The World Is Full Of Wonderful Bloggers

Oh the people that you meet when you’re walking down the street. Those are lyrics from one of my favorite Sesame Street songs! (Don’t laugh)!

More important are the people that you meet when you’re surfing the blogosphere. I want to give a shout out to all the nice people that stopped by last Sunday for the Community Network Meme. It was a good idea and I hope we can continue or even expand upon on it — did you hear me Tom?

Everyone who left comments for me and spent time visiting this old raggedy site, I appreciate it muy mucho! To the great sites I visited, please come by and see me sometime. It was both fun and a learning experience.If you were not a part of this meme, contact Tom Baker and let him know you want another one. I know he’s got a stash of things in his mind just waiting to get out.

Community Network Meme


1. If you could interview anyone on your blog (alive or dead) who would you chose and why?

I would like to interview Jesus just before He started His ministry by turning water into wine. I think I would ask if he was nervous or apprehensive.

2. What do you feel is your strength as a blogger?

I think honesty is my strength. I am not going to share everything about myself, but the things I choose to make public I will be honest about.

3. Can you share a little bit about yourself that you have not already mentioned on your blog?

I wasn’t going to mention this but my husband James was the one who chose the  URL (sybianuser) of A Rose Is A Rose because he had recently purchased the Sybian machine for us.

4. If you were forced to change the name of your blog, what would you change it to? Why?

A Blogger’s Life because well it is mostly about my life with James and the rest of my family.

5. What do you think is the most fulfilling part of being a blogger?

Sharing thoughts and experiences with people I would have NEVER come into contact with before the internet.

6. What would you do with your last day if you found you had only one more day to live?

I would spend it in service to others, then with my family and then in prayer talking to the creator of the universe, whom I am about to meet face to face!

7. You’ve been doing medical research for decades and have finally found a cure. What was it that you found a cure for and why did you choose this particular ailment?

Diabetes is a disease that can cause lots of other problems so I would cure diabetes.

8. What is your most guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is my Sybian machine and the great pleasure I get out of it with or without my husband! But, mostly with him. Maybe I will make a post about it.

9. Answer only one. What is your favorite book, movie or TV show?

All time favorite movie is Ever After. This is Drew’s best performance and a most clever idea for a movie.

10. What do you think is the very best smell in the world? The one smell that can take you back to a time and place of a very vivid memory in your past?

Vanilla and bacon. Not separate but the two smells together. It reminds me of Sunday mornings when I first started cooking for my parents.

* This is my first meme but I found the questions to be more thought provoking than the usual ones I have seen. Good job Tom.
