The Weekly Hodgepodge is Blinking 12:00.

Thanks to From This Side of the Pond for this week's questions.

Share one way you think the world has changed for the better since you were a kid?
Technology, definitely. The advancement in medical technology is also wonderful.
How 'bout one way it's changed for the worse?
The advancement of the "laptop gangster:" those conniving little cowards who hide behind fake names and avatars who say hateful nasty things that they would never say in someone's face.  Shameful.  Also, the fact that when I was younger, good Christians were considered "salt of the earth" people to be respected.  Now, it's sadly different.  For some, Christians are viewed as enemies.  Pitiful.
Starlight, starfish, starling, Starbucks...your favorite 'star'?
My favorite star? Craig Ferguson.  What?!  I try to be home and inside by dark, I've never seen a starfish or a starling in real life, and I've only been to Starbucks once...and I was not impressed.
Name a song that's overplayed, but you love it anyway?
Shout to the Lord.  There are 50 gazillion versions of this song!  The original by Hillsongs is the best.  I could hear it over and over again.

When did you last have home made ice cream? Your latest favorite flavor?
About two years ago.
What do you think is the best way to inspire or motivate people?
Live it; don't just say it.
When was the last time you were without power?
The power pops off and on a lot around here, so coming home to find my alarm clock and VCR blinking 12;00 is no big deal.  Yes, I still have a VCR.  In fact, I have two of them.
Insert your own random thought here.
Life wasn't simpler when I was younger; we were just BROKE!

UPDATE: Ok, I've been to Starbucks twice now...and I'm still not impressed.


  1. First time here. And I sadly have to agree with your commentary for the second answer. Your favorite star--ha! Good choice.

    1. Thanks. And welcome! I hope you enjoy the blog.

  2. Shout to the Lord is one of my all time favorite never gets old! Glad you joined the HP this week...have a nice weekend!
