Hey everyone, hope you are well :) Saw there hasn't been a cafe posted for a couple days so thought I'd post it for today. Theme is questions or random, whatever you prefer ;) Oh also for those who live in the western hemisphere (North America) remember the clocks go ahead 1 hour tonight.

Here's some questions for those who enjoy or feel like answering some or all of them.

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
2. Have you ever travelled to another country?
3. Do you like where you currently live?
4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
5. Are you glad it is almost spring?

Thanks for the tag @JMG
1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go? Maybe to Rochester, NY, because both my sister and my best friend are there.
2. Have you ever travelled to another country? Yes. I have been to Canada, Switzerland, France. Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands. I only spent a day or two in Switzerland and only one night in Denmark, but I still count them. (Denmark was supposed to just be a layover in the Copenhagen airport on the way to Amsterdam, in which case I wouldn't say I'd been there, but my flight got delayed and caused me to miss the connection, so the airline gave me a hotel voucher for a night and due to that, I did leave the airport. And for Switzerland I flew into the airport in Geneva IIRC because the place I was staying with my host families in France was close to the Swiss border, and we spent some time hanging out in Geneva later.)
3. Do you like where you currently live? I like it, but it's upsetting to me that I've now lived in Pittsburgh for almost twice the amount of time I lived in San Francisco for.
4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
I don't drive currently, so I'd want to sell it.
5. Are you glad it is almost spring?
I think so. I like winter, but spring is always so refreshing.

I guess I'll be replying to a lot of Jim's Cafe threads since I don't even want to make my own threads, especially in the Suicidal Thoughts and Feelings section. I know, another low point. These things are quite soon, like every 3 days.

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
- Somewhere snowy with pine or birch forests, like the Scandinavia, Russia or Canada.

Have you ever travelled to another country? - No, I haven't. It's not easy doing so right now.
Do you like where you currently live?
- Yes, I do.
If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
- Sell it, since I don't know how to drive and I don't have a garage or a place large enough for a car.

Are you glad it is almost spring?
- Yes. There won't be as much festivals as usual, though.

Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in the hand
Life is good today, life is good today

Canada

3. Do you like where you currently live?

No, I'm working on changing it.

4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?

Drive it for a while, show it off, sell it.

Thanks for the invite @JMG

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
I miss traveling, so anywhere is the right word in the current situation. But if I even get to choose...maybe Jamaika.

2. Have you ever travelled to another country?
I've been traveling as a backpacer since I was 16.

3. Do you like where you currently live?
Very much.

4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
I'd keep it if I liked it better than the one I have.

5. Are you glad it is almost spring?
Most definitely!

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?

First two places would be Germany and Ireland since those are the countries where most of my heritage is from and I can speak the languages.

2. Have you ever travelled to another country?

I have been to Mexico when about 12 but it was only Laredo and the bordering Mexican city which is not really seeing the real country as opposed to one of the border towns. My mom and brother went back a year or so later while I stayed with my grandparents and heard a huge difference when going deep into the nation.

3. Do you like where you currently live?

I do. I love the peace and quiet and small town lifestyle. I also enjoy that 5 minute drive and I can: fish, hunt, watch nature and wildlife and camp out, although I have gotten to an age where camping is more fun in Spring and Fall.

4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?

Depends on the car. Win a new pickup, fine. A new Ferrari, could not afford to keep it.

5. Are you glad it is almost spring?

Yes, still cool enough but hopefully without any more deep freeze storms.

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
Europe would be nice.


2. Have you ever travelled to another country?
No, but I would love to.

3. Do you like where you currently live?
Yes, it's a pretty good place.

4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
Maybe sell it, or let someone else drive it, since I don't drive at all.

5. Are you glad it is almost spring?

For sure, even though it's hard to tell now since I'm not doing the best emotionally.

Looking for people who will accept me for who I am

Hey, JMG *hugThanks for the invite.

1. Italy or Greece. I love classical mythology and would love to see the monuments dedicated to one of my favorite subjects.

2. The only time I've ever left the continental United States was when I took a cruise to the Bahamas years ago.

3. Yes, but I'm NOT proud of what this country has become over the last four years.

4. I would definitely sell it. I like what I'm driving right now. It's an older vehicle, but it fits me, like a sofa or a pair of jeans. Not much to look at, but it's comfortable.

5. Yes and no. Not a fan of warmer weather, but it does mean I'm one season closer to next fall.

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
Grayling Michigan, camping and fly fishing for trout. The AuSable river is a world famous trout stream and the scenery in the spring is glorious.
2. Have you ever travelled to another country?
The only other country I have been to is Canada. I just don't have the money to travel much.
3. Do you like where you currently live?
I love where I live now. I share a house with 3 other guys so the rent is cheap, all of my stuff is here, I have half of a garage to keep my car in.
4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
If I won a new car I would have to pay the taxes so I would sell it and buy a really nice used car.
5. Are you glad it is almost spring?
Spring is my favorite season. Death comes back to life, blossoms on the trees, the light green hue of the trees as they bud, going outside without a coat.

I am makiing good progress on the jewelry box for my daughter. I hope to have it done by the end of the week. I am using maple with cherry accents. I bought read velvet to line the bottoms so it compliments the cherry, a neat clasp and SOSS barrel hinges for the lid.

1. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?

The two places I want to go to are covered in snow (glacier NP and Alaska) so I'm inclined to go to Europe
2. Have you ever travelled to another country?

S Korea for a business trip; England with my daughter and Canada

3. Do you like where you currently live?


It's ok, near the woods, near the ocean and close to family
4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?


Sell it as I like my present car. Although if it was the same model i would keep it and sell my present one.
5. Are you glad it is almost spring?
Spring is not my fav season but yeah, I am looking to get outside this year

Thanks for the tag @JMG Its my weekend and I have time to answer your questions today. Week days are busy so the later opening of the cafe suits me fine.

1.If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you want to go?
America to visit my BFF. I rarely feel excited about anything but I think I would be if I knew I was going there.
2. Have you ever travelled to another country?
Many years ago. I did go to America when I was 16 and Austria when I was 17. I used to play in a concert band and we traveled once a year to do concerts and competitions. Out America trip was a 2 week tour of the south east coast and we visited New York, Washington, Long Island etc. It was a trip of a life time.
3. Do you like where you currently live?
Yes. I think so. I like my house. I like the area. The only down side is that even though I have lived here for 20 years I don’t know anyone. There is nothing keeping me here. If I moved away no one would notice.
4. If you won a new car would you want to keep it & drive it or sell it for the $?
Definitely sell for the cash. I have a lot of diy in the house I’d rather do than have a new car.
5. Are you glad it is almost spring?
Yes. Big relief 😅 Roll on the lighter days and the daffodils. In need of a bit of a lift.

Enjoy your Sunday, group hug to all. *grouphug2 Xx
