Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post
9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other
times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random
questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and
leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate
rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
1) This song encourages little ones to celebrate Easter by
doing a little dance. Do you feel like dancing this morning?
I'm not sure I even feel like walking this morning.
2) Everyone in this video is wearing bunny ears. Target, Amazon and other
retailers sell bunny ear headbands sized for adults and priced at about $5. Will
you be wearing bunny ears, or perhaps a more conventional chapeau, this weekend?
Or, because of the corona virus, will your Easter attire be the same as any
I will definitely be wearing the same as every other day.
3) This week's featured artists, The Bounce Patrol Kids, are a children's
entertainment juggernaut: CDs, DVDs, downloads, and t-shirts. Additionally, they
often update their YouTube channel because they want children the world over to
have access to their upbeat, energetic songs for free. Besides the Bounce
Patrol, what's the last YouTube video you watched?
A Lamplighters classic

4) According to Forbes magazine, the average American household spends $20.66
on candy each Easter. Will you be consuming candy this weekend?
No. If it were not for the coronavirus, I would be getting an e\Easter box
from See's to take to my mother...and then share it with her, but I won't be
going out of the house...and See's is closed anyway.
5) The biggest chocolate Easter egg was made in Italy, measured 34 feet tall
and weighed a staggering 15,000 lbs. Do you thinks it's possible to have too
Actually yes. I love chocolate, but it is possible to over-indulge.
6) After chocolate, the top-selling Easter candy is Peeps Marshmallow Chicks.
They're so popular that, in 2018, they were the subject of a Jeopardy clue. Do
you often watch Jeopardy?
First of all, I never understood the appeal of Peeps. I do not like them.
But as for Jeopardy, we have been watching it nightly forever. It
gets recorded, so if we are not at home, we can watch later.
7) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. In a 2019 poll, jelly bean
fans responded that Jelly Belly Buttered Popcorn is their favorite flavor. Sam
is crazy about cherry. Do you have a favorite?
The Jelly Belly factory is near here and I've taken the tour a few times, so get
to taste all the oddball things. Pear is my favorite.
8) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that
generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or
Well, we had candy at Easter in my childhood, but in my adulthood, not at all.
I only eat candy on Halloween if we buy it for trick or treaters, which we did
not for years, but did this past year, with Ned and Marta here.
9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed
Knowing that in a 24 hour period of time I have gotten at least 6-8 hours of
sleep, even if it is not 6-8 hours in a row.
