I like to go out. Theatre, cinema, exhibitions, excursions, or meeting with friends

2. What skill do you wish more people took the time to learn?

using a Smartphone, a tablet or a computer for the vintage people. Life would be more easy for them.

3. What's something you ate as a child you can't stand now as an adult?

Salad with sweet dressing ! My grandma always put sugar in the salad and milk plus the vinegar of course, that was a German recipe !

To get rid of useless principles my parents had taught me

6. Insert your own random thought here.

 When do I pull out weeds in our garden (yard) ? Each day I find another excuse !


  1. I love all your questions and answers! Thanks for visiting my blog. You've been on my mind quite a bit but I have struggled with internet here in the mountains. I'll contact you shortly... Jo

  2. I think the one lesson I learned from my parents (well, one of many anyway) is to be polite! Yes please, no thank you and the use of Monsieur/Madame. No tu, always vous, especially with older people. I still think it very important and often wish young people would still do it.

  3. Good answers! I seemed to eat a fair amount of bologna and mustard sandwiches as a kid. Can't stand the taste of bologna anymore.

  4. The food question is the most interesting -- definitely made me think!

  5. I've never tried salad with sugar, but did eat tomatoes with sugar as a child :-)

  6. The German recipe sounds very different. I have never tried that before. Nice to know about it though.

  7. The sunflowers made me smile, a wonderful addition to the garden.

  8. Thank you for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2018/05/strange-sights.html

  9. Maybe you can get a rabbit to eat the weeds. I am not sure your cats would approve though.

  10. I am more of a 'salty' eater myself as well...however, if it was a German recipe, I would love it...as that is my heritage.
    Do you have the recipe for the salad dressing? I would love to try it!

    Thank you for sharing!

    - Lisa

  11. Sugar with everything was such a Grandma thing wasn't it - my Grandma gave me brown sugar sandwiches!
    Happy days!
