Meet Me On Monday

I stumbled on a post with a linky thingy for "Meet Me On Monday". I tried to go back to find the path I had followed so I could give credit to the blog that introduced me to the link, but evidently some Internet birdy ate my crumbs! Isn't amazing how one can get 'lost' on the Internet?! I sometimes feel like I am a skipping stone - moving from site to site. Anyway, it looked like fun so I took down my original Monday post and responded to the questions posted by Java, who writes,

"Blogging  is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read  and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is  this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want  to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great  way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!"


1.  Do you have a fireplace in your home?
Yes! I have a gas fireplace in my current home and have one that divides our great room in the new house.

When we bought the house the fireplace didn't work. The furnace guy tried and couldn't get it to come on either. So, we called in a fireplace specialist. I am embarassed to admit that the problem was caused by dead batteries! Whoever installed the fireplace never had a transformer installed. The starter was only battery operated. Ugh! But...the good news is, we can have a nice fire now! 
I love the smell and crackling noises of a real fire, but I do enjoy the convenience of flipping a switch and turning a fire on or off (now that we have the batteries installed)!

2.  Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes on this one, too. I learned to drive a Volkswagon - at that point in time VW's didn't have automatic transmissions. Currently I have a Prius... sadly, no stick!

3.  How many computers are in your home?
Ones that work? Three. I also have a tablet with a broken connection at the power supply. If I could get that to work (since the battery bit the dust long ago - hmmm, do you see a pattern here?!) I'd have four. Oh, wait, I forgot that we have my son's desktop computer downstairs. I think it works. We also have an iPad...not sure if that qualifies for 'computer' status....I guess it should!

4.  Are your taxes done yet?  Do you do them yourself?
Is it April 15? Just checked the calendar, nope...not done until the last day. Even then, we usually file for an extension. I hate that type of work. My hubby hates it, but he does it. He is a master procrastinator!

5.  What is your favorite meal of the day?
All of them :-)
Any meal that has been prepared by someone other than me!
