Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's one thing that's still the same about you as when you were young?

Well, I'm still a picky eater. I will say that I'm much better than I was when I was a kid, though. Life has found a way to get me to eat more than I used to.

2. What's more important-history or science? Why?

Hmm. Both are very important. History is important because if we don't study it and learn from it, we can be doomed to repeat the same mistakes. History shows us how the world has changed, how the species of our world have changed and adapted and evolved. How we as humans have evolved and learned.

Science is also important (and also a part of history) because without science, we can't learn about how everything works and why. We can't improve our livelihoods (like increasing our lifespans, medicine's, etc.). 

3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?

Refried beans. Best way to go. lol

4. What's something people come to your town to do?

Visit Shasta and/or Whiskeytown Lake, see Shasta Dam, Shasta Caverns, etc. Lots to see and do. We usually refrain from telling folks that's it's so hot around here in the Summer that the Devil himself wouldn't dream of visiting.

5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less.

When I worked at the vet lab. Snooze.

 6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?

Hmm. The Oscars.

7. What's one piece of advice you'd give a writer?

If it's what you love, don't give up.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Just wanted to send a thank you to all those from last week's Hodgepodge for the condolences regarding my Papa Dennis. I appreciate it. We are all doing okay, we have our moments of course, but we're doing okay. The important thing is that he is no longer suffering and that Heaven has a new angel to watch over us.  

The weather has been nice and cool here the last few days. I'm absolutely loving it. I've missed my hoodies. And my slippers. Almost time for them to make a full-time appearance.


  1. I have been to Shasta Caverns!!!! :)

    1. I have too, a long time ago. Would love to go again.

  2. So sorry to hear about your Papa Dennis.

    If you could some of that hot hot heat over to Scotland, I'd love some. I'm so cold over here!!!

    1. Thank you. If I had the power to transfer the temperature I would gladly spare some digits! Lol It would help keep us out of triple digit weather.

  3. Refried beans! Why didn't I think of that?

    Good advice for writers.

    Sorry to hear of your loss.

    1. Lol for me its one of few ways I will eat beans

  4. Oh boy....refried beans. My SIL is of Mexican decent, and she taught me how to make them from scratch...along with from scratch flour tortillas....mix that together and make a bean burrito that is out of this world good.

  5. Just answering #2 today. History is the story of the lives, the deeds, all that has went before us. Every day idiots with agendas rewrite more and more history, but we can save it by telling our children the truth- and for that, we need to learn it. Science has been dead ever since someone decided it was more important to develop the convenient-to-my-cause theory, THEN find observations that can be correlated to it- instead of observe-understand-develop the theory-test the theory which is what science is supposed to be.

  6. I think I'd only want the Oscars if my VIP pass included a fabulous dress and jewelry : )

  7. I think I told you before we lived in Bella Vista (outside Redding) many years we experienced Shasta Lake, Whiskeytown, etc. But I never went to the caverns! Hubby and I were just talking about the area the other day and we used Google Earth to zoom in and see if the home we lived in is still there, which it is not. ) :

    1. I'd love to go to the Caverns again. But if I remember right, there are a ton of stairs. lol


I love comments. Please leave one. :o)
