Birthday Hodge Podge

Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Today is my birthday.  If you've answered today's questions add your link at the end of Joyce's post, and then go say hi to your neighbor.  Joyce asks that you do not link here if you have not answered the questions. While she understands the desire, she wants us all to know that this space is reserved on Wednesdays for the Hodgepodge only.  Thanks for understanding!

1. Speaking of April 15...what's the most 'taxing' thing you've done recently?  Taxes.  Just getting them ready for our accountant wears me out.  This year I promise to be better....I said the same thing last year an look where that got me.2. When did you last take a taxi somewhere and where was that somewhere?  Los Angeles...or maybe it was San Diego.  It was at the NEA convention.  I think it was Los Angeles.  We rented a car in San Diego.  I loved the freedom. 
3. What's something you can do today that you couldn't do a year ago?  Say I am employed by the Randolph County Board of Education.  After 25 years with the Alex City BoE I changed jobs and moved closer to home.  Crazy huh?
4. How often is chicken (in some form or fashion) on your menu at home? Which of the following would you most like to see on your table tonight....a chicken salad sandwich, your mom's fried chicken, a Chick-fil-A meal, Cracker Barrel's chicken n' dumplings, a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings, or 'hold the chicken, I'm a vegetarian'...?  We eat chicken often.  I like chicken and you can change it up with so many different flavors and preparation styles.  I have had chicken salad for lunch twice this week and chicken alfredo one night this week.  I can pretty much eat it anyway you can cook it. Chick-fil-A is a favorite but the nearest one is in another town.  We love Cracker Barrel's  chicken and dumplings too...but another they are rare treats.  We have a place here called Big Chick...everyone in town raves about it....but I am not a big fan. 
5. What was your favorite television program when you were a kid? What characters do you remember the most?  Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver.  TV was not something we watched often in my house.  We watched the news....and Ed Sullivan. 
6. What was the last piece of 'art' you made?  I did a folksy whimsical piece on canvas that has sunflowers, a couple of bees, and says You Are My Sunshine.  I am working on a guitar piece right now that is on a piece of wood.  Can't wait to get it done. 
7. What frustrates you most about the Internet?  I can say pop ups, slow loads, and hacking stuff.
8. Insert your own random thought here. I am taking part in the A-Z challenge.  I hope you will click here and go check mine out.

Sorry I wasn't over here yesterday. Happy (belated) Birthday! Hope you had a lovely day. I'm going to have to try that chicken and dumplings someday. I don't think we have any Cracker Barrels here in CA. Those are two wonderful TV programs and Ed Sullivan was always fun.
