Tracing Lines Wednesday Hodgepodge!!!!



Good Wednesday Morning everyone in Blogland!!!!!  Trust me that sounds much more cheery in my head then I am feeling.  I haven't gotten much sleep lately but that is another story.  Today we are joining up with Joyce again over at From This Side of the Pond for another edition of her Wednesday Hodgepodge.  So be sure to check her out and join in on the fun.  We love meeting new bloggers and friends.  Be sure to let me know you were here and then head on over to Joyce's site and join in the fun and link up.


1. Do you have an interest in learning about your family's heritage? Why or why not? If you know a little bit about your roots, share an interesting piece of trivia or a fun fact about someone who goes way back on your family tree.
---- I have always been interested because I want to know where I come from.   I have done some research on my mom's side since I didn't know anything about my dad's side for years.  Finally found my dad and my sister introduced me to the rest of the family.  Found out that we are linked back to the Cherokee Indianas as well as being related to Lady Godiva.  Oh I almost forgot, I have a copy of a land deed that was signed by George Washington himself that gave land to one of my ancestors.  However, when I search my dads side, I find nothing literally.  Not sure how that all works but Indiana is hard to find info on line for ancestory.

2. Branch Rickey, the baseball exec credited with signing Jackie Robinson, is quoted as saying-

"Luck is the residue of design."
Agree or disagree? Why?
--- I some what agree and disagree.  Some people work hard for things and when good things happen we call it achievement.  When people don't work for it and make no effort and seem to leech off of everyone and everything then we see their fortune as Luck.  In reality it isn't luck at all.  We all choose how to make things happen and when someone who is a leach seems to be lucky, in reality they are quite smart because they can get what they want without the others knowing what they did to get it or realize that they were being manipulated to giving those leaches exactly what they wanted.  

3. In the town where you currently reside, what's your favorite green space?
----- I honestly don't think I have one.  

4. Who is your favorite comedian?
---- Jeff Dunham by far.  I mean seriously have you seen him in person?  OMG me and the hubby went one year to the fair when he was here and we laughed so hard we almost wet ourselves.  It was the best time I have every had.



5. March is National Nutrition Month, and almost everyone needs to improve their diet in some way.  What about you? How can you improve your nutrition on a daily basis? Will you try?
---- OH where to start with this one.  I guess I could start by drinking less coffee and getting more water.  I seem to drink coffee 24/7 which I have tried to cut down but honestly I don't put much effort into it.  The next would have to be eating out everyday for lunch.  This one I WILL work on because we were just slapped with a $675 insurance bill since my husband no longer has insurance through his work.  Thanks OBAMA.....NOT!!!!!!

6. Which of these green expressions have you 'experienced' in recent weeks -green with envy, green thumb, green around the gills, or give the green light? Explain.
---Well it would have to be Green around the Gills for sure.  I have been extremely nauseous today and have been experiencing extreme nausea at night to the point I wake up having to run to the bathroom with dry heaves.  Not sure what is wrong....probably all the coffee I drink.

7. Where is one place you don't mind waiting? 
---- In the center of Disneyland for the Parade.  I am just a big kid when it comes to Disney of course I think we all are in a way.  Seriously who wouldn't mind waiting until this was over to get to your next ride.  I loved it and would go back just for the parade.



8.  Insert your own random thought here.
---- Well it has been a difficult couple of weeks around my house.  I found out that I have a 4 cm nodule on my thyroid and it requires a biopsy because all of my blood work and levels are normal.  So the doctor isn't sure what it is.  Then to add insult to injury, my husband finds out that his employer is no longer offering insurance at his work.   However, his boss was nice enough to arrange for an agent to come to the office and get them all started on an "INDIVIDUAL" policy.  My husband called and told me that the agent told him that "I HAVE TO be on MY OWN POLICY" because that is the law, uhhhh I called Bullshit on that one.  It isn't the law.  Besides I agreed not to take the insurance at my work for exchange of my pay.  So here it is 2 weeks before April when the insurance he has stops and the new one begins.  Just when I meet the deductible...lol.  Now we have to fork out $675 additional dollars that we already don't have for insurance.  Thanks alot OBAMA, you should be thrown out of the white house for this one.  Since you say everyone has to have insurance and it is "affordable" then employers are dropping left and right the benefits they provide because guess what?????????? IT'S NOT AFFORDABLE!!!!!!
   Ok Rant over.  I will save that for my own blog. :-)

Don't forget to let me know you were here and your thoughts and then link up with Joyce and join in with us.
