Questions from Joe Mazello's bitch.

Bohemian Rhapsody - What matters to you more than anything in the world?
That a child, born anywhere at all in the world, would have a chance to live a happy and productive life, and have a sufficiency of all good things.

Don’t Stop Me Now - What makes you feel unstoppable?
I'm determined to be brave.  That is something that matters to me. 

Another One Bites The Dust - What one thing would you wipe off the face of the earth?
Greed driven anything but especially aggression.

Under Pressure - How stressed are you currently?
Yellow alert

We Will Rock You - What was the last concert you went to?
Christmas two years ago...Hawaiian Slack key guitar and some ukulele. The Concert was in a beautiful little church in North Park.

Somebody To Love - Are you looking for somebody to love?

We Are The Champions - What achievement are you most proud of?
Raising my daughters to be brave and caring, and truthful.

Radio GaGa - What do you think of today’s popular music?
I like some of it, and I like Lady Gaga.  
I really liked Justin Timberlake before he got popular, because I love Acoustic guitar, and he can sing and play so well.  I guess I just don't like over-amped music and "BIG Flash", that is, other than the 70 and 80's Rock Bands.  

I Want To Break Free - If you could move to any part of the world, where would you want to live?  Above Point Conception, along the bluffs of the California coast.   

Love Of My Life - Have you ever had your heart broken?
Yes.  Life does that to you, if you live long enough.

Killer Queen - What is your favourite thing about yourself?
I can draw anything?  The thing I don't like is that I did nothing with that talent.  Had I done so, I think that my daughter B, who is an artist with three times my abilities, didn't do much with her art.  Though she does work in CAD, and is incredibly creative.

The Show Must Go On - What is something you will never give up?
Being honest about most things.  I could never tell a little kid they were were dying, say.  

Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Name some of your favourite musicians.
Jean Pierre Rampal,  

And then there are, Angel Romero, Pépe Romero, Andres Segovia, Julian Bream
Les Paul- Brian May, Les By Himself, and not the best sound but amazing... Chet Adkins, my idol as a kid*, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Pete Fountain, Yo Yo Ma, With Katheryn Stott on Piano.....and others, but that's enough for now....  Let Yo Yo Ma play through to the other offerings if you like because it's tremendously beautiful.  Heavenly, if you will.....

Who Wants To Live Forever - If you could be immortal, would you?
No.  Even though it's well known that the First Hundred Years are the Hardest, no thanks...
Not on Earth anyway, and not separated from my family.  Out Amidst the stars somewhere, and as an Eternal being?  Yes...

Fat Bottomed Girls - What are some traits you look for in a partner?
Kindness, Good sense of Humor (without resorting to mean teasing), fidelity, a good Father for children.

I Want It All - If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?  Ok, I'll think big. I want a billion dollars, tax free.  

*On this You Tube there is a comment I'd like to share with you...

I need to get a guitar like the one Chet's playing here, because my guitar doesn't have any of those notes on it.  Believe me - I searched, but they're not there."


  1. Good morning, Zippi! What a sweet, gentle soul you are. I love your big heart. :)

    1. You are very kind to say so, and I do try to keep a steady course. As you've no doubt noticed, I have a temper. Impatience is the handmaiden of vitriol. ;o)

  2. I love a good acrostic guitar in a song! Have a great Sunday!

    1. The guitar is my favorite instrument. I'm glad you enjoyed the videos. Thanks it's been a sweet one. Have a lovely week, and once past Monday's staffing drama, that everything goes smoother.

  3. I love Lady Gaga and JT too! They are both so talented.
    I would love a billion dollars too! Wouldn't that be great? Loved your answers! Have a nice day!


    1. Thanks Lori. Glad you enjoyed the post. And, yes, a billion little dollar bills would just about cover all my causes, and there would be some for to the kidlets for their futures.

  4. I love your eclectic list of musicians!
    Anywhere above the coast of anywhere (especially California or Oregon) would be a glorious place to live!

    1. Thanks Bev. My mother was a singer and whistler and she had all the Dorsey Bro stuff, and the Big Bands. So, my musical loves go way back into the 40's. And yes, anywhere along the coast of Oregon or California above Pt. Conception would be terrific in my eyes, too!

  5. Love your answers. I wish I had been encouraged to be artistic by my school teachers--my kindergarten teacher crushed my artistic sense.

    That guitar comment is too precious!

    1. Oh, my! It's terrible to have that happen to you, as a teacher is pretty influential! Well, until the grades 7-9. A lot of those kids are so tough they make teachers cry!
      Yes, that guitar post on the Chet Adkin's site was a scream! Love it! Glad you did, too.. :)

  6. I would like to be able to jam with you sometime. :-)

    1. Sweetie, I'd be happy to hear you play, and I will listen. My thumb doesn't even wrap around the neck anymore. lol My only hope is for the Ukulele. ;)

  7. That billion dollars tax free sounds good.

    1. Thanks for your visit. 🙏🏼 A lot can be done with a billion dollars, tax free. Think of how far it would go if it went as an endowment to some very well run but but struggling charities that feed people, or protect children and other earthlings. Wouldn’t it be cool?
