Questions From Fabulous Bloggers

12-17-2021  Cyranny  “What’s the worst day of the week for you?”  Why? I think the worst day of the week for me is Thursday. I say this because it is at this point that I realize the week is over and I have to wonder if I accomplished all I had set out to.

1-3-2022   Mrs. A (Jazzocracy)   Mrs A proposes a question for a future SYW. “Would you ever consider posing naked or semi-naked for the camera or a live audience (acting in a play)?” I have thought about this before and I think to myself, “if I ever needed the money to help someone and I couldn’t get it anywhere else”. But to me this is a big no because I am making the parameter so far fetched that it wouldn’t happen. So, nope.

1-10-2022  Di    With the recent energy crisis here in the UK, would you prefer electric, gas, oil or some other means of heating your home? Everything seems super expensive right now. I would say no to oil, those prices were so high when I lived up north. Gas maybe since I think that can be produced easily, but I think the process is what causes all the carbon in the air. Electric is probably the way to go if you can hook it up to solar. Now, living in the south, I cannot understand why there isn’t solar on every possible building. I understand the maintenance but I think the benefits far outweigh the problem of that.

1-10-2022  Marilyn  When this pops up later tonight, I MIGHT have thought of a few questions. Like: In your household, who takes care of the bills, taxes, and other financial stuff? Is one person responsible or is it a shared chore? And this has made me notice that my phone is missing. Oops. I have always taken care of the paying the bills and all that. I think because I am so OCD about paying on time and knowing what has to paid and when. I’m not always perfect at it, especially now with the new house, new city, new utilities. David has no problem with me taking care of it.

1-10-2022  Yinglan  Not sure if this question was asked before. It’s a bit of a silly one: If you can have any one job (real or fiction) in the galaxy (yes, the galaxy, I’m widening the search radius, imagining relocation to other planets possible), what is that job? I would want to be a successful psychiatrist that works with, treats, and researches mental disorders that are perplexing to the world. I want to talk to the really crazy people and just see what their minds are telling them. I want to know why they do what they do and why they think its okay and why we can’t find a way to treat this or somehow “cure” it.


I hope you all enjoy answering these ‘other blogger questions’.   You may wish to pop over to their site and say hello.  They’re ALL awesome!  

GRATITUDE SECTION  (as always optional)

Who are you grateful for? I am so thankful for my family, friends, and my health. I don’t have everything but I am lucky to have what I do have!

  1. Wonderful Share Your World, Christine! 🙂 Solar power seems to be the most eco-friendly option and hopefully humanity will grab onto the idea and make it available for mass use before things get worse! But wind power apparently (aside from those turbines) is another good option and doesn’t horribly pollute (to my knowledge). Here they had a company come around and offer installation of solar panels on people’s houses and a surprising number took ’em up on it. We are getting a lot more sunny days than in the past too, so they’re fortunate. And I don’t know precisely how solar energy works, but I spotted a house with some on the roof during the last snow storm and wondered if those people were feeling the chill or if they were warm.. I liked your answer about the nudity, which is the same one I would give if I were doing this challenge. Only mine wouldn’t be for such altruistic reasons I’m afraid. It would be to get myself out of financial woes. I’d give some away to a good charity though. 😇 I enjoyed reading all your answers and thought they were great! Your gratitude answer was very sweet too! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Melanie. My daughter was selling solar for maybe 6 months or so and it makes sense. The problem I have heard is the maintenance of the panels. It just makes no sense to me why someone can’t develop something that works well and is easy and free like sunlight!

  2. Lovely gratitude Christine.
    A lot of people had solar panels on their boats but we discovered it wasn’t cost effective for us.
    The gvmnt here had a scheme for solar power and were giving grants for installations……… however when we read the small print, we discovered our roof was facing the wrong way, whatever we stored in energy was given to the electricity company ad we got a small discount on our usage, and the grants were payable at £500 a year over 20 years. We had oil central heating in the cottage and found it very economical as there was no gas in the village and bottled gas was more expensive. Here we have natural gas and it’s cheap and economical but the government have other ideas and are trying to phase it out in favour of electrical pumps which are expensive to install, noisy, and will prove expensive to run. It all depends on your usage and property of course, but with new builds having all electric heating, when there’s a power outage, you have nothing.
    We have hundreds of wind turbines off shore here and they are still adding to them. There are several wind farm inland too, and of the 16 here in our town, usually at least 4 aren’t working!

      1. A property close to us when we were in the cottage had a wind turbine attached to his barn. Not only did he have to have panning permissions (and thus pay the council to put it up), but he had to turn it off between 10pm and 7am so as not to disturb the neighbours.
