     Well, the NH Primary, the first in the Nation primary is over! Every four years New Hampshire residents are bombarded with "We have just a four question survey" or "Please support (insert name here) he is the best qualified" type calls. It is interesting to watch. It is also annoying being bombarded by so many phone calls.
     Today we move on to the Wednesday Hodgepodge. Given that Valentine's day is this Sunday, the theme of the questions is "LOVE." Thank you Joyce for this week's edition.

1. Create an acrostic using the word LOVE. If you're unsure what an acrostic is click here. 
    Love Only Validates Everything!

2. Does love really conquer all? Why or why not?
     Yes, I believe that it does. Insert 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13 here! Agape love, the highest form of love, the all encompassing kind of love is unconquerable in my humble opinion.

3. Tell us about a time recently, where you really put your heart into something.
     Nothing comes to mind!

4. What's your favorite fictional love story?
     Love Story? Really? I'd lose my "Man Card" for answering this question!

5. Do you generally wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your cards close to the vest?
     I'm a keep your cards close to the vest kind of guy!

6. What food says love to you? Why?
     Peacan Pie or Boston Cream Pie! It means someone loves me when they give me a Peacan Pie or a small single serve Table Talk Boston Cream Pie.

7. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.
     On Sunday our daughter and son in law celebrated our youngest granddaughter's birthday. When SWMBO arrived at their houseour oldest granddaughter yelled out "Pepere" and ran to me and gave me a big hug and a kiss on my cheek. I was tickled pink!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
     The Super Bowl is the first deth knell of winter. I am glad that Peyton Manning was on the winning team. The equipment truck is leaving Fenway Park on Wednesday enroute to the Red Sox Spring training facility in Florida. The pitchers and catchers report for Spring training in a couple of weeks, the second death knell of winter. Take heart folks, winter is on the way out! COME ON SPRING! ! !


  1. It's cold (relative term-ha!) here but no snow, and I'm not complaining. I'm excited for a southern spring. We never had much of a spring in the northeast, generally winter turned to summer with not a lot of in between. I'm looking forward to dogwood and azaleas in full bloom!

  2. Pecan and Boston Cream pie are both wonderful!!! Now I'm hungry :)
    Ed and I purchased the first of our garden seeds, on Monday. We're dreaming of spring, too :)

  3. I sure hope winter is, indeed, on it's way OUT! We have temps. in the 20's here in GA...and I'm not happy about it one bit. ;)

  4. I enjoyed your answers (always do). We have tickets for one of the spring training games. The Detroit Tigers train here in Lakeland and we always try to get to one game. We usually go see the Phillies, but this year friends are coming who wanted to see the Cardinals, so we got tickets for that game. It's always fun.

  5. I enjoyed your answers! C'mon, tell us a favorite love story! Haha
