Social Hodgepodge

1. Spring is in the air (at least in my neck of the woods) and the birds are singing...what's your favorite bird? Hmmm, I like a lot of different birds, but I'm not a bird watcher, or lover per-se. I think that of the birds I actually know the name of Hummingbirds would be my favorite. The other day I saw the coolest thing ever, I actually saw a humming bird land and rest on my rose bush. I've never seen one stop flying before.

2. Speaking of birds...do you tweet? If so tell us your screen name and we'll come flocking to your Twitter site. Even if you don't let's all pretend here that we do-in 140 characters or less, sum up your week so far. Yes and no, I have one, but I don't remember the password, so obviously it isn't worth visiting.
Preparations for traveling seem to have taken over my world. PCS, birthday, youth trips, Oh my.

3. Its been reported recently that employers are not only viewing the facebook pages of potential hires but they're also requesting your facebook password to have a look at what you've kept from public view. What say you? I say that I will not allow that, not for my privacy but for my friends and family. Allowing my employer to access my account to research me is one thing, giving them access to all of the friends who trust me is entirely a different thing. I have a lot of friends who have blocked the most of everything about them from Facebook for very important reasons and violating the trust that they have put in me to keep their lives private isn't worth a job.

4. It's April and you know what that means-Major League Baseball is back in action. What's your favorite baseball movie? If that's too hard, what's your favorite sports themed movie? Angels in the Outfield.

5. Something else this season brings-asparagus. Yes please or no thanks? If it's yes please what's your favorite way to have it prepared? Yes please, in any way you want to serve it to me. I even like it canned and cold, which I can't say for any other veggie.

6. What drives you? (Don't you love how I sandwiched that one in between asparagus and jugglers???) Hmmm, I don't know. Strange, I know what doesn't, but I can't tell you what does.

7. April 18th is International Jugglers Day...can you juggle? No, Not for lack of trying, mostly for lack of the ability to catch well.

8. Insert your own random thought here. As you can tell from my tweet, we are getting ready to travel a lot, I'm really excited. The hubs is going to California with a group of more than 20 middle and high schoolers with our church and that's awesome. The girls and I get to go to Flagstaff for a girls weekend for a Tea Party and my Mom's birthday, then we will be at less than 40 days until we move. It's coming up fast.


  1. Good luck with your move and all you have going on. It's a busy time of year even without a move! Enjoy your 'girls weekend' too!

  2. Ooh, hummingbirds - good one! We saw the most beautiful ones when we were in Sedona last summer! Got a great picture of one in flight too... love my new camera!

  3. Girl's Weekend sounds so fun! Hope you have a blast and hope your pcs goes smoothly for you!

  4. Girls weekend...yea!! I live in sunny CA and i am sure your DH will have a blast. I teach middle and high schoolers and love that age group. Good luck on the move.

  5. Enjoy your girls weekend! sounds like fun!

  6. Humming Birds are so beautiful too! I think that you did see a rare occurrence, but I guess that they've got to stop sometimes. Though a rosebush is probably not a place I'd pick. lol Have fun in Flagstaff!

  7. I LOVE Flagstaff....beautiful, beautiful area of AZ. No matter what season. I know you're going to enjoy that trip. For sure, for sure. You made a good point about the employer vs. FB password and friends and family privacy issues. EXCELLENT thought.

    Oh, our humming birds are landing and flitting and landing all the time around here. They are truly fun to watch. Just the other day, I was watching the MALE do his courting dance...he flies up high above the female [who, by the way is perched on a branch] and he does the figure eight over and over and over. They're amazing.

  8. Employers demanding passwords is so far over the line, IMHO. It infringes on everyone's privacy and I shudder to think where they will demand to go next if this is allowed.


I love to hear from you!
