It might of kind of be called a meme, but I don't really know what that means. The United States is a very big place but surprisingly to me, I have only ever connected with one blogger in the United States. Yes, my blog is a bit parochial, so I guess that is to be expected.
There is one who I feel I have connected with and I clearly recall how I came across her, so I shall lay upon her the responsibility to answer a few questions.
She has a gorgeous house, without it being grand, and lives in Ohio. At some point, I am saving it, I shall slip in 'down by the banks, of the old Ohio', but the time hasn't been right yet. She doesn't post quite as often now since she 'picked up', but no matter, she is still lovely.
So Daisy Jo,
Is politics relevant to you? Do you keep up with the election news?
How many people live in your town?
Does it have a Walmart? (Is this the status symbol of a US town?)
Do you shop in a multinational supermarket? Like a large company one?
Is it hot in your town in Ohio in the summer? What temp is a killer hot day? Do you have cooling airconditioning?
Which public utility company annoys you the most? Electric? Gas? Oil? Phone?
You must have central heating and a boiler/furnace. Is it fuelled by oil or gas? Is that your hot water heating system too?
Does your heating heat your whole house? (Here we can manage with just heating the living area in winter)
My council rates, that is the local government authority, are around AU$1,000, equivalent to $US880. Do you pay similar to some government authority?
Has there ever been street cars in your town? Is the public bus service decent? Is there a railway? Can you go to New York from your town by train?
Do you have a vacuum cleaner or a central vacuum system.
Do you get paid monthly or fortnightly. I would guess monthly. By cheque or bank deposit?
I reckon most of my Aussie readers would be quite interested in the answers if you have time. I am.
