  1. Savannah is also supposed to be the most haunted city in the South. Sherman did a number on it to rival the burning of Atlanta and it had history before that.

    Personally, I get more bad juju from New Orleans though.

    1. I’d love to go to New Orleans. I think the Myrtles Plantation is there? That’s one I want to see. I took a tour of Savannah and the guide told us about different locations that were haunted. I didn’t get the chance to check any out. Hopefully one day!! I love that word, juju. Lol!

      1. Truth; I love Zydeco music and all the culture I see in and around New Orleans on TV and such. Closest I’ve ever gotten to it was a little over a hundred miles in N. Louisiana though. It had my empathic warning system screaming so loud it was giving me a migraine. Shame, as part of me would really love to see it.

        Juju… Love the word too. First picked it from George of the Jungle cartoons when I was real little, LOL. Works great for anything supernatural.

      2. I believe in this!! I really feel like that’s what happened to me while walking through one particular room at Waverly Hills Sanatorium. The pain in my gut almost took me to my knees. Then the smell hit us both.

        Yes!! God bless George of the Jungle. Juju is just one of the best words ever!

      3. It’s actually a word from an African tribal dialect, but I don’t remember which one. It translates as magic or spiritual energy.

  2. It’s been a while since I touched one. My record for 3×3 is 8.2 seconds. Btw, I just tried it again and it’s 17.3 seconds lol. The cube hasn’t moved for some time and it’s not properly lubed. Excuses, I know 🙂

  3. 1. I don’t follow sports that much nowadays, but there was a time when I liked San Antonio Spurs. The whole team has this no-nonsense attitude and they only play basketball for the sake of playing. And Pop is an excellent coach.

    2. Beethoven, ‘cos why not?

    3. I know it’s impossible, but Mr. Bean.

    4. The Vienna Philharmonic when they visited Hong Kong.

    5. When witnessing a lot of stupid things occurring at the same time, though I have learned to just ignore them as much as possible.

    6. I was more foolish. Now, I’m wiser but foolish still.

    7. My home.

    8. To unlearn things. As a user of memory techniques (I’ve even used it professionally for performing “memory feats” before), I find it difficult to “unremember” the things that I memorized. For example, if I need to remember the arrangement of a shuffled deck of 52 cards, I would use a mnemonic. This would make me recall the position of each card if I think of the impromptu mnemonic that I used. However, if I have to do the same feat again, there could be a chance that I accidentally remember the previous mnemonic that I employed. Thankfully, this never happned to me during live performance, but it happened several times when practicing. This is also the case when doing a blindfold solving of the Rubik’s cube.

  4. 1)What is your favourite sports team? – I don’t have one, I detest sport.
    2)If you could meet any celebrity, who would you choose? – Celebrities don’t impress me much.
    3)Name a television series that you wish they would bring back with new episodes.
    There was a TV comedy series in the UK in the 1970s which I LOVE called The Good Life, I’d love to see some new episodes with the original cast, but unfortunately, 2 of the main 4 have died. 🙁
    4) What was your first concert?
    Can’t remember. It would have been classical.
    5) What overwhelms you? – Life.
    6) How different was your life a year ago? – It was before I started Blogging, so VERY.
    7) Where would you love to live? –
    I love living where I am. I wouldn’t mind a holiday home on the Isle of Wight though.
    8) What do you wish your brain was better at doing? –
    Reading the situation, editing what I say before I say it, remembering stuff, helping me overcome fears rather than think about them.
