More About Me

More about me:  JD2718
Jonathan at JD2718 tagged me with this new meme and I've taken long enough to respond to it. Of course, we have to start with the rules:
  1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
  2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
  3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
  4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was teaching mathematics in an alternative high school in Connecticut. I had been a widow for four years. My children (here, here, here, and here) had finished graduating high school and I was a grandmother to Wingnut!

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
  • Fill out registration form for a summer class for Teaching Mathematics to LD and/or ADHD Students.
  • Continue work on Probabilities Reasoning Workshop I am taking online.
  • Read
3) Snacks I enjoy:
  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie
  • Butter Pecan
  • Willy Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler
(I'm on the Ben & Jerry's Diet)

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
  • Do all the work on my house that needs to be done, including painting and floors and roof.
  • Get all the furniture I need.
  • Get a real car and get rid of this Saturn.
  • Put aside just enough so that I could retire and be rich.
  • Give the rest to my kids.
5) Three of my bad habits:
Why do they always ask this?

6) 5 places I have lived:
  • Connecticut
  • Azores
  • Virginia
  • back to Connecticut
  • Vermont
7) 5 jobs I have had:
  • Campaign worker for Lowell Weicker, Jr (even though I was a Democrat. But I was getting paid to make campaign calls and was in high school).
  • A life guard.
  • A Manpower worker at a factory that printed and mailed national magazines. I got Paul Newman's magazine ready to be mailed!
  • Selling books at Christmas time in Hartford's best department store, G. Fox & Co., where I met my husband.
  • Office manager for my husband's electronics business.

6 people I want to know more about:
  1. Sandy Carlson because she is so spiritual and supportive.
  2. Colin Campbell because his posts are interesting and his sense of humor is neat.
  3. byrningbunny because she is so fascinating and lives in a wonderful place.
  4. Misty who is becoming a great friend.
  5. Jams O Donnell because his photographs are wonderful and he loves cats.
  6. Amar because of his music, mathematics and cats.



  1. Thanks fior the tag Andree. I won't be able to do this until next week but watch this space.

  2. Hey Andree, I'm having problems with Wordpress and my computer, so it may be a few days. I survived the MIL's visit, so I'll have time to delve into the computer issues as soon as the little man adjusts to all the recent changes in his life. Thanks for the tag! :)

  3. Hi Andrée - thanks for the tag, we'd be happy to participate. Probably next week for us as well. If I understand the rules, correctly, I have to answer those specific questions...

    That is an interesting set of past jobs, BTW. Lowell Weicker did something at my graduation from Yale in 1995, I can't quite remember his specific role...

  4. The Azores, huh?

  5. Hello Andree

    Are you still in mud season? We have some nice autumn weather here.

    Thanks for the tag. I did one that was very similar to this last month.

    You can read it here.
