Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.
1) Are you of Irish descent?
Yes. On both sides of the family (plush Scottish on my
mother's, and German on my father's). My father's father was an Irish
tenor in the waning days of vaudeville and I love all those popular Irish
tunes like "Molly Malone."
American Pie (about the death of Buddy Holly), Simon and
Garfunkel's "The Boxer" (about Bob Dylan), Elton John's "Candle in the Wind"
(about Princess Diana), "Hey Jude," (about John Lennon's son) and Annie's
Song (John Denver's salute to his wife). And whoever "You're So Vain"
We had salmon for dinner last night.
I do. Sort of. I'd like to meet one, but have
never had that experience, but I have had the experience of feeling
someone's spirit with me. The first time was after my friend Gilbert
died and I was driving alone on a very dark road. Suddenly I had the
feeling that he was with me in the car and then I could "feel" him leaving.
I didn't see any ghost, but I still believe he was really there. There
was also a time when we had our dog Toby put to sleep. I had my hands
on him and I could feel his spirit leaving and then things were different.
It was a weird feeling. Haven't had it with any other dog, though.
I watch Colbert every night, at least until the first guest.
Depends on who his guests are whether I watch the whole show. I don't
watch The Daily Show as regularly as I did when Jon Stewart hosted,
but I usually check out the opening monologue.
I can't say it's a favorite, but I do like it and will
be cooking it for dinner in my InstantPot on Sunday.
I usually only have one pair of shoes and wear them until
they wear out. They are Birkenstocks, so it takes about 10 years
before I start thinking about getting a new pair.
Green is a very good color for me.
Probably cough. I cough all the time, intermittently
every day. And I usually have one or two small sneezing attacks during
the day, one in the morning when I sneeze about 4 times and another one in
