  1. Awwww ☹️💔 sorry to learn of Ashley’s passing – I think WordPress leaves a legacy because she wrote her words. They forever be here 😊

    Very sad news ☹️

    To your questions:

    What ways are you adopting to save on energy bills? Wearing more clothes still at home!! – driving less – I am always energy efficient though – turning off lights and things

    Are there too many TV channels today offering too much content choice and do you struggle to find something to watch – discuss.
    Well I don’t pay attention to crap and TV went to crap a long time ago. I do not buy satellite or cable … nothing … I have discovery plus which has all my documentaries , science shows, home improvement and 90 day lol ✌️😉😄 Once in BLUE MOON I like a show ✌️😘… however if is good show Hollywood will step in – throw money at it – and then it will suck… I used to love tv … now only some

    How often do you read, watch, or listen to the news on the average week? When I am in shower … I time it with the news lol ✌️ and I get tiny glimpse of what’s happening – lol – ahhh the habits we form lol

    What would you say are five important life skills people should know?
    Well that would also depend on how someone wants their life to be…
    1.) how to have strong spirit cause you never know what can happen
    2.) how to have social or people skills – not everyone has social or people skills, but it can aide you in ways.
    3.) how to adult – an important skill
    4.) how to be self sufficient – will aid you in life
    5.) learn from life – hear, speak and see

    When at school how often did you complete your set homework?
    Mostly always – unless sick or sports

    What don’t men understand about women and what do women want men to really know about them?
    Men don’t understand about women ?? Hmm 🤔 I don’t know what they don’t understand? 🤷‍♀️

    What do Women want a man to know? Know how to be confident but not asshole and how to love a woman ✌️

    What do people want from life?
    Who knows 🤷‍♀️ that is too wide of a net type question lol

    What is your most comfortable pair of shoes and why?
    🤔 I have these cushy black shoes for work that are dressy looking but feel like slippers ❤️ self explanatory – “comfort” lol

    If your favourited colour wasn’t available what would be the next colour you choose to wear on your head? I have 3 favorite colors to choose from … purple is favorite … but also green and blue.

    What are your Top 3 worst smells or scents?
    1.) Skunk 🦨
    2.) dog poop 💩
    3.) death ☠️

    If you could spend a whole day in Disneyland with anyone – living or dead who would it be and why?
    Well Disneyland is small … meh… not that great and lots of traffic … I am east coaster – MUCH prefer Disney World ❤️ is own city practically – you could spend an entire month or more there!! So much things ❤️ so I would pass on Disneyland – meh – does not have same magic as World 🫤… too expensive for tiny shit … but Disney World – I’m down!! Who would I want to go with? Umm 🤔 well if I could have time with my mom without Alzheimer’s … I would choose my mom … if I could have her like before for just little while. ❤️

    Are you a Halloweener and if so how and why and if not, why not?
    Used to be … not now. Because is really just another day. Also my holidays were very difficult once so… it’s just time I wish to be quiet – I do like Halloween things though – I do not currently have dress up spirit and I decorate very minimally – although there is one Halloween thing I just always love ❤️ … carving pumpkins 🎃 ❤️ that part I love

    What job did you want to have when you were a child growing up and more importantly did it ever appear as an opportunity in any shape once as an adult?
    I wanted to be archeologist lol … umm well I do deal with human remains so does that count? 🙂

    1. I think your job is pretty darn close to being an archaeologist. Funnily enough l also wanted to dig around relics and remains when youger.

      Good life skills l agree and yes, l think you are right about what women want a man to know too.

      My three scents were skunk, Durian Fruit and Hot Bokashi – basically in a roundabout way the same as yours.

      1. I think men can’t see the woman beyond her looks and take her at face value. Not all men obviously but many.

        That women are human too and want respect and to be treated as individuals and not objectified all the time and that they are perfectly capable of being the person they are.

        I don’t believe women are complicated like l have seen some answer and others just think or believe. Women are no more complicated than men, but they do have l think a higher emotion scale than men and because of this men think they are vulnerable and need a man’s help all the time.

        Women can do everything they set their minds to as much as men, but there is nothing wrong with wanting to be a woman and to look feminine but it doesn’t mean they are frail as some men believe.

        Men simply need to understand and have a basic understanding of not just women, but other people aside from themselves.

        All people need respect and all l think a woman wants is to be heard, listened to, respected for her feelings and her beliefs.

        That’s what l think. 🙂

      2. I think you are correct

        For my answer I was gonna say: because men think with the wrong head and can’t get past that.

        Yes you are pretty correct … women are not complicated – maybe some … but not all – I think the world is very different in this era though

        And yes on higher emotional scale … women were more accepted to show emotion, where men were not.

        Women give life… NO WAY a man could handle that!!! – that’s why god gave that to women lol ✌️ we strong 😘

        So again – as long as they can process thoughts with the correct head – then maybe there’s a chance they be decent ✌️

        Sex is fine – but you do not lead in with that …and they better make sure they on that page before jumping to it!!

        So yeah basically you are correct and said quite nicely 😊

Strangely enough Sadje, wrote very similar to what you have written here … Women give life… NO WAY a man could handle that!!! – that’s why god gave that to women lol ✌️ we strong and l was so impressed with what she wrote that l have it as an inspiration piece this week on the social posting.

      4. Why you not carve pumpkins 🎃 ? Is fun… you can be creative and then use for your compost 😊🎃

        I love carving pumpkins ❤️ I haven’t in few years, because of life… but I still have all my tools lol ❤️👏

        Is probably my favorite part of Halloween 🎃 ❤️

      5. I used to love so much – but Halloween not a thing to me anymore 🤷‍♀️ not currently

        I no longer dress up … if I am with my brother and his family I dress up ❤️

        They all up in it … so I join along ❤️

        But not here – my kids are grown and only my daughter is still into dressing up

        I am older now

        I am little on bah humbug side lol

        I have a young worker who is soooo full of holiday cheer reminds me, just a little, of the innocence of “Elf” ❤️❤️ “One” of my favorites

        You don’t have to need to carve but is fun and creative – easy decoration!

        Also pretty cool to check out your masterpiece all lit up 🙌

        Plus you get yummy seeds from it … and that’s just as fun!!

        It’s awesome – you would love it 😊

        Is also a making memories thing so is fun in that aspect also 🙌❤️

        I bought special lights this year so I wouldn’t have to use a candle … just incase I decided to carve one. I didn’t have the time with everything ☹️

        But the lights are cool … I can make flicker like a candle or strobe or change colors lol … pretty cool!

        Maybe next year. We see … takes time and effort lol

        Every year is different now 🤷‍♀️ every moment is!

        So we see

  2. Ashley’s death is a great loss. I am very much affected by her death for some reason. It has been a long time since someone I cared about died. The circumstances make it more tragic.

  3. Here’s my contribution: https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.wordpress.com/2022/10/29/coffee-time-with-rory-10-29-2022/ I had a good relationship with Ashley and am shocked. I knew she was very depressed, and this past year had been really bad for several reasons. Not to seem ghoulish, but was it suicide? That makes it even more depressing, because it shows me that the black dog (see Winston Churchill for the reference) is always there, lurking and waiting for the opportunity. What a sad, sad day. I’ll miss her dearly.

  4. I did not get to know Ashley, but I have lost several blogging friends and it never stops hurting. I always expect to see them show up in comments or write a note. But that’s happening in “real” life too these days. It’s one of the (many) perils of age.

      1. Yes and more than that, parts stop working. You reach a point where you don’t want any more surgery. The surgery and long hospital stays take more out of you than the illness. I’m pretty much topped out on surgeries. I don’t even remember how almost all of them were serious. I’ve got a lot of replacement parts including heart valves. I’m pretty much done with losing pieces. As long as I last, I will last. The only surgery I’ve consented to — in advance — to replace the battery in my pacemaker because that’s relatively minor. But that’s it. One and done.
