1. You bake and decorate cakes, why don't you like to eat cake?

2. Dream Vacation?

3. What kind of car do you drive, what do you wish you could drive?

1. You picked a good one to start off with GB. My favourite memories were once we moved to BC from Saskatchewan (I was almost 8) I got to meet my paternal Grandparents for the first time. I would spend 2 weekends a month with them and my Grand Mom (and she was) would take me to interesting places, she would teach me how to make things (my favourite was turkish delite, she made the best I have ever tasted). She had a friend who taught me beading and another who got me interested in cake decorating. Pop was great too. He took me fishing with him a couple of times and I always caught ones bigger than his. He taught me how to play crib....I never beat him though. I really miss them both.

2. Oh, that is a hard one because Music is my favourite song. But if I had to pick just one, it would have to be Niel Diamonds "I Am I Said" I knew the feelings of being torn between two places (Saskatchewan and here). A close runner-up is "I Don't Know Much" because it is one DH and I relate to.

3. Well, as I said above, my paternal Grand Mother had a huge influence on my life.

1. That's an easy one - I bake and decorate them . I just find them too sweet. As I am testing out recipes and tweaking them for my uses, I have to taste them and it has become too much of a good thing.

2. Hmm, right now just getting away would be a dream. But I want to travel to New England, partly to see how beautiful it is and partly to trace my father's family. His paternal grandfather came from Quincy, near GB's neck of the woods and my Dad and Grandfather new nothing of his past before he came to Canada. I have since found out he had a brother and want to see the area and whatever else I can find.

3. Dad just gave me his 1995 Pontiac Sunfire and DH and I have a 2008 Chev Aveo. I like them both for different reasons. But I would love a Dodge Grand Caravan. It is high up and I could cater an entire wedding out of one!

Likewise, my friend! We are hoping we might be able to get away some time next year.

PF, I love your state. When I was back in Regina in the late 70's to early 80's I got down there quite a bit. My aunt and cousin and I would go shopping or just for a break. I would love to meet up with you too!
