Here's one I'll supply the answer to at the end of my post. Considering I'm a total "lefty", which American presidents were left-handed, hmmmmm?
OK. Here's my dilemma. Someone wants my blog address. Someone rather insistently and persistently wants my blog address. Someone I like just fine...but basically one of those ''on the surface'' kind of friends. Someone whose feelings I would never want to hurt intentionally. But still someone who I don't want to give it to. How do I deal with this diplomatically??? And it's my own dumb fault, anyway, since we'd had a long-overdue 'catch-up' email a while back and I happened to mention how much I'm enjoying blogging. Talk about opening my mouth and inserting my foot. **SIGH**
This one is a personal question for one of my readers. I'd asked once before quite a while ago if she'd send me her email address and I don't know if she didn't see it or if she's chosen to remain somewhat 'anonymous'. But I'm asking again because sometimes she leaves comments I'd like to comment to her about and I really enjoy reading everything she has to say. So, Greta...if you read this, please send me your email address if you feel comfortable doing so. Just mark it "Greta" in the subject line so I know it's from you. If I don't get one from you sometime this week, I'll just figure you'd rather still remain a little bit 'anonymous' and that's ok with me. I understand.
How much is too much and how much is not enough? My daughter sometimes says I put too much 'personal stuff' information out there. Do you think so? I don't know how many other women in cyberspace face the same problem that I have...losing your mother long before you go in to menopause and not having any older maternal relatives in direct line to 'compare notes' with as to what to expect. My mother was an only child and I am not the matriarch of my family at the age of 54. I have 3 brothers. No help there, obviously. My cousin Ginger is my mom's first cousin but her maternal line comes from my mother's paternal line and I've always been under the assumption my "female" genetics come more from my mother's maternal line. Am I right? Wrong? My dad's only sister has been dead for several years and she was adopted, anyway. So I have absolutely no help from female relatives that I can turn to. And so I plug along on my own. I know I've said in my profile I want to be as open and honest about what I'm going thru with my own menopause and midlife issues to help other women know they're not 'alone'. That is why I just lay it all out there, good or bad.
That's it. And here's the answer to the first question. Did you guess any of these:
I'd thought I'd read somewhere that George W. Bush is a lefty, too. Does anyone know? And 5 of these presidents have been amongst the past 11! Was Kennedy a lefty too? I think I'd heard he was ambidextrous. Anyone know about him?
