Have You Been On A Hot Air Balloon Ride

I have never been on a hot air balloon ride. I have always wanted to do it but never have. When I was between the ages of 13 and 15 I was good friends with a girl whose dad participated in Hot Air Balloon Rallies. What we would do was trail his balloon. We would basically follow the balloon in a truck on the ground. Then we would help land it and put it away. So I did a lot of hard work with the balloon but never got a ride! My mom went once though and LOVED it! It's pretty funny that she liked it so much because she was scared of heights. But she had a great time. Someday I'm going on a Hot Air Balloon.

Have you Been on a Hot Air Balloon Ride?

Have You Seen AapkaVideo

We have all seen or heard about YouTube. It's pretty stinking popular. Now there is some competition out there AapkaVideo - Indian Videos. Yes you read that right. There is a new site out there called AapkaVideo that is completely dedicated to Indian Videos. It's kind of interesting. There are some crazy videos, some funny videos, and some that are a bit risque. So when you get tired of the same old thing with YouTube you ought to check out AapkaVideo.

Have you seen AapkaVideo?

Did You Vote Today

I did vote today. We had a primary election here. It was just a one question ballot which is really odd. It seemed too easy! All it was over was city commissioners. You could pick three or less from the list and submit. Easy picking for me. There were only three guys that I was even interested in so it made it pretty simple! I don't think many people had gone to vote even though it was 4:00 p.m. When I walked in the little old ladies running the precinct seemed VERY happy to see me. They were very nice little gals.

So did you vote today?

What Did You Think Of The Oscars

I thought the Oscars were great. I didn't get to watch all of it but the parts I saw were wonderful. I thought that Ellen did a great job hosting. She seemed very comfortable. And I liked Forest Whitacker's speech. I just wish that he didn't have it written out. I don't like it when they write the speech ahead of time. I'm glad Jennifer Hudson won for Dreamgirls. She is amazing! And I loved her dress.

Okay enough of me... what did you think of the Oscars?

Are You Watching The Oscars

I am going to try to watch the Oscars tonight. I have a lot of homework so I don't know how much of it I will get to watch but I am going to try. The Oscars are one of my favorite awards shows. I wanted to have an Oscar party this year but just didn't have the time. Maybe next year...

So are you watching the Oscars?

What Is Your Favorite Game Show

My favorite game show has always been Family Feud! I love it. I think my family would rock at that game. I think the old host was better than the new one. The new guy is the guy that used to play Al on Home Improvement. He isn't horrible but he isn't as fun as the old guy. If I was on Family Feud the hardest part for me would be picking what other family members to take on the show with me. We would totally win though!!!

So what is your favorite game show?

Do You Donate To The Fraternal Order of Police

I do donate to the Fraternal Order of Police. My mom used to donate and now I do. It's just something that I've always done. In the past I could always anticipate their call for donations and then I would get the little sticker to put in my window. Now if you donate you can Get your FOP Gold Supporter Shield! It's better than a sticker. And now it's even easier to make donations than ever before. You can simply go to and make your donation online. It makes it very easy for you to do a good thing!

So do you donate to The Fraternal Order of Police?

Which Is Better... What You Look At Or What You See

Okay first I'm so sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Things have been crazy busy in my world and I'm so behind. Time flies!

This question was posed to me by my step mom Cricket. She is killing me. Who asks something like this???? How about a simple question?

But after thinking about it I like what I see better than what I look at. Mainly because what I see is viewed through my feelings, perceptions, etc. If I want to put my rose colored glasses on I can. So what I see is pretty good right now...

What about you all... Which is better for you. What you see or what you look at?

How Was Your Valentine's Day

I've had a good Valentine's Day. I got some cute Valentine's cards. It's always nice to get happy mail! Roy, my ex boyfriend called me today to wish me a happy Valentine's Day. He also offered to come by my office and pick up my car to take it to get the oil changed. I took him up on the offer. So I got an oil change from my ex for Valentine's Day. How many people can say that! :-) Anyways it's been a good day.

How was your Valentine's Day?

Have You Been To The Carnival

Cass is hosting the Postie Carnival today. You ought to stop by and visit. There are quite a few great blogs participating. I bet you can find at least a couple you really enjoy. I have visited about 10 so far and the posts are really good this time around. I'm impressed!

Have You Seen The News Section

Lombard Direct has added a new section to their website. The news section includes a great deal of useful information about banking news and property prices. There is a great article regarding self-employment that I found helpful. While being self employed can improve your quality of life now it can set you up for financial insecurity when retirement comes around. The article made me really think about my desire to be my own boss someday. Overall this website provides clear information that is easy to read and informative. I recommend that you take the time to visit.

So have you seen the News Section?

Can You Do Any Magic Tricks

I am horrible at magic tricks. I can't do a single one! I really wish I could though. As a child I loved magic shows. I still do actually. I always thought it was fascinating and it could hold my attention for hours.

So can you do any magic tricks?

Do You Have Kids

I don't have any kids. I really want kids. In fact I know a lot of people that want kids but have a lot of trouble actually having kids. There are lots of different ways to create a family. I'm adopting which is the right fit for me. Some of my friends have conceived through lots of different types of infertility treatments. That was the right fit for them. And I've even met someone that has used a surrogate mother. There are lots of ways to create a family and none of them are any better than any other way. There is a great site out there that provides information for families about pregnancy, pregnancy rates, and women's health issues.

So do you have kids?

Have You Been In A Play

I have been in a play. I loved school plays when I was a kid. From 7th grade on I participated in every school play in some manner. Sometimes I acted though that wasn't my favorite thing to do. Most of the time I was the stage manager which I loved! There was just something very fun to me about starting something and everyone being lost and confused and then watching it all fall into place by opening night. I also made a lot of great friends from my time spent on plays. You spend a lot of time together and really get to know people that way.

So have you been in a play?

Have You Ever Owned A Ford Mustang

I have never owned a Ford Mustang but someday I would like too. I love the 2007 Mustang. I think it's a really beautiful car. It's definately new but it has the look of an older Mustang which is nice. I would like the features of a new car but the feel of an old car if that makes any sense. I like the muscle car look. I wouldn't want a soft top. I'm not a big fan of that. I would have to have a hard top for sure. And I would want it to be white.

I know some people that have red Mustangs. That's what you usually see. Darby, my best friend's mom Donna has a red Mustang. I have driven it a couple of times. I really like it but so many people have the red ones. So I would want white so I could be a little bit different. White would be hot. And I'd like to have leather seats. Probably gray leather. And since I'd have enough money to pay for the Mustang I would go all out on the features. I'd have the navigational system so I could put the being lost in the city routine to rest, a kicking stereo, and dual climate control. I think if I had all of that I'd be a pretty happy Ford Mustang owner!

Have You Ever Owned A Ford Mustang?

Do You Like Donuts

I do like donuts. I don't eat them very often. Obviously they don't match up with the whole diet plan I'm on... Too bad donuts aren't good for you. My favorite kind of donuts are the Krispy Kreme glazed donut with the chocolate frosting! That's the best!!!

So do you like donuts and what kind is your favorite?

Have You Been To Bulgaria

I have never been to Bulgaria. But Katie a girl I work with has gone several times. She loves it. She and her husband want to buy property in Bulgaria and move to Bulgaria in the next few years. She talks about Bulgaria all the time!!! What I think is funny is that Katie hates water but she loves to go to the beach in Bulgaria... Doesn't make sense to me but whatever works for her.

So have you been to Bulgaria?

Have You Ever Gotten A Speeding Ticket

I have gotten a speeding ticket. It's been about 6 years now and I've only had one but it was expensive. I was driving in the city trying to find my cousins house for the first time. So I was focused on the street signs and I guess I missed the flashing yellow school zone sign! I don't know how I did that but I did. So I got pulled over doing 31. What's weird is I stopped right in front of the speed limit sign and it said 30 so I was a little unsure of why I was being stopped until the cop informed me it was a school zone! I felt like such an idiot. I totally desearved the ticket and didn't even attempt to get out of it. I have however talked my way out of a couple tickets since then... :-)

So have you ever gotten a speeding ticket?

Who Is Making Money

I'm making some money and it's all thanks to PayPerPost!!! I've been doing PayPerPost since October 23, 2006. Hard to believe it's only been a little over three months. I guess time really does fly when your blogging! In that time I have made $912.23 and in the next 30 days I have another 336.88 heading towards my PayPal account! That's pretty exciting to me.

I don't do a whole lot with numbers. Math was never my best subject but I did figure a couple of things out that I think I ought to share. I've made 187 PayPerPost posts on two blogs. So it evens out to about $6.70 a post. That works for me. Or another way to look at it would be that I'm earning about $13.00 a day. Again that works for me! Either way the money is very nice. So my question for you is why aren't you using PayPerPost and making some money too? You can click on my little affiliate button on the left to get all signed up.

PayPerPost has been such a great help to me financially. I've been applying all my PayPerPost earnings to the last of my credit card debt. I should have it all paid off by the end of the year thanks to PayPerPost. I never would have guessed that blogs would have been how I conquered my debt but it is. I'm just grateful that PayPerPost is out there for regular old bloggers like me to use!

So are you making money with PayPerPost?

Does Your Pet Do Weird Things

My dog Lena has to be one of the weirdest animals I've ever seen. For one thing she is soooo rotten! This week she has started a new little game for herself. She refuses to drink out of her water bowl in puppy prision. I call my laundry room puppy prison because that is where she says while I am at work. Well she just won't drink anything in there so when I get home and let her out she runs straight for her water bowl in the kitchen and drinks like a crazy woman! It makes no sense to me. And then tonight I watered all my plants and she started drinking the water out of the plants. So she has two water bowls full of water but drinks the plant water. So then she had mud and leaves in her beard from the plant! I just can't win with that dog. It makes no sense to me!!!

So does your pet do weird things too?

Who Wants To Say Hi

I personally think this is one of the coolest online dating services out there! Not only did they have the most adorable name but it is also offers Free Online Dating. And I don't mean free like a lot of the others. They don't let you make your profile for free and then charge you for matches. The whole thing is free! I love free and I love to say Hi! So pay them a visit, say hi to some folks and who knows you may have one hot date for Valentine's Day!

So do you want to Just Say Hi?

What Do You Collect

I collect several things. One of my favorite things are Willow Tree Angels. I've ended up with quite a large collection of them. I have more than 20 of them but there are still dozens that I want but don't have yet... Someday though.

Some other things that I collect include teapots, umbrellas, ladders, and windchimes.

So what do you collect?

What New Blog Did You Visit Today

Today I visited a great blog called Pencil Thin. While the blog isn't new it is new to me. I'm enjoying it! There are a lot of great tips for healthy eating and living which I need. There was a recipe that I just can't wait to try. There are also some funny jokes and we all know that laughter is really good medicine. So go get your daily dose!

What new blog did you visit today?

How Much Is A Gallon of Gas

Today I had to fill up my car and gas is now $2.09 here in good old Kansas. That is actually lower than it was 6 months ago but higher than last week. Last week I filled up for $1.98 a gallon. I hate that it fluctuates so much. I'm grateful it is below $2.50 but I'd really like for it to stay below $2.00. I don't know how realistic that is but it would sure be nice. What I'd really like is to have a car that doesn't need gas. That would make me really happy. Sometimes I think my next car ought to be a hybrid....

So how much is a gallon of gas in your area?

Have You Been To Dubai

I have never been to Dubai but I guess it's a pretty hot place. Not just temperature hot but things are happening there kinda hot. There are some beautiful man made islands there and lots of other interesting property in Dubai. Something I think is pretty awesome about Dubai is that fact that they have virtually no income tax! I love that!!! I'm working on my taxes now and it's making me very unhappy. Dubai may be the place to go... I could handle living on an island...

Have you ever been to Dubai?
