    Actually, we share the cooking, @Ruby Begonia . If I feel like cooking something, then I do. If Bobby feels like cooking something then he cooks. If neither one of us wants to cook, then we just make a sandwich, or something simple for dinner.
    My favorite things to make are foods that I have made for years, and enjoyed, although I do sometimes try new recipes and ideas and learn something new that we like.
    I like pan-fried chicken, or roast chicken with stuffing, most fish or seafoods, and just about all vegetables.
    Bobby loves pork, so I make a roast or bbq ribs , or just a pot of beans and ham hocks.
    Robin loves my potato salad, so if she is coming over to eat with us, I usually make potato salad for her.
    I like making pizza, and we put "everything" on it, including anchovies. Another favorite is eggplant Parmesan, so actually, we have a variety of foods that we eat and enjoy.
    Since Bobby is an expert chef, and I am just your basic housewife-cook; at first I was afraid to try and cook for Bobby, but he is just the best person ever, eats whatever I make, and never, ever grumbles.

    Since I don't believe in aliens, this is a difficult question for me to answer, @Ina I. Wonder .
    My belief is that the Bible is the Word of God, and that He created the earth. There is nothing that I have seen in the Bible that alludes to there being any kind of space aliens.

    I think that some of the things that were carved by the world's early civilizations that appear to be depicting ancient aliens were probably from the time when the Nephilim were here on the earth. Since they were very advanced, they would have appeared as aliens to the early people here on earth.
    We are warned about demons, and that they are evil beings, so if that is what people think are aliens, then I have no desire to speak to one of those at all, and I avoid anything that I think might not have come from God.

    The other heavenly beings we are told about that I do believe in, are angels, which are messengers from God, and also here to protect us. If an angel came to talk to me, then I would certainly want to learn everything that they wanted to tell me.
    I read a wonderful book many years ago, called "Angels on Assignment", by Pastor Roland Buck. His brother , Walter Buck, was the pastor at the Spokane Assembly where I was going to church at the time.
    It is an incredibly interesting book about Pastor Buck and his visits from the angels. I think that you would enjoy reading it, too.

    Thank you @Yvonne Smith . I was really wondering more about things like the possibility of a Yeti, the Lock Ness monster, or other such beings that we have read about. I'm not a space thinking type of person. I'm still wondering about here on earth. I just couldn't think of a generic word other than alien. :rolleyes:

    Those are things that fascinate me, too, Ina ! I spend a lot of time reading about things like the Yeti, and legends like the Loch Ness Monster, dinosaurs, and other creatures thought to be long extinct, or just a myth in the first place.
    I am still looking for the answer to the question of what they truly are, why and when they were created, and whether there might not still be some in existance in the earth today.
    There is some interesting evidence to support that the giant lizards that we now call dinosaurs (which only means "terrible lizards") actually existed up until at least 1,000 years ago, and probably walked the earth at the same time as early mankind.
    The description in the Bible certtainly sounds like it could be a dinosaur !
    Anyway, there are some other interesting ancient writings that are not in the Bible; but talk about the same timeframe as the Creation Story in the Bible.
    I am (slowly) reading a book that has these ancient writings in it, and comparing that with what other information I can find about things like pterodactyls, dinosaurs, and Yeti still existing; but in places where humans don't go and don't see them.
    If you are interested, I am glad to share with you the book that I am reading, and some of the other information as well.

    @Yvonne Smith , yes that does interest me, and I would like to read about what you are talking of. I too thrink there are still many mysteries in this world.

    But if you could understand and speak to one of those beings, what would you want to learn from or ask it?

    I am mulling this one over, @Babs Hunt . I can see my weaknesses much easier than finding strengths, I guess.
    I am a loyal person, I am honest, and I try to think things through before making a decision. I am thrifty, and can make a budget stretch pretty good, and I seldom buy something on impulse, unless there is a good reason to do so.
    Weaknesses that give me the most problems are that I don't have a lot of confidence or courage. I am afraid to take chances, and panic when I shouldn't.
    Most of the time, I am not very motivated, but once I am , I will usually keep on trying until I get it done.
    I tend to be optimistic, which I also see as a good attribute. I am not a complainer.

    @Yvonne Smith You and Bobby seem like such a well blended couple on this Forum...how are you two alike and how are you different from each other? I'd also like to know how you two met and how long y'all have been together.

    @Babs Hunt , that answer could call for a whole novel to answer; but I will try to stick to the Readers Digest Condensed Version of the story.
    We actually are a well-blended couple, and have some great similarities, plus enough direct-opposites to keep life interesting for us.
    I have enough idiosyncrasies that Bobby is probably never bored, but he takes them all in stride.
    He is the stability that I have not had in my life for many years.
    Bobby is the kindest and gentlest of men, and it is the first time that I have not lived in the perpetual world of fear that abused people live in, and I value that more than I can possibly express.

    Our story is an online romance that worked out right.
    We started chatting on a Christian website, and that led to emails. Bobby was the director of a small rescue mission in Charlotte NC, and couldn't get away to come and see me.
    I was between jobs, and flew out to meet him.
    It was "love at first sight" or close to that, I stayed, helped at the mission, we got married. That was about 15 years ago, and we have been together ever since.
