I Won The Liebster Award....YAY!!!


After a little over a year of blogging I FINALLY won something.   YAY!!!  I would like to thank Veganopoulous, Blogger, my parents, and well....ME.  The Liebster Award is one of the most PRESTIGIOUS awards, so I am starting off winning something BIG!!!  I would like to thank  the Academy of Bloggers Arts and Sciences. 

There are a list of 11 questions that one must answer after winning the Liebster Award, so I will jump right into that now.

1). If you had the choice to travel either forwards or backwards in time (one way trip), which would you choose and why?  

I would definitely go forward in time.  I firmly believe in the Golden Age of Enlightenment which will lift humanity out of darkness.  The world will be a place where only love exists.  Wars is a thing of the distant past and people are walking the earth as fully engaged Christ beings.  Get me there right now!


 2).  What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?  

I once worked for a company where my co-workers were some of the  most evil people I ever met.  I enjoyed what I did for a living, but the people I had to work with made the environment extremely toxic.  The experience stressed me how daily and I developed stress related eczema.  


3).  Describe an outfit you had as a child which made you feel all super special important.  Photos if you got ‘em. 

 It is too challenging for me to pick one out since I loved everything that my Mom bought for me and made me feel special.  I picked this photo below to scan and post for this question because it takes place during my very first Christmas in the United States of America.  I had just immigrated to the USA  from Panama a few months before with my family, so it was also my first winter.   In the photo I am holding my baby doll.  I am wearing a dress which is actually tucked into my snow suit pants.  We had not long returned home from being out in the winter snow and I did not take the snow pants off yet.  The dress was actually very pretty. 
 

No cracks about how old the picture is.  I was born somewhere between 1900 and 1972.


4). Say you formed your own nation.  What are three of your laws?   

- All electricity and gas to heat your home is FREE
- No one is allowed to speak in negative terms, EVER.
- Animals shall never ever be used as food.


  5)What is the theme song to your life?   The Candyman song sung by Sammy Davis Jr.

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with choc'late and a miracle or two
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Now you talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes

Oh, who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
Yes, the Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man
Candy Man, a-Candy Man, a-Candy Man

6).  What shoes would you love to wear but can’t (for whatever reason).  What is that reason?  

I can actually wear any type of shoes.  I have great feet that I take care of with bi-weekly pedicures.  I usually wear flat shoes though.  I used to wear heels all the time, but not so much anymore. 

7).   What’s one thing you wouldn’t ever eat, even for a million bucks?  

 Red meat.


8).   Describe the worst hairstyle you’ve had.  

It wasn't so much a hairstyle.  I colored my black hair auburn many years ago and it came out fire engine red.


9).   Which is the greatest ABBA song ever?   

I don't know because I never listen to them singing.


 10).  Think of a family tv show you watched as a kid.  Which character did you have a secret crush on?  You’re disqualified if your answer is Phillip Drummond.  Bonus points if it is a parent character.     

 I had a crush on Steve Frame from the soap opera Another World when I was a little girl.  Actor George Reinholdt played the part.  Steve Frame was an early day Jasper Jax.  He was very rich and suave.  I was delighted when Steve fell in love with Alice Matthews.
  

 George Reinholt.
Mr. Reinholt is 73 years old as of this post.



11). You have a magic wand (or magic baguette, or something).  You only get one turn and you must wish for something that improves the world somehow.  What would you wish for?

The raising of the consciousness of all humanity into Christ Consciousness.
