Share Your World – 2014 Week 20

Once again Cee from Cee’s photography has put together 4 questions to answer so people can have a chance to get to know their fellow bloggers. Thank you Cee!



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.

  1. One of the good things I discovered about studying history is reading a whole bunch of accounts of the same incident and then determining who is telling you the truth, certainly I agree with you about the history that is served up to students being sanitised. Health is a big one for me too and helping others. As for TV well, sport, the news, current affairs. I watch TV drama’s but on DVD, no adds! Enjoyed your post Jackie.


  2. I am with you on actual vs revisionist history. I shall save my specific thoughts for a soapbox post for another day 🙂

    NCIS has Mark Harmon…that’s all I know 😀


  3. Very interesting. Health is a big issue. Without it, everything is harder. I’m with you on the going back in time. Not interested. Have also thought about an animal sanctuary but won’t even get a dog because vet expenses can be overwhelming though I’m still thinking about it…hard. I saw a few of the Murdoch Mysteries on DVD’s from the library. They recommended them since I was a fan of Doc Martin. NCIS is one of the few I watch too. Character driven, always a touch of humor and not so much focus on the gore.


  4. The three wishes one is always tricky isn’t it. Health is definitely key, if your health isn’t good then everything else is difficult. I always feel I’m at risk of diabetes later, my maternal grandmother got it in her 60s, her mother had it (not sure from what age), so far my mother doesn’t have it though! I have low blood sugar too which can be a precursor to diabetes later so I’m careful with my diet, although probably not as careful as I should be!


    1. Yes the 3 wishes is tricky, one never knows what to wish for really. I got diabetes just about 6 years ago, so yeah, it’s a risk at any age. It’s a crap shoot Vanessa and I hope you never get it!


  5. I’m up there with the NCIS fans. And the diabetics. Mine is under control at the moment, thankfully. MS is enough to deal with without having the blood sugar issues included on a daily basis. As for having a time machine, I would love one. I would love to travel back to the late ’50’s and early ’60’s knowing what I do now, and stop myself from making the worst mistake of my life. Or maybe not. But it would be nice to visit the old days again, just so I would really appreciate the air conditioning and technology of today when things act up.


  6. I really enjoyed getting to know you a little better through this post, Jackie 😀 I love your line “…not the whitewashed crap the history books feed you.” So very true! 😀
