Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Share one way you think the world has changed for the better since you were a kid?
Internet.  And cell phones.  What did we do without these 2 things?

2. How 'bout one way it's changed for the worse?
Internet.  And cell phones.  Kids would know how to act like kids if they didn't have these things!

3. Starlight, starfish, starling, Starbucks...your favorite 'star'?
Is there any reason to ask?  Starbucks, of course!  BUT, if we're camping, there's nothing like looking up and seeing the stars on a clear night.  (Especially if you're in The Keys!)

4. Name a song that's overplayed, but you love it anyway.
Call Me Maybe.  Maybe I don't "love" it, but it does get me (& CH) singing.

5. When did you last have home made ice cream? Your latest favorite flavor?
When we went camping 3 weeks ago, one of the ladies in our camping group made was amazing!

6. What do you think is the best way to inspire or motivate people?
Positive words and pats on the back.

7. When was the last time you were without power?
You know, I don't even remember.  When the power goes out at school, we're hoping and praying that it stays out so we can go home.  But, that never happens; it's never out for long.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
~ CH & I saw "Red 2" Saturday.  I thought it was just as good as the first one, if not better.  Mary-Louise Parker's character reminds me so much of MS' girlfriend: sweet, but a little devious, and always up for adventure!  I even think she looks a bit like her.
~ I'm almost through with my Germany recap:  Thursday & Friday are the posts that were really difficult to get through because of their content.  Monday will be the recap of the recap!  I'll probably just do one (or maybe a couple more) post for Copenhagen.
~  I saw this clip in an inservice the other day.  Pretty cute! (and it goes pretty well with the whole "motivational" theme that Joyce seems to have used this week!)


  1. Homemade ice cream while camping? Wow!

  2. Homemade ice cream while camping? Wow!

  3. Now I'm going to be singing Call Me Maybe so thanks for that : ) Enjoy your day!

  4. Now I have the song stuck in my head. I will be singing it all day. Homemade ice cream...vanilla...ummmm....I love chocolate too. Have a great day. We were coming to Knoxville this weekend...but a fellow firefighter died last night and we will be staying home to attend his funeral.

  5. Okay...I love how you combined and repeated the 2nd and 1st one. So true, so very true!!!

  6. I agree, homemade ice cream while camping is pretty awesome, and I don't even eat it :)

    I agree, kids would be more like kids without today's technology. They'll never know what they're missing.

  7. Yes, internet and cell phones cover both the good and the bad. And for me the #1 is starfish. I love them!

  8. OK... we answered the first 3 questions the same :)

    I so badly want to go see Red 2 - I LOVED the first one so much!!!! All the characters were great! Want to see the addition of Catherine Zeta Jones :)

  9. I agree about the technology--I do love the internet! And, as I said to Sandie, I've never had homemade ice cream so I'm jealous!

  10. One way the world is worse today? Way to much information and realty shows!

  11. I do love homemade ice cream but I haven't had it since I was a kid. Love your #s 1 and 2. :)

  12. We made homemade ice cream when I was at summer day camp. It was super good! :)
    I agree on #2! People's politeness have gone down over the years. ;/

  13. Hi, I have never made ice cream while camping. That must have been challenging. I love the kid president, so cute. Thanks for sharing your hodge podge this week. Nice meeting you too.

  14. So true, same answer for 1 & 2. Yes the stars are amazing when your in the middle of nowhere. I want someone to make me ice cream, way to go! We really enjoyed Red 2. Have a great day.
