Thanks to Joyce for hosting the hodgepodge...

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino? Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?

I understand math and thus have a concept odds - so that answer is no.  For example the odds of winning Powerball in the USA is approximately 1 in 175 million.  The Huffington Post ran a great article on things that are better odds.  You can find that article here.  So no, gambling is not my thing.

2. Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick's Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried...your favorite way to have potatoes?

I do like corned beef on rye.  I may making a point of having one of those sandwiches for lunch.

3. What's the last thing you felt 'green with envy' over?

A person who gets to have a vacation alone with their wife.  I would love to have two weeks off enjoying life with her.

4. What's at the end of your rainbow?

A good happy life.  Is all I can ask for.

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945). Anne's diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi's during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time. Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal? Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?

My blog really works as my journal.  It is interesting to see how it has evolved over time.  One of my goals this year to do my week in pictures.  I think it will be fun to see how my year evolved in that fashion.

6. What's an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?

A picture of a rainbow.

7. Write a limerick with you as the subject. You can do it!! Just remember this is a family friendly blog...don't make me get out my wooden spoon. 

If I can not do a "There once was a girl from Nantucket" limerick then I won't.  Limericks are supposed to be a little bit bawdy and tawdry.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I found this great infographic yesterday searching the news and it got me thinking whether online reviews actually have any impact on my purchasing behaviors.  For me, I think they have minimum impact but for others I think that they can be truly influential especially for young or inexperienced consumers.  So what I want to know is; do you think online reviews affect your purchasing of travel products?
