The next 3-5 posters answer them..
Then the next person in, asks 5 questions of their own.
And so on...

1. Do you use use candles in your home? Real or flameless? Use flameless - nice to walk into warm candlelight on these early darkness nights of winter.
2. Wallpaper in your house? Which rooms? Wallpaper in bathrooms.. want it down.. someday
3. Coupon clipper or use apps? Are you a super shopper and use coupons to reduce bill extremely low? Clipper, but often expire before I use them. Only once or twice did I reduce my bill significantly when store had super doubles up to $2. I don't use most of what is available in coupons, so hard to reduce the bill.
4. Christmas shopping... how far along are you in fulfilling gift purchases for family and friends? Getting close!
5. What do you normally eat for breakfast every day? Change on weekends? Usually easy scrambled eggs w/cheese or omelette made in muffin cups so I can take and heat at work. Definitely do not want eggs on weekends after eating all week. :-) Usually no breakfast on weekends.

1. Halloween is just around the corner...do you give out candy? No and no kids stop by (very few in the neighborhood)
2. How has the weather been in October in your area? Was warm, the past week has given us 40s in mornings, 60-70 daytime, but may warm back up for a few days next week. I love the 60s.
3. Of the 50 United States, name one you haven't visited, but would like to? Why? Hawaii cause always been a dream or Alaska cause I'd love to see the beauties of the "untouched" areas and the animals.
4. Do you think there is just too much news nowadays? YES! I often do not watch it and only check out the weather or breaking news via email
5. How are you doing today? If I were to give an expected answer... great. I'm healthy other than the diabetes that I am not managing as I should, but I've been heading back towards depression again--feels like the devil is getting a foothold. Keep trying to go back to positive thinking to avoid that rabbit hole of depression. Actually just read excerpt from Joel Osteen's new book You Can You Will and it was encouraging. I can always tell when I need to go back to reading my Bible and listening to more sermons.

1. How often do you post gas prices? Do you play other games or participate in conversations on Gas Buddy? Post prices once or twice a week (I forget to look or forget to post when I get home). Very rarely do I post to a game unless I need a few points to "buy" ticket for gas card. Of course, I check this game about weekly.
2. What is your favorite candy? homemade fudge (not the soft kind); otc, snickers
3. What is your best prevention/treatment/remedy for the common cold? I always believed zinc, but I'm on my 2nd cold in 2 months. Maybe I didn't take enough. Now I have added Vit C and probiotics to build up immune system... and drinking more liquids
4. Any addictions to everyday items/foods? I wish I were addicted to water :-) Refined sugar is my addiction. I have to quit it cold turkey to make it stick, and then have slip ups and takes another commitment to quit. Also addicted to TV and computers. Harder to break those habits!
5. What's been bugging you lately? being underemployed, not enough money to remodel my 30 yr old house; being sick with cold; other health issues. (sorry about your down-sizing Ceeline. Hope you find something you like better very soon)

2. What is your favorite candy? Hershey's w/Almonds
3. What is your best prevention/treatment/remedy for the common cold? Vitamin C; drink lots of hot tea w/lemon(sometime a teaspoon of wine); stay warm. [I've never prevented a cold from happening.]
4. Any addictions to everyday items/foods? Does drink water count?
5. What's been bugging you lately? How we're going to pay all our bills(my job was downsized).

1. It's 4th of July Weekend... what are your plans? We cooked hamburger & peppers on the grill, then went to Pittsburgh, PA to watch the fireworks.
2. This week's poll... do you drive barefooted? Why, why not? Sometimes / I drove home the other day when we came home from the beach because I'd forgotten to bring my tenney's; sometimes my feet get hot while driving, and I'll slip off my shoes for a few miles(mostly on a highway when I know a Rest Area is close by).
3. Jealousy or envy? What are your definitions? Envy is wanting something someone else has to point that you feel you're a failure for not having that something; Jealously is, for example, not wanting your spouse to talk to the opposite sex to the extent that you basically give your spouse the 'evil eye.'
4. Are you in the path of Hurricane Arthur or remanants from it? No
5. Do you wear sunscreen when outside? How about when just walking between buildings/home and car? If I'm out in the sun for long periods of time(beach, amusement park, cookout). / Just to put it on when I walk to my car, or to check the mail, etc....I'm not out for more than a few minutes any time I do that. I will, however, apply sunscreen to my left arm when I am driving long distances...because my arm is out the window.

1. It's 4th of July Weekend... what are your plans? I had no plans. Only thing I did was put down dirt and mulch on flower bed
2. This week's poll... do you drive barefooted? Why, why not? I do and think it is safer than clunky shoes or flip flops/slide on shoes, or slippery socks/hoisery. I just take off my shoes (other than when wearing sneakers) and can feel the pedals and pressure on pedals better.
3. Jealousy or envy? What are your definitions? I heard before that jealousy is not wanting the other person to have their good fortunes since you do not have the same, and envy is wishing you had the same, but you are happy for the other person. (then, I heard someone say it entirely backwards from what I just wrote... jealousy seems like a much uglier word, is why I think it is so negative)
4. Are you in the path of Hurricane Arthur or remanants from it? NC was in the path on the coast, but we didn't even have a drop of rain from Arthur.
5. Do you wear sunscreen when outside? How about when just walking between buildings/home and car? No, I do not wear sunscreen, but I try to stay out of the sun other than walking to and from vehicle.

1. What are a couple of your favorite sayings/quotes? My favorite two sayings are -- you snooze, you lose and ... you siesta, no fiesta!

2. What is your favorite summertime fruit? Watermelon

3. At what point/amount of money spent on maintenance is it time to buy a new vehicle instead of repairing? Depends on the worth/condition of the car. I have a 2004 Ford Explorer with almost 100K miles on it .. and the AC is out ... not sure if I will even replace it. The kids drive it and figure if they want AC, they can pay for it.

4. Pierced ears? Do you wear studs, dangles, hoops? What is your absolute favorite pair of earrings? My ears are pierced ... I love all three studs, dangles, and hoops.

5. Hair color... au nauturele or what color do you dye your hair? How often do you touch up color? Get a cut? Color every 5 weeks and cut every three months or so.

1. What are a couple of your favorite sayings/quotes? It is what it is.
2. What is your favorite summertime fruit? Cantaloupe
3. At what point/amount of money spent on maintenance is it time to buy a new vehicle instead of repairing? Depends on how old the car is. Mine is a 2003 Saturn VUE...they no longer make these and it is 10+ years old...I would not dump more than 3,000 into it. I would only that high due to having no car payment.
4. Pierced ears? Do you wear studs, dangles, hoops? What is your absolute favorite pair of earrings? Ears are pierced and I like smaller earrings
5. Hair color... au nauturele or what color do you dye your hair? How often do you touch up color? Get a cut? My hair Color is au nauturele and I get it cut every other month. 1. What are a couple of your favorite sayings/quotes?

1. What are a couple of your favorite sayings/quotes? "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Phillipians 4:13) "For I know the plans I have for you" Jeremiah 29, "I don't know what I don't know." "When I know better, I do better" (paraphrase Maya Angelou)
2. What is your favorite summertime fruit? love them all, but watermelon is favorite
3. At what point/amount of money spent on maintenance is it time to buy a new vehicle instead of repairing? I'm weighing that now. Just spent $1200 on a 14 yr old jeep and spent $1400 last year. That's almost enough for a car payment each month, but I love my jeep for the room to carry things. I usually drive locally (10 min to work) and never much further than 50 mi, so seems unnecessary to have a new vehicle.
4. Pierced ears? Do you wear studs, dangles, hoops? What is your absolute favorite pair of earrings? Pierced; preferred hoops cause I had to have 14kt gold for ears, but discovered I can now wear sterling silver, so enjoying some dangles. My new fav pair is a pink pearl dangle on a silver drop.
5. Hair color... au nauturele or what color do you dye your hair? How often do you touch up color?

1. Do you ever get muscle cramps? What is your home remedy? I only seem to get them when I was pregnant ... but then I would stand up and stretch out my leg/foot.

2. What is the best way you have ever used to lose weight? Stop eating LOL

3. Do you or anyone close to you have sleep apnea? If so, how long did it take to get used to CPAP machine? Hubby has had one for about 4 years ... I think he used it 5 times ... my cousin said it took her about 5-7 nights to get used to it.

4. How old is your car(s)? Do you plan to replace anytime soon?
Car #1 - 2012 Ford Escape - Love it!! 21K miles
Car #2 - 2009 Ford Focus - Great car about 70K miles
Car #3 - 2004 Ford Explorer - Great to pull boat and haul things including the 4 kids when they were younger. Now that they are all older, we really don't go out in one car very often.
Car #4 - 2004 PT Cruiser - Hate, hate, hate it!! About 110K miles on it ... daughter uses it for school/work. I am sure as soon as it breaks down again, we will get rid of it. Hopefully the kids left at home (22, 20, 18) will be buying their own cars soon. My car insurance payment is like my mortgage. Luckily oldest son (almost 25) just got his own car so I got to take him off my insurance. He bought a 2010 Ford Focus with 30K miles on it and loves it!

5. Is your current job doing what you like to do? If not, what would be your preference of jobs to do? I work in HR and love it.

1. Do you ever get muscle cramps? What is your home remedy? I do. Never thought of needing calcium. Will try the milk. I usually stretch and walk if in leg, and try some gatorade and sometimes mustard (by mouth). Lately get cramp in bicep. Move arm and it goes away. Maybe I need to do some bicep curls to avoid.:-)
2. What is the best way you have ever used to lose weight? Phen-fen didn't work for long for me, and yes very dangerous. I lost the most counting calories and exercising a lot. But, modified atkins/south beach diet seems to be the only one I can follow of late.
3. Do you or anyone close to you have sleep apnea? If so, how long did it take to get used to CPAP machine? I have it. Got cpap on Tues and really struggling to get used to it. I actually dread going to bed now, so I stay up even later to avoid and am even more exhausted. Get sick feeling in stomach when I have to use the machine and usually take it off mid-sleep. Insurance is not going to pay for it if I don't start using it!!
4. How old is your car(s)? Do you plan to replace anytime soon? My jeep is 14.5 yrs old, around 70k miles. I pray it continues to work.
5. Is your current job doing what you like to do? If not, what would be your preference of jobs to do? No, I'd prefer to be retired. :-) But, since I'm on second career (not by choice), I took underemployed, underpaid position as staff assistant and there's nothing challenging other than the amount of work. Prefer to do project management. At my age, too late to go back to get a masters degree... cost would not ever be realized in salary before I die. Just need to keep looking. :-)

1. Do you believe in the power of prayer? Resounding YES!! God is listening and answers prayers... in His time and His way, not ours.
2. Spring has sprung...what was the first day of Spring like where you live? It was such a beautiful sun shining day, temps in high 50s after a 3 days of cold, rain, sleet, snow, freezing rain, and rain. Was a wonderful start to Spring! And today was 78! Tomorrow down to 50s and rain and 40s and possible snow and rain on Tues, but it's going to get better!!
3. Dancing With The Stars has returned...who are you rooting for? I didn't watch all of it, so no favorites. I do not know why Billy Dee Williams agreed to do DWTS. He is only walking and making himself look bad. Truly admire the paraplegic woman... she did so very well.
4. Do you know anyone that has a pacemaker? If yes, how much has his/her life changed because of it? Do not know anyone..
5. Cats or Dogs or Both? Long-haired or short-haired? Dogs, mostly long hair, but love labs with short hair
