watch.   No, I've never been to Russia.  I don't have any desire to go there.

6. Share a good or bad sports related memory from your childhood or teen years.

I was more into dance than sports as a kid.  I did play softball for a short while.  I did pretty well in gym class.  I did a lot of sit-ups in one minute.  Boy, I should have stuck with that ;)

7. What's a must have song for you on a work out play list? If you don't work out, run, swim, bike, walk, or anything else that could be construed as 'exercise', then what's a song that movtivates you to at least get up off the couch?

Thanks for the reminder that I need to get back to working out.  While watching the Superbowl, I got off the couch when Bruno Mars starting singing.  I tried to dance with my kids but they weren't interested.  They were too busy laughing!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I woke this morning to the tinging sound of freezing rain hitting my window.  It is a mess out there.  It looks like we got a few more inches of snow topped with ice.  That will count for my workout today :)


  1. We got about a foot of snow, but the ice is raining down now. I could do without the ice! I love Bruno Mars too...I thought he did a great job. Sit-ups-ha! So true! I used to take gymnastics, and if you don't keep up with flexibility training you lose it quick. Mine is long gone : )

  2. I'm so sick of the snow & ice & cold & WINTER! BLAH!
    Good for you for getting your groove on to Bruno Mars :)

  3. Freezing rain is never a good thing! I'm a big fan of Billy his music!

  4. Sit-ups!! Oh how well I remember those and glad I don't have to do them anymore. Our answers are so similar. Pot roast, figure skating, and no desire to go to Russia. Don't our kids have a strange sense of humor?

    Stay warm.

  5. Stay safe in that nasty weather! Hope you don't have to go out! I actually think dancing qualifies as a sport, for goodness sake!! I enjoyed your answers! It was yet another good Hodgepodge!

  6. Oh those Jr. High PE days were a torture to me! Especially when they'd grade you for something. I mean how many people can climb a rope? They were a bit critical but I was good at sit-ups and running the mile. They were my favorite kind of days! :) I think we all agree on #1!

  7. Your pot roast sounds yummy....
    I enjoy watching the Olympics and will be taping the evening highlight shows.
