Good morning or afternoon depending on when you are reading this.  Today is another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge brought to you by Joyce from From This Side of the Pond.  So visit her site, get a copy of the questions and then link back up with her.  Also please let me know you stopped by.  I love to hear from new and veteran bloggers.

So without further ado here we go.......

1.What makes love last?
----  I think alot of things come into play.  One being compassionate, two being honest, three laughter.  All of these things are essential in having a long and strong relationship.  I couldn't tell you one specific thing because there are tons that goes into it.  But I think these 3 are a pretty good start.

2. The Beatles made their US debut fifty years ago this week. Are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite Beatles tune?
----  I don't follow them at all but I will listen to them if they are on the radio.

3. Valentine's Day-your thoughts? Do you celebrate in any way? Do anything special for the people you love? Expect anything special from the people who love you? 
---- I don't really celebrate Valentines day.  I guess it is because all of my babies are now grown.  However, I do get my husband a card and buy my kids a Hershey Kiss.  Other then that I don't do much of anything.  As far as expecting anything...lol...I am lucky if my husband remembers my birthday.

4. Steak or burger...you have to choose. Now that that's settled, how do you like it? 
----Steak without a doubt.  As a matter of fact I am going to have a steak dinner tonight at Outback along with a bloomin' onion.  I love my steak medium rare with lots of flavor.

5. The Hodgepodge lands on the birthdate (February 12th) of Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America. Lincoln is quoted as saying,'Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test his character give him power.'  Do you agree? Why or why not?
----I would agree completely.  Men can be humble unless they have power, rather it be power tools, a power car, or office power.  They all seem to let it go to their head and totally forget that it is the women that is really in power.  I guess that is why they call cars..."she".  Just saying.

6. Honest Abe's image is featured on the US penny (1 cent coin) so I'm wondering...what do you do with your pennies (or your country's equivalent)?  It's been suggested the US stop making the penny, and two bills have been introduced proposing just that, but neither were approved. What say you?
----- I save my pennies and then eventually cash them out.  Mostly my husband keeps them so he can use it as his "special" money.  Which is fine with me because that is less money out of the house money.

7.  Do you think pop culture deserves serious study?
-----  I would say no.  Because everything constantly changes.  I think they can use that time and money on a more productive study such as curing cancer or another disease.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
----  This weekend has been hell for me.  Friday night I spent it in the ER because apparently I have a  nodule on my thyroid. I had to reschedule my daughters New Mommy and Me class because I was so exhausted and then Saturday I had a 6 hour event on my feet and Sunday rolls around and I have to take my daughter to the ER because she is pregnant and has kidney stones.  After being there for 7 hrs they decide to admit her.  When leaving the hospital, it started snowing and I twisted my ankle.  So I am ready for just some relaxation and hoping that my daughter gets better.
