Answer time!

And here we go!!

And no, I'm not going to explain what the heck happened to the font. And that's 30 minutes of my life I won't get back from trying to fix it.

From Shelli Littleton: Do you like where you live in Canada now over British Columbia?

In all honesty? No. Vancouver, and the West Coast, will always be my favourite place in the whole world. There is a beauty there that is unmatched. The mountains rising out of the ocean, the beaches that go on for miles, the skyline at night...ahhhh.

But, we don't have 699,000 for a house. And that is the lowest price of a house in Vancouver right now. And it's a bit of a fixer upper.

From Amberawesomesauce: What's the ONE reason (starts with an A) that you are simply dying to go to Washington state, USA??? 

Anecortes, baby!!!  ;)

Also from Amber Perry: The era in history I'd love to visit? The waning days of WW2 in the South Pacific, specifically when the POW camps were liberated.

And one more from the high school chick...what piece of music would I love to sing in Carnegie Hall? Suo Gan. OR...The Revenge Aria from The Magic Flute.      

From Jennifer Stymiest: (mother of one the CUTEST little girls on earth) : Favourite Restaurant? Famous Dave's. Or...El Burrito Loco, when it first opened, before it got too busy.
Favourite dessert? Pavlova. Or cheesecake. 
Most adventurous thing you've done? Any of my trips to Bolivia!
Favourite place to visit? So far? Rome or Santorini.
City that's still on my bucket list? Buenos Aires, Argentina
Coffee or tea? TEA!
Baking or cooking? Ohhh, good one!! I'd say baking.
Favourite board game? Scrabble. My highest score is 543.

From BW: Favourite book of all time? Ohhhh!! Well,obviously the Bible, but fiction? Hmmmm. Too many to choose!! Courting Morrow Little is pretty darn close to the top.

Favourite movie? The Last of the Mohicans
Favourite actor? Wes Studi
Favourite actress? Cate Blanchett or Meryl Streep
On George Clooney's engagement? I hope they're happy, for the rest of their lives.
How did I meet my husband? I met the very handsome John E. Major at about 7:30 pm, at a softball game on July 28th, 1986.  
Is it true that Canadian chocolate is the best? Yes.

From Lori Benton: Think you'll ever move back to the West Coast? Probably not. It's way too expensive.

Will you please explain why you have produce around your neck? We were in a town in Bolivia and each kid in school made us a garland of flowers and vegetables. They weighed a TONNE!!! After we left the village, we gave all the food to one of our Bolivian colleagues and she used them to feed the poor people she worked with. 

From Andrew: How many Canadian does it take to screw in a light bulb? 2. One to do the work and one to check the score of the hockey game.


  1. Haha--what fun! Thanks for sharing, Jennifer.

  2. Um...George Clooney is engaged!?!?! And this was a fun answer time!

    1. Yes, he is. Can you hear the hearts breaking all over the world?
      And thanks!

    2. I know my heart was breaking.

    3. I think, BW, he was a fool to have let you get away.

  3. And Kevin would be monitoring the scores?

    1. HAHAHA! Yes!!! His wife is a "handyman" and Kevin is allowed to pass her the safe looking things like water and snacks. He is NOT to be trusted with power anything.
