Saturday 9 - Already Gone

Join in the meme fun right here right now! 
 If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) Eagles lead singer Glenn Frey proclaims that he's "feeling strong." How would you describe yourself this fine Saturday?  A lot cooler than I did this morning.  I don't do summer well.

2) The song begins with a rumor: "I heard some people talking just the other other day ..." Have you heard anything juicy/interesting lately? Please share:   My daughter did some baking recently and let's just say it wasn't quite the cup cakes I used to bake with her......but it made me giggle.

3) When "Already Gone" was popular, the news was dominated by Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal. What do you consider today's top news story?  My son brought down his previous night's glasses and rubbish without having to shame him into it!  Might not have made the papers, but it was a win for me!

4) In the 1970s, Eagles Glenn Frey and Don Henley were at the center of a social circle of very creative people, including singer Linda Ronstadt, singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and actor-comedian Steve Martin. How do you express your creativity?  With words too.  May it be for song or for verse.  A lot of this is aired through Blogger group, Magpie Tales, each Sunday.  We're always welcoming new writers and poets.....( hint hint ). 
5) Even though they broke up in 1980, the Eagles are currently on a reunion tour, and after knowing each other more than 40 years, Frey and Henley still consider each other friends. What quality to do you value most in a friendship?  Patience, trust, respect and humour.

6) Are there any mirrors in the room you're in right now?  Just the one on the fireside wall. I've a collection of lipstick kisses on it, one from each visit my daughter makes.  I clean around them very carefully.

7) What's the last beverage you drank with ice?  Diet Irn Bru.

8) Whole, skim, 2%, half-and-half, almond or soy ... what kind of milk is in your refrigerator right now?  4ltr of Graham's Semi Skinned.

9) Sam likes to mix sliced almonds into her salad. What do you think makes a good salad?  A little oil, some seasoning and a good old toss!

Saturday 9 - Yankee Doodle Dandy

I'm NOT a Yankee Doodle Dandy but.........I'll take the quiz anyhow! Happy July 4th to all my American visitors!

Join in this clicking this link!

1) This week's song was performed by James Cagney in the famous movie of the same name. Do you plan on going to the movies this holiday weekend?   I don't visit the cinema much at all - quite happy waiting on the pirate copy DVD!

2) Though known for his larger-than-life screen presence, Cagney was only 5'5". How tall are you?   I'm 5ft 4in, in my iffy little socks!

3) During the Revolutionary War, General Washington celebrated the 4th of July by giving his troops a double ration of rum. Will you imbibe any spirits this holiday weekend?   No - I'm not much of a drinker. I had a couple of wines last night, so that will do me for a good wee while.

4) American history was one of Crazy Sam's best subjects in school. In which class did you earn your best grades?  English, Music and Art  

5) The Fourth of July means we're in the middle of summer. Are you careful about applying sunscreen?  Careful?....I'm effing paranoid!  I burn so easily in the sun.  I get told I'm a bit of a misery guts but I'm rarely out when it comes to summer.

6) Mosquito bites can be a major summer annoyance. Are you scratching any itches right now?  I'm not, despite the Scottish midge being at it's annoyingly best.  Maybe hiding indoors works!

7) Emergency rooms report an increase in wrist injuries in summer, with people falling off bikes and skateboards and jamming their wrists catching hard-hit softballs. Have you ever had a sports-related injury?  I twisted an ankle at gymnastic practice once, many moons ago but nothing too bad since!

8) New York is home to Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest every year on the 4th. Will hot dogs be consumed in your household this weekend?  Sadly, no. We really only have them at barbeques or on kiddy request!

9) Atlanta hosts a 10K Peachtree Road Race every 4th of July. Are you a runner?  Hell, no!  I'm too top heavy for that!
