1. What keeps you blogging?

I love writing. I have written all my life since I learned it, and when I discovered by pure coincidence Blogs, I immediately started one, first writing adventures of my cats.  But that was not enough I had also others things to write and I started this blog. It became a hobby for me a nice occupation when there is nothing else to do, or better,  a good excuse for when there is something to do !!

2. Some people like to travel in the winter months. Do you enjoy the beach in winter? According to Southern Living the best U.S. beach towns to visit this winter are-

St Simons Island (Georgia), Hilton Head (South Carolina), Bald Head Island (North Carolina), Seaside (Florida), Bay St. Louis (Mississippi), Cape San Blas (Florida), South Padre Island (Texas), Folly Beach (South Carolina), Chincoteague (Virginia), Duck Key (Florida), Nags Head (North Carolina), and Fairhope (Alabama)

Have you been to any of the towns listed (in any season)? Which on the list appeals to you most this winter?
If I could I would stay at least 2 month in Egypt in my second home hotel. For the moment I always go end November for 2 weeks. There is never rain and the sun is shining. I have no breathing difficulties which I have when the weather is too humid.

It would never come into my mind to spend winter holidays in the States,  too far and too complicated now ! I have visited the States in the 80/90th when my aunt still lived in Madison and have seen quite a lot : Madison to Orlando Florida
Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida
Back over Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee (Memphis), Missouri, Illinois, Madison Wi
New York to Madison.
New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts (Cape Code, Hyannis, Boston), New York (Syracuse, Niagara Falls (on 4 July but in Canada), Michigan, Madison Wi
Back over Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsilvania, New Jersey

3. What's a song you're embarrassed to know all the lyrics to? Are you really embarrassed or do just think you should be?
I usually only keep the first words in my mind the rest I forget, so I am not embarrassed  anyway I am never embarrassed or I can't remember.

4. When you were a kid what's something you thought would be fantastic as an adult, but now that you're an adult you realize it's not all that fantastic?
I wanted to be a filmstar, sitting in a luxury car and waving to the crowd. Now I see the truth and  I think it's better not to have such a public life !

5. Share a quote you hope will inspire you in 2018.

I think this suits me best

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I just wonder how the foot reflexology works and if it really efficient ? I will go this afternoon to a friend who had learned this kind of massage.

I can't wait to hear what you think about foot reflexology (after your two-week visit). Wish I had a friend who knew massage of any kind!
