Waiting for Tonight

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak.

We love to answer the questions, however, and here is today’s questions!

Saturday 9: Waiting for Tonight (1999)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Jennifer Lopez anticipates a night of unbridled passion with the love of her life. What are you waiting for tonight? (No pressure; it doesn’t have to be as thrilling as hers.)

Putting on BritBox and see what happens
2) She sings that she’s glad she’s beyond those nights that found her tossing and turning alone in her bed. Did you enjoy restful sleep last night?

Yep. my husband came home from the hospital last night. Rest was easier.
 3) Whatever Jennifer has planned for tonight, it won’t include alcohol. She never drinks liquor. What’s the last adult beverage you enjoyed?

Hmmmmmm probably a Mikes Lemonade… years ago.

4) Ms. Lopez performed “Waiting for Tonight” during last year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Will you be watching The Big Game this weekend? 

I doubt it.
 5) Speaking of this weekend, The Weeknd will headline the Super Bowl 2021 halftime show. Are you a fan of his?

Im not familiar.

6) Super Bowl Sunday is the #1 day for guacamole consumption in the US. When did you most recently eat something with avocado in it?

I had avocado on my turkey sandwich today.

7) Chicken wings are a popular Super Bowl dish, too. When did you most recently eat chicken? How was it prepared?

I buy those roasted chickens, with the chicken pulled off. My husband was in the hospital all week so the dogs and I had that

8) This year, fast food chain Chipotle will run their first-ever Super Bowl ad. Do you pay closer attention to commercials during the Super Bowl?

I don’t watch the SB

9) Random question: Are you more likely to pretend to be more naive than you really are, or more sophisticated?

Depends. Our world is changing so fast, and seems these days, I am truly stupid, oops I mean naïve.

Awe…

In awe once again how the Lord works…have had some things over the last several months especially that I have been concerned about, praying about, and shared with several sisters in Christ my concern over and they are praying as well. God is so amazing to put right in front of me exactly what I need to hear. As I checked emails this morning I noticed my devotional had come across…i always delete it on here because I prefer to use the paper version I have. So, as I went to delete it, I noticed the title and it was exactly the topic of my concern and prayers lately. So then I decided to read some other verses written specifically to believers in Jesus Christ and our treatment of one another. No matter our age, circumstances, what goes on in our lives with our brothers and sisters in Christ it is necessary for us to remember that they are exactly this and nothing can change that-ever! We will spend eternity together praising the Lord. Here, at this moment, the way we interact with each other is so very important because look what He says about the way we handle situations and relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ:

2 Peter 1:5-8 For this reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance, and to perseverance, godliness, and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. And another: 1 John 2:9-10 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.

As I read this I thought, wow, “hate” is a strong word…then I read some notes I had written in my Bible a long time ago. Hating a brother could mean this: “unconcern, dislike, being cold, not reaching out to help”. Some serious thought for the day and a reminder to keep praying for myself and my brothers and sisters in Christ to love each other so we don’t hurt the Lords name…no matter what.

Bills, Bills, Bills

Welcome to Saturday 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules.We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme.

BILLS, BILLS, BILLS (1999)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about a cheating boyfriend. Unlike most songs, where the lover deceives by seeing another, this one squanders his girl’s financial resources. She sings that he’s ruined her credit. Do you know your credit score?

Yes, I do. I watch it carefully

2) How often do you pay your bills? Do you handle them as they come in, or do you pay weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Or are you lucky enough to have someone else handle your bills?

I am fortunate to have the most amazing husband that pays the bills the day they come in. I was that way when I was single, but its nice to not worry these days.

3) Destiny’s Child had a hit with “Bills, Bills, Bills.” This girl group got their start in Houston, TX. During the recent, bruising storm, lead singer Beyonce sent food, money and water to her home state. Have you spent much time in the Lone Star State?

Well, when my then second husband and I moved to CA from OH, we went through briefly. Just enough time to eat at some big steak place that the dinner was free if you ate it all. He did. It was gross!!!

4) Beyonce is the breakout star of the group and went on to have a highly successful solo career. Can you think of another star who began his/her career as the member of a group?

Jennifer Nettles

5) “Bills, Bills, Bills” was performed a cappella by the kids on Glee. That Fox show ran for six seasons. Were you a fan? 

Not really

6) In 1999, when this song was on the charts, SpongeBob SquarePants premiered. The show remains popular among the younger set. Have you ever seen it?

I am an AUNT OF THE YEAR…. who lives in a pineapple under the sea… 🙂

7) SpongeBob has become an industry, spawning movies, a Broadway musical, video games and both coloring and comic books. Once considered children’s amusements, today coloring and comic books enjoy a following among adults. Have you recently enjoyed coloring or reading a comic book?

I didn’t really enjoy either as a kid, so…

8) Also in 1999, Walmart expanded to the United Kingdom. Do you shop at Walmart?

I get my Grace’s medicine there, so once a month I go. I don’t really shop there. Our Boardman Walmart is horrible.
 9) Random question — We’ve all met people who aren’t exactly as they present themselves. Are you good at spotting a phony?

I was married to a sociopath for 4 years. I hardly trust anyone anymore, because I can REALLY spot them!

Walking on Broken Glass

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here is today’s questions!

Saturday 9: Walking on Broken Glass (1992)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) Annie sings that she feels she’s walking on broken glass. What’s the most recent item you broke?

I have some stoneware dishes that are aging. I picked up a small plate from the hot dishwasher and CRACK!

2) She sings about being cut until she bleeds. Tell us about a time you needed stitches.

wOW… like forever!

3) This week’s featured artist, Annie Lennox, was born on Christmas Day. Do you know anyone whose birthday falls on a holiday?

Jimmy Buffet is a Christmas baby!

4) When Annie met Dave Stewart, with whom she’d form the duo The Eurthmyics, she was living in Australia and staying in a tiny apartment called a bedsit. The occupant has his/her own combination bedroom/livingroom with cooking facilities, but must share a bathroom. Tell us about one of your early apartments.

My first apartment was in New Castle PA. HUGE apartment in a HUGE home. Fireplace in the bedroom, stained glass windows in the bedroom and bathroom. OLD OLD OLD but so cool for a first apartment. Oh, by the way, it was in the ghetto!!

5) After the Eurythmics broke up, Annie went out on her own. Would you rather work independently, or as part of a group?

Independent. all the way

6) Among her many honors, Annie Lennox was named chancellor of Scotland’s Glasgow Calledonia University. What’s the last college campus you visited? What brought you there?

National University. It was a for profit not very good choice, but I couldn’t walk a campus anymore! But, I did graduate

I love it.

8) Also in 1992, Johnny Carson made his last appearance as host of The Tonight Show.  The catchphrase, “Here’s Johnny!” was associated with the show. Can you think of another popular TV catchphrase? 

Lucy, you have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do!!


9) Random question: Think of your past week. Now look ahead to the coming week. Would you like it to be more, or less, exciting?

ALTRUISM. A Chapter on Something I Know NOTHING About… but will by the end!

ALTRUISM. A Chapter on Something I Know NOTHING About… but will by the end!

al·tru·ism

/ˈaltro͞oˌizəm/

  1. the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.

“some may choose to work with vulnerable elderly people out of altruism”

Altruism is characterized by selflessness and concern for the well-being of others. Those who possess this quality typically put others first and truly care about the people around them, whether they have a personal tie to them or not.

What is the problem of altruism?

Charles Darwin regarded the problem of altruism—the act of helping someone else, even if it comes at a steep personal cost—as a potentially fatal challenge to his theory of natural selection.

            Okay, so altruism, is it a positive or negative thing. This really interests me because I was referred to as a true “altruist”. So, now I need to research to check out if they were being nice to me, or snarky. The first definition made me smile, but, that went downhill quickly!  So I did some research using quite a few websites, to find out if I am actually a good person, or a big phony!

I found this on thegreatergood/Berkley hoping the liberalism of Berkley was not within this meaning. “Altruism is good for our bottom line: Studies suggest that altruists may reap unexpected financial benefits from their kindness because others will feel compelled to reward their kindness; other research has found that donating money to charity might make corporations more valuable.”  Financial benefits? You should see my checking account!

Further research: Is altruism a form of egoism?

Altruism, in other words, does not exist. … This third form of psychological egoism would admit that sometimes one of our reasons for acting is the good we do for others for their sake; but it claims that we never act for the good of others when we think that doing so would make us worse off.Aug 25, 2016. https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/altruism/

            I’m starting to feel like the worst, best person ever!! Maybe it’s the influence of all this political correctness updated, which will never let me feel that I am, in some ways, a good person. Or, maybe I’m not! Onward HO!

            There is a very interesting article on www.positivepsychology.com on altruism. It is called “What Is Altruism in Psychology”. It’s a good read, and I am going to highlight some things from this article without plagiarizing the author Jeremy Sutton PHD. I have contacted him about using pieces of his article in my book.

            So, now I am a bit conflicted on my altruism. Me, I think being a kind and helping person, with no financial gain, to ‘atta girl’, no name in lights, comes from your heart. I think being a decepWhat Is Altruism in Psychology? 8 Inspiring Examplestive person, doing things for self-gain, for ‘atta girls’, for your name in lights, so to speak, comes from a dark part in one’s soul. Is this from reading and research? Yes and know. Dr Jeremy Sutton, in his article What Is Altruism in Psychology? 8 Inspiring Examples, one chapter wraps it up in a nutshell.

 Pure Altruism: A Philosophical Take

Effective altruism Acts of altruism not only include those to help another or improve their wellbeing, but also to reduce their chance of being harmed.

For example, taking extra care driving near a school does not directly benefit a child, but reduces their potential for harm (Kraut, 2016).

And yet, life is messy, and often so are our motives.

The driver may be acting altruistically by taking care around the school, while also showing some self-interest. They are perhaps driving slowly to avoid accidents and possible reputational damage or to escape a ticket for driving too fast.

Pure altruism occurs when there is a single motive.

If the driver’s only goal is the safety of the children, with no benefit to themselves, then the behavior is considered purely altruistic.

            So, in your life, when you perform an Act of Kindness, is it out of pure kindness, or out of what good could the outcome be if you do this? I must admit, I don’t know of very many people that are out looking for a pat on the back, or a recognition in the papers for the things they do! In our world today, if you are the one performing criminal acts, as opposed to the one keeping the world in order, the criminal gets better press than the ones that put their life on the line every day, in order to keep order. The ones out there fighting for goodness in our world, and the ones out there who are on the front lines every day, protecting, healing, loving, giving of themselves to the vulnerable, we never hear about them!  We never hear how Doctor So-and-so, risked his life to save another. On the streets, overseas, in Afghanistan, in the hospital. But we hear over the top about this one or that one that was in the wrong but things went terribly wrong. I am a proponent for Wounded Warriors and Tunnels to Towers. Avoiding politics and policies, I want my altruistic tendencies to show kindness. I want to believe that not everyone is out for something selfish.

            It’s often been said that it’s better to give than to receive, but did you know that this cliché is actually backed by research? While many of us feel too stressed and busy to worry about helping others with their burdens—or would like to think about doing good deeds when we have more ‘spare’ time, energy, and money—altruism is its own reward and can actually help you relieve stress.

Altruistic acts can improve your quality of life in several ways and are absolutely worth the effort. Here’s to the majority of us ‘being in it for the good of others’!!   

https://www.verywellmind.com/benefits-of-altruism-3144685

So, to all of my Altruist’s out there, let’s keep making people’s lives just a little bit easier! Here’s to ALL of the unsung heroes!

Thought Provoking Questions

Hi! I’m your host Bev Sykes of the blog “Funny the World“. . Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. Is it more important to love or be loved?

I don’t have an answer to that. Maybe love, because its not so important that anyone love me. My husband and my family love me and for me, that is all I need.
2. If you had the chance to go back in time and change one thing would you do it?
I would have finished college before getting married. I still wish that I could have been in law enforcement. That was what I really wanted to do with my life.
3. If a doctor gave you five years to live, what would you try to accomplish?
I think I would like to spend time in places I thought I would love to have lived. 
4. What is the difference between innocence and ignorance?
Wow, this one is tough. Innocence is just raw emotion. And ignorance, is a choice we make to be. I  pray that I would never be ignorant.
5. What is the simplest truth you can express in words?
People need the Lord. It makes living so much better knowing that GOD is with us, always
6. What gives your life meaning?
Feeling that SOMEONE needs me. Even if its just my dogs. 
7. Can there be happiness without sadness?  Pleasure without pain?  Peace without war?
These things I do not know.
8. What’s the one thing you’d like others to remember about you at the end of your life?
That I showed them kindness. 
9. Is there such a thing as perfect?
IF there is, I haven’t found it.
10. What do you love most about yourself?
That I feel at ease with most people.
11. Is it more important to do what you love or to love what you are doing?
To me, they are the same thing. 
12. What do you imagine yourself doing ten years from now?
I can’t look that far ahead. I would have never thought I would fall in love over again with my husband. I never would have imagined the life I had in twentyten.
13. What small act of kindness were you once shown that you will never forget?
I was really in a dark place in my life, I can’t even think about how hard my life was, and the desire to just stay in bed. I had  20 bucks. I needed dog food and gas. I went to get both, while I was at the gas station, with a hoodie over my head and just wanting to get back home to the dogs and my bed, a dear friend spotted me. Hair not brushed, wasn’t showered, hadn’t brushed my teeth or even gotten out of the house in weeks. He came and talked to me, we prayed together, he told me about the church he was going to and invited me. He cared when I didn’t even WANT anyone to care. God put him right where I needed him. 
14. To what degree have you controlled the course your life has taken?
I could lie, and tell you 100 percent. I lived against the wind and chose to do it that way. But in the big picture, God had my back all the way. I have been in some messed up situations, but through it all, God let things always work out to where my life wasn’t threatened. AND it should have been… more than once. 
15. If you looked into the heart of your enemy, what do you think you would find that is different from what is in your own heart?
As I sit here tonight, I cannot even THINK of someone that would/could be my enemy.  I have lost/pushed a few people OUT of my life, and don’t want them back, but I do not feel that they are my enemies… they just didn’t belong in my life anymore, or they hurt me more than enough times to turn my back. But no enemies. 
Thank you Lord. 

Two Divided By Love

Two Divided by Love

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Two Divided by Love (1971)

Unfamiliar with this week’s song? You can hear it here.

1) Sam’s teacher told her she’d use math every day. What’s the last math problem you solved? (Did you add to/subtract from the balance of your checkbook … use division to figure out how much you’d save with 25% off that sweater …)

Yesterday, I multiplied 2.5 x the amount the recipe suggested.

2) The lyrics tell us that if you take away the rain from a flower, the flower just won’t grow. Do you have any indoor houseplants? Could they use a drink of water this morning?
I have a ton of indoor plants. They could possibly all use a spritz. They are close to the fireplace, they always get misty holding my hand. 

3) This week’s artists, The Grass Roots, are introduced in this video by country music superstar Kenny Rogers. Who is your favorite country music singer?
1. Old Dominion  2. Lady A and you know my usuals…Kenny C and Jimmy Buffet
4) The two unmarried members of the group — guitarist Warren Entner and drummer Ricky Coonce — competed for a lady’s affection on a 1968 episode of The Dating Game. Neither of them won! She chose Bachelor #1. Anyway, have you ever appeared on a game show? Do you know anyone who has?
No, but 2 of my cousins were on the Price is Right. One was discovered in LA and it boosted is acting career! Geeze I miss him. He has a wife and baby now…
5) The Grass Roots were originally called The 13th Floor. They chose this cheeky name because many high rises do not have a 13th floor since 13 is considered an unlucky number, and they were thumbing their noses at superstition. Are you superstitious?
Sometimes… when it comes to my mom’s death I am
6) At the time of his death in 2011, group leader Rob Grill was still playing music, touring with a reconfigured Grass Roots. His widow Nancy referred to him as “one lucky son of a gun” because he’d been able to support himself as a musician, doing what he loved for 45 years. In what ways do you consider yourself fortunate?
Remarrying my first husband after 15 years
7) In 1971, the year this song was released, Walt Disney World opened in Florida. The Epcot Center was added in 1982. Have you ever visited this, or any, Disney theme park?
No, BUT… when  I worked in Santa Ana I passed Disney in Anaheim everyday.

8) Fresh chicken was just 43¢/lb. in 1971. Do you prefer the breast or drumstick?

breast. bone in. crispy. with mashed pot, gravy and buttered corn.

9) Random question: Do you work well under pressure? I truly work best under pressure. All of my years in food service trained me well.

Saturday 9: Waiting All Day for Sunday Night (2012)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) This week’s Saturday 9 has a football theme because there’s a big game Sunday. Will you be watching?
Probably not. My husband holds the ‘clicker’ and I write! He might glance at it, but he won’t watch.

2) The Super Bowl is a big day for food consumption in the US, second only to Thanksgiving. What’s on your menu this weekend?
I don’t plan that far ahead!
3) The NFL has decreed that the Super Bowl will never be played in a city that has a median February temperature of less than 50º. Would your hometown qualify for the Big Game?
Nope. And if it required sun… hahahahahah we haven’t seen THAT in ages!!
4) This version of the NFL theme song mentions the Steelers and the Broncos. During the regular season, which team do you root for? How did they do in 2019?
The Cleveland Browns! (sorry Stac!!)
5) This version of the Sunday Night Football song is by Faith Hill. She also has ties to the MLB, since her husband is Tim McGraw, son of the Mets’ pitcher Tug McGraw. Which sport do you prefer — baseball or football?
I love them both! And of course, both from Cleveland
