ronnie said...


A lot of questions to answer. Well done you. Enjoyed reading your answers.

I love Kalamata olives but my favourites are the small Spanish Couchillo ones, love them in salads.


Aimless Rambling said...

I saw it and saved it too, but thought there were too many questions. I may borrow it too and pare it down some more.

Loved reading the answers.

Minielle Labraun said...

Love your answers! I think I'll use this too, but way pared down!

Hermione, as to question #23. Did you take dance classes. My answer would have been I did. I sure loved Latin dance numbers. And in my travels around the world, I did a mean Tango, in Argentina. A paso doble, in Spain. A rumba, and samba, in Brazil, A cha cha, and merengue in Puerto Rico, A Mexican Hat dance, of course, in Mexico. A belly dance in Casablanca in Morocco. A waltz in Vienna, Austria, An Irish jig, in Ireland. A hora, in Israel, and Zorba the Grecian dance in Greece.

abby said...

Great answers.....i saw 'Saving Mr. Banks"...enjoyed it. I am going to use these while i am away next week, but it will be in a few posts...

Cat said...

Lots of fun answers Hermione! I got a call from Microsoft Security Department also...he spoke with a heavy Indian accent and said his name was James. I laughed at him...called bs...said a bit more and hung up on him.

I've heard good things about Saving Mr. Banks...hope to see it soon.

Thanks for sharing.

Hugs and Blessings...

Hermione said...

Roz - I thought you might :)

Ronnie - I have never seen those olives here. They sound yummy.

Leigh - Sure, be my guest.

Minelle - Let's see who leaves the smallest number of questions when they post!

Six - Yes, I took classes in all three dance styles at a University summer course. You sound much more talented than I.

Terps - It did. Whenever I got stuck, I ditched the question.

Abby - It was a lovely movie. Several posts over a few days is good when you know you will be away and can schedule in advance.

Cat - I had another of those calls last night, from a woman speaking some foreign language until I told her I only spoke English. Then I told her I didn't have Windows and she had the wrong number.


Jon said...

OMG A Stan Rogers fan. I remember when I learned that his plane caught fire - perhaps in Indiana. What a voice. Fogerty's Cove. Northwest Passage. You've made me happy with memories and sad with memories. My heart's off to you, amiga.

Hermione said...

Jon - How wonderful to meet another fan! Garnet is trying to carry on the tradition, but he just isn't the song writer Stan was.

We have all of Stan's records / CDs, and I have his and Garnet's autographs on the Fogarty's Cove album.
