    Food Delivery Services

    I don't see anything wrong with it from the business side of things. People do need to make a living. What concerns me is the wrapping/containers that the food is in, and the fact that 2 or 3 different people touched it all while preparing it. Were they sick? Do they wash their hands regularly? I know the virus is spread mainly from human to human, but it does stay on surfaces for 3 days or so. Maybe I'm being overly cautious, but you just don't know.

    Food Delivery Services

    How do you guys feel about having food delivered in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic? Is it okay? Unethical? A good choice because the delivery person needs to make money? A good choice because the restaurant needs to make money? A poor decision because it puts someone else at risk? What are the odds that the driver has health insurance? I'm so torn on this one. Some politicians have suggested that ordering food for delivery is safer than going to the grocery store and that ordering from a nearby restaurant helps the local economy. So, do you think it's okay to order food?

    Hi, I've hit my 7th post.

    Language Learning

    I always want to learn new things and a second (or third) language is no different. I've used Rosetta Stone and Duolingo and am amazed how after months words and phrases are almost like my native language. Of course, the verbs and sentence structure is much more difficult. Bottom line is if you really want to learn another language don't stop trying.

    Why films responsible for what people doing?

    Personally, I think it is a cop out for people to say they did something because of a film/TV series/song, etc. I also believe they CAN separate reality with what's on the screen, and just think they will get in less trouble or be forgiven if they say such and such movie made them do it or gave them the idea. I think it's pretty rare for someone not to be able to differentiate between reality and tv, etc.

    Stress Reliever

    When I'm stressed, I usually try to do some breathing exercises, close my eyes and listen to music, or color. Yes, I still color. I was so glad when they started marketing coloring books for adults. Petting my animals also works great to relieve stress. I swear I feel stress and anxiety melting away with every pet.

    Do men prefer blonde or brunette?

    I don't really know which men prefer more. I was a blonde for years. Then used Manic Panic to go pink, blue, and red. Then, back to blonde before dying my hair black , back to blonde, and now my hair is amethyst (purple). I haven't really noticed a difference in how men react to me. Of course, my husband, prefers my "normal/natural" blonde hair. Personally, I prefer men with dark hair though...

    Thunder Storm or Snow Storm

    I love thunderstorms when I am awake, but for sleeping snowstorms are better. Thunderstorms are too loud and usually wake me up. Not to mention the fact that I get nervous about all the trees/tree limbs that could come crashing down on the house.

    Tattoos

    I have four tattoos: One on my foot, two on my ankle (inside and out), one on my upper arm, and one on my inner forearm. All are usually hidden except the one on my inner forearm and I don't mind since it is a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon with angel wings. Every time I see it, it reminds me of my mother and grandmother and how I need to be really proactive with my health in that regard. Plus, when others see it they ask about it and maybe they will be reminded to do a self-exam and/or get a mammogram. I don't judge others based on their tattoos either because "their body, their artwork". That said, I personally do not like face tattoos and would never get one.

    Do you like pets?

    Yes, I do love pets. Well, I love animals in general especially dogs because they don't judge you if you are low on money or have gained a few pounds, etc. They tend to forgive and live for the moment, you know? I prefer animals over people!

    Hotels

    I've stayed in numerous hotels, some great and some not so great. I love traveling! We go on mini vacations often, long weekends or even just for the weekend. We bought a Harley last summer (great decision). We now pack a bag (couple days worth of clothes), jump on and drive. A lot of times we just drive until we find a neat town and book a room. Other times we book ahead of time. I don't have a preference. I like them all. One thing I always do is tip the housekeeping staff.

    Tattoos

    I was brought up in a very strict religion and neighborhood. We were taught that tattoos were for those in the armed forces or in gangs. Well, I’m an adult now. While I don’t have a tattoo, I have not ruled it out. I also very much appreciate the artistry behind the tattoos. Most are beautiful works of art that have been a part of life in most cultures, I’ll bet, since the beginning of time. They are heartfelt mementos of people, places and feelings important to the wearer. How can anyone not look at them with awe?

    Do you like pets?

    I love pets. I grew up with all sorts of animals, but as an adult I hadn’t had one in many years. I finally brought home a kitten. My fiancée had never had a pet, so he thought they were dirty and noisy. Now, after meeting her, you should see him. He is a 6 foot 4 inch piece of mush around his “little princess!”

    Stress Reliever

    I would like to say that I relieve stress by doing yoga and meditation, but the truth is that chocolate or cake can usually do the trick. I also get some fresh air on the balcony, listen to music or play with my kitten to calm my nerves. A good nap never hurt, either, and can be good for you.

    The Coronavirus

    I'm sorry to hear that, Nickel! I know you were excited about your new job. Work is still going about the same for me, but we aren't brainstorming together or going out after work like we did before. That's the toughest part for me - all the social distancing. It's not as appealing to hit the treadmill as it is to run with a group outside. Work is tougher without someone to bounce ideas off of. Volunteering online doesn't seem as productive as volunteering in person. And it doesn't feel like Lent without coming together for the community fish fry on Fridays. Basically, I miss my friends, I miss church, I miss competing with co-workers, I miss going out, I miss being part of a group, I even miss the polite chatter that two strangers often make in the grocery store checkout line that's backed up a mile long. It's just a lonely time to be an extravert! Thank goodness for gardening! It helps relieve stress - even if I do catch myself chatting to the plants.

    YOUTUBE IS THE BEST

    I LOVE YouTube! I taught myself how to crochet, get inspiration to do my own manicures, have my music playlists, listen to audiobooks, watch TED Talks, find recipes, just to name a few things I enjoy watching and learning from the app. I was able to save money be fixing my washing machine and my faucet. Lately, I have been watching award-winning animated shorts. YouTube opens a whole new world to everyone. It allows the world to come to our door and to see trends in real-time.

    Love

    To everyone, that word can mean different things. It also depends on whom in your life you are referring to. Whether it is the love for a lover, spouse, friend, family member, or child. You will love them differently and the same at the same time. Love is unconditional, love is comforting, love is communication and trust.

    Ketchup Warning

    I just laughed when I read that Garth. I feel the same way. My fiance puts ketchup on his ketchup (I even got him a t-shirt saying this). It is very frustrating when I spend time cooking and seasoning the perfect meal and without even tasting it; he puts ketchup all over it.

    YOUTUBE IS THE BEST

    YouTube is the best! I watch it several times a day. I now get current news updates, I watch church, educational videos, how to cook certain recipes, I listen to music, watch films, listen to audiobooks, watch DIY fix-things (last week it was the electric hedge clippers), end up being a great money saver that way too! I find myself using it almost more than Google lately. Easier for me to comprehend when I have a visual.

    Long Distance Relationship

    Long-distance relationships are very tough to maintain but if you truly love each other and want this to work you can. Don't let the naysayers tell you any different! Today with technology, it is so much easier to stay connected. With Facebook Messenger, Skype or Facetime you can see your loved one and their surroundings. You can experience things with them this way. Not like it used to be in the past with only phone calls or even before that with telegraphs. If you look through history, you know that even back then, "when there was a will, there was a way".
