Leibster Award questions

These are the questions Life Lessons, Scribbles and Musings put to me, and my answers:

If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?
I would like to meet (but would not enjoy meeting) Adolf Hitler just to ask him – Why? What for? Do you feel any regret? Can I explain to you, in everyday terms, why what you did was so very wrong?
If you could time-travel, what time period would you like to visit?
I would like to see what it was like to live in a much earlier civilisation such as the Anglo-Saxon or Viking age in Britain.
What would your ideal day consist of?
A morning walk or run, time spent reading and writing, meeting a friend for a catch-up or a visit to a museum, real or virtual contact with my daughters and grandchildren, food cooked for me and music, live or recorded, in the evening.
What is the simplest thing that makes you smile?
A hug from one of my grandchildren.
How many times have you fallen in love?
Many times because I include the love which comes with the birth of children and grandchildren as well as romantic love.
What would be your dream job?
I wanted to be an archaeologist from a very young age. I took a different career path but it still seems like the perfect job to me and I’d love to give it a try.
Who do you look up to or who inspires you?
My friend Trevor who is one of the most fun, creative, loving, caring, intelligent and positive people I have ever met, and who has overcome more obstacles than anyone else I know.
What is your favorite season and why?
Spring. It’s the ever hopeful season heralding the end of winter and our first glimpses of summer.
What book(s) can you read over and over again?
I rarely re-read books but I have revisited Maus by Art Spiegelman several times. We must never forget the Holocaust and this book tells the story exactly as it was, in all its horror, but through a graphic novel.
Android or iPhone….which goes nicely with PC or Mac?
As long as they all work reliably and do what I want them to do, I don’t mind.
What is your all time favorite food?
My daughter’s Parmigiana which is sublime.
