It’s All About Me


My friend Tony “Tone” Vega,of Tony Vega Dot Net, has nominated me for a Liebster Award. To receive the award, I have to list 11 random facts about me and answer a questionnaire with 11 specific questions.

Here Are 11 Random Facts About Me:

I’ve been such an open book on my blog and in my life, it’s hard to think of anything that would surprise anyone.


3. If given a chance to be invisible, what would you do?

Because I’m a writer, I would listen in on people’s conversations and watch their actions.


4. What is happiness to you?

Being in the moment and meditate on all that has been good in my life.

My daughter and my husband.  Any action I take I keep in mind how it can make a difference in their lives.

11.       What comes first, the egg or the chicken?  Explain the reason.

I have no idea because I wasn’t there when the chicken evolved.


There you have it. I hope you learned a thing or two about me.  Again, I thank Tone for nominating me for the award.  Tone describes his blog as “The Blog About Nothing,” but I must disagree. To me his blog is about everything. It’s not a blog with any niche so Tony just writes whatever’s on his mind. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny, always entertaining. Visit Tone’s blog at


Rather than nominating others for the award, I’m just leaving it up for anyone who’s interested to participate.  I would suggest it because it was fun.

    1. I always thought it was a strange song until I found out what the name is and then I thought it was perfect I love all things Nirvana

  1. I had lots of fun reading your answers. I definitely learned some new things about you as I’m a relatively new follower.

    I hate Stockton! We’ve gotten lost there during one of the hottest days of the year, and that place is Hell on Earth! That’s super cool your daughter is studying in England which is a place I want to visit so badly.

    1. When I first moved to Stockton all my employees told me it was an awful place to live and that I would hate it there. I dismissed their comments and told them I’ve lived in many areas around the country and I hadn’t found a city yet that didn’t have any good qualities. You know what? They were right. The only nice thing I can say about the Stockton is that it’s only 80 miles from San Francisco.

      1. LOL!!!!! I pity the fool who lives in Stockton! Just kidding…well, not really, but if anyone is reading this and lives there, I’m sorry! For real!
