Share Your World — News and Expiration Dates

Share Your WorldIt’s time once again for us to answer Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week. So, without further ado, let’s do this!

Where do you get your news?

My primary sources for news are: The San Francisco Chronicle, The Week magazine, the newsfeed on my iPhone, and MSNBC. And the Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Real Time with Bill Maher.

What ‘old person’ thing do you do?

As I am an “old person,” I would say that everything I do is an “old person” thing. I guess the most telling, though, might be that we typically time our dinner meal for as early as 5:00 pm and no later than 6 pm.

When was the coldest you’ve ever been? The warmest?

Coldest: my wife and I went to Barrow, Alaska, also known as Utqiaġvik, in 2007 to visit our son, where he got a job as a state court magistrate, his first job after graduating from law school. Barrow is one of the northernmost public communities in the world and is the northernmost city in the United States.

Warmest: Death Valley, California, where it hit 118°F when we visited it a few years back. But it was a dry heat!

Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine?

My philosophy is that if it’s not discolored, not fuzzy (assuming it’s not a peach), and doesn’t cause me to gag when I smell it, it’s still good to eat…for me, anyway.AAAD632E-CD95-4171-88F8-2B99BF32C9B9

FOWC with Fandango — News

FOWCWelcome to July 19, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “news.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
