The Questions from Sparks This Week:
Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?
My grandsons and daughter desperately want me to go for Android but I am an Apple kinda gal! I do still have a ‘normal’ laptop but my tablet and phone are Apple and I love them and will not change. I almost got myself an Apple Mac Computer when my Dell died last year but ……. Just too expensive! I’m regretting it but who knows if my current laptop doesn’t start behaving I’m going to ditch it, dig deep into the savings and get me an APPLE MAC.
What’s something on your personal bucket list?
I don’t actually have a list of things I want to do before I die. However, I do want to do as much as possible while I am in good health and have the means to enjoy what’s left of Life. So top of my imaginary list is SKI aka Spend the Kids’ Inheritance.
I made up my mind when I retired that I would not miss an opportunity to do anything adventurous if it presented itself – within sane reason of course! I’m NOT going to Skydive or Bungy Jump. However, although I dislike heights, speed and boats – I will go on a cruise, hot air balloon or anything else that challenges my comfort zone if I’m pressed.
The plan is to travel to as many countries as I can afford and also to indulge my passion for Eco- tourism but that is something I’ve done for many years so it’s not new. Birds are my passion so if I can go somewhere to see a new bird – I’m in!
What would you name your boat if you had one? The Unsinkable 3? The Please Don’t Sink? Your choice! Also, what would it look like? Do you want a motor yacht, a sailboat, or perhaps a dinghy?
I am not a boat person! But the love of my life is! He has/had a boat – it’s name was Kiora which means Point of Gold. Well actually he has had a few boats named that, the latest one he sold recently to a friend so it still lives in our boat garage.
The Ex-boat – Kiora
My dream boat would be a very large cruise ship. It would be very big and The Earl would be the Captain – because with him in charge nothing would go wrong. He would control a crew of well trained sailors and other staff and we would sail around the world with all our friends. The food would be amazing, we’d have butlers and ladies’ maids seeing to our every need, we’d travel on perfectly calm seas and the on board entertainment would be world class. The Earl would call it – New Horizons.
This is after all Share Your World Land so anything is possible!
Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?
Eeyore – I love him but he is so grumpy and unlike Christopher Robin and crew who tolerate him with the utmost patience I’d want to ‘fix’ him!
What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?
Funny you should ask as I have had this really happy feeling this week – Life Is Good. I spent 10 days away in the caravan in Knysna and with my rural family in Plettenberg Bay – how lucky am I to be able to just drop everything and do that!
What made me smile and laugh – My daughter sent me a photograph of a heron. Mom – It’s scary – I stopped my car to take a photograph of a BIRD – I’m turning into my parents! You see when she was a teenager she got extremely irritated when said parents stopped for every – little – bird – they – saw! So that me smile and laugh out loud!
