1. My real life friends came through with another question this week so thank you real life friends.  When you've eaten in a restaurant do you complete their comment card? Do you take online surveys highlighted at the bottom of store receipts?

If I got really good or really bad service I will fill out the card or if they offer me something free for doing it. Sometimes I feel out the online surveys but most times I don't. Yet I know a lot of people who have won simply because most people don't take the time so I always mean to do better.

2. The (US) ban on women in combat was lifted at the end of January.  It will probably be next year before specifics are worked out but it's been reported over 200,000 front line positions will eventually open up to women.  Your thoughts? 

I respect any woman who wants to be involved. I personally don't feel that the front line is any place for a woman but if thats what floats your boat go for it.

3. In looking back at all the blog posts you've written, what's your favorite post title?

I don't normally have cute fun titles since I am not very creative so I pick this one 8 yr old Explains God

4. What's worse-overly permissive parents or overly protective parents? Did your own parents lean toward the permissive or the protective category? If you're a parent where do you fall?

I feel that overly permissive parents are way worse. Children don't learn self control. I have seen way too many times the results. If you don't correct and train them while they are little you have no chance when they reach their teen years and beyond.  People are not doing their children any favors by letting them by with everything. Other children don't want to be their friends and family doesn't want to be around them. My parents were in the I could care less phase. My mother tended to be very strict but that was because she just didn't want to bother with anything not out of any desire to shape me life.  I am in the overprotective category myself.

5.  Candlelight-moonlight-firelight-bright lights in the big city....which one's your favorite?

 oh its so hard to choose. I love night and the moon when the sky is clear and you can see all the stars but I also love candlelight and I love fire. I remember playing around bonfires growing up and have never lost my thrill. I can't say I am a fan of big city lights simply because I don't like big cities. I do like to be outside of town up high and looking into the lights. They are awful pretty that way.

6. Dr. Seuss's birthday was celebrated on Saturday. What's a favorite book you remember (Seuss or otherwise) from your childhood?  Did books play an important role in your growing up years?  Explain.
I have always been a reader. I actually taught myself to read before school started then I taught all the kids in the neighborhood to read. But I can't really remember any books before I was in 5th grade. The first book I really remember was called My Enemy the Queen by Victoria Holt. I bought it at a school book fair and read it over and over for years. Looking at it now though I can't imagine why they had it at the school fair since in no way shape or form is it a children's book.

7. To quote Dr. Seuss...

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere." 

Share something funny you've recently read, seen, or heard.

I actually  wrote a post earlier today that had 2 funny stories included. Check it out and pick which one is your favorite.

8.   Insert your own random thought here.

The big thing this week seems to be the Bible on the History Channel. I watched it Sunday night but wasn't that impressed. It was ok but I don't think it was factual enough for me. I was shocked later to talk about it with some friends to discover how little they actually knew about the Bible. I mean people who are church going born again Christians and they didn't know a lot of the stuff being portrayed. I don't know everything but I have read the book over and over again and remember most of the big stories.  Did you watch it, are you going to watch it, and how did you feel about it?

Oh, I haven't thought of Victoria Holt in long time. I went through a spell in my 20's when I read everything of hers I could get my hands on.

I did not see the Bible program but heard talk of it. We don't get that channel.

I watched The Bible, and will probably carry on watching. It was a little slow in parts and I felt like if you were not familiar with the Bible at least a little bit, the first part would have been confusing. I thought it got better as the program went on, but maybe I just got my head around the filming. I was sad they omitted Joseph but I can see how they can't include everything. I'm always nervous to see Jesus portrayed by an actor on tv so we'll see how it goes. I did get out my Bible at one point to check the accuracy of something and it got me to thinking maybe the show will prompt someone to open one for the first time. I admire the creators for their attempt to do this sort of thing in Hollywood!
