Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule?
I blog at all hours of the day depending on what’s convenient. I like morning best though. As I live on the opposite side of the world from many of you, I enjoy checking in first thing to read comments and make and see new posts. However, I don’t find it hard to write in the evenings or at night unless I am tired.
I have had to change my blogging schedule since Naomi moved here. I can’t always spend two hours blogging in the mornings or at night as I used to when I lived alone. I just do it when I can.
In the real world I am definitely more productive in the morning. I don’t want to be doing chores at night. I had to when I was working. Now I don’t.
What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven? If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in?
I don’t drive as you all know. The biggest vehicle I’ve been in. Well, I’ve been on a jumbo jet, I’ve been on Ovation of the Seas, one of the larger cruise ships (I think it was the largest when we sailed on her in 2018). I’ve been on trains with a dozen or more carriages and of course I’ve regularly travelled by bus.
If we are just talking cars though it would be Naomi’s Chrysler 300C.
What songs would be played on a loop in hell? (Suspend disbelief for this one, it’s cool not to believe in Hell, but let’s use our imaginations to answer. Of course, one can always skip the questions they find odd too. And yes, I took into account that individual tastes will influence individual choices.)
I feel like I’m listening to the musical loop from hell nearly every time I go to a shopping mall. They play the latest pop music. It all sounds the same to me I’m afraid. I can’t tell one artist from another unless maybe male from female. Even the cruise ships play this stuff everywhere and it’s almost impossible to get away from it. It is one of the reasons I only listen to the classical music station on the radio now even though I have to turn it off if there is too much opera.
My other “loop from hell” would be country music. Sorry, I know a lot of people love it. I don’t mind some. I like Bluegrass for example. It’s the whiny, “my wife left me and my dog ran away.” type songs that I can’t stand.
(Deep and chewy philosophical question): What does it mean to be a person? What constitutes “personhood?” (there may be some diverse opinions, but we’re all mature adults in here, so be respectful of others please).
I’m not actually sure what this question is meant to be about. Aren’t we all people? If you are a living human being you are a person.
Is it about when life begins? Conception or birth? I’m not prepared to get into that one. There are differing opinions about it and it raises the whole abortion issue. I don’t want to invite controversy when I’m not sure if that is what the question is about.

How were your spirits (mood) over the past week?
Better than last week, I think. I guess that after a while you just get used to terrible news and maybe become a little numb. I still care about the horrible things happening in Ukraine. I still fear WWIII. I feel so sorry for the people who have lost homes and family through the floods in Queensland and NSW. I am still anxious about the upcoming election which should be called any day. I still worry about Covid but I’m trying to live a normal life. I can’t be thinking about those things 24/7.
Daylight Saving is over for another year and we’re getting some cooler days, that’s nice despite the fact that the reverse cycle air con has stopped working. (Hoping it just needs a service).
We picked up our bulbs from the bulb farm ready for autumn planting and I got to take some great photos from Table Cape on the way.
I have finally been allowed to go back to my volunteer job at the local visitor centre. We’ve been to some car shows and Naomi is planning a cruise holiday later this year. She’s much better than she has been for ages so yes, my spirits are pretty good.
