A Blarney HodgePodge


1. What would you do if you found a pot of gold? Let's pretend this pot of gold is worth exactly $1500 (which would actually be more like a cup of gold at current values). Anyway, let's also pretend you have to spend it as opposed to making a donation someplace. Now tell me what you would do with that cup pot of gold? I'm really torn here. I'd love to buy some camera equipment. I could drop $1500 easy. But it would also go towards a car for the daughter. Such a dilemma.

2. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form? I wear a little green. That's about it.


3. Have you been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug? What spring cleaning job most needs doing at your house? What spring cleaning job are you most dreading? Not really been bitten yet. The next two questions get the same answer. The basement. Ugh.

4. lime-shamrock-sage-forest...your favorite shade of green? I'm more a sage kind of girl.

5. Thomas Jefferson once said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." So...do you believe in luck or do you believe we make our own luck? I'd have to agree with Jefferson. The harder you work, the more opportunities are presented to you. Some people might call that luck. Ben Franklin said it best: "Diligence is the mother of good luck." Prepare. Take action. Expect positive results.

6. Monday (3/14) was Pi Day. Get it? Pi =3.14. Those math types are so clever aren't they? Since I'm not one of them tell me what's your favorite piE (the edible kind). Pie? I love pie. Pumpkin. Apple. Coconut Creme. I'm not that particular.

7. That same date (3/14) happens to be the birthdate of the late physicist Albert Einstein. I bet he knew the value of Pi. So...what do you think is more important and or valuable in life... intelligence or common sense? Wow, Joyce. You're really taxing the ol' brain. Definitely common sense. How else would you know to get out of the rain and not drown?

8. Insert your own random thought here. Sometimes, I jump into things with both feet without really thinking it through. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting. Please hop on over to Joyce's to read other participants answers or link up with your own.
Peace and Joy,

I can empathize with the car situation. My daughter is at college without a car. It's made her life a little difficult, but she has some very understanding friends who tote her everywhere.

Enjoyed all of your answers, as I usually do!

Wouldn't it be incredible to stumble on a pot of gold? I think I'd splurge on camera equipment...I love to take pictures! I do understand your dilemma, though.

Love the Ben Franklin quote!! I might have to print that and put it on my office wall!!

Love to know what prompted your random thought ;-)

I love the Colossians verse. Pumpkin pie, yummy!, another one I didn't think of. I guess I like more kinds of pie than I thought I did. lol

Mary said...

#8: I do, too. That's why some of my answers aren't really answers!

Joyce said...

Oh I'm definitely a jumper too : ) And I'm kinda like you when it comes to pie!

I don't want that cleaning bug anywhere near me! I like sage too.
Common sense is important, my son never had it when he was young and I use to worry about him.

I was so excited to celebrate Pi day, and then by the time the husband got home, I had forgotten all about it! I guess I'll have to force myself to celebrate it late, huh?
Oh the sacrifices!
