Wednesday Hodgepodge



1. What is something about living in this country that you value? 'This country' is whatever country you call home.
So many things...education is available to all, opportunities and freedom.....choices!

2. What is a favorite something you own that is red, white, and/or blue?
I'm a theme girl so after 9/11 I have a whole Americana room which is our bonus room in this house. Lots of  red,white and blue decor and I love them all.

3. Do you fly a flag at your house on patriotic holidays?
I need to get one, I just have little flags I will put in my flower boxes. I love seeing a flag flying.

4. What ingredients do you think should be included in a great picnic basket?
cheese and crackers....wine of coarse or bread and cheese and wine....chocolate too!

5. What is one interesting piece of trivia you know? Interesting is of course a relative term.
Omg....it's early my brain is asleep still! I got nothing!

6. Wednesday, May 24th is National Escargot day...have you ever tried them? Eww or ooh?
No and No way I totally dislike slimy things!

7. What is one thing you know for sure?
My family loves me...and that I'm blessed!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think Americans have such patriotism and fly flags all the time. When we lived in Germany the only time I saw a flag flown at someone's house was during World Cup soccer. My Canadian neighbor had to beg his wife to fly the German flag ...she said it just isn't done! But it was amazing to see during  a Soccer Tournament the pride ,flags on cars and houses it was unreal!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!! Please stop by Joyce at From this side of the Pond and join the Hodgepodge today!

I think sport is where alot of the European countries show their National Pride....I loved all the World Cup hoopla-a whole country cheering for one team made it feel so big. You couldn't help but get caught up in it.

Enjoy your day-the sun is shining here-yay!!

Oh my, what a great picnic you have packed! It's been so long since I wasn't more concerned about bringing sippy cups and kid friendly food. I would love to bring bread, cheese and wine!

Isn't it funny about the flag thing when it comes to sports? Ireland was the same. I've always admired the patriotism of Americans and I love to see all of their flags flying off their verandas and such. In Canada it just isn't the same - most only come out on Canada Day.
And I could really enjoy a picnic right now :)

My daughter has played soccer since she was seven years old. I get the soccer thing. The only other time I've seen a lot of patriotism is when the military gets into another war. Then you really see the flags waving.

BTW, did you know that the women's world cup is this summer? Be prepared to see more flags!

Your picnic food would go very nicely with mine! I enjoyed reading your HP answers.

Interesting info about flag flying.

I tried escargot once and only once. I was too shy at the time to say I don't want it! xo
