Monday Quiz About Me

This Monday blog hop, hosted by Heather at Acting Balanced, gives 4 questions to be answered by everyone, and one question to be answered here on my blog.  Are you up to the challenge?  Here we go:

1. Has reading a book ever changed your life? Which one and why, if yes?
Of course the Bible has changed my life, but so did a book by Frances Chan called Crazy Love.  Just in the first couple of chapters I cried like a baby, which is very unlike me.  What a beautiful reminder of God's amazing love for us.

2. What was your favorite game to play as a child?
I liked playing Trouble with the pop-o-matic die.  I could play that for hours.  We also enjoyed playing Parchessi and Chinese checkers.  Barbie was very popular as well.

3. What person in history would you most like to meet?
Jane Austen.  I love her books.

4. Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself...
I used to be a Jehovah's Witness, I never learned to ride a bike, I'm the oldest of 12 kids.

And now for my question:

5.  What are gas prices like in your area?
I get gas at Costco, and in South Florida it's $3.83/gallon.  It costs over $60 to fill my tank.  I'm not happy about it.

I filled my tank for over $70 this week however in Canada we add about 20 cents to a litre of gas which is approx 4 litres to a US gal

Gas here in IL is $3.95 as of this morning - hat that.

Marti said...

Gas was 3.67 at QT this morning.

I think it's high $3.90s to $4. I had really wanted a car that runs on ethanol, but with the drought this year, I'm sure ethanol prices will be up. Time to think seriously about an electric car!

I loved Parcheesi and Trouble!

I loved riding a bike when I was a kid, then didn't for 25-30 years. One day a few years ago I decided to get another one and I LOVE going bike riding! You should try to learn. It's so much fun!!

I live in Central Florida and gas here is $3.68. It costs me about $100.00 to fill my van up.
