Springing into Hodgepodge...

1. Spring is in the air (at least in my neck of the woods) and the birds are singing...what's your favorite bird?
I don’t know if I really have a favorite. I love the little wrens. For the last 3 years a couple of wrens have made their nest in a birdhouse that we have on our porch. They sound so pretty when they are talking to each other. And after the little ones have hatched they sure can make a ruckus. We get an Indigo Bunting at times during the summer and they are beautiful and of course cardinals all year round.
2. Speaking of you tweet? If so tell us your screen name and we'll come flocking to your Twitter site. Even if you don't let's all pretend here that we do-in 140 characters or less, sum up your week so far.
No I do not tweet. Summary – Great church service. Busy week. Doctor’s check up & cardiologist. Keeping up w/ A-Z. Missing kid and grands. Enjoying life.

3. Its been reported recently that employers are not only viewing the facebook pages of potential hires but they're also requesting your facebook password to have a look at what you've kept from public view. What say you?
Sorry, there is a limit. I can understand to a certain extent them viewing the public facebook page but no one has a right to your password unless you give it to them.

4. It's April and you know what that means-Major League Baseball is back in action. What's your favorite baseball movie? If that's too hard, what's your favorite sports themed movie?
My favorite is “Field of Dreams” build it they will come! I love that movie! Sport’s themed would be “Blindside.” If you have not seen that one you need too!

5. Something else this season brings-asparagus. Yes please or no thanks? If it's yes please what's your favorite way to have it prepared?
No thanks… actually I have only tried it once or twice and it was okay.  I think my SIL  steamed it and it was pretty good.

6. What drives you? (Don't you love how I sandwiched that one in between asparagus and jugglers???)
I think loving life! God has given us so much how can we not be driven!

7. April 18th is International Jugglers Day...can you juggle?
If we are talking throwing things up in the air and catching them - not so much. I guess it depends on what you’re juggling. I always have several things going on at the same time so I guess that is a form of juggling. Lol.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I love this time of year! Nothing like Spring and new beginnings and fresh starts. I get so excited with the flowers blooming and the birds singing. A perfect time to enjoy what God has given us!

“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”      Genesis 1:31a

  1. "Blindside: is definitely one of my all-time favorite movies, too! Have a wonderful day!

  2. I love the Iris-they're one of my favorites. I guess I can juggle in the figurative sense : )

    That bunting is beautiful! We saw some interesing birds in the Hong Kong bird market. Eventually I'll get to writing about Hong Kong!

  3. i forgot about the blind side! definitely my favorite sports movie.

  4. What a cute little bird, colorful birds are not very common where I live now and I can't wait to finish moving so that I can start to bird watch a little.

  5. once in a blue moon, meaning twice in the last 15 years I have seen a indigo bunting here in our backyard. They are just absolutely beautiful birds.

  6. What a pretty little bird. Field of Dreams is mine too and I was thinking of telling Joyce that if she does football mine would be The Blindside but then I didn't put it down. We like the same movies :) Well maybe you should try asparagus in the oven, it is really good. Enjoy Spring!
