1. What is your favorite Mexican dish?
I don't care for it.  Tacos is about my limits.

Right away.  I could't go outside until it was finished.  Back in the days when kids actually went outside to play until the street lights came on.

4. When you were young, did you like school lunches?
I never ate them always took a home lunch.  Very picky eater.

I'm sure it can be.  I don't focus on religion, I focus on Christ and my beliefs.

Probably football.  I don't really get into sports.

Money no I'm not.  But heavenly blessings  my Father owns it all.

8. Which of these would you have the best chance for success in administering:


B) Heimlich Maneuver

A) Salsa

B) Hip Hop

Definetly waltz, evening gown swaying to the music.

When I had to call my older brothers and other family and tell them I had gotten a phone call that my younger brother had passed away.

11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics.
I never attended college.

12. New variation on an old question: If there's a song in your head that just won't get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song?
There's always a song in my head.  I can hear words and think of a song and start singing it.  Gets on my families nerves.  So no one song in particular.

Chris, a new blog, and a giveaway

I've decided to add a new blog, one just for prayer requests, and praises of the prayers answered.  You can find it here.  If at anytime you have a prayer request you would like added please let me know.  Either through a comment or e-mail.  I've moved all my prayer requests post over there so the ones here will be deleted soon.

Chris has been moved to a regular room but is still unable to talk.  They feel certain it is from the tubes being in his throat for almost three weeks.  That is throat is irritated and sore but just a matter of time before it's better.

Don't forget I also have a giveaway  that will be ending tomorrow.

The Penguins of Madagascar DVD Giveaway

It's time for another giveaway.   Blogsparks sent  me a box of Trix cereal, two launchers,  and The Penguins of Madagascar DVD.   We love having movie night with a bowl of popcorn with M&M's in it.  Yes the sweet and salty is wonderful.   Sometimes we have even added pretzels and goldfish snacks.
Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, you’ll “commence operations” with one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien. Each participating cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including:

Dive In, Soldier – Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you’ll be squid bait.
Longest Propulsion Launcher – Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.

Target Practice – Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.

Clear the Wall – Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin’ troops, earn those wings!

Each character is unique and has their own specific role, and together, they’re a team with lots of character. With five character launchers to collect, make a splash this summer and try to successfully complete all of their missions.

If you would like a chance to win this great giveaway just leave a comment telling which character from Penguins of Madagascar is your's or your child's favorite.

One fortunate winner will be chosen next Wednesday August 11th.

The prize packs and information were all given to me from General Mills and Nickelodeon through MyBlogSpark.)
