If you could go back and visit any time period, what time would you travel to and why?

Oh, I’m not sure. I mean there are pluses and minus’ to every era. No toilets is one as Sheena pointed out. That I wouldn’t like. In many eras women were no better than chattel, so not sure I would do well in those. Some eras, women like me were tagged as witches. Look how that turned out! Maybe go way, way back, where women with certain ways about them were looked up to as healers and such. If I could go back and not have the bad and just the good I would go and visit every era in history, just to see what it was really like and not the whitewashed crap the history books feed you.

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?  This is a time for you to dream and have fun.

#1 would be to have my health back. No diabetes. Contrary to popular belief, 99% of diabetics don’t ‘eat’ their way to having diabetes. It’s usually because you have the genetic makeup for it. Which I do. Diabetes runs in my family. I’m part Native American, where it runs rampant. Sure diet has a lot to do with it, but I’ve always been careful how and what I eat. Got it anyway. Now it makes everything more difficult. Losing weight that I gained when first diagnosed and the dr tried to figure out what insulin and pills worked best for me.  Ironic huh? Get diabetes while at a decent weight, gain weight while trying to control diabetes and now having a difficult time losing the weight because of the diabetes. Yeah, fun times.

#2 To have enough to help some friends that I know need help. To be able to do things that I’ve always wanted to do.

#3 To be able to afford to buy and maintain a very large piece of land for a refuge for abused animals of all kinds. This place is somewhere where they could live out their lives worry free and be loved and taken care of.

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

I usually go for water first, coffee next or Coke Zero. But if I’m really thirsty water or iced tea is the way I go.

If you watch TV what are your favorite three television shows?

I very rarely watch TV. If I did I would watch NCIS, Grim, Murdoch Mysteries or a good crime drama.
