Happy National Hugging Day!

National Hugging Day is an annual event dedicated to hugging. It was created by Kevin Zaborney and occurs annually on January 21. The day was first celebrated on January 21, 1986 in Clio, Michigan, USA. The holiday is also observed in many other countries.  The idea of National Hug Day is to encourage everyone to hug family and friends more often.

Please ask permission to hug someone before you just run up and hug them!

Martin Luther King Jr Day 2016

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”

― Martin Luther King, Jr.

I love opals...which are also my birthstone.  I also like pearls and use to have my mother's set of pearls (my ex-husband broke the chain then stole the pearls).  I have been given several pieces of jewelry through the years with pearls and opals, I am just not sure what happened to some of the pieces.

9. What character on TV or in film is most similar to you? You can go with looks or personality. Or you can make a quip and go to the next question.  As far as looks, I say Bea Arthur.  As for personality, I say Drew Barrymore.

10. What's something weird you wanna do? It cannot be weirder than Mr. Watermelonhead.  Not sure if this is weird or not but...I would like to travel the United States and visit all the Presidential Libraries.

15. Would you rather have the ability to sleep for as long as you want, or have the ability to never have to sleep? I love sleeping but I miss out on a lot when sleeping.  So this is a tough question for me....but I think I would prefer to never have to sleep.
