No but for enough money, I will tell you.
Do you know a question that I can ask next?
I will ask one if OK by you Shirley ....and I only thought of this while cleaning out my pantry this morning
The Question is ...and it’s proberly a stupid question....but it’s a subject that’s seen on the nightly news quite a bit
beacuse of the obesity rates in our country
I rarely use or buy sugar ..the last 1 kg pack I bought was about this time of the year ...last year ...I stuck the receipt to it just to remind myself just how much sugar we actually use, it’s obivious we don’t use much .
Do you use or buy much sugar ?
I don't have any sugar in the house.. My dear wife is a diabetic and sugar is a no-no..
For the past 15 years, I use SPLENDA which is sugar with the carbs removed.. it is perfect for diabetic as it doesn't increase her blood sugar at all.. It tastes and is used the same as sugar..
Do you like to have a dessert after a main meal ???
I usually make either a S/F pudding or a S/F jello..
Frozen fruit with heavy cream..
PS....... I thought we had the option of asking a question and also giving our answer as well....
Yes indeed everyone has that option Steve...
No I rarely have pudding or dessert after a meal unless I'm eating out then I might have a brownie with ice cream.
I did have some custard and caramel shortbread the other night, but that's very rare...
Do you believe the Bible story of Noah and the Ark ?
Wow, that's a touchy question, Holly. I used to believe that every word of the Bible was literally true. Now I have very grave doubts. It was told by word of mouth down through the generations. Each teller told it from his perspective. I'm sure it was meant to be correct but, no, I don't believe the Noah and the Ark story. Some event might have happened, maybe a flood. But I don't believe that the whole Earth was flooded and the only survivors were Noah and his family.
For example, at a recent family gathering, we talked of things that happened when we were growing up. Some of the things my siblings talked about were very different from the way I remember them. We shared the same childhood and remember things quite differently. How, then, can we believe a story that has been told and retold so many times?
If I can remember, a few years ago, they found the remains of Noah's ark on a mountain top somewhere in Greece.. I don't remember if it was ever proven to be legit or not..
They also found some of the Dead Sea Scrolls in a cave some years ago and they have proven them to be legit..
As far as some of the stories goes, well I do have an imagination, but some of them are just a bit far fetched..
Now, I don't have another question at this moment because I am very tired and it is way past my bedtime, so I will have to repeat the same question which is a good one anyway....
I believe the remains of the so called ark was found on MT Ararat in turkey ..but after studies by geologists they found that MT Ararat had been created and built on dry and long after the floods which were supposed to have been why the ark was built....so no I don't believe there was a Man who saved animals 2 by 2... not to say there wasn't a monk or a religious guy who built a boat and saved his own family and pets during the floods ( which have been proven to have happened)...but I suspect ''Noah'' wasn't the only one to do it... it may have been that his boat was the biggest which is why it was mentioned in the Monks scrolls which became the Bible eventually...
Moving on from such a serious topic....
Do you have, or would you ever consider paying for a cleaner in your home, to save you having to do all the housework yourself?
Yes, we have a cleaning lady that comes to our house every other Tuesday from 1:00 to 5:00pm to clean the house.. she doesn't do laundry or dishes or linen changing on the bed.. Just vacuuming, floors, bathrooms, kitchen, and dusting all over as well as just cleaning up where it is needed.. Both my wife and myself have had major operations lately and this is a great help to us.. What the cost is doesn't bother us one bit, as the work done by her is something we would have problems with..
When you go to bed, do you have a light in the bedroom or is it perfectly dark ??
I have a night light in the bedroom so when we get up during the night to go to the potty, we don't trip over something..
I don't have lights on but my neighbor across the road has one of those big area lights that lights my bedroom enough so that I can see pretty well. I have an area light that lights up the rest of the house.
It is getting dark here later by the day. It's after 6:00 and it's just getting dark. What time does it get dark at your house?
Actually it gets dark when we turn the lights off...
About going to bed..
Are you an early to bed person or are you a night owl ???
We don't go to bed much before 2:00am if not later, however we don't get up till almost noon...
It gets dark here about 5.30pm...thank goodness because last month it was dark at 4.30pm... roll on summer when it doesn't get dark 'till 10pm...
I am a Night owl by nature...however I'm also an early riser, I haven't stayed in bed until Noon since I was a teen...
It's Valentines day today...have you celebrated it...do you still...or are you not bothered about it any more.. ?
My oldest son usually brings me yellow roses but this year he was sick with something like the flu. So he just called me. My younger son gives me a card.
Do you have a hobby?
Yes I take photos..as best as I can...
What's your hobby.... ?
Hosting and feeding birds and taking pictures of them.
Do you go to the movies?
No... I don't go to the movies because there isn't a movie house within a 2 hour drive from my house...
Do you like going to local plays put on my local players groups..
We used to belong to our local players group in Massey, but they closed up and don't exist anymore..
I was in 6 plays they put on some years ago and most of them were dinner Theatre plays..
No I have to admit having worked in the professional entertainment world ..I'm not too keen on provincial theatre.. sorry Steve, I bet you miss your time in the theatre tho'...
Are you a member of any Social seniors group in real life...?
Boy do I ever miss going on stage and acting..
The last play I was in, I played the village idiot and thoroughly enjoyed my comedy role.. They gave me a write-up and picture in the local newspaper saying Steve was hilarious.. Learning the lines was something else but today, I don't think I could do it again......
Yes, we belong to the Seniors Club in Espanola which is a 30 minute drive from our house.. We have a potluck supper on the third Monday of every month.. Activities every day including a singing choir that entertains at certain events..
We don't attend there very often since my wife (Annmarie) had her ankle replacement and before that my shoulder, but we do go to the potluck suppers to meet the gang..
Do you do much shopping on the internet??
Lately I have been doing a lot of buying on Amazon, Wallmart, New chick, Brag gear, and a few other sites.. Prices are quite good with free delivery to our door within only days..
I don't do a lot of shopping at all. My needs are few. I do a lot of my Christmas shopping online. I just ordered Miki's flea and tick meds from CanadaPetCare.com. They are less expensive there and they ship free.
Did you have a favorite teacher?
Yes My English teacher in senior High, she was American from SC or NC can't remember which but I know it was the Carolinas , , teaching English in Scotland... she was the kindest teacher ever.. and I still remember her southern Drawl when she said my Name... ( which has 3 syllables ) lol
@Holly Saunders , when she said it , it probably had six syllables. When we say Ann, it comes out as Ay-yann.
I did have a favorite teacher. It's too long a story to tell here but she inspired me in many ways. She was my 8th grade teacher and I was painfully shy.
Who is the politician you most trust?
Trust a politician ???? you must be joking....
There's a story where a child asks the father "how come there are no more circuses" ...
The father answers that all the clowns became politicians...
In order not to be the only one that feels that way, I will repeat the same question..
Who is the politician you trust ???
You are so right lol... it was probably 6 syllables or more..she was such a sweet lady one of the very few nice people in my childhood, I'll never forget her..
Maybe that was not such a good question.
If you could paint, what would you paint first?
Most likely my living room and then the kitchen......
I used to paint, but now, I will leave it to the professionals..
Do you have a headboard on your bed ??
We never had one and just recently I ordered a fancy, metal headboard and you wouldn't believe what a difference it makes in the appearance of the bedroom..
If I could Paint ( and I used to be able to a little I still have my easel)...I would probably paint portraits of my grandfurkids..but I'm not that good
Yes I have a headboard. up until recently I had a wooden sleigh bed , so a a really nice wooden bedhead... I just bought a new bed and storage divan just a few weeks ago so now I have a really soft leather headboard..
When you were a child what were your daily chores to do to help out at home... and did you like or hate them ?
