Premios Dardo Award

Jennifer at Goats in the Garden kindly bestowed me this award. If you haven't visited her blog you really should. Jennifer is a real sweety and a top goat guru in my book. She also writes an interesting and enjoyable blog.

The Premios Dardo Award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.

Here are the instructions that came with the award:
STEP 1: Respond and rework. Answer the following questions on my blog, replacing one question that I dislike with a question of my own invention.
STEP 2: Add one more question of my own.
STEP 3: Tag eight other bloggers.
OK, here goes...
1) What is your favorite day of the week?
I would say Sunday, a day of rest. At our farm, we only do the necessities as far as work and enjoy the remainder of the blessed day.
2) What is your biggest fear?
Losing my son.
3) What was your worst subject in school?
That would be Algebra.
4) Who did you hug last?
The Sundance Kid (our black Angora buck). He always gets a morning hug after feeding.
5) What websites do you visit when you go online?
A few blogs (see blog list to side), a couple of goat groups & bulletin boards, a couple of craft shopping sites.
6) What was the last item that you bought?
A new muffler for the tractor.
7) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Clicking the heels of her ruby red slippers…she says... there is no place like home. I really don't like to travel.
8) If you woke up tomorrow and were the opposite sex what is the first thing you would do and why?
Probably die of shock. LOL
9) Has a celebrity's hair cut ever influenced your own hairstyle?
Can’t say that any have… oh wait… Farrah Faucet’s hairstyle was the have to have style when I was younger.
10) What was the last movie you watched?
Mama Mia!
12) If you had a whole day to yourself with no work, commitments, or interruptions, what would you do?
I am really not quite sure, it has been 8 years since I have had such an opportunity. (Well, other than when I was physically sick and unable to get out of bed.) I would probably spend the day with my parents doing whatever they wanted to do.
13) If you were to win the Powerball , what would you do with the money (besides invest it)?
Oh this I have thought about before...
First I would pay off all our debt, our family members debt and a couple of dear friends debt.
I would make sure they had whatever they needed to improve their quality of life.
I would set up our retirement funds and plans. Pay for our funerals.
I’d set up a trust fund, so my son would want for nothing when I am gone.
I’d pay for all the younger ones in the family college education and go back to school myself.
I would pay for and send my parents on a cruise also let them choose the vacation of their lifetime send them wherever they wanted to go.
Jim could quit his job and do what he has always wanted to do…be a pig farmer. He could also buy those cows he has always wanted.
I would buy the property next to us, buy or build homes for and move my son, sister and parents out here (if they would move here).
I would buy a new barn, tractor, a few select pieces of farm equipment (for cutting & baling hay, mowing) and Jim a new truck. (All these things Jim has been wanting for many years).
I would buy and have a storm shelter installed.
I would buy solar panels and a windmill. (I would love to go completely "green" and be off the grid).
I would like to have an area on the farm for a goat rescue facility.

14) When was the last time you laughed, really laughed out loud?
Yesterday, we try to find humor in our daily lives. They say laughter is the best medicine.
15) If you had a choice of places to live, where would it be?
If there is such a place that never has snow, ice storms, tornadoes, hurricanes… basically no type of severe weather and the average daily high temp is roughly 70 degrees, low in the 50’s I am so there.

16) If you could have lunch with any one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be?
For me it would have been Australian Naturalist and TV personality Steve Irwin. Wouldn’t that have been a fun day!

According to the rules and keeping with said rules of this award...I need to pass this award on to 8 wonderful people with great blogs.
So I am passing on to
So guys if you feel so inclined to accept, grab the award and play it forward.
Oh for those who may have noticed yes question #11 was missing :)

LOL - Your ideal weather preferences are identical to mine. Maybe I'd like it a hair colder. Thanks for the nom! We're headed out to the mountains tonight, but I'll get back to it after we come back on Monday. Have a great day!

Give me a holler, I want to move next door. I visited Santa Cruz, CA this summer and that was pretty close. Mike would NEVER move away from his family.
