Biology

What’s algebra?

Lol I can appreciate some of it, though sculpture I find more difficult to understand/figure out.
6. Most enjoyable book?
Ugh too many! Return of the King (LOTR), Dune (book 1), The Silver Chair, C.S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy…it just goes on and on. Bunch of stuff by Margaret Atwood (my Canadian Idol, lol)

No. Sadly.

Australia, all over Europe.

Not having enough ‘alone’ time. Being interrupted or having to repeat myself.
11. What’s your GO TO switch to make you feel better on a gray day?
A hot cup of coffee. Nothing fru-fru either. Simple, strong coffee with cream NOT milk.

Again, big thanks to Glendon Perkins for this unique recognition, and congrats to all the nominees! I hope those reading this post will check out your awesome sites. 🙂
