Wednesday Hodgepodge

Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge.  I am linking up again this week with Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond.  So feel free to join in.  We all love to meet new people and see how many friends we can make.  Joyce has been doing this for some time now and reading all the different blogs that participates is great.  Not to mention it is a great way to make friends but also to find new people to follow and to follow you as well.  So be sure to leave some blog lovin’ when you're done reading and be sure to visit and follow as many people as you can.  We are all looking to grow our audiences.

1. When did you last have to interact, either by phone or in person, with someone in a government run agency? On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the experience? (10 being fabulous and 1 being pass the Tylenol)

---- It unfortunately the IRS and I would have to say even though we pay them monthly the gentleman on the phone was extremely helpful and cooperative.  I would have to rate him a 10 on customer service but over all I would rate the IRS a 1.

2. The current governor of Wisconsin is considering a run for President next time around. Walker attended Marquette University, but never graduated. In terms ofany candidate running for the office of President (not asking here if you agree or disagree with Scott Walker's politics) would the lack of a college degree influence your vote or no? Would that be a factor in your support of any candidate running for public office, even a role less weighty than President?
---- I honestly don't think that it would affect my vote at all.  I personally have 2 college degrees and cannot get a job in my field because I don't have experience.  I feel that experience is more important than any piece of paper that you pay 10’s of thousands to get just to put on your wall and be another piece of paper.
3. When did you last visit a place or site named for George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, and what was that place or site?

---- I went to Washington D.C. in 2006 with my ex.  We toured all of the monuments that we could get into and I absolutely loved it.  It is weird because when I was in high school I hated history but now that I am older I find that it is interesting.

4. February 16th was President's Day in the US, but did you know it was also National Almond Day? I didn't think so : ) Do you like almonds? If so, what's a food/dish/recipe you enjoy that contains almonds?

---- I did not know that it was National Almond Day which is interesting.  It was also my late daughters 26th birthday.  As for liking them only if they are in a Hershey bar.  That is the only way that I can eat them.

5.The television program Saturday Night Live celebrated it's 40th anniversary this past weekend. Were/are you a fan of the show? If so what has been your favorite (or one of your favorite) skits, sayings, or characters that came out of the program?
----I haven't watched this show in years.  I used to love watching it for the Rosanna Rosanna Danna skit.  I think that is the only part that I actually liked.
6. Anything purple within ten feet of you? What is it?
---- Yes actually, it is my All Day Organizer bag from ThirtyOne.  I love this bag and I take it with me almost daily.

7. Back in December I asked you to submit a question for a future HP as part of a giveaway I was hosting. I grabbed this one from those entries, submitted by Zoanna who blogs over at Penchant for Pens. Thanks Zoanna!

She asks, "How often do you make your bed, and how do you like to make it-pull the covers all the way up over the pillows, tuck the covers in around the pillows, or place all the pillows on top of the covers?"
---- I make my bed every morning.  I pull the covers up to my pillow and then throw my pillows on top of them.  I don't know why I do this but I make it a habit.  It makes me feel as if my room is more inviting with the bed made and there is just something about pulling down the covers and crawling under them when it is bed time.  It is so relaxing.
8. Insert your own random thought here. 

---- Yesterday was my daughters Heavenly 26th Birthday and of all days it snowed about 10 inches here in Louisville.  I choose to look at it as her way of saying “don't be sad mommy, I am fine and you are too”.  The one thing that I love the most about winter is being able to see pure white fluffy snow which seems to make the world all new and mysterious and wonderful again.  I miss my daughter every single minute of every single day but yesterday wasn't a bad day after all.  Rather you believe in messages from the other side, angels, ghost, divine intervention or spirits is totally your choice.  I choose to believe in all of them because after all if I didn't then I couldn’t believe in GOD.  HE is after all the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost and without him the world and my life wouldn't exist.  Even though I have had to deal with the unbelievable pain of losing a child I know that he has her up in Heaven and she is happy, healthy, forever you and with her Nana.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave your comments below for I always love meeting and hearing from new readers.  Would love to see your answers as well so again, link up to Joyce’s blog after you have copied the questions and answered them and join in on the fun.  Hope you have a great Wednesday and you are staying safe and warm if you are in this winter blast that we are dealing with here.
