1. What would you do if you found a pot of gold? Let's pretend this pot of gold is worth exactly $1500 (which would actually be more like a cup of gold at current values). Anyway, let's also pretend you have to spend it as opposed to making a donation someplace. Now tell me what you would do with that
cup pot of gold?
Buy the flute I have my eye on.
2. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form?
When the boys were little, I used to make their milk green. Last year I made Slow Cooker Old World Corned Beef & Vegetables. CH & I topped it off with a Nutty Irishman. This year I'm making the Corned Beef again (it was really good) and am making some Frosted Irish Cream Brownies. We like to do a lot of eating in the small town.
3. Have you been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug? What spring cleaning job most needs doing at your house? What spring cleaning job are you most dreading?
Ha! That is hilarious. It's spring break and I have no thoughts of spring cleaning. It'll be there tomorrow.
4. lime-shamrock-sage-forest...your favorite shade of green?
Sage. To me it's very calming.
5. Thomas Jefferson once said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." So...do you believe in luck or do you believe we make our own luck?
I'm not so sure I believe in luck. I think everything happens for a reason.
6. Monday (3/14) was Pi Day. Get it? Pi =3.14. Those math types are so clever aren't they? Since I'm not one of them tell me what's your favorite piE (the edible kind).
I do love a good pecan pie. There was a restaurant in the town in Ga. where we lived that made "Robert Redford Pie". I don't remember what was in it, but it was TO.DIE.FOR. They also had a good Praline Pie. There was another place in town that had a really good Peanut Butter Pie. I guess I don't really have a favorite.
7. That same date (3/14) happens to be the birthdate of the late physicist Albert Einstein. I bet he knew the value of Pi. So...what do you think is more important and or valuable in life... intelligence or common sense?
I've known people who are really intelligent that don't have a lot of common sense. And, I know some people who have a lot of common sense who aren't that intelligent. I'd say it's a draw.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
YS got back on Sunday from a weekend band trip to St. Louis. They marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. I asked YS if all the fundraising was worth it, and he said it would've been if they had had enough time to do a few more things. The band director wants to start doing a big trip every other year, so the next trip will be YS' senior year (GULP!). This year, most of the kids had most of their trip paid for through fundraising, which was an awesome thing! YS already has over $300 credit for the big trip.
During the off years, the director wants to take just the seniors on a local weekend trip. I think that's an excellent idea as a send-off and thank you for their service and dedication to the band. Band kids are the BEST!
