Questions from Usha Menon

1)  What is your favorite pass time?   I allow myself 1.5 hours a day to watch my favorite TV shows which have been prerecorded.  
They are American Idol, Scandal, Blacklist, and The Good Wife.

2)  How did you start blogging?  After publishing my memoir, I was encouraged by my publisher to set up a blog.  Before that (last fall) I didn't know what a blog was or why I needed one.

3)  Which is your favorite T V show?  Answered in Number 1

4)   What is your opinion about working ladies?  I come from the baby boomer generation where most women did not want to be stay-at-home moms.  They wanted careers.  I had both.  I ran businesses from my home, raised my children and homeschooled them as well.  I believe women can do it all, if they so desire and are ORGANIZED!

5)  Are you a party person?  I don't have the time or the desire.  I certainly enjoy entertaining but in small groups.

6)  Who is your favorite film star and why?  I really don't have a favorite.  I only tolerate great acting and there are too many leading men and women to choose one. One that comes to mind is Meryl Streep.

7) If you got power for a day, what change would you like to make in the country?  To crack down on the mismanagement of and wasted funds among politicians.

8)  A boy of a girl, whom do you prefer?  I am not sure what you mean.  I am married to a man.  I never cared if my children were boys or girls as long as they were healthy.

9)  What are your views about Indian media?  I live in North America so have not been exposed to it, if you are referring to radio, TV and films.

10)  What book have you read recently?  "Reviews Sell Books" by Christine Nolfi

11)  What do you prefer - love marriage or arranged marriage?  Arranged marriages in my country are very rare but I do know people marry for reasons other than love.  This was the case in my first marriage when I was 18 and it only lasted five years.

I would like to nominate the following eight bloggers for this award:
