25 Random Things About Me (or Damn Memes redux)

I have been given a finger wagging about my blogging. Twice in the last couple of weeks. Both times to start blogging more.

“More?!?” I thought, considering the vast amounts of time I’ve spent on & the CheapEats blogs lately, but I knew “more” really meant “more on ”.

So when I was tagged, twice, with the same meme in under 24 hours (four times now) I knew it was the perfect time to post something.  Remember, you or someone like you, asked for this.
