I've been Tagged!!!

I have just been tagged by Margaret of Splendid Little Stars, http://splendidlittlestars.etsy.com/
http://splendidlittlestars.blogspot.com/2010/10/tagged.html  - this is the link to her blog!

She was given a list of four questions to answer. She then had to chose 4 people to tag – I was lucky to be one of her choices – so here goes!!!!

1. Do you like to travel? If so, where do you most like to go or what was your most memorable trip? If you don't like travel, why not?
I truly cannot imagine anyone not wishing to travel! When I was younger, my sister and I were lucky enough to travel all across the US with our grandparents. But I must admit my favorite and most memorable trips were my visits to India. Since I have been there a few times I have made quite a few friends there and of course one very special to me. We all traveled through South India visiting many ancient Hindu temples and Churches some many centuries old. I was also lucky to be invited as a guest to 2 different schools. At one school I visited each classroom and taught them songs that children here would sing, at the other school I was the Guest of Honor and even spoke to the audience in their language, Tamil. Can’t wait to get back there!

2. What is one of your most favorite books you've ever read?
3. What is a favorite family food you like to make?
As an avid reader, at times reading 2-3 books at a time; I only read non-fiction books, preferably historical biographies. Among the many I have read, I must put “Nicholas & Alexandra” - I have a whole collection of books on Russian history and the Tsars. My other favorites are “true crimes”. I am currently reading “Columbine” truly recommend it to anyone who wishes to find the true story being this tragic day,

3.  What is a favorite family food you like to make?
My family’s favorite food that they always request is spaghetti & meatballs – yes, I do make my own sauce. There friends even request that I cook enough for them also. I once made the mistake (I was in a hurry) of using jar sauce – my boys referred to it as “ghetto” sauce!

4. What do you collect?
I have a collection of miniatures which fill my miniature shelf. Also, being religious, I collect all sorts of angels which one will find all over my house. I really believe we all have our own little “guardian angels”.

HI Pam!

I don't like to travel :-)

I do collect angels though!

Have a blessed day!

Who ended up with the quilts from a couple of years back?

I'd love to go to India, but I'd be too shy to get up in front of a classroom... You must show us some of your collectables!

I'd love to try your spaghetti and meatballs! I like to collect angels too. I've always loved them and find them so comforting.

Thanks for tagging me too! Do we answer the same questions you did?

Pam, I loved reading your answers!
I love to travel, too! Mostly, I've traveled in the US. When our kids were growing up, we'd take them on 2 week vacations out West.
I've never been to India, but had a lot of Indian friends in my younger days. Your time in India sounds intriguing!
Any particular Nicholas & Alexandra book you like? Have you read any Jon Krakauer? In Cold Blood?
"Ghetto" sauce cracks me up!
I have a small angel collection. I was inspired long ago by my aunt's collection. One Christmas she let me help her display them. I remember a mantel with angelhair...
