Wednesday Hodgepodge

This week I tried my first Wednesday Hodgepodge over at From This Side of the Pond.  Joyce asked, I answered:

1. The month of July was named for Roman Emperor Julius Caesar.  He's quoted as saying, 'Experience is the teacher of all things.'So, what has experience taught you lately?  
Experiences allow you to learn from both your successes and your mistakes
2. Where did you last 'roam'?
San Diego.  These days that’s about as far as I roam.  However, I have been to Rome, Italy.
3. Speaking of 'Rome', pasta, can only pick one, which would you choose?
Gelato.  When I was in Italy, I had it everyday.

4.  'Rome wasn't built in a day', 'All roads lead to Rome', 'When in Rome...' which 'Roman' idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain
“Rome wasn’t built in a day.” I believe good things take time.
5.  What's a movie you've seen or book you've read, that makes you want to book a trip to Italy?
Roman Holiday.  So romantic.
6. Walt's original Disneyland opened almost sixty years ago this week, on July 17, 1955.  Have you ever been to the California park? How about any of the other Disney parks around the world? What's your favorite amusement park ride or attraction?
Yes, we have Disneyland passes and go several times a year. I love Splash Mountain.  I love going on It's a Small World as a family.
On the carousel at Disneyland last year!  

7. It's that time of year...when were you last bitten or stung?
I can’t remember but the last time I travelled, I found a spider in my bed.  He or she didn’t bite me.
8.  Random thought:  I think little spiders are cute but big ones scare me!


  1. I haven't seen Roman Holiday for years. That might be a nice weekend movie.

    1. I like anything with Audrey Hepburn! Thanks for visiting Cranberry Morning.

  2. I'm not a fan of spiders, and would be unhappy to find one in a hotel bed. Shudder! So nice to see you in the Hodgepodge this week...enjoy your weekend : )

    1. Thanks Joyce! I hope to be by next week too.
