1. Have you done more binge watching this past year than in 'normal' years? Any plans to break that habit in 2021? Tell us one or two shows you binged last year that you really liked. 

 If I think it over I don't "binge watching" more than in normal times, if this expression means TV watching. I have no time ! My life is regulated like a watch or a train schedule ! Mornings blogging, then lunch, just a sandwich, then I little crime story on TV, not a bloody one, and then I go out ! or shopping or to a friend or they come here. We call it our "Lockdown Babble Club" and meet on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. There is nothing else to do but walking eventually, because everything else is closed ! After supper, in the evening we Mr. G. and I watch a movie and then usually he goes to bed to read a book and I surf a bit Internet and then I also go to bed to read a little bit Facebook, because it is so funny. 

2. January 26th is Australia Day. Have you ever visited or lived in Australia? Have you ever tasted Vegemite, and if so what did you think? Is a trip down under on your bucket list? We answered a question about travel three months ago (the October 21st Hodgepodge), but let's revisit now...where are you when it comes to planning or even imagining travel this year? 

I have never been to Australia myself, but our son has made a whole tour by plane, rented car and had seen everything what had to be seen. He liked it so much that he wanted to stay there, but then he thought it over, and reason won he had and still has an extremely good job in the Publicity industry and it would have been stupid to stay there. Today he is happy about his decision he is still in the same big company. So I saw Australia through his eyes and the tons of photos he had brought along. I also have a few blogfriends from Australia so that I have the impression to have been there ! I have read that there were protests concerning the Australia day. The only travel plan I have for this year is going in November to Egypt to warm up my old bones, it's now the second year I haven't been there. And I missed it very much. Since 10 years it became my winter home.

3. Something that zaps your energy? Something that energizes you?  

 The lockdown makes me lazy, tired and unmotivated for everything and I even don't have the energy to pick up a crumb. 

 4. On a scale of 1-10 what are your eating habits like these days? (1=all junk food all the time and 10= juicing every green thing in the frig) Healthiest meal you've eaten in the last week or so? 

Short answer 10/10 nothing has changed in our eating habits, we don't eat more sweets or more chocolate, we just continue as we always have. 

 5. What's your most often 'Back in my day....' thing to say? 

hate this sentence which is the same as "To my time we .... ! I am still alive, my time is not over and what people regret is not the past but their youth which was in the past. I prefer to look into the future !

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I think nothing anymore, I just wait that the lockdown is lifted and that I get back my life as it was before or even better. I want to go out, travel, and be free !

Your cartoons are very apt!

Love your cartoons! And yes, we are just waiting to be able to be out and about more.

I am so sorry that you are still so locked down there. We are free to go most anywhere as long as the businesses are open, and most are with some limitations. Hoping that it changes there for you real soon and you can get out again.

The healthiest thing I've eaten lately has been carrot salad.

My son and his wife is talking about going to Malborne.
Coffee is on and stay safe

I agree the lockdown is exhausting. We have to think about every move as opposed to doing what comes naturally. So ready for it to end! I hope you get that trip to Egypt!

I like your attitude. Looking to the future is a good thing.
