Mysterious Ways

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Mysterious Ways (1991)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In honor of St. Patrick's Day (this coming Tuesday), we're featuring one of Ireland's most successful exports, U2. What else is Ireland famous for?
Beautiful land
2) The Dublin studio where U2 recorded this song (and all of Achtung, Baby) is now a music store called Claddagh Records. U2 pilgrims from all over the world travel to the spot (Celia Street, Dublin 2). If we were to visit your neighborhood, are there any landmarks you could direct us to?
The Shell station and WKBN.
3) Lead singer Bono is rarely seen without his trademark sunglasses because he suffers from glaucoma. How is your vision? 20/20?
I don't know the numbers, but I know I just had to get new glasses for the second time in a year. Danged diabetes.
4) Bono and wife Alison were married in 1982 and are still together today. Who is the longest-married couple you know?
Omgosh, all of my family have been married for eons! If my aunts and uncles aren't widows or widowers, they have been married AT LEAST 60 YEARS!
5) When Bono inducted Frank Sinatra into the Grammy Hall of Fame, he applauded the older man's "swagger." Do you think you have swagger?
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahah no
 6) Bono has been honored by world leaders, including President Obama and Nelson Mandela and the Pope, for his philanthropy. Here's your turn to brag: tell us something you have received praise for recently.
Someone looking at the house told my realtor that I had the ''coolest colors'' in my house!  Now, make an offer ;)
7) Clearly Bono is the most famous member of U2. Who else is in the band?
I don't even know who U2 is.

8) On St. Patrick's Day, will you wear green?
I don't have any green!!
9) Will you enjoy a glass of green beer or maybe a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's?
ew and double ew!!

    1. Thank you Allison!! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You have long marriages in your family. Those are becoming a rarity these days.

    1. I am really blessed. My parents were married 60 years!! I was married to my 1st husband for over 20, and we are remarrying in June.

  3. Good luck selling the house and you have NO green????

  4. I have heard that Ireland is very beautiful too.

    1. My grandma went there when I was a kid. Even 50 years ago she took the most amazing pictures and brought back really cool things. I wish I could even IMAGINE being able to afford that trip. xoxo

  5. I love the flowers and colors of your blog. And, I hope you get good offers on your house! Ouch about the eyes. Big hugs.

    1. Thank you!! I get bored EASILY and sometime change my pictures too much. But I like this one!! Yeah, this diabetes was SLOWLY affecting my body in different ways. The older I get, the faster things go bad! Here's a big hug right back atcha. xoxo

  6. 60 years! I think that's so romantic! And even though I'm a spinster, I'm smart enough to know it couldn't have been easy, either.
