This is my response to Cee’s Share Your World – November 13, 2107
Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?
We do that often, especially in Laguna Lake. My husband and I love to walk around Laguna Lake which is 0.77 miles around. We walk around the lake twice, then find a shaded bench and sit down. The lake is a home to many kinds of ducks, Egyptian Geese, turtle and many sea creatures. The irrigation system keeps the water of the lake flowing while there is stillness on a calm day. In the summer, the ducks enjoy their lazy nap by tugging their heads under the wings. We relax and watch people doing their leisure fishing, riding their horses, their bikes, jogging, walking their dogs, or walking their babies in strollers.
When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?
We do all of them. My husband has a large rechargeable industrial lantern by the bed upstairs. We have different sizes of flashlights. When the electricity is out due to a storm or other reasons, I usually turn on a small flashlight to find the lighter to light the candles. As soon as I have five or six candles lit, I would turn off the flashlight. Candles light up the immediate areas around each candle. With several candles. We could see quite well walking around the house.
Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?
Given $10,000 for my own use would only benefit me. But given $100,000 to give to strangers would benefit many people. I would give $500 to each individual and $1000 to each family. So, it would benefit more than 100 individuals and families.
