Maw’s Friday questions week 146
-Asked by guest writer CMeyers

Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for?

What do you think should be the role of a former president?

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…)

What was the best monetary decision you’ve ever made?

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products?

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take?

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what?

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why?

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one…

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought?

Have a great Friday, weekend and rest of the year!

Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for? There are a few things yes. When I want to entertain everyone here, I'll reveal them laugh.gif

What do you think should be the role of a former president? An advisor to the current president. not necessarily to advise on policy which they disagree with, but other things you and I don't see every day.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…) The biggest one so no other fish can eat me.

What was the best monetary decision you’ve ever made? I can't say I've made many good ones, but selling Lucent stock before it became completely worthless was a good decision. And no, I didn't buy it it was given to me. LOL

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products? Very rarely

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take? The yacht

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what? no

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why? Are you saying Obama not going to get reelected? laugh.gif

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one… piano

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought? I don't have a particular age but I do want to live a long time as long as it comes with generally good health.

Thanks so much for the questions, CM. And you posted them in a timely fashion! What a great example. smile.gif

Have a great weekend everyone. Stay safe. ~Maw
******************


Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for? If there were enough space and time, I could recount the times where I said the absolute wrong thing and the absolute wrong time. Those stories would bring anyone to tears through laughter. I can't help it - my awful timing is a gift... I guess. blink.gif

What do you think should be the role of a former president? I like what Jimmy Carter has done with his ex-presidency. He wasn't a very good president, but he sure has helped out the world after he was done serving as one.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…) A great white shark, of course.

What was the best monetary decision you’ve ever made? Marrying Paw.

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products? Yes, I do. Once in a while, it pays off.

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take? I'll take the motor home. Boats are money pits - even brand new ones.

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what? Yes - If I told you, you wouldn't believe me.

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why? I guess any "lame-duckness" gives time for transition. Not much gets done during that time typically.

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one… A bunch of violins.

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought? I'll say 85. I want to live long enough to get to know my grandchildren. I can't wait to meet them. If they are 1/2 as awesome as my kids, I'll be doing ok.



--------------------
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for? yes...

What do you think should be the role of a former president? As the villian in the upcoming Batman sequel...think of it; George W. as the Riddler or...Bill Clinton as Two-Face Harvey...or even the late Ronald Regan as Ra's al Ghul.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…) Koi...just another excuse to be at Chinese restaurant...me like Chinese food...

What was the best monetary decision you’ve ever made? to allow Christ to be Lord over my finances

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products? Depends on the product I'm buying...

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take? the motorhome...cover more ground that way

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what? all the time...except none of them are mine...hehehe

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why? both are worse...the split Congress because they do nothing but bicker and the lame-duck Pres is more concerned with creating a legacy than effective leadership.

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one… Piano...so versatile in range and emotiveness

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought? I will live to be 100...which will pretty much insure that I'll outlive everyone I know...and then some. and of course to be recognized by Willard Scott the 3rd or 4th on the Today Show.

Maw's Friday questions week 146
-Asked by guest writer CMeyers

Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for?
My hair in my high school pics wacko.gif

What do you think should be the role of a former president?
Stay out of the limelight and write books. Here's your chance to explain your decisons. And if another administration requests your assistance with something, do it gladly but you had your turn so keep quiet. In other words, just what Bush is doing now.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…)
Dolphin, so I can get pampered and taken care of and do cute tricks that everybody loves.

What was the best monetary decision you've ever made?
I'll get back to you on that.

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products?
Never

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take?
Motor Home! wub.gif

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what?
None

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why?
Split Congress is better for the country IMO because they'll ballance each other out and one Party won't hold a monopoly on major decisions.

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one…
A clarinet can bring me to tears and I don't cry easily.

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought?
Ninety if I haven't contracted a major illness and am still mobile. Earlier if I can no longer take care of myself and it's the general concensus of my family that I should go peacefully or they'll do it for me. I'm not one for hanging around when I ain't wanted.

Great Questions, thank you!

Jesus is coming

A 25 foot great white shark...boy would I have fun at the beach lol!

Getting a job

Is there anything that you absolutely, certainly and without a doubt are sure of that many other people would laugh at you for? Yes. I think that Sasquatches (bigfoots) have the ability to open portals in the space/time contimum and are interdimensional beings by nature, and that is why finding evidence is so difficult.

What do you think should be the role of a former president? Late night talk show host.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…) Any type of whale.

What was the best monetary decision you've ever made? Not be a drain on society and pay off debt.

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products? Yes I have, but now consider them to be a rip-off.

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take? A motorhome, because yacht people...

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what? Yes, I invented the internet too.

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why? LD Pres. its good to have a strong pres, but it SHOULD be hard to get things through congress, that what helps ensure that only the better ideas are put into law.

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one… I was once severly beaten with a tuba, it made me sad.

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought? Nope. Probably don't want to get too old though, alot of times it seems the misery levels really spike there at the end...

The way I talk to our dog...like he is going to answer me.

What do you think should be the role of a former president?

Look at George Bush Sr. or Jr.; they have the "former president" thing down pat. Gentlemen and good will ambassadors for the office of the president and the nation as well.

If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Why? (If anyone says any type of whale you get banned…)
A-BIG-MOUTH-BASS.
Voracious appetite, will eat anything not bigger than themselves, puts up a great fight and hey...it’s got one heck of a big mouth.


What was the best monetary decision you’ve ever made?

Starting my 401k at a very young age. I could have retired 10 years ago if I wanted to live frugally.

Do you ever spend the money to buy extended warranty protection on products?

Almost never, no. In general it is a waste of money.

If I offered you either a nice yacht or a nice motor home for free which would you take?

Everything being equal, I would take the yacht. Less depreciation (or so I assume)

Do you hold any patents? If so, for what?

Um, no. Though I have invented numerous parts to make a 4th generation F-body qo quicker than normal. But no, I never patented any of them...

Is a split congress and/or a lame-duck president better or worse for the nation (regardless of which parties are involved) in your opinion? Why?

Yes. The government that governs least governs best. Look at the widespread destruction that this unchallenged government has accomplished in less than two years. The party in power had no one that could check their extremism and look what happened? Government mandated health care that the majority of the nation simply did not want. Yet it was forced down their collective throats regardless what the citizenry wanted.

What musical instrument draws the most emotional reaction from you? Voice seems like it should count in this one…

The violin.

Have you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to?

Some where near Methuselah’s age would be ok with me. smile.gif

If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought?

Not really in my hands...that is in Jehovah's hands. I do almost everything I can do to be as healthy as possible. But if Jesus were to return today I would live for ever....
So at the end of the day, it is not really in my hands how long I live.

Depends on what emotion you're goin for, violins can produce a somber mood, drums can get me motivated and any instrument played by Nikelback unleashes the furyHave you considered a particular age you plan to/want to live to? If so, are you planning specifically to reach that point or is it more of an idle thought?
