    I haven’t met many people who said they don’t like chocolate; how sad that is to me. Don’t like the smell either? Naturally, you probably wouldn’t. Do you like sweets or just a dislike for chocolate.

    I wish that I didn’t admire chocolate so much. Although I’m not a big “sweets” person, it’s probably my most well liked sweet.

    sorry, only just seen your message…oh I love sweets (unfortunately!) and I would eat chocolate but I try to avoid anything with caffeine in it as I don’t think it lkes me very much, hehe. I haven’t eaten chocolate for about 5 years and, sadly, it’s made me not even like the smell of it now either!

      Five years without chocolate? I can do w/o most sweets except chocolate; wish that weren’t true….You must like to bake? I’m more of main course guy and could live without most sweets. My favorite snack is peanut butter. Have you seen the movie “Meet Joe Black” with Brad Pitt? I like PB as well as Joe Black (Brad Pitt).

    Well then ick! What are some of your fav foods? Randomly communicating back and fourth via reply may not proper blog etiquette. Oh well…

    If I seem like I’m seeping with desparation for communication, it’s not totally true. Nobody reads my post….I did talk to one person who said it takes a while to get established. On the other hand, I could put out more effort to “write.”

    Mostly I like poetry, art and quotes. Don’t know much about art–but I love color and expression. I wrote a poem on paper today, and I will post it soon.

    Oh, it’s pretty cool chit/chatting with someone in Cambridge. Happy blogging!!

    Congratulations on losing the two stone, I know how hard it is.
    Thank you for subscribing to my blog, I do like yours as well and will be back for more visits 🙂

    My daffs are also just starting to bloom in the garden, love their sunny happy faces.

  5. Ha, I am terrible at math, too!! I had to take a graduate degree exam to apply to graduate programs in the States, and I did exceedingly well on the verbal and–get this—less than 50% on the math section. (Wow, Colleen.) And I’m a voracious reader, too! Were you a reader when you were young? I remember skimming 6 books a week when I was young..I was so excited to read the books, I barely got to reading them!

      Hey 🙂

      Thanks for your comment.

      Yes, I did read a lot when I was younger. I have always owned far too many books, hehe. Although I probably read more than I did then.

      Nice to ‘meet’ someone else who is terrible at maths 🙂

    I loved CHiPs growing up. When the theme song would come on, I’d run around the house and pretend I was riding a motorcycle. My uncle was a California Highway Patrolman, but looked nothing like neither Ponch nor John.
