From @IreneVincent to @silvermist to me! Here are a few of my favorite things. Favorite Flower: Orchids, African Violets and Irises. (Not quite true. There's hardly a flower that I don't like but I had to narrow it down for this discussion.) Favorite Wild Animal: Fox; specifically, the red fox. Does this count as a wild animal? Favorite Movie: “Imitation of Life” (the 1959 remake starring Lana Turner, John Gavin). Made an impression on me as a child that never got unimpressed. Favorite Dessert: Cheesecake (any flavor) or chocolate brownies with chocolate icing. Favorite car: Chevy Surburban, 1985 model. Navy blue. Served my family well for almost a decade. Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Pineapple juice. Or pineapple juice mixed with another flavor like mango or peach, etc. Favorite poem: “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1874–1963). Favorite Leisure Activity: Used to be watching BBC mystery and comedy shows. At present, it's watching historical period K-dramas. Don't know how long this will last. Enjoying for now though! Also, I like collecting quotes. Favorite Jewelry: Nothing in particular. Earrings are nice though.
Learn all you wanted to know about red foxes with pictures, videos, photos, facts, and news from National Geographic.

That movie might be shown on a channel like TCM (Turner Classic Movies).

@silvermist - What? Hallmark I could do without but Turner Classic Movies? That's like wiping out cinema history!

Pineapple juice and pineapples in general make my teeth feel really gritty. Am I the only one this happens to? It makes it super unbearable to even enjoy the fruit.

Oh no! You're not the only one. Eating fresh pineapples hurts because it always cuts my tongue and pineapple juice is gritty. But I love the taste, so I suffer through it! LOL.
