Saturday 9: Yankee Doodle Dandy

1. What is your favorite 4th of July memory? (If you aren’t in the U.S., then use your own national holiday.)

Ok – i’ll play here – even though I’m not American and don’t celebrate the fourth …. BUT …. in 2007 we spent the 4th of July in the states. Our 1st Fourth event was a concert and fireworks under the arch in St Louis on the night before – it was great – awesome atmposhere – but soooooooooo many people …. we ended up back in our rooms watching the fireworks from the window.

the next day we drove to Lincoln …. expecting something ‘big’ to be happening there … but no!! So our last stop was Pontiac – where we found a vantage point to watch the fireworks from … but it rained !!!  I did however discover fireflies – OMG … i was enthralled by them …. and we had a HUGE chocolate thick shake – i remember that too !!!

2. Do you consider yourself patriotic?

I love Australia … and yes i think i am

3. Do you like fireworks?

Yes – our big fireworks day used to be in June …. and was banned a number of years ago – I do miss having ‘cracker night’ in the back yard and i hate the big flashy fireworks shows  😦

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

I’ve been away … scrapbooking with freinds

5. Are you optimistic about the future?

Yes – for my own and the worlds … I’m hoping we can heal it

6. Do you think everyone should serve in the military?

hmm – tricky one there, I think a lot can be learnt by being part, but I don’t think people should be forced to

7. Would you support a constitutional ban on flag burning?

??

8. What end of the political spectrum are you?

well that depends … because i work in the community sector, my vote will go to the party who is ‘there for the people’ one who is less talk and more do …. let ME run the country  … I’ll fix it up !!!!

9. Where do you get your news?

TV mostly – and snippets online
I’m very bad at keeping up with world events – sometimes i like that … that i don’t know everything that is going on
