  1. What is the meaning of life?
    To better ourselves and strive for perfection. No, it’s not achievable, but we should die trying.
  2. How fast is too fast?
    When my head spins.
  3. Do you believe in Karma?
    No, she has disappointed me too many times. Unless you have a dog named Karma…
  4. What’s your favorite type of Jelly?
    One that is paired with peanut butter. I would have to say that my top three are: forest berries, lingonberry, and strawberry. (Who likes grape? Yuck!)
  5. What is the best mode of transportation?
    I like planes because they take me to far-away places. I also like my own feet, and/or a bike.
  6. How would you solve the world’s problems?
    I would invent a magic spell to do it.
  7. What’s your favorite meal?
    Breakfast because you can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, etc. Even dessert.

    1. I’m not sure why you didn’t get a pingback, either… WP can be strange sometimes.

      I just wanted to show some appreciation. It’s been a pleasure knowing you all this time and gaining some insights to all sorts of different things.

  1. I rather enjoy your award posts; though I confess, their length often gets them put off for a time. Hence my surprise when I finally get to it and find my own name… Like Ruth, I didn’t receive a pingback. Though perhaps that’s really a devilish plot on your part to keep us on our toes? Well anyway, thank you very much for the tag. 😊 Though, may I ask… Why are your questions/answers put under the “Rules” heading on page 5? It’s very strange to see “Rules: Where do UFOs come from?”

    1. When it comes to awards, some people visit the nominee’s blog and announce it. I never did it, because I don’t want to push (some people don’t do them), and because I like to keep you all on your toes. However, I have always done the pingbacks so there is some sort of FYI. I have no idea why it didn’t work this time…

      As far as the length is concerned, that’s why I do pages – so you can read one page at a time and know exactly where you left off.

      Thank you for pointing out the rules snaffu. You have earned your editor’s wage this week.

      1. Well, I have been having some WordPress issues lately, so… We’ll just blame it on them. 😉

        Read bit by bit, as time allows? Goldie… That would be smart. Ridiculous!

        I’ve earned my wage, eh? Excellent. I expect my payment in chocolates.

          1. Ah, wonderful! Although, I do wonder why people don’t make chocolates and the like in the shape of things where a beheading would be more desirous. Like… vampires, maybe? Because edibles in the form of, well, anything with a head, are going to get beheaded, it’s just a fact of life. And we make bunnies, and Santas, and poor, innocent, nondescript sort of people. Now what does that say about us?

            Okay… I know what it says about me. 😅

  2. I have finally responded to your tag 😉 Go check my post out.

    I thought it was “Love after Love” Cher sang about! Am I wrong?

    If things can get worse, chances are they will – Unfortunately true

    I love your list of favorite feelings!
