Sunday Stealing. The TV Show Questions

March 18, 2017

The TV Show Questions

Thanks, you two Love Birds, you!  Give each other a hug, and take a bow.

We found this gem off a blogger called Christina from Call Me Patsy She states that she lifted the meme that "she's seen everyone doing". Not us however, until today. It was probably stolen by the author of that blog, as well. But that is as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Please "like" us on Facebook!

Cheers to all our thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The TV Shows Questions

1. Name a TV show series in which you have seen every episode at least twice:
Sorry, there just isn't one.  Maybe MASH but it was too long ago to be sure.

2. Name a show you can't miss:
Sorry there just isn't one.  Wow, now that's repetitious.

3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to watch a show:
Just one?  Dang...  That would probably be John Goodman.  I even like his voice overs for cartoon features.  But that site left one out that I completely 💘LOVE! 💗 It's called "What Planet Are You From".  It's a Mad comedy with Annette Bening, John Goodman and Ben Kingsley.  Just don't watch it with the kids. 

4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show:
Ben Stiller. 

5. Name a show you can, and do, quote from:
Now that would be Sesame Street, my friend.

6. Name a show you like that no one else enjoys:
Well, there's just me, Mr.Z and Wolfie. Wolfie will happily snooze through anything at all,  and Mr. Z. snoozes if I put on Gilmore girls.  

7. Name a TV show which you've been known to sing the theme song:
Back in the day, that would have been, "Johnny Yuma".

8. Name a show you would recommend everyone to watch:
The Kindness Diaries.  It's probably never been on T.V. though.

9. Name a TV series you own:
Ho ho.  Now that would be, along with tens of millions of other fans, "Downton Abbey".

10. Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium, but has surprised you with his/her acting chops in television:
Sorry, I have no idea how to answer this because I wait patiently to watch things when they finally get to secondary markets, like Netflix or Amazon Prime.  The whole of, "Big Bang Theory" I was willing to wait for in Netflix.  The newest ploy from the networks is to sell you commercial free shows for just $20 a month.  Three networks equals a whopping $60 a month for a lot of stuff you wouldn't be caught dead watching but now feel compelled to have your money's worth from.  What is that all about????

11. What is your favorite episode of your favorite series?
This is kind of going south for me.  I just haven't watched any TV series (except for Nature, Nova, and Masterpiece Theater) on any television channel for years.

12. Name a show you keep meaning to watch, but you just haven't gotten around to yet:
There isn't one.  Yes, I am eccentric, and a little dull, when it comes to Pop culture.  Sorry.

13. Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?
Can't remember anything that far back.

14. Name a show that's made you cry multiple times:
"The Gilmore Girls".

15. What do you eat when you watch TV?
We don't do that often, but sometimes we eat popcorn, which is yummy to do.

16. How often do you watch TV?

17. What's the last TV show you watched?
"Perry Mason" and it was ages and AGES ago.  Gee, I just don't know the Chronology of all these things.

18. What's your favorite/preferred genre of TV?

19. What was the first TV show you were obsessed with?
"MASH"  and there is a short lived show called, "Major Dad".  We all loved that show and couldn't wait for the next episode, but this was before Netflix so of course we had to.

20. What TV show do you wish you never watched?
"Johnny Yuma"  GAH!!  I wonder how many "Navajos" he dispatched while wending his way through that part of the country.  I think they were supposed to be Apaches but, dang, they were all too tall to be Apaches.

21. What's the weirdest show you enjoyed?
I'm getting mixed up.  Going to take a nap.  OK I'm back... Weirdest?  "Johnny Yuma".

22. What TV show scared you the most?
The X-Files.  For some reason, I thought it was real.  Duh!  Sometimes my gullibility level is astounding.

23. What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched?
"Laugh-In" absolutely hands down, the funniest.

Law 55. A singled fact can spoil a good argument.
Gee, that sort of ties in with what I'm reading right now.

The Wearin' 'o' the Green... Saturday9

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Go to HERE  to listen to the song.

Alone again, Naturally

1. Friday was St. Patrick's Day, March 17th! Did you celebrate with green beer or a green milkshake? 
No, actually.  I didn't.  I'm only 1/8th Irish and Mr. Z is 1/4th, so our kids may be more or something - how ever it works.  Elle had dark green eyes that were getting lighter green. Bee has green/golden eyes and red hair, and the twins have green eyes and red hair.  Some of my cousins were red headed, so I feel lucky, indeed, to have had light eyed kids.
2. Did you remember to wear green?  
Sorry, no.  I did not.
3.  What color do you look best in? 
4. This week's featured artist, Gilbert O'Sullivan, was born in Waterford, Ireland. Waterford is famous for Waterford Crystal. Do you have glassware that you save for special occasions?
Yes, but no Waterford.  Think:  Green Stamps..... who remembers those?
5. This week's featured song includes the line, "To think that only yesterday I was cheerful, bright and gay." How were you feeling yesterday?
Tentative.  I just found out some stuff that makes it seem like the World is sitting on a powder keg.
6. It begins with reference to a wedding that didn't quite come off because the bride left the groom at the altar. When were you most recently at church? Was it for a holiday service, a regularly scheduled service, a special event (a wedding or baptism)?
A Church, church?  Four decades ago.  When the two older daughters were in pre-teens.  It was a debacle, as women were never, EVER, to speak in this church.  I have never wanted to go to another church, church again, and just went back to my Quaker roots.
7. In 1971, when this song was popular, Malibu Barbie was a big seller for Mattel. This doll had a perpetual tan. For a human to achieve this, a tanning bed or self tanner is usually required. Have you used either method to give yourself a tan?
No, I haven't.  But all my Human "toons"in our MPOLG have great tans!  Very dark.  I don't tan easily.
8. In March, 1971, James Taylor appeared on the cover of TIME magazine. What's your favorite James Taylor song?
There are so many but I'll pick this one........
"Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them, oh yeah, don't you let 'em"

9. Random Question: What word or phrase do you hear yourself saying too often?
"Oh, Please God, help us."

Want to join in the fun?  Just go HERE  plus you can see the other participants' offerings.

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Sleeping Giants EU nails Breitbart

Starve out the Hatred and the Racist minority.

Money should not buy our Humanity!

This is for the Earth. Fridays will be like that from now on.

Every Friday I will try to give a wider audience to events or information which needs it.

Anything that happens within the realm of a Government that serves a small group of individuals to the detriment or degradation of our Wild Lands, in so far as they do not see Conservation and the re-balancing of our Public Lands as important,  I will post here, on Friday.

2.7 Million Animals Killed by Federal Wildlife-destruction Program in 2016
Ignoring Calls for Reform, Wildlife Services Continues Killing Coyotes, Bears, Wolves, Other Animals
WASHINGTON— The highly secretive arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture known as Wildlife Services killed more than 2.7 million animals during 2016, according to new data from the agency.
The multimillion-dollar federal program targets wolves, cougars, birds and other wild animals for destruction — primarily to benefit the agriculture industry. Of the 2.7 million animals killed last year, nearly 1.6 million were native wildlife species.
According to the latest kill report, the program last year destroyed 415 gray wolves; 76,963 adult coyotes, plus an unknown number of coyote pups in 430 destroyed dens; 407 black bears; 334 mountain lions; 997 bobcats; 535 river otters, including 415 killed “unintentionally”; 3,791 foxes, plus an unknown number of fox pups in 128 dens; and 21,184 beavers.
The program also killed 14,654 prairie dogs outright, as well as an unknown number killed in more than 68,000 burrows that were destroyed or fumigated. These figures almost certainly underestimate the actual number of animals killed, as program insiders have revealed that Wildlife Services kills many more animals than it reports. 
“Despite mounting public outcry to reform these barbaric, outdated tactics, Wildlife Services continues its taxpayer-funded slaughter of America’s wildlife,” said Collette Adkins, a biologist and attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “There’s simply no scientific basis for continuing to shoot, poison and strangle millions of animals every year. These cruel practices not only fail to effectively manage targeted wildlife but also pose ongoing threats to other animals, including endangered species and pets.”
According to the new data, the wildlife-killing program unintentionally killed 2,790 animals last year, including badgers, bears, bobcats, foxes, muskrats, otters, porcupines, raccoons, skunks, turtles and more. Such data reveals the indiscriminate nature of painful leg-hold traps, strangulation snares, poisons and other methods used by federal agents.
Earlier this month a young, endangered male wolf known as OR-48, died an agonizing death in northeast Oregon after taking the scented bait from a cyanide trap put out by the federal wildlife killers. The program’s brutality has fueled growing public outcry and calls for reform by scientists, elected officials and nongovernmental organizations.
“The Department of Agriculture needs to get out of the wildlife-slaughter business,” said Adkins. “Wolves, bears and other carnivores help keep the natural balance of their ecosystems. Our government kills off the predators, such as coyotes, and then kills off their prey — like prairie dogs — in an absurd, pointless cycle of violence.”
The wildlife-killing program contributed to the decline of gray wolvesMexican wolvesblack-footed ferretsblack-tailed prairie dogs and other imperiled species during the first half of the 1900s and continues to impede their recovery today.
