Hodgepodge Like a Lion

1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true where you live?

In Oklahoma you can have a lion and a lamb day all in 24 hours. So the saying works just about anytime of year.

2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most?

Oh there are so many. My first real boss was an English professor and he taught me so much. I really don't like erroneously place commas.

3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you?

A realist.

4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month?

Being out of the office for two straight weeks. Between a vacation and then as soon as we return going on a work trip the pile of paper and emails waiting for me will be intense.

5. An ongoing debate around you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording?

You should dust first then vacuum. And of the two I don't mind vacuuming. Don't you wonder why there are two u's in vacuum and no other word?

6. According to, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are-Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?

From this list I've taken pics of Cinderella's Castle, Space Needle, Bellagio Fountain and the Lincoln Memorial.
Bellagio Fountains

Since I've never been to New York City that would be tops on my list.

7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie?

I've seen the movie many times. Remember it used to come once a year. I'm not a huge fan of the movie but I like it better than Wizard of Oz.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Whitney graduates college in two months! So proud of how hard she has worked and how hard she is looking for a job. Applying for work is hard business.


  1. That is so true about applying for work! Best of luck to her too in her job search! I agree, dust first, then vacuum; vacuum would look funny with only one "u" in it, wouldn't it?


  2. National Grammar Day... I thought it said National Gramma day... I thought, ahh, that's sweet... wait, what? :) haha

  3. I agree...dust first and then vacuum. You're right. Why does it have two U's? :)

    Hope you get caught up quickly. Sometimes when I come back from vacation, I wonder if it's really worth it. But yes, it is. We all need a break sometimes.

  4. Good luck to your daughter in her job hunt! I live near the city, and absolutely love it! So much energy, no matter the season or time of day.

  5. Interesting post. I especially liked reading about the most photographed sight in New York and was surprised it was the Guggenheim Museum. I have taken pictures there -- the building is fabulous -- but I would have bet on Times Square or my favorite, the Statue of Liberty.
