Hodgepodge Questions-Vol 125

Welcome to another week of random fun. You'll find this week's questions for the Wednesday Hodgepodge posted below...answer on your own blog then hop back here tomorrow to share answers.

1. May is National Blood Pressure Month...what sends yours soaring, either literally or figuratively? What calms you down? When did you last have your bp checked?

2. You just found $1-what do you spend it on? How about 10$ 100?

3. Mandatory labeling of genetically engineered (GE) food has been proposed, but not enacted in the US. How much attention do you give food labels before you buy? Are you in favor of labeling if it means an increase in food prices? Is this an issue you've been following and feel strongly about, or is this the first you've heard of the controversy?

4. May 15th marks the birthdate of Frank Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz. At this point in time, are you more in need of brains, courage, heart, or a trip back home? Explain.

5. "There's no place like home" is an oft repeated line from Baum's book. When was the last time you felt the truth of that statement?

6.  Steak...yes please or no thank you? What cut do you prefer and how do you like yours cooked? Sauce or no sauce? Besides your own kitchen, where's a place you like to go to get a great steak?

7. When was the last time you were in a genuine hurry?

8.  Insert your own random thought here.


  1. Ah the GMO debate - yes. I think food should be labeled - consumers have a right to know. We just heard about this last year when we started gardening in our garden plot in the community garden in hopatcong. We bought organic & non-gmo seeds. We already did organic but started hearing about GMO stuff- scary ya know! I do not buy anything in the store without checking the labels. My daughter is 3 and I refuse to buy anything with artificial colors, flavors, high fructose corn syrup, and we don't do fruit juice. Sounds strict but juvenile diabetes & obesity scares the heck out of me. So does pesticides - so we do all organic fruits. veggies, meats, and farmers markets stuff in the summer too! :)

  2. i actually checked it at walmart and it was pretty good on the second try--2.lottery ticked--ten tickets--wedding 3.not too worried about this--but want to know more 4.it's a toss up between courage and a trip back home--figuratively speaking 5.not sure maybe when my mom died almost 2 yrs ago 6.doing do steak much---but if it's tender i will eat it 7. this past Sunday 8.if you were a flower, which one would you be---always fun--thanks joyce :)

  3. I'll see you tomorrow too! sandie

  4. Great questions! As for food labeling, I'm on the fence. I want to know, but at the same time I don't want to know. LOL! And I didn't know May 15th was Frank Baum's birthday.

  5. May 15th, Frank L. Baum's b-day! I think I'd like a trip back home. Be back tomorrow!
