  1. What is the most important meal to your day and why?

    I’m have 5-6 meals a day. Small and frequent feeding like a baby. So all of them are important when I’m hungry. Previously, I liked having a nice breakfast, someone else had cooked! I mean eating out! 🥹

    How many bananas do you eat a week or do you not?

    Haven’t had a banana for almost 3 months now. Due to my stomach surgery I was told not to have raw fruit or vegetables. I’ve just started eating salad, thinly sliced but no fruit yet.

    Do you think self-help books actually help or hinder?

    I never bought a self help book. If I need help doing a task, I look for a YouTube video. Or Google it.

    Should we all be more social and not enjoy solitude so much?

    We all should do and live how we want. If socializing is your thing, go for it. And if being by yourself is your preference, why not.

  2. I’m not sure that it translates to most important but for me breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love eggs cooked in a variety of ways with a breakfast meat ( bacon or sausage). Sometimes it includes cheese and/or veggies (omelet), toast and orange juice.

    I usually eat at least 4 bananas a day. A great midday or evening snack.

    If one really wants help, they can help.

    I think more people need to learn to appreciate solitude. With social media too many people have become dependent on constantly being connected. It’s not healthy.

    1. Hey Ruth, hope you are keeping well 🙂

      Interesting answers – are you a meat eater or an organic meat eater? I know longer eat any of the red, pink or even to a degree white meats.

      Mostly fish now, but l have been experimenting with alternative vegan meats in sausages – you know made from peas and so on.

      Totally with you on the appreciation of solitude more. When l created that question it was because a guy and l had a heated but friendly discussion last Monday – where l was saying that more people needed to spend less time being social and find a calmness in their own company whilst he countered with ‘introverts are destroying the world!’

      Well to say l laughed out loud was an understatement 🙂


      1. I’m a meat eater. Mostly our beef comes from a local farmer. Although they are not organic, they do graze in the field all summer long. Some of our pork come from him as well.

      1. Dinner, supper, whatever it’s called, it’s the last major meal of the day. We call it both things usually depending on where in the U.S. you happen to live. Even more complicated? Fizzy drinks can be soda, pop or tonic and it’s entirely regional.

      2. So you have it too. There’s a local accent and then there’s a REALLY local accent. Boston has at least four accents and you can usually tell where someone grew up by which accent they have. And which words they use!

      3. This is the original Henry Higgins from the George Bernard Shaw play “Pygmalion” which later became “My Fair Lady.” — it was “Pygmalion” with good music plus Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison (as Henry Higgins).

      4. Murdoch makes believe that EVERYTHING started in Canada 🍁 If you haven’t seen either of these movies, both are really excellent and “My Fair Lady” was a huge hit. The music never gets old.

      5. I watched “My Fair Lady” years ago as a child in the 70’s living in Australia and perhaps once more when l was an early teenager in the mid seventies one Christmas. My father was a huge AHepburn fan.

        I wasn’t a huge fan of the film, but preferred Rex in other films like Dr Doolittle [which is my own favourite], The Gost and Mrs Muir, The Yellow Rolls Royce and several others. I loved AHepburn in other roles also, but Fair Lady was just bizarre to me.

        My Mother was a big Harrison fan.

        It was only after you explained it that it made sense and l suddenly thought oh yes that Higgins 🙂

  3. What is the most important meal to your day and why?

    For me, it’s breakfast. It gets my day and me going.

    How many bananas do you eat a week or do you not?

    Probably 3. Bananas are an excellent grab-and-go snack in my world.

    Do you think self-help books actually help or hinder?

    I think they do both. They are a stepping stone; We live in a society where instant gratification is front and center. Reading a self-help book may help, but unless you’re willing to take the time and put in the effort to go deep, it won’t last.

    Should we all be more social and not enjoy solitude so much?

    People should do what makes them comfortable. I’m much more outgoing than my husband. He likes that about me, and I like his quiet nature.
